I do think the casual stuff is what needs calling out though. It's much more powerful at reinforcing stereotypes and is frickin everywhere.
I think we're in agreement, but the problem is the context which you used the word "cunt" was as an insult, not just as a vulgar word for female genitalia, So you appear to be hypocrite.
Anyway, the point I'm really trying to make is that yes, sexism is bad, but you know, it's not all MEGA SUPER BAD, and maybe just have a bit of a barometer for when it's really worth making a point of it, especially if you yourself have used terms for which others would consider you to be sexist.
Anyway, real football starts again tomorrow.
