Dosent matter what it looks like. You should be getting max value form your big hands, if he calls a raise with worse you raise. If he dosent call a raise, you raise ATC.
Unless you are 3betting an insane frequency with the intention of bluffing
very very often then there is no reason not to value bet this.
You cant have it both ways. You cant flat with KK because he folds to a raise yet fold (or even worse.. call) QTo because he never calls with worse.
If he folds so much that you cant get value from KK then 3bet him to death with any hand you wont flat with and dont flat with weak hands like QTo.
Of course as soon as you do this you start to realise, people do call with worse.
