If you can play, you can play

Damn right.

No matter how much I might dislike Burke for his view on how to build a hockey team, or how he handles the press, I'll support his position on this 100%.

One of the comments from the article:


One of the reasons we generally have separate change rooms for men and women is so that women don't have to be subjected to sexual oogling by those who are turned on by, and may have sexual designs on, their private parts. Even modern, empowered female hockey players still use a separate women's change room.

So why should men have to put up with what most women won't?

Guess what, "Fred_001"?

There are already gay men in the change rooms. In a room of 25+ guys, there is a decent chance at least one of them is gay.

He's probably seen your penis.

And he just doesn't care.

While I'd like to refute that point by pointing out the lasting impression required by the magnificence of the subject matter, I just can't do it with an internet straight face.

Good for the Burkes, all the players participating, and the NHL. The whole "I don't want a fag looking at my junk" argument should have been retired a long time ago. Anyone secure in his or her sexuality wouldn't give a damn if someone's glance happens to linger a bit longer than normal on their naughty bits, intentionally or otherwise. The funny part is, these homophobes who are so scared of being treated like sex objects virtualy always have a tendency to objectify others, and project that tendency onto everyone else.

Peyton reportedly out in Indy. Kirk Cameron has yet to comment.

We all knew that was coming, but still sad to hear. I wonder if he might choose to retire?

Answering my own question, according to ESPN, sources suggest he intends to play.

Who, Kirk? He'll come around.
