Why are there no women coaches in the NBA?

There are plenty of high level women's basketball minds. How come not a single one has been given a coaching job? I'm sure some are qualified.


Why did Sonia Sotomayor get away scott-free with saying a hispanic woman makes a more qualified court appointee than a white male?


Why is that known racists like Spike Lee and Joe 'jellybean' Bryant are flaunted by the ABC camera whenever they're in the crowd at a nationally televised game, but any known white racists would be treated like utter pariahs?



Why are straight people allowed to be married and gay people aren't?



I don't know the answers to any of these questions.

Marriage should not be a legal thing, it should have nothing to do with the government. Extremely fvking silly

A woman can still be impregnated artificially with her partners sperm even if either or both are sterile.

Whether or not I lose anything is irrelevant.

And sure why not, just don't call it marriage lol, though I'd prefer the government to just not legally recognize marriage/civil union.

This is a tired argument, and we're not going to agree, so whatever.

Translation: I am smart enough to realize my argument is intellectually weak, but I am too grossed out by gays to recognize their relationships as marriage.

The funny thing about all this is, the advocates of gay marriage are always like "marriage doesnt mean anything anymore anyway!!!! 50% divorce rate!!!! Gays should be allowed to be just as miserable as straights!!!!"


Basically they claim marriage is an antiquated and unnecessary institution, and then demand that it be expanded to include gays. Kinda weird.. It's like if you think it's so pointless anyway, why are you so obsessed with making it for same sex couples???

1. i think marriage means a lot.
2. their are real legal and economic benefits to marriage.
3. I am not obsessed with marriage equality, I have actually never done anything substantive for it other than voting and small amounts of monetary donations. But i would prefer to see legal adults be allowed to marry people they are attracted to and love, even if they share the same gender

Go against it?

Just because one support gay marriage, doesn't mean one has to support any other kind of marriage.

Historically marriage is a purely economic arrangement.

But for arguments sake how would you define and prove "love"? Seems like a pretty gellatinous foundation to base a thing like marriage on. Cant a man 'love' his mousepad?
