Julia Mancuso: Sad Skier

NEW YORK – Julia Mancuso wants the other Olympic skiers to eat her Alpine snow dust at the Vancouver Games. After that, they can “kiss my tiara,” she says.

Kiss My Tiara is the name of her new underwear line, which she hopes to expand to other lingerie.

Racy! Olympic skier launches lingerie line

Olympic Skier Julia Mancuso posing in lingerie…..What in God’s name for?

She has posed in racy underwear to sell ski boots in the past “to add an air of respectability” to the misogynistic ads.
It’s actually difficult to find a picture of her in clothing.

This adds Respectability?


Women thinking nothing of sexualizing themselves in front ot the entire world, no matter how competent or successful they have become.

Gee. I wonder why the words self-deprecating and unbecoming leap to mind.

No matter how successful women are: THEY WILL ULTIMATELY BE MEASURED BY THEIR APPEARANCE..and sexual appeal..

That is not flattering or “celebrating” beauty.
It is objectifying and debasing.

A successful athlete who needs to pose in underwear?

Where are womens’ “healthy shame” and self of privacy?

These are our Female role models?

Media showcasing successful women almost always scantily clad on television and in movies.
Lawyers with cle-avage.
Police officers donning skin tight, revealing halter tops to work with hardened criminals. Uh huh.
“Fashion shows” that are in essence: Por-nography.
Tennis players wearing, well……….next to nothing actually.

It is always a no win for women.
If you’re deemed ugly- you lose.
If you’re deemed beautiful- you are weighed and measured (especially by bald middle aged men) and trivialized.

And foolishly, women collude with this demoralization, criticizing and judging their fellow women based on looks too.

The sex culture is destroying women and thier essence.

When Sarah Palin accepted the Republican nomination for vice-president, people unendingly pointed out her beauty and “sexual power.”

More people googled “Sarah Palin in bikini” on this site than any other search.
And the very name of this site is “WOMAN HONOR THYSELF.”

Discussions and debates raged endlessly about the Alaska governor’s attractiveness and how it will affect the race.
Men salivating and falling all over themselves because she’s so “pretty”.

Pictures of her red high-heels were highlighted on Yahoo news.
Ah yes..the “sexy librarian” looks.

Newscasters, bloggers: men and women, and even Conservative radio talk show hosts think nothing of insulting older women by calling them shrunken and wrinkled. If the woman has cosmetic surgery to avoid the humiliation, they taunt her about that as well.

Now, the media comments on Hussein O’s wife’s toned “arms.” and no one thinks twice about how audacious and inapproriate this is.

We accept bigoted misogynists.
We join with them.

Don’t bother trying to equate mens’ plight with womens by pointing out some man who was deemed “attractive” by the media.
Men, do not need looks to get by..and we all know it.

Look at some the male candidates who have run for office.
No one mentioned their bald heads, acne, fat stomachs or what color shoes they wore.

Their wives, on the other hand, were fodder and analyzed and shredded endlessly.
What did she wear?
What kind of jewerlry?
Was it designer?
Was it flattering?
Did she look FAT?!

Female candidates receive savage treatment by the media.
Simply because they are women.

High time for women to STOP allowing themselves to be “measured” for the impact their looks and sexuality have ………in Sports, Art, Music, Politics..and everything else.

Polls that judge female beauty just remind us how vapid, shallow and empty we have truly become as a society.

How about a competency test?
In order to get a job.. You have to demonstrate that you have at least 2 lil brain cells in your head that can occasionally collide and produce a thought.

How about that?

Romance and chivalry are not diminishing.

They are dead, as in dead. Please spare me the ‘exception to the rule’ phenomeon by pointing out the one in a million man who is either old enough to remember how to respect women..or is the diamond amongst the wolves.

The media is inundated with por-nography and demoralizing, commercialized sex.

Young girls are mocked if they are chaste and labeled “prudes” if they are modest or object to the objectification of women. Other women tell them “they’re just jealous”. Men tell them theyr’e too “insecure” to let their boyfriends or husbands gape at other scantily clad women.

Girls are made to believe that being “cheap” is cool. Take a long look at the supermodels, or the latest anorexic starlet.

Not just rap videos. Not just every girls or womens magazine on the shelves.

Look at the ever so popular show, Dancing with the Stars, where the so called dancers slutify themselves week after week seeing who can wear less. Yet this is normalized and internalized by girls and women everywhere.

Then there are the men who play the “as long as it’s not my daughter” game.
It’s always someone’s daughter.

There’s no shame in pre-marital s-ex or s-ex without feelings or commitment right?
If the boys can do it, so can we huh?

Yes. They sure can and they do.

The “hook-up culture” is unpaid prostitution of girls and women: plain and simple.

The s-exual revolution, (what exactly were they revolting against?) has does nothing but dishonor women.

The effect of ‘free love’, which is anything but love, and promiscuous s-ex on the female psyche is totally different and infinitely more damaging for women than for men.

But of course, since Libs and Radical feminists deny the inherent differences between men and women, this horror will go untreated and certainly unremedied.

And why do ya suppose so many men have bought into this feminist myth?
Because they respect women so much?

It’s quite simple. Many men no longer have to be manly and no longer feel any responsibility to “take care” of their girlfriends, wives or even families.
“I can open the dang door myself”, she shrieks at him, in her plunging neckline, and 7 inch stilletoes.

This new found se-xual freedom benefits men much more than it could ever benefit women.


Women, who aren’t too indocrinated to believe they are the same as men, want their men to be their protectors, and when another man threatens their well being, they feel that way immediately- propaganda or not.

As far as mixed messages go….Feminists early on told women that “all men are pigs”. pig.gif Next thing ya know they tell women to act the same way.

When did “liberation” ever become about women wh-oring themselves, Olympic skiers posing in underwear just to make a buck…. rather than, what women truly want deep down – to be respected as accomplished human beings while exploring the wonders of intimacy with one loving partner?

    I met my wife on the internet at the Christian Cafe. We discovered each other by emails and phone calls before we ever met and laid eyes on each other. It really is a shame that so many women decide to take their clothes off for fame and money but guys do put more emphasis on looks, it is just the way we are.

    Some feminists would say that having the freedom to cash in on good looks is part of their right as a woman. But I really like women who decide that they can succeed without ever displaying their bodies in exchange for cash or fame. It is hard to argue against a woman posing in a regular swim suit or bikini since that is normal beach attire. But underwear or naked? Not!
    I am sick to death of Danica Patrick making suggestive commercials…why not just be a race driver and win races?

    Guys are weak in this area. We do not need any help objectifying women because we have an innate pull to do it anyway unless we discipline our minds otherwise.

    Anyway, hope you are enjoying your snowfall!

    I was in Wal Mart management for a number of years and I noticed during those years that it was the attractive female that got the promotions as opposed to the plain Jane who in many cases was more deserving. It was a very common practice. Many women do use their sexual appeal to advance themselves with the help of eagar males.

    I’m too excited at the moment to read the post clearly, but I PROMISE I will tomorrow. Right now I’m shamelessly spamming the sonogram picture I posted on my blog a few minutes ago.

    Please forgive me.


    And I’ll be spamming again after the baby is born. LOL!

    How right you are, Angel. Women these days are so objectified.

    How’s that women’s lib-by stuff workin’ for us?

  5. z says:

    Where are the libbers? When it’s profane and debauched and against women, they’re all for it…when it’s Christian or Jewish modesty and abstinance, they’re whining about WOMEN”S FREEDOM.
    God help us all. Excellent post, Angel. xxx This SO ticks me off.
    And women wonder why men don’t respect them anymore? What a LAUGH.

    Jeez, Ang…

    i think the whole “sex sells” thing is on its way out, i hope. my daughter was talking about some show on TV when she said …”it’s boring. all they talk about is sex.” pretty sad when an 11 yr. old has already had enough of it. she does watch some stuff i probably shouldn’t allow but she was talking about a show on “abc family”. family as in …it should be Grated type stuff. i guess the definition has changed and i was under a rock.

  8. silverfiddle says:

    Every evil under the sun has gone on forever. The difference is that now we’re mainstreaming perversions that used to be practiced only in private dens of iniquity away from decent society.

    I think it is part of the plan to take away the mystery and dehumanize us to better make us part of the machine.

  9. jadedfellow says:

    In the beginning it was one man and one woman.

    We have been going downhill ever sincem so what will the finish line look like?

    Hint, hint,, There won’t be any snowballs there!

    Angel, you knocked this out of the ballpark. You make so many excellent points. You were truly inspired when you wrote this (as you so often are).

    Thanks for stopping by my site to say howdy!

    I agree with your comments & was not happy to hear that 4 female Olympic athletes, including Lindsey Vonn, posed in bikinis in SI. I would have thought they would want to be respected for their hard work & athletic achievement, rather than turned into sex objects.

    You’re always right on target!

  12. Brooke says:

    I think a good deal of the female Olympiads are posing for the so-called “Sports Illustrated” magazine.

    Misogyny runs rampant because men lack good fathers to teach them respect. You should hear some of the stuff my husband tells me “the guys” at work said. He frequently tells them to shut up, or get back to work, ect. He’ll then be mocked with stuff like, “What are you, gay?” or “Yeah right, like you wouldn’t want to hit that.”

    It’s deplorable.

    I hate to be the mundane type…..but…it did not start out this way Angel…i have an idea what may have happened, but that story will take centuries to tell..Hopefully, parents will step away from the mass media and up to the plate and do something about it…if not…THE SNAKE WINS!!!!!!!
    And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him
    And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
    And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
    And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she
    shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
    Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
    And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed…
    (nor were they pictured on any magazine covers or featured in any movies!!!)

    “Female candidates receive savage treatment by the media.
    Simply because they are women.”

    And guess who controls much of the media, liberals, the very one who claim to be on the side of women.

    Apparently women used to be slaves of men back in the day, now they’re slaves to the mean, nasty liberal establishment.

  15. Dapoppins says:

    In so many ways, I couldn’t agree more. Women have given up their dignity so that they can take their shirts off in public like men do, and equal them selves in male depravity. How did getting the vote, devolve to being able to wear your bra in public and have a one night stand without condemnation. We gave up being respected, and mysterious creatures in exchange for belly baring shirts…Really? Was it worth it? And women have no one to blame but themselves.

  16. C-Christian Soldier says:

    Right on–
    I see it – even at FOX- Insipid females —
    Thankfully – there are a few who have a brain and they do make me smile —
    When I state facts that you have posted – I get ‘eye rolls’-there she goes again!!! or words to that affect.

  17. Stanford Matthews says:

    Sex sells. It’s that simple. It always has. It always will. There was a time when the topic of sex was taboo. Over time our society as well as others have allowed certain norms and rules of behavior to be relaxed. Slowly over time much has been surrendered.

    For example, in WWII the ‘pin-up girl’ phenomenon was excused as a morale booster for the troops (what they’re fighting for) and allowed to continue. The scary nature of the times caused many to acquiesce and created an exception to the ‘norms’ of the times.

    We may not even realize how are own purchasing decisions these days promote the very notions to which we otherwise object.
