What does ugly mean?
This is a question that many of my friends often ask me; what do I think when I hear the word ugly mentioned. It's a very good question and through the eyes of a blind person so to speak, the word ugly takes on quite another connotation.
In my view, here are my thoughts. When I hear the word ugly, I think of persons who are unpleasant, vindictive, unkind, dishonest, self-centered, and thoughtless. To me, ugly means when someone has done something to hurt another or when they have done something to the detriment of another. Ugly to me is expressed through actions and words; actions that are not nice and words that are hurtful.
I do not think of persons as being physically ugly. I do not think of an ugly animal, an ugly house, an ugly car, etc. My world of ugly resides in the words and actions carried out by others. Ah, through the eyes of a blind person; someone who does not see the physical side of things.
