Check out men being asked the same stupid questions as female athletes (VIDEO)

Joseph McCormick November 10, 2015

A new video shoes the absurdity of some of the questions asked of female athletes, by turning them on their head.

The media has come under scrutiny recently for asking questions like “give us a twirl”, like was asked of tennis star Eugenie Bouchard after a tough match at the Australian Open this year.

Comments about female althetes’ bodies, physical appearances, clothing choices and dating lives have been rife in the media, and on social media.

This video by Cover The Athlete, sees male athletes being asked those same very questions.

And the men featured seem outraged at the questions…

They are all based on real questions or comments made to or about female athletes.

“Something’s wrong with media coverage of female athletes,” the campaign states.

“Sexist commentary, inappropriate interview questions, and articles focused on physical appearance not only trivialises a woman’s accomplishments but also sends a message that her value is based on her looks, not her ability. And it’s much too commonplace.”
