Gold Winning Gymnast Nastia Liukin Not Dressing Properly, Apparently

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

And so must be taken down a few pegs by websites like this. What about Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Michael Phelps, are his clothes okay?   Who knows. Because he is male, the sleazebag celebrity following blogs are far more focused on what his girlfriend looks like. [NB: the link in the prior sentence is to the Huffington Post. That post and the appended comments are disgusting enough, but every other blog post about her I found is far worse, so I’m not linking. Here’s just a small sample of the commentary: “Michael Phelps’ girlfriend Caroline “Caz” Pal would be nothing without her implants. She really isn’t that pretty. Michael needs an upgrade, stat!”]
