Re: “Proposed Shakespeare Giant Eagle shopping center gets a rocky rollout

You are a pompous snobbish ass. If you are such critic of any land owner who wants to do with their own property then purchase the land and do with it what you will.

Re: “Planning Commission is demanding better architecture for the Strip District

...and the best way to achieve compromise is to find common ground to stand on, together, to move towards a greater goal both parties share.
It can be vague -as long as its a common goal.

Id offer:
A better Strip District, a better Pittsburgh.

The style of criticism in this article immediately casts the parties into adversarial roles. It is polarizing and does not serve to promote a positive process or positive outcome.
Forcing one side into a defensive posture through insult and derogatory comments is not constructive. It is divisive.

There are real criticisms that should be brought up and discussed. They will fall on deaf ears or be deflected as volleys in an on going attack.

Demanding submission through inflammatory rhetoric and shaming does not prepare the ground for fruitful discussion.
It digs trenches.

Re: “Andy Warhol, Roberto Clemente, and others tower over Downtown for We Are Pittsburgh public art project

If these are mostly brilliant folks, who managed to get out, develop their potential and have their capabilities appreciated, by openminded, less inbred hammerheaded, brainwashed substance abusing folks? Where's McKee, Girty, the Montours, Thayendanegea and Degonwadanti?

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

You missed the important point!
Those purses will not meet the criteria for security checks!
Love those Pieroghis!

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

I'm a feminist and I honestly did not ever notice that any of the pierogis had purses but this is possibly because by the time the pierogi race starts I'm already pretty drunk.

I have no opinion about pierogis. The only reason to go to a pirate's game is for the view and to drink in the parking lot before the game like a true yinzer. Just here expressing solidarity for the writer.

Imagine if all these outraged people about a pierogie article cared enough about shit to vote in primary elections.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

I'm a feminist and this is the most ridiculous article I've read in a very long time. Not sure what's worse - that someone took the time to write it or that a publisher decided it was worth publishing.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Perhaps the author of this tripe would be more comfortable if the female Pierogi's were tattoo'd and pierced tramps.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Couldn't agree more, this article is pathetic. Lets "stir the pot" for an issue that doesn't exist. Next, the race will be removed, kids (and grown-ups) will be saddened, all because of one idiots opinion. Next it will be, why is "The Captain" from captain crunch a man?

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Really???? Giving jewelry and a purse shows how unprepared a woman is to take on a sport??? A pierogie race is a sport??? Just enjoy the entertainment value of it !
Let it go, let it go....

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

As a woman, who has never commented on an article in her life (and this will be my last), this is the biggest waste of a reading. There are bigger fish to fry than to worry about what a walking pierogi is carrying at a baseball game. If you are offended by a made up character (for solely entertainment) then you need tougher skin and perhaps never leave the house. Just a thought because this is ridiculous.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

For all of you voicing your opinion that it is a stupid article, just remember that her job is to get you to respond. And judging by the number of responses, she did a pretty good job.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

the author of this article clearly wasn't taking this topic as seriously as any of the outraged men commenting on it. you all seem very threatened by a women humorously drawing attention to the absurdity of the gendered portrayal of pierogies. take a seat.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Wow. Just wow. This is what our world has become... you want to know why the management/employees of the Pirates didnt get back to you with a comment? Its because they dont have time for stupid. You are clearly delusional and need to get help.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Why do you make the assumption that the pierogies that have purses identify as female? You need to rethink your whole article.

Re: “Why do the female pierogi racers have purses?

Really, mistreatment in professional sports? Missi Matthews, Suzi Kolber, and the trainer for the Steelers might disagree with you. So would Amy Lawrence, one of the premier analysts in sports media today. And because someone in a fake costume for a ballpark gag has a purse, you took up this much column space. You must be a thrill at dinner parties. Conversational minefield I'm betting.
