Move Over Fellas: Fantasy Football is No Longer a Boys’ Club

I love everything about is post!!! And just to add fuel to the fire…. My office fantasy football league is run by a WOMAN!!! She sets up draft day and party and manages everything. Yep a woman does that!!! Did I mention I work in sports media? No? Lots of women talking sports, trading info about our favorite teams and getting into arguments with the “boys” over last weeks game. Yup women LOVING sports… What a concept!

The Scoop Sports

Hey Guys! Newsflash: Fantasy Football isn’t just for you dudes anymore. In 2013, over 6 million females were among the legions playing fantasy football.

That’s right. Women were in YOUR fantasy football leagues, fellas, with team names like Victorious Secret, Brady’s Baby or Cleats and Cleavage. AND I bet some of you even got your asses handed to you by a woman or two. WHO knew? Have you recovered from it yet?

So, dudes, you may now be asking yourselves, “Is nothing sacred? Why can’t I just go to my draft party with the bros and not have to worry about some chick out-strategizing me by getting the stud RB I want? And for the love of all that is holy and sacred on a Sunday, two minutes before kickoff, why MUST my significant other be adding and dropping WRs and trolling for the ‘it’…

Another thing I’m sick of: blaming fat women for our lack of clothing options

This is what I be screaming about every time I go shopping. If stores would just offer sensibly priced clothing for EVERYONE and not just the skinny perras, I’m sure business and profits (at least from my thick and curvy sistahs) would increase exponentially. There’s a whole market of women (and even men at their perspective clothing stores) that get alienated because we aren’t a size four and below. Society and the media put too much emphasis on the skinny and/or plastic and not enough on the curvy and voluptuous.

Anyway rants aside, I applaud this blogger for standing up for the real and curvy women of the world.

While I’m on a roll of ranting about things that piss me off, here’s another one: the recent trend of blaming the lack of plus size clothing options on the supposed buying habits of plus size customers. This piece in TIME, and this one on Fashionista are two examples, and they make me so viscerally angry that it’s hard to respond articulately–but I’ll try.

“[R]eal change for plus-size fashion will come when customers make more conscious purchasing decisions,” claims the TIME piece. Hahahahaha, no. Real change will come when companies realize that fat women are people and start making clothes in our size. It’s kind of ridiculous to insist that fat women’s shopping choices must be the issue, when our whole problem is that we don’t have enough options to choose from in the first place.

In the Fashionista article, a blogger named…

Just thought I would share a video from one of my favorite choreographers, Parris Goebel. 

If you don’t know who Parris Goebel is, please Google her because she’s amazing. She’s in her early 20s and she’s chasing her dreams and conquering the world through dance. 

Her dance company, The Royal Family based in New Zealand, are all beast dancers. From the youngstas to the varsity team. All of them dance amazingly! 

Anyway… as always Parris Goebel’s choreography blew my mind. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did. 

Thanks for reading…
