"Ugly" is such a cruel word to use against or to describe someone.
I understand that people have preferences/standards, but is it really necessary to call people you don't find attractive "ugly"? I don't believe so because someone thinks they're beautiful. Plus, it's destructive. It can lead to all sorts of problems but hardly anyone I know (or so it seems) cares. It hurts so much to hear or read that word.
I can't even say or think the word, even if the person is on television. I don't want anyone to feel the way I felt when the word was used against me. It hurt so much. I still have issues with it but I'm a lot better than I used to be.
Everyone is beautiful.
I'm by no means an angel for using this word. I used to use it against other people to. (Believe me I was a horrible person back then. I still am but a better person now.) Plus, I feel contradictory and a hypocrite. I don't want pity, but I want people to be aware of this. It won't stop people from using it, because that's just how some people are.
God, I hope no one misunderstands me. If so, I'll be sure to clarify. Also, if you use the word, it's okay. It's a normal thing to do, I'm just sensitive over it.
