    It is quite clear you think anyone who doesn't share your progressive views is some sort of misogynistic psychopath...

    Yeah, there's nothing warlike about a NA warrior logo nor a NA warrior mascot carrying a weapon and said to be on the warpath.

    And calling everyone of a race a "fierce warrior" does not in any way imply that the race is warlike or the culture warmongering. No, no... all of them being warriors really has nothing to do with war at all.

    Well, I'm not the person referring to political opposition as sexist pejoratives.

    Then I guess it's a good thing the Redskins do none of that. I'll grant you "Braves on the warpath" in the fight song but that is, after all, a fight song.

    Brave is a job not a race.

    As I said in the other thread we wouldn't keep the "Washington Niggers".
    You wouldn't be allowed to keep them. There was a rather significant dust up over just that 'round about 150 years ago.

    If you could grasp the difference between stereotyping a job and a race, perhaps you can understand why people do not object the same to stereotyping jobs as race.

    But you can't can you? You'll just claim "But Raiders is portraying violent white people!" as if that's somehow ****ing relevant.

    Legislating according to offense is nonsense! We don't pass laws, or rules, according to people being offended. It's beyond stupid to think we should pass laws and rules according to people being offended. We take such actions to protect society. It doesn't matter who objects (hell, most people probably CAN'T understand what I'm saying), what matters is that racial stereotyping is bad for society because it marginalizes those left out.

    I'm still waiting to learn what is the warmongering part of the logo.
