    There's no good context for this project, it's just getting superficial thrills off of making fun of people who are different. This is hate, mocking and bullying made into crude entertainment. The people who are responsible for this project, claim that they won't allow bullying of any kind. However, the fallacy of claiming that, is that when the pics show up on other sites and Facebook accounts that they have no control of, they are not being monitored by anyone, and the filth, hate, mocking and bullying just pour out. I found the sureddit site because my daughter and her friends were doing these pics on their Facebook accounts. There was no context to it. There were no links to their so called "uplifting" message. The comments were disgusting. So I confronted her with it and she sent me to the site. From there, I checked the other links. I saw comments like "most of the pics here are of women making themselves fat, that must mean that fat=ugly". I saw some really harsh responses. Have the people behind this project even taken the time to READ some of the responses at all? Again, they have no idea how they are influencing people and what the end results are. They have no control about how this is ultimately used. I saw a group of "normal" high school girls using this as a bullying tool. Clearly they are not "astute" enough to get the liberating message the project "leaders" claim they are trying to send. Quite the opposite. So, thanks again, for making my job harder, as I try to instill the concepts of ethical behavior and tolerance into my child. And, I am deeply disturbed by the media picking this up as if it's just good clean fun. YOU are making it ALLOWABLE to mock and bully the obese, stroke victims, accident victims, women with receding chins. The women posting their pictures are just providing examples of their perceptions of ugly - for "entertainment"? Thanks so much. As if we don't already see enough of that already in the media and everday life. Your editors may find it liberating and hilarious. to call this "brave" is entirely beyond belief. They are not challenging perceptions of beauty, they are creating definitions of ugly. Those of us who are not "traditionally" pretty - as YOU define it - are just seeing hate, ignorance, superficiality, mocking and bullying. I work on a college campus and I showed these pics to some of my co-workers. Do you know what the response was? Some of them actually cried. I'm sorry, but I don't see that as entertainment and liberating. What you and the "project" are doing is hurtful, plain and simple. There is no excuse for this. I am so ashamed for all the people involved, that they cannot comprehend the damage and hurt that they are doing.

    @ Beerwolf - not a chance ! That would require Yahoo7 to employ someone who could actually THINK for themselves! Perhaps even be able to do their own independent research on REAL news items instead of just copying whatever good old 'auntie',(ABC News) the tax payer funded, public mouth piece and 'spin doctors' of the FERAL labor party, sends them as 'NEWS'. BUT, don't hold your breath waiting !
