Is dadahead a misogynist?
Regarding my earlier post on Peggy Noonan, Stacy writes:
There are so many ways (and reasons) to bash on Peggy Noonan (and LG, for that matter, though she is far, far less important). Stooping to calling someone a cunt is not only intellectually evasive (it tells me nothing about why you revile her), but its abuses something that she can't change and has no control over - her gender - instead of focusing on what she can do.Point taken. I in no way intended my remarks to be a slam on Ms. Noonan's gender.
The post was supposed to be about someone else thinking with his penis, but your post made it seem like that someone was you.
When I use the word "cunt", I generally do not do so with someone's gender in mind. I often refer to men as cunts as well. In fact, here is a list of male cunts:
Jonathan Safran Foer
Ann Coulter (gender status undetermined)
(note: list is decidedly not comprehensive.)
However, Stacy makes a very good point. I do not in any way wish to be associated with those who would relegate women to the status of second-class citizen. Thus in the future I will make it a point to avoid the kind of language that might give that impression, and apologize to all who were offended.
