My Stupid Opinion: Donald Sterling & Pro Sports PC

My Stupid Opinion

I have the same feelings towards Donald Sterling that I have towards Klansmen… none! That’s right, I don’t care. He’s just another old racist being paraded around on TV as the poster child for modern inequality. Instead of focusing on actual racists (ie George Zimmerman), we focus on billionaires with silly opinions and way too much time on their hands. He didn’t hurt anybody. He didn’t chase a black child down with a handgun and shoot him in the back. He made one ignorant comment in PRIVATE! We have way bigger fish to fry, don’t we?

I don’t care what you say in private. The problem is the NBA cares a lot. See, the NBA is a business. Like all businesses, they have to maintain a certain image. When something like this gets out, even when it’s in private, it’s considered detrimental to the organization. Doesn’t matter if it was in private or not, it still hurts the reputation of the organization. According to Sterling’s contract, the NBA can remove him for pretty much anything. It doesn’t matter why, they can just do it. Your freedom of speech is really only protected against the government, not private organizations with very strict contracts such as this one. So, Sterling and his pretty little play thing are shit out of luck right now if they expect to get a giant settlement from the NBA. I wouldn’t be too confident about having that $2,000,000 fee waived either. The NBA needs to make it look like they’re doing something to stop the big bad wolf of the Clippers.

What’s really sad about this situation is Mr. Sterling’s current state of health. It’s obvious based on recent interviews that he’s senile. I don’t mean that in a mean, metaphorical sense sense, I mean that in a literal sense. The poor man is senile! I don’t care what his opinion is, just let the man live his last years in peace. I’m not trying to justify his opinion, I’m trying to justify showing love and compassion to this man when everyone else is against him. I don’t care what his opinion is, he’s still human.

Remember Michael Vick? He killed dogs as a hobby and still makes millions of dollars a year in the NFL. Donald Sterling, a senile old man makes one ignorant comment and he gets fired and fined by the NBA. Which goes to show you that being racist isn’t politically correct, but killing animals is. One thing the NBA doesn’t realize is that actions and words are too very different things. Evidently, when it comes to sports, the lines between the two are very blurred. His comments didn’t change the team, didn’t change the game, and didn’t cause riots. So why did we paint a scarlet letter on him so quickly? Was it because we dislike racism? Probably not. Was it because of white guilt and political correctness? Probably.

I thought I’d just include a random quote for your consideration:  

“People say slavery had ended. I think they just renamed it ‘the NBA’ ” -Kenny Vs. Spenny

My Stupid Opinion: Nude Reading Club

No, this isn’t the title of a new porno that’s coming out, it’s a new “sensational” idea straight out of NYC. The concept is simple: A pulp fiction reading club that encourages women to take their tops off while reading in public. They’re goal is to promote reading I suppose. As a man, I both agree and disagree with this idea. I disagree with it because it’s obviously a feminist’s attempt to show how beautiful women are. I also disagree with it because it’s a terrible way to promote literacy. If taking off your bra made you a promoter of literacy, that would make Sara Jean Underwood look like Mother fucking Teresa. But in all seriousness, how does this promote literacy? If anything, it just promotes public nudity and being happy with who you are. Which I’m fine with, just don’t tell me that you’re bettering the world by showing your breasts.

The kicker is that a NYC photographer goes around and takes pictures of these ladies. So let me get this straight, you go in public, take off your shirt, and then get pictures taken of you? Weird, that reminds me of profession that most feminists are highly against. Yeah, that’s right, you’re essentially doing the same thing as porn stars. Don’t deny it and try to say that you’re doing it as art… you’re not! You want people to see you with your shirt off. That’s the bottom line. If I’m not mistaken, this is the exact same reason women hate Robin Thicke, Hugh Hefner, Terry Richardson, and every other male devil who has “objectified” women. You’re no better than them! Just because you do it with a “Cause” behind it, doesn’t make it any less of a porno shoot.

My Stupid Opinion: Feminists

A topic has never irritated me as much as feminism. If you’ve ever been to a classic sanfran district and talked to an uber liberal hipster girl, odds are you have talked to a feminist. Feminists are the nazi’s of women’s rights. Most likely why the term “feminazi” has been coined to describe feminists. They have done to women’s rights what mass shooters have done to the second amendment… they fucked it up. They are the KKK of the women’s rights movement. They take perfectly normal issues and turn them into women needing to kill all men. Seriously, that is something feminists have suggested that women do – kill all men! Don’t believe me? look it up. Oddly enough, part of their agenda is reducing violence against women. A little weird.

I think it’s unfair to call Feminists “women’s rights activists.” They are everything but women’s rights activists. Women’s rights activists are people with a firm, clear agenda that really needs to be implemented in society. Feminists are hateful, spiteful, old women with daddy issues and a violent agenda. It’s like what Al Qaeda is to Islam (liking these analogies, ladies?).

I think at this point it’s clear that I completely support women’s rights. I don’t really like to say I’m a women’s rights activist, I like to say that I’m a human rights activist. I don’t exclusively support the rights of women, I support the rights of every man, woman, and child on this earth. Feminists solely support the rights of women. That’s what bothers me about feminists!

If you need some feminist repellent, I’m sure that old bastard Rush Limbaugh has some.

Anyway, this is my stupid opinion.

My Stupid Opinion: Media and Violence

My Stupid Opinion: Media and Violence

I’m tired of hearing parents complain about movies, video games, and music. They say that media has become too violent and that it needs to be toned down. It doesn’t. I’m sure there are a few cases of video games causing somebody to kill another person, but that isn’t a widespread problem. If it has happened, it didn’t happen exclusively because of video games, it happened because they were mentally ill. 

More and more often in this day and age, parents use the media as an excuse for their lack of parenting. News flash: Family hasn’t caused your son or daughter to get bad grades, act out, and rebel… you did that all yourself. Like I said earlier, there are kids who are influenced by shows so much that they might act up, but again, it’s very rare. 

The fact that you’re complaining about the video games your kids play and the shows they watch tells me something about you: A) You have no control over your children and you let them walk all over you B) You are a crappy parent. Seriously, it’s sad that instead of wanting to parent, you just want an entire show to be off the air. You’d rather petition to have Family guy taken off the air than turn off your kid’s TV and tell them to read a book.

Some parents will probably say “My kids can watch TV with their friends. I can’t control that!,” and if you said that, you’re still a moron. Yes, you can control that. It’s called raising your kids properly. If your kids respect you and your decisions, they won’t watch a show or play a video game that their parents say is inappropriate It’s not rocket science here, people! 

Here’s another idea, instead of using your gaming consoles and TVs as a babysitter, why don’t you spend some time with your kids? They can sit on their asses watching a talking sponge for 3 hours or they can go outside and play catch with their dad/mom. Then again, I’ve watched TV since I was 3 or 4 and I’m turning out fine.

If you have an issue you’d like me to discuss, put it in the comments section!

My Stupid Opinion: Movies and TV

Movies are a dying art. Of course there are still some great movies out there, but in general movies suck. This isn’t the fault of the writers… I mean, it’s hard to create a plot with a beginning, middle, and end that only lasts 1.5-3 hours. I’d know, I’m a screenwriter. 

While movies are getting bad, TV is getting better. As TV networks slowly start drifting away from the boring “Everything is solved in 22 minutes” theme, they start introducing more sophisticated shows. As our shoes get more sophisticated, they also get longer. Basic format (Sitcom, late night drama, etc…) generally only take up 22 minutes of space on their respective network. The other 8 minutes is reserved for commercials. However, in recent years television networks have been adding new shows to their lineup that are significantly longer (22 minutes longer to be exact). With the new 44-48 minute shows in the lineup, the writers feel less pressure to conclude their plot after one episode. Writers have more freedom to let their plot cascade into other episodes, which is beautiful. Imagine watching The Walking Dead as a 22 minute show! If they were restricted to 22 minutes, they’d have to drastically reduce the amount of content in each episode. It would make more sense to conclude the plot at the end of each episode than to carry it through each 22 minute episode. Years ago, people thought the opposite was true. From the start of television, people assumed that the shorter the show, the more likely people were to watch. It was a philosophy that worked well with movies, so it would almost have to work with TV. Right? Well, in some cases the idea works perfectly. The reason it works well with movies is because people don’t want to sit in a movie theater for 4 hours waiting for the end. When you’re in your own home, you have the luxury of convenience. You can eat what you want, use the bathroom during commercials, and stop watching when you want. You don’t have to pay a babysitter, go to dinner beforehand, or buy expensive tickets, you just have to sit down on your couch. At a movie theater, people want the movie to be a reasonable length of time. They don’t want to have to worry about getting home on time for the babysitter, they just want to enjoy themselves.

In the case of Full House for example, the 22 minute format works well with the amount of content that they have to offer the viewer. If they had 44 minutes to offer all of that content, it would be a long, drawn out show with not too much going. So sitcoms are one place where the 22 minute format works. But there are quite a few places where this idea doesn’t work; namely with dramas. That’s right, Dramas… America’s guilty pleasure. See, in the 60’s, their idea of “Drama” was gilligan being stuck on an island. TV was still new and they didn’t know how to work it. Now-a-days, the drama is way more… er… dramatic? I mean come on, we have a TV show dedicated to braindead zombies that want to kill you! No, I’m not talking about FOX news, I’m talking about the Walking Dead (See what I did there?). It really doesn’t get any more dramatic than a group of people running around Georgia trying to avoid zombies!

Anyway, this is my stupid opinion.
