The author takes a wicked right turn at the end of this article, but the beginning is definitely relevant to the "sweetie" comment.

Also, count me among the women who loved Barack's "Lay off my wife" comments.

Enjoy...

Oh Yes, He Will Make Us Better

When you make fun of someone's appearance as a substitute for addressing their ideas, for whatever reason, it makes you look bad.
"Sweetie" may just be condescending, but women know that if you don't act all nice when some stranger calls you sweetie, the next words out of that someone's mouth will be skank, bitch and ho. Thanks for proving my point, Christopher. I'm disappointed, because you usually are quick to point out when other folks use racist or anti-gay language.

2008-05-19T10:22:00.000-04:00

Sweetie is as offensive as the person saying it. That is to say, if you're offended, tell 'em. The second time, it's their fault.

That said, it appears that the reporter was more upset with not getting her question answered, than with the name-calling.

Some women (particularly young ones) will FLIP OUT if you call them ma'am, as it connotes being married.

Sir, luckily enough, can be used on a man of any age.

I agree with Muze: Obama could call me "sweetie" anytime.

And BTW, Peggy Agar still looks like a man, so deal with it.

i wouldn't mind if obama called me sweetie. but i can see her point.

i hate when men do that. especially young men.

2008-05-18T19:27:00.000-04:00

Whether or not "sweetie" is an appropriate form of address depends on the context, both the intention and the situation. If I call a member of my family or a friend sweetie, that's one thing. If I call someone "sweetie" in a professional setting where there is an uneven balance of power, that is quite another. If your waitress says "Can I warm it up for you, sweetie?" that doesn't have the same effect as a man calling a women "sweetie" when she is doing her job. It was not appropriate, and it was good for her to call him on it, and I am glad he apologized.
By the way, people making fun of women's appearance as a substitute for talking about her ideas? Makes her look good and you look bad.

"Now, I have a been a proud obamaholic from day one and if loving the Black man upstairs right now as I write this is wrong than take me to jail, "

newgirl448, that was a great line, and your coments were noteworthy as well.

I gotta thank you, blckwomenblowthetrumpet, and dmd, for even making me take note of that entire dynamic. Wow! Good stuff.

2008-05-18T08:03:00.000-04:00

That fat,ugly, mannish looking bitch should be glad any man called her "sweetie". Obama needs to stop while he's behind. Otherwise folks will start saying he's sexing that beast and lawdy, lawdy, we don't need that. We've seen and heard enough stories about "brothers" with beasts like this.

2008-05-18T08:02:00.000-04:00

Ah...Leney-Poo,

I'm sorry but it must be said.

Does she have a job where she is on camera or is she in the back?

Peggy, as a stylist, you should not part your hair with a zig zag unless you are under the age of 14 with a passion for Hannah Montana. Its really 1998-99 Genie in a Bottle-ish. Also no baby blue for you.

Thats just some tough love.

On a more serious note though, I hate when men call me sweetie, hun, sweetheart...its offensive in a condescending way even kind of predatory. As the youngest female where I work, I am used to being brushed off in that manner so I am hypersensitive towards it so I know how Peggy feels. However if Barack was to call me sweetie, I wouldn't make a big deal because it would not be in his best interest. I assume that she supports Hillary or McCain.

Either she is trying to rile up the Republican base: predatory black man--> white women

Or the Hillary "Girl Power" supporters.


Anyways, I hope that she called back Barack and accepted his apology.
