    That's what I was thinking. Sagan's hoping she'll slap FC

    Sagan released this statement: Was not my intention to disrespect women today on the podium. Just a joke, sorry if someone was disturbed about it.

    LOL

    Some of my friends on facebook are upset.

    Martin XXXXX shared de koers's photo.
    he could easily be slapped with a sexual assault or harrassment charge, and for press to be making light of it says a lot about our culture and its morals sadly. saddened.

    Yes, it was an ******* move. But that woman is an adult and can take care of herself. Selective outrage is stupid, if you are gonna get pissed at women being objectified, you should be pissed about it every time women are exploited by this male dominated sport.

    Otherwise, you are a hypocrite too scared or too simple to evaluate your own twisted morals.

    Have a nice day.

    she signed up for objectification perhaps, but probably not for having someone grab her ass. big difference is that the latter can probably cost her employer a lot of money and reputation if she sues for sexual harrassment. dressing seductively and agreeing to hold an umbrella or pose for a photo, (even a naked one) is not consent to physical contact.

    ???

    I am not talking about Sagan's behavior. I am talking about the selective outrage associated with Sagan's behavior that I don't read about when women are paid to use sex to sell shitty bike components at trade shows for example.

    The fact that for you the biggest problem with Sagan is that the podium girl might get mad and bring a harassment costing the sponsor money is a case in point of where people's priorities really are.

    Here, a professional writer says the same thing, only with much more tact and sophistication than I am capable of...

    It's hard not to draw the conclusion that the institutionalized sexism of the "podium girls" convention is of a piece with entrenched attitudes that relegate women's racing to "poor relation" status. Cycling is a sport that loves to celebrate its traditions, but this is one it ought to leave by the roadside.

    I don't give him a pass. He is a professional athlete and should realize that the standard for his public conduct is a lot higher than that. Very foolish

    Edit: I decided against my previous comment.

    I'll just say that I'm running out of outrage.
