The sports world has been overtaken by political correctness.
Athletes who step out of line run the risk of being “canceled.”
And a former NFL MVP made one statement that left-liberals furious.
Former NFL Most Valuable Player Cam Newton just made an enemy of the progressive left.
Newton appeared on the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast and he made a comment about modern women that set the internet on fire.
Newton said, “I had a perfect, a perfect example of what a man was in my life by my father. My parents have been together for 36, 37 years now, and it’s a beautiful thing…I grew up in a three-parent household. My mom, my father, and my grandmother. And I knew what a woman was. Not a bad b*tch…A ‘bad b*tch’ is a person who’s just, you know, ‘Girl, I’m a bad b*tch. I’m doing this, I’m doing that. I look the part, but I don’t act the part.’”
Newton clumsily juxtaposed the traditional family environment he grew up in with the modern relationship dynamics that have been radically changed by second and third-wave feminism; modern feminism has de-emphasized and even demonized traditional gender roles.
Newton added, “There’s a lot of women who are bad b*tches. And I say ‘b*tches’ in a way not to degrade a woman but just to go off the aesthetic of what they deem is a boss chick…Now a woman for me is handling your own but knowing how to cater to a man’s needs…And I think a lot of times when you get that aesthetic of ‘I’m a boss b*tch, Imma this, Imma that.’ No baby! But you can’t cook. You don’t know when to be quiet! You don’t know how to allow a man to lead.”
NFL quarterback Cam Newton complained about women who "can't cook" and "don’t know when to be quiet."

Liberal commentators said Newton’s views were “astounding” and “stuck in the past,” but it seems as though Newton came to his conclusions after growing weary of current relationship norms.
“While Newton may hail from a successful, traditional family unit, he hasn’t duplicated that in his own personal life. While his parents were together for 37 years, Newton has four children with a former girlfriend, Kia Proctor. The pair split when he fathered a child with another woman while Proctor was pregnant.”
Newton himself is a product of the modern relationship chaos and now at 32 years old, he yearns for what his parents have.
Newton did not articulate his point well, but he was making an argument for traditional family roles where man and woman complement each other, not compete for relationship supremacy.
