Skip to comments.High school "hotness tournament" pits girls in May madness bracket
Posted on 05/09/2013 6:07:42 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement
The boys at a Washington state high school have turned the pressures of being a teen girl up to "10."
For five years running, boys at Issaquah High School have pitted their female classmates against one another in an online "May Madness" tournament, voting on the sexiness of the girls and encouraging them to "look their finest" at school.
Officials in Issaquah, about 15 miles east of Seattle, say they have tried to stop the site, modeled after one focusing on celebrities run by a local sports radio station, without success.

Ain’t technology wonderful! :(
Like growing up plain or not good looking isn’t hard enough. It’s great for the pretty ones.
Sounds like there are still some straight high school boys out there. Good sign.
We had something like this at my high school. It was conducted silently, informally and I was the only voter. I had the top ten or twenty figured out but the rankings changed slightly with my mood. I do recall it took a great deal of thought and concentration a couple of times a day.
Sounds like one of the sites that Zuckerberg ran while he was in college prior to starting Facebook.
Now this is a girl’s sport that deserves public funding.
Stuff like this has happened since the beginning of time. Only the mode and technology has changed.
Yea. I think it was called Hot or Not.
Slam books have been around forever, high tech or otherwise....and it’s most often the girls doing the bitching.
It might be educational to compare ratings systems ;-)

Mixed messages, anyone?
Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
Kelsey Williams ain’t no way chunky!
This thread is useless without pictures.
Interesting/humorous thread. No pics? Outta here.
Back in the 70s, I and some of my college dorm floormates used to conduct impromptu, low-tech versions of this outside the dorm dining facility after the evening meal. We were really unsophisticated since we never went to a playoff bracket system. Of course, such action at a college today would result in severe consequences for the participants for violation of multiple sections of PC.
Welcome to the real world...
Dude, they're in high school. I'm as red blooded as they come but I've no interest in rating the sexiness of little girls.
#2 girl will hate #1 girl for life...
I think of them as meat markets for rich men
but, this is what passes for manhood nowadays...how crase you can be...how dismissive....how patronizing...how demeaning....
and this is why our country is so freaking insane..
we have few real men.....
Feminist: Fat, manless, and hairy-legged.
When I was in high school back in the early 60s we had the “Miss Warhoop Pageant”. The Warhoop was our annual.
The girls dressed in gowns and they also wore one piece swim suits. These were probably what people would call conservative but you still could see what their figures looked like. The judges were young officers from nearby Eglin afb. One year they landed on the ball field in a helicopter tho they left in an Air Force car.
I think my high school had a much better than average number of pretty girls. I remembered several as about as pretty as a girl gets and I recently went back and looked and sure enough, my memory was not wrong. There were several absolute babes.
You define real manhood as the inability to notice whether a member of the opposite gender has a pretty face?
And THATS why America is in such deep trouble?
civilization is crashing down, a full speed
Is the tie-breaker still “the girl with the biggest boobs?”
A little harsh, don't you think? Also ironic, since you prove her point with your own behavior.
Oh, please, get off the high horse before you hurt yourself.
Women LOVE beauty pageants. They love the attention. What all the feminists of the world want are for women to be men and real women don’t want that. Feminists are dikes that are uncomfortable being women.
