What is the “Am I Ugly” thread about?

Started in 2010, the thread asks people to post their pictures so other Redditors can let you know what they think of your looks.

People who post on the forum are free to reveal as much or as little about themselves. The main idea is to share an authentic picture of yourself and let others express their opinions.

There is no doubt that it takes a lot of courage to let others judge you. However, the thread proves that there is still good in this world.

Many people who really want to hear other people’s opinions post their pictures in the thread. There was a recent post titled “32, I feel ugly after kids.” Am I? “Including a confirmation that I just woke up before the shower,” was shared on the platform. Within minutes, people were quick to voice their thoughts and almost all were positive.

Comments like “You look very pretty and no older than your age to me.” No need to worry you still got it!”, “Still looking good, post kids and life”, “Your in none Way Ugly” and more were posted. A similar pattern can be seen in the rest of the posts on this thread.

While there are some that could be categorized as negative, there were many more positives that were enough to push the negativity aside.
