“While he was black he was terrible and bad, awful and used to cut off white men’s hand, and didn’t actually claim his son. But as soon as he claims his son, goes over to the good, takes off his mask and he is white — yes, I have many feelings about that.”

 LOL

Folk are still harping on on the net that a black guy doesn't fit in Star Wars.  This stuff goes both ways.  Can't we just agree that idiots are idiots?

Welcome to equality. We can take 'em as easily and as gracefully as we give 'em. It's only fair, right? I'm so fair about it I call everyone "bitch" regardless of their cis parts. Because everyone's equal, right?

Or are some more equal than others and automatically excused from criticism or, indeed, labels?
I would prefer that we move to equally thoughtful rather than equally rude. I don't like when people use male-based insults anymore than I do female. When someone points out to me that I'm being prejudicial (as you are in your post) or unfairly generalizing, I don't brush it off with a label or an attack. I try to improve by listening to criticism.

Yup.

Seems like the blaming everything on the  'PC' thing is a way to avoid actually being respectful and considerate to others.

What a stupid bitch. May she be locked in a room and forced to watch The Phantom Menace over and over again.
It's good to be aware that your hateful disdain extends to all women. Thanks for the heads up.

How does a comment about one woman extend to "all women?"
By using a term that degrades all women to insult her. But you knew that.

...Writing "what a stupid bitch" doesn't imply all women are "stupid bitches".

But some are. For instance, the ones who try reading between the lines and feel the need to write haughty and sarcastic replies.

Using sex-based insults implies something about the sex. For instance calling someone a d*ck implies something generally negative about men.

It only says something negative about the targeted "someone". It doesn't say or imply anything about other men. What makes you feel it does?

When someone gets called a dick, I don't feel offended as a man. Some guys are dicks and that's a perfectly fine thing to say.

You don't understand that the words that we use as insults became insults for a reason?

Her being a "bitch" has nothing to do with having a view on a movie you don't agree with.
In this context, the insult "bitch" was chosen (and repeatedly used by different posters) simply because she was a female.

At this point I'm undecided what is the more stupid statement - Melissa Harris-Perry claiming Star Wars is Racist 'cos Darth Vader is black or Emily claiming that calling a woman a stupid bitch means you hate all women.

I hereby declare that "bitch" is a genderfluid insult. You're oppressing me if you disagree. Oh, and you're sexist and definitionally prejudiced (see, I can improvise words that don't really mean anything like the best of the Tumblristas, too!).

Jumping to conclusions based on absolutely no evidence is what made this board the hippopotamical monstrosity it is today, Mr. "I didn't like NPP so therefore I hate Brian Wilson." Smiley

Is it jumping to conclusions that someone being misogynist is misogynist?

Referring to someone as a misogynist for using the word "bitch" is an example of jumping to conclusions. You know who else uses the word "bitch?" Tons of women. I don't see them complaining about the usage.

There's a difference between wanting tact and trying to police the thinking and word usage of others.

Lots of women are misogynist. How could they not be? Look at the culture in which they were raised.

If you think the culture in which women were raised in this country is a misogynist culture, I really do wonder what you think about the progressive cultures overseas...y'know, where women are actually oppressed. Y'know, because the word "bitch" is clearly a microaggression these days. Let's get the safe spaces ready...the trigger-happy generation is about to go into collective convulsions.
