Christmas has seemingly come early for sporty feminists the world over. Sick and tired of asthmatic men dominating the world of televised sport, the sisterhood today rejoiced when progressive online retailer Amazon made an exciting announcement: Amazon has entered into a deal with AVM to stream womyns’ beach volleyball for the next three summers.
As the Accredited Times has previously reported, womyns’ sports is tragically underfunded and rarely gets a look-in on prime time TV. For some unknown reason, broadcasters seem reluctant to pay for the exclusive rights to show the excitement of a womyn runner trying to finish a marathon below 2 hours 30, despite such a runner being literally among the 20,000 or so fastest athletes in the world.
We were therefore surprised yet delighted when Amazon clinched an exclusive deal with the AVM to stream womyns’ beach volley ball. Often perceived as a minority sport, womyns’ beach volleyball clearly appeals to the sporting feminist enthusiast if Amazon is prepared to pay big bucks to broadcast it.
The Accredited Times offices includes various ‘relaxation’ corners, including one space dedicated to the showing of womyns’ sports like netball, hockey, rugby, mud wrestling, and now beach volleyball. We will be sure therefore to tune into Amazon to support the sisters in their daily battle against invasive sand. Kudos to Amazon! Down with the patriarchy!
