WHY oh WHY are female athletes forced to wear these demeaning, tiny, buttock-baring outfits?
The men don't have to! WTF.
Excuse my outrage for a moment.
Water polo is a good example. Beach Volleyball is a better one. Or even gymnastics. Aw, heck, it's probably more than half the damned events.
If men can play and compete and win wearing shorts and a tank top, HOW in the world is it justifiable to put women in (almost) a thong?
These pictures don't tell the whole story. I can't post those!
This is nothing more than blatant sexual objectification. The women are made into objects, but the men get to be... just athletes.
Am I the only one who finds this unnecessarily gratuitous and demeaning of women?
