I think it's safe to say that you have no idea what the word stereotype means.

I think that's a given, peeing in the butt is his minimum compliment, like a "thumbs up".

or she might of gone lighter to be more mitizo looking, because sadly hollywood casting can still be biased about darker skinned VS lighter skin.

I agree, she looked prettier with tan, maybe at a certain age she stopped tanning to keep her skin looking younger.

My Spanish is terrible, but man oh man I did use to go out of my way back in the day before she came to hollywood to see her telenovela's.

as far as her looks(mostly refering to her face) go, I think she looks better when she is a bit darker. If you look at her earlier work she is a bit darker most of the time than she is now. I dont know if that is because she used to tan more back then, or if the makeup dept. was doing that on purpose to fufill some pre-concieved notions.

well, she was hot in he movie, her face looked really pretty, I agree she's not photogenic, but what bothers me are her proportions, she's extremely short and it shows, huge boobs don't help, she has short legs and it's just not well proportionate. I understand most men find her sexy because of her curves but to straight women she's overrated in the looks department. She's a good actress and a succesfull producer, looks good for 43, true, but I also understand why women call her an overrated midget.

LOL at Tarantino and his foot fetish, cute :)

Querida Salma, you have done well for your self, and held your own pretty well. Regardless whom you married, you have been in the telenovela/hollywood scene for a while, and it nice to see that one can behave properly and carry oneself with class and grace in such an environment where one going braless on the red carpet is a news. Una mujer bonita, fuerte y con clase, pero la mejor parte, latina!

You're saying that basically you can be rich if you have a sexy accent and big boobs. That is at least a generalization.

D55 seems to think that I have an issue with her when in fact it is with you. Interesting how that works, huh. But on a serious note, I've asked you this before and I will ask again: why do you always sound so angry with women?

moron_
moron_

See now if I wanted to address you directly, I would have done so just as I'm doing now. I'm sorry that you feel this is a personal attack, but not everything is about you. I'm not saying this to be indifferent, but given your history on this entry, I think that you will take to mean indifference and will be even more angrier for that.

moron_

We can continue this debate if you can do so without making ad hominem attacks. Otherwise, this debate will only dissolve into a hog wash of personal attacks. Your call. Personally, I could go on all day without resorting to personal attacks, but I think that you may have invested a little too much emotion into this to remain passive.

You're right that standard of deviation is typically applied to stats, but it basically means a measure of variance. In this case, the margins or variance for one group and another: normal people and celebrities. Saying that the phrase can only be used for one type of research, statistics, doesn't make your argument any more valid. You know what I mean, but you are choosing to nit pick at the phrase in order to make the claim that I'm stupid and therefore my claim is less valid. This is a fallacy and is akin to saying the word deduction can only be used in syllogistic logic and anyone who uses it differently is somehow stupid. Deduction also has a vernacular meaning and its connotations are such that it can be used in a different manner. The same can be said for a phrase like "standard of deviation". Knocking someone for using a word or phrase in a different manner doesn't make your argument any more valid than calling them stupid.

moron_

Again, I was actually addressing two people, but if you feel like this was supposed to be a personal attack then I'm not going to try to change your feelings. If you look back at some of the comments that Wiseblood has made, you will see that I have a serious problem with what he writes about women. As for what you write: I usually don't care enough to address it directly.

moron_

See now you're changing your argument. I never said I was in charge of people who are dismissing her. I did, however, say that you should be prepared to have that arrow turned back around if you're willing to dismiss her. You have still not addressed how this is invalid. Like I said, you have done this before in your arguments towards others who claim that Adriana is ugly or this or that. If you call a person ugly or stupid, then it is perfectly valid to ask, what do you look like or how smart are you? How is this invalid? You (2nd person) open up the doors to criticism and interrogation when you criticize another.

My original argument HAD a feminist bent. You were too busy being preoccupied with thinking that I was directing the argument towards you to notice it.

Nice try, but an ad hominem attack isn't going to let you win this one. You're telling me I can't use a certain phrase such as standard of deviation because, um, why exactly? Standard of deviation means just that: standard of deviation. Just because it connotes a certain class to you doesn't make it a less valid word to use.

You're asking me which men I'm directing my comment towards? Seriously? Here you go: Wiseblood and Player. One of them is a blatant and frequent misogynist and the other one reduced Salma's success down to nothing more than her looks and accent and is basically claiming that she's a gold digger. You figure which one is which.

Why can't I change my tone exactly? When I wrote my original statement, it was to people in general so I could be as rude as I wanted to. Now that I'm debating with you, I'm being polite. It's called manners.

oh, that's not to say that you were not shooting yourself before then but when someone uses terms such as normal range, standard deviation for beauty, he/she lacks some serious logic and really is trying to sound smart without knowing anything, and arguing with such a person is very frustrating and really pointless.

p.s. nice nickname; totally suits you haha

"Of course I'd bring regular people into the argument. They are the ones criticizing her."

first of all, no one has critized her looks on here except for me but when you wrote that post of yours, my comment had not even been posted. I posted 3.5 hours later! it seems like you've been meaning to bring regular people into this regardless!

"They are also the ones who expect her to look beyond her normal range (in this case, beyond the deviation of even celebrity mothers)."

LOL take that statistics class over. You cant have a normal range, standard deviation when it comes to beauty since it's subjective!!! Those are mathematical terms for a reason!

ok, so, i wont even bother with the rest since you pretty much shot yourself in the leg right there LOL

d55
d55

ok, what the hell, i ll do this one more time.

"My original argument was actually addressed more so to the men on this site because of the rampant misogyny that goes one here. They criticize these women who are pregnant or are older or sometimes both even though they themselves are an eyesore already, not to mention what they'll look like at 43."

That's utter BS because only one guy on here called her overrated, and it was wiseblood! The rest showered her with compliments!

"Salma looks good by any standard. You can say that she is overrated or not beautiful, but to dismiss her completely is ridiculous."

really? who has dismissed her on here? only i did, and now you get to be in charge of who people will dismiss? do you have some type of emotional attachment to her that you feel like everyone has to recognize her existence? what might be ridiculous to you is not so to me. Now what?

"These celebrity women are still women; they cannot remain perfect after undergoing rigorous changes to their bodies. The insistence for perfection is cruel, and it is a form of hatred against women, which is to say that the underlying message from these people is that any woman who is not perfect deserves contempt and ridicule. Obviously, this site is about the "looking" of hot women and so long as they remain hot, they have *some* worth. The moment they become a little less hot, their "value" disappears and they are denigrated and relegated to the shelf of "nothingness", that is, the entire spectrum of their subjectivity is reduced down to the fact that they are so-called "ugly" now."

Massive gibberish that has nothing to do with the argument.

"Salma is a mother, a producer, and a successful woman. It is uncalled for to dismiss her completely; she has plenty of worth."

says who? she is worthless to me because she is someone who has absolutely no impact on my life. Is she a mother for me? is she a producer for me? does her being successful or making money as a producer have any type of impact on my life whatsoever? NO! So i can dismiss her completely everyday.

"Thus, the crux of my argument is that if you (2nd person) can make such a claim and devalue someone, then it is fair to ask: what do you look like?"

My post said "overrated midget whore" meaning i am not a midget, and i am not in a position to be rated, let alone overrated. She is the celeb, so terms such as overrated/underrated given her success relative to her fame are terms that are perfectly fine to be used.

"Women's bodies are always read, and it's a lose-lose situation. It's time to turn this reading around."

Take your feminist crap elsewhere. The argument was not even about this!

d55
d55

oh my god, your argument is such utter BS now!

You're changing the direction of the argument by bringing in tons of BS!!!! perfection, value, nothingness, ugly, righteousness, blah blah.

Just shut up and accept that you are indeed a moron.

your comment was directed towards men? when no man on here said nothing bad about her looks?! In fact, nearly all of them were praising her! Cut the BS for fuck's sake. You got owned; sit on our ass.

Standard deviation? are you fucking kidding me? what is this? statistics class? are you trying to intimidate me by using words that you think are big? lmao you cant use concepts such as standard deviation for things that are subjective such as beauty, you stupid!

I just skimmed over your post and laughed lol because you're a funny one...you're one of those people that will just continue to argue just to save face. You try so hard to sound smart as if you're writing a scientific paper, all that fancy lingo and long sentences and such not fooling anyone. This is where a stupid person would say, "oh, wow, i cant understand what he's trying to say so i cant even argue at this point" in which case you would feel like you've won.

Look at your tone in your posts vs the one youve been using in order to win against me!

Stop trying to sound all deep and insightful...this argument was very simple to begin with where you got owned, and rocking your own comments to give the impression that your credible is not working, either.

14yrs since she filmed that. Trying to use film of her from '95 is not going to convince those who find her unsexy to think she is sexy today.

...but yeah stunning scene, I remember seeing it in the theather, and while packed the moment she entered the scene, I think the whole theather stopped breathing.

Anybody who has seen her scene in "From Dusk Til Dawn" and doesn't think she's hot has serious issues! That is the hottest thing i've ever scene in a regular movie.

Ok, maybe she's not as hot as she was back then since she has aged and given birth in the mean time, but she's still an attractive woman...especially for her age! And she is not photogenic. In movies, her face looks gorgeous, but in pictures it tends to look harsh, but all in all she is well above average looking.

Watch this and tell me she's not hot, silly kids:

*You did NOT address this standard of deviation

Aphrodite is a representation for perfection. I am not using her literally.

Of course I'd bring regular people into the argument. They are the ones criticizing her. They are also the ones who expect her to look beyond her normal range (in this case, beyond the deviation of even celebrity mothers). You did actually address this standard of deviation btw even though you addressed the fact that she has the ability to look good based on having money. Thus, you addressed the premise, but ignored the conclusion. If you (not you directly, but you 2nd person) criticize her and have a higher than thou attitude, then you should be prepared to have that arrow of blame turned right back around. I've seen you ask girls what they look like when they claim that Adriana is ugly. These girls are regular people, just like the people here who are criticizing Salma. Would it make sense if they based their argument on the claim that since they are regular people, you cannot criticize them? No. You've already shown by the fact that you continue to argue with them that this point is moot. Hence, the argument still stands.

"And that is why you can only compare regular 43 year olds to other REGULAR* 43 year olds!"

d55

"Who are we comparing these women to, Aphrodite?"

No one compared Salma Hayek to anyone; you're the one that started the comparison by bringing regular people into the argument.

"In all fairness, she is not going to be as hot as she was at 25 because she is passed her prime."

No one expects her to look as good as she did when she was 25. However, a 25 year old hot chick that you see at your school today will look like shit by the time she is 43 while this chick has all the money in the world to look her best GIVEN HER AGE. That IS the difference, and that's why comparing her to regular people is not fair. Her money allows her to have advantage over regular people. Do you not get that?

By the time she is 43, the regular hot girl will have wrinkles, bags under her eyes, droopy cheeks, a mouth that's beginning to sag, folds around her mouth and nose, sagging skin, greying hair (ok, she dyes it) that is damaged, saggy tits that she can only get fixed with plastic surgery, a gut that she got from giving birth, something she cant get rid of even if she exercises and needs to have tucked, etc.

"Salma is a 43 year old mother"

yeah, a mother with tons of nannies; a mother who doesnt have to get up in the middle of the night whenever the baby cries...a mother who most likely is only there just to play with and caress the baby. Regular women dont age for nothing after they give birth. In addition, some of those women work 9-5 with no sleep somedays. They come home, do the dishes, cook, clean, etc while this chick doesnt have to lift a finger!

"I said that I wanted to see what some of the Bastards on here would look like at 43 because mostly likely they'd fall short of their peers."

Yes, they would when their peers are filthy rich women who can afford to look their best with money and don't do shit! Having to memorize movie scriptures can't be that tiring! That's why you can only compare Salma Hayek to other celeb mothers! And that is why you can only compare regular 43 year olds to other 43 year olds!

moron_

You are correct in saying that there are separate margins by which celebrities fall in and regular people fall in; this is an argument about parameters. You also bring up fairness, and so your argument is premised on parameters and fairness. This is precisely the implication within my argument. Salma Hayek is a good-looking 43 year old mother, whether we compare her to regular people or celebrities. In all fairness, she is not going to be as hot as she was at 25 because she is passed her prime. Thus, to dismiss her is the same as saying that Adriana is not as good-looking as she was before her pregnancy. Well, she's pregnant, and Salma is a 43 year old mother. Who are we comparing these women to, Aphrodite? Hence, I said that I wanted to see what some of the Bastards on here would look like at 43 because mostly likely they'd fall short of their peers.
