I demand equal opportunity ogling!!

I'm having a ball watching the Olympics coverage. (Though my sleep cycle will thank me when it's over!) I'm especially enjoying rooting for the beach volleyball due Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh. These are amazing athletes and I believe this is a legitimate "sport" that belongs in the Olympics. (Don't get me started about those that I don't think have any business being there...!)

But I have a question.

Why do the male competitors wear this:

And the female competitors wear this?

I DEMAND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY OGLING, DAMMIT! Gimme bare chests and rippling abs, tight butts in tiny little "uniforms"!

I'm storming the IOC office. Who's with me??

How sad is it that some of my favorite Olympic eye candy is in the equestrian events? LOL

[[swimmers]] Heck yeah! You have to wonder how those things stay on! I keep waiting (hoping?) to get flashed. ;)

Some of the runners wear next to nothing as well, have you noticed? But since the original Olympians competed naked, I guess we should be grateful for those little scraps of clothing!
