The term Attention Whore

Well, I have been around DU a long time. I don't post too often, but this is a first to me. Apparently it is ok to refer to Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin {none of whom I like or have any respect for} and a host of other right wing women as Media Whores as found by google search, but call Media Benjamin and Dennis Kucinich media whores ( Spending time on Fox News trashing the President and Democrats) and your post gets hidden by a 4-2 jury vote.

I was certainly not referring to Ms Benjamin or Mr Mr Kucinich sexuality, but their willingness to say anything to get on TV, even Fox.

Is it ok to use the term media whore when talking of a man and not ok when talking of a woman. I used the term in a gender neutral way by mentioning them both.

What is a better term to use?
