While talking about female weightlifters, though, I wanna bring up Holley Mangold.
Holley Mangold, who was not being buzzed about as “the internet’s new crush” like the “adorable” Samantha Wright is. Nor did she get asked to do a sexy Olympic spread like other Olympians in 2012.
(edited to add: not that Samantha Wright deserves to be damned for this, nor any other female athlete- but I do think the media should be shamed for treating female athletes as worth the sum of their attractiveness rather than their skills, as I explain in a later post here).
No, she got made fun of for her size by Conan O’ Brian, and a lot of people laughed. Which sucked.
Holley Mangold, you’re one hell of a hard femme too. I salute you.
