I don’t know if hazing is one of those things that’s always served as some absurd, sadistic faux rite of masculinity or if it’s become more prevalent in recent years. It’s not something I heard a lot about as a kid; I went to a tiny high-school that couldn’t field an eleven-man football team, though.
I kind of figured, though, that much of the right-wing believes hazing is an important part of being a man and that it’s a shame the communist lesbian feminazis want to take it all away. Sure enough, Rush Limbaugh:
Everything we do is geared for the female vote, the female fan, or the female customer, the female this. And something has to give in that circumstance. And you look at news, divisions of networks and newspapers. You look at college enrollment and graduation, all of these things dominated by women now, and women have their own culture.
[T]here’s something — you know, masculinity ain’t hip. Masculinity isn’t cool. Metrosexual and that stuff is. Masculinity is brutish, it’s predatory, it’s all kinds of rotten, bad stuff, mean. The other kind of men aren’t. But in this story, I have never, ever in my life heard of players in a locker room being bullied.
This is unbelievable. Just now on CNN they had some typical left-wing sportswriter talking, “Oh, yeah, bullying in the NFL takes the form of a rookie tax.” And that’s a player being forced to spend 15 grand for the offensive linemen to go to Vegas, a rookie tax. So they’re politicizing this in a sense, at least in the way that they’re trying to convey what this is. But I’m telling you, folks, there’s still way too much that we don’t know about this to be able to arrive at an informed opinion on this. There’s still too much that we don’t know on this Dolphins thing. ‘Cause I don’t know how you bully a 320-pound, six five offensive tackle.
And this is shameless nutpicking, I know, but so good:
I’m so old that I remember a time when NFL players could actually hit/tackle without penalty or fine and when “bullying” was something encouraged in linemen.
This new feminized NFL should wear the pink “awareness” gloves and shoes all season. Why limit the girliness to just October?
You know who isn’t a feminized, self hating, quivering vajayjay mess of a culture? The Muslim world…and I’m concerned that they’ll be our rulers within two generations.
