The C Word

I hate the "C" word. It's sexist, mean, shallow, and never "new Feminist powering" or reclaimingly constructive (as some claim the "B" word is).

I hate it when it's used to describe anyone, be they nine years old or 29 or 90.

The Onion really did something really dumb. They have the ability to shock and be funny at the same time, but they blew it with the "C" tweet. And let this remind us that the word is just, well, never really good for anything but making someone look petty and desperate to offend.

Now let's let them apologize and then let's all move on.

UPDATE: Which they did.
