Correction: I most certainly did NOT suggest that the linguistic aspects
of gender and race issues are less meaningful/important than other
aspects. In fact, I believe that they are very important. What I wrote
was that there are IMHO more meaningful and important matters to discuss
re: race and gender issues than "which is worse, racism or sexism."
