The subreddit AskWomen describes itself as a place dedicated to asking women questions about their thoughts, lives, and experiences; providing a place where all women can comfortably and candidly share their responses in a non-judgmental space.
One woman decided to open up about her jealousy about women who are born beautiful; she believes that she herself is not ‘pretty’ and never will be. Her feelings about her own appearance affect her daily life, blaming her ‘ugliness’ on everything negative that happens to her, even though she knows she is a good person. Curious to know how other ‘unattractive’ women deal with not being pretty, she went on to ask: “How do you deal with not being attractive to most men? How do you accept how you look and learn to love yourself regardless?”
The post attracted tons of comments offering all kinds of insightful advice and experiences. One really stood out however, and it was written from a man’s perspective. Mansplaining you say? Some might think so, but many others appreciated the beautiful and simple message behind it.
