@beihai you seem to have just spent your time responding to every person who comments with a disagreement on the article insulting them and belittling their viewpoints.  I've seen you reply to many comments on here, and not one of them has been a response focused on content, merely putting others down.  How is that productive?

Misogyny is real, I don't deny it.  But yes, I think men as a whole have a right to be offended by the wide brush we're being painted with.  In the same way there are violent extremists in the muslim community but it's offensive to label all muslims as violent.  Imagine if you take the following section of this article and edit it about another people group-

Original - "But if you think for one second, for one solitary second, that demanding tolerance for men as a group, that dismissing the reality of violence against women because not all men kill, not all men rape, if you think that’s more important than demanding justice for those who have been brutalised and murdered by those not all men, then you are part of the problem."


Edited- "But if you think for one second, for one solitary second, that demanding tolerance for muslims as a group, that dismissing the reality of violence against non-muslims because not all muslims kill, not all muslims rape, if you think that’s more important than demanding justice for those who have been brutalised and murdered by those not all muslims, then you are part of the problem."


You can't have it both ways.  If the second one is offensive and wrong to declare, then so is the first one.

It doesn't help that Beasley has been playing out of position since he left Miami (and even a big chunk in Miami).  His numbers have always been better as a PF than a SF but he's been at the 3 since leaving.  And it looks like Phoenix isn't going to change that.  He can do better offensively AND defensively (not saying much, but still) against PFs than trying to chase Kevin Durant and his ilk around the court.
