Sexism in running … something finally to be bitter about

OK – gotta get this crap off my chest. I know most French girls are fucking girly. They always disappoint me, cute as their skinny bitch asses almost always are. Many of them won’t run or exercise in general because it makes them sweat, they don’t do sports because guys might not like them, don’t want muscle etc.. They prefer to smoke and puke up after eating to stay slim instead of climbing, hiking etc. to do it. Not all of course … there are a couple French girl mountain guides, good climbers, top ultra runners. But they do not represent the majority or even popular sentiment. The ones who do it ‘regularly’ seem to have to be at a super high level, then they are respected and revered even, but they are seen as a class apart from ‘most french women’. I know that is a given. For a country that invented feminism supposedly, the girls here prefer to stay pretty far back in general with regards to sports and are happy to go hiking letting their boyfriends carry their backpacks most of the time. The Ultra trail race I did has always under 300 women out of 2000 participating and the big race has about the same number of women out of 2500 runners.

BUT still – WTF is it with France and Switzerland still being so god damned sexist about incredibly short races like the distance of 10km where it is an olympic event for women ?! Or why do you never see ANY women bike clubs rolling down the street (tons of men’s clubs with them all dressed up in spandex, dicks plainly visible … wouldn’t chicks want to show off their tits and muscles in the same way ?) What’s up with this ?

The NUMBER of times I have come across foot races where ONLY MEN can sign up for the 10km distance, and women must sign up for  a shorter 7.5 or 5km races on the same day is DISGUSTING. I find this constantly – I find a 10km race in a nearby town, go to the site to sign up and find out I CANNOT. I must sign up for the pink girly race instead if I want to race that day (I don’t – I simply will not support these types of races!).

Even in the local Le Dauphiné Libéré newspaper a few days ago in the run-up to the Annecy 10km (which does have women and men in the same distance) had an article that was chock-o-block full of sexist commentary such as saying how a 10km race is so very difficult and that it calls for a ‘strong male’ with a big heart and muscular legs (do these guys even watch these races, or are they just gay men drooling over imaginary male runners who write these articles??? – most of the guys in these races looked like scrawny whippets to me compared to muscular ultra trailers I ran with last week) and it went on to speak about how the ‘weaker female sex’ made such a GOOD showing this year by enrolling close to 200 chicks in a race of 800 people. WTF ???

The girl who won the women’s catagory in this race beat most of those ‘strong men’ coming in 52nd place scratch in 36 minutes. The first year of the CCC (then 86km) a woman won the ENTIRE race scratch beating every man in the race by a large gap. What makes them think this is so ‘weak’ when MOST of the men who enter any given foot race end up getting BEATEN by a WOMAN (even though by percentage we are a FRACTION of the total racers) and that the extra 2.5km is so ‘difficult’ for women to run that they have to hold a special 7.5km race ‘just for us’  ?

Just shut up and get to work worshipping my pussy, French boy is all I want to say … get on down there and stay there!
