Granted, I'm an unregistered user (though I might be creating an account.) But this seems to be getting massively trolled by anti-feminists and racists, and should really be protected because their edits are making this guide quite unhelpful.126.96.36.199 11:22, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
- I semi-protected the page. Once you create an account you'll just have to wait 3 days before you can edit it (though you'll still be able to edit many other pages), and I hope you do! Monadic (talk) 19:04, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
The explanation as to why it is open for discussion says "incest taboo." Incest is most often a form of rape, so this is most definitely patriarchal in origin.
Swear Word Suggestion
Can I just put forward a suggestion for what could be used as a swear word in replacement for "fuck"? "Nuke." When I was a kid, I thought "nuke" was a swear word because it was used much in the same way as "fuck." In the Weird Al song Christmas at Ground Zero, the speaker says "What a crazy fluke / We're gonna get nuked!" It sounded to me like "We're gonna get fucked" because the word "fuck" has acquired similar connotations of hostility and domination. If an army guy in a movie says "Let's nuke the bastards," he might as well be saying "Let's fuck the bastards" for all it matters in the scene. Nuclear bombs, however, deserve that reputation. They are horrible and deserve to be treated negatively and as an expression of hostility. If we want to address rape culture through taking the negative connotations away from references to "fucking," throwing it onto references to warfare, which we as a culture should recognize as negative, seems like a good approach. --Dragonclaws(talk) 18:15, March 8, 2015 (UTC)
I can't tell whether the animal "insults" are intended to be acceptable or not, but if you are truly interested in equality, using animals as insults goes against that. You also forgot to mention that "bitch" is another animal term and is also speciesist. Skfive (talk) 07:06, April 12, 2015 (UTC)
