    The same way people who have low paid or average jobs like to criticise successful people etc.?

    I don't just mean criticising the same gender (if straight) but opposite gender people too.

    I have noticed with the rise of "social media" where it is more common to comment on people's looks this seems more common.

    in b4 "attractiveness is subjective" - partly true, there are some things generally considered attractive.

    Critics are often lazy, resistant to change and improvement, so I can kinda see what you're getting at, however...not all people who have "average" jobs criticise others. And not all "average" looking people criticise other people's looks. Not at all in my experience. The well-adjusted lot just get on in life, are happy and don't bother with such childishness. You probably didn't notice them, because they're not making a big fuss about their lives.

    I never said all. In fact I would say I am average looking myself haha

    But it seems to be a trend nowadays for people to criticise others' looks, I am theorising that some do it out of jealousy or (e.g. a fat man saying that a very attractive actress looks "masculine") sour grapes.

    This is similar to someone believing they are being hated on because they believe someone is jealous of them, which most often it's simply because they are a c*nt.

    Everyone criticises everyone's looks, I've seen people criticise less attractive people more, especially on social media. If a girl has bad eyebrows then she will be bombarded with memes of herself, that's just one example.

    Though yes, there are some people that do like to criticises those...more attractive/successful etc but those people are generally just judgey.

    Someone is butthurt.

    The reason you're anon is because you're exactly the kind of person I'm talking about. You've probably posted something before alluding to that. You made an interesting point, but certainly don't want your own reasons for posting brought into the discussion. The fact you've started replying more and more defensively like a little ***** shows you're not worth debating with.

    The reason you got extremely defensive when I asked why you were anon (phrased nicely) was because you were scared it was relevant. Way to go drawing attention to the reason you made that post. :rofl:

    Interestingly enough, I've never insulted anyone's looks - I don't even rate people. I don't make constructive posts in this section unless I am anonymous so there's where you're failed in trying to assume things that clearly do not make sense.

    No need to cry.

    Yeah people who are excessively critical are often jealous or lack self-esteem.

    But in my experience this is not a new trend, there will always be critics and jealous people I think.

    I don't post in this section unless anonymous so why would I do that? I think you seem a bit more upset compadre considering that you are still replying to me and pretending as if you haven't read my posts. :lol:

    Yeah I'd agree with that, social media tends to bring out or highlight some really horrible human behaviours.

    I would say they do but for slightly different reasons although again I think insecurity

    I am average looking but was pretty "popular," there was a hot guy at my school who had the social skills of a neckbeard lol. He used to try and bully me (badly because he didn't have many friends) and we made up eventually, he admitted it was because he felt insecure around me and like everyone liked me more than him.
