It is what it is when you wear what you wear.
Alright on the Today Show they did a story on the sports broadcaster, Ines Sainz, that is accusing the Jets of harassment. I heard a little something about this before but didn’t get the whole story until this am. I am honestly floored by these accusations from her. If you think of yourself as a professional anything then you must dress accordingly to your profession. You don’t see the guy sportscasters wearing board shorts, tight T-shirts and ball caps..no they are wearing suits and ties. They wear this because they are 1. Professionals and 2. they have respect for their profession. They go on to show what she was wearing when the ‘harassment’ took place, very tight jeans and a short sleeve button down. The jeans were tight, cute, but very tight. Then they go on to show pictures of her on a website in lingerie and other non existent clothing, then they showed her in a photo layout when she won sexiest sports broadcaster in a little bathing suit type thing. And she still wonders why she was whistled at?
**please know that I am all about some cute clothes that show off your curves and the fact they make you feel good while you wear them. I’m not knocking her for wanting to look attractive by any means BUT you are not at the mall or a club or out to dinner with your girlfriends, you are doing your JOB so dress accordingly**
Ok so back to the subject at hand. She goes on in her interview to say that she has done nothing wrong in the choices she has made with her clothing while on the job. Really?!? You aren’t reporting on women’s basketball (not that it would be ok to wear said clothing there either) you are reporting on the NFL with big burly men in the locker room while wearing skin tight clothing and your boobs are hanging out and you are attractive to begin with and you think a man isn’t going to make a comment or even think something in his head? They are men..this is what they think about 24/7 plus they just had to think about football for 3 hours so when their brains can finally rest what is the first thing they are going to think about especially when you wear that? Their brains went into overdrive. Come on now..it’s not rocket science. Even on the Today Show she couldn’t button an extra button so we weren’t overwhelmed by her cleavage. It’s all about respect and self respect. This would have been completely appropriate when you are out and about for the night..not on national television at 7am. I’m pretty sure that Merideth wanted to slap her by the end of the interview. If you want to be taken seriously in this profession then you need to show some respect towards it and yourself.
I am not condoning any harassment here what so ever because it’s never ok but it is what it is when you wear what you wear. It’s like me leaving the house with major cleavage showing a skirt so short you can almost see my butt and heels and then being absolutely appalled and disgusted when I get whistled at or comments are made walking down the street. Men are men and the way they think will never change..it’s in their make up. If you don’t want to be harassed, whistled at, comments made then cover up your body and quit letting it all hang out while you are doing your JOB. Save your skimpy stuff for the club.
It’s a shame that she is going to make such a fuss out of all this and the Jets are going to have the spotlight on them and most likely be reprimanded when all of this was brought on by her and the choices she made before walking out on the field or into the locker room.
Get a clue lady! I’m rooting for the Jets on this one you are on your own.
