Re: “Top 10 Dick Moves

As a woman I find the whole concept offensive and irritating. Using that word is such a cheap shot. Yes, we all have some idea what people mean when they use it but it varies from person to person. It is also a BUZZ word which lowers its value considerably among those who read for content and not titillation and for those who aren't sure about this word (to tickle; excite a tingling or itching sensation in, as by touching or stroking lightly) it's not based on the slang word for a part of the body).
But if the list were to be taken seriously, then the actual selected items could be subject to more scrutiny that just another 'd---' list.
There are topics out there more than worthy of an actual rant with facts and proof (and NO stupid moving pictures---what are we, three year olds?) but that would take work and not just quickly assembled personal opinions.

If the writer is looking to creating a following with her personal rhetoric, well good luck. There are more independent thinkers and writers in the area and what may not make it into
print is certainly expressed elsewhere.

And since I do read other publications and newspapers and hope for higher standards from all, I've been known to write a critical appraisal of the research and work that went into an article in the Guardian (UK) (the most recent call-out) as I feel and believe that those who write for publication (for the public) have a greater responsibility than many of them show.
