    Tell me, what tone do you see here? It's not a trick question either.
    Sarcasm. Which brings to mind an old 60s locker room joke. How do you separate the men from the boys? With a crowbar.

    No one is suggesting abuse or ****ty treatment - that's YOUR strawman built to suit your need to blast your political opponents. Not to mention hilarious considering you're heaping abuse on those you perceive are competing with you.
    Thank you. Let's not forget, my OP was not aimed at defending the coach, but about society being as soft as wet Charmin Ultra-Soft.

    Re: Wussification of America

    The defense of this man's actions are hilarious. The guy was a ****ty coach, did a ****ty job with the kids, was abusive and was fired for it. Coach K does nothing like that but he gets results. This has NOTHING to do with a wussification of America, but a political spin on an asshole coach that had every right to be fired based on his record alone.

Anyone who knows the basics of reverse-engineering can give the most likely reasons as to why men are physically stronger, women softer, men less emotional thinkers, etc. I credit a lot of my successful marriage to my wife and me being very traditional. From the day she moved in with me, we didn't even have to discuss responsibilities.
    Interesting, to use the word unique and then stereotype complete genders, got to love it!

    How about letting individuals decide rather then their 'junk'. I have met some pretty small guys who would do no better in the 'military front line' as any woman. Met some women who I'd gladly walk point with. How about we open doors for women who appreciate it and complement women who act like ladies. But let us not wolf whistle at the female cop or swat the waitress on her ass.

    SOME men are stronger, some women can't open a jar of pickles, but that is SOME.

    I don't think one couple's marital success can be distilled to a universal ointment. My marriage has had quite a few dis-CUSS-ions one who does what, and it isn't 'traditional' what ever the hell that is...

    26 years, not a done deal but a damn good start...

    Yes our young people are getting wussy. and political correctness is to blame. **** tolerance, peace and understanding. Beating up an unpopular minorities or weak kids is great anti-wuss training. Too bad we didn't elect Romney, a real man known to beat up on long haired faggots. We should encourage kids to join street gangs so they toughen up. Give every boy a gun and knife when they turn 13. There's nothing like getting shot at by an AK or doing a driveby to make you manly. Time in prison is a great way to learn how to deal with the real world. The commies and ragheads are tough, we need to keep up and get as barbaric as the ****ing caveman we're meant to be.

    Exactly. Only insecure males resort to bullying. That's why the coach's ugly behavior resonates with the OP.

    Insecurity -- conservatives are soaking in it.

    By the way, can you imagine John Wooden acting in such a barbaric fashion? He was always a gentleman. He was secure and knowlegeable and earned the respect of his players. In conservativebizarro world Wooden was a wussy.



    You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.

    Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.

    More pop psychology from the Right.

    Whether kids compete or not is not the issue (having four kids I know all about that, sonny). The issue is defining losing for 8 year olds as somekind of political failing of American culture that needs to be whipped out of them.

    That's the nonsense of the OP. Don't blame me for pointing it out.
