I think I missed something In “Portis apologizes after making comments about female reporters” (Web, Sept. 15).

What I missed was a report on the number of male reporters allowed into women’s sports locker rooms. To my knowledge, that number is zero.

If I am wrong, I would be happy to hear from the vast army of women’s sports organizations reporting on the number of male reporters invited into their players’ locker rooms in all areas of women’s sports. I further noticed in the article that there is an Association for Women in Sports Media. Is there a gender-equivalent Association for Men in Sports Media demanding access for male reporters to women’s locker rooms? If not, all those unemployed male sports media persons should immediately form one and demand not only equal rights but also equal access.
