(CAUTION: SCARY WORDS)

Fuck, screw, piss, shit, crap, penis, cock, balls, ass, crack, tits, shlong, cum...

All offensive because they have to do with sex? They are vulgar? We use slang for intercourse, for the male sexual organ, for ejaculation, for buttocks...

But vagina... Now, when we come to the word "vagina", for some reason, any slang term is considered "sexist".

Why "sexist? Is it taking away power, rights, opportunities from women to use a slang term for a vagina?

P**ssy is no good. C**t is worse. Can we say h**ch? What? Is there any acceptable word other than "vagina"?

I guess I just do not understand why there can be so many slang words for everything else, but that ALONE is the offending one.

I guess it has to do with the Patriarchy or something. Maybe Rape Culture?

just about anywhere.

"Va-jay-jay" is not the same as "c@nt" or "p@ssy."

8. Sure, everything is context dependent.

But the context here is a political discussion board that purports to uphold progressive values such as gender equality.

In the real world, terms like 'slut' and 'bitch' get hurled around all the time, and people have to deal. Ask Sandra Fluke. But it's hardly unreasonable to have higher standards here than we demanded of Rush Limbaugh.

10. No, the context was that it was derogatory towards women and a slur.

Similarly, referring to a woman as "frigid" would also be misogynistic.

And "sex negative" is big fail when it comes to describing people, unless you happen to be their therapist or spouse you have no idea regarding that kind of thing.

16. No, it's the idea that if a woman disagrees with a man on issues like

birth control or prostitution, she's the one who has an attitude problem regarding sex.

Some in our society 'slut-shame' women who resist patriarchal efforts to control their sexuality, just like some try to shame as "sex negative" women who resist patriarchal economic exploitation of their sexuality.

Larry Flynt is every bit the misogynist woman-hater that Limbaugh is.

....but if a sex worker makes a choice to engage in whatever it is she does, then according to many sex negative feminists, she must be manipulated by the patriarchy, and/or incapable of making an informed decision about her life....

Apparently it's okay to control a woman's sexuality, as long as it's not under the banner of the dreaded Patriarchy and instead done by "informed" women.

35. There is no such thing as 'sex negative' feminism.

Being anti-porn (or anti-prostitution) makes a feminist 'sex negative' as much as not liking Grey's Anatomy makes someone 'hospital-negative.'

Note, btw, that very few feminists target their ire for women who participate in the sex industry--rather it's the demand for such stuff that is the problem.

40. No. Sex and porn are different things.

One is part and parcel of the human experience. The other is a commercial product.

I feel sorry for people who can't tell the difference between porn and sex.

And note that no one is talking about banning porn anymore--that ship has sailed.

And, with regard to prostitution, the preferred model is the Swedish one, where the women aren't prosecuted (getting counseling on how to transition out instead) and the men are prosecuted.

I'm sure you're disappointed.

I think it's interesting that you admit sex is part and parcel of the human experience. And yet, a lonely man....a virgin at 45....someone suffering from a disability....who simply longs to be touched by woman once in his life....you would likely dismiss as a fat, ugly loser or a pig.

There are many reason a man would visit a prostitute. It's easy for you dismiss all instances as being something out of a seedy Bangkok rape club trip.

As far as the Swedish model, why not counsel the men as well instead of needless, pointless prosecution?

44. "Johns school" is used in NY for guys who get busted.

It's a joke. They giggle throughout it, etc etc.

I don't favor banning expressive material. Even if it's vile and repulsive. Even if one were motivated to do so, it's difficult to articulate a standard that permits Lady Chatterly's Lover but excludes Ass To Mouth 8.

The sad fellow who can't get laid through no fault of his own hypothetical is right up there with the single mother who needs an AR15 to defend her children.

Hello, it's easier to pay to rent a woman's orifices than it is to invest the time and energy in fostering a relationship. Plus, you don't get to make demands or set the terms if you're not the boss/client.

123. "That ship has sailed" ... No, its still very much central to the agenda. Just downplayed, because

It's a loser.

Yes, extricating the porn from the internet.. Good fucking luck. Porn has DRIVEN the internet from the get go, not to mention technologies like VHS, DVD etc etc.

This bizarre fantasy of getting rid of it; honestly, it is like nothing so much as the anti choice fantasy that they're going to get rid of contraception. And make no mistake, that IS the fantasy. It is all about control.

...but the real agenda is so unpopular, so nuts, the "public" face has to be presented as "reasonable".

Every once in a while, someone in Iceland or the EU gets honest, usually someone who obviously understands little of how the internet actually works. Which brings me to my next question, this constant (and laughable) objection that "no one is suggesting banning it".. (I mean, except for the people who are.)

Say Ugandan lawmakers, as they have, propose horrible anti-gay laws, like this death penalty bullshit. Then someone says "Oh, no one really supports the death penalty for gay people". Yet then they turn around and say something like "I'm so glad Uganda is finally addressing the gay issue".. What sort of reasonable conclusion can be drawn about the principals in that exchange?

...About what they actually DO support, as well as their disingenuousness around pursuing their agenda?

They recognize that sex isn't something one buys, it's something one shares with another human being, or other human beings.

I didn't realize that being pro-porn and pro-prostitution was essential to being in favor of empowering men, according to group rules.

18. you can keep telling yourself that

but it's really just warmed up old-fashioned Western Religious puritanism and sex-guilt, repackaged and reflavored.

That's why Dworkin and MacKinnon so eagerly palled up with Ed Meese against, yes, Larry Flynt. It's not that hard to figure out.

Let me guess; women should be in charge of their sexuality, until they decide to take off their clothes in front of a camera, right? Then it's okay to pillory them, or otherwise imagine that they're suddenly befuddled, helpless, and incapable of making their own damn decisions about their own damn bodies. And somehow the folks with the crazy, pesky notions that consenting adults should ALL be free to make up their own minds, are the bigots and oppressors.

I won't even get into the "yes really means no because patriarchy that's why" crap.

21. Nope. They just disapprove of institutions whose foundation is economic and

social inequality between the genders that provides a mechanism by which men get vagina on demand.

But, go on telling yourself that the average prostitute enters that lifestyle after completing her masters' degree and turning doen jobs as a lawyer or doctor instead of in her mid-teens, and that you and Larry Flynt are the progressive ones who could teach Catherine Mackinnon about what feminism really is.

That you think feminists sit around hating on women who take their clothes off on camera just shows you literally have no idea what their concerns really are.

When in reality it's "how dare anyone question the male right to rent women's orifices like a U-Haul?"

As if there's this vast number of women decide to have sex with 5-20 fat, ugly losers a day because that's such an attractive lifestyle.

As if Ron Paul's extreme libertarianism suddenly becomes true when the question becomes a man's right to get his dick sucked for cash.

So, please spare us the nonsense of the men's rights folks being all about liberating their sisters in the sex industry.

27. I'm sorry.... "men's rights"? What are you on about now?

Maybe if you find a "mens rights" person, you can take it up with them.

Did you wander in here expecting a fight with... I don't know what?


And then there's "libertarianism" waved around like it's dog doo on a stick! (not to mention, "...on demand"... nice use of anti-choice language, there. Whoops!) I think I just hit authoritarian bingo! You know what else is an "extreme libertarian" position? Thinking that consenting adults should be free to smoke pot in their homes, that we shouldn't spend $60 Billion a year on a "drug war" focused on throwing them in prison for it. Ooooooh! Libertarianism! Dog Doo on a stick!

Fucking A Yes, I think consenting adults need the freedom to make their own damn choices, even bad ones. WHOA! OH NO! EXTREEEEEME LIBERTARIANISM!



FREAAAAAK THE FUCK OUT!!!!



Yeah. And I think there is a tremendous amount of judgment and fretting, in some quarters, over what OTHER people do and choose to do. And I think it's driven by fundamental discontent or unhappiness with those folks' own lives.

Sort of how the few anti-choicers I saw lining the march for womens lives in DC in 2004, where I marched with 1.2 Million other Feminists (I hauled my ass across the country to do that.... were you there?), looked like they hadn't had a single satisfactory orgasm among them since 1974. When people are pissed off and unsatisfied, they usually express it by trying to CONTROL THE CONSENTING ADULT BEHAVIOR OF OTHERS.

It's a weird fetish, if you ask me.

Why have minimum wage laws, OSHA regulations, etc when consenting adults can create whatever contract they desire?

50. So that invalidates all arguments which contain the words (eeeew!) "consenting adults"?

Personally, I think that even with something like prostitution, legalization with regulation (regulation meaning things like minimum wage laws) is potentially a more sensible answer than criminalization.

But, mmmmmm, I'm not sure how we got to prostitution. Since we're just gonna throw assorted stuff at the wall to see if it sticks, here, do you think it should be against the law for consenting adults to fuck in front of a camera, and/or for other consenting adults to watch the film of said fucking?

90. I hope you realize

That there are tens of thousands of sex workers in this country who are in fact enslaved. They have no choice whether to sell their bodies. They have no choice where they live, what they do, of anything else. They are owned by others. If one hires a prostitute, there is a good chance that they are helping to finance human trafficking.
They are also forced to be subjects of pornography. More women are currently held in bondage than at any point in human history.


Now please justify slavery to us.

My feeling with Limpballs is that women shouldn't fuck if they are 1) not fucking him and 2) not attractive to him or talking about sex in an "unattractive" way.

But conversely, the sex negative types only want to hear sex talk if it's done in some clinical, formal, or academic way.

24. I suppose that is true for men's genitals too?

I assume then that every time a woman, whether she is lesbian, a rape victim, a rad fem or whatever, EVERYTIME se says that penises are gross or disgusting or make her sick --I suppose you get equally outraged.

Right?

See the thing is... offensive is not the same as sexist nor is it even the same as misogyny.

If a woman says penises are icky, I do not scream and say that she is a man-hater and is trying to hurt all men's feelings.

Especially if she was referring to a penis that is not hygienic. See how you have so easily gone from talking about offensive WORDS to offensive ideas and thoughts without even blinking or realizing it?

People HAVE the right to have opinions that may offend. Maybe they shouldn't say them if they are nice, but it does not make them misogynists and it doesn't threaten to further force women into a subservient social position.

It just BUGGED you. And that's okay. But it isn't sexist.

Unhygienic body parts are nasty as a general rule, armpits etc.

But, assuming that a woman's private parts are unclean with zero evidence to that end, well, he who does that deserves the flak he catches.

It's really not that hard to avoid being offensive in that way.

30. bothersome games

I can understand the notion that pointing out the hypocrisy of any group that displays self-righteous behavior is neccessary (and fun)- hell the Teabaggers are one group using hypocrisy as the main uniting force. What I don't get is the reason for being so precious about the idea that a man's slang term for vaginas can have sexist implications for some feminists. Of course there are deeply rooted issues attached to this particular line of "linguistic critique" in society's treatment of sex organ slang terms. I fail to understand the need for what appears to be manufactured indignation on the part of progressive men over this.
I know lot's of right wing men that are threatened by the very existence of feminist critique- those right wing misogynists know that an outward display of misogyny reveals them for what they are, so they attack the so-called systemic unfairness created by feminism, and point to these types of issues as proof that feminism and women's equality leads to horrible injustices for males.
This just isn't true.
A good man (or woman) will almost always refrain from purposely using offensive rhetorical devices to make his/her point. The PO may be materially correct, but the reason for the implied importance of the PO seems unrelated to the impact of the distinction being made.
Shouldn't progressive men (if that's what they are-DU members OUGHT to be, anyway) choose a more important issue to concentrate on, like disparities in child gaurdianship and support, instead of igniting flames of resentment and discord between DUers and other progressives?
Just an idea from a male feminist, please don't construe this as an attack on notions of fairness and freedom of speech, because it isn't.

Each may be appropriate, given various times and places, but it would never be acceptable to use any of them to talk about another DU member, not here or anywhere else on the site; and a fellow DU member would be the closest analogous person to a "co-worker" under that strained, overused, and totally not relevant analogy.

111. Must be rather difficult for many people to simply avoid using colloquial and vulgar slang

Must be rather difficult for many people to simply avoid using colloquial and vulgar slang, and instead rationalize its use...

112. either that, or adults don't like being scolded like errant preschoolers for R rated talk.

114. Never say I didn't give you anything.

Ironically, after all this, I still have no answer.

115. I told you, you brought Christmas to meta, early.

Trees grow, cats meow, and meta fights over this stuff.

116. Remember..must have been almost a year now

when one of my Men's Group posts got hauled down to Meta because the latest outrage was my use of the term Dworkinite? You told me then something to the effect.."if it wasn't that it would have been something else"..Man, were you ever right, it seems like it's something different at least 3 times a week and always from the same posters...

118. It's educational. For instance, Who knew DU used to have a user named "HootieMcBoob"

I wonder what happened to old Hootie McBoob, anyway.

120. If Hootie was here today..

the username would have been alerted on, with possibly a thread in Meta demanding a PPR to go with it. Sexism aimed at Irish women? Never mind that "boob" has more than one meaning...some DUers seem to believe they can see into the hearts and minds of others. Must be a neat trick.

121. I'd alert on him for his name reminding me vaguely of Hootie and the Blowfish

which is a band better left in the mists of time.

122. All of those are known as objectionable words.


The question is only by who and why.

I think it depends on if the word can be used as an insult, and how deep the cut is when it's used in that way. Nobody would call a woman a p*ssy, but it's a big insult to call her a c*nt. Why? Complex psychological reasons. A lot has to do with the sound of the words and the metaphors and pictures evoked. "P*ssy" says soft consensual sex. C*nt says hard sex or rape.

Now calling a man either of those is a huge insult. Now, if women would object to those words, why would a man feel a deeper insult from being called a p*ssy than being called a d*ck?

126. now there are actual pictures of actual boobs in GD, which were not hidden by a jury, even.

That sound you hear is the sound of heads 'asplodin'.
