Just a denotation/connotation note here - I was reading the post, trying to
decide if the language was 'gender specific' and whether a woman would have
phrased it the same, pondering double standards, et al, and I wondered why
you are comfortable typing 'bullshit' and not 'chickenshit'? Is one more
offensive or less acceptable?
