Ok, it’s fair to say it is hate speech:
“Hate speech is speech which attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as race, religion, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, or gender.”
You could interpret then that saying a player hits like a girl is hate speech. Saying anything derogatory about Tim Tebow based on his religious beliefs is hate speech. Saying someone plays like a cripple is hate speech.
So if a player or media member says these things, is a 2 game suspension automatically warranted then?
