Unsexy, Unkind, Uncalled for.





Maxim, that worthy magazine of tits and ass has formed a unsexiest woman alive list and nominated Sarah Jessica Parker as number one.
Parker, an actress wife and mother, has this to say about it.

"Do I have big fake boobs, Botox and big lips? No.

"Do I fit some ideals and standards of some men writing in a men's magazine? Maybe not.

"Am I really the unsexiest women in the world? Wow!It's kind of shocking when men...

"It's so brutal in a way, so filled with rage and anger.

"It upset him (Broderick), because it has to do with his judgement too. It's condemnation, it's insane. What can I do?

"I guess you can't please all people."

Not only can you not please all the people, why the fuck should you have to please anyone you don't know and will never meet?
I would just love to see the staff of Maxim, I would love to see candid photos of every single one of them, but especially the feature's editor, he must be an Adonis, a flawless specimen of perfection.
SJP is not everyone's idea of a great beauty, but she appears to be a hardworking, quirky woman of great style. I've never met her so I couldn't tell you whether she is was sexy or not, but then I suspect Maxim staff haven't met her either. Sexy is not just a look. I have met deeply beautiful people with all the personality of a dock leaf, not sexy. Sexy is not just abut image, it's a combination of thing, looks, humour, personality, sultriness, a host of factors that culminates in causing desire. It's is not down to just looks, it is not down to just image.
But all this aside, creating a fucking list and naming a woman 'unsexiest alive' is the most juvenile pathetic heartless piece of peat bog journalism ever. it's designed to hurt, it's designed to sneer, it's designed to be offensive. And that, chumlies is a reflection of a crowd of deeply unsexy fuck wits.
For shame Maxim. What a bunch of jerky jerkwards you have shown yourselves to be. Grow up.

Have Maxim readers never heard of Mary Harney?

Completely agree FMC, its an awful way to try and sell magazines and a disgusting mindset, but then again, they're hardly known for their balanced and insightful 'journalism'.
Its a magazine for fellas who are too embarrassed to buy playboy.

That is really awful. People have no morals or compassion when it comes to money, the heartless bastards. You can laugh it off and try gallantly to look like the bigger person but that has to hurt. I wonder what the editors look like. And aren’t they the same people who got in trouble for giving the Black Crowes a bad album review without actually listening to the album?

10:19 a.m.

...or Bibi Baskin?

Agree with both of ye. Why would SJP (or anybody) pay any heed to that kind of rubbish - Maxim is read by imbeciles who think sexiness is defined by legs, tits and ass.

Of course aesthetics have something to do with what men and women find sexy, but I'm sure for most reasonable, mature people intelligence, sense of humour and general personality are more important.

Personally, a sense of humour and a sense of fun are most important to me.

Physically speaking, T&A will never have the same effect as a woman's bare back

There, my fetish has been outed!

They deserve a good swink lopping. I can imagine them tee-heeing as they put the list together, underbrained wannabe teens. sad.

Just at the bottom of the spine, where the bum meets the back and some women have 2 wee dimples, BA? Or is it more towards the curve of the shoulders and neck?

Just curious...

10:42 a.m.  
OpenID bendersbetterbrother said...

I haven't seen the article but perhaps they did mean unsexy in more than just a physical way.
It must be US Maxim from the contenders making up most of that top 5 but surely Amy or Britney should be ding-donging it out for the no.1 spot.
If it were a UK list Amy would be pushed into a runner-up spot by Kerry Katona or Jodie Marsh.

May I remind you Mr Sheepy and Mr BA it is Holy Thursday. So less of it gentlemen. Tut tut.

Poor Sarah she should sue them for emotional trauma, give them a tastes of their own medicine.

I'm an equal opportunities back lover sheepworrier.

Alls I know is that I would be far more appreciative of a dress with a low back (or backless!) than one with a plunging neckline.

Anonymous Babs said...

I've always wanted those dimples but alas it's not to be, I love them! And men have them too.
What kind of gobshites are they to think that an article like that is going to do anyone any good, it was meant to hurt, and why would anyone want to hurt her, she has done nothing only make me envy her for her lovely shoes and bags!

Anonymous Pinkie said...

I dont think SJP is very good looking, but I still agree with the moral of what you said FMC -- she is most definitely not the unsexiest woman alive. And like sheepworrier pointed out, eh Mary Harney? Heeeeellloooo ? Surely much more unsexy than SJP.

Do we reckon Mary Harney has dimples in her back?

Just asking.

Anonymous The Bad Ambassador said...

I don't know about back dimples, but I bet each time you see her outside on Six-One news or addressing a Nurses Conference, she is wearing suspenders and a peep-hole bra underneath the power suit.

Hey there, everybody always says so mean things about Mary Harney's looks, I feel sorry for her. You're being as bad as the Maxim lot. Why not be nice today? :)

12:12 p.m.  
Blogger gimme a minute said...

I agree Eva, cheap shots abounding. I just can't afford the expensive ones.

But Harney is evil incarnate and therefore a much more valid target than the relative innocent that is SJP.

Blogger Medbh said...

If magazines refrained from saying anything about women's bodies and appearances the entire industry would collapse. I felt sad for her when I saw the list but then even more so when I read her response, which was to be concerned about how it reflected on her husband's taste or choice.
You know, because it's all about men afterall. Yack.

FMC, I presume Holy Thursday is what the Thursday before Easter is called?
Not that I knew that. English is not my mother tongue and I'm not religious either so to me it's just a normal Thursday.
Wow, three Thursdays -now four - in this comment!
Oh, I'll throw in a few more for good measure:
Thursday, Thursday, Thursday.
Today is Thursday.

Eva: thats horrible, horrible news.

Blogger Andraste said...

All Thursdays are holy, but only after 5PM, because they hold the sweet promise of Friday.

As to SJP - I always thought she had a rather horsey face and too big a nose to be really "pretty" but sexiness has a lot more to do with brains and attitude. Therefore, she's a hell of a lot sexier than a LOT of the so-called gorgeous women in the biz. I can't think of anything LESS sexy than Pamela Anderson - she's all plastic, and stupidity and bad taste. Yuck.

Ah! Sheepie, that explains so much. I was worried there for a while. I thought there were all manner of holy days about the palce I knew nothing about.

Anonymous Sam, Problemchildbride said...

The idea that there's only one kind of sexy is ludicrous. I can get turned on by a nice hairy forearm. I've fancied men with wide shoulders, narrow shoulders, big noses, little noses, overweight and underweight. People who think its all about Pam Anderson or Brad Pitt have such little inderstanding of real human beings it's pitiable.

Naming people that a half dozen nasty men deem unsexy is plain vicious. They need punching hard and fast and low.

I just Googled Sean Pertwee, then ogled him, and now I'm left with no -gle verbs to describe what I'd like to do to him. None that I'm willing to write out loud, anyway.

As for SJP, I reckon those lists are just published by wannabes who never willbes.I think, in order to publish those lists, there should a page of photos of the people who decided them. Then we could have a hoot. I do agree about Medbh said about what she said about her husband. That's creepy.

LK Medbh was bang on, if that was me I'd be pissed about the insult, I wouldn't be worry a damn about the paramour's sensibilities. Either way, it was still a shitty thing of Maxim to do, but by all accounts they are a bunch of middle-aged sk8tor wanaabes.

You have unmasked me as so desperately fucking uncool that I may as well just pull on my granny knickers and my mom pants now, and join a lawn bowling league.

I didn't have the first clue what in hell that last comment was about. I googled "meatloaf brings the boys to the yard" and eventually got to Kellis and her milkshakes, having completely missed the Kellis you wrote there in plain view.

Then I found it in the urban dictionary

Then I had to google Peter Griffen.

I would kill myself but i would probably do it in a manner that was 10 years out of date.

Dear God, what has happened to me? I know nothing. I am so depressingly unwith-it.
