Former Penn State women’s basketball player Jennifer Harris is suing for discrimination because her coach “pressured” her to dress and look more feminine. Gee, we really needed our federal court system further clogged with important matters like this one.
Wait a second. Are you telling us that female basketball players are not feminine-looking? No way. Imagine that. Who’d a thunk it? Like the rest of America, we’ve been not watching the WNBA, and we never knew.
Oh, and guess who’s representing “Ms.” Harris in the lawsuit? Why, it’s our feminine, lovely friends at the National Center for Lesbian Rights.
Maybe if they’d pay a little more attention to looking less butch and more attractive, women’s basketball players might someday attract an audience. But don’t count on it. They also have to play a decent game of hoops. And they don’t. Like we said, Exhibit A: WNBA. No looks. No game. No dice.
