Maybe including acting and talent to the mix would be better, Shovel.

Well, that is what the actual tournament was going to be. Have talent and acting also thrown in there. I just was arguing with a friend on if Jen or Emma was hotter and wanted your guy's opinions. Also is anyone going to post celebrities for the thread or not?

Also, I could do a guy one too. Just most of us are guys...

The answer is Captain Crunch.

Also, I do not remember who Jennifer Lawrence is, and you got Hermione's name wrong.

I have not seen any Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Watson movies, much less know who they are. But I don't want to skip a vote so I'll just give Jen a vote because she has no votes so far.

How about Angelina Jolie? Or Scarlette Johanson(possibly spelled her last name wrong.)

They have only themselves and the media to blame. If they wish to not be objectified then they can clean up their act so to speak.

This is utterly preposterous. I suppose it is also a woman's fault if she gets sexually harassed too? The blame for objectification lies in the hands of the objectifier.

it says general attractiveness

This makes it no better. Judging "who is better" based on attractiveness, physical or otherwise, is never appropriate. As I said before, this thread is a vehicle for objectification.

Do I think that daleks's thread is wrong? No.

In the way it was expressed in the OP, it most certainly is wrong.

I just was arguing with a friend on if Jen or Emma was hotter and wanted your guy's opinions.

Do you not see that this is the problem?

I've haven't seen any of their movies. But same vote as before because I've read the Hunger Games but not the Harry Potter books.

It isn't like I am saying that women are just objects. What is wrong with admiring their beauty?

Admiring their beauty is one thing, reducing them to appearance and forming a competition around it is another. You weren't just admiring their beauty, and if you believe you were you need to look a little deeper.

What part of the actual tournament would not be just looks but also personality, talent, etc. And it was just a friendly debate between me and my friend. Can we just move on with life now?

I don't see what's wrong with this, but it's dead. Just face it.
