Response to 11 Bravo (Reply #23)

50. yes, frequently

A couple months back someone had a name this caption thread and referred to some conservative woman--Bachmann, I think---as a "sl..t." People continually refer to conservative women or Hillary Clinton as "b...h," and it remains. I recall someone insulting a victim of sexual assault by using a quote from Marion Barry "The b...h" set me up." A jury allowed that to stand. Below someone posts jury results of the use of the c word not being hidden. Another poster in this subthread is evidently still irked that anyone would suggest there is anything wrong with insulting a fellow DUer as an "attention w.....e." His original response to my PM he posts below was not to bother replying to me but to post in a group from which I am banned and then say something to the effect of if my uncle Bob had "boobs" he would be woman. In other words, it's okay to call women anything one wants, because after all we are only women. If uncle Bob were a woman, you could insult him too. Sexist terms are accepted as normal among far too many, which speaks to the extent to which misogyny is ingrained in American culture.

I recall you yourself posting about a jury verdict in ATA that you found troubling, so you must have some awareness of this.

If you want to examine the use of any of the words above, simply enter one of them in the DU search bar.
