The Thinking Housewife: Olympic women athletes too athletic

Sure, America’s women athletes may have taken home a whopping 29 gold medals, but over on The Thinking Housewife, Laura Wood is pissed off at them – and the rest of the Olympic women — for being so, well, athletic.

In a recent post, Wood rushes to the defense of a Turkish newspaper columnist who complained about the “broad-shouldered, flat-chested women” who were destroying Womanhood with their mannish, muscular bodies. Alas, wrote Yuksel Aytug, even their “breasts – the symbol of womanhood, motherhood – [were] flattened into stubs as they were seen as mere hindrances to speed.” Curse you, sports bras!

Seriously, in future Olympics, female athletes should face mandatory deductions for every cup size less than C.

Wood adds her own two cents:

A man who dares to say what every normal person has been thinking when confronted with the muscle-bound female gladiators at the games and what soft, effeminate Western men would not dare articulate, Aytug has been attacked for his remarks throughout the Western world. He is tiresomely accused of misogyny. In fact, judging from these words, he is an admirer of women, a courageous defender of them.

Or at least of their tits.

The Olympic Games are anti-woman. They require female athletes to ape men in grotesque ways. They compromise female fertility and modesty. They promote the idea that aggression and competitiveness in women are normal and healthy. They debase not just women athletes but womanhood throughout the world.

Well, I suppose Wood can take solace in the fact that the “muscle-bound” bodies of these “female gladiators” didn’t stop the Pedophile – sorry, Ephebophile – Army of Reddit from perving on McKayla Maroney and the rest of the US Women’s Gymnastics team.

Perhaps the female athletes could stop wearing next to nothing and maybe we would focus on their accomplishments instead of appearance.

Sure you would.

They also need to stop being black girls with hair.

Huh, my post dissapeared. Anyway, article on the first women to represent several conservative muslim countries. They didn’t fair so well in the competitions, but imagine the difficulties they had in training at all. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2183262/Olympics-2012-The-Muslim-women-overcame-odds-make-London.html

Wikipedia notes this on the varying definitions of critical theory:

According to critical theorist Max Horkheimer a theory is critical in so far as it seeks “to liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them” (Horkheimer 1982, 244).

So, while Owly is grossly misapplying the strict marxist definition of critical theory, in the widest possible sense he’s just accusing everybody else of seeking social justice…while making a big show on his appropriation of social justice fight. I’m laughing at the irony.

Typical man & barefoot & pregnant housewife bull.A womans purpose in life ain’t to produce babies one right after the other & be home doing nothing but house chores.Women can have strength & be womanly.If you think all of a womans worth is in her body & breasts you must be shallow & don’t respect women at all.

This topic made me think of these generalizations. Traditional women like to date athletes (male, of course). Non-traditional women like to be athletes. Okay so not all traditional women date athletes and not all non-traditional women are athletes. But these generalizations are my opinions on what traditional and non-traditional women think when it comes to athletes.
