Who is the hottest woman in the world? According to Maxim magazine the honor goes to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, star of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The designation – ‘Hottest Women In The World’ is both absurd and denigrating. Where does ‘Maxim,’ a glorified porno magazine come off defining for us what is hot and who fits the bill?
To continue the stupidity Maxim places the newly anointed princess on the Maxim Hot 100 list – Duchess Kate Middleton comes in at No. 26, ahead of women such as Brooklyn Decker (No. 36) and Minka Kelly (No. 52), but behind stars including Cameron Diaz (No. 4) and Scarlett Johansson (No. 14). The Queen must be so proud… .
The full list includes models, musicians, actresses and sports stars, among others. Of her spot at number one, Huntingon-Whiteley – photographed scantily clad with a sultry pout – tells the magazine it’s “a huge honor.”
She adds: “It’s a great title to have for a year and you can have some fun with it, I think.”
A huge honor – being called hottest by a trashy porno mag – now isn’t that every woman’s dream? What ever happened to the serious and progressive aspects of feminism and women’s liberation – to elevate and relieve women from their simplistic and degrading portrayals as sex objects?
