PC his/her crap?

(Re: Erika L. Jonietz message)

It is the subtle things in life that will never cease to amaze me...

In Erikas message about her formative years and what influenced her to go into
science, an interesting remark was made which took priority over all other
points alluded to in that message, and which showed a lack of interest in
taking the time to make *equal* gender distinctions a part of her life. This
*PC his/her crap* (direct quote from message) is something Erika states she
does not get into. I *have* to say something.

It takes one who can see the wrong in sexism, one who gives a damn about equali
ty to make a point of *getting into* this PC his/her *crap*. One does not go
around saying: Oh yeah, sure sexism is wrong! then turn around and condone its
practices. Learn that fact of life, and learn it quick, kiddo! It is obvious
that as a freshman in biology, you still have much to learn. I suggest you
waste no time and begin now. You choose to remain stagnant and not evolve with
the times and you will forever remain far behind, far, *far* behind. Forward
you will never go.

To many of us the erradication of sexism is not a fad, not light, funny or
cute. It is serious *crap*......
