Dodgeball is an unethical tool of oppression.

Just in case you didn't get enough lolz today from the NBA and their outrage over the term "owners" , I bring you this fine nugget. You really have to read the full article because the insanity essentially quadruples down by the end of it.

If this shit continues the rest of the world will be having the West's lunch and we won't even be able to put up a fight......effin' sad.

Seriously, rather than trying to protect everyone from getting their feelings hurt how about we teach people to toughen the fuck up.

Ironic that there may be no more cutthroat form of competition than academia, especially at the college level. Supposedly collegial!

Only matter of time before all contacts sports are banned because of their violent toxic masculinity. It is going to be like Demolition Man where direct human contact is not allowed.

There is violent toxic masculinity in female nude mud wrestling? I never noticed it; must be my privilege shielding me again.

Holy shit, I shit myself from laughing reading this:

Quote:
Tag, for example, singles out one poor participant, often the slowest child, as the dehumanized “It,” who runs vainly in pursuit of the quicker ones. Capture the Flag is nakedly militaristic. British Bulldog has obvious jingoistic colonial themes. Red Ass, known in America as Butts Up, involves deliberate imposition of corporal punishment on losers.

The scary thing is that ideas once considered looney a few years ago are going mainstream. As ridiculous as this is, if the left keeps saying it enough, especially in our educational institutions, eventually an entire generation of people will start to accept it and refuse to think critically about it.

The oppression was extremely rich in the late 80’s-early 90’s. Its possible that drive bye shootings were the direct result of creations such as this.

Don't laugh, this is actually true.

I was one of the "oppressors." Blessed with my small frame and damn near Godlike shooting accuracy and catching ability i could not be beat at dodgeball..Oh i'd catch whatever shat you threw at me and get you out. Or i'd see your weakest moment and "aim for the leg" or the head, whatever threw my fancy (usually the head). After chuckling and humiliating my "prey" i'd move on to the next victim like some deranged psychopath. Until one day. I met a big black dude who made my throws look like they were done by a butterfly. As all "bullies" do i immediately brought him into the fold and teamed up with him to continue battering other poor schoolchildren. I should be shot for my war crimes!

Lol what is wrong with dodge ball? I didn't play it in my free time at recess or anything, rather play football or basketball, but I liked playing it during PE or anything like that over other stuff we sometimes had to play/do.

You must not be very athletic or agile if you didn't like dodge ball.

Lol just saying, the only people in elementary/middle school that I know that hated dodgeball were bigger kids who couldn't run/move quick to dodge the ball, or didn't have any hand-eye coordination to catch or throw the ball.

Btw, why so serious

Haha your right this proves even over dodge ball ppl can make internet arguments 😀

I was always a basketball person I think because it was just always ez to pick up a ball and play, the other sports were not ez to play after school.

Dodgeball was just kinda stupid to me because there was no actual sport competition to me. I think golf is much more competition because you get angry and want to do better. Dodgeball was always the idiot bully type kids havijg fun being able to hit the weak kids with a ball and it being allowed. There wasn't any sport or competition or athletic part to me

But your right this is getting too serious haha. But I would say watch the movie dodgeball it's so very funny because a lot of ppl think like I do and think it's the dumbest "sport" ever that loser tough guys would only enjoy (I don't mean that on you at all I just mean in general!)

The only fun thing about dodge ball is if you can whip the crap out of the ball (I was a pitcher) and be one of the last ones standing. That's the game. I think I remember playing it twice a year in gym-that and crab soccer!
