You know, I'm pretty sure this is how a lot of people work;
and it may be a weird concept to think about, but this is pretty much how it is;

People call each other ugly all the damn time.
I think I actually know the answer. 
Every time you look at someone, you're thinking, "Am I attracted to this person?"
and often you are not. So then you think, "ew." Because you probably only find a
certain variety of appearances attractive.
People look at each other and think, "I would never date you. I have no desire to
fuck you. Therefore, you are disgusting."
And that is bullshit.
Because your sole purpose is not to please others with your appearance. 
Your sole purpose is not to be objectified. 
You are more than your appearance. 
If someone calls you ugly, it isn't because the way you look is wrong. 
It's because the way they are looking at you is wrong.

unrealistic expectations enforced by the media and eurocentric beauty
standards and the beauty as an ultimate goal for girls being enforced
from early chikdhood are a lot of it too

yes. and over sexualization 
Kennan says:   4 November 2014   959968  
sexualization as catering to the male gaze yh
sexualization as an expression of ur own sexuality is cool doe
so is catering to the male gaze if that's what u enjoy independently
of the patriarchal expectation for women to seek male validation
idk i'm tired but yeah

also i'm not sure being ugly is really so bad??  like? ?
ok ur ugly and that's cool bc u don't have to be attractive bc u don't
need romance or sexuality to be a valid human life idk man

Yeah, I think I get what you're saying 

And I mean, I wouldn't give a fuck if someone called me ugly
Unless it was someone who I really liked and cared about 
But I was thinking more about like..
13-year-olds who are emotionally vulnerable 
And being called ugly scars them for life
