Sexism in Sports Writing

Sexism in Sports Writing | Sports Facilities Management 3119537 | Scoop.it

This is a subject where I am like many others. I’m strongly opinionated and don’t say a lot because it’s a very political issue. Yes, you may feel free to be mad at me for taking the “Republicans buy shoes” stance. I’ll try and fix that.

Tammeh Treymayne aka @Mrs__NBA, who writes at The NBA Mistress and I got into a discussion on this subject. I was spurred by this recent piece by Kate Fagan over at ESPN – Recent events expose sexism in sports culture. Kate discusses the issues being a female beat writer — how the respect and access that comes to male sports reporters is lacking and more frighteningly, how we let that continue.

There’s a key that Kate and Tammeh have both hit on that we need to accept. Sports are sexist. Not just a little, not it’s getting better but there are still residual sexist trends from old eras. Sports are sexist. Listen to sports radio. Listen to how common it is to insult someone by calling them feminine. Watch the commercials that come up during your favorite sports game. Dr. Pepper bet hard on ‘it’s not for women’ campaign of Dr. Pepper 10 and promoted it heavily in sports media. Go to live sporting events and notice that the only way sports have found to include women is have them dance half naked when the game is stalled. A “watch the game” moment that startled me —  one cameraman’s job is apparently to just always aim for up the skirt angle shot of cheerleaders. So, let’s just start with this fact. The realm of sports is sexist. Its views towards women is that they are weak, or sexual objects and that the sports being played are not for them, at least not in an active role.

This article addresses the keeping the fans safe. Although it is important of maintaining good sight lines to see the game, keeping fans safe should also be a priority. Maintaining railing only to code seems to be out of date. Maybe when the code was established, the risk of them falling was lower. Raising the minimum height of the railings while still maintaining the line of sight for fans would be a good way to keep them safe while enjoying the game.
