I don't mean to rub girls up the wrong way (maybe inferior might not be the right word :dontknow:) but when I see something on TV from a sport news conference like this: Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1385059606.690251.jpg

It just makes me laugh and begs the question, what use do these girls have?
To stand behind sportsman, put on a fake smile and look good with large rack?

I see this sort of thing in other sports too like F1 when the girls line up and congratulate the winner...I mean why ? What's the point? It's so cringing.

I see it in road cycling, eg last year when Bradley Wiggins won the Tour de France, didn't he have 2 pretty girls give him a kiss on both cheeks, posing for the camera...?

What are your thoughts ladies and gents? Why do we have these obviously hot girls kiss the winners of sports tournament or pose behind a sportsman smiling when in fact, they look stupid and they're just there for the looks.

Why don't we have hot guys in women sports posing behind them?

Imagine if the England football team was mixed, there wouldn't be a single female on the team. We'd need 'positive' discrimination to get an even gender split. Yes females are physically inferior and thus inferior at sports.OP your gay methinks those girls that line up at hawt any hetero red blooded male should be tongues out for them.

I was faster than a lot of boys at my school :huff:

But guys are taller, have muscles and don't have boobs to contend with when running. So of course they are going to be better at sport than girls, on average. :erm:

But why not have hot guys at women sports conferences? Why does it work one way and not both? You get where I'm going with this...

Boobs aren't necessarily true - I have boobs bigger than most girls in my school

Makes you pay attention to the brand the sponsor is usually promoting, it's subliminal.

True - the human race originally evolved with women having the caring instincts and men being heartless sporty hunks. It's evening out now though.

I agree it's subliminal advertising but it's cringing too imo. They have to make the girls show their cleavage to promote something and keep us guys hooked..

In a lot of male-orientated sports, where testosterone or adrenaline is involved, women play the part of 'decoration'. Purely objects.

It's total bullschiz but the tv officials would argue that 'sex sells'. F1 probably is the best example. High speed cars, trophies, huge audience. Their target audience would be guys, and so to keep the guys watching they put [carefully selected] women in the background, plus to give an ego boost to the drivers.

It's not that in all sports women are inferior, they're just objectified with certain sports like football, F1, wrestling etc. Well, objects and ego boosters.


If they had hot topless guys posing in womens' sports then you'll get petty groups like 'mens rights' moaning about objectifying. To hell with them, where are the application forms?

Historical reasons? Like, the typical dashing knight saving a "damsel in distress" and getting kisses of gratitude? Perhaps it's just that image that both men and women like to recreate. The whole thing with them hardly wearing anything is probably just typical of the general trend for women to show more skin :/?

Sports are generally dominated by, and watched by, men.

Sex sells, innit.

Completely agree :yes: it's sad that women in the 21st century are still being objectified but if that sells, the organisers are gonna do it! Men like the eye candy, women get paid for it...
