LPGA accused of ´slut-shaming´ after
introducing controversial new dress
code for female golfers

Independent [UK], by Jack Austin

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2017 1:22:34 PM

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) has been accused of “slut-shaming” female players after introducing a new dress code that forbids plunging necklines, leggings or revealing skirts on the course. Reactions to the move by golf’s governing body have been overwhelmingly against it, with Teen Vogue, the influential youth magazine, saying the dress code had set women “way back”. In an email sent around by LPGA player president Vicki Goetze-Ackerman on July 2, players were warned that they would face a fine of $1000 if they breached the new dress code which comes into action on July 17.

Comments:
Once again, the female professional sports takes it in the shorts when issuing dress code rules. What exactly do they see that can´t be observed on any busy street or shopping mall? Which politically correct entity has this power to dictate to those striving to earn a living before a receptive crowd or audience on TV? It doesn´t seem to apply to other venues that create large revenues for their sponsors.

Call it whatever pejorative term you like, but seeking to have representatives of any sport, activity, or business, etc. to dress modestly does not seem like an invasion of privacy, or an unreasonable demand. Given the highly sexualized atmosphere of the culture, it would seem to set the LPGA members apart if they dress modestly. Is that a bad thing?

In its business model, is the LPGA putting on a lewd, girly peep show, or seeking to showcase the golfing prowess of its members? Golf is not, after all, beach volley ball.

I happen to be a man, and in my particular profession, modest, professional dress is an absolute requirement. I am inclined to dress like that on anyway, but I also knew going in that was a requirement.

Earlier today, in another article, they were complaining that their winnings are not as much as men´s. I was thinking they would get a LOT more people(men) watching if only they dressed the same as the women who play beach volleyball. But, guess they wouldn´t like my suggestion.

As God is my witness poster #1, your post wasn´t up when I was composing my post. And I wasn´t serious about them dressing as the beach volleyball players, but if they did, they´d get more viewers.

They have bigger issues than a dress code. Its not like golf is the most fast paced exciting sport televised. So watch women play golf at the level of a good middle aged male amateur is gong to be a though sell. The professional men hit the ball further, they put far more spin on the ball giving much more action on the green (about as exciting as it gets), and They have a more established reputation and history. Not taking anything against women, but the market place can´t be forced into watching something they don´t want to watch. Just ask the Kneepads how the marketplace has affected them.

If a positive change is needed on the LPGA tour perhaps it would be to convince American players as a whole to practice about twice as hard and twice as long as they currently do. What they wear is far less important than how they play the game. Currently American players do not hold up to the international group of women golfers; just look at the final leaderboard at any given LPGA event to see what I mean. It´s embarrassing. Currently, the fashions that the American girls wear are the most striking thing about them; it certainly isn´t their ability to get the golf ball into the hole. When they, as a group, become more competitive, I´ll begin watching the tournaments on television again.

If the men in the PGA have to wear pants, why not the women? I have never understood that. If the game is so sacred that men´s kneecaps aren´t allowed to see the light of day, why is it okay to let women wear shorts and skorts?

Personally, I like a dress code. It sets this sport apart.

Think how their ratings would soar if their dress code demanded string bikinis and allowed topless golfing. Camera guys would have their hands full (so to speak) guarding against the wrong angle for the "putt squat" line of sight pose. But, the LPGA would probably break the viewership numbers of the Super Bowl.

Yes, that is what real "Slut Shaming" looks like!

So does Teen Vogue have a position on our President´s comments regarding the French president´s wife?

Does the President´s comments set French women back, or advance them?

Ladies of the LPGA, you do understand that if you want equality, real equality, you will start dressing according to a dress code. The men have been living with a dress code for how many decades now? They have survived just fine.

Seems to me that as long as they promote the trashy looking attire that would not pass muster at most of the nation´s golf courses, they are the ones who are encourage the inner slut in these women. They might get more audience viewers at home too.

Most of us have no problem with people who represent a sport dressing decently in public. I saw a couple of the outfits over the weekend and those were just not appropriate on what should be a professional level.

This golfer has been a fan of Michelle Wie since, at age 14, she shot 72-68 in the PGA (men´s) Tour Hawaiian Open, and missed the cut by one stroke, beating nearly half of the adult guys in the field. Amazing. That performance absolutely bowled me over.

I thought she´d be headed straight to the top of the women´s golf world, hitting it, as she does (or did) more like a man than like a women. (Her shot trajectories were high and soft, sort of like that Nicklaus fellow used to do.) Although she won a Women´s U.S. Open championship at Pinehurst #2 a few years ago, she hasn´t dominated the LPGA Tour as I thought she would. These days the top players on that tour seem to be Korean.

The physical attractiveness of some women in professional golf ought not to be covered up by too much sackcloth. That´s one advantage women have over men--they´re more attractive than we are, by design, I think. But what do I know? I´m just a straight guy.

Yes, men on Tour must wear long pants. That´s a rule, and I didn´t violate it, although I do like to practice in shorts. When I play now for fun at a local club, I usually wear shorts. They´re cooler, and I have good legs to show off.

Most really tony private clubs will allow men to wear (Bermuda) shorts, but not above the knee, and no cargo shorts (Obama´s favorite attire). And golf shirts must have a collar (no tee shirts).

I remember a few decades ago when Jim McMahon, the QB, played in a televised pro-am in bare feet. One of the contributors to Golf Digest or Golf World, can´t remember which, commented that: "Jim McMahon may play golf, but he is not a golfer."

You either get it or you don´t. For me, the biggest advantage to shorts is that I can wade further into the water hazards I invariably find myself in. Pro V1´s aren´t cheap.

On the one hand, some female golf players want to dress to a different standard compared to male players but on the other they demand equal pay with male players. They lack consistency and don´t really understand what they stand for.

Look at how nicely and fully the male players are dressed on the course. I don´t see muscle shirts, I don´t see short shorts. The same standard of modesty should apply to female players.

There’s “no way to stop” Kim Jong Un’s regime and its missile and nuclear program, a North Korea expert told Fox News on Thursday, the warning coming amid Pyongyang´s continued threats to sink Japan and blast the U.S. “into ashes and darkness.” Leading Seoul-based North Korea expert Andrei Lankov told Fox News that Kim Jong Un is accelerating his missile and nuclear program “much faster than anybody expected.” “They want to get the point of having a sufficient number of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of destroying a sufficient number of American cities,” Lankov said.

Undeterred by international condemnation of its latest nuclear test and a new round of sanctions, North Korea is reportedly preparing to carry out another underground atomic test. Satellite images taken since the regime conducted what it claims was a test of a thermonuclear device at its Punggye-ri proving grounds on September 3 have revealed mining equipment and heavy cargo trucks close to a shaft excavated to the south of the test site. Additional activity has also been confirmed at another underground access point, known as the West Portal. Analysts believe the damage caused by the recent test to subterranean

Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it.  Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.

Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” reads like a therapy session in which the losing presidential candidate works through the five stages of grief in real time. There’s plenty of anger, oodles of denial, bouts of depression, some desperate bargaining and finally a modicum of acceptance. But not before she’s thrown everyone from President Obama to Bernie Sanders under the bus for her loss to Donald Trump. Among her many laments? “I don’t think the press did their job,” as she tells Vox’s Ezra Klein. Expanding on that, she told him the press obsessed over Trump because she was talking policy while he was “good

During an interview with Vox on Tuesday, former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton argued that without FBI Director James Comey, she could have picked up a point or two more among white women and that Comey allowed husbands and boyfriends to tell their wives and girlfriends that Clinton would end up in jail.

She added that gender isn’t “the motivating factor that race was for President Obama.” Clinton then cited research that Sheryl Sandberg discussed with her about women become less likeable the

The country’s voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trump’s voter integrity commission Tuesday.

In the book, Clinton complained that the “attacks” against her use of the private email server “were untrue or wildly overstated, and motivated by partisan politics.” She revealed her voodoo doll temptation: It was a dumb mistake.

Clinton said she was unfairly criticized, even suggesting the incident was no different than past tragedies dating back to the Reagan administration. “Take the Benghazi tragedy—you know, I have one of
