. . . imaginary rescues of your damsels in distress from the slings and arrows of outrageous nicknames!
If you think carefully about it, YOU are actually the one who doesn't respect women - underlying your outrage is the assumption that babe musicians need a knight in shining armor, such as yourself, to protect their dainty sensibilities from these horrible nicknames which have been used for them. They're so weak, and they can't defend themselves, so they need YOU to speak up for them.
That's fine - if you don't have much of a life other than to guard for transgressions against your ideas of propriety in referring to female musicians, then go for it! I guarantee you that not everyone (and that includes women) shares your particular brand of sensitivity.
That's twisted. Are you compensating for insecurity or merely incorrigible?
I get the feeling that this forum and its contents are far more important in your life than in mine. How does what we request diminish your enjoyment of participating in it? Will your ego collapse if you refrain from pointlessly mocking an entire class of human beings?
Please don't demean Shakespeare by paraphrasing him so tritely. It only cheapens him.
I'm defending a principle: that all people, especially dedicated professionals, deserve respect regardless of their sex. It is utterly inconceivable to me that you cannot understand that and act accordingly unless you have malicious intent.
Can you imagine what would happen if someone began posting threads about nigger violinists? Would you draw the line there? Why nigger and not babe? Is one term less derogatory as a classification than the other? Ask a few women.
berate is 8 and benign is 9
OMG you hit the nail on the head there but please please please don't say babe! (I feel so dirty even spelling it out) Call it the B word. And if anyone asks you which B word it is just tell them **THE**!! B word. They should know what you are talking about.
Chris, you certainly bring out the best in people, especially those who call for sensitivity and manners and then blast you with their own insensitivity and bad manners. :)
Chris, I will address you in the type of language you are familiar with.
You are a douchebag, an obnoxious person.
What makes your behavior pathetic is that it appears you are smart enough to know that you're acting like an idiot. On the other hand, you may be too old to realize that.
Anything else you'd like to share?
keeping in mind the context of the thread.
That said, I've never been particularly comfortable with these 'babe' threads but then I am also not particularly comfortable with the way women in classical music are 'marketed'.
I've been guilty of posting more than my fair share on album covers with what I consider attractive musicians, so I suppose I must share some of the blame.
For crying out loud, this isn't a forced confession, Soviet-style show-trial! ;-)
