38. This thread documents examples of degrading posts
Edited on Tue Jun-21-05 11:05 AM by omega minimo
Posts degrading to women and to the men who disrespect; degrading DU's potential for discussion and violating DU rules.

Posts that provide examples of what we deal with and object to; examples that show how language segregates and excludes "The Other"-- in this case, women.

Posts that show how casually the bigotry against women is still delivered, when other means of bigotry would be yanked in an instant or never posted.

This is to bear witness, not to identify or blame. Maybe we can all learn sumthin.

I inadvertantly included a screen name that appeared as part of a post. The person replied here and the exchange was reasonable.

There are a lot more important issues today, it would seem. If sexism remains unaddressed, it will continue to impede progress on those issues. If it smacks women and cool men in the eyeballs on DU, we lose interest and go away.

Dems need us.
