Women have more sexually charged bodies and have a lot more to show o.o so instead of covering up, they wear absolutely tiny mini-skirts?

I am watching a female tennis match atm, and i can see the womens underwears and everything.

Before a smart-alec says 'don't watch it then', i enjoy watching talented players play tennis male or female. The males dress modestly YET have less to show , but its the women - who have more to show, who dress so skimpy.

then you complain about being objectified.

It's minimalistic, doesn't get in their way, and allows maneuverability. /thread
The women currently wear sports bra's and a t-shirt, i am fine with that, women have breasts.

However, why do they need to wear 4inch mini-skirts and reveal their underwear. What is bouncing down there?

The men wear shorts, why can't women too? Does it get in the way of a man? Wearing a four inch miniskirt and skimpy underwear that is almost shown all the time isn't necessary. It makes no difference if a woman wears that or shorts.

1) It's hot so they don't want to overheat while playing sport

2) They don't want to be restricted while playing sport..

If you oversexualise a normal body that's your problem.

and the men don't get hot and sweaty ? It is not oversexualising a normal body. A womans body is far more sexual than a man with the curves and appendages.

The appearance of women generally has more effect on men than that of men to women? Just a guess.

A straw man of my argument. It isn't either extreme i.e slutty dress or old-fashioned. Why don't these women wear what the men wear? Shorts and a t-shirt.

Men probably want to let the boys swing free. Women however, find it much easier when things aren't bouncing about everwhere.

If you look at a womans magazine, you have more women on it than men. If you look at a mens magazine, you have far more women than men.

The media exploits the fact a womans body is more sexually charged, with breasts, curves, back-ends and so on.

I don't see why the women can't wear shorts an keep their t-shirts. Women in football do.

I don't want to keep seeing their underwear. I want to enjoy the tennis.

Its really quite easy to watch the tennis as well....

Also I could imagine a lot of the traditional members complaining if women wore shorts more often than skirts (the thought of it!)

I vote equality for men and that they should wear tight lycra shorts and tops.

Lol. Mens tennis is far superior than womens tennis, far far superior, but womens tennis would be more bearable if they didn't wear four inch skirts and show their underwear. I want to see a tennis match not soft porn.

The men wear shorts and tops as well. And no it isn't. A woman's body is not automatically sexual.

I think you'll find that the part under the skirt is not their actual underwear. Its normally used as a convenient place to store balls (not a euphemism) and so must be accessible. From experience they are easier to move in than shorts.

More sexually charged than a mans, and the media exploits that.

I could see the 'crack' between her ass. Men also can store tennis balls in their pockets, and mens tennis is far better to watch so i don't see any loss in performance.

Do you want them to wear a full skirt while trying to run for the ball?
