Cricket Australia is morally corrupt, by fining these blokes CA is taking 25% of Smith's money and Pattinson's money. This is cheap tactics by the authority. Also the term Pattinson used isn't offensive at all. We are men, should toughen up, the world nowadays is all rainbows and jelly beans, the end is near matesSaw it on foxsports news, selective editing i guess for the part i saw, so a 25% fine for being pissed off you got out, FMD. CA have seriously lost the plot with these over reactions just because they want to be seen as doing something.
Lab and Head are in the side. They are your second spinners so to speak.patto has almost missed the boat this summer - the big 4 cummo, josh, starcy and gaz will play all summer (fitness/injury permitting) - especially after winning the first test. maybe the back to back melb/syd one of the quicks may be rested, but again all the boys are from NSW. we dont really have an out and out 2nd ranked spinner either. so i'd rather play 3 quicks there as well.
Hmm big difference between calling somebody 'homosexual' and a 'pile of sticks', though.We have actually gone backwards, basically implying with everything that a straight white male will always be superior to you in every way because they are the only 3 words it is acceptable to label anyone with.
Funnily enough, I have a black t-shirt with Screaming Queen written in pink on the front of it. A friend of mine managed a record shop and apparently they were a local band and he thought it would make a good gag gift.I don't think minorities going around celebrating their derogatory names is the answer.
"I am a fa*got and proud of it" doesn't really work.
I actually think you are the one who is missing the point. It isn't gay men or racial minorities mindset that is the issue. It is the constant use of those characteristics as weapons against them to convey the speakers opinion that the target inferior and less worthy because of those characteristics.I don't think you get it, people react because it makes them feel inferior so switch the mindset.
Being labelled an N word shouldn't be insulting, you should be proud of who and what you are.
I hope that wasn't a Freudian slip and a reflection of how you really feel.Neither is creating a two tier system where you can call a straight white male anything you like but it's sexist racist,etc to say anything to anyone else.
All that does is reinforce the white man is superior.
