The 17 years old girl has a 15 year old cousin who attends school with herself and one of the boys who was part of the conversation. They both started talking about this 15 year old cousin and how he is considered the , "hottest guy in school". They went on and on about how "all the girls love him" and how it is so annoying to him when the not-so-attractive girls goggle over him. The 17 year old even made the comment that it was ridiculous that this one girl who is ugly told her that she didn't understand why he didn't like her but to the 17 year old it was obviously because she wasn't attractive. I didn't know what to say. I honestly just sat their and fumbled to say something that would turn the conversation or that would reinforce to those around me that looks are not everything. I was really disheartened after this conversation. I know I sound like a mom wearing a jumper and birkenstocks, but what have we come to? I wanted to shout out my frustration. I don't know why it bothered me so much. What should I have said?
