That's right.

Everyone is deplorable, except me.

In the current buzzword definition, deplorable people are, racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic.

I'm going to focus on sexism.

Sexism is defined as;

"Prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex."


Why I am not sexist?

Because I think that gender separation in the arena of sports is wrong. It is a gender bias. A gender discrimination. Men's sports, women's sports are sexist.
We separate the sexes in almost all sporting events.

Even golf has separate tee-off points based on gender.

And everyone is okay with that except me.

So you all are deplorable.

We should have equality in all things.

Anything else is a bias and is discriminatory.

Shame on all you deplorable people! (Now vote for Trump)



I'm not ok with it, at least not in the sense that an average tennis player like Serena Williams can use her average talent to make $100m's whilst a better player can't even make a decent living on the men's tour. All because Serena doesn't have a penis. That is sexism at it's worst.

Average talent? I'd put money on the fact that Serena Williams would kick your ass in tennis every time she played you.

Anyone who likes sports is deplorable in my opinion.

Anyone else think it's weird how when you say a word over and over it loses meaning and starts sounding different or wrong?

What about the very best male tennis players? Do they make < = or > than Serena Williams?
I'm asking because I don't know and want the answer.
Granted, sponsorhip has a corrupting effect on the higher-ranking athletes.

Bumped for righteousness, frazzlecat. I think considering
the source, it's [C] v. country now. Its out there and the
plug in the drain is finally away. She's goin' DOWN.

And for the gender discrimination you speak of, I had an
instant picture of George Stephanopoulos and Rhonda
Rousey doing a round inside the anchor fence. She in
my imagination became not only a lot prettier in
seconds; but our ABC mic hand got busted up like a
china shop. Yeah and I'd pay 20 for a Pay-per-View of it.

EDIT:: I want a YT garage band,
Don: Reince and the Reprehensibles: because we are what we do.
I love breaking garage windows with noisy hobbies-- 15:1 Chevys,
cupcake alt-metal, whatever.

I do tend to hang the hyperbole out there to a fault, Mousy.
In a nutshell, we all have our strengths... and my deplorable-
ness as an old guy tend to make things talky. Sorry about that...
But I AM working on not bringing up politics at parties
anymore: I get too many responses just like yours.

I am quite sure she would.
I'd have my money on a lowly ranked men's player to kick her ass every time he played her, though.

If I worked for any MSM I'd be dead in a week. Maybe two
working days... too politically caustic.

Carlin had a bad sense of humor at the last, and a pony tail..
I however have a taste for really evil and rare single malt
Scotches, instead of Vicodin and Chardonnay.
Easily as self destructive but painfully slower.
My almost dormant kidneys are beckoning, gotta go..

EDIT::and I noticed also that some of my posts aren't making it
into the stack, as well as my edits. Must be doing something
delightfully appalling to some powerful sensibilities. cool.

ok...well when she is compared to the women she plays she is tip top. So what's your point? If she plays Roddick or Novak and loses, then she lost to a guy.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but there is a Men's Tennis and a Women's Tennis

You are making a false comparison to prove some whacked out point. Does she play in the men's league? If she does and if she is placed number one because she is a woman then you have a point. Problem is your point is meaningless because she is number one in the woman's league. Meaning, during her prime, no other woman could top her play or accomplishments.

See the way I see it you are coming at this in one of a few ways.

1. Straight comparing her to men. Which is dumb...because she plays in the woman's league...and wins there. So why the comparison at all? She is NOT on the men's top league list because she isn't on the list at all.

2. You may be trying to feebly make some point that women's sports mean nothing. If that is the case, then you aren't being dumb, just sexist. mean to be fair, I really have no clue what your point is. And bear in mind my ideas are just ideas because your first post is so far out and whacked out that I don't even get it.

You don't like that she is making big money because in comparison to Nadal and Novak, she can't win? The problem is with YOU. She shouldn't be compared to Novak and Nadal...she doesn't play men's league

So what is the overall point you are making?
