It's hard to articulate just what about Megan Fox is so annoying. Yeah, she won the genetic lottery (except for that thumb
, but we can't hate on her for that), she's got that bad-girl appeal
and she is hotter than hell.
But the woman definitely comes off as uncouth, to say the least, anytime she opens her mouth. After all, she did beat out Scarlett Johansson for the title of one of the most, er, annoying chicks in America
For example, she recently told EW
that she "wasn't proud" of her work in "Transfomers" and that "If I really buckle down, I think one day I could be a very good actress. But so far, I haven't done anything yet." Fans say she's simply refreshingly honest and self-deprecating, but others think that blase attitude contributes to the objectification of women.
We saw this article
today on CollegeCandy.com
that really hammers the point home: She's bad for women.
That this type of woman – who comes across as a crude simpleton and takes on movie roles nearly pornographically portraying her body – is the ultimate male ideal, should trouble all women. Intentionally or not, the global obsession with her sends a message to women that perfection means impossible beauty and a serious lack of social graces, if not a lack of intelligence.
There's a great conversation going on over there about whether Fox is trouble for women, or just male fantasy. Go share your two cents
