Slippery slope. There is NOTHING wrong with admiring an athletes physique whether they are male or female. I’ll be totally honest. I don’t like soccer. I don’t get it. But, I will watch that shit everyday and twice on Sunday for ONE reason. Damn those are fine looking men!

I think the difference lies in one thing: Men will work on their physique and take pride in it. They boast about it. They put shirtless selfies on dating profiles. A guy with a hard body will jump at a chance to take his shirt off and show off his hard work. When we, as women, drool (which we totally do because we’re human) it boost their ego. They love it. Women on the other hand… Yes, there are many female athletes that take pride in their physique but I think someone else hit the nail on the head. Women work VERY hard at being taken seriously as an athlete that for a commentator mention her physique would be deflating and a distraction to her talent.
