This woman is watching a sporting event of some kind. IS THIS FEMINIST?
No. The culture of sports is a sort of miniaturized warfare, which incites the individual to lose him- or herself in identification with his or her “team,” in a proto-nationalist fashion, making him or her complicit in an exercise of brutal, organized physical domination of the enemy “team.” Thus, sporting events create and support a patriarchal conception of “power-over” in which victory — and thus worth — is defined by physical domination and conquest of the Other. It’s still feminist to watch “Friday Night Lights,” though. PROBLEMATIC.
SOMEONE HAD TO DO IT.
“this woman” is Hazel Mae, a SportsNet Anchor here in Boston. She’s paid to report and follow the local sports in the area(and I hear she’s an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox, hence the photo).
