Response to boston bean (Reply #28)

44. I read the AA Group quite a bit...

Some of the things I have seen there are mind blowing. In some ways the slurs against women are worse in that if someone uses a slur against a woman it's no big deal. Women are too sensitive and thin skinned they are told in many cases. This thing with Skip has really has shown how acceptable it is to use vulgar slurs against women. I might differ with you on how I think that should be handled, but I agree with you on how serious it is. We wouldn't sit back and let someone talk like that to a POC or any other ethnic minority, a child, a disabled person, or someone who had a mental illness. So, why should we just let it roll off our backs when someone says something like that to a woman or about a woman? I think we should not. Anyway, my point is I do understand that the women of DU aren't making things up, I have seen it in GD and other places, I have seen it when I visit the feminists forums and AA like I mentioned before.

BTW, I don't really want Skip back. He supports Bernie like I do. But, like I always say with friends like that who needs enemies.
