Do you actually think "special ed teacher" is an insult? Do you think SpEd is inferior teachers teaching inferior kids?
Thank you, Manda JO. He directed that gem at me. I started to respond in a similar vein as you did (though perhaps not as
well) but decided a) he's not going to recognize his own ignorance and b) he's especially unlikely to change it if a woman is making the argument:

Similarly, feminists want to be treated like a man...except, you know, for having to work a dangerous job like a man, face the military draft like a man, or face the criminal justice system as a man.
And, uh, they [women] voluntarily avoid most of the dangerous jobs they aren't being blocked from entering. You know, truck driving and oil rigs and logging and so on.
