My husband hates the word "moist"as well and my sister hates the word "dollop"with a passion.

No, I pretty much nailed it. The other replies made it confusing.
I've been thinking about making a thread kind of similar to what this has become for a while. I wanted to discuss words or phrases that bother you or you choose not to say for whatever reason.
I, for example, have words I find very unpleasant sounding like cigarette and pussy. Of course, there are plenty of words like retard, faggot, and bitch I don't use because they are inherently offensive and demeaning. I don't say bathroom, no idea why, but I always say restroom, none of those silly nicknames either. I'm not big on nicknames at all, really. I feel like I had a lot of material for this at one point, but I can't seem to think of any of my language quirks at the moment.
llamas, maybe you have some perspective or an opinion on this. I witnessed an argument about whether or not the use of the word 'female' when referring to women is derogatory and sexists.
I wrote a four word letter.
You mean, like if a man says, "Females are so confusing" or "I talked to a lot of females"?llamas, maybe you have some perspective or an opinion on this. I witnessed an argument about whether or not the use of the word 'female' when referring to women is derogatory and sexists.
I wouldn't go so far as to call it derogatory or sexist, but damn if a guy talks that way, I'm quick to assume he's got some deep-seated problems with women. It's fucking weird, and like he's trying to put distance between himself and women - like he's using a term that doesn't apply only to women and is used more often in science to almost make it like she's not human. It's odd, because I never hear women doing the reverse "Males are so confusing", "I talked to a lot of males." It's just awkward. Fuck, it's awkward all around, and yes, I will call a guy out for using it. But again, I don't think it is sexist or derogatory - it can be based on context (when a sexist man wants to be sexist, he's more likely to say, "Females are such sluts and bitches" than "Women are such sluts and bitches", for sure), but not always.
How about slop house, sperm shack or grease pit?
.....pole pit, jack trap or sausage hugger?
Never let it be said that MOTO is not a touchy feely, romantic kind of guy. I care about your clam houses.
