    To say progressives are as misogynist as RWNJ is an Ann Coulter talking point.  No one looking objectively at the records and results of both sides could possibly say in good faith that they are equivalent.

    As a 54 year old woman, former bra burner and feminist hell-raiser, I agree sometimes a crazy bitch just needs to be called a crazy bitch.   Or maybe beyiotch so as not to offend those who worry that the continuing general, prolific, and culturally accepted use of the epithet "bitch" will somehow harm the frailest among us.

    Soil that is dirty grows the countless things. Water that is clear has no fish. Thus as a mature person you properly include and retain a measure of grime. You can’t just go along enjoying your own private purity and restraint. (Robert Aitken trans.)

    Think about it.

    Which side are you on?

    •  I see the "B" word and A$$hole as... (4+ / 0-)

      ...gender versions of the same pejorative.

      The gender part doesn't matter.

      I don't remember ever hearing a woman called an a$$hole. But the behavior and attitude behind either a man or a woman who gets these epithets pointed at them is virtually the same. The gender part just doesn't matter, at least in my world.

      The "c" word on the other hand, used as a pejorative, is purely misogynistic.

      The PC stuff gets out of hand, because it muddies the waters and allows actual bad guys to try and excuse their behavior by blaming PC stuff...

      But maybe I'm just an a$$hole...

      One final note. I'm no fan, in any sense of Hillary. But when FOXNews drones call her the "b" word, it makes me like her more. It means, no matter how they spin it, they have a grudging respect for her.

      When they use the "c" word; anger and contempt is all I have for them.

      Language. Ain't it a bitch?

          It was specifically directed at one person.

          But I'll be sure to let my wife know that calling someone a bitch means I'm a misogynist..I'm sure she'll get a kick out of that.

          This place gets more pathetic every day.
