Freckles are nice in moderation, but redheads with their blotchy freckles are a major turnoff.

My mother is a beautiful redhead with tons of freckles. As I equate my mom with all things that are good and right in this world, I can not dislike freckles.

"The Goths" made me giggle.. at 33, you get over a lables and just 'be' .

finding myself wanting that alabaster skin. yep. been there. still am. I am learning to embrace my abundance of freckles as I get older. Yes, I am a natural ginger, yes I dye my hair. Yes, I have curly hair, and yes I straighten it. We are taught from an early age to never like ourselves. We need to be like this girl, or that girl.. People blame the media for suicides of young, impressionable kids. To an extent maybe, I think they don't help at all, but it all comes back to parenting. Setting a good example for your daughter, teaching her to love herself and who she is on the outside and in. The culture of Vogue, and Elle may seep in, but if she was taught from an early age (by exampe too, not just words) that we are all beautifully different, it might not seep into the darkest of places.

Brunette with a generous helping of freckles. I've never been sensitive about them, never been teased about them and never felt the urge to hide them (though I did read an article about "how to hide freckles!" in one of those trashy women's magazines. That astonished and irritated me). Never had any particular yen for pale clear skin, either. I donno, it just never seemed to me to be anything to be sensitive about. To me it'd be like being sensitive about having brown eyes instead of green or something. So what?

I'm not sure if I find freckles attractive on a man or not. I just realized the only man I can envision who has freckles is Prince Harry.
I think I'd find them attractive on the right person, anyway.

I'm heavily freckled, less so on my face. Auburn hair. Blue eyes. I like my freckles.

However I've also had similar experiences, they just never really bothered me too much. I never tried to cover up my freckles. I have one on my lip that I'd rather not have (darker spot when I apply lip gloss) but that's not really a big whoop.

I have had people be extraordinarily nasty about it though, including one college professor I literally got into an argument with. His daughter had freckles, he talked in class about the genetic lottery of freckles...and how AWFUL and UGLY freckles were...as I was in the front row. My arms are fully covered with freckles, and I pushed back my sleeves (was winter, I don't hide them :P) to make sure he saw mine. Then confronted him after class about it. It culminated with him demanding (yelling in my face no less) what he should tell his 8 year old daughter when she sobs about how ugly she is.

I told him he should tell her she's got a shiatty father. (I really did). Among other things. Only F that remains on my academic record (I attempted to withdraw but apparently was too late, he was the only one who taught that specific course, blah blah blah. Never has hurt me either, since the rest are all pretty much As, and then once you enter the real world no one gives a shiat what your scores were. Ever.)

That was by far the nastiest. But there were many such incidences. I can easily recall many, most when I was a child. Fortunately I was a mouthy, know-it-all, Irish brat, so truly it didn't bother me. I liked 'em. My dad is also covered in them, as is one of my brothers.

I also didn't mind the comparisons to Pippi Longstocking (she was cool) but the Annie stuff...well that I did truly hate. ;)

Anyhoo long post shortened, while it didn't bother me as it did the woman in the article, you've really no idea how farking rude and shiatty people can be about it. And how often ADULTS thought it was okay to either make nasty comments, or (and this actually would piss me off) attempt to REASSURE me about my freckles. /rolls eyes

It does seem to trigger 'ew diseased!' reactions in some. I did have a friend confess to me she thought they were creepy the way my arms were covered in spots. They are on my face too, just very faint because I sunblock (for cancer prevention since I'm very very pale, not freckle prevention).

Oh and I also have no soul, but you guys knew that about us right? ;)

Southern women use to do whatever they could to rid themselves of freckles. Well, high society women anyways. Freckles were a sign of "low class" and "those dreadful women who had to *gasp* work outside". Milk baths, lemon juice were among some of the most popular treatments I think.

Yup good ol southern classism and racism.

Classism - freckles can appear or darken with sun exposure. It used to be that a proper women was one who never stooped to doing farm work or other manual labor and showing signs of sun exposure marked your low class status.

Racism - light skinned blacks often have freckles which some explain as their black showing through. If you are white looking but have freckles then maybe you are really a half breed.

Freckles become more prominent with sun exposure. Only people who have to work in manual labor are out in the sun in the south. ergo, if you're a women who has freckles that means you are poor and have to work for a living.

It's a sign of low-class. Or so the story goes.

you can teach your child to love themselves, and that they can express themselves with altering their physical appearance if they want to. Not out of disgust of what they look like, but because it's fun and they want to. If they love themselves, have confidence, and want to play with their hair colour, or makeup, etc.. who cares. i liked the very pale skin look....not because i hated freckles and thought they were the devil.....I just admired the pasty girls with porceline skin, because I think it's beautiful. I also think girls with Freckles are beautiful... Same reason i like men in kilts. it's a preference.. I like men in pants too, but men in kilts are just so damn sexy..

sometimes i like to have straight black hair because i can.

rka: kwame: Aello: I know that supposedly it's been "bad" to have freckles when you're a Southern woman. But I've always loved my freckles. I don't think there has ever been a time where someone made a mean spirited or uncomplimentary remark about them either. I always get "Freckles are cute" remarks :)

What does being a Southern woman have to do with freckles being bad?

Freckles become more prominent with sun exposure. Only people who have to work in manual labor are out in the sun in the south. ergo, if you're a women who has freckles that means you are poor and have to work for a living.

It's a sign of low-class. Or so the story goes.


So is having a tan.

Eh, I don't like freckles or 'beauty marks' on faces but I'm not going to yell it to the streets or point at someone to yell at how 'ugly' they are. A few freckles are 'fine' but the whole faceful or arms covered in them? I don't really find that attractive but you know what, attractiveness is objective so whatever. And people don't exist for others viewing pleasure so another strike against this. Besides bringing up to someone that they have a lot of freckles is like pointing out someone is tall. It's not news and a very inane statement.

HairBolus: Aello: I know that supposedly it's been "bad" to have freckles when you're a Southern woman.

Yup good ol southern classism and racism.

Classism - freckles can appear or darken with sun exposure. It used to be that a proper women was one who never stooped to doing farm work or other manual labor and showing signs of sun exposure marked your low class status.

Racism - light skinned blacks often have freckles which some explain as their black showing through. If you are white looking but have freckles then maybe you are really a half breed.

kwame: So do as I say not as I do? Then why the comment about setting examples?


I was horribly abused as a child. I also have freckles and it was one of the things my tormenters used to make me feel extremely ugly and worthless. If you have never been in that place, maybe you can't understand how someone could want to make the world a better place for their child, rather than creating a situation where the child feels just as worthless. Setting a good example doesn't mean you have to actually feel inside the way you want your child to feel about themselves. It isn't that easy.

My child, a 15 year old girl, has high self-esteem. Why? Because I never fail to tell her how beautiful she is as a person. She used to have a friend who was demeaning and I helped her see that this person was destroying her slowly. She walked away from that abusive relationship when she realized the truth. She has confidence, is secure in who she is and honestly likes herself. She told me a few weeks ago that she is the person she hoped she would become from an early age.

Me? I still self-loathe, it is something I will probably never fully get rid of. But I don't do it in front of her, I don't tell her how ugly I feel, I only tell her how wonderful she is and how she can work hard and acheive whatever she wants to.

So yes.. do as I say, not as I do can be highly recommended in some cases.

I've always had chestnut brown hair and freckles -- more when I was young than now, but I still have them.  Not sure if they show up in my profile pic here ... maybe a little?

It was clear to me early on that some people (my mom, that cute boy I met at a garden party when I was 5 or 6 years old, my husband) love freckles and find them attractive... and some people, for whatever reason, find them odd or unattractive.  I've always liked them, personally, and thought they were cute.  Some of us wear them better than others (e.g. I don't find them flattering on actress Maya Rudolph).

By the time I was in high school, I decided I had more important things to worry about than my freckles and whether or not this person or that person found them appealing...perhaps because something in me understood that anyone who is going to decide whether or not to like me based on a feature of my skin was probably not someone whose good opinion was much worth having.

It is probably for this reason that I have little patience for the type of navel-gazing the author engages in here.  There are people out there with REAL problems -- cerebral palsy, cancer, etc. -- and they're transcending those challenges and making a positive contribution against much greater odds.  And I'm going to whine about my farking freckles?  Sistah please...

deamonbutterfly: kwame: So do as I say not as I do? Then why the comment about setting examples?

you can teach your child to love themselves, and that they can express themselves with altering their physical appearance if they want to. Not out of disgust of what they look like, but because it's fun and they want to. If they love themselves, have confidence, and want to play with their hair colour, or makeup, etc.. who cares. i liked the very pale skin look....not because i hated freckles and thought they were the devil.....I just admired the pasty girls with porceline skin, because I think it's beautiful. I also think girls with Freckles are beautiful... Same reason i like men in kilts. it's a preference.. I like men in pants too, but men in kilts are just so damn sexy..

sometimes i like to have straight black hair because i can.

Ye gods and little fishes yes to freckles. That dusting across the nose and cheekbones just makes me quiver for some reason. Add in virulently red hair (fake or real), light skin, and I'm a puddle.

Or a light skinned black chick with the same freckles makes me just as puddles. Yowza.

She got a name? Not that I care, but it makes it easier to GIS her.


You really need to learn how to do a reverse Google image search. FARK doesn't handle a link to one so I can't directly link one. For this case search for the image url
http://www.koanicsoul.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/freckles.jp g
(without extra spaces if FARK added them),

Google will then say: "For matching images, try search by image".
Click on that and the Goog will show you the pages linking the image.

In that listing you will find (poss NSFW) from 2008 Freckle Chested Latina Spilling Out of Her Top which contains 3 pictures of her.

Beanlet: kwame: So do as I say not as I do? Then why the comment about setting examples?

I was horribly abused as a child. I also have freckles and it was one of the things my tormenters used to make me feel extremely ugly and worthless. If you have never been in that place, maybe you can't understand how someone could want to make the world a better place for their child, rather than creating a situation where the child feels just as worthless. Setting a good example doesn't mean you have to actually feel inside the way you want your child to feel about themselves. It isn't that easy.

My child, a 15 year old girl, has high self-esteem. Why? Because I never fail to tell her how beautiful she is as a person. She used to have a friend who was demeaning and I helped her see that this person was destroying her slowly. She walked away from that abusive relationship when she realized the truth. She has confidence, is secure in who she is and honestly likes herself. She told me a few weeks ago that she is the person she hoped she would become from an early age.

Me? I still self-loathe, it is something I will probably never fully get rid of. But I don't do it in front of her, I don't tell her how ugly I feel, I only tell her how wonderful she is and how she can work hard and acheive whatever she wants to.

So yes.. do as I say, not as I do can be highly recommended in some cases.

as a red head I say this, freckles in moderation are just fine. When there are too many though, that is when things go wrong. My best friend, also a red head, had a lot of freckles and was constantly given shiat about it and it really messed with his head. I got off lucky, being a red head with light freckles... I only got shiat about my red hair. Kids can be mean little bastards.
 
2012-12-28 04:01:44 PM

Aello: Southern women use to do whatever they could to rid themselves of freckles. Well, high society women anyways. Freckles were a sign of "low class" and "those dreadful women who had to *gasp* work outside". Milk baths, lemon juice were among some of the most popular treatments I think.

RedT: I'm a ginger with a few freckles. Never had anyone ever make any comments about my freckles even though I was a nerd in school and did get bullied some {shrugs}. Only one person ever even made of my hair color (Danny Partridge jokes) and did it in a very harassing manner, but he was a dick and even I could see that in Jr High.

Of course being an introverted nerd, I didn't even hear the bullying most of the time so who the heck knows what anyone was saying, if anything.

CSB: In college I met a gal who graduated a year before me at the same high school and we became friends. She once told me she felt so sorry for me when all the guys would make fun me when I walked through the cafeteria (apparently commenting on my breasts). Funny thing? I never, not once, ever, heard anyone make any comments when walking through the high school cafeteria although I have no reason to doubt her.
Being an introverted nerd, why would I assume anyone was talking about me?

I'm so old that any freckles I ever had have all turned into liver spots. But, I do remember my grandmother and her sister always wore long sleeve shirts and pants or long skirts, thin gloves and large hats to work in the gardens. Both had the most luminous and smooth skin when they died. My great aunt was also a curly redhead, at least what little could be seen when a tendril escaped her bun. I got the curls, but not the rest of the beauty.

The author of the article is apparently one of those preppy girls who hung around with a crowd that picked on people with freckles. Most normal folks don't have a problem with freckles, and as evidenced by this thread, many are attracted to them. However, the image-conscious twits in the preppy cliques would certainly be the ones to drive this poor, somewhat vapid girl to attempt to cover up her freckles.

It wasn't about her freckles or her looks, though. It was about the company she kept.

If she were hanging around with a different crowd, she probably wouldn't have been made to feel like freckles were something to hide.

Salon's articles frequently seem to come from people who appear to be a touch on the shallow side. Honestly-- The whole article is one big "boo hoo I lacked the confidence to be myself until I got older" whine, when I betcha anything this girl was right there with her biatchy friends picking on the fat girls, the plain-looking girls, the nerdy girls, and the others who didn't "fit in" with the beauty standard they imposed on each other.

Maybe I have her all wrong... But the way the article reads, it sure sounds like she was living under the influence of some bullshiat beauty standards and went to extremes because of it.

I love most redheads too. Hard to say what eye color is my favorite with redheads... They're all pretty hot, but oddly enough I think it's flat brown that weakens my knees the most.

And I love a high red color on the cheeks. The kind many Irish girls and some Jewish girls often get?

It was believed that the sun brought out freckles, and in Society, only laborers got tanned. The whiter your skin the better... on several levels. Same thing held in Europe for a while. That may explain the French trend of white painted faces, but I'm not sure there.

fyrewede: I've always had chestnut brown hair and freckles -- more when I was young than now, but I still have them.  Not sure if they show up in my profile pic here ... maybe a little?

It was clear to me early on that some people (my mom, that cute boy I met at a garden party when I was 5 or 6 years old, my husband) love freckles and find them attractive... and some people, for whatever reason, find them odd or unattractive.  I've always liked them, personally, and thought they were cute.  Some of us wear them better than others (e.g. I don't find them flattering on actress Maya Rudolph).

By the time I was in high school, I decided I had more important things to worry about than my freckles and whether or not this person or that person found them appealing...perhaps because something in me understood that anyone who is going to decide whether or not to like me based on a feature of my skin was probably not someone whose good opinion was much worth having.

It is probably for this reason that I have little patience for the type of navel-gazing the author engages in here.  There are people out there with REAL problems -- cerebral palsy, cancer, etc. -- and they're transcending those challenges and making a positive contribution against much greater odds.  And I'm going to whine about my farking freckles?  Sistah please...


They do show up. And they are very nice. And you have a magnificent rack.

deamonbutterfly: We are taught from an early age to never like ourselves. We need to be like this girl, or that girl.. People blame the media for suicides of young, impressionable kids. To an extent maybe, I think they don't help at all, but it all comes back to parenting. Setting a good example for your daughter, teaching her to love herself and who she is on the outside and in. The culture of Vogue, and Elle may seep in, but if she was taught from an early age (by exampe too, not just words) that we are all beautifully different, it might not seep into the darkest of places.


I'm quite contrary (no i'm not!), society said have a body image problem, so I said no. I also *never* read those trashy girly magazines, because everytime I did I could feel the doubt seeping in. I'll have none of that, thank you. I'm a good enough person who looks as good as the amount of effort i'm willing to put in will get me, and that's just fine.

Mum also gave me the benefit of telling me about all her troubles with her freckles, and how hating them never helped and trying to get rid of them never worked, so I didn't bother. sure some kids picked on me, but everytime i got called freckle face i just agreed with them, because it was true. confused bullies look so funny.

Lucy Liu is American born. Asian Asians are more uptight about flawless skin and skin whiteness than old Southern grand dames even though some may be heavily naturally freckled. They consider freckles disgusting blemishes that need to be removed or covered up and if you search for Asian (or some subtype) freckles you will mostly find info on getting rid of them rather than people who have them.

e.g. Chinese herbal freckle removing cream--No side effect

www.tmcosmatic.com

The best place to find Asian freckles is among US born Asians, particularly half-Asians such as

Devon Aok

media-cache-ec4.pinterest.com

and Jassie James who in a recent twitpic does not have her freckles hidden under a layer of makeup.

Is it not obvious to you? Are you blind?

magicgoo: I have the stupid kind that are everywhere, but are all spaced apart. I think they're also known as stupid moles.


Moles and freckles are not the same thing. At all. Not even close. Freckles will not turn into cancer. Moles will. If you have a lot of moles make sure you go to a dermatologist and get a mole map. Makes the cancer easier to catch in the early stages.

Was not aware people who are half Asian were prone to freckles. Don't know a lot of half Asian people, but have never seen freckles on any of those I do know.Plus, myself and my brothers are half Asian, and none of us have freckles. A few annoying moles, but no freckles.

Yes, I have curly hair, and yes I straighten it. We are taught from an early age to never like ourselves. We need to be like this girl, or that girl..

or we can all just off ourselves. yah. seems more logical.

That whole comment kind of goes to sh*t with the understanding that you continue to dye and straighten your hair.

if black women can get away with the hypocrisy, so can she.

Troll someone else, sh*t-for-brains.


That is not a troll. Been to too many black sites where black women pull the 'it's just a style' card when it comes to talking about hair, weaves, extensions, wigs, dye, straightening, and blackness versus non-blackness.

Haven't you?

As I said, if black women can get away with the hypocrisy of 'I have great self esteem/I'm not trying to look like anyone else' while working awful hard to get rid of the tight brunette/black curls, well.. *shrug.jpg* daemonbutterfly can also embrace herself at the same time as dying and straightening herself.
