Men’s Health Insults Every Female Sports Fan, Deletes Article

Men’s Health published an article about women and sports yesterday so offensive that it has already been completely scrubbed from the internet. Boston.com’s Hilary Sargent grabbed a screencap of this gem:

Foam finger LULZ. Guess what kind of reaction this generated?

The magazine quickly backtracked, deleting both the article and the tweet advertising it and apologizing on Twitter:

How that was not meant as condescending to women is a secret held safe among the Men’s Health editorial staff. Rumors that women like sports and are perfectly capable of appreciating and enjoying them on any and all levels available to men went unconfirmed at press time.

UPDATE – 11:07 a.m.: The editor of Men’s Health apologized on the Today Show, below:
