Is Sports Sexist?

Kia Ora Guys, So today I have created this drawing explaining 'Is Sports Sexist?' So I got a lot of my information from the article given, but there are still more questions that I need to know more about.

WALT: write a reflection on what we have read about Sexism.

Is Sports Sexist

Today I have been reading about an article about Is Sports Sexist?
I do find that sports is sexist not only in women's sports but in all sports.

The captain of the All Blacks is Kieran Read who had currently been captain of the All Blacks nine times in his 84 tests.

Also the captain of the Black Ferns is Fiao’o Fa’amausili. And has been captain of the Black Ferns since 2015

In my family, we play and watch lots of sports. We play with a lot of our family and sports mean a lot to all of us. THe most popular sports we play is Rugby, Netball and Touch.

We love to watch Rugby online and on our TV and our favourite team is the NZRL aka the All Blacks . And we also like to watch Touch online and on our T.V but we don’t have a favourite team. And for Netball we don’t really like watching the sport, we only like to play it.

Sexism is something a lot of people do towards sports men and women play. But do you know what it means and what it is. Sexism means stereotyping and discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sexual behaviour. Sexism in language is an offensive reminder of the way the culture sees woman.

Are you aware of sexism in sports? If so describe an example.

Yes I am aware of sexism in sport because there are women who have claimed that they have been getting offended by en that are watching them play the sport.
For an example: Two men, were whistling at women that were playing netball, Theses men weren’t watching the women use their skills as they played, they watched the women jump and run about, in a sexual point of view. But I don’t only feel like sexism happens to women, Sometimes it could happen to men.

People say that you should always support your country yet there’s barely any support for New Zealand females teams over the social media and the TV. Why do you think that is?

Are there sports that are sexist towards males?
I don’t think there are sports sexist towards males because most of the sexist behaviour has been caused by males. And also men don’t find that the sports they are playing are sexist in anyway possible.
