When you want to get their attention, it's "Hey, lady!".

Women is the female analog to Men (which is used exclusively in sport).  So women should be used exclusively in sports.

There...problem solved.  Can we work on cancer, world hunger and peace in the middle east now?

Yeah, I appreciate the summer olympics more, particularly the broad jump.

I just call them "athletes" because I'm an enlightened citizen of the 21st century who respects chicks when they're within earshot.

Well, obviously, that's why you wait until the skirts are too far away to hear you. That way they know you're classy as fark.

Who cares? NBC keeps calling them "girls," so it's not like they're giving it any thought.

Ambivalence: Women is the female analog to Men (which is used exclusively in sport).  So women should be used exclusively in sports.

No because someone, somewhere wants to be offended so they can score oppression points

Not exclusively.  That's the point.  Wimbledon uses "gentlemen", so they can use "ladies".  And in motorsport, it's "ladies and gentlemen, start your engines" and "boogity boogity boogity, let's go racing, boys and girls".

Is it hard for you to not act like entitled asshole all the time? Just because you don't see it as a problem, doesn't mean it isn't.

When they're in the place and you're callin' out to them, they're ladies. When you meet them on TV with the help of Chuck Woolery, they're women.
 
2018-02-21 10:07:23 AM  
Don't call them ladies unless they show they are, in fact, a lady.
 
2018-02-21 10:16:51 AM  
When isn't a woman a lady?
When she's abroad.

This whole thread has triggered me. Gender is social construct and we are implying these athletes self-identify as "female".  I always ask someone how they identify before assigning a gender label.  Pigs

You need to stop putting words in my mouth. I never said this.

I was not referring to this article but rather your privileged white brodude worldview in general, which you've showcased on this site multiple times.

No wonder "techbbro" is a thing  You live in your own bubbles, shiatting on everyone and everything and think that if something isn't a problem for you, a straight white western male, who will waltz through life with everyone kissing your feet, then no one should complain.

Again I ask, is it hard for you to not be an asshole all the time?

You don't know my background. You don't know how "privileged" I am. You don't know how hard I have worked to get where I am. Hell, you don't even know if I am white.

But yes, this site which has a mascot of a squirrel with big testicles is a very serious site and we must all be offended over everything here because otherwise we are just privileged white males.

So I guess that I didn't actually work full time during college to pay for it and studied my ass off to get my degree, then worked 12 hour days at my job after college? It was all handed to me because I might be a white male? 

I guess I dreamt all that because a white girl from Seattle said so.
