There's nothing about this video that was made for a man.

If you're male and you want to see what real, raw female spirit is, watch this video.

If you start labeling any single dancer, you completely missed the point.

Yay, finally equal opportunity in the fashion industry.  It's about time angry trannies got their chance to look ridiculous as well.

Quick, someone airbrush the dancers before some delicate aesthetic sensibilities get offended and label them as trannies...oh wait.

The biggest thing is the "mean" faces... I mean, I know there was a point here, but, I think they could have at least had a "neutral face" (which is generally what models have).

/IMO, a smile can make up to a 2-point change on a man's opinion of a woman. (ie... a smiling "5" can be seen as a non-smiling "7").

Ah ha, of course, why would they jinx themselves of a chance to increase men's opinion of them?

/facepalm

Great just great.  Show some ethnic none modeling industry standard models and of course they have to be angry.
 
2013-09-28 02:59:36 PM
Except it's missing the whole fact that models are chosen because clothes look the best on their bodies. The clothes look like shiat on these people and don't fit 75% of them.

A few days of press is not worth an entire campaign of clothing not selling, at least in my humble opinion.

That's awesome.  Not my reality, but definitely someone's.  My reality, if I'm honest, has a slightly lighter shade, but still... go girls!  And it takes a real dancer to be a part of one of those step teams.

I hope this guy wasn't just a stunter, but in any event, real women got a place in the spot light.  Good on ya.

The one on the left looks like a 250 lb female version of Arsenio Hall. I was halfway expecting it to say "I want to tear you apart, and your friend too!"

I get what's going on here and I guess it's cool but, as a straight male? I still don't give a rodents rectum.

Unconventional beauty is like alternative medicine.

People sing their praises about it when they see it working for someone else but are rarely willing to pick that over the real thing.

I get the feeling that the designer who did this wanted a reaction rather than appreciation. I mean, it's really hard to stand out when you're an attention whore in a sea of attention whores, so why not resort to some mild trolling?

The vast majority of posters in this thread are emblematic of what is wrong with American culture and perception of beauty.

Congratulations, scumbags.
