  • The Girl in the Dugout

    I thought this was very much related to a recent topic on this forum.

      Liam, just which topic are you talking about? Maybe I missed something in the dugout report referring to nudity. ?? I usually try to keep a sharp eye out for that.
      b.l.

        Eggsually, I was in error. It was another conversation in another forum. The conversation was about the sexes being separated in sports. Especially the fear of sharing locker rooms and allowing the opposite sex in for any reason. It also has to do with the attitudes of sexism that are rampant still in our U.S. culture.....not to mention attitudes toward nudity. I have learned that in other countries, women in men's locker rooms for a variety of reasons is common. San Diego seems to be a hot bed of acceptance! Earlier a female trainer was, after much debate, allowed to fulfill her graduation requirements by being a trainer for a local university football team. After the initial furor, all was well and she was accepted by the team, coaches and athletic department. I'm sure there are still people who are still outraged by the idea, but they have been mostly quiet. Mr. Hernandez with his sexist views were a blip on the wave of acceptance.
