As if the Ray Rice situation wasn’t bad enough, now we have Rush Limbaugh complaining that all this concern over NFL players beating up women is leading to the “chickification” of the NFL. Because apparently it’s terribly emasculating to men not to be allowed to beat the hell out of their wives and girlfriends.
Addressing NFL broadcaster James Brown’s commentary Thursday night challenging “the NFL community and all men” to do something about domestic violence, Rush Limbaugh lamented that NFL executives and sports journalists are “chickifying” football.On Friday’s broadcast, recorded by Media Matters for America, Limbaugh called concerns over the abuse of women by NFL players, “… a race to see who can be the most politically correct feminist guy.”
“This is crazy. We’re feminizing this game, and its a man’s game, ” Limbaugh said. “If we keep feminizing this game, we’re going to ruin it. Keep chickifying this game, we’re going to ruin it. It’s going to become something it was never intended to be. And so many men now, executives in the league and sports drive-bys are in a race to see who can be the most politically correct feminist guy. It’s comical to watch this.”
Rush Limbaugh is an obnoxious, sexist gasbag (yes, I know — understatement of the century).
