ATTENTION DDN SALUTERS:

PLEASE stop saying you're ugly!

You are NOT ugly, therefore it doesn't need to be said. I have noticed several salutes lately where everyone says they look ugly, fat, etc.

IT'S NOT TRUE!

You're perfect just how you are.

Also, this could be considered fishing for compliments. What I mean by this is how you say you're ugly, and then everyone responds saying how pretty/cute/hot you are, whatever.

Fishing for compliments is HIGHLY FROWNED UPON. Please don't do it!

Dude. Being a mod, I've seen more salutes then most, and let me assure you - every single person, in every single salute, makes a comment about themselves being ugly.

I think it's intended as self-deprication, but by the time you've heard it 9,000 times, it's just old.

^I agree Theresa. Every post (mostly by the girls of DDN) of salutes, the member degrades themself.

It bugs the crud outta me.

Although I agree that people shouldn't be writing degrading things about themselves, I don't agree that it's always "fishing for compliments." When I first posted my salute I thought it was a terrible photo of me, but I honestly didn't expect anyone to reply, so how could it have been fishing for compliments?

I didn't say that EVERYONE fishes for compliments, I said it could be interpreted that way.

would give karma if i could... people should know they arent ugly, no one thinks that when they look at the pics, and then that reminds people who ARE fishing for comliments that its not needed. thanks that was a good reminder

hi,
i dont actually agree with this!
maybe people just point out there faults in the picture because they are insecure about the way they look, or they dont like the way they look in the picture so they point it out so they dont feel like you are saying it behind there back because they have already said it!
love candy x x

Excellent post!! How can anyone say they're ugly? WHAT IS UGLY? If you look hard enough at anyone (yes, anyone!!) you can always find something about them that is beautiful. Ugly/beautiful whatever, it's all very SUBJECTIVE! An Ugly person is someone without any humanity. That's ugly. And I don't think i've ever met a person who has lost ALL their humanity. If you look at all these beautiful faces on DDN, you can see smiles, bright eyes, thoughts, hopes, dreams, opinions, beauty! And humanity shining through. Anything with a soul (take that word however you like. It's not meant to be necessarily religious) is beautiful. Ugly is an ugly word. Maybe we should stop using words like that about living creatures. I have not seen ONE SINGLE ugly person on this board and I've seen all the pictures here, people! Nothing ugly yet!

Know what? Some days, I look in the mirror and think "wow, you're so UGLY!" But my fiance doesn't see that. My parents and friends don't see that. My sister doesn't see that. My cats don't see that. In fact, I often see my cats staring at me with adoration in their eyes.

Ugly?

Come on!!

It's just because you see yourself every day. You have plenty of time alone with your face and body to study, obsess, and pick out any minor flaw. Then you believe those flaws represent who you are. Who else actually sees those tiny flaws? Those "perfect" looking people have just as many flaws as anyone else but we don't see them closeup every day. We're all unique. That's what makes humanity so great! No two people are identical in every way (even twins have different personalities) Your individuality shouldn't make you feel ugly. Since when did being an individual somehow equate to not being worthy of a standard that doesn't have any hard or fast rules??

I'm not getting this out right. It's not coming out like I'd like to say it but just believe me. You are beautiful because you are you. You're the most beautiful, perfect YOU in the world. No one else can be you like you, no matter how hard they try. You are the ONLY perfect you. Isn't that better than being a generic, fleeting standard of what some tell us is "perfect"? Imagine the world if we all fit into the standard of perfect as some designer sees it? What a cold, boring world if we all looked alike!

I didn't say that I was ugly in my salute, I kind fo did further down though, but that's not the point, that was only coz of the conversation that was going on...

I have better things to do than say I look ugly! I'm sure there's hundreds of nasty people willing to put you down.. so why do it yourself? Plus, if you say you're ugly, then automatically everyone's going to say your not!
Salutes aren't about being pretty, They're about proving to Dance.net who you are.
And the whole point is so you can post photos of yourself... So we can see you looking your best :)
its true
