The NFL cheerleaders are next

Formula One abolishes its grid girls:
Walk-on grid girls were axed from Formula One today as the motorsport followed the move within darts to get rid of glamour women. F1 bosses said they will no longer use grid girls from this current season which starts in Australia in two months' time because it is not in keeping with their 'brand values'.

The move mirrors the Professional Darts Corporation's decision last week to end the long-established practice of women escorting male players to the stage. The changes will also apply to other races which take place on grand prix weekends and will come into play from the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 25.

Sean Bratches, F1 managing director of commercial operations, said: 'Over the last year we have looked at a number of areas which we felt needed updating so as to be more in tune with our vision for this great sport. While the practice of employing grid girls has been a staple of Formula 1 Grands Prix for decades, we feel this custom does not resonate with our brand values and clearly is at odds with modern day societal norms. We don't believe the practice is appropriate or relevant to Formula 1 and its fans, old and new, across the world.'

London-based charity the Women's Sport Trust had previously put pressure on F1 to drop its walk-on girls along with boxing and cycling, after the decision in darts. It tweeted last week: 'We applaud the Professional Darts Corporation moving with the times and deciding to no longer use walk-on-girls. Motor racing, boxing and cycling... your move.'
It doesn't matter who you are, how successful you are, or what you do. Sooner or later, SJWs are coming for you and your job.

Given that the NFL is even more converged than F1, can you really doubt that the league will be forcing the teams to get rid of their cheerleading squads soon?  After all, they are at odds with what we are reliably informed are modern day societal norms.

Note that as with GamerGate and ComicsGate, it is the SJWs in the media who are driving this effort to disemploy pretty women. And you know ESPN is going to be all over this next season; it's going to be the next great cause for them.

I think the girls are great, they get paid and it's a job for them. I haven't got a problem. But I do have a big problem in the age we live in – I've got the BBC, ITV and Sky, my three UK broadcasters, saying to me this is not part of their editorial policy any longer. They do not want to show the walk-on girls on television.
- PDC Chairman Barry Hearn

Men have been neutered to the point that at the slightest perceived threat, they retreat and cave. Men have a voice too, but you never hear of any groups telling these bitches to fuck off. Women based groups threaten advertisers, brag about their large numbers, and are never met head on by resistance. Just once it would be nice to see men join together and silence these twats.

The Los Angeles Convention Center banned skimpy outfits with too much bared skin for the booth babes at E3 a little while back. You have to be 18 to enter E3 so it can't be for the children. And the Convention Center has at least 2 porn trade shows, 3 if you count the gay porn one, so go figure. The girls did get around the skin thing by wearing skin tight lycra suits.

I can see the NFL discontinuing them, I remember usually once or twice a half the TV camera would pan the cheerleader squad while the sponsors appear on screen. Now the only time you see them is when they happen to get caught in the shot of the game action. Some team will argue that the furry, err, mascot is an adequate 'good will ambassador' for their team - and will save the team money and hassle to boot (real reason).
College (and high school) cheerleaders are definitely much harder (if not impossible) to do away with because they've set up the cheerleader squads as 'athletes' with competitions of their own. In fact, the main complaint is that what they're doing is more dangerous than the athletes they're supposed to be rooting for.

SJW's are the dorky loser kids from middle school and high school who resented the successful kids. They are the ugly girls who hated watching the cute boys flirting with the cheerleaders. They are the boys who never played sports and resented the athletes who got to go out with the cheerleaders.

SJW's never grew out of their childish resentment of the "cool" kids and want to bring everybody else down into their misery. SJW's won't be happy until the whole world is as ugly as they are.

For all the professed concern over hiring practices that are unfair to women, I see amazingly little coverage of a well-documented barrier in that area: 20-something women in HR/recruitment have been shown to discriminate against pretty, young, female applicants.

It will be interesting to see if the Truth is ever brought out about the real hard-core feminists and the Satanic filth they have been up to all along. The truth is always inverted with these people, and more so with these women, and behind the scenes, they are even more anti-female than they are anti-male. Helicopters are needed, but this is where we may fall short, and let most of these degenerate females off too easy.

I want to live in a world adorned by happy, beautiful, feminine women sitting on race cars in bikinis or dancing on basketball courts during timeouts. But I also want to live in a world where those same girls are escorted home to their families by their two-tour-marine coach, who himself is happily married and faithful to his wife and children.

Maybe that world never existed, I don't know. But it sure as hell would be a nice world.

More wrecking up the sports for men, buzzkills. The war on beauty is ever present. Or perhaps there are some women on a lame social kill joys board someplace wanting the women to compete with the men as in drive versus be pretty, quiet and walk around in nice attire.

This week a current event came out RE Doritos, these trans pharma gmo obesogenic chemical chips of some kind, I dont know, but I did my research, I found them at the store they literally exist triangle chips which has to be evil.

The message was clear; women want a quiet chip that doesn't make noise, well course they are ashamed for crunching their very self destruction that potentiates into a eventual weight gain then heart attack. The body acceptance movement seeks validation for ugly. Just like when obnoxious atheists announce often how atheistic they are they all want validation, no validation for that or ugly.

Overall this is a great move to repel beautiful women more, like Trump said, "and your mother voted for me,"

Anyway, if the league was smart, it would realize by the time ESPN's contract is up for renewal, ESPN won't be willing or able to pony up anything close to the "we have to stop the cord-cutting" bonanza the NFL got from the last contract round.

ESPN is done when the current contract ends. Same with the other networks, the gambit failed and they're no longer money spigots. Leagues will need to figure out their own distribution channels. NFL Network is next up...

@62-What you're describing--pornography, etc.--doesn't celebrate beauty. I don't know how beautiful individual Grid Girls are, but that's really what's being attacked here: the display of feminine beauty.

Now, some feminists actually care about forms of "exploitation" not directly tied to beauty, like pornography, prostitution, or strip clubs. At least they used to.* But this is a different sort of thing.

Put as simply as I can, pornography eats away at civilization, and our civilization is bad. Therefore, pornography not a big deal. (At least not anymore.) Grid Girls, debutante balls, beauty pageants, etc. even if they don't live up to high standards, are supposed to celebrate feminine beauty, innocence, the flowering of womanhood, class and charm and so forth. All very bad things.

All things feminists are at war with.

*Right now the "social justice" issue in porn is forcing reluctant girls to go interracial, because equality. The ones who don't do black guys (blacks are the focus of attention, as usual) I assume demure for business reasons, rather than other objections.

I think they will face a lot more challenges getting rid of the cheerleaders. Cheerleading is now considered a sport and most schools now have cheerleading teams.

Given the role of cheerleaders at football games, it's harder to just portray them as eye candy for men.

OTOH, it's not like feminists or soy boys watch darts or F1. The average F1 fan is not a progressive. Given the fact they burn fossil fuels, the people who support ditching the Grid Girls probably support banning the sport altogether!
I don't know why these organizations pander to people who oppose them outright.
