My nearly 5 year old has probably seen worse in tv. She knows that it's a costume and the ladies don't dress like that in real day to day life. She knows behavior displayed in music clips etc is not how people (especially women) should act in real life and the same with the way they dress. It's not how 'real' society expects them to be.

possible so they don't feel the need to take their clothes off at 18 for money and attention like their mother. Anywhooooo!
Just look at the studies on violent video games and behaviour. It's undeniable.
I feel the same about music video clips and the sexual nature of 99% of them.
And it is American football, the men wear 3/4 tights, sometimes in translucent white. Not the most flattering menswear.
Feminism is about choice, they choose to play. It is women making a choice in what they are doing for most probably lots of money. And in saying that I don't know because women have chosen to be cheerleaders for a very long time and I'm pretty sure that is for very bad money.
I have so much more of a problem with working girls in tourist zones such as the Philippines and Thailand.
Yes women ogle NRL footballers. They also wear a uniform, not undies and are revered first and foremost for their sporting prowess. The eye candy is just a bonus.
I also agree feminism is about choice. But that doesn't mean I'm going to buy a family ticket to see women running around in panties with their boobs popping out
What I'll say to my girls or my son if they asked why they don't have more clothes on??
Probably the same as when my 6 year old asked why the Moulin Rouge girls have their boobs out. "because that is what they do darling, aren't they beautiful".
And to be perfectly honest in regards to my kids (and I am ONLY referring to MY kids).... The last thing they really pay attention to is what people are wearing... They are far more interested in what's going on around them.
I seriously dont know anyone who would take their child to one of those games. Some things are meant for adults, so in that sense maybe there should be age restrictions on who can watch.
And no, nrl players arent wearing only undies, but i'm sure there are a few of us who will admit to imagining them running round in much less.
