I really don’t want to live in a society with no tolerance for humor.
Q: How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: That’s NOT funny.
Will they replace it with one that says: Feeling Prickly?
Is it sexist to assume that only men are subject to the stae that is the object of the pun?
Why, yes, I do believe it is.
All soccer is women’s soccer.
Oh, they would NOT have liked the Vesely MN hometown baseball team when they went back to wooden bats. They had teeshirts printed up that said, “We’re Sportin’ WOOD!”
Mob rule. Thugocrats. Everybody wants to be a petty dictator. Remember when noone freaked out about silly stuff - or they even laughed - because it was a free country? Remember when parents told their kids, "Don't make a federal case out of it"? Nowadays, what *isn't* a federal case?
Don’t Thorn me bro...
Women's sports are walking a tightrope. They want to be selling sport, not cheesecake, but good looks help sell tickets. I imagine this is a frustration -- U.S. women's soccer is among the best in the world, the USWNT brought home the Olympic gold medal, and girls soccer is firmly established through the collegiate level. Yet two women's professional leagues have failed financially, and yet a third attempt is now underway. So if you have an Alex Morgan, you find a way to get her picture out, but you don't want to cross the line.
This problem isn't limited to soccer or to women's sports by any means. In this country, men's professional football, basketball, and baseball roll in the dough. Hockey hangs in as a strong number four, and men's soccer has now grown to the point that it seems financially stable, with a tv contract. Everybody else starves.
We grouse about other countries that provide government funding for national and Olympic teams, but the fact is, we provide lavish funding, much of it public, through the university system, until graduation. Then most of our athletes are cut off. The superstars find sponsors, and everyone else scrapes by. I'm not advocating state funded professional athletics, but I do wish we could find club systems that provided better and broader support post college for the top players. And I hope that women's professional soccer can find a sustainable business model. I'd hate for our next World Cup and Olympic teams to be composed of young women who have all gone to Europe to play.
So if I have this right a woman can go on Slut Walks and feel empowered. She can dress like a whore, get drunk, flash her boobs and flirt with men constantly and that’s perfectly fine.
BUT DON’T YOU DARE IMPLY THAT SHE MIGHT BE HORNY!
You sexist pig.
“Pay attention to me!”
“All women are just sex objects to you!”
“Look at me!”
“Stop staring at my boobs!”
“Want to see my new piercing? Check out my new lower back tattoo.”
“Stop raping me with your eyes!”
The Feminist movement is mentally ill.
Crass perhaps, but not at all sexist. And this from the same people who trumpet the Vagina Monologues or whatever in the hell it is.
