His post screams irresolute observation.
No, he found it "hilarious"(ironic) that one women would join discraft(val) after leaving another company due to women's equality. This gives the image of discraft supporting women's rights(escpecially after Val got a sig disc). But then a long-time legend(king) leaves discraft due to concerns of women's equality and not getting a signature disc.

I would hope you see the funny part of the irony, because he wasn't trying to discredit women's rights/equality

Neither funny nor ironic (which are not synonyms by the way). Also not interesting.

It seems the New KC Pro is a Blended style of all the KC Pro plastics, why it feels off becuse it is a feels like a compromise of the 9X-12X plasitc's from his touring days. Yes the company says the new plastic is still the 12X but if that is true then it should feel like old 12x plastic and Innova is or recently in the last few years began starting its decline with plastics and how they feel.

No..........I think it is VERY important here, that it is emphasized that EK did not state she was leaving Discraft for ANYTHING to do with gender inequality. Some may wish to read it into her statement (heck, might even be true) but, nowhere, that I have read, did the issue of gender get raised.

God people like you are tiresome. Anyone who believes that there might be disparities and inequalities worth pointing out and correcting is a white knight and a SJW. That Valerie Jenkins advocating for herself makes her a "crazy feminist". As you said its all noise to you, "blah blah women's rights, sexism, blah blah".

What I find interesting is how much Valerie's actions and advocacy for women's disc golf piss you off. That you held on to it all year and then took this opportunity to go off the rails about it. Its weird.

This is a stupid assertion. The concepts of "white knight" and "feminist" are mutually exclusive. The idea of "white knights" is that men cannot defend the notion that women are people on the internet sincerely, but that it is only done as a cynical exercise to attract the favor of women. "Feminism" is the sincere idea that women are people and that they deserve the same fairness that is usually granted to men.

If you're going to be a cynical jerk, at least use the words correctly. For example, you could have called people "white knight fake feminists," or even dragged a recent BS buzzphrase like "virtue signaling" into the poorly-delivered insult.

I award you 0/10 points.
