Its just something I notice that sets some off. A regular female will see a hot female with a big chest or whatever and out come the claws. A regular guy sees another guy with a little fatter wallet and out come the clubs.

If that is the case, it's not a phenomenon that I'm familiar with.

Yes I've seen it in the women. They instantly think because she has big boobs, that she's promiscuous. I haven't seen the wallet thing in the men though.

Yes... but only if the female is superficial and doesn't have a nice big wallet of her own. Viscerally, women need to know a man is financially secure because she needs to believe that a man is financially able to care for offspring.

Around L.A. you see a lot of big boobed women with men who have money. I think the two go together somehow... Each has what the other wants.

I don't think the behaviour you're describing would constitute as "regular" by any stretch of the imagination.

Ugh, I hate that stereotype. I have large breasts, I'm also tall AND I have tattoos (professionally done and well thought out). It cracks me up seeing the facial expressions on people when they find out I have a degree in Aerospace Engineering, and fly planes for a hobby.

That said, the women I hang out with don't get jealous and fatty with other women, so I suppose I just don't associate with people like that. As for the men, I don't believe I've had money come up in polite conversation.

What? You guys never had the 1 up neighbor? You get a a new car, then they have a newer more expensive car in the following months. I see guys do things like that all the time.

Sure, I see that behavior in some men. My father-in-law with my husband's godfather, for one. My father-in-law is very competitive and if "John" gets a new camera, he has to get the bigger one. TVs, stereo equipment, computers, the latest phone ... he's very excited to tell you all about his newest gadget, until John gets something better and then it's off to the store.

It's tiresome.

I think something like that applies evenly to both genders. Keeping up with the Jones' and being envious of other people's success or fortune.

So does the cattyness over good looks. Lot's of women hate on a other beautiful women, and there's lots of guys who do the same thing with the pretty-boy comments. Though I will say I see more of the catty behavior coming from women who are jealous of other women when it comes to appearances.

Yes. I don't know about "big boobs" specifically, but it's not surprising. Some women can be extremely mean to any woman she feels is more attractive physically than she is. Or if she gets more positive attention, particularly from men. Of course she will never admit this; she'll go out of her way to say the opposite. It's not the case across the board, though. The cattiness stems from insecurity; some women get nasty towards other women while knowing virtually nothing about the women they are ripping apart.

I didn't realize there was a similar thing going on with men and their wallets. It must be more subtle with men. With women it seems much more aggressive and vitriolic.
