But when it comes to auto racing, the biggest name is only the biggest name because she takes off her clothes. Danica Patrick is no better than a common stripper. She can't get over on her talent, so she gets over using her body. There's a name for that, and that name is wh*ore.
Please enlighten me here. When has Danica Patrick ever "taken off her clothes"? In the SI swimsuit edition, she is shown in a bikini
. You've never turned your head at a woman in a bikini before? Tell me you've never looked at a Playboy magazine. Oops, silly me - you probably just bought it to read the articles, huh?
Did your Dad tan your hide as a kid for stealing his National Geographic magazines and making a messy in your bedroom closet?
Again - I reiterate - Danica Patrick is very well respected by her male peers and she has the numbers to earn that respect. If her husband doesn't have a problem with her wearing a bikini and posing for a magazine spread, who are you or anyone else to pass judgment?
There is a helluva lot more to worry about in this day and age with regard to raising children than them seeing a beautiful young woman in a bikini who makes an honest living, has never been in trouble and who is truly comfortable within her own skin.
