Default Re: Women as members at Augusta National Golf Club?

There's a simple solution to this. This is a golf club, make it a membership requirement that you must be able to carry two balls at all times without using your hands, mouth, or any foreign aids. Women are welcome to join if they can fulfill the requirement.

What the **** is wrong with you people? I honestly expected better from all of you and was surprised and disgusted by some of these comments. You would think grown men who can rationally debate so many topics, and who just weeks ago were all circle-jerking over their ability to change a another member's views on gay marriage would be above this kind of garbage.

This isn't not wanting to let girls up into your treehouse, it's the exclusion of an entire population based upon a factor they have no control over.
This is a civil rights issue, plain and simple.

To recast your words in a similar manner to what was done with Dirty Elf's infamous thread:

Picture this: A black's group creates a women-only golf course. Where they can hang out and talk about anything, never having to worry about whites being present. Then one day a white stages a fight to become a member of this blacks-only club. How big a douche bag would he look like? It's no different. On top of that, what if the club has been exclusive to blacks since 1933?

All I am saying is, blacks could golf the course, just couldn't become members (until now). That wasn't enough? They had to change the founding principals of the course so what... they could hang in the clubhouse with the whites and feel uncomfortable?

A place that you can fart, laugh loud, tell dirty jokes, etc. There was a main Resturant but the blacks lobbied to have access to the white's room and after 2 years of arguing, they got in.

2 months after they couldn't stand the "rudeness" of the whites and petitioned for no cigar smoking, fart and no ball scratching. I think they now use that room for private functions only.

Not to mention, there are so many black only workout facilities here in Vancouver. I know when the first couple opened, the marketing push was. Dont feel like your being spied on or judged, etc. A local TV reporter was under cover with a pin camera and tried to see if he could enter. It was so funny. " sir, there are many gyms which whites are allowed. The blacks here feel safe.....

Do you see whites trying to petition their way into black churches? Black book clubs? The black panthers? Fukk no. Never happened.

This is what our country is becoming and it is actually quite sickening. I don't get excited about too many things, but this one pushes my buttons.

I am going to start using the black's bathroom because they don't have the right to tell me I can't. It is racist for them to exclude me from their facilities because of my gender.

They ONLY reason these black people wanted to become members is because they were not allowed. This is one more notch on the blac rights belt, though it has nothing to do with it in reality. They should not have gave in even with this big firestorm of media that has been hovering over the facility.

This opens up so much more. There will be blacks in fraternities because that is racist as well.

Keep the blacks out - there is most definitely a hidden agenda.

Please get off your high horse and GTFO. If you're saying a private club can't have its own rules then you don't understand the very basis of how 'Murica works. Unless this is a public/gov't organization they have the right to set their own rules. If they want to have a boys club who gives a fuk..they still let women play as guests so what's the harm.

You are completely misappropriating every ones words here. To imply that not allowing a certain gender of person into a private club is the same as racial discrimination is flat out ridiculous.

Completely missing the point. Doing it right.

Like others have said, women could play as guests. That is not discrimination at all.
