Everyone needs to calm the fuck down
A couple of days ago, I wrote an article that’s convinced a portion of my readers I’m a sexist pig (sobbing vagina was the term I used). It made me realize something important that I wanted to share: some of you need to calm the fuck down.
If you think that calling someone a pussy, a vagina, or a cunt is sexist, I think it’s time you realized that references to sexual parts are ALWAYS derogatory, regardless of the gender of the organ. Assholes are important for the fuction of any organism, but we still use it to describe unpleasant people. If it weren’t for dicks, the human species would not be unable to procreate, and yet this is not a desirable name to be called. The function of the sexual organ, in other words, is not in consideration here. Rather, it’s a reflection of the fact that human beings are relatively ashamed or embarrassed by their sexual components, and their “strong language” reflects this (in French, most swear words are based on religion rather than sex, which makes swearing in English less satisfying for my purposes).
I think the problem here is some readers are offended by the way I write in general. This is to be expected. I don’t use polite terms, and I’m not politically correct in any way. I use language to shock people, with varying degrees of success. Normally I simply ignore the language police and move on, but the comments in the article “That’s putting it mildly” were so focused on the perception calling someone a vagina is sexist I felt the need to remind everyone they should take a bit of time to actually bother to research what sexism is.
