2. Re: L'affaire Ines Sainz - Sexism and discrimination in 

from Katha Pollitt:

I am really shocked that you would publish such a sexist,
woman-blaming piece.  You don't have to think Inez Saenz is a
journalistic genius to think she deserves to be treated
professionally and with respect by athletes.  This piece
smacks of 'she asked for it,' 'she's just a slut,' and other
slurs used since time immemorial to dismiss and excuse
sexual harrassment -- and worse-- from men.

from Navaa

how about you spare us this kind of nonsense? If you are
addicted to sports , and want to get into tawdry industry and
media details, such as tales of female misconduct (those poor
provoked boys in the locker room), how about sending it to a
private list? please. and thanks in advance.
