I'd say depends on who said it. Some guys like cougars. Many younger women dislike cougars.

As I'm only 26, I'm too young to be called a cougar. Though a buddy jokes I'm approaching "cub" age.

However, in my circle, a cougar is usually an older woman doing things like bleaching her hair and tanning her body in an attempt to look younger and get younger guys. I don't really respect cougars, and I've never used it as a compliment.

Guy here...

A cougar is an older lady who is hot and sexy... If that does not offend you, take it as a compliment.

Famous cougars include Cher and Demi Moore and Cameron Diaz. I would be HONORED to join their ranks, should I ever find myself dating a younger man.

Cougar has always had a negative connetation. I would hate to be called a cougar, now a milf is a different story. I have been called a milf

I think "cougar" is derogatory. However, I guess it's better than the male equivalent= "horny old goat".

I think there needs to action and intent to be a 'cougar.' So, if I'm just hot, but I'm hanging out with no intent of picking up younger men, then I don't think I'm a cougar. If I'm being called a cougar, then perhaps I need to stop shopping at Forever 21 and get myself some age appropriate clothes ;)

So, I'm not sure - why is it derogatory? If someone looks and acts the part, what else are they trying to project?
