Re: Toxic masculinity out of style thanks to men in skirts

Scot, I’ve tried to tread carefully around the gun debate. But when Al wades in with certain comments, it’s hard not to respond. Why did I not add my comments to those of my contact? For the very reasons Al cited. I am not in a position to add weight to the comments because I’ve not been in the US f...

Re: Toxic masculinity out of style thanks to men in skirts

Al, Try to actually read my post next time. I was passing on an observation from someone with five years’ experience in Louisiana. Five. Not 30 days. Not my view. Someone else’s. Is that clear? As for the banning of firearms creating a dictatorship. That’s one of the silliest things I’ve read in a w...

Re: Toxic masculinity out of style thanks to men in skirts

ScotL, Good point abbot the Tutsis. I stand corrected. I used a bad example. Japan? You’re citing an example which is 80 years old. Yet my point remains. Being male doesn’t make you toxic or similar, as Jamie suggests. I’m not seeking to bash the US. I’m responding to two very silly posts. I certain...

Re: Toxic masculinity out of style thanks to men in skirts

Al - FFS, just calm down. Live your little perversion with weapons. Other countries manage just fine without firearms to defend their feeble insecurities. Jamie - FFS, get real. A huge amount of cultures around the world exhibit near-impeccable behaviour of men. You don’t see Japanese red necks. You...

Re: Toxic masculinity out of style thanks to men in skirts

There was another massacre in California yesterday by a man. Men are the root cause of almost all violent crimes. The only way to resolve this problem is for men to accept that femininity is the way, discard masculinity what is almost useless, and adopt feminine ways, attitudes, and clothing styles...

Great to hear, Steve. I love hearing of encounters like this. Bet you were floating on air afterwards!

Re: Have you still got your first skirt?

Yes, I still have it. It’s been worn over 1,000 times since I bought it in 1997. It’s dark grey, 18 inches long (45cm), stretchy waist. Bought from Marks & Spencer for £18. The elastic is not quite as energetic as it used to be, but it’s still going strong. I still wear it from time to time - about ...

Re: How to trigger everyone at once

Mine comes mostly from the roof, with a big slug of power coming from renewables.

As it should be.

Re: How to trigger everyone at once

We have induction hobs powered by solar panels. The ovens are also electric.

Gas was great, but it’s a fossil fuel. Best left in the ground to help avoid the worst excesses of climate change / pollution.

Re: What floats your boat for hobbies ...

Tom, I’m near Henley in Arden. No regatta like the other Henley, but more wine ;-)

You are welcome any time - even though your schedule may be tight.

Re: What floats your boat for hobbies ...

Tom, next time you’re over, drive about 20 miles east, pop in, and we’ll walk only three miles each way to a cracking pub - or have a go at reducing the vinous stockpile ;-)

You may not be able to drive back….

Re: What floats your boat for hobbies ...

Cycling. I have 4 bikes and love seeing the countryside firsthand. Hillwalking. Climbing mountains in Scotland is a joy. Fine wine. I have a reasonable collection numbering over 1,500. My tastes are varied, from Australia to USA (and all points between) and from a £9 (US$11) basic wine to, well, rat...

Re: Dresses?

Nope, dresses and night shirts are not my thing. Same with pyjamas. I got frustrated years (and years and years) ago with feeling all tied up in bed. If it's a cold night (which in QLD we won't have again until at least mid April) I pull over the thin summer weight doona... Same here. I wear clothi...
