Aaron’s word of inspiration this week is needle.
So we all know that the Olympics have started in Tokyo. I have been watching it while I have been packing my life up here in Toronto. Honestly, I packed for an hour and a half yesterday and I’ll do about another hour today and I’m done HAHA and then dismantle furniture tomorrow. But that’s no the point! Focus up T!
So in just the little bit that I have been watching, it has already been talked about that one player had to withdraw due to using illegal drugs of some sort and did not win his appeal. I think he was a swimmer. And also, there are reports of certain athletes not being able to participate because of their marajuana use.
But here is my question:
If you are a world class athlete, and you KNOW that you need to pass certain drug checks before competitions, why are you using drugs?!
It’s not like these tests are a surprise to anyone. Everyone in the whole world knows that athletes are going to be tested. Wasn’t the last Olympics surrounded by the news that the entire Russian team was banned due to substance use.
I just don’t get it.
Another thing I don’t get, beach volleyball bikini bottoms for women. I was honestly SHOCKED to learn that only 10 cms of their butts can be covered. WHAT IS THAT!?!
I was watching some beach volleyball yesterday and the Canadian girls had so much junk in their trunk that their butts were legit eating their bottoms. WHY is this a rule?! How does the amount of flesh that a woman shows of her posterior affect her game? And if you’re just watching the game to pay attention to making sure that no more than 10cms of flesh is covered, are you really watching the game? No. If you’re going to be audibly upset that you can’t see almost all of woman’s butt, should you really be watching the game? No. You’re a perv. Can we just let these athletes play in clothes that don’t hinder the game but also allow them dignity and comfort? It’s a little bit ridiculous. Like sure if you wanted to make the sports naked like they were originally, then sure, make them naked for everyone. But society needs to stop sexualizing women.
So that was a rant HAHA and not exactly where I thought this post would go. But there ya have it. If you can find some sort of coherent point in all of that, please feel free to share your own in the comments below haha.
