Double Standards

Folks, this is the sort of news you can't make up. People wouldn't believe it.

An excerpt of the linked story?
Two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders who allegedly were having sex with each other in a bathroom stall at a Tampa, Fla., nightclub were arrested and charged early Sunday following a run-in with patrons and police.
As Howard Stern would say, "Hey now!"

Now, out of respect for our male readers, I'll pause a moment to let the visual sink in and fade.

Still with me? Ok.

I'll close with a brief social commentary. Picture the same story, except with the folks involved being Panthers players, and not cheerleaders. Two guys caught in a stall, practicing their snap count, let's say ....

Try and imagine the impact of that story, and compare it to the impact of the one I linked. Equality? Yeah.
