Males - Is it Time to Stop Insulting Women Using Derogatory Sexual Terms?

 Joey Casselberry has been kicked off his college baseball team because he called 14-year-old female Little League World Series phenom Mo'ne Davis an SLUT.

Males think they can demean a female by referring to them in a derogatory manner using terms that don't even exist for men when it comes to their sexuality. What is the word for a male slut, or whore?

For instance, what if a commentator wanted to call the men's team at Rutgers a name comparable to Don Imus calling the women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos?" No term exists.

While men seem to not find anything wrong with constantly referring to women as such, is the time coming when we will understand as a society the link with sexism and misogyny?
