Good News as Lingerie Football is dropped from Channel 7

Collective Shout was one of many voices calling for Channel 7 to end their sponsorship of  Lingerie Football (recently cynically rebranded as ‘Legends Football League’).

The so-called sport sees women playing American football in skimpy underwear, and is not recognised or supported by the Australian Sports Commission.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “a Channel Seven spokesman said the emerging sport would no longer be televised. This is despite the LFL claiming the league attracted “record” television ratings and even beating A-League broadcasts with audiences of more than 300,000”.

Collective Shout is grateful for your partnership to help stop the promotion of this sexist and degrading sport.

    LFL is a ‘sport’ where female athletes are required to play in lingerie for the enjoyment of men, for no pay. It is those who promote and profit from exploiting these women that should be ashamed.

    It’s not okay to call women tramps. I have a real problem with the term ‘slut shaming’ though, it suggests that the women in question are sluts (a term invented by men to police women’s sexuality) and reinforces this distinction between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ women. I won’t use that word.

    Great news – what an awful “spectacle”. Shame on the tramps who participated.
