    I wish people would put 1/4 of the energy into political change that they put into defending their right to use language that alienates a huge portion of the population.

    If this argument had been about "n**" or certain other words, we wouldn't even be having this conversation.  I am astounded that "pussy" slips by so uncritically.  I'd like to remind the men who keep hemming and haawing about PC language that we are trying to build a political base that is welcoming to people, and as such the language we use is critical.  And what the democrats learned in 2004 what that they can no longer easily rely on single women as a voting bloc.  Shouldn't we be doing everything in our power to embrace women instead of alienating them?
