I want to say that I knew what I was walking into when I started this thread. Did I expect some people to not read the whole thing and make snap
judgments? Sure. Did I expect many to be upset? Sure. What I guess I didn't expect was the amount of downright disrespectful replies.
What I wanted was a way to have a discussion about how words can make some of us feel. That bashing is ridiculous, but it does happen. And it has been
happening.. often. I guess what it all boils down to is, did you take it personal? Did you fill the blank with something degrading even though it was
Did you think that this was absurd? Many men wrote here, and had very nice things to say, and understood that it goes both ways. For those of you who
flew off the handle, maybe you can take a look back, and think about why you got so upset.
I do not in any way regret writing this thread, as I have learned much, and I'm sure many of us have.
