    As your own response proves, that claim you made was ****ing retarded. Even you cannot support it, and you ****ing made it.



    Actually you did. You said words can't damage anything.

    Since that blanket statement INCLUDES words when used to bully, you most certainly did say something about bullying, you simple failed tyo comprehend what you yourself said. That's your ****ing fault for not thinking before talking.



    Then you did a very ****ing pathetic job, since you said nothing even remotely close to that, but instead said some stupid ass bull**** which included the idea that verbal bullying doesn't damage anything.

    At least have the balls to admit you said something stupid that you can't even support. Don't pussy out and pretend you said some totally different **** which you never said.
    We are talking about adults in this scenario, not children.

    People decide to take offense to what another says and that is their choice.

    In this case a lot of people decided to take offense, or fake that they did, in order to remove him from the league.

    Nothing he said was offensive and he said it in a private conversation to that woman.

    Since when do words outweigh actions?

    Killing for entertainment and the removal of insects, not at random but when they become a nuisance, is really no comparison.

    Vick is worse but what's your point? Are you trying to distract us from the vileness of Stirlings comments? This controversy isn't about Vick it's about Stirling.

    Sterling is a powerful man who holds influence over the lives of a team of professional athletes who also happen, in large part, to be black. While the fact that these comments came out in the way they did was less than ideal, that detail is now somewhat irrelevant because of Stirling's power over these players.

    What Vick did was horrifying and in my opinion he never should have been allowed to return to the sport but that is an entirely separate issue having more to do with the absurd way we glorify celebrities and allow our athletes (whether they be college or professional) to rape women and pillage small villages and be forgiven, more than anything else. The fact that he was a black man was incidental. BTW Vick went to prison and paid his debt for what he did.

    Luckily equality is a front burner issue right now. Whether it be about marriage equality, racial equality or equality for women and they are finally getting the attention they deserve in a way that will hopefully create a permanent space in peoples awareness that will affect how they chose to behave

    I'm not even 30 yet and so many of my childhood lessons are apparently outdated. I think some would want me to believe that actions & words are on a level playing field.

    Vic went to jail, Sterling will not. In the end, neither harmed humansnthough Sterling's actions were.aimed at humans.
