In this society where a woman's cup size is more important than her mind, it is to me, no wonder that this ludicrous rule has been instituted upon female athletes. Just as women are breaking through in the sports world and redefining healthy lifestyles for women everywhere, they are exploited once again. Their bodies used to increase fan participation I assume. As soon as any progress is made, it seems something must be done to thwart it. I thought we, as a society, were approaching a new level of consciousness regarding respect of the female in our culture.

The idea that they are being forced to do this is evidence enough that it isn't right or just. " This is true but does that mean that females should wear bikinis because it's the standard that many other women conform to No, they are serious athletes and by making them wear these outfits it makes them look silly and rips away the respect they've worked so hard for.
