    Hi Wade,

    Are you saying, accordingly by the article, that women can 't be " offended
    " by their own sexual attribute because they can 't " see " it !? And that in some strange way they focus their attention on the penis because that is/ becomes visible !? Maybe a strange deduction from my part of the world but would that than not explain the ' memetic war ' we have read in the original article about those females destroying a snow phallus !? And that in addition the whole argument about showing a penis, under form of any art- form, can be reduced to the same argument !?

    Showing the ( erected) penis is memeticly more harmful than showing one cunt !? Why would that be, metaphorically speaking, I would prefer to watch the penis, womens vagina is one place hidden away in the mids of a dark forest... a cave, full of mistery but nevertheless it can suck you inside and watch you die....
