I would also like to make one further comment.

As I have noted on earlier emails I sent out,  the attitude Carl displayed and his use of that word in intended to shut the conversation down.  It is intended to make women uncomfortable, disgusted and to cause them to leave the conversation.

Carl is obviously comfortable with this being an all male (or mostly so) elist about philosophy.  A subject he and a lot of folks see as a mostly male bastion.

He WANTS you to leave!  PLease, stay and don't validate his attempts to shut you up.

As soon as I can figure out how to, I will be unsubscribing from this list.  Already I rarely read it because of the endless philosophical discussions and arguments, which are not what I expected when I signed up.  Today's incredibly sexist, misogynistic argument about women and sex had only male participants, had only an initial and tangential connection to the topic of the list (atheism and secular humanism), and should have been taken off-list as soon as the moderator mentioned that the poster's comments were potentially grounds for banishment from the list.

I am greatly disappointed.
