    If women in sport got equal recognition for their athletic abilities but a break away group decided that they just had to play in their undies, well fine, they have exercised their right to choose but the fact remains they do not have the option of playing at the same level as their male counterparts.

    I am of the opinion that the women who have a voice have some responsibility to the women who have no voice.

    I really wouldn't care if they were in crop tops, skinny shorts and referred to as "the women's league" but the mere fact it is called "the lingerie league" is actually inviting spectators to leer and ogle at the women. Their athletics are secondary.

    Feminism is not just about having choices, people need to be accountable for their choices and realise that every action we do impacts our lives and those around us.

    Men playing in undies getting fined if they wear a jockstrap.

    and a professional NON lingerie league for the women.

    Both of these options would even the 'playing field' out a little...Then I'd have no issue


    --- I think an age limit too....maybe 16+ would be appropriate?

    Of course feminism is still relevant. You've only got to spend two minutes on bubhub to realise that!

    You have no idea how many women do exactly the same thing.
    Its human nature. Take it for what it is. Human being a visual men more so then women but both do the same.
    You dont just have a mind you also have a body, people will look it's what humans do. Now of course there is a right way to go about it.

    There is a show in the US it's a talk show similar to the view.
    Anyway they where talking about a story I will be short and sweet about it.
    It goes like this - there was a couple the husband came home and asked for a divorce the woman was angry so she chopped his penis off.
    Now these women on the show where laughing their heads off about it. Saying how funny it was that his penis got chopped off etc.
    When one of the women on the show said "it ain't funny" she was quickly shut down and told its not the same thing. ( as it would be if it happened to a woman)
    Now if that was a bunch of guys talking about how hilarious it was that some husband chopped his wife's breasts off, they would have no job on Monday.
    My point being that both men and women must look at their actions.
    Men also get the short end of the stick, even in the media.
    We must be equal, we can not be equal at the expense of the opposite sex.

    I don't subscribe to the 'just don't watch it' mentality. Sometimes more is needed than just ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away. If people like it, fine. I'm not ok with it however.

    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.

    Call me difficult but I'm just not one of those bury-my-head-in-the-sand when it comes to this sort of stuff. Frankly I'd rather it not be there in the first place so I didn't have to adjust my life around making sure my kids don't see it.

    I don't want to distract from the thread topic but I've also come across this attitude before and I find it repugnant.

    Hmm, how 'bout no. Why should I have to 'take it for what it is'. Why should I have to put up with being leered at in the street?

    You dont just have a mind you also have a body, people will look it's what humans do. Now of course there is a right way to go about it.
    There is looking and there is leering. And what we are taught via the various visual texts that surround us is that women are objects.

    I agree, there is nothing funny about that. However, I fail to see its relevance.

    Society also fails men. Men are turned into creatures who can't control their base behaviours. They are constantly told that it is virtually expected of them. That is harmful to both men and women.

    Agreed. look at that thread a few days ago asking how often couples had sex, and a few women said men need sex, they will cheat if they can't get it, they can't help themselves blah blah. Those type of statements do nothing but box men into pigeon holes and act to disservice them.... and sadly this is common. Men are told that men have to be constantly sexual creatures or they aren't men.

    This panty football insults men as much as it does women.
