Stephen A. used to be my favorite analyst. But yes, he has said some bonehead things.
As Naismith said, under no circumstances should a man hit a woman. But that also goes the other way around. Under no circumstances should a woman hit a man, even though she might be "weaker" in strength.
For those who believe what he said wasn't a big deal, no matter what he actually meant and didn't word correctly, then we all need to talk about the ongoing oppression of women.
What he said is exactly what rapist-defenders say: "Well you should not dress in a way that provokes someone to rape you." Really?
Everybody should be able to dress however they please without having the fear that they will attract unnecessary idiots.
