Feminists are getting all PMSie about ESPN having a complaint section for disliking female commentators
(Jezebel)–Liberal airing of stupid grievances is a practice that’s been perfected on the internet, and nothing gives people stupid crap to be mad about like sports broadcasts. Thankfully, ESPN has streamlined the complaining process, giving users the opportunity to sort their kvetching into categories. Users can complain about “Bands/Halftime performance,” “Schedule,” “Technical/Audio/Video,” or “Commentators- dislike female commentators.” Wait, what? An alert Twitter user noticed this odd “why the ladies be talking?” category for ESPN complaints. Apparently sports fans really hate it when women stand around with their boobs and jewelry acting all fucking smart and shit when it should be a man on the field, a man, I tell you. ESPN didn’t respond to the fan’s confused Tweet, but in the meantime, here’s hoping that the “Commentators: dislike female commentators” complaints category was designed to filter out the really awful stuff and just send it to an abandoned corner of the internet, where it rots unread for all eternity.
I just do NOT understand feminists at all. How can they possibly be pissed at ESPN for this? They are trying to compartmentalize people’s complaints and inflammatory comments about chicks calling sports. Let’s call a spade a spade…girls suck at play-by-play. And for some reason ESPN insists on having girls call Big Ten football games every week so I have to suffer through it. I am not even trying to be sexist here. These are the facts and they are indisputable. The fact that ESPN has allowed this to go on for years proves that they are a beacon for the women’s movement. I really don’t understand what else feminists want from ESPN. And this Jezebel article just proves that they don’t understand men or sports at all. ” Apparently sports fans really hate it when women stand around with their boobs and jewelry acting all fucking smart and shit when it should be a man on the field, a man, I tell you”. Umm, FYI Jezebel…nobody has a problem with Erin Andrews’ boobs. NOBODY. She can be on the field all day everyday. We have a problem with Doris Burke behind the mic. Big difference. Ugh, you just can’t win with chicks.
