You know, this week's choice of the BOTW and the last few posts about this BOTW and these new pictures I think have pushed me over the edge and I'm beginning to see the problem people have with this thread.
For a good while there it just seemed like a nice way to appreciate some of the good looking women out there working today in Hollywood and other areas and appreciate their work as well. Sure we all have our likes and fantasies when it comes to these women but more in the past it seemed like an ounce or two of respect and dignity was given to it.
Here, we have pretty much just Random Chick on the Street known only for wearing skimp cosplay costumes and his other than that done nothing.
She's a girl off the street and it's as creepy and disturbing as when guys want to have thier picture taking with the hot Hooters Waitress or the stranger they pass at a comic convention dressed as Slave Leia.
And there we have pictures of two women focusing solely on their large posteriors. Couple that with comments being made getting more and more sexual and vulgar it's just becoming, well... crass.
I'm hardly 100% innocent of such comments, I do have my likes and fantasies but I think I try and to be at be more tactful about it than the poster in the Katy Perry thread who said he want her "freakish reverse-jointed alien legs" wrapped around him (or something to that effect.) And, really, the two women in the pictures above are just disgusting to me in the way they are photographed and put on display in such a manner. (More-so the booty shots than the standard pose.)
These threads have devolved from, "Hey, do you think Kate Beckinsale is good looking," to "Hey! Look at these women! Would you masturbate to this?!"
At no, real, fault of Aragorn but more of the majority of the responders to it. (Though, Aragorn did pick a very questionable woman to feature this week. I mean a literal nobody
. What's next week? Snapshots of the girl at the perfume counter at the mall?)
With this thread we've also gone from various red-carpet pictures, productions pictures of the actress and the occasional glamor shot from a magazine. To... this. Pictures of this girl in skimpy cosplay outfits one of which (as I said above) damn-near being a colonoscopy.
So, here, I dust off my hands, tip my hat to our gracious host, and say I'm done and joining those who have a problem with these threads. Maybe won't be as strong or vocal about it, but I'm more seeing their point.
