17. And the survey says . . . [X]
Count me out. I have no desire to watch men in bouncing around sports without sufficient support and covering. And the male track contestants might have something to say about any required lack of support as they go about the 100-meter hurdles.

Or the female athlete who just happens to be on her period (to the extent the athletes at this level still have them) so everyone gets to see her string.

Thank you, no.
