    i understand the problem there.

    like men calling each other the C word

    i agree both those usages demean women and serve no other purpose.

    they only demean men if I agree that there is something wrong with being compared to a woman, but that is another argument altogether.

    Can you understand that?  Do you even care?
    Yes, and yes.

    but the T in WATB does not apply to the PERSON being called a WATB, and I still don't see how the T in WATB demeans men.

    i was annoyed by the word tits in another serious diary today that was only used for shock value.

    but you cannot persuade me that the term WATB demeans men or further demeans men or demeans men by using a pejorative for women's breasts.

    now, if you were saying that WATB demeaned women because you object to slang terms for breasts, I would take this more seriously.

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

    •  That's exactly what I was saying (0+ / 0-)

      It is the fact that the word "titties" is used, and that's all.  That word adds nothing to the insult to (mostly men) but to demean women's bodies and our natural functions.  It isn't necessary.  It's just a little sexist add-on for no other purpose.  

      Thanks for (at least partially) understanding.
