Hi Fallen, Actually, it was more the male term that bothered me a little. Not that I was horrified, but that kind of language sounds more like it belongs on a casual men's board. Maybe because I am a woman and have been subjected to unwanted, detailed descriptions from guys passing by about sexual things, it feels weird to see that word in a safe place, even though I know the poster did not mean it that way at all.

Also, it felt a little weird to see it coming from a poster I had never seen before (the guy). Because you (Fallen) are a regular female poster and always have insightful things to say, I know where you are coming from, but from a new male poster, it sends up a little red flag I guess. I guess that is a double standard that I have and I'm not saying it's fair.
