"Mirrors make a room uncosy"
Hmmm...I need to start watching cricket again.
Oh, BROAD. Never have I felt so sympathetic for a bowler flayed by Indian batting. [Although that may have something to do with my increasingly hard-to-sustain antipathy for Y Singh.] He took it like a trooper, too.And he's pretty.Fabulous choice, mon p'tit chou! I should recommence too, yes?
Oh, delightful.I've been reading your other Project:Objectify posts too...much scrumptiousness. It's kinda amazing, not to mention revealing, that for an attractive female sports star to be a pinup, and to have her body endlessly critiqued and on display, is a given, while to do the same with male sports stars is unexpected. It's like the media thinks all straight/bi women are blind. :PAnd yeah, Rafael Nadal being younger than me is the scariest thing in the world. but... *paws*
Falstaff - He is pretty, is he not? In weeks to come I will hopefully be giving you more reasons to watch cricket.Ros - Why the Yuvraj hatred? I am generally apathetic. But I remember wishing it had happened to any bowler but this one. You must indeed recommence.Thene - we continue to approve of each other's taste in men!Also, I suspect it hasn't occurred to the media in general that women (of any sexual orientation) or gay/bi men might actually watch sports in the first place.
Just when I thought I'd given up on cricket!Male objectification is excellently subversive. The only trouble I think is that it doesn't carry exactly the same implication. The stature of men is made out to depend upon the number of women they have swooning over them, while it’s the reverse for women.But then again, I shouldn’t be complaining about eye-candy.
As we say around here, he gets the David Cassidy award for the week!(pardon me giving away my age, there! HAHA!)
Swatie - This is one of the things that Michele Barret gets right (it's so convenient that we've done the same lit course so I can reference things, isn't it?), yes, you can't simply reverse objectification and expect it to work the same way because of the sheer weight of the tradition of women being objectified. But hey, Project:Objectify is perhaps creating a tradition of male objectification, and we get to look at all these vastly pretty men while we do it, so...yeah. :DDaisy - *grin* I had to resort to google. It was a very...rewarding experience!
