Bill Whitaker has not been the best. I thought he might do better given his journalistic chops.

Glad someone beat Julia. She was annoying and frequently reacted immaturely.

Mike Richards

[Edited on August 11, 2021 at 1:40 PM. Reason : he was really good, but was it an actual competition or just a ratings grab? ]

Blaaaah

Didn't really watch any of Richards's episodes, but the stuff coming out about him is kinda concerning. Bialik was terrible imo. At least she won't be hosting the regular jeopardy.

he had the personality of a fresh out of the box White Guy Game Show Host

https://www.theringer.com/tv/2021/8/5/22611962/jeopardy-new-host-mike-richards-sony

the author of that piece, Claire McNear, wrote an excellent book about Jeopardy that came out last year

Quote :
"“It is humbling to confront a terribly embarrassing moment of misjudgment, thoughtlessness, and insensitivity from nearly a decade ago. Looking back now, there is no excuse, of course, for the comments I made on this podcast and I am deeply sorry. The podcast was intended to be a series of irreverent conversations between longtime friends who had a history of joking around. Even with the passage of time, it’s more than clear that my attempts to be funny and provocative were not acceptable, and I have removed the episodes. My responsibilities today as a father, husband, and a public personality who speaks to many people through my role on television means I have substantial and serious obligations as a role model, and I intend to live up to them.”"


So sick of hearing this same exact thing by everyone accused of being inappropriate. It would be better if the person would just say "I'm a horrible person, that's my nature, I can't help myself."

And so many men get away with their behavior after apologizing.

Yeah, WTF was with that?! Guest hosting Jeopardy and it cuts to her hawking Neuriva.

That's a conflict of interest. Did Alex Trebek's Colonial Penn commercials air during Jeopardy? Maybe.

Caught my first episode of Ken Jennings hosting. He did pretty good, but he doesn’t have the correct snark that Trebek had.

^^ I think they have had other Trans contestants but she is by far the most successful. She is dominant as well wagers pretty aggressively (not James Holzhauer aggressive).

^^Correct snark? Alex was pretty pompous. Went to tapings when NC State hosted the college tournament and was turned off Jeopardy for nearly a decade by his in-person personality. Ken is a nice person who actually has the knowledge to back up the position of authority. They should give him the permanent host job, but probably won't because the choice is too obvious for executives to get right.

I've become very progressive in most of my viewpoints, but I kind of draw the line here (at least for now).

You don't get to change biology. The guy has a male sex chromosome in every single cell of his body. That's a man. I understand that purposely using a gender other than what the individual prefers is considered hugely offensive to the individual and the community, and of course I wouldn't have the gall to take this stance to the person's face. I'd just be silent or civil. I wanted to see if I would get a rise, and TWW did not disappoint.

Does this make me just another shit person? I'm open to having my mind changed (yes, even in a thread about Jeopardy), but I really don't get it. I also wonder whether the homosexual community truly identifies with unique trans issues, or whether they are just natural allies as historically marginalized sub-groupings of society.

I thought the bathroom bill was stupid and unnecessary, but I'm also not really in favor of upending biological sex and significantly complicating standardized forms just so someone doesn't get their feelings hurt.

Also, I'm not putting pronouns in my E-Mail signature either. Come at me, bro (or sis, or gender non-binary address of choice)! So tuff!

Seems pretty low bar to just call people what they want

As for the science argument, do you insist on DNA sequencing before choosing a pronoun?

[Edited on December 1, 2021 at 8:44 PM. Reason : Late 30s also seems late in life to troll to "get a rise" ]

[Edited on December 1, 2021 at 8:45 PM. Reason : What about non xx/xy? What about xx/xy born with opp genitals? ]

Much like with the bathroom bill, if it's convincing, no one even notices in normal daily activities, so it seems a non-issue.

I disagree that trolling has an age threshold. I also draw a distinction between nonstop purposeful trolling and impulse / opportunity trolling. You've been on the internet long enough.

How do intersex people function currently? Curiously, they don't seem to be the ones strongly advocating for change. Except Caster Semenya. They're the ones who really got screwed in life, but as far as athletic competitions go, if you have a Y chromosome, you should compete against men.
