Different guy. The name was a play on Chemical Ali.

Really? Dual Bozos? Shocking

Thanks - I had thought they were one and the same. Consider

I have seen far, far more people railing against purported "feminazis" than I have ever seen actual such people.

So there's that.

I don't know the the "word" feminazi should apply in this situation or not, but I did watch a really stupid story on CNN today that is not so uncommon.

Warning, I may fuckup the details!
Some (female) senator broke a 'story' about old senators telling her not to loose too much weight because her liked women to be a bit chubby. This was labelled sexist many times in the story. They also considered the reverse situation...if a female had told a man the same thing. They told the second point of view as a joke which they dismissed, laughed off, and said 'of course that wouldn't be sexist. Then they explained why these old men are just behind the time and should be ignored. Consider

Now, the men (who remained nameless) were probably rude whether they intended it or not, but sexist? I think not.

Same as with racism, if you were treated the same way she (supposedly) was, you'd feel discriminated against too.

This is the same story, it is not told the same and not what I was referencing. Either way, yes, in that situation I'd feel discriminated against...whether I had a penis or not.

If I was in a similar situation it would depend on how the women looked.

It is Baghdad Bob (sometimes known as Comical Ali) the Minister of Information during the start of the Iraq War. He was known for making grandiose statements about how well the Iraqi forces were doing and the supposed mass defection of American troops.

The picture is less than 2 cm across and he is wearing the same uniform, so my mistake is understandable.
