    Since so many people, not just at dkos, but all over the "liberal" web, continue to use that offensive term.  Offending women seems to still be ok by "liberals" in too many situations.  But liberals tend to recognize what is offensive to other people... why not recognize what is offensive to women?

    This reminds me of the liberals in the 1960s and '70s who relegated women to the clean up team and never recognized our voices and our rights.  I hoped that was over, but clearly, it is not.

      all about the idiot with the mentality of a babe still on the tit that is being lampooned....not the tit itself  and it is in no way sexual either......

      It's a term from internet history, Atrios iirc and has absolutely nothing to do with women  at all....unless it's a woman displaying the mentality of a WATB........

      And since when is the use of the word tit sexist this some new restriction I hadn't heard of?

      Tell you what, when "dick" is no longer considered an acceptable pejorative, I'll stop using WATB......
