    ...for women.  Even by some women, which is really pathetic, but not unusual.  I get that a LOT of liberals aren't really feminists, they just pretend to be.  But this discussion has gotten nasty toward me, personally, and is as much an ad hominem attack on me as Rush did to Sandra Fluke.  Your attacks on me prove you have nothing substantive to offer to the issue.  (Look up logical fallacies, ok?)

    Jeff, I can see that you try, and at least you are mostly polite, an exception to some others.  But  calling my issue "trivial" is what men have said about women for centuries, so it doesn't work.

      I don't think that word means what you think it means.
      An ad hom means someone attacks you personally, rather than addressing the argument at hand.
      Really, if these snarky comments upset you so much, admit you're losing the argument and move on.

      Your beliefs don't make you a better person. Your behavior does.
