We'll have to agree to disagree, here, mesachick, because I'm onboard as a fighter of this with Duckyface. As women have become more objectified in our society, our reaction has not been to diminish that, but to react with equal opportunity objectification. It doesn't make it right. Just like I don't think it's right that my 14 year old daughter went for a run on Friday and was followed by a group of teenage boys coming home from school who yelled comments at her. Boys being boys? I don't think so.Originally Posted by mesachick
If a group of guys talk about how hot someone is or how they'd love to do her in private, whatever. That's not what Reynold was saying here. He was saying Hope's entire value was based on her hotness. He was saying that every woman's entire value on the show was based on their hotness. None of them were hot enough, and simply dismissed by him. He was saying that unless they are f**kable, they have nothing to bring to the table. How would you like to work with a guy like that? You could be pretty darn sure he wouldn't be listening to you in the boardroom. It's such bad Survivor game play on the part of Reynold, I can't even believe it. It's a social game and a numbers game, and he's played it horribly.
If I was on Survivor, I'd be looking for people to ally with based on their game play, their trustworthiness, how intelligent they are, etc. I'm sure, based on his fandom, Cochran would be a quick choice of many people. And I'm pretty sure most people would not say he was of no value to them in the game because he wasn't doable. (Whether they find him doable or not).
