I am ambivalent about this post. I already feel deeply guilty, and like a mean girl. However, I thought it was interesting enough…..
The PC nonsense surrounding the choosing of a non white didn’t really shock or upset me. I was stuck on something else when gazing upon the winner:
“That baby is not cute. At all.”
Seems I wasn’t alone.
In case you couldn’t read the last comment: “That is way more than a lazy eye. She has the look of a typical Mexican that has had far too much to drink and can’t find their way back to the stationwagon.”
So here we are. A bunch of assholes, talking shit about a poor defenseless baby.
What’s the point of this? Egalitarianism.
Egalitarianism is not just about race and sex, there is also the insidious agenda to completely circumvent biology and basic hierarchy. I find that the media and Hollywood in particular relish in trying to convince us that the aesthetically unappetizing is actually an object of beauty.
And of course, we’re the assholes, for reminding the world that 2+2= 4.
If the contest was just to find the next non-white cutest baby, why not this participant?
Commenter UFASP said it best: Someone is TRYING to make US sensible, HONEST people capable of order and rank– who are not all sentiment and have some grip on reality– into the bad guys because at every moment they tempt us into saying the obvious. It’s like we’re being poked with a stick. The ugly stick! The ones provoking this response out of us– they’re the indecent ones– not us who have some sense of aesthetic priority.
Obviously it’s usually not about babies. Maxim was recently raked over the coals when it published it’s list of “Top 5 Unsexiest Women.” The rag was called sexist, mean, degrading to women…not to mention the ubiquitous “small dick” jokes.
But where they being mean, or is it the case that men (and women) are a little sick and tired of being told who is and is not beautiful by the agenda driven douches in Hollywood?
Here are some of the women who made Maxim’s fug list, as well as other women Hollywood touts as “beautiful.”
Sarah Jessica Parker
Starred in a hit show where she was approached by men all the time, in countless situations, dated a whole bunch of hot rich guys, and then finally, we she was in her 40s, got the unavailable long-life bachelor alpha to marry her.
She has also been in fashion countless magazines usually reserved for models.
She was on Grey’s Anatomy, which I have never seen. A quick google of her character showed she was involved with this dude on the show.
Also, I saw way too many magazine spreads like this trying to convey her “sex appeal”….ugh please don’t do that.
From the show Glee, where she gets the guy over the gorgeous Quinn. Magazines are already benefiting from her eagerness to appear sexy.
She was in People’s 50 most beautiful people in 2009. I had to provide a link for fear you’d all call me a liar.
I could not find one non-photoshopped/airbrushed photo. Beyonce is pretty….but….
World’s most beautiful woman? Have you done the necessary legwork?
America says no, and Hollywood just keeps on pushing it. She was featured in the Dark Knight and Agent Provocateur, as well as sexy dude’s magazines.
Again with the most beautiful….I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE
Hollywood has gone into overdrive trying to make her a sex symbol. I don’t get it. Is it because she’s attainable to nerds or something?
Honorable mentions to Haylie Duff
and Jennifer Aniston (who has been heavily featured on People’s most beautiful from 1998-2012)
Things have turned on their head so much that this stupid concept of “fairness” trumps basic biology to seek what is beautiful. A revolt against nature.
I honestly believe if there wasn’t such a push towards the acceptance of unattractive people as sex objects, there wouldn’t be as much push-back. I don’t think people are inherently mean, and I certainly am not….but there comes a point when an honest answer to the incessant prodding (isn’t she hot!? ISN’T SHE HOT!) needs a firm “Fuck no, dude.”
And am not letting the dudes get away with anything either……
always date/are married to completely gorgeous women.
What these dudes don’t understand is you can get these girls in real life because you’re famous, rich, and powerful. If you’re playing a “normal dude” it just becomes kind of sad that you have these delusions.
Hollywood does love the “nebbish loser gets hot blonde” story-line….but that’s another post.
