    Women's sports attire...

    Sarah Voss, a German gymnast, is taking on the sport for their requirements to wear leotards.






    Okay, I'm not a sports fan. But, I do enjoy watching women's gymnastics. I even enjoy some of the amazing routines. I also watch women's beach volleyball.

    I wonder how many men would watch women's sports if they all dressed like soccer players? I wonder what the percentage of the women's soccer audience is male versus the percentage that is male for women's gymnastics or women's beach volleyball?

    Sports, even amateur sports, is driven by big money and the big money is driven by audience size. In women's sports, uniforms are a factor in audience size.

    Is nude pole dancing on the agenda for the Olympics?

    In our "new" society it's sexist to say this but it's a fact. Sex sells. Not only that but women in little or no clothes will get men to watch (because we are all dogs). Ad agencies know this & have been using it to sell stuff forever. Now it's a no no (sadly). You couldn't pay me to watch beach volleyball because I don't care for the sport at all BUT I've been known to very very slowly change channels when I see women's volleyball simply because of what they (aren't) wearing.

    And here's the deal. If nobody watched it there probably wouldn't be a sport & it certainly wouldn't be on tv. Now my guess is sooner probably more than later the liberals will say that it's sexist & they will cover up more & for some strange reason the sport will stop being on tv (because nobody watches it) & the money will leave the sport & it will die off. Now I could care less but I do wonder how anyone can be so stupid that they can't add those facts together & understand what the end will be.

    There is only one reason men watch gymnastics and women's beach volleyball. Yes. THAT reason.
    Before any would-be virtue signalers care to take issue with that- ask yourself this: How much men's gymnastics or beach volleyball do you watch?
    You are the carbon they want to reduce

    The only reason I got Playboy magazine was to read the articles.

    LOL

    It actually DOES exist. Guys that are too short for volleyball become basketball players.

    I watch some gymnastics on youtube but I have never watched an event. I have also never watched a game of volleyball.

    I like Australian womens basketball/WNBL - they used to wear leotard things but they went to shorts and I think its a pretty good idea because they are basketball players not whores. I watch WNBL because the players are talented and they have exciting games. I also enjoy watching womens Rugby League for same reason.

    They made a statue of this womens AFL player in Victoria because people made sexists comments to her on twitter about this photo -

    I agree that people shouldnt harass her on twitter or make her feel uncomfortable but giving her a statue for it was dumb. Apparently they have just made a documentary about her too.

    My favourite womens Rugby League player is Kezie Apps.

    I dont think women should have to whore themselves to get men to watch their sport because a lot of womens sport is worth watching anyway but at the same time I dont think it hurts if they are attractive I guess.

    I dont watch WNBA but I watched the final of the under 19s FIBA womens World Cup match between Australia and USA last year and it was one of the best and most exciting basketball games I have ever seen. Australia lost the game on a tech foul called on Isobel Anstey who elbowed a US player in the face after taking a rebound. It was a terrible call. Australia should have won. But I was really impressed with US player Hailey Van Lith. She is clutch.

    Hailey Van Lith. Im a big fan.
