It’s been six months since Michael Sam was drafted into the Rams as the first openly gay player in the NFL. Recently, ESPN ran an update about the defensive end’s career and focused on the player’s shower habits.

Today, writer Zach Stafford joins us to take a look at the media’s odd fascination with Michael Sam’s shower habits, and why straight men look at each others dongs in the locker room a lot more than gay men do.

  1. Fascinating conversation about Michael Sam and gender and sexual politics in the men’s locker room. Terrible to see that Sam got cut from his team.

    Your discussion about Parker Marie Molloy is also interesting, but not surprising. As you know, this is not the first time Parker has quite dramatic confrontations with trans writers, for example with Calpernia Addams. Here is Addam’s statement regarding this issue:

    In response, Kelli Ann Busely coauthored a piece with Marti Abernathy addressing Calpernia Addams and Andrea James’s controversy with Parker Marie Molloy:

    I really hope positive understandings can come out of these debates.
