I'll Remember...2007

Maxim’s 5 Unsexiest Women

1 – Sarah Jessica Parker
2 – Amy Winehouse
3 – Sandra Oh
4 – Madonna

"After building a personal fortune on Top 40 pornography, Madonna traded pioneering sexuality for, like other old Jewish women, self-righteous bellyaching and rapid postnuptial deterioration. Combine a Paris Hilton-like pet accessorizing fetish only for dirt-poor foreign babies with a mug that looks Euro-sealed to her skull, and you´ve got Willem Dafoe with hot flashes."

5 – Britney Spears


How can Maxim be so stupid to create such a list? I mean, first young girl fans are pressured into being skinny and beautiful and, as we all know, the fashion industry has had horrible effects on them. Now, some of the women these young girls look up to are being called ugly! What kind of message is being sent out to girls?

If your going to put Madonna on a list such as this you may as well include Betty White along with every other actor or performer past their prime. When making a list of the unsexiest women, women who are legitamately ugly (meaning they were ugly when they were young and they will remain that way) should be the only people added to that list.  Madonna has a quality about her, especially in the 80's and 90's that made her a force to be reckoned with, giving her an air of sexiness.  Madonna shouldnt be on there simply because she looks great for her age the fact that her body is so well toned and she can perform with a decent level of athleticism is amazing. Not to mention she was considered beautiful during her “golden years”, she has been hit hard by time she can’t help and she wasnt born ugly.

While I agree that this is an unnecessary list and just plain stupid, I think it should have been labels something different because I just checked it out and the reason they gave for people being on this list were not because of physical appearance but it was for a lot of personal and behavioral reasons that some I agree with and that does determine overall sexuality.

This was not about looks more than it was about attitudes, it could have been listed as something different though, like annoying personalities.

But then again this is Maxim, there is so much usefull reading out there do we really care what Maxim thinks.  I give the writers of the Maxim article the SEXIST IDIOTS AWARD.


What do you think of Maxim's list?
