15. it's kind of racist, and kind of sexist
racist isn't exactly right, because you don't mean any harm.

But it's something like racist in that it ascribes something to race that has nothing to do with race. It shortchanges Conyers, and everyone else, including you.

It seems to me like the kind of thought that enters one's head all the time but which turns out not to be very high quality, that doesn't really hold up to much examination, and which should probably be disposed of.

And "cajones" imo is kind of sexist. And worse than being kind of sexist, it's a cliche.
