A porn reviewing subculture
Strangely, reviews that bitch about how ugly the women in a given scene are tend to get, in the parlance, “neg-banged” all the way to the bottom of the page. And reviews that ask, “Why the fuck would anyone be turned on by this?” also tend to get neg-banged; often, the hearty defenses of the joys of, say, GILF porn or BBW scenes rise to the top of the review pile.

This confused me for a long time. You’d think this a community of porno fanatics would be harsh on ugly women (and, to be fair, sometimes they are). But by and large, the good folks at Videobox realize that they’re all here to indulge their inner kink, and recognize that attraction is an intensely personal issue. If someone says, “Why the hell do women have to get these stupid tattoos?” you can pretty much bet they’ll be at the bottom, buried under a lot of counter-reviews that ask why the hell you’re watching it, then.

I'd long suspected that if men were nearly as picky about how women look as the trollacracy implies, the human race would have died out long ago. Nice to see some evidence.
