    Let me take cover before your fire off your responses.
    I would like to say thank you to the few posters here who are willing to call out others on this, rather than being so worried about being one of the 'good ol' boys'.

    My question to any male on this board who doesn't think that all the recent oral sex conversation is sexist and degrading to women:

    If it were your 18 year old daughter who just started college posting instead of Thunder (and some of you were encouraging Thunder when he was 16 or 17, maybe younger), would you condone and approve of all of these much older males encouraging your daughter to give and/or receive oral sex to/from as many college males as possible? Would you encourage your daughter to give oral sex to a random coed every time someone scores a run in the game, and to ask the guy to at least give you a tissue afterwards?

    If you can honestly answer yes to the question, then I will give you a pass on being sexist. Of course, I would think you have much bigger issues at stake in that case.

    Before you jump all over me with your 'lighten up' and 'stop playing the victim' posts, save your breath. I am far from being a feminist. I am hardly a victim. But don't kid yourselves into thinking that you're not being sexist and that you're just having fun. It's attitudes like these that can and does get young college women raped.

    End of rant and I will speak no more on the topic.

    I agree. On male-dominated sites like this it's very easy for posters to want to compete for "man points" when discussing the fairer sex. I'm in no way defending the ongoing meme, but on other sports boards your posts would be responded to with pictures of kitchens. Your intelligent baseball comments would be met by requests for nude pics. This might not be a perfect place, but I think it's more evolved than some of the cesspools I've been on.

    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win
