Ta for raising the issue, G.
I'm afraid I didn't have the bottle to comment earlier on Why ("Goat Boy") she was on the list in the first place, (or why she got votes ) as I'd only have come across Miss Prunes and Prisms.
I'm not a fan of the word, used publically and derogatively where females are concerned.
I've been less than happy in the past when a bloke on the board called me that name and I had to wrestle a retraction +/- apology out of him.
Just to play Devil's Advocate, once you join in with a thread that announces itself fairly bluntly with 'the word in question', why should it matter what sex the accused is, and why is it necessarily a mysogynistic thing to vote for Minnie?
(To be clear, I didn't).
But, she voices her opinions as loudly as anyone else on the board, and is as quick to judge others as, for example, DD.
Is there a double standard?
I shall take the matter under advisement.
