27 May

it’s freaking badminton. Nothing’s going to make anyone watch that shit unless it includes live sex acts.

I both dread and happily anticipate the kind of Google hits *that’s* going to bring…

    So it’s more “feminine” to wear a micro-mini skirt & exhibit one’s panties, than to sport shorts? What next, hot pants & wet T-shirts?

    (And we all know that all female athletes are all lezbos anyway. Why are they even bothering?)

    Obviously the solution is to return to the original Greek Olympic ideal & make everyone compete nekkid.

    Staggering sexism. Note that the sponsors get mentioned. It’s all about money, ain’t a damn thing funny-The Message

    P.S.: Only #4 for the search “badminton + live sex acts.”

    That will ruin poker as a demonstration sport.

    Poker? How about chess, S_McG?

    A woman’s body is never completely her own. It’s a marketing device, a lure, a battleground, a hostage, a cautionary tale, a plot device, an accessory. It’s weird how you’re inside it and you’re looking at it, and it’s not like a mirror, it’s like a model on the showroom floor, or out in the back lot, or (when you’re old) propped up on concrete blocks in an overgrown yard. Include me out. Do Not Want. I cannot help it: I have a mental image of those strong young women with their good badminton-swingin’ arms, and they hear the sponsor talking about being cuter and skirtier, and slowly they turn, step by step, and they raise up their rackets and SMASH! Shut up silly sponsors.

    Would this be an inappropriate time to link to Christopher Guess’ hilarious “What’s wrong with being sexy?” bit from Spinal Tap?

    Yes, because the uniforms for women’s volleyball aren’t at all sexist.

    Skirts are stupid. But let’s not pretend that women’s sports aren’t exploitative in any case.

    Eh, my point wasn’t so much that it’s sexist in comparison to any other sport, but that sexing it up isn’t going to do shit.

    I’d prefer it weren’t the case for any sport. Oh, and a lot of Muslim women play badminton, so the fact that the practice is exclusionary (possibly on purpose) adds another layer of fucked-upness.
