  1. I was reading a discussion thread on the "movie" Gigli, and was inclined to make the following comments:

    Take 40% of all women the same age as these supermodels, put them through the same makeup, professional-greasing, airbrushing techniques, and you people will be saying the exact same things {Oogling about how sexy they are} about every one of them. Guaranteed.

    There's nothing special or different about these celebrities, other than the fact that they're celebrities and have been given a lot of airtime!

    Pretty faces like Jennifer Lopez probably account for 10-15% of the world's population. I don't see what the big deal is. I think it's totally irrational to pretend that there's anything special about these female celebrities, when it's only because they've been arbitrarily selected to bo put through beautification techniques, and placed on a pedestal.

      You know, you have a point there, Sephiroth. The danger with such things is that they are socially acceptable. While very few people would say that somebody like Marilyn Manson has a positive influence on kids, nobody ever speaks out against the media as a whole, which projects the idea that looks are everything and brainwashes girls into thinking that popularity and hanging with the "right" crowd are important. This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend of mine. She told me about how one time in her English class, everybody was talking about the whole Cinderella finding-prince-charming thing. She was shocked that every girl in that class was obsessed with the idea of some handsome, powerful stranger coming along and carrying them off to go get married and becoming a princess or something like that. It sickens me to think that this is what our culture teaches girls that this is what they should aspire to.

      Yeah, it's totally pointless and pathetic. Catering to the brainwashed masses, I say. (just like soaps and reality tv)

      Only it's all about D**** B****** and his fucked up wife nowadays, even though he's not here anymore!


      Someone should resurrect The Day Today (the spoof news show) and really take the piss out of these "people". The Heretic's headline (eating razor blades) would be a start...

      yea it is dumb but what i find far worse and more deranged is the propaganda we feed children and teens, mainly young girls. magazines like seventeen and YM and such. these tell girls to look only at looks and fasshion. I mean girls look for guys at clubs and bars, which is a very bad idea. you only find a certian type of person at those places and they aint good. we place incorrect values on children without thinking about it.

      Perfectly true. Boys are taught that being 'hard' is the only thing that matters and girls are taught that sex is the only thing that matters. No wonder there are so many teenage parents, single parent families and couples or families (who met in a club or bar) with one parent in prison, who are constantly living in poverty and producing the next generation of complete morons to follow in their footsteps.

      And the silly thing is that all these female models in these mags are just ordinary people who happen to be in the limelight. Go to any uni and you'll find tons of good-looking lasses wherever you go. And these manufactured celebs (ie. BB, Popstars/Idol etc.) are just members of the public who followed the propaganda faithfully through their teens and have massive heads. (which will only seek to enhance the propaganda further as more and more teens want to be on these tv shows)
