Scantily clad female athletes upset feminist

Women's Electoral Lobby chair Eva Cox is outraged at the prospect of the Delhi Commonwealth Games, like the 2006 Melbourne games, prominently featuring scantily clad women competing against one another. Ms Cox going so far as to suggest that organisers "ought to get their heads read and their penises measured."

Ms Cox adding:

They're trying to play up on the sexuality of women and that's just really tacky. It's stupid. It's infantile.

Oops, my mistake, Ms Cox is actually complaining about the Gold Coast Surf Club's upcoming Bikini Track Sprint, which, unlike the Commonwealth Games offers a $5,000 cash prize rather than a fake gold medal. The other likely significant difference: it's safe to assume breasts at the Bikini Sprint will be larger, or as I prefer to think of them, more aerodynamic.

Why would you measure penises? They should be measuring breast-size of the runners so the event can be properly handicapped.
