That is all. I'm done. Anyone else have something helpful to add?
Yeah, why do woman always get so worked up over this? (sorry, couldn't resist).
pfffft, b a wymynz and go 2 da kitshan.
Actually maybe it's really "woetoman?"
*shudder* I'm warning you! When we get assigned to Petaluma I'm giving you such a spanking!
Every English-speaker should get worked up over native speakers who can't speak the language, can't speak any other languages, yet are incensed that we still offer public services in languages other than English in the USA. The misuse of the word 'women' definitely bothers me as does poor usage in general. However, this particular group peeves me the most.
They have the right to call themselves whatever they want to.
I call them Women, because that's how I've been raised to. I think that by doing so I am being as Sexually derogatory as any woman who spells it the way the dictionary does.
Holy Crap! Kindergarten flash back!
Get a dictionary. Next, be a man, and die early. :tongue:
That's it, Mr. Noogies too!
Go pick out your switch!
Uh... We're discussing grammar and usage. Or making jokes. This thread is about grammar or usage complaints, friend. We're not entertaining serious debate over feminism, or attempts to alter the language. Please start another thread if you;d like to discuss that.
Wimminz?? LOL, that's bad ass. Oh, for fuck's sake, what's with people saying "should of" and "could of?" That's my grammar pet peeve.
You will be spanked with an eleven inch dildo. Your dog will be embarrassed.
YES! This is now banned, and spankings will be disseminated!
In the South, isn't the pural of woman: y'oman?? (cf: y'all, y'uns, etc.)
but, I was only kidding...*cries*
oh the one that I hate the most is your instead of you're
Those are both good ones, but how about
They're instead of their or even there.
I also detest when people forget to use plural (see what I mean?) or used (haha) the wrong past tense.
What kills me is when people use big vernaculars out of context
(PLEASE recognize the sarcasm in my misuse of "vernacular")
Vernacular makes me think of spectacular spermacular...

Are we questioning the plurality of women??? :biggrin1:
You know what else got me (if we're not supposed to be discussing grammar, somebody stop me) but CONVERSATE isn't/wasn't a word. I don't remember seeing "conversate" in a dictionary til recently, probably because so many people said it that it had to be made into a word. Hell, bootylicious is in some dictionaries.
