And here’s my other norms-of-appearance related gripe:
Hurrah – Wimbledon time! One of the few times of the year that women can be found on the sports pages, (almost) rivalling coverage of sportsmen. (Note that recently women cricketers in the UK also received some headlines. Hurrah again!).
But – boo! – once again, ridiculous attention is being paid to the appearance of the women on court.
And we get silly silly claims such as:
“lady tennis players” should not grunt because “it makes them unsexy, and sex appeal is the main selling point of women’s tennis”. (Former tennis player Michael Stich)
Or maybe the tennis has something to do with it? Yawn….
