I know everyone has strong views and opinions, but this post is about Ugly Betty and her braces. Please keep the conversation about those topics and nothing else. Thanks.

prn.... obviously that's what you meant. U HOMOPHOBE!

anyway moving on from the bigotry...

I had breaces for 3 years as a teen. Betty is suppose to be ugly and unattractive. Braces are not attractive. She should have to wear them every season. Unless they find something else to make ugly with like fatness, warts, herpes or something.

prn u still a bigot.

Actually the irony of anyone calling anyone who doesn't agree with them a bigot is the most amusing thing here in this tired discussion, now back to Ugly Betty...

Sorry for replying to this comment instead of the last, I couldn't figure the comment thing out. : ) Anyways, I definitely didn't say that, but you can assume whatever you want.

That is a dumb reason to be "mad at" a show. And my mom had train track braces for eight years when I was a teenager, so she was very much an adult. Then again, I guess things could have changed in the last ten years.

Okay, let's avoid getting in a flame war about this. But some people, myself included, believe that homosexuality is wrong. Let's just agree to disagree, and not make this comment section a giant argument.

Why would gay characters be something to get mad over?

Er okay. That's dumb. In the Spanish version of Ugly Betty(Yo Soy Betty La Fea) the show went on for a year or so with Betty having her braces. She even had em as a kid!! So what the heck.

btw: The Spanish version is/was WAYYY better than the American one.
