This post was originally published on my JN 499 class blog at The University of Alabama, a course dealing with journalism ethics: https://uajn499.wordpress.com/2015/10/20/sexism-still-an-issue-in-sports-journalism-in-2015/
It was then later published on DoingEthicsInMedia.com, the website for the “Doing Ethics in Media: Theories and Practical Applications” textbook used for the course: http://www.doingethicsinmedia.com/wp/sexism-remains-an-issue-in-sports-journalism-in-2015/

Ask yourself, are you a male? Yes? No? If it’s the latter, then I don’t think it’s up for discussion.
While I could probably use this test in most areas of our masculine culture and get the same result nine times out of 10, it seems clear to me that it especially holds true in a field I know quite well – journalism.
