Things That Amuse Me

When a blogger, whose use of "cunt" as an insult I recently used as an example in a piece about misogynistic language, posts a graphic that's totally meant to put me in my place for my sanctimonious demagoguery (i.e. explaining that misogynistic language is alienating and rude), but misspells the word "misogynistic."

The correct spelling is, of course, misogynisticmis being from the Greek mīsein, to hate, and gyn being from the Greek gunē, woman.

Carry on.
