    Of course men are going to watch and have a bit of a perve, much the same way as I have a perve when watching the nrl.
    If you dont like it, dont watch it. It really is that simple.

    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.

    Have you spoken to them? Have they told you how outraged they are? Can they not play football with clothes on. Start a petition, get sponsorship, rally the government, change the law. Yes they can, do they no they dont.

    As for the workforce it's not always the case but I admit it happens. But being a man you get called a control freak, a prick and so on.
    But yes it is harder for women I agree.

    How many women talk about sexy male football players, how many times are sports people (male) featured in mags not wearing much. How many times are women drooling over their butts and thighs etc.
    It happens on both sides. What people have to understand is the way the human brain works.

    I just can't understand feminist. It's like they say "sure go do whatever you want as long as its what I would do too". You have to follow their rules, their logic, their morals, their opinions. Anything that's outside that and you are labelled as brainwashed by society, uneducated, have no self respect etc.
    I just don't get it. Some women like taking their clothes off, some women like doing things you might not like to do. It's life, it's choice it's the very thing you are supposed to stand for.

    I know everyone will disagree with me. I'm not a feminist, Im an equalist.
    Nope. I don't disagree at all. I just don't like this is sort of "in your face" sort of stuff that kids pick up in. I'm so obsessed with trying to unsexualise my kids for as long as
    possible so they don't feel the need to take their clothes off at 18 for money and attention like their mother. Anywhooooo!

    I totally understand your reasoning. But I don't agree. Kids don't have the skills maturity to differentiate what 'real' society is/wants/expects.
    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.

    That's fine. But I know my kids and I know their limits and what they can and can't understand.

    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.

    I've watched it and don't really care that they're in their undies.
    I don't doubt they are great sportswomen. The sad thing is that women's elite sport is only interesting when they are dressed in panties. I think that says a whole lot.

    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.

    Dont let your kids watch then??
    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.
