"Resisting Connection Following Social Exclusion : Rejection by an Attractive Suitor Provokes Derogation of an Unattractive Suitor"
http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1948550615584196 ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sci-Hub to download )
http://www.medicaldaily.com/single-women-more-vindictive-toward-ugly-suitors-after-being-turned-down-attractive-333102 ( News article write up )

Across two studies, we demonstrated that although rejection provoked derogation of and distancing from the rejecter, rejection by an attractive man also led to derogation of and distancing from an unattractive man even when that unattractive man offered acceptance. Thus, although past research has suggested that acceptance may mitigate the negative impact of rejection (DeWall et al., 2010), rejection itself may influence from which targets an individual desires acceptance. By accounting for the social value of the source of acceptance/ rejection, which we operationalized as physical attractiveness, we demonstrated that experiencing rejection from a higher value social target can lead to distancing from a lower value social target even if that lower value social target offers acceptance.

These data shed light on mixed findings in the social exclusion literature whereby rejection sometimes leads to prosocial behaviors seemingly aimed at restoring connection (Maner et al., 2007) and other times to antisocial behaviors seemingly aimed at undermining connection (Twenge et al., 2001). It is possible that resisting connection following rejection is exactly the goal when it comes to low value sources of acceptance. Specifically, we suggest that feeling connected to low-value social targets validates a low social standing, motivating individuals to actively avoid connections with low status others. 

Of course, our studies do not provide direct evidence for identification with a low attractiveness person as a mechanism so this explanation needs to be examined in future research. Indeed, without testing other contexts (e.g., feedback from two attractive individuals), we cannot be sure if the distancing and derogation observed in our research is specifically targeted at unattractive individuals or if it is a broader pattern spurred by rejection by an attractive individual. However, consistent with our theoretical position, we did not find evidence that rejection by an unattractive man spurred derogation of an attractive man.


Participants were 185 heterosexual female undergraduate students at the University of Toronto, not involved in a romantic relationship. Seventeen participants expressed suspicion and 2 participants withdrew leaving 166 participants.



I'm going to try and post papers in the future with a proper analysis to see how valid they really are because the way papers are used in argument is flimsy most of the time, but fuck it I'm dumping this one as-is because it's funny.

All social interactions may not be treated equally, if it's a real effect then it goes further in proving the anecdotes of women actively showing disgust at ugly people when they have honest, accepting, intentions.

This study applies to online dating too. If she gets rejected by Chad, her standards only increase and every subhuman that tries to talk to her is worthy of prison time

TLDR: when girls get rejected by Chad, they take it out on you

When girls get rejected by you, they don't take it out on Chad

Another confirmation of of the blackpill.
