Karyn Bryant’s weekend motorboat adventure

Karyn Bryant, the female reporter at the center of MotorboatGate, speaks out on what she thought of Rampage’s behavior. Here’s some quotes from her interview with Steve Cofield:

“I don’t think that we should all be treated so … preciously. I have a couple of issues because now i feel like ther are certain female reporters who are offended by this and are completely entitled to be so. But now it’s like there’s this unwritter rule that I was supposed to really be offended because I’m a female journalist and you know there are rules and I’m not supposed to be okay with that because ‘Women have worked really hard to get into the locker room and if you stop for a minute to be okay with that kind of joke you’re bringing us all down.’ And I don’t think that’s fair.”

“In that instance, no, I didn’t feel like I needed to stand up for every other woman. I think there’s a lot of women arguing that and have done that, and again he didn’t touch me. If he’d done to me what he did to the Cage Potato girl, it’d be a different story.”

“It’s a really difficult position because other women are making it out that I’m supposed to be really mad and I just can’t be because I’m not.”

“It’s a really odd position to be in because I don’t want to draw the fire of other female reporters because certainly some awful things have happened to them. And it’s not fair and it’s not okay. And by me saying this interview is okay certainly doesn’t condone it for everybody in every situation. But in this case, I don’t think it was a big deal.”

Funny factoid: the cameraman filming the interview was actually Karyn Bryant’s husband Wade.
