I'm yet to see male reporters broadcasting from the locker after female sporting events with their towels falling off and all the sexually suggestive pics and unintentional dong shots showing up on the Internet. Yea men should be able have their docks covered by nothing but a towel and not get turned on by an attractive on-air female personality admiring their tattoos. While attending the NFL combine I was asked to drop my shorts to be checked for a hernia. Being asked I did so without thinking only to look to the gawking by several women in the room. Women the first conservative republicans no thanks to Ayn Rand and the suffrage movement. Now you wonder why they want to give you invasive ultrasound wands.
