This music video sets women in sports back yet another 40 years.
Ironically, Drake played a wheelchair-bound jock on the show Degrassi High: The Next Generation. You would think years of playing Jimmy Brooks would give him insight into the challenges of being taken seriously as an athlete when you’re different (in his case, being in a wheelchair; in women’s case, being, you know, women).
Here’s what I glean from the video.
1. Only unattractive women are good at sports.
2a. Women in sports, however, aren’t worth watching unless they are attractive, because
2b. women are meant to be gazed at.
3. A woman’s whole is the sum of her parts…the bigger the parts, the better the woman.
4. Women shouldn’t bother working at a sport, they should just wear skimpy outfits and focus on being cute (oh, and flexible).
