Sexism Rules as Brent Musberger Drools and Plays The Fool.

During the 15 minutes that I bothered to watch this train wreck of a game, it was my misfortune to witness the slobber fest that Brent Musberger committed over Katerine Webb. If you don’t know, Katherine Webb is the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron. If you haven’t watched the clip by now, the gist of Brent’s sexist mooning is this: If you become a quarterback, women will have no choice but to want you because of your status. As a feminist, I have a serious problem with this.

I love football. So much so that I would subject myself to watch two teams that I despise duke it out in a national title game. So much so that I would even watch a high school game televised from say, Boise Idaho, and even choose sides to root for a team I’ve never heard of. I’ve played the game and coached the game. I get excited over the NFL draft every spring, and get absolutely giddy when football season is just around the corner. I live and breathe football. I am truly a football geek, as is my partner. I love pretty much everything about it. What I don’t love about football is the sexist, patriarchal, and often misogynistic view and treatment of women through out the sport.

From the scantily clad cheerleaders to the ogling of player’s wives and girlfriends, women around the sport are objectified. Female broadcasters are pigeon holed into little more than providing injury reports and human interest stories from the sideline, while being addressed as “dear” or “honey” or getting hit on by a drunken Joe Namath, as was the case of Suzy Kolber a few years ago. Worse yet are the stories of domestic violence in the sport, such as Chad Johnson head butting his wife, because she dared to confront him over his cheating on her, or the story of Javon Belcher, who killed his partner because she was talking to him harshly during an argument. Sexual abuse and rape scandals are routinely covered up by football programs on the college, and even high school level. The sport I love is a painful glaring example of just how much our still male dominated society treats women as unequal chattel. It saddens me deeply.

Our society is sports dominated. A lot of men and women grow up in an atmosphere of competition, because of their long time participation in sports. Morality and values are shaped in this atmosphere, and as often is the case when it comes to football, patriarchy and misogyny is encouraged in order for boys to be molded into macho, brutal, football machines. I know this first hand: I witnessed this behavior when I played. Girls were objects to be conquered and fucked, rather than equals to share friendships and intimacy with. It was disgusting.

If our society is going to become truly gender equal, than women in football should not be treated as merely eye candy who can’t help themselves but fall high profile athletes. Get rid of the cheerleaders, open up opportunities in the broadcast booth, as well as front office, scouting, and even coaching jobs to women. Hell, it would be amazing to see a woman play in a big time college program, or even the NFL in my life time, not just as a kicker, but in other positions as well.

Football is a brutal game. However, it’s treatment of women is even more brutal. It has to stop. A good start would be Brent and Herbie not macking on player’s wives and girlfriends on national TV. It was juvenile, sexist behavior, and has no place in the sport- or anywhere else for that matter.

    I see know need to have cheerleaders at any of the NFL games. NY Giants don’t have them, and I know a couple of others don’t have them. What purpose is having them, when all they do is loving showing most of their tits and all of their legs…

      Lingerie football has got to go as well. It’s disgusting exploitation. There are professional women’s leagues that deserve our support. They may not be of the caliber of the NFL or NCAA, but they play hard and are a lot of fun to watch!

    This is my problem with Feminists, you say that Lingerie football and Cheerleading is wrong. Is anyone forcing you to do it? No? Then why the hell do you care if someone else wants too? As a male I have no problem with a man who wants to take his clothes off for money, nor do I find it degrading that women drool over a guy walking with his shirt off when he is well defined and muscular. But when the roles reversed, when a women decides she wants to dress provocatively or take her clothes off, god help us all for being “disgusting” human beings and “degrading women”.

      Objectification of women (or men) is demeaning. It places that person in a position to be viewed as somebody less than equal. A woman (or man) who is in that position for whatever reason, is reduced to an object viewed as something for consumption. Is that how you would like others to view you?

    to starbucks:

    today, march 3rd, i was driving north from pittsburgh and i got off of the highway to stop at the gas station right off of the wexford exit of i-79. after i got gas, i realized that there was a starbucks coffee shop not 200 feet away from me. i was returning from the pittsburgh rivers casino, where i had taken out $100 and was betting small bets on various slot machines – i had gotten up to $190 early-on…but eventually went down to $0. i hate to admit that i would’ve taken another $100 from the atm…i am happy that i got a “non-sufficient funds” message when i tried to withdraw from my spending account at bank of america. tlc said “don’t go chasing waterfalls,” and djt says “don’t go chasing losses”. though djt always chases losses. it’s so much easier than chasing the perfect specimen of manhood who has no interest in being associated with me (though it’s much more costly).

    anyway, i must say that i had thought of coffee shops (especially starbucks) as being full of politically-correct (liberal) bs – how surprised i was to see that the three coffee-clerks working at starbucks were all men. i, for one, am getting sick and tired of all of the overcompensations that society gives to the lesser gender in an effort to make them appear as man’s equal – overcompensations ranging from lesser military requirements to gender-based sports teams to high-heeled shoes to shoulderpads. wherever i go, i see females wanting to be seen as man’s equal…when these very overcompensations just label them as a bunch of masculine wannabees.

    again, it has made my day that this starbucks is the first business i have seen in a while with a staff of all men. i’m not saying that i haven’t seen a staff made up entirely of the lesser gender at starbucks stores, but it was definitely a mark of diversity to see an all-man staff in a society where all-female staffs are commonplace.

    i was actually wearing a t-shirt that i had designed online, which highlighted the “lesser” aspect of the lesser gender (two stick figures, one blue and one red, with arrows to signify broadening shoulders versus widening hips…with a bigger barbell next to the blue stick- figure…with the words “bodyheight, bodyweight, bodystrength” above and “all this AND a superior sex drive” below. it was a t-shirt advertising one of my websites (www.thelessergender.com), and it was kind of ironic that members of the lesser gender were nowhere to be found working at starbucks today. i must admit that if staffs consisting entirely of females were nowhere to be found (including at starbucks stores) then i don’t think i’d have reason to mock females with my shirts and my websites. however, all-wombn staffs are seen a lot more than all-man staffs, and it is for this reason that i must commend the starbucks corporation for not always contributing to the attitudes of female chauvinism which are omnipresent in today’s society. we are a society of chauvinists wanting to placate the lesser gender with over-representations in the workforce and even in the military (which actually compromises our national security like competitors in the “special olympics” would compromise the u..s. olympic team if a quota existed for “equal representation” of the lesser olympians). i remember as a little boy, hearing dolly parton or jane fonda or lily tomlin call dabney coleman a “male chauvinist pig,” and though the words “female chauvinist pig” may be unheard of…this is what members of society have become as a result of the placation given to the lesser gender (ie, gender-based quotas in everything from college admissions to a town’s police force).

    i must commend starbucks for not contributing to the over-representation of the lesser gender, which seems to exist as a means to further the politically-correct notion of gender-equality…even as competitions are gender-based and therefore prevent the little gender from competing against the strong gender. from military requirements to college sports teams to poker nights at casinos…heck, even to the olympics…it’s an accepted fact that one gender would serve as a “handicap” while competing alongside of another gender, and yet society is buying into the “anything a man can do” propaganda of feminism.

    completely unrelated to my experience at starbucks today, i must mention the fact that i just want to crash into any car in front of me if there doesn’t appear to be anyone sitting in the driver’s seat (while there is someone clearly visible in the passenger’s seat because the passenger is big enough to tower over the top of the seat). i don’t want to know the kind of values which are going to be instilled in a child who has grown up regarding a member of the milk-spouting, egg-bleeding, shorter, weaker, insufficient, lesser gender as “leader” or “head of the family”. this propaganda of “female superiority” is a placebo given to members of the lesser gender as a means to provide them with some unwarranted sense of esteem as a method of psychologically overcoming their inferior states of physical being though means of mental delusion. this propaganda, however, will not provide an adequate level of defense against a slanty-eyed nation which harbors aspirations of world-domination and (therefore) practices infanticide of the gender which can do nothing more than fight like a girl.

    i feel that if more stores (and coffee-shops) would take a cue from starbucks and quit having their professional identities represented by a bunch of milk-spouters and egg-bleeders, then the u.s.a would be properly equipped to regain their #1 status. i say this because society would not be exposed to politically-correct preservations of weakness-masking “pride,” as they’d be exposed to reality and truths suggesting that 1) a woman simply cannot do anything a man can do (and has no business thinking that she can) – and 2) any male who is dumbfoundedly curious of masculinity has no sense of masculine gender-identity and therefore cannot be considered a man. the problem with america is compassion. there are too many people who feel it is noble to overlook someone’s dysfunctional state of mind through praise and encouragement of it. this is wrong and this is why the u.s.a. is going downhill. everyone is too afraid of being labeled a bigot, so nobody dares to say that gender-changing surgeons should be replaced by mind-changing psychologists. nobody dares to take issue with mexicans in america, nobody dares to take issue with labeling as “strong” anyone who can’t budge a 100-pound barbell. nobody dares to take issue with “men” who stare open-mouthed and wide-eyed at naked members of their own gender (and who therefore deny a realization of masculine esteem).

    wrapping up, i will compliment starbucks for being the corporation responsible for the first all-man staff i have seen in a society filled with all-female staffs. there is nothing “greater” about a gender that’s largely responsible for shorter people, lighter people, weaker people, and defenseless people who have been given a “violence against us” act as a means of protection. there should be nothing and nobody trying to justify the lesser gender as “greater,” either through over-representation in the workplace or in the military or in positions of authority. sometimes even gay “men” want to start to Risk Affirming Patriarchal Endeavors, just to teach these wannabees a lesson.

    A WOMENS’ MOVEMENT IS LONG OVERDUE
    —————————————————-
    dear sir or vagina:

    please join the movement at http://www.thelessergender.com and support the ladies who take pride in NOT being manlike.

    do any other females think that there is something not right about a female who can’t get a sense of esteem without being regarded as “manlike”.

    i am starting a movement for females who love and respect femininity as the absence of masculinity that it IS, rather than as the “a woman can do anything a man can do” propaganda-line that feminists love to recite but cannot justify. feminists have no respect for the feminine gender, they have no respect for their gender being the shorter/smaller/weaker gender, they have no respect for reality or for they way things ARE. they’re trying to put some kind of a spin on gender so that society regards a woman as man-like with a womb (wombman). now, i realize how the word “woman” stems from “wombman,” much like “ape-” and “spider-” are both prefixes to the word “man” which differentiate the prefixed man from the actual man, but the population of vaginas all seem to want to be man’s equal (even though both the bigger anatomy and the superior ability of one gender has slapped that notion of gender-equality right in the face ever since the coney island hot dog eating competition had to placate the lesser gender by adding a woman’s division in order for the little gender to triumph).

    i am starting a movement for females who take pride in being female. furthermore, vaginas everywhere should be OFFENDED at other vaginas who are trying to measure-up to men, but instead they take pride in it. it is disrespect towards femininity for a vagina to think that she’s nothing unless she’s as strong as a man. it is disrespect towards femininity for a vagina to use the “a woman can do anything a man can do” line as a pride-preserver – first because it’s a lie propagated by self-discontent feminists who won’t be happy until the jagged little lie of gender-equality is as accepted as alanis morissette’s “jagged little pill” was in the 1990s, and second because anyone who utters that line is belittling femininity by trying to morph a masculine identity onto it.

    there is something not right about a vagina who can’t get a sense of esteem without being regarded as “manlike”.

    i am wholeheartedly OFFENDED by the excess of vaginas featured on “104.7 fm” internet talk-radio advertisements, i am offended by there being a blatant ignorance of men on television news-shows as if to suggest that the shorter/smaller/weaker gender of masculine wannabees has some kind of superiority over men. i don’t want to hear a bunch of egg-bleeding vaginas sitting in a coffee-klatch and speaking their opinions on important things – they are bimbos, from whoopi goldberg to barbara walters to andrea tantaros to kimberly guilfoyle. people who were designed to bleed eggs and to spout milk should NOT be looked up to – this is because they are merely tools to be used by men for procreation, they are tools to be used by babies for nourishment. that’s all they are, they should NOT be regarded as an authority on ANYTHING, they should NOT be looked up to by little boys who will eventually have no choice but to look down upon all women who don’t wear high-heeled shoes.

    men are taller, men are broader, men are stronger, men are hungrier, men are hornier. regarding vagina-people: whether or not 1) the wannabees wear high-heeled shoes to be as tall as men, 2) the wannabees wear shoulder-pads to make their shoulders as broad as mens’, or c) the wannabees go to a vaginas-only exercise facility which lacks man-sized barbells and any other inkling of masculine superiority, the fact remains that masculinity is the physically-superior gender. people who cannot accept this, namely feminists, are lying to themselves. women should not be seen as heros, they should not be seen as father-figures, single-parent households are as wrong as the notion of gender-equality. women should not be seen as heros because (aside from laying an egg every month and spurting milk from their MOMmary glands) they are not men and they cannot achieve like men (refer to your GENDER-BASED physical competitions which actually suggest that having a vagina on a team full of men would be regarded as a “handicap”).

    bottom line: vaginas NEED physical competitions to be gender-based in order to excel. that is, in order to excel ALONGSIDE of men and never OVER men. from military requirements to the olympics – even to the “coney island hot dog eating competition,” vaginas NEED separate (gender-based) divisions in order to win in any competition. if you build it, they will come – if you either keep ’em separated or give them LOTS and LOTS of mens’ hormones, they will finish in first place. any vagina who takes man-hormones is the personification of “wannabee”.

    i refer to members of the little vagina-gender as “masculine wannabees,” i call them “vaginas,” i have no problem with pointing out their defects with as much offensive language as N-1-6-6-3-R-S use in their rap songs . how many female bodybuilders would be lackluster without hormone-injections? all of them? it’s like the only thing that makes Strongwoman strong is a man’s hormones. testosterone is the mark of a man, and with little vaginas relying on testosterone-injections to excel…well, that is why they are masculine wannabees. like “strong enough for a man but made for a woman” and earlier buzzphrases which tried to subjugate the superiority that masculinity has over femininity, the omnipresent-yet-unjustified buzzphrase of “a woman can do anything a man can do” is the latest fashion, the latest placebo meant to provide vaginas with a sense of worthiness and esteem. society just accepts it, but “a woman can do anything a man can do” is a lie and it’s a placebo because there is nothing to justify it. it has no backbone and nothing to support it. also, there is something not right about a vagina who can’t get a sense of esteem without being regarded as “manlike”. identity-crisis, anyone? speaking of an identity-crisis,i will continue:

    at least chastity bono’s fabricated, “pin the tail on the donkey” gender now conforms to the crisis of her mind’s gender-identity not conforming to her actual gender…though she should have changed her mind rather than changing her gender’s appearance. she could have changed her mind instead of her gender. it took time for her MIND to discover that she felt that she was in the wrong body, it took time for her MIND to refuse any sort of gender-acceptance and self-acceptance, it took time for the outside world and the genders around her to make her MIND feel that she was un-ladylike. one must LEARN that there are two genders, one must LEARN one’s own place in the world regarding those genders. any gender-dysfunction that chastity bono felt had to be learned through living. chastity bono is not a mentally-sound person, she is weak because she abandoned self-love and self-esteem to mask her own misery by dwelling in 24/7 circus-sideshow.

    let me get back to the masculine wannabees who DON’T play “pin the tail on the donkey”.

    it is my opinion that vaginas everywhere should be OFFENDED at other vaginas who are trying to measure-up to men, but instead they take pride in it. it is disrespect towards femininity for a vagina to think that she’s nothing unless she’s as strong as a man. from rose tennant on wpgb to fran drescher on reruns of “the nanny,” i can’t count how many times they’ve implied that either they’re just as capable as men or that all vaginas “can do anything a man can do”. quoth nanny fine, “i’m an independent, self-sufficient woman,” as she figuratively pats herself on the head and tries to sell the viewing audience on seeing the disabled gender as capable. “anything a man can do,” says rosie the riveter. if that’s true, tell me why the difficulty of getting into the armed forces depends on gender…no man is going to become a soldier just by satisfying what is required of the little gender.

    there is something not right about a vagina who can’t get a sense of esteem without being regarded as “manlike,” but there is something very wrong regarding a man who could not become a soldier because his stronger and more-capable presence existed on the stronger and more-capable gender. if we’re going to compromise our national security out of pity for feelings of the lackluster/wannabee gender, why even bother going to war? we’ve already surrendered.

    vaginas are not members of the superior gender, they are lesser – men have greater heights, broader shoulders, greater weights and greater appetites either for sex or for food. there is a reason that physical competitions are based on gender, it’s because vaginas would serve as a handicap on a team of men. america’s strongest womb (wombman, wombn, woman – are you getting the wombn and her baby-making namesake?) is either on hormones or testosterone and should not be accepted into any physical competition on account of these gender-bending hormones.

    dr. frank-n-furter is the only person who can make a man out of nothing (femininity = nothing). chastity bono may have the appearance of being manlike, but she should’ve changed her mind instead of conforming her body to the “help, i’m a man in a female’s body” state of mind that she had allowed to develop throughout her life. again, nobody is born into a “wrong” body – nobody is born with any opinions or feelings or knowledge of anything. it’s just as easy for a skinny boy to grow up into the man of his dreams as it is for a skinny boy to regard himself as “not man enough” and to turn to homosexuality to find that big and strong man of his dreams that he’s always wanted to be. wannabee. gay “men” lust for a masculine identity just as much as feminists do. they’re all a bunch of masculine wannabees, this is why i refer to gay males as gay “men” with quotation marks. it’s time that at least feminists would embrace their femininity rather than mock it with the words “a woman can do anything a man can do”.

    this has been an introduction to my Womens’ Movement. please join the movement at http://www.thelessergender.com and join the ladies who take pride in NOT being manlike.

    sincerely,
    mr. dylan terreri, i
