Ines Sainz is yet another woman who is being blamed for a man's bad behavior. After the NFL was asked to investigate harassment charges against the Jets players and a coach, Sainz was immediately attacked for dressing too provocatively. She tweeted back, showing a picture of herself on the day in question, on the field, in jeans and a white button-down shirt.
Then these photos from her website appeared. Yep, they're sexy.
Ines Sainz is a former Miss Spain. She's an extremely attractive woman (hey, just ask FHM) who also happens to be a sports reporter. The last time I checked, you didn't need unseemly facial hair -- or balls -- to report on games.
When Sainz is in the locker room, she's asking questions as reporters do. She's not giving a lap dance. When she posts sexy photos on her website, she's showing off her assets and creating an image of a strong, sexy woman. The two are not incompatible.
If you think women who dress in evening gowns and wear bathing suits are asking for unwanted sexual advances, harassment, or even rape -- you're beyond wrong. Men behaving poorly have no excuse, and they need to be held accountable for their actions. Period.
Do you think a child who is particularly adorable deserves to be molested by a pedophile? Do you think if you live in the best neighborhood you can afford, but not the best in town, you deserve to be robbed or attacked? Do you think men who look good at the gym deserve to be raped in the shower?
There is no excuse for disgusting behavior. Not even if you're a celebrity, an athlete, or a wealthy dude looking to get his kicks. If you think it's okay for these guys to demean an attractive woman, get in line, because you're fair game for humiliation too.
