Why So Many Looks-Obssessed Threads?

WTF is this epidemic of copycat threads on players' looks?! Don't people get tired of wading in the muck at this shallow end of the cesspool of humanity? I can understand a catty comment or two once in a while related to a player's build, especially if that player's physique has an impact on her game (I've done that to Serena myself, so no claims to sainthood here). However, continually making numerous threads that poke fun at players' natural-born appearance, be they Serena, Venus, Jankovic, Henin, or anyone else, just to be mean or to try to be witty is beyond my understanding. What does all this have to do with tennis, particularly when the season is still on-going? You don't see these stupid types of threads on the menstennisforums much at all. Hmm, I wonder why.

Are you saying that men are better than women?

Of course not. He/she is right. Every time a woman does something, people have to bring their looks into it. With the men, people focus on talent, with women it has to be about their bra size, butt size, their face, etc.

If people are just poking fun of others, it's just to make them feel better the next time they look in the mirror. They wouldn't say it to the player's face.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.

Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.
