  1. That’s just it. There are MANY words that “you can call a guy back.” Dick, Cock, Prick, Ass. The difference isn’t that saying “You are a worthless [insert gender correct insult for genitalia]” doesn’t happen to men. The difference is that it happens to men so often, men don’t even notice. It happens to women so rarely that the insult soft spot isn’t callused over. The difference is we think nothing of calling a man a ‘dick’, but it’s career ending to call a woman a ‘cunt’. The difference isn’t that we are harsher to women, but that we are so much harsher to men that the insults become meaningless.
