So yet again feminists come to attack a man for proposing in public. What is wrong with these women, it's one thing to want equal rights but to have a go at a guy for proposing on TV, this is just stupidity, in fact I doubt even half these women actually feel that way, they just want to get into the limelight, it's really quite disappointing now to compare what feminism has become to it's original values of equality. My question really is just why? Why do you feel the need to attack man for an act of love?
Just why? Watch

Maybe the feminism 'male entitlement' angle is a little excessively applied here, but there is a point to what the article says. This was supposed to be her moment to shine. She had just won a medal and was on top of the world. Why steal her thunder by hijacking her ceremony and putting her on the spot like that in front of billions. Like one blogger put it, "What a way to add pressure to her, having the entire world watch her as she makes such a private and life-changing decision".
Even the girl's hesitation and awkward after-photos hinted that something wasn't quite right.
Feminism or not, this was one where the guy did wrong

I also think it is wrong to propose to someone in public, because it is not fair to put them under social pressure. However, I don't think it was deliberate on his part, and calling it a "form of male control" is nonsense, since I'm sure some women propose to men, and some of them in public areas.
