Really, I do not complain.
But I am going to make a point. There is innuendo running round these boards and it's fine really. Pictures of gals, barely dressed...I am fine with it. It's okay to make reference to breast and butt implants, obviously as a joke...this is not seen as crossing the line. But when I put an avatar up last night, as a joke in reference to my infamous buzz, it was deemed as inappropriate. I appealed the warning, but it has been denied, and that I am fine with as well.
I understand, I am a female on a sports message board. I come here on a regular basis, and see avatars of women that are in bikini's or positions that you men like...do us women complain no...merely because we are in a man's world. But seriously, where is the line drawn, I can joke with the best of you and have a good time, many times I have been the brunt of the joke, many of my attributes, we won't mention them...i can take it and dish it out. I have a blast with my peeps on the college basketball board. I am trying to state a fact that the avatar I had up last night was a text avatar, you really could not read it unless you purposely enlarged it. It was put up in a joking fashion...so this is inappropriate?
It is rather frustrating to come on here as a sports fan day in and day out and put up with sexism, but after all that is the world of sports. I have been a sports fan for so long, you become oblivious to it after a while. I do not understand how certain things are judged inappropriate, while other things that have been on these boards for so very long are not...someone said earlier this is a cookie cutter approach, and that is absolutely correct. Things have gotten out of hand, and needed to be addressed. But these things have needed to be addressed for well over a year, it seems as though the approach is rather rash...
