Anyhow, your experience could have just as well happened somewhere else. I mean, imagine working at a K-Mart in Yakima, for example (lots of Latinos, generally poor). If you are better looking, you'll have one of two outcomes (or both). One, the opposite sex will lust after you, to the point of annoyance; and/or two, the same sex will gossip/be jealous of/plot against you; regardless if they are also above-average looking, or are also low-income.

Beauty can be intimidating. That being said, Southern California is as good a place as any for this. Even the rich people are poor there; and most everybody looks good.
Yes, I lived in Seattle before and I experienced that phenomenon of overboard Tall Poppy Syndrome. This mentality is also common in the Upper Midwest, where I grew up. Physical attractiveness, displaying wealth, outspoken intelligence, self-appreciation, and other achievements that make you stand out are discouraged.

I don't wear makeup. I always wear jeans & a plain t-shirt outside work, and I keep my hair in a bun. Not trying to attract attention to my looks. But I still have this pretty babyface and a skinny body and believe me that's enough to garner negative reactions. I'm not going to get a ton of facial piercings and an ugly Skrillex haircut just to counteract it.
