1. Dingbat is clearly offensive to women!
dingbat - a term used to describe a person (often a woman) who does not think before acting and most times acts on pure impulse.
Some start off intellectually or emotionally retarted which eventually leads to being a dingbat. Others are born that way and are cursed with being a dingbat for life.


- urbandictionary.com

Quick, let's ban it, because as we all know - Liberals hate free speech!

:D

It's not their fault they make the "ding" sound. They aren't asking to be hit from the inside with a miniature wrecking ball tied to a string.

5. Dingbat is like the word 'nigger'.
Because I say so. So ban it immediately.
