    I know we've beaten a dead horse enough but just one more thing....

    Anybody remember this?

    Griner Ejected After Punching Opponent - YouTube

    Griner was only suspended 2 games for deliberately trying to take somebody's head off and still managed to be the media darling throughout her career. We all know it's ridiculous that BYU fans think Kane should be imprisoned for his incidental eye poke but thought this would be good if anybody needs some ammo against BYU or Iowa fans.

    Men should never hit women...what Griener did was just unacceptable.

    I know I'll get blasted for saying this, but that type of comment is really sexist and problematic. It helps reinforce the concept of a weak, subservient woman by mocking someone who has broken out of that role. Sorry, I just take issue with things like that.

    That's got nothing to do with it...

    Plenty of good women athletes out there of all ranges in talent level and appearances. That being said...

    Britney Griner = a man.

    By calling a woman a man, that reinforces the concept of a weak, subservient woman? Please, tell me more.

    I agree with you a 100%. There have also been a lot of shots taken against Mormons this week. I guess a lot of posters don't realize Iowa State have fans who fall under that faith.

    The audience for a joke does not effect whether or not a joke is problematic. The fact is, the joke was mocking a person for something completely outside of their control (appearance, sex, gender.) Gender stereotyping is a major problem in our society currently. I want to make it clear that I'm not in any way attacking anyone for making this joke. My goal is just to get you to think about the negative aspects of the joke and what stereotypes/gender rolls the joke enforces.

    Except she hasn't "broken out of that role," she is just way bigger than anyone else on the floor and doesn't get called for fouls.

    I think Justin Bieber is a girl and make jokes about her all the time. Tell me what negative effect that is having on prepubescent boy singers and the stigma society places on them. (can't just have it one way with BG and how she represents women.) Tell me how I am an awful and insensitive person now please. A girl happens to look like a guy, lighten up people...

    Sounds like a "you" problem. Griner has bigger balls then you.
