Thanks for asking, but my vagina doesn't really feel like getting into the Ines Sainz versus Jets issue. Here are some bullet points from my brain instead:
I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED: I wasn't there, so I have no idea what happened to Mexican television reporter Ines Sainz that day at Jets practice. I suspect that it was legitimately upsetting, because Sainz is a beautiful woman who, judging from the many galleries I've seen of her, often wears sexy clothing -- I'm sure she often gets a lot of "attention" of various sorts from people, so for her to be upset about a particular day at Jets practice makes me suspect something quite upsetting did in fact happen. The few members of the Jets organization who I've met have been very nice, and I thank Mark Sanchez for the constant stream of traffic he sends to my blog via "Mark Sanchez hair" searches -- but who knows, there could be some assholes in the organization. Again, I have no idea what happened.
THERE'S NO DRESS CODE IN SPORTS: It is not clear to me that there is an accepted code for "appropriate" sports reporting attire for either men or women, in our country or others. As long as someone is not dressed obscenely and they're not purposefully causing a distraction with their outfit, I don't think it's an issue. If you're reporting from the sidelines of a football field in a bathing suit, or covering a red carpet in a dress made of smelly meat, or sitting at a press conference in a firefighter's suit, those are inappropriately distracting. If you're wearing tight jeans and a blouse and you happen to be hot, that may be distracting to some, but I don't think it's inappropriate. Query whether your cleavage will elicit serious football answers to your questions, but if your aim is to get fun footage for a fluff piece on Mark Sanchez, then your outfit is quite appropriate.
Men can get away with wearing a sport coat and be appropriate for a number of different events. For women, attire can be trickier. Personally I don't like to feel out of place with my clothes. When I've covered red carpets, I've worn a dress. When I've covered Playboy Golf lingerie parties, I've worn a pink sweatsuit (if I were built like Ms. Sainz, perhaps I would have worn lingerie). When I've covered Super Bowl media days, I've worn jeans and a t-shirt. Some other media members at Super Bowl wear suits, but the point of my coverage was to get casual interviews with athletes joking around, so my outfit was appropriate to my coverage.
Reporters for politics and business tend to wear suits, as do the subjects of their reporting. Hollywood reporters tend to wear club-like attire, as do their subjects. For whatever reason, sports reporters don't wear warm-ups or towels, so I see nothing wrong with one who wants to wear sexy jeans.
DRESS CODE IS IRRELEVANT ANYWAY: if harassment or inappropriate behavior took place, then that's an issue. I really don't care what any party was wearing at the time.
MEDIA SHOULD NOT BE IN LOCKER ROOMS: Why why why do teams still allow reporting from active locker rooms? I hear people argue that if you want the freshest reaction you need to be in the locker room. No, if you want the freshest reaction, you need to be in the shower, but we respect personal space enough not to go there. I think at some point in the old boys' club history of sports reporting, male reporters made their way into male locker rooms, and today that norm persists, even though we now have both male and female reporters in male and female locker rooms. This is really unnatural for both the reporters and athletes, and I would think it could contribute to inappropriate behavior by both uncomfortable reporters and embarrassed athletes. (Although, sorry, Clinton Portis but I don't care to ogle your naked package.)
Does Obama allow cameras in his bedroom as he gets dressed in the morning? Do television stars give Access Hollywood interviews in their towels as they come out of the shower? If I were setting norms, I would designate an area of the locker room that is absolutely private to allow athletes to shower and dress. Once they're decent, they can enter the media area of the locker room to speak to reporters while they finish lacing their shoes or brushing their hair. Wouldn't that be more comfortable and FCC-safe for everyone while still allowing very fresh reactions? Teams need media as much as media need teams. If we decide that no media should be present while athletes are naked, trust me, the teams and the media will figure out a solution so that quality sports reporting can continue.
CONCLUSION: Ines Sainz is hot. She would be hot no matter what clothes she chose to wear. Men and women are often sexually attracted to each other, but professionals in all industries should strive to not acknowledge sexual attraction in the workplace. Harassment is not acceptable, no matter what anyone is wearing.
