My response on an HTML Giant thread--or whatever the word is--regarding a comment by Adam Maynard:

Wow, this seems so much more awful than the intitial focus of this thread: “I’m with justin on this one. pemulis just comes across as a vapid cunt”; how can a cunt be vapid? Why even bother with the word cunt? I think a good general rule when it comes to gendered language is if you imagine you’d get upset at someone calling your mom–or girlfriend, or grandma, or daughter or boyfriend etc–the word, then find another word.
