    But I never said it was the only way. If someone chooses not to use the word "pussy"...that is their choice. More power to them. But I am sorry, "pussy" isn't as specifically directed at woman as you and others claim. It can also mean cat.

    And as I use it, it means wimp as well. Woman have no devine right to the word. Its not theirs. I use it to convey wimp. It has taken on that meaning on its own just as much if not more so than it means vagina or cat.

    Look it up in the dictionary. I just did. Meriam-Webster gives three separate main definitions....1.) a feline or cat 2.) the female body part connotation 3.) as an adjective.

    Its somewhat of a slang-term now isn't it? And while the term may have originally started out as a reference to female body parts, it clearly has taken on a life of its own. It has its own meaning. And lets face it, pussy is just slang for the female body part anyways, its not the true word for it. Why is one definition more important than the others?

    I don't think it is and I think some see offense where there is none.

      "its diaries like this which give liberals a bad name"

      So, I guess susanw shouldn't have written this diary?

      ""pussy" isn't as specifically directed at woman ... It can also mean cat."

      So when you call Bush a pussy, you mean he is like a cat? No, I believe you mean he is weak, like a woman

      "certain racial epithets are out of line... But it is different. Cunt ... is used ... to express the same feelings (as) asshole"

      ???

      And as far as homer's "kike" vs. "pussy" analogy, I think kike is almost obsolete, I rarely see it and almost never hear it. But isn't it true that democrats/liberals/intellectuals are sometimes insulted or implied to be "jews" by anti-semitic right-wingers? I'm sure I could google a few examples.

      I certainly hear the word "nigger" used to insult people who are not black, is that only insulting to the immediate target of the insult, or is it more generally derogatory?

        Those are your words, not mine. I mean he is weak. But not like a woman. Guess your the one who has that in his head. Can there not be weak, wimpy men in your mind? There can in mine.

          So, when you use words, you are talking to yourself? It doesn't matter how other people perceive those words? No, I didn't think so...

          Go ahead, keep talking to that "weak, wimpy man" in your own mind. I'll just try and ignore you

          •  I think I know... (2.33)
            How the word is perceived. I think you do too. Its not, in most people's mind, a slur at women nor anything that comes to mind logically when its used, despite theoretical discussions on here.

            And those were your words, not mine. Which I find interesting.
