The UGLY Factor.

So no doubt you heard about the UGLY Meter App. What I don't get is all the people that are out there paying for it. Just line right up, dish out your money to be told, you're beautiful, you're average, or you're ugly. It's based on symmetry.

Look I don't have a problem with people working a hard and making a buck,  but really I can just see it now some girl who thought she was a 10 crying because this app told her that she's an 8. Oh wait maybe even a 5. Why does this annoy me?

Because we don't need an app to tell us whether or not we look good. No I don't think it's a fun thing to do. I think there will be people with insecurities that will take this apps reading of whether or not they are attractive to heart. As a society we are obsessed with how we look, this is just another symptom of our disease.

I'm attractive, I'm not pretty when I cry and I know enough not to let me smile merge into a grin when I'm in a picture. I didn't need an app to tell me all of that.That's my two cents, which is all the  money this apps creators will be getting from me.

I'm with you. I shudder to think of an impressionable teenage girl getting her self-esteem kicked in the teeth.

I couldn't agree more, Chudney.

The sad part is, while no doubt it's going to affect teenagers, there are adults out there who deal with body image issues as well. Thanks for stopping by guys.
