Danica Patrick Sick of Being ‘Sexy,’ Prefers Being Called ‘Pretty’

Is Danica Patrick slowly becoming the most irritating professional female athlete?

The pit road princess recently told reporters that she’d rather be called “pretty” instead of “sexy.”

I guess “NASCAR driver” wasn’t an option?

“Maybe you guys can answer this question in some way,” she told USA Today last week. “If there is a pretty girl, [reporters] don’t know how to describe her other than being sexy. It has such a negative connotation to it. You don’t say those kinds of things to frame it like that for a guy or even sometimes talk about it, but it seems like with female athletes, if they are pretty, [reporters] only know how to describe them in a sexual way. I don’t care, but I just wonder why we can’t talk about it in a different way.

“Why can’t there be other words for it? Why does it have to be somewhat negatively twisted?”

To which a reporter asked: “What would be a good word to describe a pretty girl?”

“Just something without the word ‘sex’ in it,” Patrick said.
