I don't agree with any of your conclusions about the joke so does that mean my child will grow up (in your opinion) to be sexist and/or racist?

ETA: No one has called anyone sexist here based on a joke. I don't think anyone has been called sexist period. I think the point for some of the posters I agree with was that there are ideas in that joke that are very sexist and some of the ideas put forth about "protecting offspring" ring of sexism as well.

quite a few people have been called sexist in this thread.

me included.

might wanna start at the front and make ur way to the end.

I think a refusal to be open to any suggestion that some of your ideas on this subject might perpetuate sexism and reinforce negative gender stereotypes will not do your children a great service.

That's just snide and unnecessary. I've read every post on this thread. This thread is now well over 200 posts. If I missed something and am being inaccurate, I genuinely apologize.

and I think accusations, falsely made, reinforce 'negativity' in a thread. When they are based on 'biased' opinions.


We don't mind that you think the joke is sexist, not our problem that you have an issue with us 'not' finding the joke sexist.

It's yours.

Have a nice day!

I was just speaking in general terms. I have no idea how your child(ren) will grow up.

shhhh.

long term goals arent made in a day.


I keep posting here because of entertainment value. I really don't get my feathers ruffled on this subject. I respect that other people do not agree with my parenting standards, which includes but are not limited to small side arms and sawed off shotguns, but I do get irritated when I am told I am sexist or biased in any way shape or form.


So I tend to defend myself when I am accused of something I am not. Which I was accused. Which made this thread humongous..... is that a pink flamingo?

Really? Someone specifically wrote, "Yoshua, you are sexist"? I read people dialoguing and debating, in a civil manner, about sexism and sexist ideas. I didn't read any labelling or name calling.

whoa whoa whoa....


I'm sexist?..... thought i was an equal oppourtunist and a realist? I discriminate evenly amongst all the sex's..... that is more than just 'boys and girls' btw.


If anything i would say I am an 'ageist' but I know I'm not using THAT word right

Defining a statement is different than labelling someone. But, cheers Ruthla.

So, by this argument, if you maintained and perpetuated stereotypes of all races versus one or two, you wouldn't be racist?
