"My, What A Chick, Fiery Red With Your First Pick"

I read in Bart's blog that "chicks dig scars." This is certainly true; there is nothing more attractive to me than a guy with a scar and a story. Unless maybe it's a guy with a scar and a story AND a pirate voice. Swoon. Find me that guy, and I'm his. Pirates are so dang hot.

The problem I have with that quote is that it uses the c-word: Chicks. What a demeaning brush-off! And I've certainly NEVER let ANYONE demean me. I respect myself, and I demand that respect from others. Playful banter is okay; I love it, in fact. And even when it gets out of hand, it still makes me laugh. I remember fondly entire conversations I would have with Dan that went something like

Pinecone head.

and on and on. I grew up with my dad making fun of me, and it remains one of my favorite ways to express affection. If I threaten to beat you up, I might just really, really like you. I'm stuck in a third-grade mentality.

Calling me a chick, though? That insults my presence and my intelligence. Don't EVER insult my intelligence. I'll hate you for it, and you don't want me as your enemy. Intelligent people know things and can use that knowledge in scary ways.

i doubt that he meant anything by saying 'chick'...I say it a good bit and have never meant anything nagative by it. I suppose it is a bad substitution for girl, lady or female, but atleast its a different word.

I understand everybody has a pet peeve or three, but don't worry about it unless you really think he meant it as an insult

ACK! B didn't mean to insult me at all! Please don't think I'm angry or anything. It was just a movie quote, and I had issues with the screenwriter(s). Many issues. Including the c-word. But, hey, I use it too... whenever I want to condescend to someone.
