Doesn't it betray their "natural superiority"?

Ahh the reasoning behind a "catfish."
The catfish is an interesting breed often, often characterized by whisker like objects, as pictured below.
The "internet catfish" is a special kind of breed, however. No one really knows what they look like, adding to their mysterious side. However, whisker like objects may be common, often characterized as a "neckbeard."
Why would an internet catfish pose as someone else?
Some possible reasons...
-- They are annoyed with internet creeps and want to troll them by pretending to be someone they aren't. (Guys don't really get messages, but girl profiles do)
-- They are homosexual and get turned on by messaging dudes and getting dirty responses.
-- They are actually attempting to trick the female gender by acting as a "relatable" person. That way they can ask supposedly sexual questions without triggering red flags.
-- They are actually girls themselves, and feel ugly as they are, so they put a fake profile to make themselves feel better... Sometimes asking a question about it as well with the fake picture.
How can one stop the terrifying approach of catfishes?
Google images, or pray and burn sacrifice to the mighty GAGon and *maybe* he will come depending on how lazy he is.
Why we should still be careful even after Google images.
Not all pictures are reverse searchable. For instance, if they took an attractive friend's facebook profile picture and set it as their own, there is a chance nothing would pop up from searching it. There is probably also a way to edit photos so they don't pop up.
Moral of the story: Think.2
