Do you get mad if someone calls you ugly??

Would you be offended if someone calls you ugly even though you know you're not attractive but you think you're okay/average? Even though you know you're average, okay but you're not considered pretty in the eyes of people- would you be offended if someone calls you ugly? For me, I know I'm not pretty, but I have pretty features like who I am and the person I am. I'm not offended if people call me ugly (I have been called it once or twice back in high school by a guy who I crushed on but I know he didn't mean it cause he talks to me all the time) but even hearing it from him, it hurt a little but then again it didn't because why would you waste your time calling someone ugly? That just shows they care or something because they have nothing better to say or that's how I think of it =)

Honestly, I don't care what people think. Look, I never looked at myself as good looking or ugly. I don't think I am good looking but that does not matter to me. I know I am no Brad Pitt and I truly don't care. People can call me ugly all day because to me they are the true ugly people. Ugly comes from the inside not the outside.

Before I would've gotten mad because that is how I use to felt about myself. I use to look in the mirror and hate my face so much. But, nowadays I really take it lightly because that isn't how I feel about myself anymore. In my heart I know that I am ugly; I need someone else's approval for me to think or know that I am pretty.

No, I wouldn't get mad at such a thing as petty as that. I'd have to be in a very bad mood to get mad at that. If you know you're not ugly and even if you think that you are average, I think I'm average too lol, but don't let that get to you. You know you aren't ugly and that is all that matters. They are probably the ones who are ugly or just been teased themselves.

I would be if the person saying that really meant it and she/he is not in the position of calling other people "ugly", because they're not attractive! Well, I've experienced what I said above, and being me, I told her to look in the mirror and rate herself too... I know it was bad of me, but really! I don't call anybody "ugly", especially if I don't know them! And I think that everyone has their own beauty...

lol..I totally agree with you! I mean, if the person is going to call you ugly, he/she should be extremely beautiful otherwise they can't call you that. At least, that's what I think. No one never called me ugly, at least not in my front..lol! But, if someone do, I'll give the same response as you.

This has never been an issue for me.I have however been called fat and that always bothered me and still does actually. I hate being down graded as if I am below some because of my weight. I am very healthy and always am on the go. I am not huge, I am curvy and have big bust and thighs. I hear that I am pretty, but I am not sure since I have a distorted view of what I actually look like. But it should not bother you about what anyone says. They really mean very little if they want to throw out insults in the grand scheme of things, you know?

I will simply say thank you for telling me that. As we all know, we cannot please everybody, as the beauty depends on the eyes of the beholder. Nevertheless, Calling names can be ignored though a person doing this means no wisdom at all lol :-)

there is no point in that , its kinda like a battle with yourself and you never repeat it like reciting a poem to yourself and then they chase you all over the place and my mind has this scene that is so cliche the you in the dark and then flash here and there that's how it seems but when you ask it yourself you just don't know and indecisive about it . I don't like it even if it's compliment - it is obvious and seem suspicious and I can't explain it and I will neither complicate things by aggressive verbal confrontation or accept it.

I think that's the worst thing someone can say to another person and it is highly disrespectful. I think that the person that refers to someone else as ugly has a lot of problems in their own life and they need to sort things out for themselves. Yes, I would be offended if someone referred to me in such a way. I for one would never talk to another person like that. I still believe in the saying that you only deserve respect if you give respect first. In truth I don't have any time for people like that, they are just a waste of space in my view! You need encouraging and supportive people around you. Andrew

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Just because someone might think that i was ugly is not a great reason to het angry. It is just how someone might see you in the world. how you see yourself is what is important.

Of coarse not why would I be, for me I'm not ugly only average.Most of us are, maybe there is nothing better to say about me that is why. Mostly those who say that are just joking or want to get your attention.Ugly don't start with letter I, but it start with letter U.Thanks for sharing...

No not really now I don't think so, he used to really bugs me make me feel really self-conscious bugs now I'm older I can judge for myself whether I am good looking or not and it's actually very shallow and someone to go around saying that someone is ugly.

I think nobody would really tell you straight in your face that you're ugly. I don't think it's something we're really capable of. However, if I find myself in a situation when I overhear it myself and I'm sure he/she meant it, then perhaps I would check myself to try to see if they were truthful about their thoughts. Though, I'm pretty sure I'm not ugly because a lot of people tell me that I am gorgeous. hahahaa.. I guess that person is just insecure because she doesn't have my personality and my physical features. hahahaha.. Anyhow, why would it matter if people think that you're ugly if you know for sure that you are a good person, are neat, and haven't intentionally stepped on the toes of anyone? You just need to know when to let things go and when to exert effort on it. For all we know it's just envy that's causing them to say things like that.

well i have to be honest, i don't take such comment well. once when i was in secondary school a friend of my dad gave me such comment but he did not say the ugly word directly but he said," you are not beautiful" out of the blue while visiting our home; i was serving refreshment when he said that. Well the opposite of beautiful is ugly right. It really hurt my feeling and as a result i keep on looking for that ugliness that he said about me. I always picture myself as pretty even though i'm not that the photogenic type. Such comment really left a mark in my self-esteem because it made me compare myself to others. I like to see beautiful people but i feel like i'm the ugliest even though i know it is not true. I always show to others that i am a confident woman but deep down i know i still can't fight this demon of low self-esteem. i used to like having my photo taken but know i like to help take photo of others. anyway i think i did left my dad's friend a remark he won't forget after he said that nasty thing to me. i told him, "well i might not be beautiful, but at least i'm not dumb" ... just to point out that his daughter might have the look but what is the use if she did not finish her school and married young.

If i am ugly, i don't have to be called that. I have a name in which you can call me. It is a bad trait to be calling persons names, that pertains most specially to their appearance. We are all God's children and we are all equal in His eyes, so that should also be our attitude.
