Mmm no, I disagree. When someone objects to something like this, and you
dismiss them as being manipulative and creatively thin-skinned and
politically correct, you're perpetrating the same old garbage that women have
been subjected to since forever. First we get criticized for not being more
assertive and standing up for ourselves. When we do, we're accused of being
thin-skinned and whiny. How about taking these objections seriously, and
talking things over seriously, instead of dismissing people's concerns in
such negative terms? Both of your posts were dismissive and disrespectful.
That doesn't help anything. This sort of thing bothers a lot of people-
telling them their feelings are wrong is not the answer.
