I might be a lot of things, but I'm not sexist and I'm not racist.
Everyone is sexist and racist and nationalistic and speciesist and classist sometimes, even when they try their damnedest not to be. The answer, if you really are striving not to be, when someone accuses you of one of those, is not a heated denial but an actual examination. If, after that, you think they're still full of shit, fine. But I don't think you've read a thing I've said.
Bread and circus and penis-waving.
Merc, I shouldn't have to explain the sexist connotations of CV Rick's post that you quoted. If you manly men have to chest-thump about sports, you can do it without using negative feminine stereotypes as an insult.
I didn't find anything sexist in it at all. I think you are reading way more into it than needs to be. However, I see that it is alright for you to be sexist.
See, Merc, I'm perfectly willing to admit that I made a sexist remark. I was trying to use it illustratively, but it was still wrong of me. However, I take solace in the reality that most men will never hear somebody tell them, "You think there aren't enough men in mathematics because of centuries of oppression? Why don't you go home and chest thump
What the fuck? Are you stoned? Really? "I did it on purpose to prove a point"? Come on, get real. You said it yourself. Everyone is sexist and racist. Really?
You don't have a clue. Hey, if you're racist, that's cool. Whatever gets you off. Really. But let me tell you. You have no clue who you are talking to. Yeah, I was a real racist piece of shit in the past. I've never admitted to not being so. But after many years I've really gone 180 on it. You don't even know racist. Tell me, how many white power organizations have you gave money to? None? Try 3. Yep. That's right. I used to be a real sympathizer. But don't dare try to tell me what I am or am not. You have no clue what it is like to be in the reddest county in the reddest state in the nation and try to have a civil conversation regarding race while trying to explain what is wrong with racism.
Sexist? Oh fuck yes. Mormonism will do that too you along with general upbringing, especially one like I had. But sexist connotation in this last exchange? Not even. The only sexist thing thrown out there was by YOU.
So what? Now Godforfuckingbid that it should come out in a conversation? Wait, wait, wait. That's right. CVRick gets his pee-pee slapped over something that wasn't there. Jesus, np. I'm sorry, but that was a real leap on your part. A jumping of the shark type leap. Coupled with the weak "I did it to prove a point" bit is really lame. Like, lame.
