    the phrase "dicking around" is offensive? It's the same thing, yet I have never seen anyone complain about it.

    •  I'm not sure it is the same. (0+ / 0-)

      Now if you call a guy a 'dickhead', that has a closer correlation.  You're saying he's just clueless and 'thinks with his dick, not his brain'.

      But the general implication with calling guys pussies is that they're not being, well, men.  You're calling them women, and implying there's something wrong with being a woman.

      So the opposite, I guess, would be calling women 'dicks', which would imply there's something wrong with being male, and would, presumably, be offensive.

      You've got your dick and pussy combined.  It's the daily double of offense.
