Young attractive women often think the the world is full of nice people. Everywhere they turn, people are friendly, helpful, and so willing to go out of their way to lend a hand. Isn't life grand?

I'm beginning to suspect that people who are intimidating are often under the impression that the world is full of considerate and respectful people. I'm finding the realization that this is not a universal experience just as sad as I once did as a young girl.

As I became prettier... strangers became nicer and more willing to go out of their way to assist me.

One of the harshest truths...

(Link) that nature grades on a curve. Because of this, biology will always cast shadows on our thinking, and collectively over time, on our culture. Thus, 'beauty' (simple mating fitness) is one of the most powerful forces acting on our thinking. The tragedy is not that this is so (you might as well rage against gravity or time), but as you pointed out - that young attractive women seem totally clueless about it, and in naivete ascribe it to the general niceness of the world. :-(
