Being Ugly

How do you think your opinion of unattractiveness was formed as a youth? I think it's interesting how children begin to form opinions on what is viewed as ugly vs. pretty. Do you think it's possible to change the way people view ugliness?

Do you think it's possible to raise a child that is unbiased in today's society, and if so, how would you proceed in doing that?

My idea of attractiveness was based on what my peers thought. Unfortunately for me being tall, dark and skinny worked against me, as I was called tar baby, choco bliss, too black and a host of other names. I do believe it is possible to raise children that appreciate a broader range of beauty and I intend to do it by appreciating and celebrating beauty in all its forms! I hope to teach them to be able to see beauty everywhere and not just whats 'HOT' right now!
