“Not someone like that”

I’m a bit hesitant to post this because the exchange started in a different venue where I’d rather not create trouble for the moderators–especially since technically I’m still one of them.

So, if I may, let’s keep whatever discussion ensues over here, please. With that said…

This is what happened: remember how I posted that I’m in love with this video? Well, there’s a thread in the music area of that other forum devoted to all things Adele.

The last comment in there as of right now, from Dan, is this:

Can this guy (or anyone) be honestly surprised about people piling on someone over something that cannot be changed? Haven’t women particularly been often criticized, mocked, ridiculed, ogled, and even shunned for things that they cannot change?

Often pretty women are consistently considered stupid–because they are pretty. Women who are ‘built’ are often viewed suspiciously, as if having a figure automatically made them whores.
