Oh I just have one pet peeve. I really can't stand people who are annoyed by either of the following: empty profiles, 'unreadable' fonts, unmatching body parts, flexi prims, AO-less avis, jazz hands,

DJs/hosts teleport inviting their "friends"

I'm not apportioning blame for what's been going on in this forum recently, because that's one thing that appears to start a thread on its downward spiral. Like many of us here - I am absolutely

While I'm here...(running around furniture to evade Selene)...

Do you think we could talk Taylor Swift into changing her name to "Generic Blonde Girl"?  I mean, she has SO many looks.  It's got to the point where I see any attractive blonde woman between 20 and 35 and think, "Is that...Taylor Swift?"

I wouldn't know Taylor Swift if she walked up and said "Hi!".  You could fool me with any blonde, so she's already "Generic Blonde Girl" as far as I'm concerned.

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm not diminishing anyone, successful or not.  As I said, I wouldn't recognize her if she walked up to me on the street.  That's pretty much "generic," and purely from my own personal perspective.

Well... considering the word used was generic and not genetic it kind of makes a difference in meaning and context.

Ironically, that's probably a genetic thing. 😁

   Oh, she's a musician? I .. Didn't know that. I'm guessing she doesn't doesn't do much metal.

Always been fairly meh about Taylor until listening to that video.

Show me anyone else whos natural, (not digitally re-engineered or re-generated), voice, can get that
close to sounding like Enya's incredible harmonies: -> 2:07 - 2:25s and I'll eat my prim hat.

I would be very interested to learn more about her vocal layering process when recording.
Is she the musical director and the major influence in sound engineering?
I don't care much for words, but the singing is amazing.

I think the issue actually is perspective, she’s quite a talented award-winning musical artist and has been since 2007 with nearly a dozen albums under her belt while just turning 30 this year. Memes and jokes aside, she has won 10 Grammys and has a huge list of other award nominations and wins. That’s hardly anything close to ‘generic’ by anyone’s standards whether you follow or care for popular music or not so I found the statement about her ‘looks’ dismissive and uninformed regardless of the intent. I’m not a Taylor ‘stan’ but she is rather a big deal.

Forgot that one.  Maybe she should just be Chameleon Girl.  Er, Person.  (And yes, my original comment was GENERIC, not "genetic".  I don't think it "diminishes" her at all.  More like making her a whole category instead of an individual.)

Of course it doesn't diminish her. She is unquestionably very talented, but it's a fact of showbiz that there is only a very narrow allowance for how women are allowed to look. It's natural that they can be difficult to tell apart when there's almost no real diversity among them and the few outliers are the exceptions that prove the rule. 

I can never recognise Sienna Miller, for some reason. It's like I have selective face blindness. It doesn't matter how many times I see her, I can never ever remember what she looks like. Trying to picture her now and drawing a blank.

It seems the ideal for feminine beauty is to look like a baby. Babies have hairless bodies, a bright face that differs from an older face color that tends to fade over time (especially bright lips), big eyes (babies eyes are disproportionately large).
Of course there are other factors that play into this - our culture has a fascination with youth, and with making an extreme contrast between men and women apparent in order to fit male/female stereotypes of beauty.

And then there's this phenomenon for further analysis:

Never even heard of Sienna Miller. Never saw Taylor Swift until a few days ago. Didn't know who she was either. I stopped trying to keep up with who is who in all those popularity contests long ago.

Nothing like a bit of catty "More-Feminist-Than-Thou" virtue signalling to greet one in the morning.

Oh, I have no doubt about her talents as a musician.  She's apparently quite good. The original comment was simply about the fact that it's hard to tell her apart from any number of other blonde women. And yes, I'm definitely "uninformed." Thanks to the recent flurry of photos in this thread, I'm more likely to recognize her than I was a week ago, but I wouldn't put money on it.
