    I don't think sending a Rule 5 pick back to his original team is every an "egg on face" thing. It's the normal. Keeping Rule 5 picks is the unusual.

    I don't think I'll adjust my usage, given that the Oxford Dictionary defines misogyny as:
    Dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
    ‘she felt she was struggling against thinly disguised misogyny’
    I'm pretty sure it was not your intent to insinuate that behavior such as what is alleged in this case could occur because someone "adored women" too much, but the impression left when I first read the comment comes dangerously close to that, imo.
    I would maintain that the extreme mistreatment is reflective of a person who has an "ingrained prejudice against women," whether that prejudice is due to "dislike of" or "contempt for" women or simply a strong feeling that they are entitled to control women. The level of extreme disrespect such behavior reflects comes close enough to me that I'm comfortable using the term in question to describe it.
    I understand if your opinion differs and I'm perfectly willing for us to agree to disagree.
    I appreciate those who have taken the time to read this piece and, especially, anyone who takes the additional time to offer a well-thought out comment.
