The biggest problem with Gary Bettman's response to 'Katy Perry' chant

Calling a player you don't like a girl's name is sexist. There's no reason for the commissioner or anyone else to pretend otherwise.
Muse Seymour's insight:

A great response from Sean Gentille and good work by Jesse Spector and Sarah Kwak to continue pushing the issue. Calling a player a girl or female name or whatever is absolutely sexist, misogynistic, and utterly idiotic. It is not the same as saying, "you suck", and if you think it is you are part of the problem.
