Man, I love this picture, but the Sports Illustrated photo-gallery it’s been posted in made me want to punch a kitten. Hey, SI, thanks for labelling all female hockey fans ‘Puck Bunnies’ 

Hockey fans come in all shapes and sizes, buy few are as passionate as the league’s female fans (aka - Puck Bunnies). Whether it’s proposing to a player through the boards or painting their stomachs with the name of their favorite team, these ladies are not shy about expressing their devotion. In this gallery, SI pays tribute to the NHL’s Puck Bunnies.Read more: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/1203/nhl.female.fans/content.1.html#ixzz1ocvAMtCQ

Really bros? Firstly, fuck you. Secondly, so what if I am attracted to a hockey player, does that make my interest in hockey any less sincere? Does it make my knowledge or opinions any less valuable? Whatever you like about hockey, whether it’s the skill, the violence, or the players’ amazing hockey asses, that’s fine. As long as every person there is enjoying themselves, who cares? This photo-gallery demeans female hockey fans, not by showing them having a good time, and expressing their attraction to hockey players (and seriously, look at that picture, those girls are having the time of their lives at a hockey game which is awesome) but by suggesting that this is the only role that women can play in hockey.
By labelling female fans ‘Puck Bunnies’, they’re separating female fans from male fans and making judgements about the way they can interact with the sport. Furthermore they’re insinuating that female hockey fans only appreciate the players, not the sport itself, and therefore are inferior to the ‘real fans’, who can either be men, or women who go out of their way to protest that they’re not ‘puck bunnies’. 
So SI, this is bullshit. Not because there is anything wrong with any of these photos, but because you’re using them to perpetuate a damaging stereotype which prevents female sports fans, and female athletes from being taken seriously. And that’s not cool. 
If you want to make a complaint to Sports Illustrated, they have a Contact Us form here. I would encourage people to contact them, because this misogynistic crap is not ok. 

Wow, way to turn off a burgeoning hockey fan, Boy’s Club Illustrated.
