    I have managed to seriously offend somebody by asking them whether they need to be at

    a meeting.

    I was being nice- I know full well they don't need to be there.

    Bloody lezzas

    You can't say anything to women these days without being accused of mansplaining, p.

    What they appear to mean by 'mansplaining' is 'being told why they're wrong'.

    I discovered this to the case at the weekend. The topic was 'the correct way in which to negotiate a roundabout'.

    I think the accusation is that I was downplaying their significance to the process (as I do with all women). Naturally I am hurt at such an accusation and now feel as though I am being attacked.

    The two chaps who dressed up as the Williams' sisters got off. They had a photo of themselves with a black bloke who 'found it funny' . All a bit Father Ted.....

    Meetings are funny, though. Most of us would crawl over broken glass to avoid them, but the minute someone feels they're being excluded from one, they lose their sht.

    Excellent use of the black friend defence. We all need to keep an entourage of handy minority types around to get us out of the sht on these occasions.

    Can someone get Amla out now, please? I'm getting a bit uncomfortable about this chase.

    In all fairness you don't give the impression of being particularly keen on women overall. Obviously I'd hate to judge before all the facts are in but it might not be beyond the realms of possibility that some of your latent, erm, misogyny pops out to the surface now and again. I have never had the mansplaining word directed at me be any of my lady-on-lady-action colleagues when I am explaining how certain things work.

    No offence, like. I wouldn't want you to have to relive your experience of being under attack all over again.

    What MASSIVELY fcks me off about it is that it's treated by certain specimens of womankind as a surefire excuse to stop listening and carry on doing things completely fcking wrong. It is the most idiotic and childish idea, based as it is on the nonsensical notion that women are always right.

    I think p is a misanthrope rather than a misogynist. He's an equal-opportunity miserable cnt.

    Love you, p

    Oh, and you probably don't get the mansplaining thing because you have an acknowledged area of expertise.

    Yes, they're really being rather tiresome about the whole thing, aren't they? Not really playing the game at all.

    Mind you, if you saw what the ball was doing earlier, this knock by Amla is pretty bloody impressive.
