  •  Gender Bias (6+ / 0-)

    It's weird, but I think nothing of seeing another man naked, but would look away from a naked woman.  

    Not because there's anything wrong with it, simply to preserve the modesty and decorum of the opposite gender.  Weird, huh?  But that's how I was raised.

    Since I'm more violating the modesty of the male (as the female is sexually uninteresting to me as a gay man) it makes even less sense.

    •  That subject still comes up (7+ / 0-)

      in discussions of women reporters in men's locker rooms after a game, and vice versa. If you're a sports reporter out to do your job, that's pretty much a requirement. A friend of mine last year asked me how I would handle it (as we watched the coverage of one of the SF Giants' locker room celebrations); I told her, "I'm 53 years old -- those dudes ain't got nuthin' I haven't already seen."

      There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
