2. I saw that and was completely shocked.

It's as if they never heard of Gamergate, and the techbro culture. How this is remotely equivalent in anyone's mind is mystifying to me.

4. CNN just reported that Hillary is going after Trump while Sanders is *still* going after her!

This meme came to mind:

6. I agree...

...in what world is the word hag seen as negatively as the word bro? It's so disingenuous to make that claim.

7. Per Merriam-Webster....

1
: an ugly, slatternly, or evil-looking old woman

2
archaic a : a female demon b : an evil or frightening spirit : hobgoblin

3
: witch

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/hag
---------------------------------


Simple Definition of bro

—used as a friendly way of addressing a man or boy

Full Definition of bro

plural bros

1
: brother 1

2
: soul brother —often used informally as a term of address

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bro
---------------------------------------


In what reality-challenged universe can those two terms be considered comparably offensive?

10. I don't know the age of the person who made the "hag" comparision

but I'm going to guess (hope) it's someone who's young enough that he or she completely lacks the context in which the word "hag" has been used in literature.

I find many millennials to be very smart, but because of the way they've been educated "to the test" since No Child Left Behind, they are emerging from school unable to put a context to anything. They haven't had to, and have actually been actually educated not to, because they are searching for the right answer all the time.

There isn't always one right answer. There isn't always a direct comparison.

I can't wait for this primary to end...

9. That's like...

...saying "w**re" is equivalent to "stud".

This women-hating is endless, sheez.
