  • People wonder why I get offended at sexist comments (except @Chaz, he doesn't care)

    I get pilloried on other forums, for pointing out sexist comments. I bridle, instinctively, at the blatant, mindless and thoughtless rudeness so prevalent in society, which - say what you like - is dominantly patriarchal. I get told I'm overblowing things. I get told I'm seeing things, where things ain't. I get told I'm too sensitive, anal, and I exaggerate the situation.

    Ok then. These are the songs our young children are listening to.
    Now tell me what the hell you want, but don't tell me they're not being fed crap.
    For the greater part, they're using the immensely popular mediums of music and image to convey the fact that women are there for one thing, and one thing only.
