  •  Not to criticize but there is a ton of wrong with (7+ / 0-)

    with this woman and what she is saying and advocating for and supporting without referring to her looks.

    I just get a bit upset when a woman's looks are part of the topic instead of the content of what she is standing for. I do not see that with men we disagree with.

    •  When men or women (0+ / 0-)

      have augmented their looks as an outward extension of a repugnant personality, it brings a certain insult with it into a superficial physical realm. It's difficult not to notice or comment on what they're trying so hard for you to notice. Conspicuous, expensive physical masks are indicative of the self importance of the wearer.

    •  Then you are not looking. (0+ / 0-)

      Or you are not as sensitive about those comments when they are aimed at men.  See today's diaries re the SuperPac guy.  There were several comments about his appearance.  There are always comments about Boehner (Orange man?).  How many comments today about Rmoney's hair?? It's not true that men's looks/appearances do not get the same critical comments.  

      Just saying ... not approving of those comments for either gender.

      •  I am probably more sensitive to it because it (0+ / 0-)

        seems to always happen when talking about women and sometimes happen when discussing men.
