Thumbs down It's sexist not to allow male sports writers into female locker rooms after the game

if chick journalists can go into male locker rooms, then dudes should be allowed into theirs

How about blocking all journalists from both men's and women's locker room? I don't understand why interviews have to be conducted there.

No I think it's fair. Women can go into men's but men shouldn't be allowed in women's locker rooms.

This is because rape cases for women are so high. When does a woman ever rape a man? Never. So that's why the men don't need protection.

You expect a male reporter to rape a female athlete in front of 10 female witnesses? The current system is sexist and discriminatory. Kick the women out or let the men in.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

No of course not, lol but that's what they'll be thinking, and it's like asking for trouble. It will be creating an environment where female rape cases will likely to increase.

You could make the same argument for not allowing women reporters into the men's locker room. A male athlete is more likely to commit rape than a male reporter (see: Roid Rage), and a female athlete is better able to defend herself from a male reporter than a female reporter is to defend herself from a male athlete.

Also think about it guys, women aren't turned on by graphically naked men, whereas men are. So the reporters are probably just going in there to perve on the women.

That's certainly true of most of the men on this board. I prefer naked women myself.
