This shall serve as an addendum to my earlier post Ask Men?
I got to thinking about just how bad that list was and what the criteria could have possibly been…
According to http://www.prweb.com, “The 13th edition of the Top 99 poll called on readers to elect women who most closely match their ideals, voting on more than just sex appeal and taking into account other criteria such as character, talent and potential for 2014.”
OK. I’ll bite… In under 100 words I would like you to describe Miley Cyrus’ character, talent and potential for 2014… I’m out.
But she came in 99th, you say. That’s scraping the bottom of the barrel, you say. Okay, let’s move up the list… Remember to keep your eye on the criteria…
POTENTIAL FOR 2014
#25 – Adele Exarchopoulos who has more French titles then American titles to her credit!
#24 – Elizabeth Olsen who’s best known for being Mary-Kate and Ashley’s younger sister.
#13 – Cara Delevingne who has a track on Grand Theft Auto V’s Radio DJ Non Stop Pop FM, and that’s it!
#9 – Margot Robbie who is best known for playing Jane in the new Tarzan. (Unreleased at the time of writing)
#3 – Emily Ratajkowski who’s biggest achievement is the notorious “Blurred Lines” music video and stripping completely naked for Sports Illustrated.
POTENTIAL FOR 2014
You want to argue about talent and potential for 2014 on a couple of these names, I’ll listen to your line of reasoning. Maybe you know something I don’t know. Just know that if talent was a factor, Miley Cyrus wouldn’t make the list. If her potential for 2014 and ideals earn her a spot on the list, the future is a very dark place for young women worldwide. Shall we take a look at her character? This chick collects bad press the way the underside of a high school desk collects wads of gently used Watermelon Bubblicious. Miley Cyrus couldn’t buy her way onto this list using the criteria Ask Men laid out for their voters.
QUICK DISCLAIMER : Character is important. It’s what’s on the inside that counts. I know this. A woman’s worth, or lack thereof, should NEVER be based solely on her apparent sex appeal, or lack thereof.
However, when you ask over a million people to vote online for a list of the 99 most attractive women on the face of the planet, do you think anybody cares whether she can sing or not? Do you think the average guy voting on an online poll like this cares if she’s an Oscar winning actress? THEY’RE GUYS!!! They’re going to scan through a bunch of snapshots (more like mugshots in some cases) and vote on the PRETTIEST girl they see. EVERY TIME.
Hate me if you want. But that’s life.
PS. Disregarding ideals, talent, character and potential for 2014, the only thing left is sex appeal. Which makes this wretched list that much more disappointing!
My name is Jonathan Turrell, and that’s just my two cents.
