I blame the media.
Humans are going to do what they do.
Why does society hold a dumb footballer to a higher standard than a university educated lawyer, when it comes to issues like group sex or adultery, or the like ?
Because the media tells us to.
Because the guy who’s going to be a lawyer doesn’t get the adulation and special treatment from the time he’s a young teenager that the ‘footy stars’ do. And lawyers don’t go away on team camps where abhorrent sexual practices are encouraged (I mean the kind where, for example, someone agrees to a liaison with one player and next minute half his teammates are joining in; or someone hoping to maybe get a player’s number and become a WAG is used, discarded, and then mocked in group chats and the like).
I’m sure there are plenty of lawyers who engage in all sorts of seedy stuff, but is it an encouraged part of ‘team bonding’ the way it is with athletes? And one that’s instilled from a young age? You can have any girl you want because you won the mock trial for your school last week?
