The community greets its members with a cheeky statement: “We’ll only judge if you try to maintain your dignity.” Since its inception in 2012, it has served as a safe haven for women to share their most unflattering moments. And honestly, witnessing these beautiful and comedic ladies transform into goofy characters within seconds is incredibly refreshing.

According to ‘Know Your Meme,’ this subreddit emerged shortly after a similar trend surfaced on Tumblr through the ‘Pretty Girls Making Ugly Faces’ blog in 2011. The concept of juxtaposing attractive photos with less-than-camera-ready moments gained rapid popularity, inspiring thousands to join in. Double chins, exaggerated teeth, and comically squished facial expressions flooded feeds, challenging the unrealistic beauty standards and affirming that nobody is flawless all the time. And lest we forget, men participate in this trend too, with their own ‘Handsome Guys Ugly Faces’ subreddit dedicated to the cause.

Sadly, the consequences of constant comparison can be severe, contributing to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and other psychological strains. A survey involving 227 female university students revealed that while browsing social media, many tend to negatively evaluate their own appearance in comparison to peers or celebrities.

Jasmine Fardouly, a researcher at Macquarie University, highlighted this phenomenon to the BBC, stating, “People compare their appearance to others on Instagram or whichever platform they’re on and often perceive themselves as inferior.”This inclination arises because people frequently highlight only the positive aspects of their lives on social media, leading to a distorted perception. Fardouly emphasized, “If you know someone well, you’ll understand they’re presenting a curated image, but with acquaintances, that context is missing.”

The founder of ‘Pretty Girls Ugly Faces,’ Redditor Sinkingfast, shared with Bored Panda in a previous interview the enduring appeal of the community. “We observe a significant number of users coming back after receiving encouraging feedback on their posts.

They explained how humans often judge based on appearances and superficial traits, which can lead to inaccurate assumptions. “My viewpoint aligns somewhat with Dunbar’s number, suggesting we can only intimately know a limited number of people. In a massive city or online, we can’t possibly know everyone.”

“As an example,” the moderator continued, “I might wear a band t-shirt to signal my fandom, which could attract positive or negative judgments. However, I don’t choose my facial features, yet people often make snap judgments based on those.”

Redditor Sinkingfast noted that society often assumes people wish to be seen exactly as they present themselves, even regarding traits beyond their control. In the media, it’s common to observe actors such as Steve Buscemi, who’s recognized for his distinctive appearance, being consistently cast in roles primarily based on their looks rather than their acting abilities or character depth.

They pondered, “What if he wasn’t an actor but just a regular person with distinct features? Would people judge him harshly for not fitting traditional beauty standards?”

Despite these societal tendencies, Redditor Sinkingfast remains hopeful. “Even the most conscientious individuals can sometimes make biased judgments. Hopefully, over time, we’ll become more compassionate and less quick to judge others based on factors beyond their control.”
