The other day, while waiting in a checkout line, I saw a magazine with this picture on the cover with the headline, "Matt Damon: Sexiest Man Alive". The fist thought that popped into my head was that he looks more like someone with Downs Syndrome* than a sexy person. Really though, who has the authority to declare him so sexy?
Now, I don't claim to be an expert on male attractiveness, so I sought out the opinion of several females. I asked them if they thought that Damon was Sexy. Their responses were pretty much all the same - no.
Is this a joke? What kind of world is this where non-sexy people get all of the glorification of sexiness?
* Note: I do not have anything against people with Down's Syndrome. I know several and they are wonderful and amazing people.
