I come from the days of the Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, and NSYNC.
For the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC, there were generally one or two good-looking ones, one freaky one, and the rest were just sort of to fill up some space. But with girl groups, all of them were very attractive or cute in their own way.
That is already sexist enough, letting the uggos slide in the boy bands. But now, we have The Wanted:
WHAT IS THIS?
I demand equal treatment. I want sexualization of men, and for them to be actually sexy. Our culture has regressed if average looking guys can be in a boy band can be popular and expect us to swoon at their attempt at a 6 pack.
