Crewsy Fixer
I read a post earlier on another thread on GG, the post claimed that some people had been put off by the level of sexism on GG, I was surprised to read that, and looked for evidence, there is not a lot of evidence that the GG boards are mainly sexist.

But, if it is, then I think there should be a thread for blokes only, where blokes can be free to be blokes, no brunettes or blondes in mini skirts to get in the way. A place for blokey things. No girlie chat just blokeyness.

Im off to the toilet, with a newspaper and I dont care whether the seat is up or down when I leave.

You know, of course, that the title of this thread will act as a magnet fur aw the wimmin oan the board? biggrin.gif

Hence the adjoiner Benny, if you dont like it stay out, are ye up for a pint anyway.
Dunvegan
Not much in the way of sexism on the postings, not that I can see. I am totally opposed to any discrimination although radical femmes have called me sexist from time to time. All male tribalism and separatism has connotations that I find distinctly unpleasant. I have also been accused of being "macho" because of my interests, and do believe that political correctness in this matter is a stifling barrier to good relationships, but I cant countenance the separation of the sexes for any reason other than personal privacy. A world without women is a world without meaning.

Naw ah'm afraid ma drinkin days are long over. The very occasional pint of Guiness or a coupla haufs at New Year are ma limit nooadays. sad.gif

Nothin' worse than havin' tae look into the gapin' maw of an uncovered toilet. rolleyes.gif
Other than that, my bathroom/toilet is like a library (Mary has her own Ladies room so no fall-outs over mags and books in the bogs)

I've been over 2 years on GG and fail to see anything sexist (other than maybe in the Jokes topic) on GG boards. Where did you find the complaining post?

I've just added a Sabre Saw (710 Watts; 180 rotating grip; 0 - 2800 strokes per minute; 160mm max wood cut; 8mm max steel cut) to my collection of saws so now I have a petrol driven Chain Saw, an Electric chain saw, a circular saw, a band saw, and an electric fret saw ... not to mention a hand held carpenters saw and a hacksaw.
I'm sure I've missed one out ...
Oh, and three hedge trimmers but they're not really saws are they? rolleyes.gif

We badly needed a blokes thread here. tongue.gif

I had a look in the Old F-F-F-Firm T-T-Topic; which in truth I guessed would be where those sexist remarks would be found (if not in the Jokes Topic) but I'll be buggered if I could find them.

"Stay in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant ," syndrome.

Very cute, Crewsy. You put this out for blokes only knowing every nosy female, including myself, will take a peek. Ah well - just as I suspected. Without women to set you guys on the right path you come up with inane rubbish. It's enough to make us lasses feel superior. But then we knew that already. tongue.gif biggrin.gif

Why dont the wummin invent something thats useful, like a lightbulb or a phone, even a telly.

Whos got a shed, Ive not but I want a shed. Im going to build one myself. because there is no way that any of the wumminfolk in my life could, or would want to, build me a shed.

I remember the first time I saw mrs Crewsys glasses off, and said godsake you look 10 years younger without your glasses on.

I suffered for that one honest remark.

It's a little known fact that it wis a wummin that invented the muzzle, but she went an spoiled her idea by insistin it could only be used fur dugs. smile.gif

Nothing sneaky about me wee davy.......


Mr. Dunvegan is quite the gentleman, isn't he? wub.gif

As for tools; I was a ships Joiner and for many years a lines service man and fault locator for Telecom. I am also a a tool freak and when being asked if I need assistance in a tool store always reply;
"if you see me going for my credit card, hit my wrist with a stillson wrench"
As I rebuilt my first house and did all work except electrical I have a foll gamut of tools; mechanical, more wood work tools than you can poke a bent stick at, gardening tools that go beyond needs, model making tools, and I am going to Sydney next week to look at some more. I am also thinking of trying to get treatment for this condition. My wife because I make and repair everything does not object to me buying tools.
I do need help!!!!
wee davy
lol ahh wunner if there are special clinics oot there fer this condition?

it kin certainly lighten yer pocket!

you kin go oot fer a new screwdriver - and come back wi a chain saw - ask THEE lol laugh.gif (or in my case, a new cordless drill rolleyes.gif )

In our town there is "The Mens Shed"; not a pub, but a fully equiped workshop, voluntarily operated, where those who dont have sheds, or can't afford to buy the tools, can use this facility at very little cost to go to and repair, make things, use up scrap materials and basically get away from it all. It's a bloke thing, but it in many ways reinforces family life and social values.

Why dont the wummin invent something thats useful






Martha Coston
Signal flares used by ships, 1826-1904

Dr. Grace Murray Hopper
COBOL computer language, 1906-1992

Gertrude Belle Elion
Anti-Leukemia drugs, 1918-1999

Mary Anderson invented the windshield wiper. Anderson was issued a patent for the wipers in 1905.

Marie Curie also known as Madame Curie discovered radium and furthered x-ray technology.


Dorothy Hodgkin used x-rays to find the structural layouts of atoms and to discover the overall molecular shape of over 100 molecules including: penicillin, vitamin B-12, vitamin D and insulin.

Lastly, a particularly useful device.....Mary Phelps Jacob invented the bra.

I think that's enough to be going on with huh? tongue.gif
