Netizens discuss why a guy’s appearance matters

Netizens recently discussed difference in the perception of an action of a guy depending on his appearance, drawing much attention online. Although two men may perform the exact same action in the same exact concept, people may perceive the meaning of the action differently depending on the appearance of the man. According to a recent post on Pann, handsome men and ugly men are treated differently based purely on appearance. Although the post does not condone the this practice, the creator of the post does acknowledge that people often perceive things based off appearance.

The original post on Pann featured a cartoon picture showing the difference between four pictures of four men of different appearances while in the same pose with a young girl. A translation of the caption can also be found below:


If a handsome guy touches you, it’s a green light.
But if an ugly guy touches you, then he’s a molester.
I’m a girl and acknowledge this.
