while the word "gay" has adopted a negative connotation over time (from merely meaning "happy" to meanings like "stupid") the word hysterical, while deriving from a latin root that ties back to references to the womb, no longer contains the same meaning. it now means "uncontrollably emotional," and while the derivation may be from a sexist perspective, its modern connotations are not limited to women, and it's commonly used to describe any gender.
Whatever. I’m over this debate. Everyone is saying different things and negating each other and nothing meaningful is coming out of this topic. Some people think it’s sexist, some don’t, and the folks that’s don’t find it sexist cannot find it within themselves to empathize with those that do find it sexist.
I’m not posting anymore things about this as it’s going nowhere.
