Feminist gripes about domestic violence have gotten to the National Football League.
The NFL announced a new Personal Conduct Policy (pdf)
It appliesThis is crazy. Don't we already have a legal system for dealing with crimes?
(a) to pretty much everyone touching the hem of the NFL’s garment: ...
(b) to pretty much all conduct 24/7, whether job-related or not:
“If the league finds that you have engaged in any of the following conduct, you will be subject to discipline. Prohibited conduct includes but is not limited to the following:
Actual or threatened physical violence against another person, ...
Conduct that poses a genuine danger to the safety and well-being of another person; and
Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL personnel.
and (c) whether or not such activity is lawful or unlawful: ...
Oh, and everyone subject to the policy (a category that includes secretaries in team offices, drivers of team buses, trainers, team statisticians, employees in the NFL Human Resources Department, . . .) has to “to promptly report any matter that comes to their attention (through, for example, victim or witness reports, law enforcement, media reports) that may constitute a violation of this Policy . . . [and] [f]ailure to report an incident will be grounds for disciplinary action.”
This is obviously written to allow maximum arbitrariness in NFL bowing to feminist demands and punishing players.
The weird thing about this policy is that, for all its lawyerly thoroughly, there is no exception for football play on the field. It has banned "physical violence". How do you play football without physical violence? This football policy has banned blocks and tackles.
You cannot cave into crazy demands like this. The feminist will just make more. There is no pleasing them. There are feminists who demand monthly paid menstrual leave, with guarantees of no slowdown in career advancement.
Steve Sailer is getting to the bottom of the UVa frat house gang rape story. Jackie's friends not only doubted her rape story, they doubted it before it even happened as she seemed to be going out on a date with a fictitious person. It appears that she invented the guy in oder to make a friend jealous. They only humored her in the same way that they might humor a friend who claimed to be abducted by space aliens. The smashed glass table story may have been taken from the movie Gone Girl, where a broken glass table is both a sign of a crime and a sign that the crime was faked.
Britain has anti-social behavior orders where judges can take away rights for otherwise lawful things. The Manifesto Club sticks up for everyday rights.
