    We're still slowly coming to realize that sexist slurs aren't actually maybe great things to normalize. ('Bitch', and of course the subtler ones, are still seen relatively frequently here, and of course making fun of Republican women because of their appearance is quite common in the comments.) Interestingly, most of the homophobia is gone, but the sexism remains.

    Maybe when we've internalized that, and started on able-ism, we can work on 'moron', 'idiot', 'imbecile', 'stupid', and so forth.
