    Here's the one she tweeted that began the whole discussion: "For the cheap seats: Stop teaching girls & women how not to be sexually harassed and assualted. Start teaching boys & men not to be predators."

    Someone then asked her if anyone teaches their sons to be predators, and she replied with your quoted Tweet. Ridiculous.
    I'm at a complete loss on this stuff at this point. Politics aside, it's bad business. It's like... I'm sure there are people at Marvel and LucasFilm who would love to put a gay relationship between Cap and Bucky or Poe and Finn in their movies, but they're not going to. Why? Because you don't make $2 billion at the box office if every Evangelical in the country boycotts your movie. Same thing with Jemele Hill. You can't go out of your way to insult white people... and men... and the working class... and conservatives... when you're on a freaking sports network.

      Why would Poe ever go for Finn anyways? That's just bad writing

          There was a very clear and strong Bromance that developed between them almost instantaneously when they intro'd themselves in the runaway TIE.

              Right, but if they were both gay dudes, as in Wiz's initial post, why would they NOT go for one another after that strong intro?

                The chemistry was forced anyways. Any real bro would be pissed that another guy stole his badass jacket

                    Just FYI, this is me and I stopped watching ESPN long before I even knew who Hill was.

                    But your point is very valid.

                      Yeah but Finn was legit hitting on Rey the second he met her. So he's not gay.

                          This is where I'm at too. Between the double standard they set among the males/females and how they choose to enforce their rules, to the bizarre leftist pivot they've made over the last few years, it doesn't really make any sense. There's way too much bullshit debating in their programming now, I'm tired of seeing Stephen A. Smith on the screen every time I change the channel over. It was nice when you could just turn on ESPN to actually watch sports and watch Stuart Scott (RIP) replay the Top 10.

                          • Unless it's live sports, I almost never turn it on. Can't watch highlights anymore. Even late night Sportscenter is littered with hot takes and just reporters talking about the games. Very little of the actual plays being made.

                              Or watch competent people (Peter Gammons and Harold Reynolds) talk about the sport with a host who could show the highlights and keep the show interesting (Karl Ravech).

                              I haven't watched ESPN other than for live sports in at least 4 years. When we had cable, I used to watch MLB Network in favor of anything on ESPN. It's a big turd sandwich.

                                  • ESPN is absolute trash. That someone like Jemele Hill has maintained employment with them for this long speaks to how degraded the culture must be there. Aside from her race hustling and inane SJW feminism she is just a bad "journalist." She is not interesting, her writing is sophomoric, and her analysis is shallow and simplistic. She doesn't contribute anything journalist wise that any random dude off the internet couldn't.

                                    Also, "the six" is a horrible idea. I accidentally caught a few minutes of that when I was on the road travelling a few months ago and regretted it. Michael Smith is the male version of Hill.

                                      I actually liked Michael Smith. I enjoyed his articles, and then ESPN became what is was, put him on the 6 and he has definitely changed.

                                        Hill has the most predictable opinion on ESPN - she wants really hard to show a certain segment of the audience how 'down' she is. I use that terminology because it is vernacular that Jemele Hill knows well. I have refused to watch anything Jemele Hill is on for years, this goes way back to before she was on the sunday 'Sports Reporters' show; where she was painfully outclassed with other professionals on the panel. 2, 3 years ago a friend asked me what I have against Jemele Hill, and my response was, "to her, EVERYTHING is racist.". Fast-forward a couple of years, and lo and behold she gets suspended for her cancerous opinions, and divisive talk.

                                              the whole network of espn channels is damn near unwatchable at this point.

I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks for nothing!

Too bad Bodenheimer comes in saddled with so much of Skipper's shit. And I'm sure whoever the permanent guy they eventually choose to fill the shoes will be worse than both of them.

                                                                                        The guy sucks at flirting and trying to engage a female, but at no point did he try to force himself via text message... the shirtless pic was just a poor attempt at impressing her, not harassment, as were the nicknames he tried using on her.

                                                                                        Not to take away from the rest of the report, which makes it appear that ESPN truly treats pregnant ladies like shit.
