People sometimes assume that girls want people to comment on their looks, as long as those comments are positive. Can I be the only one who doesn't? And am I incorrect in thinking that until pretty recently, girls weren't supposed to do the same to boys? If I'm not, there's a damned good reason for that. It's rude to assess someone else's appearance. To compliment someone's clothing is fine, maybe even certain physical features, if it's done in the context of a subculture where certain kinds of modifications are the norm (example: pierced ears). But to act as though you have the right to judge the aesthetic value of traits someone can't change is just dumb. Even if you're saying something nice.
