apropos of murphy's complaint about equatinng sexism with racism....

a query...are you suggesting that there is a threshold of abuse or
exlusion or violence based on qualities below which this abuse is
acceptable and beyond which it is not?

while analagies never quite parallel, your concern over the accuracy of
comparing sexism and racism struck this not always gentle reader as
embedding a truly peculiar implication which your brevity left
unexplored...are you really suggesting a means test of some sort???
