Teen Girls Post Videos Asking 'Am I Ugly Or Pretty'

Sun, February 26, 2012 10:19am EDT by 5 Comments

Living in the spotlight, stars such as Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato can’t avoid the nasty comments haters post online. But now normal teens are putting themselves in the line of fire and asking total strangers if they’re pretty or not!

There’s a disturbing new trend among teen and tween girls — these young women are posting videos to YouTube and asking viewers to judge whether they’re pretty or ugly, Today reports. “I just wanted to make a random video seeing if I were ugly or not because a lot of people call me ugly,” one girl confesses in her video “Am I Pretty Or Ugly?”

Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez YouTube videos are peppered with awful feedback in the comments section from haters. They can’t hide from negative comments, but these “normal” teen girls posting videos can avoid the humiliation. Instead, they broadcast their fragile self-image to the world and wait for “honest” reactions from complete strangers!

Most of the comments fall into two categories: nasty and nice. Many of the nasty comments are definitely not suitable for the 13 and 14-year-old girls posting the videos.

“Please put a paper bag over your hat, you disgusting pig,” one viewer comments, and this is an example of a less offensive comment.

The other commentators plead for the girls to learn to love themselves and stop seeking outside criticism about their still changing bodies, much like Miley did for Demi Lovato.

““@ddlovato AMEN! I will destroy any one that ever calls you the F word. You have the SEXIIIESTTTT curvyyyy body! I LOVE IT! #werkthosecurves,” Miley tweeted to Demi on Nov. 11 after critics called Demi fat.

Teen girls don’t seek out vicious attacks in school and Facebook. They come easily enough. Then why are these girls seeking out feedback?

If they thought they were ugly, they wouldn’t post this. Conceited jerks!

Those girls should not worry about what the hell others think and realize that they only need to focus on their schooling and getting a job and taking on projects that they want to take on. Also lose the people pleasing tude because you cannot please everyone all the time and they can just shut up and mind their business if others are insuloting them or just insult them back. It is high time we learn to stand up for ourselves and tell these f….g shrinks where to go. That is what I did in my time and if they tattled then retaliate against them. Don’t waste your time posting such things on the web and don’t waste a criminal justice student’s time with such silliness.

They really should stop doing this. They only will get their fragile self-image broken by trolls who has not got anything else to do than bulliying them.
