Laying down the law


Recently I was reading a blog by a NYC criminal defense lawyer called “Simple Justice.” I am a criminal defense lawyer and usually like his take on issues. I was reading an article about kids who get arrested for fighting at their little league games. The author was lamenting the fact that coaches usually broke these up in the past but now we arrest the kids. Then he says he doesn’t know why the coaches don’t break the fights up anymore, unless it’s because “they don’t want to get their skirts dirty.” I commented quoting that line and asked “Really?” His response was “Really.” I guess I’m a humorless feminist for being pissed at being blind-sided by this needless bit of misogyny in an otherwise great piece, or expecting a better level of discourse than juvenile sexist insults. Oh well, it’s #MFIF.
