Who thinks this tired, overdone joke is clever? Is it the sexist aspect of it that makes it so appealing? Because a similar sense of superiority seems to overwhelm these jokers when they spout off something about UM women being ugly.
|1 week 3 days ago||Sexism like this is all over||
Sexism like this is all over the place whenever anyone gets accused of sexual assault, so that sarcasm tag was sorely needed.
|1 week 3 days ago||It's common for accusers to||
It's common for accusers to get harrassed merely for making accusations especially in high-profile cases like this one. Maybe she just doesn't want to deal with that after getting assaulted (allegedly, for the pedantic).

Why don't sabermetricians drive standard transmission? Because they don't believe in clutch.

In the context you use it, I certainly don't think so. The only purpose measuring fandom could serve is derailing the thoughts and feelings of fans you think are "beneath" you. As far as I'm concerned, enjoy the football games any way you can (without hurting anyone of course). If that means showing up early, staying reasonably sober, and always staying to the end, so be it. If that means getting there late, being very drunk, and leaving when the team is getting whooped on, that's great too.

The PC police are out to get you. Soon you will become mindful of your words and actions, then those evil feminazis will have won.

It's safe to drink the water in the UP.

You spelled "James" wrong.
|1 week 5 days ago||Basing opinions off of||
Basing opinions off of emotion and speculation is perfectly acceptable. You should, however, be someone who is able to change your opinion if it ends up being wrong.
|1 week 5 days ago||Having strong, consistent||
Having strong, consistent moderation is incredibly important for PR on a website as it gets bigger. I think the moderation on this site is very good, although there's obviously a ton of sexism and the homophobia gets really bad whenever a player comes out of the closet.
That said, having very little moderation can lead to some extreme examples like Reddit which has large hate-group communities (Stormfront, Mens Rights Activists, Red Pill). They also have the issue of being a pedophile haven where the trade child porn. It got so bad that the media got involved and the admins finally had to step in. I guess what I'm saying is: I'm happy the moderation here is as good as it is.

It might if that comment was a front page post on their website.
|1 week 5 days ago||I think you should read some||
I think you should read some articles about how the millenial generation differs from gen x, boomers, etc. It's pretty fascinating what these people are accomplishing without all the safety nets that were in place for the generations before them.

I don't think you understand how pervasive twitter is. If it's on twitter, it might as well be on facebook. You're splitting hairs.

Being white sure is hard...
But seriously, I like his attitude as long as he keeps backing it up.

Being sexist isn't a particularly endearing quality.

"I'm sorry you don't like facts."- someone who doesn't understand statistics
I'm relieved though. That's the first time I've heard that phrase without it being preceded by a bunch of racist talking points.

Because the franchises and their owners aren't.

When are people, especially celebrities and athletes, going to learn to stop buying, you know, NICE THINGS TO PUT IN THEIR HOMES?!?! No possible benefit can outweight the nightmare when (not if, but WHEN) someone breaks in and steals stuff. Just dumb, dumb, dumb.

I didn't look at the picture, but it appears that grown ass adults are freaking out about seeing a penis.

Gonna go to the bars and pretend I'm an undergrad again and stroll into the stadium around kickoff. Can't wait.

Oh cool. A fraction of the dictionary. Interesting.

Well yeah, there was that whole rape thing...
But I understand how you wouldn't like him even if you think he didn't do it. The guy lacks so much self-awareness and maturity, it's baffling.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Of all the things we have to||
Of all the things we have to complain about, the most baffling to me are the noodle and the fireworks. The noodle was dumb, but it wasn't really a big deal. I was very surprised that people got so upset about fireworks. I think that would have been fun to see.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Of course you are free to use||
Of course you are free to use whatever kind of language you please. I do find it unsettling that so often in the media, on the internet, and in real life, people are very strongly opposed to the so-called "PC police." I feel like that energy would be better spent taking a second to consider how others feel. On the other hand, you can probably say my time would be better spent not trying to make America more wimpy or something.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think it's too much||
I don't think it's too much to ask that people try to use mature language that isn't widely offensive.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I've heard people complain||
I've heard people complain about the term, but mostly because of the sexism part of it.

I was wondering when someone would ask "But what about the men?"

Yeah, everyone knows that. I would say another goal is solidarity, though. Sometimes we forget that there are real people with real feelings with these diseases. I bought a Lions hat, which I was going to buy anyway, with some of that pink flare because my mother had breast cancer. She was happy to see me wearing it around because to her it meant that she was in my thoughts even when I was making a mundane purchase.
