We’ve already opened the flood gates by letting Clinton Portis weigh in on this thang. So I guess we should let someone that knows well the power of the female body have at it.
Take it away, Jenn Sterger.
“This is the same woman that walked into the Patriots’ locker room about a year ago and asked Tom Brady to marry her. … So we have to kind of keep this whole thing in perspective, that she’s not exactly been this shrinking violet when it comes to being on the sidelines. There’s plenty of pictures of her out there at football games, at basketball games, and she’s not exactly appropriately dressed. And this is coming from someone like me. Look, I don’t play any games … I know my past and I know my role. I’m very aware of what’s been in my wardrobe in past years. At the same time, I’m 27 now and fighting gravity. … I’ve realized that if I want to be taken seriously in the business that I’m choosing to pursue, I’ve got to dress a certain way, I’ve got to look a certain way. That’s why I had my implants removed last year. That’s why I’ve really kind of taken a more conservative turn in how I dress. … Let’s put it this way, not all jeans and white T-shirts are created equal.”
“She accomplished exactly what she set out to do, are you kidding me? Exactly what she set out to do.”
“Look, you know, I’m sure at some point we’ve all been in certain situations that we wish we wouldn’t be in when it comes to our jobs. Regarding this whole thing, with men and women working side-by-side in certain fields, there’s always going to be a weird tension. … If you’re going to be in a man’s world, you’ve got to understand, one, your role, and understand that as much as we like to say things are equal nowadays, they really aren’t. As far as women have come, we are still not there yet. … I’m just as likely to get written up by HR as the guys are. But I understand that it’s part of being a part of the boy’s club. You understand what you sign up for in the beginning.”
“I don’t want to go into a men’s locker room, let’s put it that way. And not for the Clinton Portis-type reasons, because some of us can restrain ourselves and be adults. I just feel like if we don’t allow men into women’s locker rooms, the same should carry over.”
Is there anyone left to comment on this mess that hasn’t already? If so, send ‘em on over.
