Are front end developers "looked down" by back end developers because front end is easier than back end?

as a front end developer I have to say the stuff the back end developers do are indeed more complex. for example for front end: html and CSS are something that kids learn. JavaScript is something they teach undergrads as a first programming language. what's your experience?

I guess I'm more of a backend dev, and it's precisely because of that I don't look down on frontend devs. While people may say that frontend stuff is easier, it is complex as it is for a backend who doesn't know anything about frontend. Even till now, I'm amazed by the HTML+CSS-only webcodes on here.
