Men's Health yanks condescending article on how to talk to women about sports

Men's Health has offered up a fine example of how not to talk about how to talk to women about sports.

The magazine deleted a short article entitled "The Secret to Talking Sports with Any Woman" after critics lambasted it for portraying women as uninterested and incapable of truly understanding sports. (The reason why women don't "share your passion for sports," according to the magazine: "They need story lines.")

After yanking the offending article, the magazine apologized on Twitter, saying the piece was not "meant to suggest that women are in any way inferior to men," but that it had "missed the mark and the negative feedback is justified." --Jon Terbush
