Should a female pro-RKBA advocate be subjected to terms like "gun-humper"? [View all]

Okay, granted, males shouldn't be subjected to any sort of name calling either but I find the imagery the term is supposed to conjure WRT females to be degrading and foul in the extreme.

I respectfully ask the pro-control side to refrain from using the term. All in favor, say, "Aye."
