I remember finding out about this site a long while ago and being
quite outraged. I have to agree with you here. 

The "American Beauty" picture, for example, depicts a very strange arm
position[1], there's no message at all in the face[2], just an empty
expression... which makes me think of a doll instead of a living person.

I fail to see how this is empowering or stereotype-smashing. I also find
the choice of this movie to be quite a poor choice.

Anyway, just my .2 cents.
