Women on Obama’s basketball court?

http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-349457

Post asserts that this is a ridiculous argument to have. The the concept of the old boys network is real, it is not the case here. I’m more concerned and happy with seeing a woman as Secretary of State, as was the case with the last 3 administrations, than worrying about who Obama enters the gym with. I’m more concerned with issues such as equal pay for women, which Obama supports and signed a law making it possible for women to sue for it. I am 150% for equal rights, but I believe some arguments weaken the debate of the day and this is one of them. Will we ask next how many women he plays with? Are they on his team or against him? On that note, how many Asians and Latinos does he play with? Again, I’m happier to see a Latina Supreme Court Justice than a gym-mate. We all should be. We will have a woman president in the next 1-3 elections and I can’t wait to see it. While the struggle for equal rights is far from over for women, this basketball debate sets the cause back. Lastly, if women do get on the court, it’s all good but I am also the married father of 2 girls. Trust me, guy time is important whenever you can get it! The ball’s in your court. What do you think?
