10. The "they should wear what they want" crowd

Paying zero attention to the complaints by women athletes about rules requiring they wear tiny uniforms to get higher ratings.

Funny how wearing "what they want" only applies to that which satisfies the male gaze. Like all sports, the uniform is determined by the governing association. That shouldn't exactly be news to them. Do they suppose NFL and NBA players wear whatever they want?

Those threads are so tired.
