My Bid to Organize Feminism Against the Sports Industry

Sometimes when Feminists complain about how the pornography industry degrades women purely for the satisfaction of the men, I can't help but wonder why they don't ever think to attack the sports industry. I keep seeing women developing interests in different sports, and I don't just mean by admiring the butts of the football players in their uniforms, but an actual interest. They are, like, memorizing stats and picking favorite teams and participating in sports. Participating!! These women might say that they are actually interested in sports, but I think they've just been so brainwashed by the popular culture that they're inadvertently lying to themselves.

No rational person has an interest in sports. Unless you're actually participating, or you have money riding on a team, sports are boring. There's no plot to them, and there's nothing but long pauses of nothing between the few seconds of actual action. The only way men derive any sort of entertainment from watching sports is pretending to be playing. All you ever see men do when they're watching a game on TV or in the stands is cheer when the team scores a point, like they had anything at all to do with it, or complain about the coach or the player when a player does something wrong, like they could really do anything about it. Take away the level of fake participation, and what do you have? A three-hour stretch of wasted time.

Now, enter: women. Before the last fifty years, women only had two main interests in sports: Watching their significant others play, despite the fact that they didn't really understand why or what the point of the game even was, or cheerleading, which was the woman's key to climbing the school's social ladder by basically being a sexual extra draw for men who might occasionally lose interest in pretending to be playing the game from the comfort and safety of the stands. Then, something happened. Women starting actually watching sports, and from that grew women playing sports. But why? Why did women suddenly pick up an interest in sports?

I think women originally started picking up an interest in sports as another way to please their men. Think about it. Ever since the advent of the television set, men would crowd around it for hours a day, ignoring everything else in the world — their kids, their responsibilities, and, yes, their women — for hours. Women used to beg and plead the men to stop watching so many games and pay more attention to them, but I think they just gave up. They decided to stop fighting them and start joining them. They started watching the games with the men, started paying attention to the rules, the stats, the teams, etc., so they could talk to their men while they feigned interest in the games. Now it's just grown into a societal norm that women should know at least something about sports if they ever want to capture the attention of a man, and girls just accept that and start learning to like the institution of sports.

Now, wouldn't you think that Feminists would have a problem with women demeaning themselves by actively learning to enjoy a worthless activity just to make themselves more appealing to a prospective male suitor? Isn't that about as bad as women demeaning themselves in the porn industry just to fulfill some man's bizarre fantasy? Either way women are trying to change their nature to try to compete in a male-dominated society.

Most of the women who like to watch or participate in sports are going to throw a fit, telling me that women enjoying sports is nothing like women working in the porn industry because they actually enjoy sports. Well, a lot of the women in porn enjoy their jobs, too. Just because a woman likes to have sex and happens to find a job where they can get paid for doing what they like, it's no excuse in the eyes of the Feminist army, so why should it be if a woman actually likes sports? Besides, sports are a hundred times more boring than pornography. Also, what of all the women who like pornography? There are probably a lot more women that pornography truly appeals to than there are who sports truly appeals to, and I also think there's probably more men who enjoy watching women play sports for more reasons than they enjoy watching men play sports than there are women who enjoy watching men play sports for more reasons than they enjoy watching women play sports. Men's sports just often have athletic men in tight pants. Women's sports have athletic women in tight pants, who run while possessing breasts, and who often make orgasmic grunts during certain sporting events.

So I think the Feminists need to pay more attention to deterring women from liking sports. Sports is a male-dominated industry, and the women are just being drawn into it just to please the men. The worst part is that the men have even found a way to make the women think they're doing it willingly through slow, subtle societal brainwashing. The Feminists need to jump on this bandwagon because it's far more widespread an epidemic than women demeaning themselves in pornography. The porn industry is still quite an underground business that takes in a vastly smaller amount of unsuspecting women than the sports industry, which is operating right out in the open, and taking in an overwhelming number of women throughout the world.

Did you ever think maybe women began to like sports because they began to be allowed to play them AS WELL as to simply cheer for the men playing in them? Just a thought, but before women were allowed to play sports in school, cheerleading was all they had to contribute to that culture. Now, since the womans rights movement, they can get involved by actually playing a fucking sport of thier own, therefore they take a greater interest in the entire process, including watching the games (rather than just dancing around for some jerk like you). Personally? I think youre an asshole.

Blozor says: Did you ever think that this entire entry was written with complete tongue-in-cheek sarcasm? That as soon as I published it, I laughed at the thought that I'd just written one of the most insane posts yet? That maybe it's not Feminism that I was specifically campaigning against, but the entirely overrated sports industry in this country? That it's bad enough that men have to be completely mesmerized by this banal activity, but now women have to join in with the oversensationalization, too? Just something to mull over.

Blozor says: Did I say that I necessarily cared that cheerleaders dance around for, as you so objectively rationalized it, "jerks like [me]"? No, in order to see cheerleaders, I'd actually have to watch a fucking game, which I consider up there with counting blades of grass, on the list of mundane wastes of my time.

You said: "Personally? I think youre an asshole."

Blozor says: Wow, where did this come from? Did I ever insult you, as a person? Are you narcissitic enough to believe that anyone really gives a shit what you think, personally, about me? I mean, I could have left this an objective, impersonal argument, but you brought personal shots into this, so the gloves are off. Still, I'm not going to sink to the depths of common indecency that it seems is so easy for yourself, as well as 99.9% of the Internet-using world, to fall victim to. I'm just going to leave you with some timely advice: Whenever you are trying to make an intelligent, rational argument, your entire position is entirely eradicated as soon as you call your opponent a doody-head.

I think that the opinions of anonymous posters should never be taken seriously. If you have an opinion, have the balls to stand up for it. Otherwise, don't expect anyone to care.

Oh, I'm sorry. I used the expression "have the balls." Was that offensive to women?

No, if you go by Lita Ford's definition, women's "balls" (re: breasts) are quite larger than men's.
