For open hockey and clinics I change in the womens locker room (different rink than my mens league), it's one thing to change with guys who you know and who expect it, but it's different to walk in on a locker room full of half naked guys when they aren't expecting it. At least, that's the way I see it.
Somehow that's never stopped my mens league team, and I'll pound beer with them. I remember one particularly graphic conversation that started with discussing forechecking and the merits of soft dumps versus hard dumps that ended, well, someplace I can't talk about here.
Sounds just like my league. I'll strip down as far as shorts and sports bra, and them as far as boxers, and on occasions where we need to change completely we duck into the bathroom for a second.
Well that is fine with me honestly if for a men's league which may require a name change to Adult League or something. I see more and more women playing, played with one today at pickup ... she was learning and not very good at all. Most of the women I play with are pretty good players, it is nice to see.
The 16 year old I posted about who changed in our lockeroom who almost walked in on about 4 or 5 of us with nothing on 5 minutes prior was a minor which seemed to make it the thing that made it uncomfortable for me.
I really honestly was looking at the equipment bag and my feet as to not feel like a sicko creep for checking out a 16 year girl who was honestly very pleasant to look at. Maybe if she were ugly as a shaved mule ass and built like a mack truck I would not have felt this?
It was awkward in any case and not a "just one of the guys" things or moments. I really do not wish to be a 42 year old man with a 24 daughter who felt uncomfortable around a 16 year old young lady and left me feeling like a pervert.
In that sense I did not ask to be exposed to something that would make me feel uncomfortable. I could just imagine what would happen if I went into an all girl pickup / shinny lockeroom and just started undressing.
I would be arrested in a double standard thing.
But anyway the next time i will be more prepared for it and not so shocked by it.
I mean I do not wear my compression short which are also padded Farrells under my pants to the rink. I am getting naked to put them on.
Now every time I hear a door hinge I will be diving for cover

Well thanks, I am skimming through it. I hope I didn't start another one here by accident.
