I know what goes on in locker rooms. Actually, if you went back to one of my first posts here, you'd see that I mentioned that the only difference playing mens hockey now and boys hockey then is that the older guys no longer wave their dicks in my face. I was very much part of the locker room fun. While I didn't have a dick to hang in some of the guys' faces, I did get a chance to suffocate them with sweaty boobs. But those were also the guys that I grew up with that I looked at as brothers-- never dated them, slept over their houses and nothing sexual would happen (I think the closest I ever got to hooking up with one of them was spin the bottle)-- you just don't cross that line with teammates. Male or female.

However, on the flip side, I usually take into account that some guys are uncomfortable with a chick in the locker room and know where to draw the line. I don't change facing them (this gives them and me privacy), put a towel around my waist, stuff like that. Yeah, I'll sit there in a sports bra and my shorts, but I don't get stark naked and will shower at home OR when the guys aren't going in there. But I was never a strip down so everyone can see my ass type of girl.

I have a lot of female friends who play hockey on guys teams and they're always the butt-end of jokes, no matter what. One of my friends was forced to change in the guys locker room because of the lack of another usable locker room to use prior to a game, and she was almost rap-ed by one of her teammates before someone called the coach.
Almost being ***** by her teammates is clear stupidity on their part and I don't think it's the norm. I'm sorry she had to go through that though.

My team nickname when I was a teenager was "****". There was also a kid named "tripod" and one nicknamed "DSL". We used to joke all the time about stuff like that, and to be honest, I never felt like any of it crossed the line since it was equally distributed. They respected me because I could play and because I would assert myself when they were out of line.

I don't have anything against girls playing on men's teams if they're good enough. I just don't understand why they would deal with the "jokes" they would face, regardless of how much they love competition. Women being allowed to share a locker room with guys IMHO should never be allowed unless the girl knows all of the guys on the team very well, and it would be better if she also had a brother or a member of her family on the team.
I understand where you're coming from, but as you get older the locker room changes.

I never considered it dealing with the jokes because I got just as much a kick out of them as the guys did, and gave it back equally. I realized what could happen in a locker room and made sure it didn't. Don't get me wrong, I have had my troubles with mens teams, but the few issues I've had haven't outweighed the fun and wouldn't stop me from playing with other guys in the future.

However, I have had a few relationships break apart because the guys were too insecure with my being in a locker room with other men. Everyone has this image of locker room gang bangs and stuff like that, but it's not the case everywhere. Some people are out to play, not score a piece of meat.

Good stuff though. It's nice to see the other side of things.
