Is it ok for men reporters to enter woman locker rooms?

What are your thoughts? Because in 1975, the NHL allowed New York Times reporter Robin Herman into the men's locker room, making her the first woman to enter a hockey team clubhouse. The MBL, NBA, and NFL followed shortly after, and in 1990 all associations allowed women in the locker rooms. I am all about 50/50 rules for men and woman but how do you feel.

I think with adequate notice, there isn't a problem.

I don't know that it is the same. I am all for equality but I think there is a difference in women feeling secure and safe in a female locker room, free from invasion of a male. Personally, I would not want a man in a room where I might be changing after a game. I suppose it depends on the person though. If all the women on the team were on board or if there were specific times that were cleared and it was understood that there could be a male present, then it could be ok.
