"Poo-head McSmallDick"?

Come on, we can do better than that.

Mickey may not be writing on behalf of California NOW, but this piece just makes us look bad.

CA NOW

Molly,

We like to give our guest writers a lot of latitude in their language, but you're right, this is not appropriate. Not because it's "bad" language, or unimaginative language, but because it plays into patriarchal stereotypes. Any of our writers should know better than to protest demeaning language by using demeaning language, and we'll be talking with Mickey about this.
