Do you think that attractive people sometimes hate on ugly yet confident folks?
I'm curious because I've seen some conventionally attractive women (this may happen with guys too but I've only seen it with women so far) who will absolutely hate on less attractive yet confident people. The attractive folks will always come up with snide reasons why someone would be interested in the ugly person--because they're easy, because they have low standards, etc. And while some of that may be true, it still reeks of entitlement--as if ugly don't deserve to feel good about themselves?
Has anyone noticed the same?
I think you need some new friends, OP.
Attractive people generally hate on everyone.
OP, you're spot-on. Just makes me adore the ugly confident person.
Only catty women and catty gay men do this.
Really? I see most of the hate on ugly people from other ugly people. The only time I see the cattiness from attractive woman is when she is left by a man for an ugly woman. Other than that, I don't think I don't see it.
Ugly people can learn to be funny to get us to like them.
I guess this is sort of similar, OP, but I was reading a thread elsewhere about a body-building forum where a member posted pictures of a very plain, average-looking geeky teen guy with a lot of attractive teenage girls - kissing him, flirting with him, and in one of the Facebook pictures he identified one of them as his girlfriend. The very picture of a teen "player", but with glasses and pimples.
The forum went ape-shit over the photos trying to figure out the story behind them - why would these girls be all over this complete dork? Was he rich and buying them gifts? Did he secretly have a huge dick? Was he gay and they were just friends? I think the guy himself eventually showed up in the forum and countered some of the assumptions being thrown around.
And I think what was offensive to these body-building forum members (whom you can assume are concerned about their bodies and appearance) was that the guy seemed to be breaking "the rules" and how they understood the world worked. Guys don't get with hot girls unless they have looks, money, a huge dick, or they're gay and just friends. In fact, that's probably why so many of those forum members are interested in body-building - so they can get hot girls. And anything that contradicts that worldview - that suggests someone is reaching the same goal without putting in the time and energy they're expending - has to be explained away or dismissed.
Which is a long way of saying, I think a lot of attractive people grow up learning that the world operates according to a set of rules - their looks entitle them to attention and deference, etc., and therefore it's paramount that they try to maintain their looks for as long as they can. And anyone who appears to get attention and deference without looks (or power, or money, etc.) has to be "explained away" - a slut with low standards, etc. - because they threaten the attractive person's worldview.
