98. Well, aren't they the lucky ducks! No problem, then! Silly things!



If that boss inviting you for the foursome is a woman, it's off to the shitty course, then. And if the boss does have a pair, well gee--that woman visiting the course can't EVER expect her application for membership to be favorably reviewed, now, can she?

I think that any THINKING American, in the 21st Century, can see what is wrong here. Augusta is free to discriminate all they want, but I don't want or need to see the fruits of that discrimination on my television on the public airwaves for all my female relatives to behold, and believe, for even a second, that this is "OK." The FCC--my government, of by and for all the people, not just the men--issues that broadcast license. Further, those corporations that sponsor that event earn profits from both men and women, and they need to understand very clearly what is wrong with perpetuating the idea that discrimination is "OK" solely because they have been doing it since 1934.

The only reason the golfers are no longer all white, and the caddies all black (as the owner of that well-groomed cesspool once boasted) is because THINKING Americans said "Uh uh--that shit is just WRONG." Well, this shit is just WRONG, too.

They can do what they want--I just don't think they should either profit or be glorified via network television for it and I think Americans with brains are well within their rights to stand up and say "Cut that out." Decisions have consequences. One of the consequences should be that they need to forego the barrels of cash they get from perpetuating discrimination over FCC licensed airwaves and being proud of it. When one tries to pass off 'exclusion' as 'tradition' one is on a moron's path. That kind of attitude is dumb, noxious, and wrong.

This isn't a "b" or "c" word discussion--we're not talking about "names can never hurt one." Everyone has a differing level of tolerance for words, and words don't keep a person out of the member's bar or off the course. This kind of conduct, this cheery "You Don't Belong" attitude, is a direct affront to every female person on the globe, particularly when these bozos are taking money, hand over fist, from men as well as women.
