|You typed it, it's there, there have been two discussions on it, providing a mod hasn't already okayed the change by the time I'm posting this I suggest it be left as it is, for future reference.|
I saw that yesterday evening and was just so flummoxed, I typed a response to that and then didn't post it, because I didn't want another thread devolving into another thesis on Shadowsax and the dirty, dirty women, although in the lack of news in that case at the moment I think it's going to happen. I felt it was a fantastically bad choice of words.
I'm very aware of the charges levelled against Barbelith for being more accepting of misogyny than say, racism, I'm also aware that discussion of this has been a few 'oh shit' posts in the womens thread while over here men are trying to justify it.
The problem as ever, is that Shadowsax is posting from what people here perceive as an anti-female mindset but not posting anti-female tracts.
Still, there's little more we can do here accept commiserate about it. Send a PM to Tom, asking for him to be banned, with links and quotes to objectionable language, and see what he says.
