One response to “Off the Grid

  1. Re: sexualization of female athletes: I agree with you that forcing women to “sex it up” is not playing by the rules, especially since they were not consulted in the first place. Our society allows women to dress somewhat sexy or not as they choose. But it must be her choice and not an imposition upon her. If an individual athlete wishes to do so, I am not against it within reason. It cannot detract from the athleticism of the athlete, and should not make the sporting event a joke or an insult. To define what I mean, Venus Williams’ recent sexy get ups took things a bit too far. She is too good an athlete to have to flaunt her body in a manner which definitely distracted the attention away from the competition itself.
