Women’s Cycling: This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

…because, seriously, we can’t have women discussing women’s cycling, with women, without having everything become somehow sexualized or a reference to body image issues and booty, along with a gratuitous calling of a female “baby.” Because, you know, WIMMIN.

I could have hoped that the League’s new “equity council,” aka “hey look we know some non-white male people who bike!” would help some with this, but apparently not. Or apparently I’m the only one who is made to itch, seriously, by this crap.
