    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I had a very strong knee jerk reaction to your post but I read it a few more times and I think I KIND OF get what you're saying and I don't disagree as strongly as I first did. However, I would say as a counterargument that his Bill Simmons bias leads to his racial and gender biases.

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    I don't even know where to start, but at the very least; I'm capable of being engaged in dismantling our country's oppression of people of color AND being annoyed at Bill Simmons. It's not an either-or proposition for me. In fact, I think that these issues are basically the same- and what you...

    Bill Simmons: Valuing Trades More Than Friendships

    Instead of simply stating that there are more fanatical sports fans who are men than who are women, how about starting with why that might be, and what kind of gender bias might create that situation? As to the rest of your point, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you do seem...

    Kobe Killed in Helicopter Crash

    The problem with saying stuff like this, and the whole "Girldad" thing, is the subtext that before you had daughters you didn't really see women as people. I realize that's almost certainly not what you're trying to say here- but what does "improve your perspective" actually mean? And the idea...

    Caleb Hannan and the question of ethical journalism

      I'm pretty sure no one is saying that we can't or shouldn't report on misdeeds or crimes done by transgendered people.  The point is that all too often these cases are reported on as though the individual's status as a trans person is a MAJOR element of the story, instead of something that is...

    Caleb Hannan and the question of ethical journalism

      Hannan even uses the word "snipped" at one point in regards to the "fraud."     He was probably pretty pleased with himself for that line.    It's just a cold, cold article.  I don't think that Hannan is responsible for killing Dr. V, but his inability to empathize with her within his article...

    Report: A-Rod banned through 2014?

       Sorry Joe, I have to disagree too.  I think that ARod may be legitimately angry, but everything about that whole situation, including the outburst, was staged.  The guy just does not react like normal people do.  He's got good PR and they came up with a good scheme.

    Rookie hazing & bullying: Miami guard Incognito indefinitely suspended

      Disagreeing with someone on an internet message board isn't bullying.  Even if every poster on SOSH commented in this thread telling sodenj5 that they think he's wrong, and even if some of them insulted him, it's still not bullying.    Social media can be used as a tool to bully someone, but...
