The new 1950's man
McNair, 36, was shot by his 20-year-old mistress, Sahel Kazemi, a waitress at Dave & Buster's. Gatti, 37, was allegedly strangled by his 23-year-old wife, Amanda Rodrigues, a former dancer at Scores.
I'm not dismissing the smaller, more obvious lessons: 1.McNair needed to keep his butt at home with his wife and kids; 2. Middle-aged, millionaire men shouldn't romance 20-year-old children who are looking for their lottery ticket.
And I'm not blaming the victims. McNair and Gatti did not in any way get what they deserved. No one deserves to be murdered.
What I'm saying is the institution of lying/marriage is a horrible idea for athletes.
Okay, fair enough, the author talks about why athletes should not get married but what caught my eye was this comment:
If McNair could keep his dick in his pants, he'd be alive today, and that's a fact.
As Mr. Whitlock noted, no one deserves to be murdered in the way that these men were--and that is really what the debate is about. Women are murderers too and the men are being blamed for it. A society that believes that McNair and other men had what was coming to them because of their male sex is one that is neither just nor fair. It is just that now, the genders are reversed. Men are the new 1950's women --but at some point, this will change, as men get wise and quit taking it. Women need to be held responsible for these murders in order to reduce them.
