So I have a really really really really really really really low self asteam (sorry if my spelling if off)….. And this one person that I was in a fight argument at school today yelled at me and said"well at least I have a good face to look at unlike you!! ", and then I felt like I wanted to cry because I think that way too much as it is already…. So the point of this is to ask you guys to look at my profile picture and tell me (for my age… 15) on a scale 1-10 how attractive I am… I just need a little leverage so I won't feel so bad about myself always wondering if im ugly…. Thanks soooo much if you can help me out!!! Just click on my profile picture…. Thanks!

I'm not giving you a numeric score, you're 15.
You're not ugly, at all.
"ugly" is a standard put down people use on women (that or slut, basically). It's kind of remarkable the extent to which insults show deep values in society. Women are valued for being pretty, young, and sexually chaste. So the stock insults for women are about her looks, age, or sexual promiscuity thrown in. (Along with bitch, if they are 'too emotional'). Men by contrast are valued for power, physical courage and what they can accomplish, so the insults thrown at men are about being a wuss, loser, suck or a 'pathetic virgin'.
Nobody should take any of those insults seriously, since they are just the most obvious things thrown out to hurt.3
