Today, I was quizzing a girl at my college, and I noticed that when she answered a question, her ears wiggled. It was cute, so I pointed it out. She burst into tears, and the guy next to me said, "Way to make her feel insecure, douchebag." FML
Tao26 tells us more :
My exact words were "Hey, your ears wiggle when you answer questions, haha. That's cute." Not the smoothest thing to say obviously, but I guess I should have kept my comment to myself.

A lot of it has to do with being teased so mercilessly that the victim becomes insecure.

The only thing unfortunate is that the bullies don't know they are scarring a person for life when they attack.


Yes and its very unfortunate. he probably just said "Haha, your ears wiggle!" without even being able to explain himself, she took it completely wrong. I have some flaws that I hate when people point out, but I don't go that far with it.

I can move my ears a little bit voluntarily and often do it without realising. It's almost like a stretching feeling and feels nice/relieving.
My boyfriend thinks it is really funny and often points it out when I do it then wants me to do it more so he can laugh at me. Which in turn makes me really uncomfortable and self conscious about it.
Things like that can easily make a person extra sensitive =

I got pretty upset when my friends pointed out that sometimes my nose wiggles when I talk. They were really cruel about it. Now whenever someone points it out I can't help but be visibly upset by it. Past experience defines your actions and reactions.

21- I thought the same thing. Why did he feel the need to wiggle in there? Op could've saved himself with "I'm sorry I didn't mean it in a mean way. I think It's adorable"

At least you didn't try to compliment her by saying her ears were like Dumbo's for the wiggle part. Some people don't think Dumbo's big wiggly ears are cute.

Kids called me dumbo when I was a kid because my ears were too big for my head. My mom always said I would grow into them but I was so insecure I didn't believe her.

Yea dude my ears always Stuck out and people called me an elf until I was 16 (as I am also short and petite)...But all that toughened me up. It takes a Lot to offend me now.

56- Yeah, I did around 13 or so.

58- It really does make you stronger. I learned to make fun of myself & the teasing kinda stopped a little. If you can laugh at yourself & don't care what others think then they don't have any ammunition.

"haha ur ears wiggle ur weird" "wtf y r ur ears moving" "can u stop"
because people make fun of others, you fucking walnut. If you're told that one of your attributes is bad, you probably don't want people pointing it out
