The only violence I want to see is towards the CBS and NFL people that shoehorn all the worthless extra stuff into the pregame. Just take 30 minutes, tell us what to look for in the game, AND THEN PLAY IT. I have less than zero need to hear celebrity interviews, talentless hacks playing God Bless America, a national anthem that takes more than two minutes because the producer and singer wouldn't recognize 3/4 time if their lives depended on it, hype over commercials that are completely lame because we've seen both way better and more shocking on Youtube, or the 6000th reference to the coaches being brothers. You have just about ruined the game for people in pursuit of the same mouth-breathers that dictate the shiatty Olympics coverage.

The conference championships are better football to watch at this point.

what_now: Marine1: Shiat like this is why feminism is a hard sell.

some little boy is sad that women get to work in the same job as him.

Charge of Hypersensitivity (the crybaby charge) or possibly Charge of Peurility (the Peter Pan charge).

Textbook feminist shaming tactic used instead of engaging in actual debate.

It's good to pretend that myths are true, because of the awareness it raises about other myths that also aren't true.

This urban myth is so pervasive that my roomate's professor in a domestic violence counseling class was saying it last year.  I gave my roomate the history of this myth, and she showed the information to the professor.  He backed down, but the rest of the class actually booed her.  However, it is a kind of hick school, so take it with a grain of salt.
