Not this crap again: Former Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year runner has name removed from award due to pornography, sex work past

MADISON, WI — A three-time Big Ten Female Athlete of the Year has been stripped of her name on a prestigious reward because the immature babies at the Big Ten and the University of Wisconsin can’t stand the fact that she did sex work in the past.

On Tuesday, it was announced that the conference and her alma mater stripped Suzy Favor Hamilton of her name on the award after she opened up about her call girl past. Mrs. Hamilton went under the name Kelly Lindy in her sex work days, making $600.00/hour.

Favor Hamilton, who won several national titles but never an Olympic medal, was named Female Athlete of the Year three years in a row, from 1988 to 1990. The award was named for her — the Suzy Favor Female Athlete of the Year Award — but the Big Ten and University of Wisconsin officials have decided to remove her name.

So, it is real simple in the US and Canada: it is ok for a bunch of conservative men (and women) lie to women about taking away their right to abortion; it is ok for a bunch of has-been comedians to make rape and domestic violence jokes (regardless of whether the butt of such jokes are the victims or rapists/abusers); it’s ok for a head coach of a well-known high school to cover up sexual assault (yes, looking at you, Steubenville, Ohio); but it is not ok for a free woman to go into an occupation of her choice.

Fucked up priorities that the US and Canada have.
