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.

Real pretty, Danica.
