Kid, you're exactly the sort of faux-macho chest-beater that necessitates feminism in the first place, every time you decide to go off on one of your alpha-male scent-markings. If you wanna be part of the big boy club, don't go being offended because they expect you to act like an adult. No one is asking you to stop cracking jokes, but demanding that everyone laugh at everything you laugh at will just drive them all away. Then all that's left is you and your oh-so-edgy comedy routine. And where's the fun in that. Boy, that sure sounds obnoxious and condescending, doesn't it? Now imagine if that were the subtext of a sizeable chunk of things people said to and around you. Lovely. I'm offended by the original poll option and absolutely disgusted by this response. And I do possess a penis. Not that it should matter, but for some reason you seem immensely preoccupied with your fellow developers' genitalia.

    You're the only person that has mention penii or the size of anything.

    Which just seems appropriate some how.

      The plural of the Latin penis is actually penes because it's a third declension noun. The -i plural form is for second declension nouns (which have a singular ending in -us).

      Though penises would be considered the more usual English plural of the word.

      package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
