So Louis Smith posted a picture of Carly Patterson’s 16 year old ass. People are like, “OMG, So SEXIST!!” But why the fuck does he have a picture of Carly Patterson’s 16 year old ass in the first place. It’s because she’s wearing what is basically a T-shirt and panties. The required uniform for FIG women’s gymnastics. Yes, the FIG requires women, but not men, to wear what is basically underwear when they compete. But it’s Louis Smith that’s sexist.
There is an option for athletes to wear unitards, the last time I checked. But I’ve never seen a gymnast wear one on FIG artistic competition. The National Governing Bodies don’t take advantage of this tool to keep 16 year old asses from being ogled by people who like a nice ass. But it’s Louis Smith that’s sexist. Not only do NGB’s put 16 year old asses on display, some NGBs put them in leos that are two sizes too small with a high leg line so their asses stick out MORE. But it’s Louis Smith that’s sexist.
I hate leotards. They are completely stupid. So are people who have no problem with gymnasts wearing leotards but start shouting, “Sexism” when people look at what is on display. If you don’t want gymnasts to be ogled, let them cover their butts!!
