Buzzfeed: The Home of Listicles About Hot Men

And very, very few mentions of hot women.

Mollie Hemingway asked friends for theories on BuzzFeed's near-100%-fixation on the hotness of men, to the exclusion of women.

Theories ranged from the idea that BuzzFeed is a hostile work environment for straight men, or simply lacks the diversity of talent that would include sufficient numbers of straight men to shape their content, to the idea that BuzzFeed actually seeks to alter human nature itself by the pattern of their articles. One BuzzFeed fan admitted this view, saying that since everything's always been so awesome for straight men sexually, objectifying them is "cathartic hypercorrection" that empowers women's and gay men's sexuality.

There's also this factor: Some Social Justice Warrior women have decided they are so "triggered" by the site of a woman more attractive than they that they will embargo and hate-mail any site showing such women.

Why, they might even create a crusading #Hashtag!!!

And given the average looks of a Social Justice Warrior, that sort of means that any Hottest Women List will have to be made up exclusively of train accident victims and cuttlefish.
