In the Brett Favre scandal, when you see photos of Jenn Sterger, a Playboy Bunny in skimpy clothing is what comes to mind. Sterger is as know for her sideline reporting career as her sexy pictures all over cyberspace. In the midst of a heated scandal involving the Minnesota Vikings quarterback, Jenn Sterger’s reputation isn’t far from that of living in the Playboy mansion.
There’s little doubt readers are worried where this is going. Is this writer saying Jenn Sterger is at fault for Brett Favre allegedly sending her inappropriate texts, voicemails, and photos? Absolutely not. However, is it not true we’ve hardly seen images of Jenn Sterger not looking like some Playboy Bunny on or off the NFL field in skimpy clothing?
Sometimes You Have to Grow Up – Jenn Sterger May Keep that in Mind Now
It’s difficult for men and women to take someone seriously when they do everything they can to look revealing. Wearing sparse clothing that reveals a lot of skin on a testosterone-charged football field isn’t using great judgment for a professional.
Wearing tight-fitting, cropped shirts with short shorts while playing it up in a cowboy hat in an effort to keep the FSU Cowgirls celebrity isn’t the only way Jenn Sterger can go as being a serious reporter. Sometimes you have to grow up. Sterger may keep that in mind now. Or, it may not change one thing.
Jenn Sterger is aware that she’s in a male-dominated field and possibly feels she has to use her body to get ahead in the sports world. Sportscaster Erin Andrews is very successful, but wears clothes that are professional and she still rocks the sexy look without coming off as a Playboy Bunny at football games.
If Brett Favre Acted on Bad Behavior, it’s Unacceptable
Did Jenn Sterger do anything to encourage Brett Favre in the scandal they both find themselves in? Even if she did, Favre is wrong for doing anything to act on bad behavior if he actually did any of the things he’s accused of. If he was tempted in any way, he needed to mind his manners and remember he was already married to a beautiful wife.
The NFL is looking into the case to see if Favre violated in codes of conduct regarding alleged texts, voicemails, and photos to Sterger. Neither party is commenting on the scandal as the investigation continues.
Will Women Reconsider Wearing Skimpy Clothes in a Male Dominated Field After this Scandal?
Will this scandal around Brett Favre and Jenn Sterger be a lesson to women entering a career heavily dominated by men? In a case where Jenn Sterger has actually modeled for Playboy and Maxim magazines, she sustains that image as part of her fame.
When women think it benefits them to wear clothing that truly accentuates their figure, it’s vital they don’t aim for the skimpy look as their only tool of empowerment. Less isn’t always more.
