Don't be so quick to judge. I didn't say it didn't exist. I said I didn't
know what incident she was talking about, and I couldn't think of any
examples of blatant misogyny on-wiki from personal experience. Don't assume
my experience encompasses everything on-wiki, and certainly not what you or
anyone else has. I didn't say a "pimpmasta123" name or a pimp userbox
misogynist, I said I'd never heard of it.

Oh please, calling oneself a pimp as a user name and saying, "Gotta
keep the pimp hand strong" is about as misogynist as it gets. Oh,
wait, it goes one better. There's a "this user is a pimp" user box.
I put it on my user page along with a thousand others, and no one
gives a shit. It's cute and something that boys do, and all the boy's
friends will slam down anyone who objects to the boy proudly
displaying his misogyn--so I found out.
