Double standard for southern belles

Seems that if you are a black congressman and you call a male Caucasian "whitey," that's OK. If you are a member of Congress and violate the rules, that's OK.

If you are a member of the clergy and you violate a minor's rights, that's OK.

But, if you are a southern female, and you say something off base, that's a violation of the civil rights movement.

Sounds like somebody has their hook in the wrong fish.
