I’m the world’s expert on sterotypes held by academics about athletes and held by athletes about academics. To me, both of them are caricatures.
Elite athletes learn entitlement. They believe they are entitled to have women serve their needs. It’s part of being a man. It’s the cultural construction of masculinity.
I think we have tremendous media covering the sport of boxing, even if boxing is a little bit lost in popularity with MMA sports. And I think that with the show ‘Lights Out’ it’s going to get more attention to the sport, and it’s going to put more attention to the problems that athletes in general have.
