Dmitry, do you remember over a year ago when a game was proposed that
had the end goal of raping and torturing women?? We ALL went ballistic
on that one. The reason? It was illegal, at least in this country. Since
Debian is hosted in the US, then US laws had to be upheld. Yet, we
didn't censor the game. We didn't have to. It was plainly illegal to
distribute it here. And, the majority of opinion was from men.

That is correct.

So I ask you, are women in bikinis illegal in the US?

I fear not.

It's not the last time I looked! :) But, we do have various factions who would have that be so. Remember in the 60's when the Beatles stormed the US?? People went CrAzY over the long hair. THEY LOOK LIKE WOMEN! Heh, so what?? One bridge that supported TRUE sexism was burned. Men could wear their hair like women, and women could wear their hair like men. Great! People could look any way they wanted to.

But, as soon as the argument here failed to include bisexual and homosexual women, they lost any discussion regarding "sexism". It is just as sexist to omit them from the list of potential "offenders". To my perspective that is far worse than the 'teen in a bikini" issue when examining ~real~ sexism issues, to direct the diatribe at men only.

Miriam, you set the movement back many years. To be equal, you need to BE equal. Yet, you cannot accuse another woman of being potentially "eye gaze" offensive/abusive. What? Isn't that sexist?? :) Ric
