The Cavinder Twins, the emerging oligarchs of women’s college basketball, aren’t the best players. But they might be the best-looking.
What’s the problem? They won the genetic lottery on multiple fronts. Imagine if Anna Kounikova was playing tennis in this day and age. She never won a tournament and was making huge coin even pre-internet. Sound to me like the only problem is pure jealousy.
The more our society pushes for various types of equality, the more it becomes clear what people ACTUALLY want...which is hot blonde chicks in bikinis.
Would could have guessed? 🤷♂️
CNN should consider a series about that...might help with ratings.
"As Victoria Jackson, the former professional runner, told The Free Press, everyone knows “sexiness and attractiveness” are critical to scoring NIL deals, and it is “unfair.” It reminded her of her running days. “You would notice that somebody would get a big deal when she was middling, at best, and happened to be good-looking" - This statement sums up the entire conundrum of "fairness" and "privilege". Some people are more talented. Some people are naturally more attractive - and yes that gives them an advantage - just like IQ does. Weird that in sectors like acting or movies that "good-looking" is not seen as an unfair advantage. Just how many Quasimodo male actors have become star material with serial hit movie opportunities? Take a seat on the "good looking and talented people have an advantage" line of thought.
The author called out blond at least five times. I am guessing if their hair was black, no mention would have been made of it. Next in line behind white men for the guillotine: white women.
I'm uncomfortable with the concept of an "influencer." Kids become immersed in social media to an unhealthy degree and live in the neurochemical bath it creates. Then along comes someone with the skill of appearing to be able to swim effortlessly in that bath, indeed to thrive in it. They say "you can be like me, just buy this" when all the time we know for most kids, spending their lives in that world will ruin them, not make them successful. It is pure exploitation, and given the dopamine kick that the kids are constantly looking for, influencers are no better, or much different, from drug dealers.
- the market wants what the market wants;
- young people are becoming increasingly vapid;
- do away with college sports, it’s just a distraction. Create jv pro leagues for kids just out of high school.
The Free Press has a hot girl problem
I see no problem here. I see two young women striking while the iron is hot. Just like Lia Thomas did when he realized he could have more success competing against other females than he did males. They allowed him into the ladies locker rooms to swing his thing around. When institutions stop taking things seriously why should anyone else? These women aren’t just being ogled by men with beer bellies. There are plenty of young girls and women looking up to them as inspiration on how to best play the hand you’re dealt. I can’t stand social media influence culture. But it’s here and it’s lucrative for those who know how to work it. They didn’t create this current culture, but they’re taking the best advantage of them moment their in. Go for it ladies.
I still can't figure out why the pouty fishmouth thing is considered attractive.
I can’t EVEN with these twins! (Rant alert!)
SEX SELLS! Full stop. I am so OVER otherwise talented and intelligent women spouting an “empowerment message” when they are basically profiting off a version of “the oldest profession”! And then they go and bring Jesus into it?!?! As we are wont to say here in the South, bless their hearts, and I add: Lord, have mercy! Truly!
It's narcissistic and depraved to sexualize one's self to make money. Some people are so poor all they have is money - Bob Marley.
We are living in VERY vulgar times. The twins contribute it.
Yeah, this is disappointing. The whole world a "hot girl" problem, but I guess some people would prefer "genderless machines" to humans. He did get in a nice Woke slur on "dudes with paunches and six-packs of beer", though, so there's that.
Oh Ethan, what's the matter? Have multiple blonde women turned you down for a date? The NCAA was not being body positive in fining those women, they were just hammering women. It's something they seem to do a lot of by allowing men to compete with women. And then they get upset when women empower themselves. There are a lot of NCAA football coaches who have done a lot worse than the Miami basketball coach and they were never touched .
By the way, don'tworry about the women who aren't blondes on the basketball court, if they're really good they get basketball deals. If they're really smart and pretty, they get Instagram deals. Capitalism works.
Now I'll let you get back to trying to find a date.
The Free Press has a dud every once in a while, and this one was it. News flash, beautiful women get attention. Even worse, pretty Christian blonde women get more attention than everyone else. The whole premise of this article is out of the woke, diseased mind. You can read the author's tut-tutting that people are drawn to beauty. Arch Manning is from a famous family, and he gets money ( another sign of the wokeness of the author is that he passes over Bronny James as if he is #1 due to who his Dad is, but that doesn't make for a sinister story.) At the end of the day, so what. I wonder why this is a problem. It's the Tik Tok culture. And finally, the women are good decent women who are into fitness, fun, and living an above-board lifestyle. Is that a problem? Poor Ethan was infected at college and ESPN, hoping he can educate and grow out of this.
“dear NCAA, scared that female athletes have value?” Hell yes the corrupt and domineering NCAA is afraid athletes will be able to have some control over their own lives. See, the NCAA is a monopoly and only concerned about making money for themselves. Everyone else just suck it up for the benefit of the NCAA.
If blondes make the most money and are in demand, believe that's called the market place of demand. Right or wrong, people have the right to choose.
Stanford that hot bed of woke - VanDerveer has fought for decades for women to be able to compete on a level playing field with men—to have the same athletic opportunities, to be taken seriously. Yeah, like have guys say they are women and competing against women. That king of fairness Stanford that helped lead a young soccer player to suicide over woke rules? Stupid is as stupid does.
Athletes are finding that being used to make money for the unknown leaders of the NCAA is not any sort of freedom and they want to make some money if they can find an audience. Nothing wrong with that, other than pissing off the users of other peoples talents. If someone wants to follow someone and spend their money (which I personally think isn't the smartest thing) it is definitely their choice.
Is this so different from Hollywood and the people there all trying to out do each other? Well but for the part they are not whoops having gown malfunctions to get clicks. If they are classy, good for them. If not, well good for them. Beats punching a clock for 8-10 hours a day. How about not making everything about race, hair color, or something to demand that you must watch Whoopie two hours a day to be none racist.
NCAA , voiced support for a federal law that would regulate NIL deals, including a registry of deals, agents, and contract standards. Oh yeah, gets the feds involved, not like they haven't screwed up almost everything they touch. How about keep the feds away from everyone and let people live their own lives? No one needs the feds to tell them how to live their own lives, well unless they are law breakers and then we must give them special treatment for whatever they say happened almost 200 years ago.
Sex sells. Next?
