The Ralph Lauren Corporation is cutting ties with golfer Justin Thomas over his use of a homophobic slur. Thomas apologized for the incident, which occurred at a PGA Tour tournament in Hawaii last Saturday. "There's no excuse," Thomas told the Golf Channel in an on-air apology immediately after his round. In a statement, the company said it was discontinuing its sponsorship of Thomas because of his use of the slur, which the company said inconsistent with its values.(Snip) A former world No. 1, Thomas is now third in golf's rankings. "As we make this decision, our hope is that Mr. Thomas

Typical rush to judgment. I thought he was referring the original meaning, "a bundle of sticks or twigs, esp. when bound together and used as fuel". If he'd used the other 'F' word he would have been fine.

It likely wouldn't take much digging to unearth an ill-spoken word that came out of Lauren's mouth. This hypocritical new puritanism being signed onto by the progs is really nauseating. On to rabid book-burnings and re-edits of hundreds of thousands of the movies their people made which are replete with "offenses". They sure are full of themselves.

Values such as pressuring boy models into drug-fueled gay sex, the same way they molest women and girls. The fashion industry is an open sewer of degeneracy, on a par with our other moral arbiter, Hollywood.

"sucks" is a derogatory homosexual word. Or it used to be. Pretty much the word became mainstream when the movie "Dracula Sucks" came out. Having grown up in the 50's I am appalled today when kids use the word so freely.

Maybe a bunch of other pros should stand in solidarity with JT and not show up. There are maybe 2 pros on the entire tour who are completely innocent of uttering profanity and/or slurs on the golf course. Raise your hand if you never told your putter, or driver, to go F itself. Or called yourself an F'n A..hole...out loud...more than once...a round.

Justin made it worse by apologizing for it. It's golf. Anyone whose played golf for any length of time has said far worse on the course. Besides he said it to himself directed at the ball which is as far as I know, has no sexual orientation.

Prior to 1976 "homosexuality" was listed in the United States as mental illness. The listing was taken out via political action (not science or a study). Homosexuality continues to be listed as a mental illness in International Classification of Diseases Am American may not be able to verify this post, as the International Classification of Diseases has been reduced to "excerpts", which leave out Homosexuality as a diagnosis.

But now it is okay to intentionally and often say the F-word, that's a crude (and actually violent) description of a sexual act, in every movie, song, and even on TV now!! And they don't care how it affects the rest of us --especially children--not to mention society as a whole. But to accidentally utter (under one's breath) a old (albeit negatively charged) slang word for "homosexual" in an emotional outburst is now an unforgivable "Federal" crime punishable by losing one's livelihood? Apologies never accepted no matter how sincere.

First off, there is no such illness called homophobia. Second, I love how these companies always talk about their "values". Their values are to make money. They think they have to grovel to homosexuals to make their money. That's all there is to it.

These corporations are always virtue signaling about their "values." Their values are nothing like those of normal people, and we would be disgusted and horrified to learn what many of them are. Too bad so many of these terrible companies are still in business, but I suppose there are people who like to buy their overpriced and snooty products.

Re#10: I am not afraid of homosexuals. Actually, I pity them their mental illness. The word I use in place of the term homophobic is "homoaverse", meaning I have an active feeling of visceral repugnance, dislike, or distaste towards them. I consider their "lifestyle" to be an affront to nature. I do not voluntarily associate with homosexuals nor do I use the word "gay" in reference to homosexuals. I do not use derogatory terms in reference to homosexuals, nor would I ever seek to harm a such a person in any way. That would be uncivilized. They suffer from mental illness and should have our sympathy. I refer to homosexuals as "homosexuals". That is the most accurate label currently available.

Eerie video footage shows emergency warnings being tested out before Inauguration Day in almost empty streets around the US Capitol. A short clip recorded Saturday afternoon shows the usually bustling streets near the Capitol building in Washington, DC, almost completely empty after the district put up a ring of steel amid ongoing threats of violence. Adding to the unsettling scenes, a loudspeaker repeatedly states, “This is a test of the US Capitol Police audible emergency notification system.” “Super dystopian,” said Remora House DC, a “collective” that helps the district’s homeless, as it shared the clip. “Super scary times we living in.”

South Philadelphia—President-Elect Joe Biden spent the morning of Martin Luther King Day, Jr. in service to the homeless and those less fortunate, in Philadelphia. Biden was volunteering as part of MLK Day of Service at Philabundance, assembling boxes of food for those in need. The President-Elect and Dr. Jill Biden were among the many volunteers at the South Philadelphia location, working together to fill boxes of food. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday was first recognized as a national holiday in 1986. In 1994, Congress designated the federal holiday as a day of service, in order to recognize the civil rights

Shoppers from minority groups are more likely to shop online than go into a store, in order to avoid racial profiling, according to a new report. The study from the French beauty company Sephora found that in order to avoid incidents such as being falsely accused of shoplifting, minority shoppers avoid touching product samples, make a point of chatting to sales assistants and make sure they are well dressed, all in order to lessen the possibility of being racially profiled when “shopping while black”. Last summer, fashion brands were called out for alleged hypocrisy, for making public statements of support for the Black Lives Matter movement

Various left-wing writers (some of them nominally Republican) have been salivating over the prospects of a GOP civil war. Nothing would make them happier than to see Republicans tearing each other apart in a fight over President Trump and the future of the GOP. However, this will not happen. It is a sign of how self-delusional the anti-Trump forces are that they could look at the House of Representatives vote on impeaching President Trump (for the second time) and convince themselves this is the harbinger of a Republican civil war. The House voted 232-197 Wednesday to impeach the president. Every
