Apparently I’m a sexist according to Rebecca Dominguez because I called a woman a bitch. I didn’t call the woman a bitch because I have anything against women. I chose the word ‘bitch’ because, and I refer you to definition 2a on answers.com, it was appropriate and accurate for the context:
- A female canine animal, especially a dog.
- A woman considered to be spiteful or overbearing.
- A lewd woman.
- A man considered to be weak or contemptible.
- Slang. A complaint.
- Slang. Something very unpleasant or difficult.
I submitted the following comment, pending moderation at the time I write this, on Rebecca’s blog:
I repeat, in case you didn’t hear my message the first time, my rant was not against women. I respect women as a group of people in society who often get the raw end of the deal. Honestly.
My attack was against Ilana Leeds. She happens to be a woman. If she was a man, she would have copped the same barrage from me.
I can’t win this. You are going to call me sexist no matter what.
In the words of Brian Cohen, there’s no pleasing some people.
