Pet peeve of mine for sure (not that I approve of good looking people doing it either, but the closer the gap, the less disgusting it seems to me). Thoughts?

Nobody should objectify another human being of course. But I know what you mean.. when some hideous monster like Rush Limbaugh goes on and on about how wide Hillary Clinton's hips are it comes off as even more ridiculous than if some super hot hunk was putting down a woman for her appearance. When ugly people do it, the natural response is "have you looked in a mirror lately? Who are you to talk trash about someone else's appearance when you are ugly as sin yourself?!"

It's something I really dislike about the internet. Everyone thinks they are qualified to express their expert opinion and the audience really doesn't have a clue whether a particular poster is a 300 pound porker, an average joe/jane, or someone that would turn heads while strolling through town. Anonymity is a two edged sword.

so wait, are u saying that ugly people cant say what they think about the appearence of others just cause they are ugly?? that does not makes sense. Plus, ugly is a subjective term, so what may be ugly for you, may be beautiful for other. Plus, anyone has the right to talk about whatever they want despite their physical appearence.

I cannot believe some of the threads people start here---the superficiality displayed is astounding.

Should be the exact opposite. If it wasn't for the fuglies, the beautiful people wouldn't know how gorgeous they are.

We all have preferences. You should be able to state them without making derogatory remarks about those who don't exhibit the features you find attractive. I find it egregious that an unattractive male would be critical of a pretty girl with small boobs, boyish hips, and/or a small ass.

But you calling someone a "porker" is somehow exempt ....

Is someone being critical of someone you like? It sounds as though someone has said something about that person's looks that has gotten under your skin. You look like a very young man---and my guess is that one of your buddies (peer pressure) has made fun of someone you find attractive.

LMAO, way off base here. And it's my job to play armchair psychologist . Oh, and I made my profile public briefly for the course of this thread (it would be hypocritical to call out people for hiding behind their computer monitors while making nasty remarks about the appearances of others).
