So recently a new trend has been appearing all over social media most notably Vine & Instagram and it's where users, typically in their pre-teens and teens, make themselves appear ugly with features such as bad acne, unibrows, crooked teeth, and etc. Afterwards the participants would blacken out the camera and show their true form without the makeup revealing their natural beauty, or so they say. Now the message of this challenge is to "Not judge a book by its cover" because under all that makeup lies a beautiful interior but what is this challenge really saying about society as a whole?
The problem with this challenge is it's pointing out what our society deems ugly and what our society deems pretty because every single one of the challenges you see a unibrow, bad acne, bad teeth, bad skin, etc which is all things that our society has labeled as "hideous" or "disgusting". In actuality this challenge is just a way for people that are clearly beautiful and meet up to societies standards of good hair, good teeth, flawless skin, and etc to make fun of what society deems ugly and then reveal to us what they have that society deems beautiful.
Let's be real, these traits are deemed unattractive by a large amount of people that's just reality, but the point is that it's completely immoral to point out to these people who have the misfortune of having bad acne or bad skin that these physical characteristics are what society finds ugly. The people participating in these challenges are the same people that are wondering why suicide rates among the young are so high, because they're constantly fucking reminded by their own peers that what they've been born as is unappealing.
So in conclusion this challenge is nothing more then a way for people that clearly know their beautiful and are told daily by our society that they're beautiful to make fun of people that are constantly rediculed and put down because of how they were born, it's disgusting and I hope this trend ends soon.
