Ugly Duckling turns uglier

People generally don’t appreciate inner beauty. They judge the book by its cover. The ugly duckling turns off people. People don’t want to stick around to see the ugly duckling turn into a beautiful swan. They may even throw stones at the duckling. The abused is likely to slowly turn into an abuser. The Ugly Duckling turns uglier.
