The "C" word and women........
Today though, I'm not really out to write about Malkin's peculiar politics....I'll save that for a another day when I'm more up to it. However after posting about her the other day, I went back and looked at the responses to her article on the Republican authored Schiavo memo.
As you might guess she got a flurry of comments on other blogs:
"Michelle Malkin is a c**t.

There is about six more posts just like that till one wag points out:
"Check your talking points, dude. The Official Left-wing Anti-Malkin punch-word is "whore."Posted by: Once a dem on April 7, 2005 at 11:21 AM PERMALINK"
Either way its harsh and not the right way to bring someone like Malkin down to size. As another commenter points out:
"Nice hostile - thanks for elevating the discussion. I prefer to think of Malkin more accurately as profoundly disturbed. And incapable of rational thought. Oh, and racist, oddly enough, even against he own race, which takes a particularly sad strain of self hatred, I guess. Let's be precise in our criticism, shall we?"
Now that's more reasoned and more polite.
Ever notice however, when women argue they have a certain code words they use? They will call another woman "stuck up" , or "immature" to start with. Then if the argument continues they may call another woman a "bitch" or even a "tramp". As in, " She is such a tramp" ( Really? Can I have her phone number?).
They may even use the S word......"She's such a slut". "You dress like a slut".
In certain uses, the term slut or whore can even be complimentary. I'm not sure how, but I've seen women do it. " I'm going to surprise my boyfriend tonight.....and act like a whore." ( And if he does not like it, call me eh?).
But you NEVER, EVER, will hear the C word unless a woman really wants to slam another woman. Even men don't use that term (much...). Its a totally derogatory term. Its the WMD of slang words. Especially if a woman uses it.
If you call a woman a "c**t" stand by for incoming rounds. Trust me I know, I was married to one once.
