6 yıl önce

Father, author of the book 'Ugly' and political advisor Robert Hoge explores why we all need to own our own faces. Sharing his own personal story, Robert examines, life, love, beauty, imperfection and pain in this powerful TEDxTalk.
Robert Hoge has worked as a journalist, a speechwriter, a science communicator for the CSIRO and a political advisor to the former Queensland Premier and Deputy Premier. While he never went far with his professional lawn bowls career, Robert did carry the Olympic torch in 2000. He is married and lives in Brisbane with an eleven-year-old daughter who thinks his Olympic torch would make a really great cricket bat.

My grandmother made it hugely clear to my mother, a beautiful young girl, she never wanted children in her second marriage. My mother existed only for her father, and so she was raised by her step sister. My husband was born when his mother was sixteen; she was hugely bipolar, and told him several time she wished he had never been born. I do not in any way want to detract from this gentleman’s story, rather, offer my experience of enormous hurt for loved ones who were supposed to be ‘normal looking’, whatever that means. I appreciated the dialogue, Robert. I hope you are continuing with this hugely important message.

What an amazingly valuable human being. We all have our own unique struggles in life. I think that these struggles define us 10X more than our successes.

Outstanding talk. As a photographer, I am always asked to retouch images to leave subjects looking "acceptable" to the public and to themselves. And if I don't do it, the subject refuses to "own" their face. Fantasy always seems to triumph over reality.

I remember that I used to hate my face but I started wearing makeup. My makeup however wasn’t there to hide my flaws. It was there for the art itself. Honestly it showed me how beautiful you are naturally and unnaturally. Makeup has done so much to help me as a person and as an artist it is pretty fun. Anyone is beautiful even if you don’t see it at first. Take a deeper look into who you are and what you enjoy because I did and it changed my life. You don’t need makeup to be beautiful but it helped me focus on the best parts of my face instead of the worst.

The look of somebody haven't mattered like forever. Everyone is beautiful from the inside and that is what counts. Of course the first look at somebody, who doesn't look "pretty" is kind of unsetteling, but after not even a minute you don't care about the look anymore, the person in front of me looks like a completely normal person to me.

saw title and thought "its gonna be like a burn victim or the elephant man with a massive growth on half his head" but he looks normal at first glance. Took a minute to actually really notice something was off about his forehead and nose. And after a bit, you forget he has them deformities. Fair play on him for embracing them and basically saying "yeah my face is like this....oh well whatever."

As a 33yo man, I started owning my body hair and i`m growing my head hair for 5 months. I felt like the power had returned back to me . In many cultures the cutting of the hair means submission, while growing it is a sign of rebeliousness, thus owning it.

I worry about my face from time to time, but there's one thing I've found that it makes it way easier to look at my face and be proud. I usually study my face in the mirror (lmao I'm not vain I swearz), but it's because I want to learn how faces look so I can draw them. So instead of viewing my face as pretty or not pretty, I'm looking at it through an anatomical point of view, and observing it. So in that way, I feel proud of my face for being human, with bone and muscle and skin and so many other factors I don't even know about, all working together to make a face. It's more like appreciating architecture than at pretty people, you know? I feel like everyone's face is beautiful in that way.

I think he looks like a fighter super hero who would blaze on across the movie screen in a chariot . But he’s stronger than a superhero because he is a true man over came rejection and still is a good person despite rejection. The more he spoke the more Handsome he became. Like if you found this man handsome

I'd love to say that with a beautiful personality, what one's face looks like doesn't matter, but... unfortunately it seems we are overwhelmingly treated according to how we look.

My face is also very scarred, but from an automobile accident ... so much of what he is saying is uplifting and motivational, but if you’re in the same shoes it’s not that easy, whatsoever. I really enjoyed this video and love that he found peace...he’s a strong man. I wish I were able to find any kind of way to feel normal and human again. I wasn’t born this way, so know the loss of having a forgetful face. That’s likely our difference, but what he’s saying still resonates with me. I’m so appreciative that there’s someone out here trying to give people hope. You’re probably a hero, my man
