Packer Bikini Girls and Sissy's
This past Sunday January 20th, while watching the NFC Championship game between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers, I was reminded of the many ways that homophobia thrives within American society.
In an attempt to show their proud for the Green Bay Packers, a group of young women (Packer Bikini Girls) wore yellow bikini tops during temps of -4° and a windchill of -24° at the historically sold out Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. In response to this, an anchorman said "Now doesn't that make me feel like a sissy." I couldn't believe it.
