I catch both men and women beach volleyball games these last couple of days, and just puzzle over the differences in their attire! Well, being an old soul, my thoughts were why their clothing is so different?
What the women wear
Hey, in the name of the game, body sells, skin sells, skimpy outfits sells, sex sells!
Everybody benefits! The photographers will make tons of money. The athletes get offers to post nude for playboy magazine, for what else but money and more fame! The male genders glue their eyes to the television sets, and compare who has the "hottest" body in language that they use to strengthen their bond.
Then, for people like me, I have to cover the children's eyes and turn the TV off! The kids do not need to be exposed to this type of images just yet. For now, they should respect the human body!
What the men wear
These men played in the same hot weather, on the sand, surrounded by million people, and cameras, but why are they decently clothed? Why they are not just draped themselves in that skimpy Speedo piece?
Are men more conscious about their bodies, or are they not a hot selling item with bare skin? What about their sex appeal? There must be a playgirl magazine in existence. What's wrong? Are men worried about the sand that might get inside with "Speedo" swim suit?
And hey, women like to watch those athletic, muscles, bare skin, and flat abs too! Why is the difference between men and women body wear in the Olympic?
Are fairness and justice for both genders created equally? Why women are still being exploited? Most importantly, why women still agree to exploitation, and degrading? Can we have some respect, please!
