Women Hate Watching Sports, According to ‘Men’s Health’/These Stock Photos
If there is only one truth in the world, it is this: we women hate watching sports, right? Seriously, have you ever met a woman that enjoyed watching sports? Is it possible that I am one? Certainly not! Not possible! At least according to Men's Health and stock photographers.
Yes, Men's Health had an entire article about "Talking Sports With Uninterested Women."
I say "had" because they've either removed it or have it strangely hidden behind some sort of Internet barrier so that I can no longer access it. Thanks, Men's Health. Apparently having a vagina means I don't want to read your articles, either.
OK, so they probably just decided that it was a bad idea to post such an article and took it down, but I like my explanation better.
I told a guy that I played fantasy football and he looked at me like I had just told him I was a unicorn. Girls play fantasy football, too, bro. And some of us actually know what we're doing.
But, it's not just magazines that assume that we ladies don't enjoy sports. Nope. There are a TON of stock photos out there of dude-bros swigging beer, high-fiving, and yelling at the television while [insert sporting event] plays and women stand in the background looking utterly disgusted and/or bored. Like these:
Let me break it down for you folks that think that we women who enjoy sports are few and far between, or worse yet, non-existent. We exist! Some of us are bigger sports fans than you! I have a girlfriend who could tell you the batting average for damn near every player on the Tigers this season. Why? Because she loves the sport!
The other night I told a guy that I played fantasy football and he looked at me like I had just told him I was a unicorn. Girls play fantasy football, too, bro. And some of us actually know what we're doing.
