In response to slasher9's comment:
Misogyny /mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/ is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including sexual discrimination, denigration of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification of women.

Luckily, we will be the only team whose bats heat up with the weather, right?
nope. some teams bats are already as hot as they will ever get. it's nice knowing we still have much upside to our offense. many W's to come.....
You're not wrong on this issue, IMO. 67....but it's a fvcking cheek for a homophobe like you to lecture another on misogyny.
I was talking to a couple of friends tonight about a cabinet minister here, Michael Gove, the Secretary of State for Education. He's widely despised across all parties...his views on education are generally considered to be ignorant, dogmatic and classist....but he's also hated by many for his outspoken views against gay marriage.
He's been verbally abused in the streets due to that view...I think that's wrong. I think he's wrong, but he's not a Klansman or a Nazi so doesn't deserve that.
It was recently reported that his 2 children (tweens/early teens?) are also being bullied at school. That's REALLY wrong! Even if their dad was evil (and he's not, IMO) it's not their fault he's a jerk. And bullying is always wrong, and I wish it didn't happen.
But the nature of the bullying is heartwarming and inspirational to me: "Naahhh, your dad's a homophobe!"
You dig, Eva? The world is changing for the better....most children...most people under 30/40/50...repudiate and/or can't understand your homophobia.
There will, sadly, always be racists, misogynists, homophobes, anti-semites, anti-Mexicans, etc.....but to a large extent they are 60+ and will be dead and unlamented in 30-ish years...
...replaced by decent people that ignore race, height, weight, religion, sexual preference etc. and only judge others on their behaviour.
"Your dad's a homophobe!" The decent people are winning, Eva, and there is nothing you and your ilk can do about it.
