Transcript Random House College Dictionary - Depends on How You Look At It ?• Houston Post, August 20, 1976, Austin (AP) - "A woman shed tears Thursday over vulgar words in a dictionary,proposed for Texas high schools,...because it contained numerous slang expressions for sexual intercourse (etc.)...After reading several others in their scatalogical meanings, she choked up.'I'm not going to read any more,' she sobbed." A check of the Random House dictionary shows that the sort of slang words mentioned above are, usually, accurately and nbjectively defined. What is obscene about the book is its sexist bias. Although words insulting ethnic groups are cited as offensive, this term is not applied to words grossly offensive to or contemptuous of women. Such words don't even merit the disparaging label given to "honky." Instead, for example, "tail" is cooly defined as "12...coitus, or a woman considered as an object of coitus" while "cunt" is "slang (usually vulgar) 1. the vagina. 2. a woman, especially as an object of sex." In general,words used disparagingly of men are not described in that sense, and there are significant imbalances in definitions of what should be equivalent terms. While a bachelor is simply "an unmarried man," a spinster is "a woman beyond the usual age for marrying and still unmarried." Such examples abound, but the following comments on "female" and "male" will serve to show how it's done. A few tears of rage might be in order: fem., I. female. 2. feminine. female (fit'tiiM), //. 1, ;i human ln-Ini* <>f the wx th.it ron- reives and bears yountr; a worn m <>r uirl. 2. any animal of corresponding sex. cither hearing living you tiff <>r nroducitiff <rns. 3.

Department WASHINGTON - The Senate Thursday voted 88-0 to exempt father-son and mother-daughter school activities from federal sex discrimination laws. The unanimous vote followed debate in which Sen. Birch Bayh, D-Ind., praised federal efforts against sex discrimination but called recent rulings against traditional all-male or all-female school social activities **the most idiotic I have ever beard of." The provision approved Thursday is an amendment to a pending six-year, $35.3 billion education and vocational assistance authorization bill. It applies to sex discrimination rulings issued by the Health, Education and Welfare Department and follows controversial. HEW bans against father-son functions and all-boy chorale groups in schools. President Ford recently ordered HEW to rescind its ruling that father-son and mother-daughter functions were sexually discriminatory. The overall Senate bill, once passed, would have to go to the House for action. The sexual discrimination exemption states that traditional father-son and mother-daughter school functions are permissable so long as the. school offers "opportunities for reasonably comparable activities ... for students of the other sex." The amendment, offered by Sen. Paul Fannin, R-Ariz., also exempts American Legion youth organizations — including Boys State, Boys Nation, Girls State and Girls Nation — from sex discrimination laws. *Jhe Houston P<w / FRIDAY, AUG. 27, 1976 Coach's Corner: Little-known Facts The emotion carries over into team unity, what you often hear men players say is lacking on their team. It takes five to ten years for most men's teams to develop the kind of rapport the Dandelions had last year, claims Edwards. "We can also tell when a woman has been out partying or dancing too late. We can't tell that with a man, but we can tell if he's spent the night with a woman. That kind of activity really takes the edge off a man and he's subpar on the field. That's why fighters are kept away from home six weeks to two months. However, you just don't know that with a woman. "You.know, with men in most sports there are the stars who feel they should have special privileges," he adds. "What I really like about the women is that even with the ones who have superior talent, there are no showoffs, no prima donnas. Everyone is willing to pull her share."($) —WomenSports
