This is the issue. Not sure why posters aren't getting it.
If you bought weed legally then why should you think twice about purchasing it with a credit card?

OP makes an excellent point. "Football is the ultimate man's sport," is a sentiment a lot of people agree with.
The only question is, "How do you define a man?"
It creates gender confusion and most people aren't comfortable when things can't be packaged in a nice, neat little box.

If a top WR recruit can't look at our offense this year and drool at the opportunity to play in Cam's system then that's not the reason he's choosing schools.
