    We live in an androgenous world where some people describe themselves as ‘it’

    There’s far too much choice today and people get confused – ask any old East German.

    A statement like ” I think women jockeys should be supported ” can be taken two ways. There is far too much discourse today. I am a mute as I wear a rubber half mask and face shield when out and it so happened a woman shop assistant was curious yesterday and actually spoke to the alien. “Can you breathe she asked ?’ I spoke but she seemed to raise her voice and said ” I cant HEAR YOU ” at which I gave her a thumbs up which made her look confused.

    Adam Wedge is a man’s man, he doesn’t get “man flu”

    Adam Wedge has manned up and issued an apology.

    The fact Wedge has had to apologise to the permanently offended who use twitter is ridiculous. It was a harmless turn of phrase and he said nothing wrong.

    It is ridiculous indeed. Not as ridiculous as that Sam Smith geezer wanting to be referred to as them, though. Glad I’m not growing up in a world where such nonsense abounds.

    It would be interesting to know how many people actually complained. I bet it was less than double figures.

    Just when is all this PC nonsense going to stop?
    Who is going to make a stand because if you do in isolation, your literally shot down, career ended, vilified.

    Seems to be the opposite GSP on this particular forum topic.

    Well, again we are the silent majority appears, but what force is out there keeping us quiet, the media.

    I think a “man’s ride” is nothing to do with women. it is a left over expression from many years ago (possibly before women were even allowed to ride). Meaning the horse is an established jockey’s ride. ie A “man’s” ride rather than a conditional “boy’s” ride.

    I knew what he meant. He knew what He meant. Totally unoffensive.
    Now if People would stop saying “Listen” and “Look” in every utterance….

    Presumably we’ll never hear again that a horse “ran” for the “feminine touch”?
    If we do, there will have to be an investigation.

    I see Maddy Playle based her column in the Weekender on Adam Wedge’s comments and on how bad they were. How disappointing? I’m glad I don’t buy that rag any more, maybe she needs the publicity or worse still, maybe she truly believes it?

    I’m glad to live in a world where people are free to express themselves in such ways rather than being criminalised for it. It’s just a shame that they have to put up with the professionally outraged who feel the need to question it despite their decision to be referred to as he/she/it/them or whatever else having absolutely no effect anyone else’s life in any way.

    That’s fair enough, Richard, or do you prefer to be called Dick?

    I’d like to be referred to as Sir from now on – Cheers

    Mr. Smith has also said he wants to be a mummy :wacko: He’s a man and therefore cannot ever be a mummy. People who pander to him are doing him no favours imo
