    Fantasy Football 2018

    Looking like the end of the road in all leagues -- seems like a good time to end fantasy football as well. I'll be back for baseball if we can get enough interest (i.e. 10 teams where there isn't one with a sub-40 point total and 3 total moves).

    Trade between Jaime and I -- Josh Adams for Josh Gordon. I didn't want to reduce the number of Josh's on my team, but I wanted to put a better WR into my lineup. That's about it!

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    "Save her career"? Bullshit. It is complete and utter nonsense to suggest that her career needed to be "saved" (please define as she has made over 125$MM). You truly believe that politely requesting attention and an audience to have a roundtable or respect of and for minorities would result in anything other than ... nothing? Please provide 10 examples where this happened that you would like to emulate across all conversations about CA. Your reading comprehension is poor. I will not endorse tone-policing of minorities or anti-racist groups in order to avoid "giving ammo" to garbage people. Garbage people gonna garbage which was my point that you ignored. While you jump up and down and whine about overreactions to CA - legitimate gripes that are, in some cases, more histrionic than some (white-90%) people would like. My point is that you should be more concerned about the concern trolling by the alt-reich that IS going after people's careers using the same outrage cycle but based in complete and utter bullshit. James Gunn (he's fine but kicked off GoG3), Joy Reid, Dan Harmon, Trevor Noah, etc. (List just off the top of my head)

    What Do You Think Cultural Appropriation Is?

    (Full disclosure - not a Dan of her music) Katy Perry actually engages and acknowledged her own ignorance displayed by a number of choices (geisha outfit, cornrows, etc.) and has rather thoughtfully responded. She currently is, and has been, among the top ten grossing female artists over the last several years. So, what the fuck are you talking about? It's no surprise that you're unable to see that your tone-policing is more damaging than even the potential overreaction to cultural appropriation. I do believe that the "gotcha" pit-piling shaming culture is a problem - however, it is NOT limited to cultural appropriation. It is used by all, howver the impact is far worse depending on the constituency of the attackers and the attacked (victimization isn't solely owned by those who have been perceived to have violated a norm of the attackers - power dynamics between dominant and minority). The alt-reich consistently spins up the outrage machine on benignities seeking to silence legitimate speech or behavior. The typical outrage over CA is a legitimate gripe seeking to silence illegitimate speech or behavior.

    Feel free to start a thread there where your ignorance lack of interest may not be as flagrant. This thread is related to Cultural Appropriation -- if you don't feel that the topic is interesting or relevant from your perspective ... then. don't. post. about. in. that. thread. Not that hard bud. Remember that this is a US-centric board, so most of the conversation for those topic is regarded and engaged with from a US POV unless otherwise specified. Go forth and prosper.
