OFFSEASON - Karin Pasterer

Fall: Bikeseason is nearly over, the snow starts to fall and the bike is unfortunately forced to take a break. What else to do then? Well..waiting to see the snow melt is really not an option! So here it is: a short edit of YT Industries teamrider Karin Pasterers offseason and how she's enjoying to live in Saalbach Hinterglemm.

 I'm a little disturbed that you'd liken a PB video to pornhub videos :/. Disrespectful to the rider, I think.

 He wasn't. He was referring to a comment made by another hidden at the bottom that likened this to a PH video.

 That video sure involved alot of wood fearures..... If u no what i meanWink

And down here in so cal, we have some stereo types, climbing girls are generaly no not too cute, and snow barder girls are generaly pretty hot, and i think snow board cancels climbing, in this case and all, and dh chicks really seem to fluxuate, but what we have scientificly dound is that usualy dh girls fall towards the extremes of the spectrum, and dont have any medeocres to often. And with that science drop, im out!

 I find these edits about female riders funny sometimes. Why do they often have a photo shoot showing how hot or cute the girl is first? It seems like a online dating profile combined with biking video, while male bike videos have nothing sexual about them.

 Agreed. There seems to be a bit more 'introduction' to make sure the audience knows she's a girl (or attractive) before the video shows any actual riding. And quite often, it's a whole lot of meaningless build up. But I guess if every video were the same, we would get bored, eh? Smile

 I might get flamed for this, but....

The reason you often see this is an women's edit, is because we still live in a society where in general women live by this double standard, especially when it involves male dominated sports. Many men say they want to see more female participation, however, there is always the stereotype that if she does participate and especially if she is good at It, then for some reason her femininity is lost; being assumed as butch, tomboy, or gay.

I think it's because of this, that when women do a video edit, they feel the pressure to showcase that yes you can be beautiful, cute, feminine and still charge in these male dominated sports.

I'm sure many of you will argue my point, but it's proven time and time again every time there is a video edit featuring a female. Comments about how hot she is, not hot she is, "wow, she can actually rip". I've even seen comments such as "why do most chicks that ride bikes, not hot?"

 I think your right.

I also think that because from childhood girls are kind of forced into the stereotype.
here's a toy baby to look after, here's a plastic cooking set and toy vacuum cleaner.
its no wander that when boys get taken upto the woods to make dens and play army that the stereotypical male and female roles end up as they do.

its great to see women in adventure/adrenaline sports and i guess as they are already breaking the stereotypes and essentially living a double life the build up section of the video represents both halves of their life.

i also like her tattoo about smiling Smile

 I think there are a few different sides to it, also; some women are trying to showcase that it's possible to be feminine, etc and still rip, while others are simply exploiting the fact that they're female... Case in point, the boobie GoPro video that popped up on Vimeo a few weeks ago. I think women as a whole need to stop blaming men for the 'objectifying' that happens because they're presenting themselves as sexual objects and instead, focus on their chosen profession/sport/activity as a HUMAN, not as a certain gender stereotype. Only when women stop identifying themselves as women first, and instead, as riders that happen to be female, the sexualized comments of 'she's hot', etc. will stop.

Someimes when I'm out riding, I get crap from random dudes who love to snake me on the drop in, make comments about how I'm female and generally act the fool. However, more often than not, I'm greeted by true gentlemen who refrain from making asinine comments and treat me just like they should: as a fellow rider. I've only rarely been told that I'm 'fast, for a girl' because I don't allow being female to be an excuse or a reason for special treatment: I don't sleep around, I load my own bike, change my own tires and I keep up on the trails. I also don't bitch, whine or comment about 'how dirty I am'. This may sound harsh, but I'm calling it like I see it: in order to stop being objectified and treated as equals, women must first stop objectifying ourselves and acting inferior. We must BE equals to get equal treatment, and that includes expecting special treatment because we have boobs.

 I'm not saying that lots of female riders do this. In fact, very few do. However, there are the occasional chicks that exploit their feminity and sexuality to get what they want within the industry... There are those females in EVERY industry, however, and most of them last just about as long as their looks last them. We're all riders. We're all human. In my personal opinion, gender should come very last as an identifying quality.

 ha. Can you imagine a photo shoot with CG or Tippie? That would be funny stuff.

 I dare someone to try to dispute lalena and not sound stupid. Haha, i think u especialy hit the nail on the head with the butch comment bud, and as much of a stereotype as it is, half the time it proves to be true however, its mainly due to the fact that they dont necesarily lack femininity, and still are quite atractive, however the quality to dominate an extreme sport or activity as such is not one that is viewed as particularly feminine, and such doesnt create views of lady- like conduction of a woman. Thus making a true lady seem unatractive simply due to one little subliminal thing that most dont even realize.

 Exactly ambatt, saw that too and thought " if you want to fit in, then fot in. Don bi*tch abt being treated differently if youre going to continue to act dofferently. Its wanting changed viewing without changing what is viewed, litteraly and figuratively.

 This video shouldnt has been VOD. There are plenty of other videos focused in bike riding itself. This one maybe is quite good for a trade spot.
