um, what?

L.A. Psychologist Who Didn't Get Tote Bag at Mother's Day Angel Game Files Lawsuit

I really have no other comment than, "what an idiot." Seriously. Who hasn't been to a game where they haven't been able to get the "free giveaway"? Suck it up and act like an adult.

Few would find it so petty if women were denied stereotypically "male"
handouts, such as baseballs or baseball cards, when women asked for them
(even on Fathers' Day). Even "petty" discrimination against men feeds into
the larger problem of gender stereotypes, misandry and anti-male sexism.

The fact that men are conditioned to accept it is partly why it continues in
larger areas involving human rights, such as: fathers denied equal parenting
rights; men getting higher sentences for the same crime; incarcerated
fathers denied equal visitation rights with their kids; male victims of
domeestic violence and their children denied equal services; men exempted
from the international ban on forced labor; men denied equal pricing or
services at hotels, car washes, restaurants; etc. Therefore, I support any
man who complains when he is discriminated against as a man, no matter how
large or small it may seem, and no matter what his subjective motives may

Most media ignore men's complaints about the larger forms of discrimination,
but jump all over the smaller forms such as this one, giving it national
coverage. That's because most media is sensationalistic, reactionary, lazy,
ignorant and biased.
