"Seen As Sexist, Frozen Out By Radio Stations"
"Roughly translated, someone or some advertiser complained and the Station responded, followed by the Media blowing it up. In today's PC environment, a complaint gets a Lot of attention, someone's feelings are hurt, or someone is offended and boom!.... So, I have quite a bit more pity on the group that denounces than those who scratch their heads in disbelief and respond."


The left wing media cashes in on what is a small protest. The right wing media cashes in by making it seem like Christmas itself has been banned. Cha ching.

I have the most pity for some of my conservative friends on Facebook who have decided that this is their hill to die on. Some of them are posting over 10 times per day about this topic, while there are decidedly larger issues afoot in this country!!

It is like the Tide Pod "scare." A handful of dumb kids eat them on a dare, and then suddenly the Archie Bunker brigade spends the next month on Facebook proclaiming that this clearly shows that the millennials will destroy the earth because every person under the age of 30 obviously must be living on a diet of nothing but Tide Pods because the internet says so.

No flames from me. I get it. I don't get the white male thing. I hear that a lot, and think um, just be glad you aren't a female in the majority of cultures on the planet. Way better here, WAY.

It's really more of a male thing in general. Actually white males may be **** s, but compared to males worldwide, Western Civ has calmed us down some. We are still pretty bad, but at least we have a word in our culture for sexism. We've come a long way baby.

The "right"?...of course not, but if someone does, well, that is life.

"Just like"?...You can't be serious, comparing these two?...
