Ears and Loathing
"But you don't have big ears," you might say, if you've never met me, or even if you have.
I think my ears are my most obvious feature, but I would also concede that the flaws we believe in are often the ones that go unnoticed by our peers, who are too worried about their own weird features.
For proof, here's a photo I would have used as an author photo, if I'd written a book called "What Mr. Spock and I Have in Common: True Stories by Leigh Stein":
And here's what it looks like if my hair is down, and my ear just needs some breathing room. My boyfriend has been cropped out of this photo to protect his identity.
