Hi you and THANK YOU please feed my ego any day I can use it. I hear you and know what you mean ...no big deal really so please don't worry and let it pass...I did however ask my husband what term he would have used and many men will use this term over the more medical..and another term thats a bit wilder..My husband though a creep all in all is a man who is well educated with his degree in Economics from a major university...and still his delicate word would be H/0 ..No biggie as it may be a dead issue

> 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.
