    I don't normally comment in the Journalism Thread as one of the non-journos here but this was interesting timing as I've spent the last little while noticing that one by one, the women who were active participants on SJ have drifted away.

    I don't know if most men are aware how misogynistic this site frequently is and this place is mild compared to most.

    featuring outtakes of Samantha Hoops.

    SJ was harassing an obviously weight challenged Chris L

    You're right. Because Sports Illustrated does something misogynistic, we all should follow suit. That logic always works.

    As does this new rhetoric of attacking "political correctness" every time one is asked to adopt basic human decency.

    The height of humor is wishing a person would perish in a blaze of fire.
