ESPN mostly features men on the covers of their magazines, but when females are chosen for the cover of the magazine they are usually feminized and/or very sexualized. When men are on the covers of the magazine they are usually shown with very stoic and strong expressions, whereas the women are either somewhat exposed or in a very sexualized and inviting pose; Also the men are usually shown dressed in the attire of the sport in which they participate while the women are put into dresses or other more feminine clothing. I wonder why that is?
