Is it mean spirited for girls to do a poll of the boys in their senior class?

For example, let’s say that two of the boys in their class are:

1. Extremely handsome, but carries himself with no confidence, cried when someone in his class beat him up, and can’t defend himself.

2. Extremely ugly, but a class clown, and doesn’t let anybody pick on him.

The girls rated both of the boys in “looks.”

1.  ‘1’

2. ‘8’

Did they do that because his lack of confidence makes him ugly, thus the ugly boy being rated good-looking because he stands up for himself AND has a great sense of humor? Or were they being bitter because they can’t stand him, thus rating him as uglier than the one who’s actually ugly? FYI - prior to this poll, this boy snitched on the older brother of one of the girls who participated in the poll, because the older brother was picking on him. Obviously, his sister took her brother’s side, as she felt that her classmate should’ve defended himself instead of snitching on her brother. Could that have been instrumental in him getting a “1” in “looks”?

    I hope you are making straight A's in your senior year?

    If you're not... you are spending entirely too much of your time on things that don't matter at ALL!

    To me, the whole thing just sounds rather spiteful and thoughtless. Did you tell the boys the results, or just snigger among yourselves? Grow up.

    The whole high school custom of "rating" other students is juvenile (well, they ARE juveniles) and also mean-spirited.

    My feeling about this: Don't waste time overthinking this. Form your own opinions about your classmates and forget the "polls", which are nothing like fair elections.

    Only you can judge your intentions - I have no idea whether any of you are 'mean spirited' - but it's certainly STUPID.

    Please try to spend a little time pondering the likely consequences of your actions before you leap into some other silly joke.

     HS students rating , actually taking a poll, of other student by looks is idiotic, immature, degrading, demoralizing, destructive and down right mean
