    but you are being absolutely unfair with respect to "dick." It was Markos's word; not one that I regularly use. If you find it problematic, I invite you to write a diary on the subject.

    Oh, and have a nice day.

    Ok, so I read the polls.

    •  Dude, what? (0+ / 0-)

      You want to swing the word "dick" around, and then hide behind Markos when someone points out it's offensive?  

      When you say it's not "dickishness" but some other implicit attitude, and then you run from your own choice to double-down on kos' metaphor, its says to me that you implicitly know the word is offensive on some level; and that while you'll use it to shame other people, you don't want to be accountable for your own use of it.

      If that's not pussy, then I don't know what is.  

      Look homie.  I'm not offended in the slightest by the use of any of these words.  I just don't like people who only see the bullshit on one side, and I especially don't like people who run from their own use of offensive language or defend it (as if whatever word or words aren't offensive when you use them 'cause you're "right")  while calling other people out for whatever "attitude" they have.

      You're an adult, no?  If you're going to use words like that, then fucking own it.  And as far as I'm concerned, I don't give a fuck what you think of someone else's attitude when practically everyone here has broken a rule or two at some point.  Why don't you talk about when you fucked up.  That'd be far more radical and honest.
