    It is still using a woman's body part as an insult and it is not necessary at all.  You can change, I know you can!  You can change and decide NOT to insult women to insult men.  Or, if you are not able to do that, don't call yourself a liberal.  OK?  Because for sure you are not a feminist!

    •  BTW: (0+ / 0-)

      I am a lesbian, so I have no idea what your sexual orientation has to do with this discussion.

        the comment I responded to of yours was to a gay man and yet you felt the need to use the term fag and point out calling men girls or women is an insult yet you are offended by the word tittie.

        Are there any mirrors in your house?

        •  So you lied.. (0+ / 0-)

          ...about me talking to a gay man.  That makes you a liar and your point even more worthless.

          I am a lesbian, not that it matters to this discussion.  Sexual orientation has nothing to do with this particular insult to women.

          •  You are exact;y correct (0+ / 0-)

            sexual orientation has nothing to do with anything.

            Why exactly did you bring it up?

            •  Because I was talking about sexism... (0+ / 0-)

              ...and the perjorative "fag" is the same as "girly man" and such.  It references an insult to men who act like women (by having sex with other men), therefore, it is still using women to insult men.  

              Clearly, a LOT of people here on dkos are NOT feminists in any way whatsoever!

                that worked two jobs to raise 4 kids, 2 daughters and four granddaughters yeah I have no interest in womens issues.

                What I actually don't have any interest is is someone that considers a letter more important than the fact my government is not only killing people around the world they are doing everything in their power to make sure that my girls and grandson have less than me

                •  We all have mothers... (0+ / 0-)

                  What does that have to do with your justification for insulting women?  You are saying that is less important than other issues.  Ok, so those are your priorities, and respecting women (more than half of all human beings) is not on your list.  Got it.

                  •  You obviously need to be offended (2+ / 0-)

                    Facts mean nothing to you so I'll exit this conversation and allow you to decide who does and does not care about your pet issue

                    •  Need to be offended? (0+ / 0-)

                      That is the most offensive comment, out of all the offensive comments, on this thread. What "facts" fit with that totally offensive slur?  None that don't involve absolute sexism, that is for sure!  Sounds more like "need a man to...".  How disgusting do you want to be?  Perhaps you need a good woman to teach you how to be a good person.  What, your mother didn't teach you good manners?  Your father?  If they did, you didn't learn a damn thing.

                      Would you say that to a black person who is offended by a racial slur?  Yea, probably.  Thanks for your comment, Rush.

      •  When I told my wife about this (0+ / 0-)

        diary, her first comment was "is she is lesbian"?

        Nailed it!
