Why I Still Respect Christmas Abbott

The recent attention to the sexualization of women in CrossFit (and sport in general) is important, but I think it is missing the point. Current articles attribute the success of people like Christmas Abbott to their good looks, and blame women who promote their bodies for perpetuating inequality, stating that they are harming themselves and society. Writing suggests men also play a role in the process, stating we all have a responsibility in breaking the cycle.

True: inequality affects and is preserved by humankind, however, people don’t wait in line for hours to meet the gorgeous Christmas Abbott just because she is hot as hell (OK – not everyone in that line is standing there for that reason) – there is more to it than that, and I admonish you to dig deeper. Although Christmas’ beauty and bodacious booty are definitely assets (and she exploits them fully), this is only one aspect of the three-dimensional being she showcases to the world.
