Oh snap, that's funny. George Will is very knowledgeable about baseball. On all other topics he's a puffed up blowhard. He's an articulate blowhard, but a blowhard none the less.

I suddenly got very light-headed, does anybody know who the real Queen of women is? It's going to be practically impossible to form a thought without a supreme leader telling the gals what to be angry about! Oh crap, who is going be signing the woman union cards?

I think we do need a little levity in here now.

Just to drive nononono and Hawkeye and BillRM nuts, I'm posting this article from today's news. Since none of them has any sense of humor, they will take it as serious evidence of man-bashing. Laughing I hope it gives everyone else a laugh.

Proved at last: Men really are idiots
By Melissa Healy
December 12, 2014, 2:10 PM

Finally! A scientific explanation for Johnny Knoxville — he of “Jackass” fame — and the fans who keep him at his dangerous and moronic antics: Male Idiot Theory.

New research has rigorously tested Male Idiot Theory, which posits that, well, men are idiots and are driven to take ridiculous risks despite the clear prospects for self-harm, and for no defensible reason. Newly published by the venerable British Medical Journal (in its annual BMJ Christmas issue), the landmark study has shown that Male Idiot Theory holds up under strictly scientific scrutiny.

While the latest research does confirm that males can be idiots, it fails to shed light on a larger mystery that has preoccupied this correspondent since girlhood, growing up in a household with six brothers: How did these idiots ever convince the non-idiot gender that they were somehow superior (and worthy of earning close to 30% more, on average, in the United States)?

But I digress. The latest BMJ inquiry plumbs an important but little-known database to assess gender differences in an individual’s likelihood to engage in profoundly idiotic behavior: the Darwin Awards. Winners of the Darwin Awards, which are handed out at random times and almost always posthumously, must be found to have died (or to have sterilized themselves) in the conduct of activity that is so stupid, pointless and predictably self-destructive that they can truly be said to have done humanity a great service. By removing themselves from the human gene pool, the awards note, these honorees have done their part to eliminate impediments to the sustained survival of humankind (note that I do not write mankind).

Since 1995, 413 nominations have been forwarded to the Darwin Award committee, and 332 have been independently verified and confirmed by the awards panel.

Recipients of this award include the terrorist who posted a letter bomb with insufficient postage, and who unthinkingly opened his own letter when it was returned (apparently, because he was conscientious enough to include a return address). The award was bestowed on a thief who died after unbolting the steel clamp from an elevator while standing inside, causing him to plummet to his death. But the rules did not allow the award to go to a man who, in the course of using a belt sander as an auto-erotic device, merely lost a testicle. (The latter’s case for award eligibility was done further damage after he salvaged his remaining testicle with a staple gun, though he did merit an honorable mention.)

After excluding urban legends, unverified accounts and honorable mentions, the study's four authors, all male, found that 318 awardees met their study’s eligibility requirements. A lopsided 282 of those awardees — 88.7% — were male.
If men and women were equally prone to idiocy, that would be a statistical improbability, the authors concluded. Null hypothesis discredited, QED: Men are idiots.

Embracing a broad view of evolution, Wendy Northcutt, the UC Berkeley graduate who founded the Darwin Awards, has suggested that awardees may, perhaps unwittingly, be engaged in some form of altruistic behavior. By sacrificing themselves — or their ability to reproduce — they have contributed the survival of the species.

“We believe this view to be flawed,” write the authors, who were led in their analysis by Ben Alexander Daniel Lendrem, a student at the King Edward IV School in northeast England. Nevertheless, the authors wrote, the now-demonstrated phenomenon of Male Idiocy should be seen in evolutionary terms.

“Presumably, idiotic behavior confers some, as yet unidentified selective advantage on those who do not become its casualties,” wrote the authors. “Until MIT gives us a full and satisfactory explanation of idiotic male behavior, hospital emergency departments will continue to pick up the pieces, often literally.”

Misandry disguised as humor is nothing new. But we all know how you feel about misandry.

Nope firefly, you're not getting away with denying your bigotry this time.

Personally, I don't care about the slogans these women want to wear. I can see the ironic humor

I don't think they are harming anyone with a T-shirt that says, "I bathe in men's tears". If you're really such a believer in free speech, and freedom of expression, you should accept their right to do that.


Whenever someone makes light of the suffering of an entire group of people, that is bigotry. Period. You can't backpedal from this firefly; you are a bigot. Your bigotry is out in the open in the form of these quotes for everyone to see. You can't hide from it. I've bookmarked it, and I'll re-quote it everytime I catch you up on your high horse in the future.

I do believe in freedom of speech. I'm not trying to suppress theirs. I'm simply using my freedom of speech to point out obvious bigotry.

But let's play devil's advocate for a moment. If you see nothing wrong with making light of an entire group's suffering, and you believe that others shouldn't be allowed to use their freedom of speech to criticise that bigotry, then you are by default saying that's Ok for people to walk around wearing t-shirts that say:

~I bathe in Muslim tears
~I bathe in faggot tears
~I bathe spic tears
~I bathe in Jew tears
~I bathe in nigger tears
~I bathe in rape victim tears

By default through your justifications, you are condoning that^

What you're also doing is removing your own right to criticise people like hawkeye and Bill when they disagree with you in regards to rape issues. Because remember, the person who says something that others disagree with (according to you) is merely expressing their freedom of speech and should not be criticised back (according to you), because they could just be being "ironic".

ANYONE who claims that they are an "Ironic Misandrist" is no different than someone who claims that they're an "Ironic Racist". It's a copout designed to allow that person the say and do horrible things, and if anyone calls them out on it they can shrug their shoulders and claim that it's all in good fun.

These kinds of people are sociopaths, and that's what you are firefly.

There is NO such thing as "Ironic hatred". But since you think so, then you shouldn't have ANY qualms with for instance people making fun of female rape victims. Because that is freedom of speech too!

FDNY drops physical test requirement amid low female hiring rate

The Fire Department has stopped requiring probationary firefighters to pass a job-related physical-skills test before getting hired — a move that critics derided as a lowering of standards.

The move by first-year Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro, which allows probies to fail components of the Functional Skills Training test but still graduate from the Fire Academy, comes amid criticism of the department’s low hiring rate of women.

“It’s a lowering of the standards across the board,” said one former FDNY official familiar with training protocol.

“What needs to matter is how well you perform the tasks of firefighting,” he added. “The question is when you’re 270 pounds and you’re on the fourth floor and someone comes through that window — can they pick you up and drag you out or not?”

The FST drills include advancing a heavy tire 6 to 8 feet, raising a ladder up a wall and breaching holes in a ceiling — while wearing an oxygen tank with a limited amount of air.

Nigro revealed the adjustments to the exam at a City Council hearing Wednesday where members questioned whether the skills test was responsible for the 10,500-member force including just 44 women.

Department officials insisted the two issues were unrelated and that the changes hadn’t impacted anyone in the academy class that graduated last month. While 95 percent of men pass the FDNY’s demanding physical test, only 57 percent of women manage to get through.

After the hearing, Nigro said passing the skills tests had only been required of the two most recent classes — and not for any of the 15 years before.

“We still grade the people. You can still fail it if you go beyond the time, but you’re not automatically failed from the program,” he said.

Despite Nigro’s assurances, Fire and Criminal Justice Services Committee Chair Elizabeth Crowley (D-Queens) questioned the impact of inconsistencies in training in recent years.

“There are still concerns that excessive testing methods within the Fire Academy are being used to keep women probationary firefighters from graduating,” she said.

There's nothing funny about bigotry. And there's also nothing funny about lowering safety standards to appease women's whining (while putting people's lives at risk.)

Ex-NFL star Darren Sharper indicted on rape charges following grand jury investigation in Louisianaan
December 12, 2014

Sharper, 39, who played for the Packers, Vikings and Saints during his 14-year NFL career, could face a life sentence if convicted on the charges.

Almost 10 months after the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office charged former NFL safety Darren Sharper with seven felony counts, including two counts of rape by use of drugs, a Louisiana grand jury returned an indictment Friday charging the 39-year-old Sharper with aggravated rape and simple rape.

Sharper also faces federal charges in a separate indictment, after the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana charged Sharper and associate with conspiracy to distribute Schedule IV controlled substances — Alprazolam, Diazepam and Zolpidem, drugs the men are alleged to have used on women — "with intent to commit rape and two counts of distributing these substances with intent to commit rape," according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite Jr.'s office.

If convicted of the aggravated rape charge in Louisiana, Sharper would face "life imprisonment at hard labor without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence," according to a press release issued by the Orleans Parish District Attorney's office earlier this year, citing Louisiana state law. The Orleans Parish DA obtained arrest warrants for Sharper and his acquaintance, Erik Nunez, on Feb. 27.

Sharper was indicted on two counts of aggravated rape and one count of simple rape, Nunez was indicted on two counts of aggravated rape and one count of obstruction of justice, and another Sharper acquaintance, Brandon Licciardi, was indicted on three counts of human trafficking, one count of aggravated rape and one count of aggravated battery. Licciardi, the other man charged in the federal indictment along with Sharper, was a sergeant who worked in the traffic division of the St. Bernard (La.) Sheriff's Office until being reassigned in June after he was under investigation. He resigned Friday, according to a statement from the St. Bernard Sheriff’s office.

Sharper has already pleaded not guilty to charges in the L.A. County case. He remains jailed in Los Angeles. His lead attorney, Blair Berk, did not return a call and email from the Daily News for comment.

Sharper was served an indictment by Tempe, Ariz. detectives March 12, and he was charged with two counts of sexual assault and three counts of administering dangerous drugs in that case.

A Las Vegas investigation into similar alleged criminal behavior by Sharper — drugging women and sexually assaulting them — is still open, according to a Las Vegas Metro Police spokesman. A Miami Beach investigation of Sharper for alleged sexual assault was closed in May and no charges were filed.

“Today's indictment reflects our office priorities of fighting violence and public corruption,” U.S. Attorney Polite said in a statement. “As alleged, Sharper and Licciardi conspired to distributed narcotics to several women with the intent to commit rape. Licciardi further compromised his position as a law enforcement officer by encouraging a witness to lie about Licciardi's involvement in this conspiracy. As a result of today’s federal and state charges, both Licciardi and Sharper will now be brought to justice in this district.”

Arizona authorities announced in March that they would not seek to extradite Sharper to face charges there until the Los Angeles rape case was completed. The Orleans Parish DA spokesman and assistant DA, Christopher Bowman, told the Daily News that while it is his office's policy not to "comment on open cases, which this is now, all I will say is we are confident that we will be able to try Mr. Sharper within the time limits allowed under the law."

Sharper played for the Packers, Vikings and Saints, and won a Super Bowl ring with New Orleans. He was an analyst with the NFL Network after his playing days but was fired in late February.

@nononono,
Wow, I think I've been turned. From here on nononono is the new spiritual leader of women. He will purge us of independent thought, because we get into trouble when we get all uppity and ****. We (I mean us grown gals) will begin preaching to the little girls in kindergarten that little boys are superior to little girls, and if the little girls defy the male leadership, they might be punished until they see the error of their ways.

After all China, India and Pakistan are far ahead of us in the elimination of new born girls, and way ahead of us in the production of males. The only kink in this system, is there are not enough women to mate with males who expect to have children in their lifetime. But the architects of gender based genocide have had to regroup and woo eligible women to come to their country and provide children to the excessive amount of males. This might be a good place for nono, his advanced intellect and overarching lack of respect for women could make him a king. India and Pakistan still have honor killings.

Damn, why didn't the Queen of women think about this, she could have limited access to fertile females to one man per vessel. We really need to get nononono to speak at our secret gatherings, so he can direct us on ways to worship him, and live a more dutiful life.

Now I need a scotch, neat.

Good lord! You don't say!

Well that's a pattern then. All men must be rapists; there's no other conclusion to be drawn. Hopefully you can exercise some self control, spend some time away from posting on rape related threads on A2K, and successfully lobby to make it mandatory that all men have their penises cut full off at birth. That'll stop those rapist men from raping. It's the only for sure way to protect those poor victim, saintly, infantilized women folk.

Men bad, baaaaaaaaaaad.

Yes they did, they developed the most uncomfortable tampon that could ever be used, and they sadly were lacking. But apparently, after a while, women with MD's and with women's lady parts, developed a much more comfortable device. But since you have no need for such items, how would you know if it was a good thing for women. And I guess you weren't alive when some tampons caused toxic shock Syndrome. That genius little device managed to sicken and kill women. But again, tell your ancestors thanks for the toilets, women were getting irritated when hubby ran out to the cabbage patch to relieve himself.

The inventors had enormous problems getting information when a lot of the women who might give them information about comfort and fit were seriously concerned that they might go to Hell for saying these words. How about we make an effort to be both factual and fair, MKay?

EDIT: did you see the scene in madmen from about 1963 where the men need to sell a product that has as its primary benefit that it gives women orgasims, and peggy is told to go find out what it does because the company has been vague about what this product does? Did you notice how much trouble she has saying to her bosses, in her report, what this thing does. To men she knows well and trusts and it is her job to tell them?

@hawkeye10,
That's one view, the other is that men who had not a clue about women's bodies assumed they could do a better job than female MD's. These guys liked to tell us monthly cramping was ALL IN OUR MINDS.

But, I tell you what, all you guys with prostate difficulties, frequent visits to the BR every night, send me a note and I'll do the same thing those medical tight asses did when they had dominance over women's health care.

One other thing to think of, those of you who have wives or close female companions can mostly depend on those women to call 911 if they think you are having a heart attract or a stroke. Sadly, when women are having heart attacks or strokes, chances are they will die at home since we present differently. Men, if you played sports, you cannot walk off a heart attack nor can you play hurt during a stroke.
