The Misogynistic Underfunding of Womens’ Sport

We have the British to thank for inventing the bulk of sports we play and watch today. Once they had built their empire and subjugated people of color, British army officers and the aristocracy naturally had to find meaningful ways of filling their days. Ordering Indians and Africans around might have taken up most of the morning, but what to do after lunch once the alcoholic haze had evaporated? The average British officer enjoyed many hours of leisure each day and by Jove they meant to enjoy them.

This excess of ‘leisure time’ explains why the British introduced many sports to the world including soccer, rugby, cricket, tennis, golf, hockey, badminton, table tennis and darts. Even if the British largely suck at most of these sports today, we must never forget that this was their endowment to the world. Whenever we watch sports events on prime time TV, we largely have the British to thank.

Today, ‘sport’ is a multi-billion global industry, whether we are talking about the English Premier League (soccer), the ATP World Tour (tennis), the Tour de France (Cycling), boxing, or the UEFA Champions League (soccer again). Accredited businesses the world over are desperate to sponsor these sports and invest in the ‘winning team’. In cycling, for example, media giant Sky has backed serial Tour winner, Chris Froome, and reaped the rewards many times over.

For some inexplicable reason, however, the majority of televised sports concerns men. Most sponsorship money, likewise, is invested in male athletes or male-dominated sports.  What’s more, most people who watch sports on TV are men, and are mostly interested in other men playing sport.   Who takes part in the ‘World Cup’. Male soccer players. Who is involved in the ‘Tour de France?’ Male cyclists. Womyn simply do not get a let in.

Why? Are all these men gay? Despite womyn making up approximately 50% of the world population, they attract only minimal sponsorship. Why is this?

We know from accredited TV broadcasting and media that women are identical to men in all respects. Their VO2 max statistics are the same, they have the same muscle capacity. Many transgendered athletes have won medals for Allah’s sake. Natural physical ability is therefore exactly the same between the sexes so this cannot explain why womyns’ sports has such a poor audience. The main reason, sadly, is pure misogyny: men simply cannot bear the idea of losing to a womyn in any sports event.

When womyn athletes are covered in the media, it’s usually in the form of sexist photos which accentuate their physical attributes. Photos like this:

or like this:

Womyn cyclist.
The Feres sisters – synchronised swimmers from Brazil. Wondering no doubt how the male rapist cameraman was able to gain access to their room

Or this

Another womyn athlete, showing her displeasure at being shamelessly exploited

or like this:

It seems then that womyn athletes are simply objectified in the media just as they are in daily life. We forget, however, that these female athletes are in peak condition, that they are more than capable of beating their male counterparts. Take womyn athlete, Caitlyn Jenner, who kicked ass when competing under a male pseudonym. Since Caitlyn identified as a womyn all those years ago, this means she legitimately beat all her male rivals.

In conclusion, only pure  misogyny is preventing womyn from breaking all number of world records as well as balancing their career, family life, love life, and other pursuits.

What we need to take womyn’ sports further is equal (with men) funding of spend. Womyn have proved themselves  as the physical equal of men in all meaningful ways. We simply need to back our female athletes and give them a chance to succeed.

I don’t understand why womyn’s sports don’t get as much primetime coverage as the male-dominated sports. I love watching the WNBA. I haven’t missed a game since 2001. 98% of the players are lesbians too (actual stat from a former player, Candice Wiggins) – so it is also a very diverse league as well.

Well, I must point out that the world-renowned sport of mud-wrestling has very few male participants, but lots of male viewers.

It’s just a shame that womyn’s rugby doesn’t have the same viewership as mud wrestling. Female rugby players also get covered in mud, so it should be just as popular. I just can’t figure out why it isn’t?

sexism and patriarchy-

so profound are these things that even WOMEN do not like watching women’s sports.

The WNBA loses money consistently but that is because of rape culture. Women don’t even watch it. Women watch women’s sports less than men do.

It’s almost as if biology has selected different sets of attributes and interests to the different sexes, but notice I said ALMOST.

We were fortunately brought back from the brink of believing this by progressivism, which gives us the maxim that ALL people are exactly identical in every way, race and sex are social constructs, and men and women are the same except that women are physically stronger, faster, smarter, and better at literally everything.

I think they are already a step ahead on this. Apparently they already have dropped the NFL player wages to $0 because I have heard many of them recently refer to themselves as slaves.

This example of womyn running around semi-naked is OK, as it might actually draw some males into watching the game. However, in nearly all other cases, showing semi-naked womyn is basically RAPE as men fantasize about sexually abusing them. I am thoroughly confused. Being progressive is extremely difficult.

trav777

This is simple- womyn are so powerful that we do not need men watching ANYTHING for it to be a success!

Who CARES if men watch something or not? Men should still subsidize it forever because womyn are so independent and strong and don’t need men to support anything they do!

Capitalism is to blame. As the author points out these sports were invented to be leisure time activities and not a way of showing off toxic masculinity.

The white male imperialist have enslaved POC and forced them to compete against each other while monetizing the “sport” by selling tickets to the racist masses.
It is a story taken straight from the Romans and their coliseums. The more violent the competition the more the Trumpians enjoy it. When one of the enslaved participants finally takes a knee, as a form of peaceful protest, the “fans” rebel.

Women have not had time for these leisurely sports because in previous generations they were enslaved to their kitchens by Dominate White Males.
Fear not, just like women have done in business, They will surpass males quickly.

Note to Author: Several more photo examples of female exploitation would further the premise of the story.

And even if womyn get affirmative action, they still earned 100% of what they achieve, and men earned nothing.

I have heard arguments that male sports are more attended/watched because, for example, a male teenager soccer team from a city where soccer is not popular will beat womyns’ world champion soccer team, but that is probably just sexist propaganda by loser males. See https://www.cbssports.com/soccer/news/a-dallas-fc-under-15-boys-squad-beat-the-u-s-womens-national-team-in-a-scrimmage/ – the accredited press explains that “The U.S. [womyns team] surely wasn’t going all out”, and that is the reason why teenagers beat them. I am sure no such games will ever be played again, as they play into hands of male chauvinists.

MillionDollarBonus

We must never let this happen again. Womyn are better than men, which is why need to have separate competitions for men and womyn. Apart from that anomaly, womyn would probably beat men every time if they were allowed to compete, which just isn’t fair on the men.

trav777

the boys jr national team destroyed the women’s US national team a few years ago. Because women are superior. I have watched not ONE SINGLE MOVIE from Hollywood where women do not win every time, even in fistfights against multiple men. So I know that the womyn succumbed to the patriarchy and white privilege.

Yes, might have been white privilege (despite boy’s soccer team consisting mostly of Hispanics) as well as institutionalized sexism. Or the shape of soccer ball, which reminds of a testicle, which is sexism again.

trav777

The pictures showed tons of WHITE MALES posing with the superior women who were ironically much shorter and less athletic appearing.

In fact you can look it up as it was FC Dallas (a MLS club) academy team for 15 and under boys. Presumably you must pay for this; most soccer players in the USA are despicable white males and they have the generational wealth from slavery to afford such academies (to get University admittance advantages because of their privilege). Hispanics, having watched them, are by and large very poor at playing soccer. Because of oppression and colonialism.

Not that it matters, but it’s a mix with many Hispanics – see https://www.fcdallas.com/players/squad/u15

Lots of Mendoza, Perez, Gomez, etc

Hispanics are completely crazy about soccer.

As usual for the reactionary editors here, a spoonful of well-intended half-measures & hot air; never the benevolent yet firm bucketful of good gov’t.

The founding principle of our democratic social republic is equality of opportunity. Sadly, the imperfections of evolution have left us with wrongful biological-physical bias against women.

Fortunately, with progressive chemical enhancement, we can now move beyond the prejudice of the past & embrace a more promising & equal future.

Our plan is mandatory testosterone supplementation of school age girls, coupled with chemical castration of young boys who demonstrate discriminatory levels of athleticism. Any other approach is tantamount to child abuse.

In time, these future-facing procedural changes will result in fully integrated amateur & professional sports; & will end the hard bigotry exacted upon us by random chance.

You are behind the curve. All this was done in communist wonderland of East Germany. Quote:

And for East German athletes… GDR weightlifter Roland Schmidt was pumped so full of steroids, he grew 36DD breasts.

Heidi took so many steroids she is now Andreas. Drugs she was forced to take by coaches as a young girl changed her gender and left her with pain in her hips and legs from lifting huge weights while under the influence of steroids.

Do you beat your wife with the same clumsy fists you use to slowly pound your dour instruction-manual of a response.

There is no tolerance for intolerance such as yours, sir. You discuss pain, but what do you know of the soul-crushing despair of a rejected female placekicker.

You’ll find us grading you on an altogether different curve once you’re up for your oxytocin empathy evaluation.

You have my support Home Biscuit,
All of Hollywood movies have the female come in and win the championship game by either kicking the winning field goal or throwing the final inning strike out.
None of them are ever roided out.

I agree with your suggestions, but your disagreeability indicates to me that your testosterone might be far too high. Have you been tested? I strongly urge you to do so and get treated before you end up hurting someone. High estrogen beta males are docile and harmless. They wouldn’t dream of challenging anyone, even someone running towards them with a chainsaw.

You gone too far this time, MDB. No logger worth his salt uses a chainsaw in anger against a high estrogen beta male even if xe does stink of cologne. Use a clothes peg for crissake!

I wouldn’t put it past right wingers to do something like that. If they’re willing to use verbal violence, then they’re probably capable of physical violence too.

Testosterone supplements for womyn beat the biscuit as far as I’m concerned. A man’s mustache is there to tickle a womyn’s fancy. A mustache worn by a womyn makes her look twice her age!

MillionDollarBonus

It’s very attractive too. These days, the men are shaving more than the womyn.

MillionDollarBonus

This is a clear case of misogyny. Watching womyn’s sports is so exhilarating. When you’re watching female athletics, you’re literally looking at the 10,000th fastest and the 10,000th strongest people in the world! The fact that trans-womyn often beat men at their own sports also indicates that it is culture and stereotypes causing men to outperform womyn in general, as trans-womyn are biologically identical to womyn. The only difference is that trans-womyn were conditioned with the same propaganda that men are indoctrinated with, and told they are good at sports, so when they change genders they carry all of this cultural influence with them. Culture is what makes people different, not biology. Polar bears are different from grizzly bears because of culture.

It is time we re-visit the oppression pyramid!

Finding it hard to believe that woymen had not already surpassed men I looked up the 2017 Boston Marathon times.
Indeed Men were slightly ahead in their category Runners: Men with the top finisher clocking in at 2:09:37 and under Runners: Women the top female was 2:21:52.

The shocking part was Wheelchairs: Men was 1:18:04 with Wheelchairs: Women at 1:28:17

The fastest man was beat by 30+ minutes by a handicapped female and 50+ by a handicapped male.

Based on this data, the handicapped have a clear advantage and need to be moved down in the pyramid. It is time they stopped using their privilege and put in their correct place.

MillionDollarBonus

I’m confused. Where did the 30 minutes come from? I’m a white male so I often struggle with numbers.

trav777

from white privilege.

Blacks are incidentally faster than whites not because of genetics, but because they grew up running from the police.

MillionDollarBonus

No, I think we’re allowed to say that they are genetically superior in this regard. If it’s a good attribute for people of color, we can mention genetics.
