#!markdown Captions and photos were provided for by I did not want to make any reference to anyone specifically except SBC, and that's because she was in the original article that sparked this piece. And this piece isn't really about MTB, it's more of a general (sociological, perhaps) look at the present. It could be about anything but sport, really. It's just as much of a critique of us guys still applauding this type of thing and expecting women to sexualize themselves for us, as it is a critique of the women who pander to the old fashioned, base, cliched, misogynistic paradigm. The message that we send out, and which some of these girls also put out, is that women have to play up their sexuality if they want to get ahead. It's not true and I hope more people follow the example of the ones who don't.
