    Did these offended female musicians also start a petition to get the bands Pussy Riot or Nashville Pussy to change their names?

    The products name offended a random self proclaimed "guitarist" that decided to read the product description anyway.

    At least pussy grabbing is still in vogue.

    I can kinda see it from the offended women's points of view, but it is obviously a joke in a parody world. I can see their point because it's an official TC Electronic's patch available for download. However, when she says its used to market the product, that's wrong. Toneprints are like patches. It's a custom setup that you can download if you wish.

    It really is stupid language to use, but also an obvious, over-the-top joke. I'm moreso inclined to say, "don't listen to the band and don't use the TonePrint," but at the same time never found the humor in making "pussies wet." Now, I wouldn't be offended if there was a TonePrint called "CockCrusher," but there isn't any history behind it...

    Summary of my thoughts: yeah, it's pretty sexist, but it's just vulgar humor. She probably has a petition to get South Park off the air as well.

    I'm offended that she likes to use the word fuck. She used it in one of her earlier Canada Day posts and I'm offended by context in which she used it. She should be banned from fucking for an entire year and pussy sown shut.

    On the other hand. The Pussy Melter is orgasmicly fan- f u c k i n gtastic.

    If doing an apology it should read more like this.

    Our company is ashamed that we used the term "pussy" in our product description. We were led to believe that the "pussy" in question was referring to a cat. As it turns out we are horrified that "pussy" in fact it was a sexual reference referring to a womans vagina and not a "pussy"cat. The term is not seemingly derogatory but actually "pussy" is warmly received to the overwhelming number of men in the rock and roll industry. Still it is slang and we will remove its reference. In researching this we also found other terms such as snatch, twat, cunt, wizard sleeves, honeypot, dew petals, fish tank, Box, Muff, Kitty, Cooch, Cooter, Snapper, Beaver, Poon, Gash, Banana basket, Juice box, Pink panther, Bikini bizkit, Penis fly trap, Vertical smile, Furburger, Bearded clam, Sausage wallet, Meat curtains, Pink taco or even Axe wound.
    Even though we are sorely tempted to name products with monikers such as Wizard sleeve, vertical smile, sausage wallet, or Axe wound we will go through all product descriptions and remove anything even smelling of "pussy". Let alone Axe wound, cooch, beaver, gash and twat. We are very sensitive to our women customers who in their entire rock and roll career had never had to deal with any of these terms or the people who might use them.
    Once again we are sorry if you have been offended.

    Hey but anyway. I remain optimistic the next cultural movements and generation will be a little more pragmatic than our times.

    Oh for fuck's sake! I'm getting really fed up with all this far-left, uber-PC, SJW, Snowflake, bullshit, insanity that seems to be taking over our culture lately!

    I have to avoid reading shit like this when I stumble across it out on the web, because it'll just piss me off for an hour and a half and it makes me truly fear the future.

    I'm not a big fan of lavatory humor, and "Pussy Melter" may have been in bad taste, but so what?? Get over it. This shouldn't ruin anyone's life! There are far too many people out there these days who want to make hurting their feelings, or offending their delicate sensibilities a litigiously actionable offense! They're perpetually on the lookout for anything that can even vaguely be construed as "offensive".

    And when you're looking for something, you're always going to find it... Even if you have to use pretzel logic to get there.

    These people are very disillusioned and resentful, because their mommies and daddies told them they were 'special' all their lives, and they hovered around them like helicopters, so they'd never get a skinned knee, or have to suffer any of the other minor indignities that come with being alive. All the while they were told that they were "unique", and entitled to all the best things in life just for being who they are.

    Many were quite unpleasantly surprised when they went out into the real world and discovered that they weren't gonna get any more trophies just for showing up... The painful realization that not a single fuck is given about their 'feels', or how 'unique' they are is almost too much to bear for a lot of them. Maybe if they were allowed to fall off their bikes once in a while, or endure some constructive criticism every now and then, they might not have ended up such an angry mass of neurosis with victim mentality.

    Honestly, I don't know how you can go through life like that... Always angry, always offended (with an ample supply of axes to grind).. How can you have friends or relationships when every little thing sets you off? How can you function when your main priority is finding offence, and figuring out how you're a 'victim' in every situation?

    But what scares me the most is; these are the people who will be running the world in a few years.

    [Edit]

    Actually, I take that back... All these people have liberal arts degrees, so they'll all probably end up homeless....

    Oh wait... Was that offensive??

    Great response. So well crafted, I need not to add. Only that, written in red, is precisely the plan.

    This is damned funny. There's a few I haven't even heard. Wizard sleeve!

    It's funny to know that some of these descriptive words are very derogatory, while some are quite endearing, in my view.

    Such a wonderful organ. I like to refer to it as it is: A damn fine Miracle!

    Thank you, Lawd.
