Sofia Goggia, an Italian silver medalist at the Beijing 2022 Olympics, has caused a sensation with the latest statements about homose*uals and transgenders in skiing. A wave of controversy arose after her statements, with social media harshly attacking the Italian ski star.
She said: "If there are homose*uals in skiing. Among women some yes. Among men I would say no. They must throw themselves off the Kitzbuhel Streif. I believe that women must fight for their rights, including equal pay. women are women; men, men.
I don't like it when they say: woman with balls. Why do you have to judge me by what I don't have, which I am not? Transgender people competing with women? In terms of sport, a man who turns into a woman has physical characteristics, even on a hormonal level, which allow him to push harder.
I don't think that's right then."
Meanwhile, there are those who talk about sexualization
Millie Bobby Brown was only 12 year-old when she landed the role of Eleven in Stranger Things. Over the course of The Guilty Feminist podcast, Brown explained that turning 18 allowed her to put several of her comments about her into perspective: "I'm dealing with the same things any 18-year-old has to do, trying to fit in, finding one's place in the world, having relationships.
It's all the same, the only difference is that I do it for everyone to see. Se*ual comments? I have received more in the last two weeks after I turned 18. I certainly see a difference between the way people behave and the way the press and media react at my coming of age.
That's disgusting. My experience in Hollywood is significant of what's going on in the world and how girls are se*ualized. " Brown also told an anecdote: "I was once criticized for wearing a low-cut dress. Did they have to talk about just that? Why didn't they talk about the incredible talents who were awarded that night or who were with me on the red carpet?"
