Gender bender — 22 Comments

  1. I thought all this gender insanity was only over here.  I'm sorry to hear you also have to deal with it.

    • As you can see from my links, there's an epidemic over here and spreading faster than Ebola.  The WHO should step in to stop the spread, but then that seems to be run by women?

  2. I have no idea what the hell you are saying. I hear the words. Nothing makes any sense. It's all mad.

    You are either guy or a girl.

    Is that really so difficult to understand?

    If you don't agree then you are a mental.


    • It is really quite simple.  You are either a man or a woman.  Or a man who wants to be a woman or a woman who wants to be a man.  Or maybe you're both or neither.  Or maybe someone who decides whether to be a man or a woman when you wake up in the morning.  Or not.  

      Couldn't be any simpler?

    Same as that, GD. My wife was watching a video clip on her laptop earlier this evening about that bloke who decided he wanted to be a woman (Jenner or something?), and everyone interviewed was gushing on about how brave and amazing he/she was, and isn't it wonderful, etc etc, ad nauseam.

    What the fuck? Some bloke decides he wants to pretend he's a woman, and we're all supposed to congratulate him? I couldn't give a monkey's what the guy wants to do, but I certainly won't be 'celebrating' his personal peccadilloes. Who cares?

    But now, of course, they have to be 'recognised'. What bullshit. What egotistical garbage. Do what the fuck you want, guys and gals, but don't expect me to be standing on the sidelines clapping and throwing bouquets. I think you are weird, frankly, but if that's what turns you on, so be it, I don't mind. We all have our quirks. It's just that most of us don't air them publicly and expect people to endorse them.

    • My point exactly.  Fair play to 'em for doing whatever they want – it's a free world after all [or it used to be] – but I just wish they could do it all quietly without all this celebration lark.  They even wanted to paint a couple of pedestrian crossings the colours of the rainbow in Dublin.  What the fuck?

      Of course yet more floodgates are about to be opened in Ireland with the the first "gay marriages" taking place next week.  Doubtless the papers will be full of pictures of the happy couples?  Funny how they never printed a photograph of me when I got married?

  4. Here's another one that's been around for quite awhile:

    adjective: androgynous

    Partly male and partly female in appearance; of indeterminate sex.

    Something like this?


    • They are the ones to be very careful of.  Rather embarrassing to hop into the sack with a beautiful woman only to find hers is bigger than yours?

      P.S. You included a link to a video but the link has vanished.  I checked it off the email and it can only be viewed in the States anyway.  Sorry.  🙁

  5. Well, I agree, but on the other hand I definitely applied a' gender quota' to the partnership when I decided to get married.

  6. It's all gone mad. I was having a chat to my 87 year old grandfather yesterday when the 6-1 news came on and they started talking about this stuff. His reaction was brilliant.  Annoyance mixed with bafflement.  I felt sorry for him in a way. The world has changed so much since he was my age and here it is changing again to the ludicrously extreme to facilitate what he probably quite rightly thinks are absolute idiots and lunatics.  It makes me really worry about what kind of madness I’ll have to live through at that age.

    • I may still be only a puppy compared to your grandfather, but it frightens me how much the world has changed in my lifetime.  There seems to been a "dumbing down" of society where the trivial has become top of the agenda and the important things in life are just forgotten.  Happiness is now defined as the number of "likes" you have on Facebook, and success is having your cheesy video go "viral".  And don't even start me on the mess politics has become!

  7. This “dumbing down” of society that you mention is absolutely true and it’s most definitely not accidental.  It’s artificially generated by both companies and government if in fact they aren’t the same thing.  Companies want everyone to want what they are selling. Governments want people to buy and sell because they earn more in taxes. This has the knock on benefit for governments of distracting people from the important things so that more decisions can be made without major public disturbance.

    • Indeed.  We have obviously reached the stage where we can't think for ourselves, and the government has to do all our thinking for us.  We can't be allowed to damage ourselves?

  8. Mitigation against potential issues to protect against liability and to maximise profits. That’s what it all boils down to.  As you’ve said yourself. Governments will shoe horn or rankle us down a defined path to reduce risk that we’ll be a burden and to maximize the profit we can make for them.  This direction started in the 1950’s I think. I don’t go for conspiracy theories but I do think that our capacity for real creative and independent thought has diminished. One of the reasons for this I believe is the tone of music.  Take a look at this very rational explination: OR if you’re interested: I think this source is a bit dramatic but it has a point:

    • Wow!  I had to delay replying as you gave quite a lot of research.  Interesting stuff.  I even tried modifying some of my favourite tracks using Audacity.  I'm not quite sure if I am completely convinced, yet…….

  9. Boys will be boys. Some girls will be hardworking and clever and get ahead of boys. Which means boys will have to smarten up a bit. Let's leave male-female gender differences as simple as that. Psychology theory can be as silly as social research.

    • Some people are good at some things while others are good at other things.  people should be employed by their abilities and suitability not by their gender.

  10. Shame on you pretending to be a grandad when it's obvious that you are in fact a grandma with all this postmenopausal ranting going off. There is HRT available you know. Any way why don't you go and get your old man's tea ready, the old fella must be starving by now.Yours sincerely Mr Daphne Flowerbed.

    • Fuck!  Rumbled!

      I tried the HRT but it left me premenstrual all the time.  Himself left me so I quit the tablets.
