Etymology 2[edit]

The expression “butters” is thought to be an abbreviation coming from the wording of “she's attractive, but her face”, referring to when a man appreciates a women’s body but does not like her face. Possibly originating in the school playground, or could be linked to wolf-whistling.

Currently, it seems to have evolved into meaning a woman is generally ugly (with no appreciation for the female's face or body).
