Describing people

It seems that the examples are in bad taste. Do French people talk about people so subjectively?

The only time polite people talk about appearances is when they are describing a person wanted by police for a crime.

It is a teaching exercise. However, in general, the French are not as sensitive as some, and non-malicious humour at their own or other’s ‘expense’ is taken as it is meant - friendly banter amongst friends.
