And before I get hate for this let me just say I recognize she's fighting a disease and I respect her for it. I could never imagine what she's going through and she's a really strong young girl, but that doesn't mean you should tell her something you don't honestly believe. Not to mention she's really only, like, five I think. At five years old you don't really need people telling you you're pretty, you haven't entered that stage where you care about looks.
I'm sorry if this offends, I didn't mean it in any offending way.

I really don't like this whole "everyone's beautiful" thing. Yeah, it sucks that some people have to be left out, but just pretending that they're something they're not won't change that.

People should also consider that if everything was beautiful, then the word would lose all significance. So if beautiful people are beautiful and not so beautiful people are also beautiful, and we can't leave out the average people because they might feel bad, so they're beautiful too... there would be no point in using it.

That's something that's always really bothered me. If we only compliment people who deserve it, then the compliment is sincere and actually means something. But then the people who aren't in that category get offended, and we're forced to either compliment everyone or no one, which is essentially the same thing.

Physically, I do believe beauty is universal. But don't tell people that they're perfect on the inside. That's never true and there's always room for improvement.

Everyone is beautiful to someone, but in terms of the way society defines people as physically beautiful Adalia is extremely ugly. And her mom is disgusting in the way that she exploits her daughter.

Are you serious? I truly do believe she is fucking adorable.

Hey to each is own if you actually have a physical attraction towards her good for you, but honestly I'm sure a lot of people don't.

what bothers me is that we put so much emphasis on the need for beauty. why can't she be brave, intelligent, and kind and that's enough? the fact that there even is a debate about her looks means that it's still something that defines a person.

so what if she's not physically beautiful? so what if you're not physically beautiful? what about all of those other great traits you have?

that's why i hate the phrase "everyone is beautiful." fine, everyone is beautiful to someone, i absolutely agree, but making it such a statement for everyone to follow is only encouraging the idea that beauty matters so much.

this isn't a rant towards this post or anyone who commented btw, just a general observation sparked by the post

That's fair
And I'm not saying people who tell her she's ugly, alien, gross, etc are right. That's very wrong. It's beyond rude to say those things to anyone and they should keep their mouth shut.

She makes Youtube videos. And you don't need to personally know someone to understand their courage. I think it's worse and superficial that people hoard the word "beautiful" and find it wrong that a person can use it for this poor little girl that has obviously suffered a lot in her life. You should see some of the comments and responses that she gets. People certainly don't have a problem calling her, or other people with progeria, mean names and making them into jokes. Combating that negativity with some kind words isn't very hard.

@CherryBlossom Inner beauty?

No, yeah I wasn't offend because I do get your point and I know a personality can make someone beautiful. Honestly I just wish everyone would leave her alone, I mean maybe she likes the attention, but if I were her I wouldn't want the pity compliments and I certainly wouldn't want the rude remarks. She did nothing to deserve them. She has a disorder and it's rude to make jokes about it because people need to think how they would feel if they were in her place
I mean you know all that I just felt like typing it out somewhere and yeah

Sorry if that sounded rude. I agree with what you mean, that compliments out of pity are often insincere and fake. I just think that they're better than the rude comments and they might help "cancel" them out. Like, it's worse that there's a point in a lack of physical attraction that people will go out of their way to put someone down:/

Beauty is not only about the physical sense of the word. And I'm pretty sure most people know that this little girl can't be a runway model. But...who cares? If it will make a sick little girl feel better and bring some happiness to her life, why would you or anyone else have a problem with that?

I'd like to know how you'd feel if your face was on an amirite post explaining how ugly you are.

You're obviously missing the point if you think the sole purpose of this post is laughing at how ugly she is.
