"Why do the women's costumes all do weird things around the boobs?"

"Why can't the men's costumes do the same thing with the ass area?"

I immediately jump to this, thinking "boobs!".

Then I remember - when was the last time you saw a figure skater (katrina witt gets a pass) with a great rack.

Nope - sorry...

Winter sports are ice cold until after the event, and then heat from body warmth and alcoholic beverages seems to be the prescribed remedy. How many condoms did these athletes wear out?

I'll bet all of them are shaved :(

Moose is right, most of these girls are pretty flat. OTOH, most skaters' behinds (M or F) are pretty well developed because of the musculature involved (breasts are mostly supported by ligaments), so there wouldn't be much difference between the sexes.

I do believe you're thinking of another part of the masculine anatomy

The Canadian girl whose mother died already had linebacker shoulders. The Russian ice dancers had the most hideous costumes for their free dance.

Witt's are fake. The girls have to keep their bodyfat down very low like ballet dancers.

If I surf by, I am invariably hooked. I have too much pride to ever look for such an event. Most winter sports are less compelling to watch than competitive ice fishing.

The female boobs are merely the vestiges of a time long ago when women where slavishly considered for the size of their "racks", as they used to put it back then.

The innumerable volume of boob photography found at some of the sites has led scientists to speculate that they must have been useful for the purpose of attracting a mate.

Indeed they even developed some sort of artificial boob. Paleontologists have found them in many burial sites thought to be of the common average women of the time.

Apparently they were not that expensive.

So when we see these decorations they are merely celebratory in nature.. a sign of women having overcome the unnecessary swelling obviously bred in over time to keep women as sex objects.. the decorations are in memory.. a sign that we will never forget ;)

Maybe the men could wear shorts?

You could ask the same question of most men.

I imagine the body stockings designed to keep their boobs from doing the normal thing for those positions - pop out - doesn't help.

Question you aksed: "Why can't the men's costumes do the same thing with the ass area?"

Because none of the men wore squatting plumber costumes?

March is woman awareness month.

I'm appalled.

I understand I missed some fabulous spectacle during the closing ceremony - enormous inflated beavers (yes), and a gigantic moose, too. Macy's Parade meets Pee-Wee's Playhouse? Gotta find some pictures of that stuff. I think I'll use one of those shots of the hockey players lying on the ice with cigars and beverages for my Desktop image for a while...

Making fun of figure skater costumes!?

Fish in a barrel

WAmom said...

Looking at those costumes made me wonder: how do they get pantyhose so the skate blade pokes out???

Several years ago I remember reading that some regular fashion designers were either going to or wanted to design skating outfits for the women. Probably a good idea.

Katarina Witt did more to get men to watch ice skating than any other woman.

I watched some of it because my wife watched. Kim Yu Na of South Korea was unbelievable.

(Witt's breasts were real, as her Playboy photos show; they may not be now, but were then and apparently her maturation caused problems while performing.)
