Media clutch pearls over Tiger Woods' "misogynistic" prank
« on: February 18, 2023, 08:13:35 AM »
First up, the story itself:

Tiger Woods responds to backlash of handing Justin Thomas a tampon: 'Friends having fun'

Woods played the 'prank' on Thomas after outdriving him on Thursday

Tiger Woods still has some power in his swing, and he let his playing partners know about it on Thursday.  After Justin Thomas failed to outdrive the 47-year-old Woods, the 15-time major champion handed him a tampon.  The incident occurred on the ninth tee during the first round, but people started to take notice of what happened late Thursday night.

One writer said Woods had "employed basic misogyny to insult" Thomas, "replicating an old prank that immature school boys used to think was funny." Another said Woods had stooped to a "new low," and many others thought the move was sexist and degrading to women.

Cue the outrage machine from both sports media (who are as leftist as regular media) and your mainstream folks:

TMZ: WOMENS GROUP RIPS TAMPON GAG ...
Misogynistic, Tone Deaf!!!


Tiger Woods is being called out by a women's empowerment group for his tampon prank at a PGA Tour event ... saying how dare he, especially with a daughter at home.

Kara Sugar, CEO of the Women's Global Empowerment Fund, tells TMZ ... Tiger's tampon moment was not only misogynistic but also tone-deaf and straight-up disrespectful to women and girls all over the world.

Sugar ripped the golfing legend, wondering if he's intimating "periods are embarrassing or shameful or a sign of weakness?"

As you know ... Tiger was playing his Friday round at the Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles with Justin Thomas when he hit his ball further than Justin and handed a Tampax to his friend and competitor. The misguided sentiment -- Justin hits "like a girl."

The women's group says it's sad to see Tiger do this because he's a grown man with a daughter ... and they feel the joke distracts from the serious issues involving mental health and periods, which women and girls around the globe face.

The offended need to grow a set of balls (rather than having a set sewn on and pretending).

'Hits like a girl' is biological reality - bone density, muscle mass and genetics are proof of it. It isn't hateful to point it out or even to *gasp* joke about it.

I think the hilarious part is Tiger Woods walking around with a tampon in his golf bag ready to hand out to the pussies he's relegated to play with.

 :lmao:   :rotf:

I disagree. Tiger is the one who needs to grow a set of balls.

He should never have apologized. THAT is the real issue. Once people start manning up and just say “**** you”, this snow flake bullshit will stop.

Well, Tiger has a set of 'nads - we know that from his excursions to other sources of female-dom. BUT your point about not apologizing is most definitely in order.

You all went to town on this topic, so I'm glad I brought it over.

First, I've never been a fan of Tiger. Golf fans heard about him before the internet and the Golf Channel even emerged. Most of his fan base are uneducated sycophants who always root for the front runner.

Secondly, this was a simple prank, the same thing that happens not just on golf courses but in gyms and locker rooms across the country and world, men and women. Yes, pearl clutchers, women tease one another just as much if not more than men. Gender equality and all. Ask your favorite woman.

Third and finally: Tiger should have never freaking apologized. One never cowers to the perpetually outraged left. They'll always find another reason soon to hate you anyway.

And to echo this, an appropriate column from PJ Media:

Quote
Tiger Woods Should Be Ashamed of Himself (for Apologizing)

Everyone is mad at Tiger Woods. No, he didn’t cheat on his wife and the mother of his children with multiple women this time. Nor did he drive his car across two lanes of traffic before crashing it. He didn’t even tick everyone off by underperforming during the first round of the Genesis Invitational on Friday, his first official PGA Tour event in over seven months. No, Tiger did something far worse: he made a joke — a joke that offended the ruling class.

ABC News covered the prank that sent the pink p*ssy hats into a tizzy:

It started when [Woods] ripped a 323-yard drive, some 10 yards longer than the 29-year-old [playing partner Justin] Thomas. Walking off the tee, Woods discreetly put something in Thomas’ hand, which Thomas tossed to the ground when he realized what it was — a tampon, to remind him that Woods hit it farther. Woods laughed and put his arm around Thomas.

THE HORROR!!!
You can’t see it in this video, but Thomas laughed, too — because it was funny.

You could hear the shreeing of feminist harpies from miles away.

Maybe if these gals had a sense of humor, they could relieve their pre-menstrual tension with a good laugh. Tiger dutifully offered a semi-apology when questioned by a female reporter. “Your joke with JT from nine yesterday is kind of going viral,” she accused. “Can you kind of just explain your thoughts behind it?” Because everyone knows that once you explain a joke, it stops being funny.

The plain truth is that women aren’t as physically strong as men. (I’m talking about actual women, not “transgender” appropriators.) Tee Precision notes that “Collectively, women have a lower average driving distance than men. For instance, in 2019, men had an average driving distance of 223.4 while women had an average driving distance of 166.4 yards.”

Sorry, womyn, that’s just the way it is. And thus, it’s funny — and effective — to tease men by comparing them to ladies.
