England has snowflakes, too

Apparently implying that having a face full of freckles is a turn off fro anyone in the universe is a call for Social Justice, as managers at discovered.

From CNN:
Dating site is pulling an ad campaign after receiving a barrage of complaints for suggesting red hair and freckles are "imperfections."
The posters, which sprung up in London tube and train stations Monday, featured a freckly red-haired girl with the caption: "If you don't like your imperfections, someone else will.", part of the Match Group that also owns Tinder, issued a public apology but only after members of the public took to twitter to voice their outrage.
Londoner Carrie Hill said: "Perhaps I'm a secret leopard. Or maybe they're coordinates. But my freckles are certainly not 'imperfections'."
Chloe Vinden from South Wales: "Proud to have #freckles, not #imperfection.
Well, those are two people who should provide a nice Date From Hell.


  1. I, for one, like red-haired girls with freckles. - Elric

    A face without freckles is like a sky without stars

  3. As a Person of Freckles, I have a right to speak on the issue.

    A perfect face is hard to describe and hard to remember, thus the faces of models having no imperfections tend to blur together in our minds when we try to recall them. Imperfections in facial features tend to make a face more distinct and thus more memorable. Cindy Crawford, for example, kept her tiny facial mole because it made her beauty different enough that you'd be more likely to remember her.

    Freckles like mine accomplish the same effect. They are a sign of inner beauty, of sublime intelligence, and great character. They are a blessing for the freckled and a visible sign of noble heredity and humanity for others to see. Acknowledge and respect the freckled who walk godlike among you..

  4. Need I point out that the jab about freckles was aimed at the Irish?
    As for me, I think freckles are beautiful. Any blemish adds character to a woman's face, they don't subtract. Whether it is a mole, a scar, or any mark that creates contrast, they make a woman memorable and unique. I hate makeup. When a woman piles on mountains of fakery, That detracts from her appearance big time.
    And remember, you are unique, just like every one else.

  5. Freckles, like baldness is not a disease...
    No, I don't have freckles..
