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.

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. :angel:

well i wouldnt want any male reporters in the locker room with me. i used to walk around topless all the time. women DO have more to cover up than men.

Nah, most girls that I bother with go topless on the beach anyway. Girls actually have less to cover up. Their sexual organs are safely hidden away.

All the same, there is a certain asymmetry. I can understand female athletes feeling threatened by some male journalist barging in (unless it was someone as nice as me or wuneye). Male athletes would not feel threatened at all getting to strut their stuff in front of some female journo; quite the opposite (especially if it was someone as nice as you).

if you want to look it at that way, yes [unless they shave/wax/whatever].

BUT its still not acceptable for a girl to walk around topless like it is for a man. and im sure most female athletes wouldnt want every male journalist seeing their breasts.

and america doesnt have too many topless/nude beaches. and the ones we do have, scary freaks are at.

Lol, the middle paragraph is absolutely right of course. That is part of the "asymmetry" I referred to. Let's face it, guys are turned on by women's breasts, and female athletes are not going to want some male journalist there at close range being turned on by them. :)

Re the last para, though, it's something I always notice about American society. Americans fetishize breasts and breast size far more than Australians and Europeans. At the same time, they are far more prudish about breasts. There must be some historical reason for this.
