NOW: Paterno Should Resign Over Comments
(AP) STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Womens rights advocates who say Joe Paterno made outrageous remarks about an alleged sexual assault want the Penn State football coach to resign.
Joanne Tosti-Vasey, president of the National Organization for Women in Pennsylvania, said Paternos comments last week represent an institutional insensitivity that endangers women. She issued a news release late Friday calling for Paternos resignation.
When someone of his stature makes light of sexual assault, we have a serious problem, Tosti-Vasey said. It sends a message that this behavior is not serious ... that sexual assault or rape or violence against women is acceptable for an athlete.
The coachs remarks came a day before the Orange Bowl, when a reporter asked a question related to Florida State linebacker A.J. Nicholson. Nicholson was accused of sexual assault and sent home before Tuesdays game.
Paterno replied by talking about past suspensions of Penn State players, according to an official transcript from the Orange Bowl.
He then added: Theres some toughtheres so many people gravitating to these kids. He may not have even known what he was getting into, Nicholson. They knock on the door; somebody may knock on the door; a cute girl knocks on the door. What do you do?

Hopefully she hasn't contaminated the gene pool.
My motto is "watch what they do not what they say" and Paterno seems to have "done" things just fine over the years.
Joe's da man. Joanne's da man. It's a semi-Mexican standoff.
A shame she didn't shave before the pic was taken.
Joanne Toasti-Vaseline looks like a young Al Bundy with a wig! What are her comments about the three girls who had the bodies chopped off! Huh!
Nice 5 O'Clock shadow that this "babe" is sporting. You can see it even through the make-up/air brush. I wonder if she uses Pinaud Mustache Wax?
she is the mother of one son like Cartmans "mother".
No, but it's ok for Democrat presidents to be accused or rape. These idiot were no where to be found to defend Juanita Broderick or the others who were assaulted by Clinton.
They are griping about JoePa? hit the road, heffer!
Sounds plausible...surely he didn't have to go looking for them...
Well this Joanne Tosti-Vasey woman would do the same thing he did, jump her bones.
A double bagger if I ever saw one.
Well said. When NOW gave Clinton a free grope in the White House, they lost all credibility.
My first thought -- Tootsie.
I don't know, she's kinda hot, don't you think? The dyke glasses and that fine whisp of a mustache just kinda gets my heart pumping.
Aaaack! You broke my monitor!
sorry....the original image is smaller, and I couldn't stop it from expanding upon posting here.
That's one ugly guy, although nice mustache!
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
Sounds about right to me. Like Desiree Washington with Mike Tyson and that filthy slutbag with Kobe Bryant....groupie girls who hang all over sports stars are idiots if they don't think the players assume they want to sleep with them. Why else are they there? To suggest play calls?
If she knocks on my door, I take the Aviators, (they are coming back in style)if non-prescription, slam the door in her face, deadbolt it, then hunt my firearm, lock and load.
What a woof-woof.
With the name Paterno, he was bound to be stalked and jumped on. NOW has lawyer divisive troops on call 24/7 oriented at preselected targets for downfall... pure one sided psych warfare where no one attacked anyone... a typical feminist "cry wolf/rape" racist irresponsible for others method- one incidentaly aimed at abortion and infanticide, and even suicidal selfhate, totaly tunneled and uncaring in the guilts they roboticaly choose
Divisive guilt psychology by NOW which forgets their extortive practices based on emotions. They are trying some pseudo-protective publicity stunt, no doubts, so long they can squeeze "that" through this "victim", pre-divided
Of course NOW is an insentitive racist group itself, based in irresponsibilizing women for others and babies in racism. Paterno thus had a point: women seeing men alone are commiting themselves to responsabilities, and if they are to be independent, then they assume those, if not they make themselves dependent on the man with whatever consequences follow
Kosher selective guilt speech's not cool, false prophetic guilts for evil manipulated actions, false responsibilizing, it's arbitrary and hypocritical. Paterno was merely raising a question on institutions, not labeling anything, unlike NOW's fanatic condemnations
We do not need to be perfect in what we say to everyone nor to any, but we need to assume responsibilities for others, which NOW is refusing to do. We cannot raise guilts on others arbitrarily but free from guilt and burden, the only righteous anger, for there is danger in irresponsible taking of responsibilities in total hypocrisy of taxation (profit conflict of interest in condemnation, and soul selling demand of repent from the famous in such taxation of satanic evil spirit proportion)
There is no deification of man nor woman in such pride worships but pure whoredom of soul and arts/hearts for societal icons
Heart tagging thought control by wicked stone hearts vs salvation while they remain in condemned ways remain the lead
Let's see, we're broadcasting live from Pennsylvania...
it's a beautiful day here in State College! Listen to that crowd! JoePa! JoePa! JoePa! JoePa!
The teams are on the field...N.O.W. lost the toss.
Joe-Pa elects to kick. It's up! Let the games begin!
Who's seventy nine years old and more popular than BEER in this state??? N.O.W., bring it on!
She? just needed to get her name in the news. Who better than one of the greatest role models our country has ever known.
Hey; watch it! I like Weird Al!
Once bitten, twice shy.
Didn't Kate O'Beirne just say that if homely girls had been invited to the prom we wouldn't have feminazis?
This "woman" is beyond homely!
For those inclined to discuss politics of the phone with organizations of this type:
Pennsylvania NOW, Inc .
National Organization for Women
P.O. Box 68 , Bellefonte , PA 16823
Personally I fired off a blistering wedgie of an email just help them feel hated. That seems to be their goal in life.
Also, if you check their website youll find a more recent picture of Joanne Tosti-Vasey. Age has not served her well.
That's a man, BABY (Austin Powers reference)
You got it. Just saw a poll that 70% said his remark was not wrong and 90% saying he should not resign. Stupid to say he should resign. The NOW gang is soooooooo UN now!!!
20,000 women my arse!
Man,even the high school thugs I knew lied better than that.
National Organization of Wildebeests says what NOW? :-)
That pic shows what Rush is fond of saying. Femminism was started to give ugly women better access to mainstream society.
Aw,come on----this is beginning to sound like middle school.
It would be interesting to know where Chamberlain's Polaroid collection is...and even more interesting to know if any now well-known women are in it...
20,000 women my arse!
Man,even the high school thugs I knew lied better than that.
20,000 is a lot of women, yes, but I'd guess that there were many multiple partner nights (and mornings and afternoons and early evenings and ...). After all, the sort of women who throw themselves at professional athletes aren't the sort who are averse to sharing...
Thanks for the reply.The poll numbers tell me that no one listens to them or takes them seriously .Women need a good, strong , CONSISTENT voice and they are not it.
Absolutely. The NOW gang are NOT it. They do not speak for me, the women in my family, my friends. They don't speak for ANYONE but themselves. They are soooooooooooo very bitter. I actually pity them all. They have nothing.
Another women's libber who can't decide which man's name she likes best: her husband's or her father's.
She better back off Paterno. He is a beloved icon at Penn State. No way will they let him resign.
Just the opposite. Paterno will retire any year now and NOW will claim credit.
If he would have said, "put some ice on that," it would have been OK.
And why is this woman's rantings news?
Accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment?
You're guilty until proven innocent.
Or maybe just guilty because you were accused.
I’m all about firing Joe as well, but this kid makes some good points:
As soon as possible!
Sorry guys, but this time I'm putting football ahead of politics.
And btw, I'm also a Buckeye fan...soooooo, go Bucks! Win the national title tonight. The game is two hours away - can't wait!!!
