So am I, but even I wouldn't say Kate Middleton is anything other than a beautiful, classy, lady who married (royalty aside) below her league.

And the bolded part is why you are no better than him. So I guess my bet stands.

?!?

Um, I didn't say anything bad about her just that she's out of the dude's league. How does that make me "no better than him" ("him" being someone who votes down for any woman out of her mid-twenties and isn't a perfect 10) I'm just saying he's ugly and probably wouldn't get the time of day from her if he wasn't famous.

Has it ever crossed your mind that she just might have a different opinion about that?

Don't quit your day job, I don't think you'd make it as a professional gambler.

Ehh, I didn't say anything disparaging about Kate you know. Just that she's not pretty enough to cancel out the Royal Ugly. See. The Iguana is on to something. We're the same you and me <3

You know, the Queen wasn't bad in her day, nor was Di if you like that sort of thing. William is definitely an improvement upon Charles as well, in the horse face stakes. So, I think they are doing OK with that, really.

Sure, it's possible. Women often are lot less superficial than men when it comes to looks. But Kate, Honey, you could've done a lot better.

Kate's almost gorgeous. Will's almost handsome. Seems pretty level to me.

One thing is certain. They are deeply in love with each other - you could see from the way they were looking at each other outside the hospital with the baby.

That's got to be something of a first for a Royal marriage...

So... your argument is that he's ugly, and she's a whore. I rest my case.

If you want to put words in my mouth, sure.

Well, I'm not putting anything else in your mouth, that's for sure.

But more seriously, is there any other way to read what you wrote? If there is, please explain it.

Last time there was a big stir about something I said in here, I checked to see if she found it offensive. She claimed she didn't. I don't have any reason to think she'd lie about that, but who knows! She's not into celebrity culture at all. Women I was previously acquainted with were downright vicious about celebrity appearances, though that's usually more about fashion and makeup.

In real life the 'hot or not' and the closely related 'your top 5' kind of stuff is more of a guys only thing, but the only guys that ever implied any discomfort with it were more of the sexually repressed religious types.

Hell, last time we got together for some Game of Thrones eps (we tend to talk during eps a lot since we've all read the books), there was a spirited debate about whether "Daenerys's tits were weird" started by a very left-wing guy with a Master's degree who will happily promote gender equality at length any chance you give him.

You might find this funny/ironic, but my company does have one younger lady working for us, and whenever I'm together with my boss and some of his crony hires, the conversation often turns to how hot she is and the 'things' they want to do to her. And that actually makes me rather uncomfortable. If they left it at "OMG she's hot", ok whatever. But some of the things they say, especially considering they have power over her career, are pretty fucked up and creepy. If I wasn't telecommuting the vast majority of the time I'd probably be looking for another job.

Up. She carries herself in a very attractive way and she's pretty to boot.

I don't find it funny or ironic. I find it sad. Apparently, you do possess a modicum of decency and self-awareness: you just choose to ignore it when you post here. Or something.
