This thread is an example of misogyny. It immediately discounts any achievement in representing their country in favour of suggesting that they look awful and are thus worthless.
well we're genetically predisposed to prefer attractive, fertile women...just like women often look for athletic, healthy men who will be able to provide for their (future) children
often we men discount other achievements but thats often when we dont know the women well, like in the case of celebrities. we dont discredit powerful women most of the time we just feel intimidated by them because we like to be in control and honestly women love for a man to be in control but thats beside the point
