    How is calling a well known female lawyer a prostitute not denigrating?

    If you think women are not offended by such language you're wrong.

    Prostitute | Define Prostitute at Dictionary.com


    She qualifies for #3 and #5


    She does not qualify for #1 - #2 & #4


    Seriously Mrs. PF
    she is on the same level as Rush, not higher or lower she is a publicity (you know what).

    Then no one would have any problem with me referring to Sarah or Bristol Palin as a prostitute.

    I agree but at the same time I can imagine that a lot of woman would find that description offensive upon hearing it.

    Seriously, Icy, she is on the same level as L. Lin Wood, Herman Caine's lawyer. I hardly recall anyone saying he was a prostitute or remarking on his tendency to represent sleaze.

    It's funny...when a guy accused of sexual harrassment picks a guy lawyer who has a reputation of winning high profile sexual harrassment changes he's doing the smart thing - but when a woman picks a woman attorney who's got a reputation for winning high profile cases where the client is the accuser, they're both sluts, whores and prostitutes.

    Got an explanation for that, anyone?

    A lot of men would, too. As would I. That's my point - it's offensive. No matter who's being called it.

    I think they grew into deserving the description. I think a lot of controversy would be avoided if the word was preceded with "attention" or "media".

    I vehemently disagree with any assertion or implication that Gloria Allred is a prostitute. :mad:

    After all, most prostitutes have high moral and ethical standards than Allred.

    Ohhhh okay, so it wouldn't be sexist to say "Sarah Palin is a prostitute"?

    Think "Shepac" would agree?

    That's actually pretty mild compared to what other liberal icons of yours have called her.

    Palin was called some bad names ... nobody on the left here complained ... it is what it is.

    I even found stuff on daily Kos and Dem Underground where they talk bad of her.

    You can have anything you want ... however if you are a public person it can and will be used against you. :D

    I would not call any woman that name unless it was her profession.

    I have just provided several examples of where she does fit into the definition.

    My record here in the forum is one of defending 99.9% of women ... I would not defend this one.

    This lady Gloria ... why would anyone defend here .... she is a publicity heat seeking missle.

    Well we know you wouldn't as we know from your posting history.


    Of course that was indeed the point of Harry's thread that Ms Allred wanted to see Limbaugh prosecuted but she appears on the Maher show after Maher referred to Ms Palin as a *unt. Most women find the term *unt more offending that the term Prostitute, YMMV.

    This of course makes Ms Allred a hypocrite.
