i suppose next you'll tell us vwhobo calls people "twinkie" as an affectionate nickname?
but uh... when did i say you were throwing around insults? "twinkie" is vwhobo's word, so far as i know.
weather or not you think "twinkie" is demeaning, it's the way he used it. what the word commonly means has little to do with how he was using it this time.
now, just to get one thing straight, i'm not attacking vwhobo for calling him a names... but at the same time i dont attack(or defend) newyorker for namecalling. what gets on my nerve is the blatent double standard that i saw. that's where i see a problem.
