"Someone at NBC Apparently Approved This Creepy, Porny Video of Female Olympians.

Have you barfed yet today? Get thee to a drain of some kind before watching this video the pervs over at NBC have put together in order to show their appreciation for Olympic bodies of the 2012 London Games.

Unfortunately, to NBC, showcasing the "Bodies in Motion" of the XXX Olympiad means taking footage of conventionally attractive female athletes competing in sports that require them to be scantily clad, slowing it way down as the camera lovingly caresses their butts, breasts, and bouncing ponytails, and playing some soft core porn music over it.

Apparently NBC is too busy ...[Snip]

These are media mind control subliminals. The homosexual creepy 100% f@g tax agenda is shoved in our throats. “We are the world, we are the pimps, we are the children of satan.” Yes we can, ha ha ha! (sarc off)

Francois Hollande is getting his 75% tax in, Europe is trying to flex its Nazi tax muscles... the deal and cinch is in, yeah!!

The clipped haired mean faced bull that wrote the article apparently has some real issues with the female body. Pretty much she’ll get the same reaction from me that I give to the beauty pagent protesters:

“If the women in these contests did not volunteer to participate, they would not be in a position to be front of a bunch a guys dressed in a swimsuit.” Of course, the swimsuit reference in this case is only applicable to the beach volleyball teams.

I forced my self to watch it twice in case I missed something. Horrible. I’m going to watch it again to make sure all my talking points are correct if anyone asks me about it. =Wb

The only thing porny about it was the awful 79s sound track. There’s nothing particularly objectionable about the video itself.

As A male I like watch fit athletic women.

BTW all of the women in the video are NOT GUILTY.

Don’t know why anyone would object.

I did not see anything “pornographic” about it.

Yea, some of the gals are beauties (it’s in the eye of the beholder), but their athletic good looks, athletic attire, athletic activity nor any of the camera shots suggested “porn”.

Replace nothing but gender of the athletes, and would anyone have found the video inappropriate? I don’t think so.

I think someone (where ever the objections came from) and someone at NBC were actually being “sexist” in having the video pulled.

Healthy and fit is beautiful. I seriously saw nothing objectionable but, unlike the dyke who wrote this, I am very comfortable, with my sexuality.

No swimmers.
No divers.

Clearly, no real attempt to find scantily clad women.

Nothing pornographic that I could see.

The volleyball shots were a bit "cheeky", but then with the skimpy bikini bottom outfits and the type of activity occurring, that's not surprising.

Actually, in few shots, like the hurdles, the music/video shots did indeed show some interesting fluid motion scenes of all the women racing in close quarters (and the angle of the camera).

Not sure the motive of the writer, and I'm certainly no fan of NBC, but I don't see any pornography.

What say the ladies of FR?

As long as they didn't include men's platform diving...no.

>Don’t know why anyone would object.

1. Unable to perform like they do

2. Unable to look like they do.

3. Unable to sleep with the above mentioned.

If it had made by lesbians, not only would it have been considered art, but also it would have been paid for by the taxpayers.

Obviously the queers in the distribution department had a hissy fit.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

Yeah, they all had great butts but, unless it's sports bras or something, it appears athletics seem to dramatically affect the boobage factor.

Am I crying?

I can't believe I've found someone else who knows about Tapeheads. I can get a few friends who have seen it to howl with laughter when I just say "production value" about an attractive woman.

Well, that perspective - is it lewd - might depend on the gender of the viewer...no?
