Subby, Jezebel isn't exactly known for its prudishness. When they criticize sexualizing something, it's usually about an inanimate object, like cars:
i.kinja-img.com
or vodka robots:
i.kinja-img.com

Maybe you've got them confused with some other website?

"Let her cradle you in the softness of her" is a sentence that starts well, but just ends in tears when it finishes with "highback reclining bucket seats."

The thing about these world cup players is....they are so international. I enjoyed the diverse depiction of humanity in motion though it seemed like Eastasia mysteriously missing.

It seems to me that the jerseys have become much more "fitted" than they used to be.

I'd let someone objectify me, but I'm a skinny, lazy dork slob.

So I thought about working out.  That was exhausting.

The few times I've been objectified were pretty rad.

Jezebel is one of those click-bait sites that pretends to care about Social Justice-y things, but that will usually post anything that can make money. It is a reputable social justice hub in the same way that the National Enquirer is a reputable news agency.

Hyperfit female athletes are hard to sexualize. 1% bodyfat doesn't leave any secondary characteristics.

Athletic men and women tend to to have pleasing body shapes compared to people who are not athletic. Jezebel gets a pass from me here, especially considering the other silliness they put out. This is more like a "Well, duh" than "This is an outrage!"

Though if they start stare-raping the men, I will be furious.
 
2014-06-16 08:20:22 PM
I think we can all agree that these are men, and men are technically people, so we should afford them the respect they deserve as the complex, reasoning beings that they are while we watch them kick a ball around a field and occasionally get undressed after goals.  However, there will always be some people who perpetuate ass-pinching culture and I support offering extra security details to escort these men to their cars after night games.

"Jolly good! I'm down with promoting equality. Let's have a discussion about men's body issues, and how muscle dysmorphia is a body image disorder that disproportionately affects men, yet it has been completely ignored by the feminist movement. In fact, articles such as this one continue to promote unrealistic male body images that cause sever psychological harm in men when they turn to drugs to obtain perfection"

That's one. There's also the Williams sisters if that grunt's your boat. Beach volleyball players just look like anorexia warnings. WNBA could be improved with better outfits, but they're about to go out of business. So, how is it not hard to sexualize hyperfit female athletes?

While that is 100% true, it is taken seriously by way too many people who instead of seeing it for what it is, jump on the outrage train. The net result is more people hating people they don't even know... and of course more cash for Gawker. The book Trust Me, I'm Lying goes in depth about how sites like Jezebel operate.

Feminists don't believe that men are people, so there in their world it's impossible to objectify men.

That's with a heck of a sports bra on as well.

I try to explain to women: lift weights, not just cardio. Unless you really, really,  really try to muscle up you won't. Your bodies are different, and you'll always look feminine at a healthy BMI.

In any case, thin isn't the goal, healthy is the goal.

I always thought it would be rather trivial to write a python script to replace the words man, men or male in Jezebel comments with woman, women, female, just to see what they sounded like when turned around.
