    I think most of us know that I don't have a whole lot of concern for the idea of people getting offended but, at the very least, if you throw out terms like "slutty" and "whore", you're damn crazy if you don'y expect backlash.

    Remember...no one can EVER say anything about anyone without being labeled sexist/racist/homophobic...even if what they said is true. No matter what you say or how you say it,someone will get butt-hurt about it and make a stink(and in the process,draw attention to themselves,which is probably what they were after all along). Just say what you want to say and then IGNORE whatever the hell kind of stink it causes and move on.

    Wait, I just spotted the greatest affront of all in this - someone referred to Graeme McMillan as a 'proper journalist'

    That "debate" went on far too long. And to be honest it took a while for me to realise what the hell was going on.

    I just think there's bigger more blatant feminist issues out there to put the time, effort and passion into. You have to fell the tree before getting all the roots out of the ground.

    So... does that also mean that no one can be critical of your actions or words? You gotta lay down the rules here very clearly. I mean, by your own point of view you're getting "butt-hurt" because someone is calling you names. But in a perfect world, no one "should" ever get "butt hurt" right?

    Pass.
    You talking about other people being insecure after that face palm inducing bit of cringe worthy stupidity is truly remarkable. Apparently stupidity doesn't run in your family, it gallops.

    While I agree that thing are blown way out of proportion, this isn't why. If I post a sign in my front yard, it's me making the statement. Whether or not I made the sign doesn't matter. If you don't want to be connected to the entire contents of the sign, don't post the sign.

    He never personally used the term "whores" the meme had it in it but Dirk never said whores. Reread the whole thing before "responding"

    I find the derogatory/dismissive use of "whore" by both parties a bit irritating. It's a job. Often a dangerous and disgusting one. (As are a lot of other jobs.) Try not to use it as shorthand for "person deserving of no respect", either in the way you use it, or in the way you interpret it.

    Regardless... Dirk & Jennifer: heart you both.
