this chick is fat, yo
      #5852464 - 05/17/06 02:59 PM

ok OOT, this is my venting post. i realize by being a woman, i'm in a .5% minority, and i'm sure i will take heat for this post, but i really don't care.

this forum is one of the most misogynistic places i have ever had the pleasure of frequenting. most of it is in good fun, but it really gets out of hand sometimes. i could provide many comments and examples, but i'm sure most of you know what i'm talking about. but to be specific, i would like to explore one example, which is the frequent comments on women's weight.

just today, i have had the pleasure of reading three threads in which a woman was described as fat, or chubby, or whatever... you guys spend all day analyzing women to the slightest flaw, and laugh about it, when in reality most of you are either not socially aware or attractive enough to get with a woman with half of her "rating." who knows if i'm the only one, but i'm pretty sick of it.

i realize saying this will make nothing change, the misogyny and abusiveness will continue... as will the superficiality... fine. but hey, how about at least when you post a picture of some girl in relation to some story to rate her or whatever, you post a pic of yourself. or when you call some chick fat because she hasn't appeared in the latest playboy, post a pic of yourself and we'll see how you guys measure up. that way, while you're busy rating some girl and making fun of her, you can at least withstand the heat yourself. if you aren't man enough to do that at the very least, well then, i pity you.

I cant say that I disagree w/ anything you have posted. And, probably in your opinion, I am a blatant offender of some of these things, there is no way Im putting up any pics of any girls I talk about to satisfy your insecurity. Someones got a pic of me, somewhere, they can post it if they want, but Im not going out of my way.


edit: the things that people "say" in this forum, are what 99% of them are thinking in their normal life, so you really should be thanking us for the insight. the other 1% of us say it here, and in real life.

I don't think it's as much about mysogeny as it is about creating standards. I think dcifrths described the girl as "chubby" because he wanted to make it seem like it really was a typical, non-model kind of girl, not because he thought there was anything wrong with it. most guys assume that all other guys want skinny girls so when it comes to rating girls that's the standard they go by.

that's just my impression, there are probably a few other ways of looking at it. fwiw a lot of the better relationships I have been in have been with chubby girls.

horrible analogy. girls aren't public figures who have made their careers out of the talent they've proclaimed about their weight. their appearance isn't the way it is specifically for the entertainment of male minds (regardless of whether or not you think so). try again please.

Ms. Duck,

The fact is, some posters who talk like this are being funny and pushing the line of taste. Some are trying to be funny by pushing the taste-line, and failing. A few are just mysoginist pigg-os. Try not to take 99% of what is said around here seriously, or better, have fun by taunting the internet nerdballs whenever they get over the line. Most guys on here are very serious and polite little geeks in real life and compensate by gettin frisky or indignant on the cyberweb. (Some are true socio-paths, but no-one takes them seriously anywhere.)

I myself like fat chicks, so I'm exempt from all criticism.

Still in Barcelona? Have a sangria on me... Or better yet, a senorita!

The threads weren't berating the fat posters at all. In fact, it was more a thread about "it's ok that you're fat, I want to provide you with inspiration to get thinner to make your life better." Furthermore, in those threads, no one rated the pics of the male posters and said unpleasant things about them (or if there were some, I missed them, but in the majority this did not occur).

I've been around internet and preinternet message boards longer than 99% of people and this board is not any more misogynistic than any other. I think what you're complaining about is masculinity, not misogynistic. This is how actual men talk when women aren't watching them. I recommend you never go straight.

is this not the perfect thread for my avatar or what?

This is dead on. Female celebrities and private women alike. Why else would women give a damn about what they look like? Why is it that words like fat and chubby come off as offensive? Because women want to appeal to men.

Edit: Or to women, depending on sexual preference.

Fslexduck - I think "misogyny" and "abusiveness" are a bit overboard - "superficial" is spot on.

I know for a fact I am not an offender in your eyes - as I've never once posted a negative comment looks wise about a chick on these boards.

However, I have to ask you - if someone posts a picture of a woman, and other posters are asked to rate her, how could this exercise be anything but "superficial"?

Oh, you speak too soon when you say no one wants to see pictures of men here. I would very much like to see you all post links to nude pictures of yourselves, and then I (and any other female OOTers) would get to pick you apart, give you numerical ratings, comment on aspects of your anatomy that are repellemt or "deal breakers," and discuss whether or not you "measure up" (remembering by definition that half of you are below the median).

Given that by and large you are an uncomely, ill-groomed lot with clothes on (going by pictures I have seen posted), I would be interested in seeing whether things improve without clothes....

while you are 100% correct about the posters of this forum, let me just say that the vast majority of us are guys and we are not here to be politically correct.

Saying "that's not right" won't change the fact that guys judge women on their looks. That's just the way it is.

But I do like your calling out the idiots who are constantly bagging on girl's looks here...I'd like to see how they'd do being rated themselves, as well!

I would very much like to see you all post links to nude pictures of yourselves, and then I (and any other female OOTers) would get to pick you apart, give you numerical ratings, comment on aspects of your anatomy that are repellemt or "deal breakers," and discuss whether or not you "measure up" (remembering by definition that half of you are below the median).

Given that by and large you are an uncomely, ill-groomed lot with clothes on (going by pictures I have seen posted), I would be interested in seeing whether things improve without clothes....




You first.

That may be asking a little too much of the typical male physique/attractiveness profile on this site.

Hey kettle... you're black.

You're either full of crap and this is a troll or you're different than 99% of the girls that I know. Girls talk about guys just like we talk about girls. The only difference is that girls tend to be a little more discreet.

And, I happen to be socially aware and have a good track record of getting woman pretty high on any scale (except the weight scale).

Saying "that's not right" won't change the fact that guys judge women on their looks. That's just the way it is.

But I do like your calling out the idiots who are constantly bagging on girl's looks here...I'd like to see how they'd do being rated themselves, as well!

I wish I was smart enough to post something good in this thread, but frankly I am just not that intelligent of a person.

With that said, I am socially attractive enough that I can get girls so I laugh at this post.

Those who aren't would be witty enough to post something that when used in normal conversation can pick up girls based on their intellect.

I think that covers the 2+2 population in that in one way or another we can get girls and not the ones that look like that some of us may be ourselves.

I'd post a picture of myself and the girl I am dating, I have nothing to hide.

That happens in the real life, when you actually meet the woman and can judge her based on other attributes.

I think what you have to realize is, the majority of guys are insensitive idiots. Especially internet guys. And they don't come here to learn, you're not going to open anyone's mind. The same fat bastard who's saying he wouldn't "hit that" because the woman isn't photoshopped enough for his taste is still going to be saying that next week. It sucks for women, but if you're sensitive about these kinds of things, you can either develop a tougher skin or find a more suitable environment. I'm glad you made this thread though, because it will result in nothing but entertaining drama.

Duck,

Show us a pic of yourself. Then perhaps we will reciprocate. You're the one accusing the males here of hiding in anonymity.

Btw,

I agree very few can get girls that hot, but what's wrong with rating them? Even if we can't get them, we can still rate them, although I do think OOT's standard is way too high. Everyone here would do almost all the girls posted, except the whale above.

FWIW, I do not doubt that Vanessa is completely sincere and she doesn't judge people in such a manner-at least not in the rawest sense.

I do agree that she shouldn't expect the rest of us to be held to such a "high" standard.

actually... i don't talk about women the way you all do and it makes me cringe a little bit.

guys like to make assumptions about the way girls talk with each other about guys... there are some girls that are just as harsh, but it is in no way the majority. girls certainly don't have things like commonly accepted "rating" scales, and it isn't an accepted reality amongst women that one needs to receive a certain rating on this scale to be eligible, regardless of things like personality or intelligence.

i certainly make judgments about the appearance of all people, men, and women... but i don't talk about it in anything like the same way that men do, neither do most of my female friends. it is a completely different dynamic (and i know, because often when i'm in a group of guys, i'm "one of the guys" and i hear a lot of the stuff they say)

Phoenix - how is this "insensitive"? What is one to "learn"? Learn to lower one's standards of female attractiveness? How can one do this based solely on a pic of the girl?

If it's a question of "honesty" - again, this is hard to do just looking at a pic, when men are inundated on a daily basis with pics of extremely attractive women.

I feel that this problem is a lot worse than you say it is. What is happening here is intelligent people are propogating a culture that effectively destroys most women's self-esteem before they know themselves well enough to have a good picture of themselves as an individual.

I dont think, however, that the correct response is to turn around and establish a culture seeking to do the same thing towards males.

Hey kettle... you're black.




actually... i don't talk about women the way you all do and it makes me cringe a little bit.

guys like to make assumptions about the way girls talk with each other about guys... there are some girls that are just as harsh, but it is in no way the majority. girls certainly don't have things like commonly accepted "rating" scales, and it isn't an accepted reality amongst women that one needs to receive a certain rating on this scale to be eligible, regardless of things like personality or intelligence.

i certainly make judgments about the appearance of all people, men, and women... but i don't talk about it in anything like the same way that men do, neither do most of my female friends. it is a completely different dynamic (and i know, because often when i'm in a group of guys, i'm "one of the guys" and i hear a lot of the stuff they say)




I dont know if its your social situation, your sexual preference, the girls that are your friends etc, but this is the opposite of everything Ive encountered. Some of my best friends are single, late 20 something girls, and they are all just as harsh if not harsher than my guy friends. My guy friends, I happen to hang out with more, so I hear it more from them, but in my experience, girls are just as horny, just as judgemental, and just as shallow as guys. You need to stop making this an issue of sex (m v f) and come up with something else to gripe about.

So, the fact that we're open and honest with each other about our judgments somehow makes it worse? Whoa.





there's a lot of different language to say the same thing. and just because i think someone is slightly overweight, i wouldn't say things like damn you a fool for trying to bang that bitch, or whatever.

Different types of people use different language. If you don't like lockerroom talk, find a different forum with less males.

guids,

I feel the same way as you. My female friends do it, my girlfriend and I do it, my female coworkers do it. The things I've heard come out of some of these chicks' mouths never cease to amaze me.

This is about finding some sort of moral high ground that just doesn't exist.

I would agree that, from what I've seen, women are less superficial than men when considering eligibility (though it gets closer the older men get).

However, if the idea you are getting from these message boards, is that the same superficial judgments passed on women (again, based soley on their pic) on these boards, is similar to judgments passed in real life... I would bet you are way off.

I dont think I have ever really taken offense to anything said about a chick on this forum, or in real life for that matter. I tend to take the stuff written on here in stride and laugh because I just picture the poster of the comments as some skinny, pale, college kid who has only had sex w/ 1-2 girls.

I myself like to rate chicks in my own mind and on this site. I dont rate dudes on their monatary worth or by their looks for the most part. I tend to value intelligence and humor above all else. Fancy cars and paychecks are of no interest to me.

I just find that sometimes on here guys have crazy standards of what constitutes hot. Obviously, some thin, tan, big breasted woman is going to get a way better score for looks alone on a site like this. That doesnt mean that those are the only chicks these guys will bang (well, some of them anyway).

Everyone has different tastes on here. One dude will post a pic of his GF and a bunch of people post "I'd hit that" posts and others throw up in their mouths a little.

I think it's obsurd to take anything written on here personally. If you dont like what's being said and you cant laugh it off, stop reading it. It's mostly in jest and all BS anyway. And the people that are serious, well that's just their P.O.V. and I hope that they actually get those girls who meet their standards.

No, no, I do think there is a moral highground. somebody, somewhere, doesnt base their initial attraction/reaction on looks and the sexuality they exude. Im sure there is someone, somewhere that does this, but I doubt ill ever meet them.

while i'm not personally offended, it pisses me off for the reasons that i think it propogates a culture of misogyny. by having things on this internet forum and guys proving how cool they are by the best insults of women, it propogates the standard that making fun of women makes one cool... that's what pisses me off. the effects things like this have on the overall society, rather than individually potentially offensive things (because i actually have a pretty thick skin and can hold my own when it comes to these things, as those who know me can attest to)

E-vagina, eh? I think you need a better term. E-penis is fine, because guys want to have huge penises (penii?). Do you really think chicks want larger vaginas?

Would e-clitty work? No... e-breasts? No...

Good lord, what's the female equivalent of an e-penis?

The first showing of the episode is scheduled for Tuesday, June 20, 10 pm (eastern and pacific time). The last I heard there will probably be a party at one of the places featured in the episode, but I don't know if that's definite. I am sure that Edward will make an announcement if/when it's a done deal. FWIW my friends back in New Orleans will be having a viewing party, and perhaps 2p2ers elsewhere will be doing the same.

I really think you're taking the effect of an internet forum way too seriously. People don't actually treat women worse just because they dissect flaws in private. If they have a one night stand and don't call again, it's because of way more than looks.

On a serious note:

Men are men. Women are women. Men and women are not the same. Every man is not the same as all other men. Every women is not the same as all other women.

Are looks more important to most men than to most women? Probably.

Does not finding fat women attractive mean that a man hates women? No.

Do most men look for the same things in women that most women look for in men? Probably not.

Is this politically incorrect? Apparently.

Is it somehow morally wrong? No.

Do we have a responsibility to spend our lives nurturing the self-esteem of strangers? No.

Do we help them by encouraging them to think being obese is attractive? No.

Does having a good time by pointing out the faults in celebrities or women that have posted their pics on the Internet mean we hate women or that we call them names or otherwise treat them with disrespect in our daily lives? No.

It's the Internet people. Have fun. Try not to take it too seriously.

Well, there's no such thing as the easter bunny, santa claus or the non-political lesbian, but I don't want to get dragged into this.

Theres plenty of stuff out there thats aimed at man bashing. There's a whole network devoted the castrization of men. It's called lifetime.

The reason men judge women is because we can.

Men have power and women have their looks.

Nothing more unattractive than a powerful women or a poor man, that's the truth. period.

Do you honestly think we could ever live in a world where people don't rate/comment on other people? It's not going to happen? Obviously, I have more of a problem if really out of line things were being said/done to a woman to purposefully to hurt her feelings or affect her in some way. But this is just a site for people's opinions and blowing off steam. By getting upset at this crap and posting an entire thread on it, you are just giving truth to the misogynistic view of the nagging, whinny woman.

Also, I think girls are WAY worse when it comes to dissecting the looks of another woman. We do it all the time. Women are catty bitches. Guys are simply stating their preference for women they'd like to [censored]. They are not doing it to purposefully hurt chicks feelings.

I really think you're taking the effect of an internet forum way too seriously. People don't actually treat women worse just because they dissect flaws in private. If they have a one night stand and don't call again, it's because of way more than looks.





Woah, woah, no, if I dont call after a one night stand, its because the next morning I realized I made a mistake and was too drunk to see she wasnt good looking, who wants to go out with a non-good looking girl who will go sleep w/ you after a night, rather than a good looking girl who will too. Im shallow, Im the first to admit it. I treat fat people, people who dont take care of themselves, etc, much more coldly at first than someone who obviously has some self-respect and takes the time to not look like a fat slob. I dont give a [censored] what you think about me, but most people do this, subconsciencely or not.

Dunleavy sucks so hard.

It is a question of honesty, to an extent. But it's also a matter of the ridiculous standards that the media has implanted in the average male's brain, the intense objectification of women throughout history that persists to this day, and just a matter of courtesy. The average male doesn't understand the effect that the above factors have on the average female.

Everyone is insecure, but women in particular have an enormous weight on their shoulders to fit into the male's standard of attractiveness, even when she's smart enough to realize that it's BS. When guys are talking about how a woman is ugly or hot, they never realize how this affects the women in the room. It very strongly reinforces their pressure and insecurity, sometimes to very negative results.

So sometimes it's helpful to know that there are women in the room. I'm not saying this is the OP's situation, I'm thinking she's just one of the smart women who wonders why the hell there isn't some kind of reciprocity. The answer here is that it's 99.5% males, so the fat women are going to get bashed and the fat men are going to coddled, and it's somewhat anonymous, so fat ugly men can take potshots at whatever they like from behind their computer screens.

Edited for readability.

On a serious note:

Men are men. Women are women. Men and women are not the same. Every man is not the same as all other men. Every women is not the same as all other women.

Are looks more important to most men than to most women? Probably.

Does not finding fat women attractive mean that a man hates women? No.

Do most men look for the same things in women that most women look for in men? Probably not.

Is this politically incorrect? Apparently.

Is it somehow morally wrong? No.

Do we have a responsibility to spend our lives nurturing the self-esteem of strangers? No.

Do we help them by encouraging them to think being obese is attractive? No.

Does having a good time by pointing out the faults in celebrities or women that have posted their pics on the Internet mean we hate women or that we call them names or otherwise treat them with disrespect in our daily lives? No.

It's the Internet people. Have fun. Try not to take it too seriously.




Good post. Also good post, Tennenbaum.

One thing I keep thinking about is that there's no doube a good chunk of the forum that doesn't share the same misogynistic views of women. You just don't hear them. They don't bother w/ the misogynistic threads, and they know it's beyond futile to try and get those who do to act more politely.

what the really funny thing about all this is, that women sit around and point out the flaws off other women, and they are waaay harsher than men about it (someone get peachy in here, she'll prove that in an instant).

Someone asked what a message board full of chicks would be like, and I can tell you, it would be exactly the same as this one. Instead of dorky dudes slamming chicks they could never get for being fat, it would be a bunch of catty bitches sitting around slamming women for looking how they themselves could never look.

I get a big kick when women make posts like OPs, they love to play the moral high ground on this subject. Ive lived in a house full of women and the [censored] that got talked about there about guys isnt any nicer than the [censored] that gets talked about around here.

This isnt a male female thing. Its a human thing, at least as far as american society goes

E-vagina, eh? I think you need a better term. E-penis is fine, because guys want to have huge penises (penii?). Do you really think chicks want larger vaginas?

Would e-clitty work? No... e-breasts? No...

Good lord, what's the female equivalent of an e-penis?

You think that people only make fun of women here? OOT is capable of brutally insulting anyone, and there are always plenty of people who think it's cool. Of course, when it is in response to a picture of a woman, it is going to be on the basis of looks, but it's not as if everyone here is friendly and happy and nice to everyone all the time and just turns into an [censored] when a pic of a girl appears.

Wow. Seriously, none of this was a personal attack on you, but you seemed to have veered off in that direction. I do speak my mind, when the situations warrant that. I am not some Fem-Nazi here to yell at these guys for posting that some chick has ugly titties. He thinks she has ugly titties, big [censored] whoop. If you dont want to read it, then dont read it. Because I dont take offense to some guy saying Kelly Clarkson is fat then I am stupid? Hence you proving my point that women are catty bitches.

I dont think I have ever really taken offense to anything said about a chick on this forum, or in real life for that matter. I tend to take the stuff written on here in stride and laugh because I just picture the poster of the comments as some skinny, pale, college kid who has only had sex w/ 1-2 girls.

I myself like to rate chicks in my own mind and on this site. I dont rate dudes on their monatary worth or by their looks for the most part. I tend to value intelligence and humor above all else. Fancy cars and paychecks are of no interest to me.

I just find that sometimes on here guys have crazy standards of what constitutes hot. Obviously, some thin, tan, big breasted woman is going to get a way better score for looks alone on a site like this. That doesnt mean that those are the only chicks these guys will bang (well, some of them anyway).

Everyone has different tastes on here. One dude will post a pic of his GF and a bunch of people post "I'd hit that" posts and others throw up in their mouths a little.

I think it's obsurd to take anything written on here personally. If you dont like what's being said and you cant laugh it off, stop reading it. It's mostly in jest and all BS anyway. And the people that are serious, well that's just their P.O.V. and I hope that they actually get those girls who meet their standards.




I know I'm late to the game with this, but this is my new favorite post and I want to pre-emptively apologize for stealing portions of it for future use.

tennenbaum - you should go back to making jokes about the

"pale, pasty faced 20 yr old whose only contact w/ a chick has been jerking off to his mom's jazzercise tapes" picking apart girls looks.

i really thought that character was a much needed addition to OOT.

while i get your point about not taking offense to these things and that it goes both ways - i know the OP is not the only one who has been affected by some of the comments towards women here. but i also know these things are never going to change or really matter, because people suck.

i'm not talking specifically about rating women, just that every once and awhile you feel a wave of rudeness towards women, and at some point it stops being funny. i can't blame the OP for venting.

either way, i'm kinda disappointed.

This isnt a male female thing. Its a human thing, at least as far as american society goes




Agreed.

The OP seems to be an intellectually dishonest post that doesn't examine the true root of this anger, blatantly disregarding the obvious factors at play here (that this is an anonymous internet message board; that it is primarily male; that everyone is superficial, and being asked to rate people in a superficial manner).

Phoenix:

Quote:

Everyone is insecure, but women in particular have an enormous weight on their shoulders to fit into the male's standard of attractiveness, even when she's smart enough to realize that it's BS. When guys are talking about how a woman is ugly or hot, they never realize how this affects the women in the room. It very strongly reinforces their pressure and insecurity, sometimes to very negative results.




This is true - however, while women are judged on this metric, men are judged on others. Not only does it goes both ways, but men judge men, women judge women. From my experience, women are far more judgemental of other women than men.

Personally I find most semi-attractive women walking around on the street more attractive than most porn stars, but I think the reason they're rating them 4.5 is that half the people are using a 10-point scale and half are using the obviously superior 3- or 4-point scales so it brings it down.

Exactly. It might hurt, but it's the truth.

I find many many different types of girls attractive. Fat girls, however, I have 0% attraction for.

Is life fair that way? No. Sometimes you have to learn how to deal with reality and make adjustments rather than dream about a fantasy world.

I swear most people decided whatever they would actually rate the woman and then subtract 2 points before posting it on OOT so nobody calls them gay.

I imagine the situation would be very much the same for a short man overhearing a bunch of women in a room saying something disparaging about a man's height. I think the main issue is most of the men on this board:

a) as discussed, are 20 year old, pasty and terrified of women (no offense guys, I was there, I'm just older now)

b) are on an anonymous message board which always brings out another level of candor/rancor/etc. than live or even phone communication

c) assume their audience is all male, which is 99.5% true


The only possible solution I see is if more women were to become more active in the forum. If there were some cool girl who posted here, that everyone liked and also knew was a little on the heavy side, the fat girl posts would go way way down. When I used to wait tables, I hated a giant table of all men or all women, the worst sides of both come out when they don't have the other sex to impress.

A few things. 1. The OP making a post like this is only going to exaserbate the problem instead of helping things. 2. A forum that is 99.5% women would be very similarly antimale. 3. The anonymous nature of an internet forum is going to exaggerate the the appearance of misogyny especially when the forum is mostly male and so large that people have to be provocative to get a reaction or be remembered.

I admire any woman who post here because God knows I wouldn't last long in a woman dominated forum. But to come in here and think that you are going to change things by whining is foolish.

Drawing infrences about intelligence from spelling/grammar (especially from a non-native speaker) = pretty retarded.

I don't think this is a right/wrong issue. It's just a matter of opinion.

Flx's post falls into the same catagory of posts as some of Jake's do: you're dealing with a group to which you have no meaningful connection and then getting confused/upset when you're not on the same page as they are.

There's a lot about OOT I wish was different, but it isn't changing and you can either shake your head, judge people and then move on and enjoy what you can or you're just going to find yourself not enjoying things.

The difference between short men and ugly women is that for women the pressure is coming from everywhere. Every magazine cover, every commercial, every movie, and from a young age they are brought up thinking that being attractive is their number one goal, because no one likes an ugly girl.

The other difference is that a 5'9 man is generally not going to have emotional problems because of his height because he's average, but an average looking girl is very likely to, a 6'4 guy isn't going cut himself because he's not Yao Ming, but the pretty girl who's not a beauty queen just might.

Like I said, guys don't understand the kind of pressure women are under.

One woman can make a difference. There's the Gloria Steinem angry feminist approach, or the Madonna approach of beating the men at their own game. Actually I think you need both. The carrot and the stick. So the boys can focus their hatred on one, but end up giving everything to "the cool chick" anyway. Sort of like Black Panthers/Martin Luther King Jr.; PLO/Hamas; etc. Rambling, but you get the point - flexduck is the stick - but w/o her no dialog at all.

Guys - I'm curious why the hate for ms. Duck? Would you make similiar crass comments in real life in the presence of a woman? I doubt it.

And how about speaking your mind? There are countless thoughts that pass through our heads every minute. Why express the negative thoughts that serve no other purpose than to demean a person you don't even care about? Isn't there something more positive you could say? It's very clear, based on the big discussion recently about reducing caca posts in OOT, that many us of us should practice a bit more self censorship. So even though I might see a picture of a stranger and think to myself "Gee, that's a fat dumb bitch", is there any useful purpose served in broadcasting this thought in cyberspace? I for one would gladly refrain from expressing these thoughts if it meant not alienating the few females who do post here.

And as for the argument of "even if I don't say it, I'll still believe it", listen to some Anthony Robbins motivational CDs.

girls certainly don't have things like commonly accepted "rating" scales, and it isn't an accepted reality amongst women that one needs to receive a certain rating on this scale to be eligible, regardless of things like personality or intelligence.




Um, have you ever met peachy? Seriously, you couldn't be more wrong on this point. She was far more critical than any guy in OOT.

Also, yes women do have scales. It's called the "trust fund" scale. With other women it's "who has the cocaine or weed" scale. With other women it's "who is the best athlete" scale. Women have scales that are often just as selfish and shallow as men, they are just far better at hiding it. Men normally don't care about hiding stuff like that. Why don't we care? Because we are *often* careless a$$holes looking for a tight pink hole to poke. Shady and scandalous money suckers is *often* left for bitches. I'm just glad things seem to change as people get older/wiser.

Please be aware that I am not saying you are even remotely related to the people you are hating on (male or female).

That being said I have no beef with you. I think you need a wake up call but I totally agree with you when you say certain people pretty much blow. But hey, we are in a no holds barred fight for the right to procreate with the best genetic specimen. That's life, get used to it.

If someone is better looking than me I'm not allowed to comment on their looks?? So Brad Pitt can go around calling people a tub of lard because he is good looking? I understand where you are coming from, and that it is a little childish, but it's a poker forum! I am actually surprised at how high brow some of the stuff on here is

Most things have already been said here. When we talk about womens looks we're indicating whether we do or do not want to have sex with them, it's not done with malice. I do want to point out something new though.

fslexduck,

You wonder why we didn't criticize/rate guys when they posted their fat pics. The reason is because we simply don't care. It's not some weird code to protect each other and tea down women. With rare exception, how a guy looks is of no consequence to us for reasons that should be obvious.

I feel like you percieve this overriding malice towards women/protection of men and therein lies the problem for you. In reality the reasons for the behavior you see are almost all pragmatic/practical. Granted, it's true that rarely someone will just gratiutously degrade women for no real purpose but they undoubtedly have their own issues don't you think?

Very well put. One of the things I like about OOT is that it brings alot of very different people together. It is a great resource for viewpoints, ideas and information that are interesting and valuable and a whole lot that isnt. I know that I have learned quite a bit from OOT, even if I am occasionally offended.

Sorry Duck if we offended you.

You know what the real problem is? Its that there are too many fat women in this world. We should round them up and put them on a fat farm. The farm isn't for them to lose weight because that would allow them to procreate and create fat little babies. The farm will be a "Hunt the fatty" farm and people can buy tickets to shoot fat chicks. That way only skinny chick genes will be left over. The fat chicks will die for a good cause. Their lives won't be wasted, they can be turned into bars of soap. That way we can save the real "whales".

Boris - if the OP were simply about asking for a greater level of civility when rating women's looks, that's fair and clearly not flame worthy. But this is being tied into a greater social question of how this type of discourse is "promulgating misogyny". There's some truth in that, but the argument hasn't been made well. That's where the flaming happened.

Duck- I hardly ever even post in the type of threads you are mentioning let alone join in and I have always enjoyed your strat posts as well as a few and far between nuggets here in OOT. With this said, I am surprised someone as smart as you is bothered so much by immaturity and nerdom. I "can" understand how the constant nits and outrageous levels of reality could be tiresome but to irk you enough to argue and post about it seems weird to me. Just realize that most around have no clue and when you get upset you are getting upset at something that was written by some yay-hoo, I mean you have written in this thread about the type of people that are commenting on these women so if you know this then no need to let it bother you. Take care.

I dont think I have ever really taken offense to anything said about a chick on this forum, or in real life for that matter. I tend to take the stuff written on here in stride and laugh because I just picture the poster of the comments as some skinny, pale, college kid who has only had sex w/ 1-2 girls.

I myself like to rate chicks in my own mind and on this site. I dont rate dudes on their monatary worth or by their looks for the most part. I tend to value intelligence and humor above all else. Fancy cars and paychecks are of no interest to me.

I just find that sometimes on here guys have crazy standards of what constitutes hot. Obviously, some thin, tan, big breasted woman is going to get a way better score for looks alone on a site like this. That doesnt mean that those are the only chicks these guys will bang (well, some of them anyway).

Everyone has different tastes on here. One dude will post a pic of his GF and a bunch of people post "I'd hit that" posts and others throw up in their mouths a little.

I think it's obsurd to take anything written on here personally. If you dont like what's being said and you cant laugh it off, stop reading it. It's mostly in jest and all BS anyway. And the people that are serious, well that's just their P.O.V. and I hope that they actually get those girls who meet their standards.




100% with you on this.

Guys - I'm curious why the hate for ms. Duck? Would you make similiar crass comments in real life in the presence of a woman? I doubt it.

And how about speaking your mind? There are countless thoughts that pass through our heads every minute. Why express the negative thoughts that serve no other purpose than to demean a person you don't even care about? Isn't there something more positive you could say? It's very clear, based on the big discussion recently about reducing caca posts in OOT, that many us of us should practice a bit more self censorship. So even though I might see a picture of a stranger and think to myself "Gee, that's a fat dumb bitch", is there any useful purpose served in broadcasting this thought in cyberspace? I for one would gladly refrain from expressing these thoughts if it meant not alienating the few females who do post here.

And as for the argument of "even if I don't say it, I'll still believe it", listen to some Anthony Robbins motivational CDs.




This is really what it's about. Talking about "political correctness" is just so much nonsense. At no point has fslexduck or anyone who thinks she has a point said anything about not admiring beauty. "Physical attractiveness is important to men." No $hit. No one is suggesting that this could change or that it should if it was possible. It's that tearing someone apart because you can is a lame hurtful thing to do. Regardless of whether some women are pettty little bitches as well. And yes, relentlessly judging people on the most superficial grounds in a "ha ha I'm sort of kidding but really not" kind of way does hurt them and leads to them being treated worse in contexts outside of those conversations.

But this is a hopeless effort. Anonymous internet, superficiality is easier to express, the one upmanship inherent in poker...

fs and others,

One thing that I think is important to note that sometimes gets missed in such posts is that the context in which some of these posts get made is often important.

There have been countless times when guys post pics of their gf who does not look like a model, but guys are generally pretty respectful of and sincerely complimentary towards the person as a REAL-LIFE GIRL. The same thing holds for when female posters like gorie post their pics here. Yes, gorie/katy/duck/whoever would get a very different response if their pics were posted as "HOW HOT IS THIS MODEL" as opposed to "HOW CUTE IS THIS COOL REAL-LIFE CHICK."

Of course there's plenty of misogyny from time to time on this forum. However, I think the level to which it occurs and the seriousness of the offending posts is often overstated in threads like this.

I am going to post on this in TQZ so the other riff raff in this thread do not disturb us and allow for undisturbed, high level, intelligent discourse on this topic.

the thing is that there are so many women who would look good if they just lost some damn weight. I go to the mall for lunch and probably see 100 women who could at least move themselves from a 5 to a 7 - maybe even an 8, if they just lost 20 pounds, found a hairstyle, and used some makeup.

there you have it women, print out this post and study it.

Not knowing firsthand how men do or do not have it, I can't really say whether Dominic is right or not. I would assume that Dominic likewise does not have firsthand experience of being female, although in these days of sex-reassignment surgery, well, who knows....However, from my firsthand experience of being a woman and from observation of men, I can say that I personally would choose to be female, if I ever had a choice. My principal reason for making that choice is not that one sex or the other has it "better" (it seems to me that on the whole just being human pretty much sucks), but because men are biologically precluded from what I have found to be the most profound experience of life--pregnancy and childbirth.

Obviously there are cultures in the world in which women are severely repressed (an example would be Saudi Arabia),and if I had lived my life in one of those cultures, I would likely not choose to be female.

But in the cultures with which I am familiar (the US and northwestern Europe), I would say that from my POV the combination of nature and culture gives being female the edge.

I don't know if there's a war of the sexes going on here, I'm just pointing out one specific way in which a lot of Western women have it particularly rough, in the context of the thread at hand. I really don't know how such a blanket statement could come close to being accurate, but I really don't have an opinion on who has it hardest.

By the way, we can (and do) give the proverbial "boo-fricken-hoo" to a lot of things. I don't think it really says anything except "I don't care." But a lot of us do care, in this case, when it's our daughters or sisters or girlfriends. I don't know where I'm going with this, except to say that maybe we shouldn't just brush aside these issues when they come up?

Edit: Dammit, I responded to something that was intended to be obvioulsy incendiary. Disregard this post!

It was hardly incendiary. It's something people have wondered about in one way or another for as long as there are written records--and doubtless for longer than that. As in the story of Tiresias when Zeus and Hera argue about who has a better sex life, men or women. Tiresias who experienced life from both perspectives sided with Zeus who claimed that women have more sexual pleasure than men. In fact, women's greater capacity for sexual pleasure is one of the reasons that I would prefer to be female if I were given a choice. Admittedly many women do not fulfill their sexual promise, but that has never been one of my problems.

I don't know whether having the capacity for a better sex life makes women's lives easier (the way you framed your assertion, Dominic), but it certainly contributes to making being a woman preferable IMO. YMMV of course.

great, now I'm going to have to be bummed over women enjoying sex like I can't now!

Seriously, if I had the choice...I couldn't imagine not being a man. But obviously I don't have any other frame of reference, do I?

The OP reeks of low self esteem.

Who cares what a bunch of interent losers say on some message board, if it offends you that much you must have problems with yourself and think people are judging you.

stinkypete (aka twigboy):

Although it's hard to see from that angle, that girl does not look at all fat to me. And she has ginormous boobies. Well done, Met.

Did he not put his penis inside her? If not, that's too bad.

This thread is entirely to long to get into, so I won't. My opinion is simple: I spend my entire day fighting urges to say certain things because of my job, when I come home I love venting, and I love venting with OOT. Also, this is just not a place for women, and if a woman has a real problem with that, oh well. We've managed to beat the only women that have proven actually willing to participate in discussion into submission. Mslif, Peachy, and I forgot the other one. All pretty much silent, making some random appearances. You're a lesbian, and that's important to remember, because its just not the same. So we've pretty much killed all female influence on this board. Natural Selection homie. When I really think about it, I could give a [censored] less.

i have constantly refuted the point that i am offended by what is said. all i said was i believe, and still do believe, that it propogates a culture of misogyny. however, people that are offended are not necessarily displaying low self-esteem just because something offends them. that is a classic defense that people use when they can't man up to something insensitive they have done.

i find it childish that you feel the need to personally attack me and my "low self-esteem" just because i point out every time you post in a thread and identify yourself as a racist, homophobic, misogynist, classist fool. I was wondering when you'd get to this one.

The few female posters on this board add some pretty decent insight and value to many topics around. If the women stopped posting we would lose a very valuable side of many debates and arguments, just as is life.

I don't know if you spent your whole life chained to the street corner of Haight Ashbury or locked away in the basement of a womens studies building at some Ivy league school, but in the real world nobody gives a damn about your namby pamby "feelings", politically correct non-sense, or grand social views.

Likewise nobody really gives a damn if a few chubby girls cry at night because they aren't cheerleaders.

People concern themselves with the day to day deatils of their existence, IE their job, their money, their girlfriend, what am I going to do Saturday night, etc.

You seem completely out of touch with the "real" world and have your head so far up your ass (probably fat) that you feel the need to DIVE INTO A SWIMMING POOL AND THEN COMPLAIN ABOUT GETTING WET.

Welcome to the real world. Honestly, what do you expect from a bunch of mostly 20-30 year old males? This isn't politically correct lesbo-land.




If this were the real world, why would you all fight so hard to keep it? Why would the criticisms of Ms. Duck, myself and others be so threatening to you?

The "real world" is no longer the boys club. You come to OOT because it's safe to act the way you do. It's not safe elsewhere. You pull this [censored] somewhere else and you get fired/divorced/spit on/sued/punched/kicked out of the club/suspended...

So, don't give me that crap that this is the "real world." It's not.

I don't find you threatening at all. Just annoying. Everything else in this post is spot on, Elaine.

Your name is hard to spell. And I assume hyphenated status b/c that is the scenario I find most amusing.

There is a big difference between

"I really want to think about and discuss the deeper things of life."

and

"I really want to think about and discuss the deepr things of life... AND THEN FORCE EVERYONE WHO DOESN'T TO SEE THE WORLD IN EXACTLY THE SAME WAY BECAUSE NOW I'M A BETTER PERSON AND I'LL JUDGE THEM IF THEY DON'T."

Also, yes women do have scales. It's called the "trust fund" scale. With other women it's "who has the cocaine or weed" scale. With other women it's "who is the best athlete" scale.




You're right. I used a "will be a good husband and father" scale and the "genius IQ - will 'get me'" scale as well as the "funny as hell" scale.
