Should women cover up to get respect?

I have been focused on the news story about the female reporter treatment in the locker room and on the sidelines.  The fact that she was dressed “provocatively” is front and center.  I have noticed that radio personalities, sports writers, etc.  comment more about the woman’s outfit and not the behavior of the players.

Not surprising.  I am curious what everyone thinks about how a woman’s clothes impacts the way she is treated.  If she is not covered enough does it mean she wants to get disrespected?

What are your thoughts on female reporters in sports? Do you think they belong in the locker rooms to interview players?

I have regretted wearing a particular outfit because I ended up getting male attention that made me uncomfortable.   The thing is, when dressed conservatively, I have still received more of the same attention that made me uncomfortable.  Should women have to cover up to get respect?

so I pretty much eliminated it by learning how to utilize the GA PINES system,

There’s nothing wrong with that…what you did was minimize and maximize at the same time and I thinks that’s rather smart of you Princess….saves $$$.

@Kimmie?

If u taking just risk and HIV alone woul the risks not be the same if there is no protection either way?

Cheating in itself presents risks for the unknowing partner whether he’s cheating with a man or woman?

In Stars’ case, she truly appeared desperate to marry.

We saw his moniker and opted to ignore it…

@Blue – Maybe Fred and the female reporter can work up an act for the Pink Pony. Hacking is a felony but stripping isn’t. Let’s keep Fred out of jail. He’s too cute to survive that environment.

@Melo women always say they can tell, NOTTTT most women are too tied-up with life to pay attention to what their SO maybe doing. Some are so desperate to have or keep a man they close those eyes and hope for the best…. Ladies keep those eyes open at all times….

For real right?! I mean really…he was/is as sweet as a 10lb bag of Dixie Crystal sugar and she didn’t know that? I wonder if they consummated the marriage and if so…did he barf afterward and feel all dirty…probably went against all he knew, po thang.

@Star Jones!

daamn right!
Clearly she just wanted a good husband. I think she knows. She was proly more dismayed by it not ignorant of it, especially now.

Brother is happy no question when u see him!

“Buff can’t hide the fluff!”

Actually, most gay dudes are pretty buff… Only stands to reason — the gym is like the ideal environment for them: a bunch of big, sweaty mens running around nekkid in the locker room / showers…

That’s why I boycott the gym! :lol:

@DC – im with you on keeping him outta jail…stripping not a felnoy but im afraid with him being so short, should they get raided, cops will think hes underage….worries worries….

did seem Star was anxious to marry, but must admit i thought it had something to do with the drastic weight loss…everything got smaller but her head..made her look like a bobble head!

@DD – ok, i was gonna yell at you, your the bad candy lady after all, but horse-ndale…..lmao

Melo – Take it from someone who’s dad was a dr and VERY FRANK with his discussions of such matters – NO woman wants to find herself in that situation. It’s an ENTIRELY diff ballgame and HIV is just one of the risks, protected or not. I can’t get into detail, but it’s pretty scary.

Plus, you are talking about bi women being receptive if their man finds out. Unless a dude is serious about keeping up his DL charade, most would be repulsed by a woman. Like Sassy said, barf & feel all dirty afterward!

Did she get a good husband or a gay husband?

Assuming u are hetero Leggs :lol:
husband and gay don’t rhyme.

It only rhymes in homo circles.

Star Jones did not admit to being gay so I doubt she was looking for that.

Star is a smart lady, I just feel like she became thirsty and dehydrated and wanted a wedding. Look at how she practically sold that wedding on “The View” and at the end of the day her antics with that wedding and marrying pie-man costed her that job.

LMAO @ swiss 3:45 and 3:48. i actually mess with s/o about how much time he spends in the gym and all the attention he gets when we’re in midtown. ya’ll pray for me.

what’s all this about star’s ex? i didnt know she had the same ‘fairy’tale ending as the exhale chick. i saw a “life after” episode where he vehemently denied being gay and showed off his new lady friend.
