    in reference to my post.  

    My point was that if you want to get the word out on a miscarriage of justice, to as many people as possible, you might not want to alienate readers by using a word that many find derogatory.  Especially when it's not necessary to the story or event you are discussing.  To do so simply because "I feel like it" works against the whole reason for the diary.  

    I'm offended by the judge's ruling in this case, but I almost didn't read the entire diary because I was first offended by the writer's use of the word "tits."  I don't think that makes me a female mysogynist.
