A Face Like That Cannot Be Human?

#1  Postby aufbahrung » May 17, 2020 5:47 am

Ever wonder if someone is really human based on their looks? I mean their face fell into uncanny valley and despite their best efforts is still there? A discussion about ugliness and that sort of people ain't too beautiful thing.

My mother said I was a beautiful baby, until the faeries exchanged me

When I was born the midwife took one look at me, then slapped my mother.

Then there are cases like cher and madonna, who seem to have been plastinated while still living.

No. If the individual belongs to the species Homo Sapiens then they're really human. HTH

She revelled in adventure and imagination.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

I don't mean classic ugliness, perhaps like a birth deformity or aftermath of disaster. Really like there's more going on not less than a ordinary human face would allow. Uncanny valley of the biological sort. Half past human...

We'd probably consider neanderthals human if they were still around. I would.
