A Washington Post columnist is in some hot water for comparing Ray Rice to Fred Flintstone. Well not really, but one reader did not appreciate the comparison and decided to write a letter to the editor expressing his contempt.
Sally Jenkins of the Washington wrote this talking about the Ray Rice controversy.
As Stephen A. Smith says, “See, we keep talking about the guys, when we never talk about the elements of provocation.” See, some guys can sound so dumb you’d think they had a chair broken over their head, but the first element of provocation a woman should avoid is calling them on it, whether it’s an NFL official justifying a two-game penalty for a running back going all Flintstone on his wife, or an ESPN announcer who holds your cable subscription hostage while he tries to string two sentences together. As Smith likes to say to “the female members” of his family, “Let’s try to make sure that we do our part in making sure that doesn’t happen.”
A beloved Flintstones enthusiast named Martin Kramer from Takoma Park, fired back at Jenkins and explained why she should not compare the man to the fictional cartoon character.
I got a real kick out of this.
