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.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
If I'm being completely honest, the only real surgery he would "Need" right now is a nose job. Everything else on his face isn't really that bad. With the advancements of technology, I don't think it would be that difficult to fix what is there. But even the nose job is optional imo. He looks good for what has happened.
That guy has in his DNA some mermaid’s and sea creature’s gene. And there’s nothing to shame of. Thise creatures used to exist on the Earth thousands years ago.. Unusual physical deviations some modern people have are prints of this ancient time...
I have to be honest. I really don't find him physically unattractive, and he is amazingly charismatic and dresses well. If I went on a blind date with him without first knowing what he looked like, I'd definitely hope for a second date.
Honestly I was constantly looking at your face for about first 15-20sec but when the video ended you were much much more than your face, to me you were a man I was interested in talking to.
For all those minutes after those first few seconds your face didn't matter and I bet it wouldn't even if that video was lifelong.
Oooh God, if Robert wasn't that looking, we would probably not be listening to this nice message... May God bless you for appreciating God the creator for who you are.... Mathew 6:25,31-33 talks more that I would have said
While it was unusual at first, about 5 minutes in I just realised that his face is actually normal. Kids are brutal and cruel; his story was deeply emotive and relative and it teaches some valuable lessons. Utmost respect for him!
Sorry for your condition . Humans determine genetic value by looks sorry . You can tell people how to think ,but nature doesn't care at all clearly . You know damn well what would have happened before the industrial revolution . Normal people have it tough , you will have to fight all your life twice as hard sorry . Like some one with low IQ , there really is no good out come . lives are full of tragic events why make it harder for all ? Luck you were born in the west mate .
See some of these people say I stopped judging him after I heard his speech etc but the thing is you need to immediately not judge him soon as you see him, before he says anything, that’s what everyone needs to do, because that’s what we should do as humans, only judge by character
I do not know how people judge others from their external face or beauty that something borned with us already without any self interference ...what should be judge are the things that we do ,like morality ,knowledge,experience ... i apperaciate your self confident.
can you imagine spending nine months carrying a baby, being excited for him to arrive, giving him love, only to give birth to him and reject him completely because he looks different? if my baby were born with a tumor on his face, id be thrilled by the fact that he was alive and survived, i wouldnt care if he looked different. thats what being a parent is.
Unfortunately in some places, especially highly populated countries that are encouraged to have less children like China and India (or so I've been hearing), it is more likely that parents will give up their child based on even minor deformities. They believe that since they can't have several children, the ones they have need to be as "perfect" as possible
The ugliest person I ever knew in looks had one of the most beautiful personalities. Could make you cry laughing, he was so funny. Treated everybody he came across with respect. He was a 1 in looks but an 11 confidence.
You saved me brother.
I was having thoughts about suicide.
Last month a car accidently hits me and i suffered a lot of injuries on my face. Even doctors told me that these scars on my face may never go.
You can see my profile photo.
I used to be so confident about my looks and my friends, girlfriend all compliment me about how i look.
But after the accident, my self esteem hits bottom hard.
The doctor said something about something being wrong with him, but specified the legs and face were deformed. They came up with what they could do for him after he was born. His mom didnt want him because she didnt know what to do! Doctors didn't tell enough. They fixed him when he was four. They wanted to do more. They did fine and got him that far. Thats it. Nothing else, especially if it was to make him blind, should be done. AND THANK HIS BROTHER THEY STOPPED. And no, that newest face doesn't look right. The (14 year old face on that picture) does.
When I first saw him, I kinda thought that he may have been a wrestler or an MMA style fighter. Some of the injuries in a ring/cage can get messy af with serious medical problems and possible damage similar to that.
In a way, if you think about it, he is a wrestler. Between his mom not wanting him, the tumour formerly living on his face and the relentless bullying, I mean yeah.
One thing that's amazing is how well the doctors repaired his nose, not for aesthetic reasons, but because it works very well. A lot of people with operations at any part of their respiratory system are constantly in pain, and you can hear it. I don't hear it at all in his voice.
God bless uh sir!!
The society who benefits from self-doubt, loving urslf is a rebellious act. ❤️
Finally in a era of photoshops and ppls slapping there faces wid makeups there's someone who dares to own his face as it is.
Much love n thnks for the self confidence uh hve given me. ❤️
