... brutal honesty or sugar-coated answers on gag?
Most Helpful Guy
I think most people here want honesty, but gentle honesty. After all, if a question is asked, it's because an honest answer is wanted.3

In between, but usually its a matter of perception. Something neutral can be brutally honoust for one and sugar-coated for another. Telling simply "gain some weight" to an anorexic girl on GAG can be a brutal answer to her, while everybody else may find it a uncoloured straight answer.1
