I'm just curious because my dad truly does seem to mind that I've never been "hot." I've been chubby my whole life (I've always been in a healthy weight range, but had belly fat) and had acne for many years, but I was still "cute" or "average looking." He's always told me to lose weight or do a better job washing my face or whatever (the only thing that truly helped my acne was birth control, which he wouldn't allow for me as a teenager). I just can't figure out why he would even care lol.
So would you care if your children weren't very good looking? Is it because of pride in your genes or something?

Its not about attractiveness is more about you are a representation of your parents. So they want you to look good and presentable at times. Parents don't wanna have the message of "well if that's how they let her wear those clothes, look, not clean herself, whatever they must be bad parents"
Your dad's a little insane I could of told you birth control would of helped and I'm no doc lol but as far as acne and him to tell you to wash your face thats an old school way of handling it. They didn't have thing aback then for bad acne. You wash your face and it clears up if you don't you dealt with it cuz it would go away later in life. Loosing weight too. Oh you just workout and it falls off. Nope thats not right either. 80% diet.1

No. I don't plan to have kids, but if I did, I wouldn't care. I had to grow up with my mother calling me ugly all the time. She used to get angry with me for being ugly and looking like my father. It made me feel like crap because I didn't choose to be ugly, and my own mother was making me feel bad about it. So I would never make my children feel bad for that.3
