Showing My Feminist Side

Yes, I know that to many I come across as a staunch anti-Feminist. I assume that among the few of the Feminist females that I’ve interacted with I am labeled by them as grossly and horribly atavistic and misogynous. That, however, says far more about the mindsets and worth of my detractors than it does about me. I am, in point of fact, a true feminist with a great and abiding love for women. It can hardly be claimed to be my fault that the Feminist movement, almost always plagued by deranged and bitter radicals, devolved into something toxic after it succeeded in its aims.

It certainly beats the skeletons dipped in wax that fashion and weight-loss industries keep telling us are desirable. My issue, such as it is, is with the fact that female athletes posing for “glamor” shots, i.e., the sexier the better, has become de rigueur across all arenas of female sport.

Face it, when a Google search for “Sexy Olympians” returns approximately 8,460,000 results, society has an issue involving these athletes. Rather than glorifying their abilities, we revel solely or mostly in their figures.
