It is an animated version of the honeymooners set in the stone age. It teaches children that married people frequently lie and play tricks on each other to avoid each others company.

Has our culture become so incredibly misogynistic that when we do not like or approve of another persons behavior that we have to refer to them as a device used to clean female genitalia? Why is this term acceptable when more traditional four letter explicatives are what we really mean. Are we so unoriginal that we as a culture can not find a better way to refer to someone with disdain?If you think some one is a fuck, call them a fuck. Calling some a douchebag is in no way more acceptable.

Douchebag and fuck both illustrate a laziness of thought. I never said it was the only appropriate word. I said that people use it in the place of traditional swear words as a somehow more socially acceptable slur. Colostomy bag would fit the bill perfectly. It implies ickyness and and but is sanitized of the more crude reference. People wont use it not because it does not flow, but rather because they the because the term douchebag is much more heavily loaded with meaning.

I would like to note that you are crudding my arguments against because you do not agree with my claim of misogyny, not because they are they bad arguments against using the word. I on the other had find a silly sounding word argument to be poor when people could just work a little harder to find a better insult that to use publically or in mixed company We have one of the most diverse languages on the planet, borrowing words, phrases and ideas from almost every other language we encounter. Surely we can do better.

The "moderately amusing and intriguing sequence of sounds" argument is a matter of perception. When one use the term that may be their intent, but what i perceive is latent misogyny. At its most basic its says dirty girl parts are icky and bad and by equating this person with dirty girl parts I'm saying they are bad too.

If people signed a waiver that said they would neither seek nor accept state paid for medical help when buying their hardcore drugs they can shoot up and melt away in a corner for all I care (heck Id say a state cremation could probably be thrown in too), but they do not have the right to abuse drugs then make themselves a burden on the rest of society.

Your average pot head may cry foul against this argument in that their drug of choice isn't so instantly addictive or destructive as hard drugs. Weed will give you cancer just like cigarettes if you smoke it long enough. We may not have outlawed tobacco, but we've raised the tax so high that people can not afford to buy them and the only place they are free to smoke anymore is in their own home or outside away from other people.

You can not open up an apple product without voiding your warranty. You will have to upgrade your entire machine every time instead of extending the life of the machine with incremental improvements.

It is way too expensive. You are locked into a data plan and one of the most useful tools, the gps, comes at a fee. This is a toy for the rich instead of a tool for the masses.

Developers feel that because the wii remote has a motion sensor they need to add a stick wiggle part to every single game no matter how much it disrupts the flow of the game.

She did not finish her term as governor. People in her state and in her party raised and spent a lot of money to get her in that office because they believed she was the right person for the job and she let them down.
