commented on The Morning News: Seattle Church Commits to Protecting Marginalized Groups, Bellevue Sees Spike in Hate Crimes
Maybe I shouldn't say this, afflicted as I am with terminal White Maleness, but this "womxn" term I keep seeing offends my every editorial impulse. I literally flinch a little when I see it. Whatever happened to the also objectionable, but at least somewhat linguistically defensible "womyn"? I assume it has to do with some vague chromosomal associations with the letter "y," which really doesn't deserve to be so pigeonholed?
At any rate please tell me it only pertains to this march, and will be mothballed in future uses of the English language.

I don't know from Debbie Reynolds's eventual obituary writer, but I do know this post from Charles captures something essential and insightful.
