Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

On "prick", "dickhead", and other misogynistic language ... [View all]

Well, I'm a 61 year old white male, and I cannot recall a single instance when I was ever denied one fucking thing because of my gender.
I say this as one who is fairly close to a free speech absolutist; but perhaps those who HAVE been held back with regard to little things like the right to vote, the right to control their own reproductive freedom, and the right to receive equal pay for equal work might be allowed a little bit of leeway in determining which words are more hurtful, if not in the real world, at least in the context of a progressive internet message board.
Of course, that's just one man's opinion.
