(CNN) -- Of the two of us, Linda is the fan of professional football. And every football fan realizes football games are extremely violent. We are both also feminists. And every feminist knows the women's movement denounces all forms of violence. For a woman who is a football fan, this can be hard to reconcile.
So it was surprising to turn on the TV and find these opposing mindsets coexisting on the football field: Tough, hyper-masculine football players were wearing pink, a color associated with women and girls, femininity -- and sometimes vulnerability -- and also widely known to represent breast cancer.

PITTSBURGH, PA (Oct. 20, 2014) Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter and Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto issued a joint statement today on provisions added to HB 80 to increase the vulnerability of cities and other localities to lawsuits by pro-gun advocates.

Chryst, Panthers looking forward to playing again as they prepare for Ga. Tech
Three days after their huge victory vs. Virginia Tech, the Pitt Panthers (4-3, 2-1 ACC) have now set their sights on another ACC foe in the Georgia Tech Yellowjackets (5-2, 2-2 ACC) in another must-win game. At his weekly news conference, head Coach Paul Chryst gave a quick summary of where the team stands this week. "I was proud of the effort of the guys on Thursday night." Said Chryst "I'm looking forward to playing again. It seems like we've had a little bit of time off. We came in Friday. On Saturday and Sunday they were off. I'm looking forward to getting ready to play a good Georgia Tech team. Certainly, it's a different preparation for our defense. The guys that played last year are familiar with both Navy and Georgia Tech. But then we've got some guys that weren't as involved last year, so we've got to have a great week of preparation. Our offense against their defense, [presents] enough different things that the preparation will be big this week. But we're looking forward to it."
