    It was fine at first but now it's become like a phenomenon on here to rate people according to how good looking they are.

    Insult me all you want but that thread breeds insecurities and is...annoying.

    They've been complaining for 3 years now....nothing's changed....nothing will change. It's always the same cycle:

    - Somebody brings back a 3 years old G.A.Y thread
    - New members notice it and now they are full of ideas for more G.A.Y threads
    - Too many G.A.Y threads
    - Somebody complains about the too many G.A.Y threads
    - Some others feel like they should follow this complain
    - Too many active threads complaining about the G.A.Y threads.
    - Those who love G.A.Y threads notice that the threads complaining about it are actually out numbering the G.A.Y threads themselves.
    - The Big Bang of the G.A.Y threads comes to existence.
    - Those complaining realize there's no point.
    - The creators of G.A.Y face a topic crisis after the Big Bang, they run out of ideas for G.A.Y threads
    - Everything goes back to normal.
    - Repeat

    I'm not against Gay threads in general but that thread particularly irks me -- I have never found a thread annoying apart from that one. It almost feels as if the people who continually participate in that thread are proud to support a quality that is so superficial and insubstantial. We are taught that 'looks aren't everything' but on here we know no shame.

    It's not only on here -- some of my friends have asked me to rate the looks of other people including my own friends.

    I use to think the same thing but those threads are the ones where everyone can chime in w/ little to no thought. You can scroll dwn for what seems like forever and not find a flame war! With so many threads that lead to words of mass destruction, I welcome the guy above you as a pause and hopefully some sexy pics will be attachedicon_biggrin.gif

    Would you be complaining if everyone was rating you a "10"?

    No, in all honesty, I wouldn't be complaining initially because my ego would be too satisfied. However once that thrill wears off I would hope that I would have the sense to recognize what shallowness the thread represents.

    I used to take everything oh-so-seriously and finally learned that sometimes a little shallow, like a mindless juicy beach read, is good for the soul. Almost everyone can use some validation - my occasional foray into G.A.Y. (Guy Above You) threads is my version of the mall scene from "Soapdish." It should be a harmless group activity as long as those that participate do so with the expectation of being commented upon, and they're a lot more forgiving than some other hot lists I can think of!

    I don't know what the big deal is. As long as I think I'm the hottest mother fucker on this site, that's all that matters. icon_razz.gif

    If you dont like it, then dont open it and look at it. Plain and simple. I dont want to sound like a bitch but yeah...................... Personally I wouldnt post anything in those kind of things since I would feel bad if I rated someone low and they get more insecure about themselves and shit. Also, I feel like I will get destroyed alive in that topic. HAHAHA

    It's not that. It's just seeing the thread always at the top of the screen every time I log in and recognizing what a trend it has become -- that's the annoying part.

    Also I feel that it encourages guys to care about what other people think about them. Say if you get a 10 you may internalize that and feel 'hot'. However when you come to get a 6 by someone else it would bruise your ego hence you would seek for more validation and re-assurance...making you insecure or amplifying your existing insecurities. Besides looks are subjective anyway: one guy could think I'm a 10 but then another would say I'm a 0.

    Additionally I feel it's important not to absorb what people say on there too much. It could be that you're 'good looking' but someone just wants to put you down, or that you get rated highly purely because they don't want to upset you.

    I find it interesting how there are people here who don't show faces (only bodies) and they get a 10. If we all worked out in the gym 6 times a week (purely for looking good) would we all be 10's then? Just a thought.

    Oh I get it now! Oops blond moment. I thought you said 'they are fucking annoying but the guys like them, so let the kids play with it until dark'. And I was like 'play with what??' Haha.

    Nah, now that I've expressed my initial annoyance over the thread, it doesn't seem too annoying now. Who said a little rant doesn't do anyone good lol?

    Ok I accept and understand that now. I no longer have any annoyance of that thread and don't disaprove or judge the people who participate on there because it is their choice and I have no right to judge them like that.

    End of thread icon_razz.gif
