21. I hope you're not referring to the OP

because I have observed him to be very cool on gender issues.

22. I was not, although

his choice of subject here seems to reflect a cultural tone-deafness and a somewhat less "cool"

attitude to gender issues.

27. At least he didn't write it out in the title of an OP

so that when we look into a group that is supposed to be a safe haven for feminists we are slapped in the face with the most offensive word in the English language to refer to women.

28. He seems to have no problem with the word and finds it fine to use and not bigoted at all

he seems to agree that in the UK and Australia, it's ok because culture. (Same nonsensical excuse used by those who used to fight to defend using 'gay' and 'retarded' as insults.)

Seeing offensive words written out by those who are discussing why they are offensive does not bother me as much as those who fight to maintain their social acceptability.

3. LOL, OK now I see that pinto wasn't just taking shit.

I thought it was more of a general accusation as it usually is.

Just so you know, this kind of post is frowned upon. This is not what groups are intended for.

I got a hide for daring to refer to Steven leser's campaign to get me PPRd for saying that MRA talking points were posted on DU. Bogus hide (of course). Still worth it.

AUTOMATED MESSAGE: Results of your Jury Service
On Fri May 16, 2014, 09:43 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

LOL, OK now I see that pinto wasn't just taking shit.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1255&pid=43447

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

She's calling out two DUers and doubling down on her hidden post. She even admits that this is not what groups are for, yet she does it. Repeating hidden posts should be hidden, as should these call-outs, which aren't true btw. She provides no links to back up her accusations - because she can't.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri May 16, 2014, 09:49 AM, and the Jury voted 0-7 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I disagree about what alerter is trying to read (the mind of the author) into this post. My take is that she is simply saying that the groups are not intended to organize attacks against other DUers.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Tough.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Just leave the HoF group alone if they bother you, ffs, alerter.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Not how I interpret her post. So, I don't see a reason to hide it.
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given

5. 0-7... nice

The alerter is right that I can't post links to show steven's little campaign, because he pulled that shit in meta.

Oh and alerter - its the 'rally the troops' type posts that are a no no... not discussing posts elsewhere ... hope that helps!

I wish I could say I was surprised.

Misogynist slurs seem to be something a sadly loud minority of DUers need very badly to defend. Its pathetic really.

Not only are women under constant barrage on DU these days, any threads concerning women's issues scroll off the page at warp speed. It's truly discouraging.

through a jury process if it was deleted before the jury was done. You won't get an email about it either.

23. This is getting tiresome, but this thread did not come about as an attempt to "discuss" anything

It's purpose was to find find humor in the use of a gender slur, e.g Use of the word "cunt" for laughs.


Hint: It's easy to remain non-outraged when the target of the slur is not you or your body.

24. Their laughably hyperbolic overreaction is the result of their desperate need

to ensure that these oppressive misogynist slurs do not become socially unacceptable, as happened to 'gay' and 'retarded'.

They also go into fits of hyperbole if anyone tries to tell them that 'bitch' is an oppressive, bigoted slur.

It's pathological. It really is.

or perhaps I should say their briefs.

Some are actually reaching back to the seventies and eighties to reference the regional, little used 'bitchin'"

in American vernacular.

30. Gee, Grumps, it looks like you went through a lot of trouble..

to prove so little, lol.

Before you belabor yourself again, you should note

that, whatever it's popularity, "bitching" as a

positive adjective is NOTHING like using the noun "bitch"

as a negative, demeaning synonym for "woman".

You may catch up someday, bro..Don't worry

Using misogynistic internalized popular slang to prove a non-point is a waste of effort.
