In her column on Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, who was suspended two games by the NFL after his arrest for domestic violence, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins criticized the light response to Rice's actions, asking how the league could justify "a two-game penalty for a running back going all Flintstone on his wife."

As Martin Kramer of Takoma Park, Maryland, wrote, "Fred Flintstone had his faults, but he loved and respected his wife Wilma, often referring to her as his queen."

As they have every year since 2009, the rowing team at England's Warwick University has gotten naked to raise money for an anti-homophobia charity.
The rowers have stripped down to produce an annual nude calendar, the proceeds of which will benefit Sport Allies, an organization that aims to combat homophobia and transphobia through the power of sports.
In its five years of existence, the project has proven to be a valuable fundraiser, selling over 15,000 copies in its last edition. A large part of this success is due to the crew team's enviable physiques, but just as important is the calendar's tasteful adherence to the Austin Powers rule of nudity: All the rowers, even the coxswains, are just barely covered up in the crucial areas.
