as i've responded to others on this list. words have power. chick,
when used towards a female in a derogatory fashion, is intended to
insult and demean. demeaning language helps shape the way we
look at and treat others
if you were insulted by the woman of PETA who engendered the
epithet "chick", it might make some sense. but to simply demean
someone who disagrees with your world view seems less than
mature, at best.
and i have no desire to spend my time with people, whatever cause
we may share, who are not mature enough to understand the
importance of language, and its uses.
