I was just reading the thread about the crime scene at Meijer. Someone had a female friend whose car had become part of the crime scene so he posted her pic per the "rules." People then proceeded to announce whether they would hit it or not. Brodson said he wouldn't because her tits were too tiny. Should people who did not elect to put their pics online be subjected to this kind of rating? As a father with two daughters (eff the rules, for obvious reasons), I actually find this crass and invasive. Note: we are not talking celebrities here. Celebrity is, I suppose, a kind of self-imposed invitation to invasion of privacy, etc.
P.S. Not trying to pick on Brodson; his post was just the one that came to mind.

You must be a lot of fun at parties.
Lighten up Francis
Irony? Questioning the habit of rating unwilling girls brings you a party favorability rating. I guess I won't bother to rush your frat.
Hitability? Anyways, I think the whole "rules" and "pics" thing is dumb, but once posted I see no further harm in commentary.

Of course not. You apparently mistake this board for one where the typical poster is guided by a noble conscience.
Your plea for restraint and sexual morality on an internet sports message board is a hard sell.
The harm is in the dignity to the people who are being rated. Is it really that big a stretch to imagine that some of them wouldn't like it?
Oh noes someone did something bad on the interwebz. Call da poliz.
So what is your solution?
Obviously it is crass and invasive.
I have a daughter as well; it definitely changes how you view things, doesn't it? Now I cringe when I see those types of posts.
That is on the boner who posts the pic.
fishing for downvotes.
I agree though. Post pics of daughters and we all promise to speak with a new level of class and respect when announcing if and where we will deposit our semen.
I mean this in the most respectful possible way.
It seems to me that if you needed to have a daughter in order to see why the gross objectification of women is wrong, then you were probably part of the problem all along.
If you raise your daughter not to be a whore you won't have to worry now will you?
I can't disagree with your point, but I would just say that being a parent of a little girl makes it much more poignant.

So you are mad that guys are being guys on a board designed for guys. No offense ladies
You have an upvote from me.
That thread disturbed me. I have no kids, but found it troubling to post random girls Facebook pictures on here to be rated. It's one thing to post a picture of a celebrity, but another for a random private citizen.
If they did not elect to put their pics online, how did they get online?
Isn't that how Facebook started.
Figure this is as good a place as any to post this pic again. One of my all time favorites!
On Thursday, MSU Social Norms volunteers held the It’s Your Ducky Day event outside of Olin Health Center. The event was a health education opportunity for students, said Becky Allen, an alcohol, tobacco and other drug educator.

I think it's fair to say that they did not expect their pictures would be posted on random websites...unbeknownest to them...and rated by random guys.
Sure, posting your image online obviously takes a hit out of your privacy/anonymity...but come on. How would you like if you stumbled upon a message board where men were looking at pictures of your sister/mom and talking about how much they wanted to have sex with them?
I don't think that's fair to say.
As for finding pictures of my sister/mom I'd tell them that's what they get for posting that stuff online. Hell... my mom would be flattered that anyone wanted to still have sex with her.
Ok, I have to admit your last sentence made me laugh.
