If everyone could treat everyone as an equal then yes these laws would suck. Unfortunately we, the human race, have not yet reached that point and so sometimes we need these bills and laws.
Wow is there a lot of vitriol, misinformation and general idiocracy going on in the comments this week. I'll comment on them rather than Barbara's article. I won't be naming names I'll just be blindly responding to what stuck out as particularly awful Internet and/or human behavior.
I'll preface this by saying Barbara is a friend. What this means is that most of you will just believe he to be a brainless lapdog who agree with everything she says and is he to defend her. I don't want to hurt your feelings but I don't always agree with her (though I do here) and she doesn't need help defending herself... Unless it involves The First, then it's all hands on deck.
So where do I start, .. OK the C-bomb being compared to the word "dick."first I'll be fair, this is sort of an American thing but being that this is written from an American perspective those are the rules we use. Also I'm not going to give a full entomology class here. Just basics. IN America the "C" weird is pretty widely known as the foulest of the foul. The meaning behind its use is almost always the same and the meaning, not the word, is usually the point. Whereas the word "Dick" has never had that kind of power or hate being it. If you are serious about this point then I assume you also fight the use of wired like "jerk" "ass" and "shit"
Comparing the "N" word to that "S" word is... Well it's really offensive and counterproductive to any point you were attempting to make. It cheapened the harshness of all of the facts you gave to justify the comparison. I honestly believe you owe an apology to many different groups of people for that one.
Attempting to build an argument against Barbara's comedy based off of a few hand picked tweets is just silly. Maybe base it off of her actual act, maybe you've never written jokes before but it's a process. Please I invite you to go find Silverman or Schumer at an open mic. While you are at it write three minutes and give it a short yourself. Then go on and do give minutes, then ten minutes etc... Let's see how many things you write out make the cut. White you are at it have the guys to try those things out in a public place like twitter.
Lastly, talking about a private sexual experience doesn't make the act less private. Doing it in front of people would. Saying that taking about it makes it not a private moment is like saying she should be ashamed of it...
Basically what I am saying is, Grow up. Internet.
perhaps a new coach is in order. One who doesn't potentially have creepy thoughts about a 12 year old girl and one who will actually hold the other members of the team accountable for their own thoughts and actions?
way to sneak in the Breakfast at Tiffany's reference. Solid gold!
