I understand that some people feel self-conscious about their appearance, but if they don't want to put a real picture up or if their parents won't allow them, then I don't think that they should put any picture up. I realize that Hina said that this was a website where you can be anonymous. But there's a difference between making people believe you look like someone you're not to making up your whole identity and personality. :/ Let the debate begin.

I dislike fakes alot. To be honest it seems like some people do it just because of
insecurity. Some people would say that it's okay to do that because it's the internet. 
Well faking is the same thing as lying.
You see a person and actually believe that their this kind of person. Even though some
people aren't shallow enough to only like a person for their looks they still trust that
person and when they realize that their actually faking themselves it's a bit
heart-breaking to know that you're friend lied to you :/

But on the other hand,
Some fakes are caused by that insecurity because of other people.
"Fat", "Ugly"
Those two words :/
In real life a person must've gotten those insults before. And it's the internet also so
they just decide that they don't want to face those insults again.
Some people are actually the cause of fakes.

Fakes not only fake their appearance, but they fake who they actually are. Fakes are ashamed of who they are. I don't like them. End of story. //Short argument is short.

I just don't like fakes. People who claim to be one way when they're another, people that use pictures that they claim are of themself but are, people who get a kick out of lying about themselves, or lie because they think it's cool. Anonymous just means that no one knows who you are in real life. There is a huge a difference between being anonymous and being a fake. Kupika's not totally anonymous anymore, but that doesn't mean that it's okay to lie about yourself.

Just to be devil's advocate, what about people who fake their pictures only because of self-esteem issues? They act like who they are, but they have a different picture up. How do you feel about something like that?

If you can't put of a picture of yourself for self-esteem reasons, then for the love of
Dog, don't use someone else's picture.
Because then someone will drag out how fake you and and then you'll feel even crappier
about yourself and how you were a fake, blah blah blah.

True, but once again (as DA), does anyone really differentiate between people who fake because of stuff like above, or people who do it just for fun?

Some people are either going through some issues or problems that lessen their confidence. Maybe they were called "FAT, UGLY, BAD, HIDEOUS, ETC." &now they want some praise instead. :/ But faking someone is not good. I faked Jack Skellington once on MySpace, but HUSH. .________________. OVERALL. FAKE IS JUST THE AFFECT CAUSED BY SOMEONEE.

Fakes are embrassing to me, personally. Something happened in their lives, teasing,
bullying, whatever. Just be real with it. People in this world arent the cookie cutter
perfect world we think it truely is. People say things we dont wanna hear, and to me,
fakes dont wanna hear it, so that the fake other people, just so we make and form the
cooke cutter life. We dont, we have friends and people who understand us for being real.

But sometimes faking people
is just the only way of getting praise&confidence.
They're desperate for attention
and they want like

So, basically what people think is, it's better to have no pics up and be real than have pics up and be fake?

It's not that they're just self-concious, though. I'm rather self-concious, but I'm not a faker. They would rather people see someone else and think it's them than to have no pictures up and have people have no idea what they look like.

It's not about being self-conscious.
I am worried about my appearance, but if people don't like it, then what can I do?
