The cheek of it! What if every Olympic sport was photographed like beach volleyball?

People like women’s bottoms. This is explicitly clear when the media covers the women’s beach volleyball. An article on this sport is seldom featured without a photo of a solitary, unidentified posterior in a bikini. This sort of female objectification has existed for so long that few think to question the audacity of photographers who reduce world class athletes to anonymous body parts. Therefore we felt the need to tip our hats to Nate Jones of the US metro who has highlighted inequality this with his article ‘What if every Olympic sport was photographed like beach volleyball?’ showing sporting male appendages. The results are hilarious, with bits of junk flying all over the their trunks (the mid squat shot is the money maker). The point of the article could be the absurd male fixation with isolated body parts, or the fact that male nether regions have significantly inferior aesthetic appeal. Either way, we tittered.
