I am not saying it is something intentional, but drama queen is or at least can be seen as sexist. Maybe a popcorn icon with just "drama" instead.

I've never heard the claim that Drama Queen is a sexist comment.

I think it enforces a stereotype. People sometimes use the term to detract from a woman's right to voice an opinion or to react.

I don't see see the harm in changing it.

If you look around, you'll find the rating has been given to more men than women on TAZ :D

You are looking for things where they don't exist. Stop begin so sensitive.

I also think that the Pure Genius smiley should be removed, since it looks like a dude (Einstein), enforcing a stereotype that only dudes can be geniuses. I feel this holds my gender to a higher standard than I feel comfortable with.

Can we have a Gender Draft, like that one Chapelle skit? I think we'd all agree we're cool with "Drama King."

I agree
We'd never have smiley like this on our forum as well or we'd get complaints its offensive
I think Jura's idea of popcorn is good

Well I'm actually upset by most of the post ratings as they depict bald people, what about us with hair? Why are you singling us out?! I feel like burning something down!!!
