she does it right
What about Gee? Should we condemn him also?
To those who think what Gee did was really great, go and ask your husbands what they think. Then ask your Dads. Then think about the way you’d like your sons to be viewed.Posted 4 years ago
I’d like my nephews to amount to more than a pair of balls on a bike, maybe I’m too fussy.mikewsmithSubscriberTeam Hurtmore wrote:
Whats the fuss on either side? So a woman’s breasts bounce when riding a bike – there’s a shock. How is that either titillating (sorry unintentional, but too good to edit) or annoying/disgusting. When will we get over this kind of stuff???
So why shove a camera down there and make it the feature of the entire video? When will we get over this? probably in the next couple of centuries at this rate.Posted 4 years agoratherbeintobagoSubscriber
I’m with Crikey on this, too. When did casual sexism become acceptable again? Seems much more prevalent than five or ten years ago.

I’m fairly sure women don’t go round ogling men’s parts…Posted 4 years agoDezBSubscriber
Have you lot seen the parallel thread under the video?

Utterly overwhelmed by all your kind comments on the video. For those that like it, many thanks… for those that don’t, we apologise…. It was just a bunch of guys with a bit of time and kit, making a little old video for some friends who are trying to sell a few t’shirts… As for the star of the show.. she likes riding a bike…. purely for fun.. no practicing or competing… and trust me, is very comfortable with her sexuality and inner well being… anyway we are well into shooting the sequel, so keep a look out early December…….

Doesn’t really do MTBing an any favours IMO. Yes its harmless enough “fun” focussing on the contents of a woman’s T-shirt in an effort to flog said T-shirts to Blokes? I’m sure it’ll be a roaring success…
But then of course what’s the message it sends to women? That womens MTBing is fine so long as you’re not a minger, not too body conscious and happy to get your tits out for the lads?
I don’t think that will attract more female participation, if the woman in the vid loves riding why not focus on that? Yeah show her wearing the brand, fair enough if the activity requires some close cut clothing but focusing on the fun bags just helps to trivialize the idea of women riding mountain bikes.
When you do wander over to their website, it turns out “Gravity mafia” are yet another printed T-shirts, hoodies and jerseys outfit, hardly an actual mountain biking clothing brand, probably just another bunch of Graphics students with a couple of un-original ideas, doubt that they’ll be about for too long…Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
Yes its harmless enough fun
But it isn’t.
My wife gave up running in our local park because she got fed up and intimidated by men making comments about her breasts.
My daughter got fed up and intimidated by men making suggestions to her as she walked home from college.
This kind of small scale, low level grinding sexism and misogyny is one end of a spectrum that sees women considered as less than people, as objects and so on.
Like I said, ask your wives, ask your mums, ask your daughters what kind of effect this has on them.
Then ask yourself what it must be like to be a 14 year old girl in the back of a taxi, late at night, being taken to see the drivers ‘friends’.
It’s easy to pass it off as a bit of fun, it’s easy to say it’s harmless, it’s easy to be a small innocuous part of the problem rather than be a part of the solution.Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
The difference is that it’s no longer men exploiting them and the women are in control
Some women appear to be in control, but the number who move on from being photographed naked would suggest that it ain’t all that as a career choice.
…and what about the women who aren’t in control?
I’d like my daughter to feel that she can walk down our street with being asked if she wants shagging, if that’s ok?Posted 4 years ago
