MLB is changing the name of the Disabled List to Injured List because a few disabled people got mad  :lol

Quote
The league will make the change out of concern that the term "disabled" for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports.

"In recent years, the commissioner has received several inquiries regarding the name of the 'Disabled List,'" Pfeifer wrote. "The principal concern is that using the term 'disabled' for players who are injured supports the misconception that people with disabilities are injured and therefore are not able to participate or compete in sports. As a result, Major League Baseball has agreed to change the name 'Disabled List' to be the 'Injured List' at both the major and minor league levels. All standards and requirements for placement, reinstatement, etc., shall remain unchanged. This change, which is only a rebranding of the name itself, is effective immediately.''

Next, the NFL will change the name of the PUP (physically unable to perform) list so as not to offend men with erectile dysfunction.

Is it still socially acceptable to refer to a fighter as being on "Queer Street" when he staggers around the ring after taking a vicious hit?  :popcorn :lol

As a boxing fan of nearly 60 years-as an eight-year-old, I watched the ill-fated Mar. 24,1962 Emile Griffith-Benny "Kid" Paret World Welterweight Title bout with my father-Paret,who dropped Griffith in Round Six,was himself knocked out by Griffith in the twelfth as ref Ruby Goldstein,himself a former Lightweight contender in the Dirty Thirties ,failed to halt Griffith's at least two-dozen-punch fusillade before Paret,who died Apr. 3,1962,of brain injuries inflicted by the beating,slumped to the canvas- I haven't heard "Queer Street" used to describe a woozy boxer's condition since the 80's .

Justin NoCal,that's because I doubt if you were born before Mar. 24,1962.Had you been and viewed that tragic bout,as I did,you'd never forget it.

I know.In fact,the enmity between Griifth and Paret stemmed from Paret's calling Griffith a "maricon," Spanish for homosexual .( Griffith was in fact bisexual,and a few years before his passing was victimized by a homophobic hate crime outside a gay bathhouse.) Homophobia was three generations ago,and to no small part today is strong in Latin machismo culture. Griffith,upon hearing Paret's slur,said,"I hate Paret so much,I hope I kill him," which unfortunately occurred. However,years later,in an act of extraordinary generosity of spirit, Paret's widow met and forgave Griffith for her husband's death
