Today’s Lady News: Sports Commenter Says Ines Sainz Was “Asking For It”

  • A Fox and NFL Network sports analyst, Brian Baldinger, has said that Mexican sports reporter Ines Sainz was sexually harassed by members of the Jets football team and staff because she was “asking for it.” (And yes, that’s a direct quote.)

“This Is Our Locker Room”: The Ines Sainz Scandal Begs The Question “Do Men Need A Man Cave?”

caveman photo

Most incidents of sexual harassment follow one of two scripts: 1.) How provocatively was she dressed? 2.) Is she just being a PMS-y humorless bitch and/or too sensitive? The story of Ines Sainz, the Mexican sports reporter who was sexually harassed by players and staff from the New York Jets, has forged a new narrative: What the heck was she doing in the men’s locker room? What kind of idiot is she — a former Miss Universe — to wade into that bath of testosterone?

Asking why Sainz violated macho airspace is not much different from putting her sartorial choices on trial. (And you’d best believe that’s happening, too.) It assumes men cannot control their behavior in the presence of a beautiful woman and they want — nay, need — a man cave where men can be men, damn it! There are more than a few Frisky commenters, not to mention public figures, who agree with this idea. When another reporter asked Sainz if she was OK after “hooting and hollering” when she entered the locker room with publicists, Jets player Chris Jenkins, for one, reportedly yelled, “This is our locker room!” Keep reading »

Hey, Ines Sainz: You Can Be Sexually Harassed And Still Not Feel “Offended” Or “Attacked”

Before this weekend, perhaps only Miss Universe Pageant fans or sports fans in Mexico had heard of Ines Sainz. But today, we know her as a beautiful sports reporter who was sexually harassed by members and staff of the New York Jets football team. Or wasn’t sexually harassed at all. Or is skeptical about whether to label what happened to her. In any case, Ines Sainz may not call what happened to her “sexual harassment,” but she did say this to The New York Post last night: “I felt very uncomfortable … Women should be treated professionally, and they deserve to be treated with respect.” Keep reading »

  • Ines Sainz, a sports reporter for TV Azteca in Mexico, claims players and coaches from the New York Jets catcalled her and used rude language while she was at a practice this weekend to interview Mark Sanchez.

Lingerie Football Could Be The Most Lucrative Women’s “Sport”

Apparently it’s not enough to play at Wimbledon with your bum hanging out, ladies.

Lingerie football, like puppy football, is not a real sport. But three cable networks are interested in broadcasting titillating tackles, according to Mitchell Mortaza, the Lingerie Football League’s founder. And why wouldn’t they want to broadcast it? According to the Orlando Sentinel, the games have the potential, from a business perspective, to be the most lucrative women’s sport — er, “sport.” The fact the women submit head shots for the pleasure of playing in bras, panties and garter belts apparently is negligible. “The women are comfortable once they understand how they’re positioned as athletes,” Mortaza told the Orlando Sentinel. “We don’t see it being an issue.” Yeah, I bet it’s really empowering, too!

Today’s Lady News: Kansas City Chiefs Player Says The Team “Imported” Women To Hotel Rooms

  • In an upcoming issue of ESPN The Magazine, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe reveals a woman was stashed in every hotel room at a game in San Diego in 2007. “Some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room,” Bowe said. “The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it ‘importing.’” Ick! Fellow player Jimmy Wilkinson has called Bowe’s comments “not true” and says he is making his married teammates look bad. [Kansas City Star]
  • A so-called “crisis pregnancy center” in Silver Springs, Maryland, is suing Montgomery County, Maryland, over a new law that would require it to post a disclaimer clarifying that it does not provide abortions, offer referrals to abortion clinics, and does not have a licensed medical professional on staff. Politicians enacted the law based on the belief that “crisis pregnancy centers” — which often pop up near legitimate abortion clinics — were intentionally misleading women to dissuade them from ending a pregnancy. The lawsuit filed on Wednesday by Centro Tepeyac Women’s Center, however, says the new law restricts their freedom of speech. [Washington Post]

Football Star Lawrence Taylor Accused In Rape Of 15-Year-Old Girl

Another day, another sports star accused of rape: Lawrence Taylor, a former football player for the New York Giants, was arrested today for allegedly sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl. The girl, whose identity will likely be kept secret because of her young age, was allegedly prostituted out by a pimp at a Holiday Inn in Suffern, New York. Police say the victim, a teen runaway from Bronx, New York, missing since March, was also allegedly beaten during the liaison, although it’s unclear who the beating came from. The girl reportedly texted her uncle while her pimp was driving back to the Bronx and he called the police, who intercepted the car. The teen was taken to a hospital, where she was treated for a punch to her face and given a rape examination. Taylor, who has had numerous past run-ins with the law involving drugs, will be charged with third-degree rape, which includes charges of sex with a minor. Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Saints Linebacker Scott Fujita Jumps Into Tim Tebow Commerical Debate

  • Have you been following the Super Bowl kerfluffle? During the game, CBS will be airing an anti-abortion commercial from the conservative organization Focus on the Family starring Tim Tebow, but the channel told a gay dating company called Man Date that their commercial would not be allowed to run. Now New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita has stepped into the fray by voicing his support for reproductive rights. On Tuesday, Fujita said he respects Tebow’s choice to be in the ad, but admitted “he and I might not see eye to eye all the way.” Fujita added that he was born to a teen mother and given up for adoption. “I’m just so thankful she had the courage and the support system to be able to carry out the pregnancy,” he said. “I wouldn’t expect that of everybody.” Jeez Louise, when did the dang Super Bowl become about politics?!
