I'm trying to understand the online phenomenon of using a hawt avatar as an in to personify a snot-nosed high schooler. Why would anyone set their dreams at such a mediocre level? If someone's going to use a hawt avatar (which people are shallow, so they generally do), they should at least choose an alter-ego that doesn't suck. There are plenty of attractive, strong women out there who are better role-models for people. Act like them. Seriously, this needs to stop.
