(Before we get started, go here and also here to see examples of the sexism in question.)

More than likely, we've all seen it, the unflattering picture of Ann Coulter beside an equally unflattering picture of an Afghan Hound, running full tilt toward the photographer, mouth gaping, teeth showing, tongue lolling...

Well, this last time, I took action, as we can here on DU:

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

YOUR COMMENTS:

Must we repeatedly view this sexist post about Ann Coulter's looks? Is this germane? Or, does this fit in the 'boys will be boys' category of "can't you take a joke"? Sexism is bigoted hate speech and should be unacceptable in DU.


Here are the results:

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Thu Aug 9, 2012, 10:27 AM, and voted 1-5 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I don't know what the alerter is thinking, but THIS IS NOT SEXIST!
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: over the top.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Can't stand the heat? Get out of the kitchen.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: alerter should find a better hobby
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given

Thank you.


I wonder if this warrants a new acronym: "SIOKIYAD" (Sexism Is OK If You're A Democrat)?
