Silent Bob Speaks!

Surprisingly, you don't even have to know and love your very own snuggly Hlogger to be a pro-feminism hockey fan.... as the one and only Silent Bob proves.

In his blog, Devils fan Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob) calls for action from within Rangers Nation, saying
"In an effort to diminish a team they despise, some Rangers’ fans’ idea of an insult is to call the Devils women. It’s as if the worst slander they can imagine is equating the black and red with the distaff. Ladies, I don’t know about you, but I (and every Devils fan) find that notion repugnant beyond words."

He then goes on to request that the women of Rangers fandom withhold sex until this "rampant hate-speech" is curbed.

If there was ever a candidate for a male Hlogger, I think we've found him.

Kevin Smith is the freaking MAN. Not just because of this, but just in all that he does.

My only problem with Silent Bob is that he's a Devils fan.

This, though, was just as fantastic as everything else he's put together!

I take that last sentence personally.

Hmmm...I have yet to hear a Ranger fan say anything like that, but I don't doubt that it happened.

While I'm glad he stood up for us as a gender, I'd like to emphasize that he stated SOME Ranger fans, hopefully to avoid generalizing.

You can rest assured that if I ever heard anyone try to use that as an insult, regardless of the context, I'd be all over them, Ranger fans included.
