    Default Wet t-shirt contests

    So, I have a problem with these. I haven't seen many and I certainly don't mind seeing girls' boobs. I don't have a problem because I think it is degrading to women. It's not degrading to women. These girls are choosing to do this. They don't represent women in general. They are using a desirable aspect of themselves for their benefit.

    "But it suggests that all women are good for are their physical bodies!"
    "Yeah, well boxing and wrestling suggest that all men are good for are their competitive drives and violent tendencies."

    Anyway, I just hear or read "wet t-shirt contest" and the word "contest" gets me. A contest is people competing for something and being judged based on their performance. How do you judge this? The first thing that I can think of is that the person who's t-shirt is the wettest wins. That in itself seems like a pretty dumb thing to win. Then I think it is probably the girl with the biggest or more desirable boobs, in which case it has nothing to do with talent or something the contestants could train for and improve. It is completely fate who wins.

    I think it should be called a wet t-shirt event instead. What's the point of it being a contest if there's no chance most of the girls would have of winning?

    If they call it "Wet T-Shirt Event", it means the people gathered there to watch will have to admit they are there to ogle boobs rather than being able to loosely pretend they are there for the sport of it all.

    It's a psychological sleight of hand trick, but really they could just call it "Tit Watching Tuesday" for all the word 'contest' actually means anything.

    I don't understand why these exist. Why not just show your boobs to everyone? Basically the same thing.

    I think I can clear this up for you...

    The audience always wins.

    I actually kind of feel the same way. I was just saying the other day. I don't mind women parading themselves around, but I don't like the competition. I think they should all be appreciated without one being a winner... I don't like pageants for this reason either.

    guys... it's AMERICAN
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    What Funkadelic is trying to say is he would like to be the first to sign up for my wet boxer shorts event. He's not afraid of a little ice cold water.

    That's like sitting at home and eating out of an ice cream carton instead of going out to an ice cream parlor and having a sundae!
