The world's gone mad, it as getting that one is afraid to open one's mouth or write anything in fear of upsetting the do gooders.
Just stop the world and let me get off.
Thinks I'll just stay here where neighbourhood is still the done thing, keeping quiet.

Just wait until they do the "man" thing - chairman becomes chair person etc - on colour.

We could start a whole new thread on PC alternatives for words like blackmail and whitewash.

Also, perhaps we could stop cries like "Come on you blues" - that's awfully offensive for smurfs.

I can't cope. If I'd a £ (a € would be better :lol: ) for every man who'd insulted me on my way up from student days to company director, Fellow of a Royal Institution and boss in a male dominated field I'd be a lot better off than I am now.
For dog's sake, PC has gone completeeeely mad.
I was treated as inferior to men at every step on the way, and so were my female friends in other fields (eg apprentice engineer at Ford's in Essex). We fought back, quietly and with the best tools you can have : be better than them, but accept that sometimes you just can't win. In which case step back, learn from your experiences and move on a lot the wiser....
YES people might insult you, use you, bully you and touch you where they shouldn't. That's life.
Just make sure that the person you choose to spend your private life with is the right one, the one you'll love forever and whatever, and he/she in return.
