grumpy old men club - sexist?

Post by pablo on Wed Nov 05, 2014 5:14 pm

rolleyes The fairer sex, having over the years by burning of bras, street marches, legislation, wearing of silly Tshirts by Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg etc etc, have gained admittance to previously male only institutions.
 ASOF Grumpy Old Men Club is probably now the last bastion of male only membership in the UK. To my knowledge there has been no complaint to Admin - funny that.

Hi there,

I'm ducking out of this one!  Whistle1 Whistle1 Whistle1 

Best of luck.

PS

Seen on a toilet door back in the 60's ....

"My mother made me a queer!"

.... and underneath ....

"If I bought her the wool would she knit me one?"

It's not sexist and back then it was considered funny; but I suspect that nowadays it would be classed as homophobic and thousands of pounds would be spent cleaning it off the toilet door.

Changed world eh? tap_fingers tap_fingers

We could always call it 

'The grumpy old men & ladies club' 

As repoort says all sections are open to everybody anyway but it might just make this section more inviting to those 'Rare' ladies that like to have a good moan (that's if they exist) winks

No we cannot call it, "The grumpy old men & ladies club"

Firstly, you have not capitalised where you should have.

Secondly, if the title is to include "men", then it should include "women", most definitely not, "ladies"

However if the title is to include "ladies", then it should include "gentlemen", most definitely not "men"

Just being pedantic (and a bit grumpy).
