"The Olympics Has Destroyed Womanhood": ColumnistProvokes Storm Of Criticism After Attack On Chestless, Manlike Competitors    "A Turkish newspaper columnist has been heavily criticised after writing an article which said the Olympic Games is destroying the female figure.

The piece – called Womanhood is dying at the Olympics' – was written by Yuksel Aytug and was published in the daily newspaper Sabah and on the paper's website.

However, it soon spread around the world by saying the Games was distorting women's bodies and that extra points should be given to female athletes based on how feminine they looked."-Daily Mail Online

Well, here we go again.
Just when I thought I was out some Turkish News Columnist pulls me back in.  In the same vein as yesterday's post we have a member of the international media who believes there wasn't enough "T & A" at the 2012 Olympics.  It's hard to imagine that in this day and age a reporter would get his panties in a bunch over the belief that the female competitors weren't packing enough junk in their trunk and didn't have a nice enough rack.  By rack, of course, I mean the way the female weightlifters positioned the bar after the Clean, but before the Jerk.
Check out Zoe Smith on Google.  This young lady looks lovely and more importantly, she Clean and Jerked 121kgs.  That's 266 lbs!  She weighs 127 lbs.!  She apparently was on the receiving end of vicious verbal attack about the way she looks.  Some morons said she looks like a man.  Idiots!
Maybe Mr. Aytug missed the entire gold medal-winning USA Women's Water Polo team(Not work or family safe).  Surely he must have given his stamp of approval to these ladies!
Why can't we leave the Olympics for what they were meant for–to see the world's best competitors compete at the highest level.  To see a showcase of skill, not a beauty contest.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyway…what's more beautiful than a 266 lb. Clean and Jerk by a teenager who doesn't weigh half of that or a women's water polo team winning the gold medal?—George

The study shows that one can have Wheat Sensitivity without having Celiac Disease.  If you eat anything that is grain-based it is best to monitor how your body reacts afterward.  Or don't eat grain based food at all.–George
