I hadn’t heard of them but that is so horrible.

ugh, I have seen people post something like that on facebook where a girl asks for “likes” if you think I’m pretty or whatever and of course people leave comments as well.

I would never and  pray such a thing never exists if I were to have a daughter some day down the road !

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  Ditto. 

I would be devastated if a young girl I was close to did this. I don’t think there is anyway you could ever talk them out of believing the things those people said.

I haven’t seen or heard of those but there are pictures that teenagers post on facebook comparing one girl to another and asking who is prettier…it’s pretty disgusting and these parents need to talk to their kids about it because it’s ridiculous…

I think more often than not people make cruel comments because it’s so ridiculous that the person is asking in the first place, that they almost feel like they’re making a point with their sarcasm.

I heard of them a while ago on Dr Phil or something like that. It’s totally heartbreaking. I’ve never watched one or looked for one because I think the comments would just make me so livid. I feel so sad that today’s youth need so much validation from other people to make themselves feel worthwhile or beautiful, and that beauty is determined solely by their appearance rather than by who they truly are. Teenage years are hard enough, why do we feel the need to make it that much harder?

I haven’t heard of these videos but I think the parents need to be a little more on the ball when it comes to things like this.

I have never seen a video like this and I hope to God I don’t.  That’s absolutely heartbreaking that a girl feels the need to ask a bunch of strangers via internet if they’re pretty enough or not.  Sigh.  I sure hope none of them take this too seriously and do anything to harm themselves.  I will be flagging any videos/comments I come across.

@UpstateCait:  Naturally, but I mean to the point that they would do some drastically and harmful to change or whatever the case may be.

Does anyone remember the Hot or Not craze from the early 2000s? It reminds me of a much crueler version of that.
