I stand corrected I don't follow soccer either.
Quote:
Mary Pilon asserts in a Politico piece that the National Women's Soccer League salaries range from $6,000 to $30,000 with a $200,000 cap. The U.S. Men's National Team, in comparison, had a salary cap of $3.1 million last year. The total payout for the (winning!) Women's World Cup will be $15 million compared to the (losing!) men's $576 million.
OK, $6 to 30 grand means semi-pro to me. They can't support themselves on that.

Bruce covered most of my response. No, technically they are not pros although there is a purse that is paid out to the winner.
Yes, men have been referred to in a similar manner - no not professional athletes though.

Still not offended either way, but apparently that's because of my gender. Whatever.

Offended is too strong a word, for me. More like just eyeroll-inducing. I honestly think the solution is to talk about men's personal lives more, not women's less.

That's been happening more with pro athletes lately... in courtrooms.

Agreed, with amendment (although I know that's a whole 'nother can of worms).

Plz to send that to me as a HUGE canvas.
Love it.
'cept WW would need some of the anti-monkey-butt powder you sent me (and I STILL use when it's hot) to prevent chafing in that costume

Like it or not if women want to achieve equality they will have to win the support of a lot of the men. This stuff doesn't help.

Here we have probably the original, Tits or GTFO, from 1904.


What a sick(and probably greedy) mind, to dump this bullshit on women at the end of the Victorian era.

The shoe on ther other foot.
Quote:
Bar staff at a pub in Inverness have stopped wearing their kilts after complaining of constant harassment by women attempting to check whether they are "true Scotsmen". Until now, the men at Hootananny have donned their tartan in keeping with the pubís traditional atmosphere. But they are swapping to trousers, claiming sexual harassment mainly from groups of women revellers who lift up their kilts to check if they are wearing anything underneath.

He said: "It may seem funny but it is serious, too Ė the women are sticking their hands up their kilts. Can you imagine if I went into a restaurant and stuck my hand up a girlís skirt? I would be taken to the police station and rightly so." He added: "I look after my customers but equally important are my staff. I am not forcing them to do something they donít want to do. We fellows are very, very aware of sexism. I think the women need to catch up."

Say what you will, you know that at least one of them has occasionally gone "true scotman" (And I am betting it's the one in the middle)

Jackie Fox of The Runaways tells how she was raped in front of the band and crew. It's a sad read but goes into how it haunted her for the rest of her life, even though she went back to school, became a very successful lawyer. Scroll down at the link.
