    Of course a similar photo could be used, but it wasn't. It was a photo depicting one person. I know it feels like you are being upstanding and chivalrous defending women against a picture depicting a single woman, but perhaps you should let the women speak for themselves. So far, the only person whom has been outraged here is you.

    Certainly it's the Left! But you don't know that photo is offensive to women and the second offensive to Blacks so I don't expect you to know it is the Left who perpetuates this sort of ignorance. I have no use for Barak Obama as a President but I would never ever post a photo of what was here earlier on this thread. That takes a special kind of ignorance.
    No, it's offensive to you. You perceive it as being offensive to women and are feigning outrage as a result, thinking that it will score you some points with the ladies. In fact, it's really quite silly that we are still discussing such a simple and quick joke. You are still hung up on it. Feel free to feign your outrage to your heart's content. I'm not interested in pretending I'm something that I'm not.

    Wrong again. I am only better than those who defend these photos.
    Feel free to delude yourself.

    I never charge people of either being a fascist or a commie and agree with you that it lowers the level of discourse. That's what I'm getting at here. I assume you are not saying that because coarseness has been a part of the discussion for so long that we should ignore it when it happens. I think we should speak out against it, as I am doing in this case. If there are those who feel differently then let them defend their position.

    One naughty photo isn't the same as someone spreading illegitimate conspiracy theories about Islamo-Commie conspiracies to create world Caliphates and trying to sell such cornball lunacy as seriousness.
    I know of no one who is making that claim.
    My point: no one thinks that photo of Palin is really about penises. It's merely a smack on her.
    Okay, and I am smacking back. Is there a problem with that?
    People actually listen to Beck's maniacal rantings about Islamo-Commies and BELIEVE it.
    Wow, this is a segue that makes no sense whatsoever!!!

    That's much more demeaning to political discussion than some invisible penises.
    Well there are many things in this world that are more demeaning than Glen Beck also but that is not what this conversation all about.

    Why do Leftists insist on advertising their ignorance?

    Don't you lot read books, or look at anything literate that doesn't have pictures?
    So your saying leftists are illiterate, and can only understand things through pictures. If that is true how are we reading your replies?

    He's also saying that the photo is demeaning to women. Tell me, YourStar, do you feel insulted or demeaned as a woman because someone made a juvenile, yet funny, picture about Sarah Palin?

    No, but I do feel demeaned when people feel that they shouldn't make jokes like that because they feel we are too "sensitive" to take a ****ing joke. That is sexism right there, not the picture Jet posted.

    Actually I am not alone in defending women. There are millions of men and women all over the world defending women. I just happen to be the only one on this thread at this time.

    And I can see that it is just one woman being debased in that photo but the point is that any woman could be compromised in the same way. It takes no real skill or imagination and has been going on for years. Its just that the Internet has given the pervs greater opportunity to spread it around.

    I'm saying that most women would find it offensive unless they were on the far left, and then they would be ok with it. If it was Michelle Obama then the reaction might be different. I think her husband, family, and many of their supporters would find it offensive.

    I am not hung up on anything but am responding to comments others, including yourself, have made. Does it bother you that I'm responding to posts addressed to me?

    And it is ludicrous that I am trying to "score points with the ladies" on an anonymous message board! We don't even know for sure who the ladies are! LOL!

    You feel "demeaned", Your Star?

    So sorry to hear that.

    So its juvenile and funny.

    The whoopee cushion of political debate.

    There should be a separate section for the whoopee cushion crowd.

    I never said you were alone in defending women. You are alone in your outrage over this photo and in thinking that it is demeaning to women, which, is demeaning in and of itself. Are women incapable of expressing their outrage over the photo if they are indeed outraged? Do they honestly need someone like you, a guy, to point out what is or isn't demeaning to women?

    And I can see that it is just one woman being debased in that photo but the point is that any woman could be compromised in the same way. It takes no real skill or imagination and has been going on for years. Its just that the Internet has given the pervs greater opportunity to spread it around.
    And you think that the photo has nothing to do with Sarah Palin as a person or politician and is meant solely to demean her as a woman? That's a stretch and you know it. If a male Republican politican were making a similar pose then people probably would have made a similar caption. More nonsensical feigned outrage.

    I'm saying that most women would find it offensive unless they were on the far left, and then they would be ok with it. If it was Michelle Obama then the reaction might be different. I think her husband, family, and many of their supporters would find it offensive.
    And who are you to speak for "most women"? Where are these offended women? So far, I only see one completely deluded guy who is offended.

    I am not hung up on anything but am responding to comments others, including yourself, have made. Does it bother you that I'm responding to posts addressed to me?
    It doesn't bother me at all. Why would it? I find it interesting that you are continuing to perpetuate your feigned outrage, though.

    And it is ludicrous that I am trying to "score points with the ladies" on an anonymous message board! We don't even know for sure who the ladies are! LOL!
    Granted, that was an assumption on my part. It is mainly because I am boggled as to why you would continue to feign outrage over such a silly and simple joke and make it out to be some absolutely horrible joke that demeaned all women. You are being ridiculous.

    Wow! Great response Your Star.

    It seems I underestimated you.
