Re: Sexism, the empty calories of fitness marketing.

People want to fit in...The Crossfit culture is a sub-culture that reflects certain elements of western society.

Personally I think it's a self-image thing, not saying you can't be a confident woman and wear a shirt that says, "my snatch is better than yours..." just saying your confidence may not come from a place that a guy's confidence would come from.

Does that make sense? I mean, because in our society guys aren't objectified as much as women.

This isn't an absolute, there are always exceptions, but in general in our society a guy's sexiness comes from his confidence, a women's confidence comes from her sexiness...Again not ALWAYS on either count, but this is how it seems to me.

Where does a guy's confidence come from?

Either testosterone, or alcohol, or a combination of both.

Re: Sexism, the empty calories of fitness marketing.

Ahh, the classic case of "You have to clean it before you jerk it" vs "How does my snatch look?"

Usually job (status), $$, or how sexy his girl is. I said it wasn't absolutes though, so I hope no one is offended by that, there are plenty of people who get their confidence from a belief in themselves...that isn't what we were discussing here though.

Not offended,but not funny

I saw one that said W.H.O.R.E. I forget what it meant but something like Work Hard or (and then I forgot the rest)

I wouldn't wear that shirt bc its not funny, its not clever and if a women was offended by it, I wouldn't blame them. Though personally that sorta stuff never offends me. But nothing offends me.

I also think since some of the girls lift more than me and I'm pretty new, I'm not in the position to call them whores!

Re: Sexism, the empty calories of fitness marketing.

altho i do not get personally offend by much of this rubbish it is fundamentally a subtle putting of a woman in her place ie all the innuendos relate to female sexuality in crude and base terms...... this does not occur with male innuendo... that relates to male vigourous sexual prowess..

off my soap box now
