Ah, Beagle… as much as I love you, I’m gonna have to chime in here. I had this very conversation with Mr. Kitty earlier.
I caught the last half hour, as they were going from 7 to 3. And let me preface my comments with this: these women volunteered for this, and as such should have expected a certain level of… shall we say… humiliation. After all, what can you expect when you team up Hef with Fox? And for crying out loud… these women were not the most stable creatures in the world- going positively hysterical because you weren’t chosen to spread your legs for millions of people? ::sigh::
But in no way did they deserve Hef and the photographers trashing them on national television. A simple “nope, not her… nope, not what we’re looking for…” would have sufficed. But Jesus Tapdancing CHRIST, no woman- regardless of how much of an attention hound she is- deserves to have thousands of people hear the following…
“She’s a bit thick in the body…”
“It’s all about symmetry, and the lower half of her face simply isn’t as symmetrical as the top half…”
“You really have to work to find her good angle…”
“Her torso is too long…”
“Her legs aren’t long enough…”
and what had to be, with the possible exception of “She’s a bit thick in the body,” the most cruel thing they could have come up with…
“There’s nothing about her that makes her unique.”
I cringed during these snippets. Ugh. That was just too much.
And the girl who won… shouldn’t have. Guess I’ll be skipping the July centerfold.
