P.S. The same seems to apply to google image searches for “sports men” and “sports women”… those people writing the magazines are not stupid. They are just exploiting what the public wants. It took SI editors a few minutes of diligent searching to come up with two images that would prove the opposite. Plus, the man’s image is actually more sarcastic than sexy; and the woman’s image is from a ‘female focussed sports magazine’.
