Response to the_working_poor (Original post)

17. It's perfectly acceptable to insult men all the time.

And it happens right here on DU, quite frequently. And yes, women are the ones often making the slur. Just as often as other men.

The constant reference to the (theoretical) small size of a man's penis. Not based on any evidence, because he own a gun, or drives a big, expensive car or truck, or buys or owns something which is viewed as an ostentatious display of wealth by others. In other words men are constantly accused of being deficient in their manhood and sexuality because certain people don't like certain male's purchases and / or behavior. Despite being also "constantly" being told by women that penis size really does not matter to women.

The same type of comment is almost never made about the size of a women's breasts or the size of her genitals. The closest that it comes, is calling a woman the dreaded "C" word. And THAT provokes howls out outrage.

So "Yes, is it perfectly okay to insult some people and not others."
