Title IX and Bill Mahr

WOW....as an athlete who benifited from the law I'm not sure if I should laugh at his comments or just shrug my shoulders and be disgusted.

I wonder if he could compete with any of the top women athletes from any sport.

He could probably trash talk with the best of them...but that would be it.

I've no idea what your talking about. Have you got an article or some quotes?

I'm surprised if he's against Title IX.

He was on right after the interview with Serena and Bob Costas. I don't have any transcripts.

One of his quotes went something like this, and mind you this isn't direct ,
Woman are not good in sports. Men and woman are good at different things and woman are good at having babies and taking care of the home. Men are good at sports."

Then he spewed some more about how Title IX is hurting male athletes.

That's REALLY surprising. This is the same dude from Politically Incorrect, right?

The show comes back on today in aout 45 minutes. I didn't see it the first time, I want to see it this time around. Bill Maher is a known misogynist. It's part of his annoying 'schtick'. I can't stand him or guys like him.
