“Can you give us a twirl?”

In this video, news interviewers ask questions to male athletes that are questions commonly presented to female athletes. Evident by their facial expressions and reactions, they’re offended and in shock by these ignorant and irrelevant questions. But when the video shows one clip of a female athlete being asked to “give us a twirl,” she barley reacts as though she is use to a request like this. This video draws attention to the sexism in athletics and how nonsensical commentary is excused for women but not men.
