Gasp! Can it really be true that women's beach volleyball is sexually exploitative, as claimed by a "former Swedish equality minister"? "Men are allowed to play sand volleyball in shorts and singlets, while women are not allowed to wear bikini bottoms that have side seams that are broader than seven centimetres." We never would've thought there was anything wrong with that, but we'll be keeping our eyes on the situation a little more closely from now on.
