In my defense (for my instigative comments earlier in the thread), im
not macho/sexist in any way, I am simply lewd, loud and obnoxious and
enjoy cynical humor, because the joke is not the joke, its the fact
that some genuinely may laugh at it. Some may even call me an
asshole, but hey, at least I didnt *start* this goddamned thread.
Anyway if you were offended, too bad. Really, Im not sure where the
"right" to not be offended comes from, but frankly, if the list (and
PD by extension) is truly to be open, someones going to be offended -
get used to it.
I realize one of my responses was sent privately, but I really want
to say, for the women (and yes, I agree, speaking of women as girls
is pretty dismissive), on the list that lurk, if you are offended by
any speech on this list, its your job to speak up, lest it be
perpetuated. Same goes for any group or individuals. However, I share
the confusion on where the hell this whole thing came from. Frankly I
think its a non issue. My opinion may not count though, as I have a
But fuck, I really do hate feminism as it is an "ism", and by that I
mean it has some strange life of its own. I could not be more for
equality though. Well said.
You know, I showed this thread to my girlfriend, and she basically
rolled her eyes and laughed at everyone who takes this thread
seriously. Stop trying to be so goddamned 'fair' and pay more
attention to user experience in PD, its interface, compatibility and
improving the overall experience of *using* the software. Perhaps
all the *girls* (GROSS!!!!!) are using Max?
