Personally for me, language and the wording I use is important so gendered slurs that paint someone's gender as "weaker" than the other, "dumber" than the other, etc... I do not tolerate for myself and isn't something I find attractive - romantic or otherwise, in other people, so I view it as misogynistic.
I also don't really like to believe in the idea of calling a spade for a spade personally. If someone calls me an obscene adjective, I'd rather not stoop to that level - at the end of the day it doesn't contribute anything of value to an argument or disagreement. I believe there are other ways to be frank and honest without the name-calling!
But thank you for your input even if we disagree, and reading the article! Cheers.
