In the message you replied to and in all the other messages of Amaya's that I 
have read I have not seen anything which could reasonably be interpreted as 
sexism or discrimination against any other group.

The pictures from Amaya's site which were previously cited in this thread did 
not offend me.


Some of the pins had exaggerated slogans which are used for rhetorical effect 
(see the Wikipedia page on hyperbole).  Attending a political rally wearing a 
pin saying "I'm mildly opposed to ..." would not be effective.
