Did anyone see this thread? It's hilarious! [View all]

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10028080064 Someone said they're showing a lot of women's beach volleyball. There followed interesting discussions about the fact that the uniforms showed a lot of skin, and about wicking fabrics and things.

Then someone posted a sarcastic comment about bodies being disgusting and didn't use the "sarcasm" tag. This made all of the usual suspects pour out of the woodword to chastise all those people!!1! who were prudy and being prudish!!!!1!! That went on for a good long time, though thankfully it was punctuated by some intentionally really funny comments by pinboy.

Then a solitary poster said that women's bodies are not for the purpose of ogling.

Well!

They went NUTTY! Again, those who never disappoint opined about how they are men and it's a biological imperative that they should snicker about women's bodies with like-minded men on the internet AND WHY WON'T ALL THOSE PRUDES STOP BEING PRUDY!!!1!!!

Here's my serious question: I actually love to watch them swatting at the mommy-shaped bugs that fly around their heads but that no one else can see. Does that make me a bad person?
