Top 10 Ways Sports Illustrated Disrespects Women

10. Sports Illustrated disrespects women through sex-discriminatory coverage of women’s sports. (Fewer than 10 percent of Sports Illustrated pages are devoted to women’s athletic achievements.)

9. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by displaying demeaning stereotypes of female sexuality. The swimsuit issue features women models posed not as athletes of strength, skill, and endurance but as playthings–in costumes no one could possibly swim in competitively.

8. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue disrespects women by showing women’s primary value to be their value as sex objects.

7. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by photographing their bodies as if they are merely body parts–breasts, buttocks, and crotches.

6. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by encouraging boys and young men to view women as sex toys and by turning voyeurism into a sport.

5. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue disrespects women by imitating an idea of women that originates in pornography. Mimicking magazines like Playboy and Penthouse, Sports Illustrated spreads out women’s bodies on the page for male “readers” to ogle at.

4. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by numbing men to women’s humanity.

3. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by exhibiting women to men as the “other”–as if women were a different species from the “real” athletes who are men.

2. Sports Illustrated disrespects women by sending a message to girls and young women that no matter how much they excel in athletics, all that matters is how they look to men.

1. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue disrespects women by directly contradicting Time-Warner’s corporate hype, which claims the magazine stands for serious sports journalism and respects the ability and dignity of women and girls in athletics. If that were true, where is the magazine with all the scantily clad men wearing nothing but Speedos?

10. Sports Illustrated is a magazine similar to Popular Mechanics in that is shows what is popular. Women’s sports doesn’t meet the criteria. I don’t know any stats, but I would doubt less than 10% of the sports market is womens sports, therefore less than 10% would be dedicated to womens sports.
9. This is a magazine that has a target audience of men. Men like to see scantily clad good looking women. This only happens once a year, but it is greatly appreciated. If InStyle wants to have a hot men issue that would be appropriate, and no one would complain.
8. Ditto
7. Ditto
6. Ditto
5. Ditto
4. Looking at hot women numbs men to women’s humanity? Really? That is one of the more inane things I have heard in a very long time.
3. No, Sports Illustrated caters to men that prefer to read about the sports they watch and look at pretty women.
2. The message it should send to female athletes is do it for the love of the game no matter if you are getting paid as much to do it or if you are being watched.
1. Time-Warner’s CEO is about the bottom line. It is about serious popular sports 11 out of 12 issues. If female athletes want more press, figure out a way to get a larger market.

In the mean-time, shut up.

Saw a group of what I call ‘groupies’ constantly overrunning Twitter to the magazine to make Anne V the new SI model.

Whoever gets the coveted title will be fine by me.
