Fan Shaming Be Damned

Daily Random Shit for 2016-04-01: Fan Shaming Be Damned A female friend posted this article, saying that most of her male friends aren’t even into sports… That popped a balloon for me…   My response: Stereotypes be damned, shaming someone who prefers sports versus foreign films be damned.
