Whatever I say is sexist, according to some.

So just look toward me for your meaning.

A sexist, like a racist, is a label given to anyone that holds an opinion, on the subject of race and sex, which goes agaisnt popular cultural opinions.

It is mostly associated with violence, like anarchy is, so as to discredit it using emotional methods also derived from social trainnig concerning the evilness of physicals aggression or hatred that results in social fragmentation.

That you cannot see beyond your blinkers?

What an ambiguous argument.

one can say the same about you.

It is YOU who are a sexist because you cannot see beyond your blinkers.

Do you, actually, think that being part of a majority makes you the righteous one?

The terms sexist, like the term racist, is one that implies error. It implies it without actually having to prove it.

It assumes that the majority is automatically right and anyone proposing an idea contrary to majority belief is automatically wrong...

Am I part of a majority? How have you measured this majority and how have you made the association between this majority and I?

If the majority are sexist and/or racist are they wrong or right?

Can one be a sexist and male or can one be sexist and female? Or both?

What if half the people hold a particular view and the other half don't? Who would be right in that situation?

And who said anything about the label 'righteous'? Oh satyr did as only 'he' sees clearly, it seems. Even though he implies he doesn't like labels.

Blinkers, you see, restrict the vision. Assumptions make arses out of us too.

I think that I can agree with that definition.
