You can help me out girl, since you're dad used to do this too.
So my parents are very honest people. And they don't really know when to shut their mouths. They're always telling me I look horrible and my hair looks like crap, I'm too skinny and overall I just look like a homeless bum. I don't have pretty clothes and my hair texture is 4C. ( I have Afro hair texture and my parents say it's ugly and there's something wrong with me I feel like they'd like me more if I had lighter skin and straight hair because that's beautiful to everyone. And apparently Because my parents tell me I look really horrible and ugly and I think there's something wrong with me because I don't meet their standards of a beautiful girl.
( funny how they say I look bad but I get my looks from them) but do I look as bad as they say and how do I get them to stop? and yes I'm the girl in the profile. Is there something wrong with me?
My parents act like I'm a freak/ social reject and they say there's something wrong with me and treat me like I'm stupid.
What I'm I suppose to do? I know I don't look ideal but is it necessary for them to tell me all this? Did I do something wrong?
I must be some type of freak or something to be treated like this...

My parents are very unhappy people, maybe that's why? :/

I don't think you look hideous, you look like you have boyfriend to be honest. From reading your post, you make it seem like they're basically calling you Quasi Modo or something. On the bright side, you should be happy they're honest though, not many parents have guts to tell what they think to their child. It's just that yours, specifically, are shit with their words, unfortunately.
My advice to is to keep your head up, like they know what they're talking about. They don't know who likes you for what you look like. They don't know the boy that is crushing on you. They don't know that you are looking like that to impress a guy.
The point is OP, although, they are your parents that doesn't mean they should talk shite about you as you are still going through puberty and trust me when I say this EVERYBODY LOOKED UGLY AS HELL when they were younger, your parents, my parents, my friends, my friends parents, me, my girlfriend although I didn't tell her yet lol. So you see, you need to keep your head up, ignore the haters cause haters aren't shit. Your parents WISH they were still as young as you. They MISSED their chance on what to do, so now they are trying to control you. Don't let them attack you, stand up for yourself, and if need be look in the mirror as say "I'm beautiful" everyday (seems cliche, but it builds confidence). Good luck to you1
