Women suffer tangible impact to their quality of life due to sexism, misogyny, and the persistent condition of, for example, worrying about being raped and murdered while jogging. This is just "how it is" and you can't even make a Gillette commercial about it without society losing it's mind.

Here's how it breaks down: if you make sexist jokes, or laugh at them, OR don't speak out against them-- you are giving the ol' "wink and nod" to all the other stuff. Period. If this upsets you then please do some self examination.

@BigV - Understand, but I'm hoping for the best.  Unfortunately, since I rent, it's a little harder to just wait for one without an HOA.  They're very rare with a garage and usually in some state of disrepair because they're older houses.

@Bruce - luckily, they're seniors.  No more school for them.  And now that Max is on a diet, the food should last longer - LMAO

@glatt - I'm looking forward to that and having a garage and a yard for the pups.

@griff - Thanks

@footfootfoot - Hopefully not too soon!!

You guys (apart from Flint) just don’t get it about sexism do you? It is tedious and frequently threatening behaviour that all women are repeatedly and unjustifiably subjected to which adversely affects all aspects of our lives. I agree with Monster that I ignore a lot of the sexist post content here because I enjoy the diversity of the Cellar, and that includes bringing me into contact with people who regularly contribute to the sexist miasma in which women have to live, because these people have other redeeming features.
Do we want the Cellar to be a place where this behaviour is not called out? If it is OK to call out people for spreading false science, woo, and grapeseed oil, then surely it is also OK to call people out on their sexism?
I avoided the politics forum at .org partly because I feared it was full of name calling and personal insults, aimed at politicians and at other dwellars. In visiting the politics forum here, I find my fears justified. Why can’t a politics forum actually discuss, debate, disagree and find concensus on ideas, eh? Political ideas?
And to address you individually:

No, Henry, you are merely using a euphemism. That does not make you less sexist, as is proven by this exchange:

She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked. That makes her a cunt in my book

O where is our fainting couch

Monster is not asking for “identity specific niceness privilege”. She is as

Regarding the thread topic..

Sexism against a woman in politics is all of these things:
1. 100% guaranteed to happen.. predictable, played-out, and pathetic
2. Consists of low-quality, substance-less "jokes" with no real premise other than-- "she's a WOMAN so [something about sex]" HAR HAR HAR
3. is about as funny as "I identify as an attack helicopter," and "I will run over protestors with my truck" HAR HAR HAR
4. Representative of the ad hominem attacks that have DOMINATED right-wing politics since Newt Gingrich wrote the playbook

here's what's gonna happen in my house...

we'll have guests, mebbe as many as 20 or 30, over the course of the whole day

many of us, most of us, won't mask up

there will be many handshakes and hugs

we'll sit together, side by side, shoulder to shoulder

there will be laughing and loud conversation

anyone -- family or friends -- feelin' apprehensive about it, is free to leave, or -- better yet -- not come over to begin with

They'll never do it. They are more opposed to Progressive policy than they are to Republicans. The Democrats feel they can win on demographics, and they can-- just barely. But Biden will 100% be a one-termer and I'm already mentally preparing for an even worse next 8 years.

None of your responses about me are relevant to the matter in hand.

I agree

me: not carin' if you want my sweet ORANGE bazooka dead

no, the matter at hand: is it okay to call a hoe whore?

personally, I think it's jim-dandy, A-OK, to call a hoe whore, but -- as I say -- I don't wanna sully this brand-spankin' new forum with my filthy misogyny (which is just a tiny subset of my much larger misanthropy), so I'll refrain from callin' a hoe whore and instead call a hoe hoe

the forum stays sparkly-clean and feminism is preserved: cuz who can object to hoe?

no one, that's who

'nuff said ('till no one shows up to complain)
