Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

Let's be clear: we're not talking about a major railway terminus with queues for toilets, this is a tiny Cumbrian halt with few trains after 6.30 anyway. No there aren't any homeless people (sorry if that sounds elitist, but I've never seen any). Those cabins mentioned which open after a specific ti...

Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

Sorry Sonic - was a sort-of joke to finish off with. I think there MAY still be a longstanding law that says UK railway stations have to provide toilets for each gender seperately. Also, I've learnt from the woman who runs it that one idea is to move people as quickly as they can - she says, in fun,...

Taurwen - yes mutual appreciation society! No wasn't accusing you of claiming my ideas as your own - fortunately they're not original anyway. Do wish SOMETHING was done to make our lives less problematic though - not sure what - which is I guess part of the whole problem!

Why are men so ready to complain...

...when they THINK that for once they're getting a bad deal? [Warning : maybe a touch tmi!] The cafe in our local train station has got fed up with vandalism, especially in the toilets in the evening. So they've re-done them to give just one stall in the Ladies, and one urinal in the Gents. Fair eno...

Jeans with holes in. What's the point? I can tear holes in my jeans if I want - in fact I'd happily do it to anyone's jeans for £10 a time!

Re: Women's self defense

I've never taken an official one. But as a kid I got a bunch through school and brownies and such but those were about how to defend yourself as a child. In high school one of the Phys Ed sections was two weeks of defense (the only part of phys Ed that wasn't a waste of my time). I felt that was ve...

Re: Yuck Yuck Yuck - continued from "Ranting"

Taurwen I think we're generally in agreement - especially as you've finished with really what I was saying be4 about rules - there are places where men can approach me if they're so inclined (goodness knows why they want to!), but not on the street. Yes women not approaching us is a good point - I k...

Re: Yuck Yuck Yuck - continued from "Ranting"

I think there's a distinct difference between being afraid of men (which I'm not) and being afraid of men who approach me when I'm by myself (meaning not only am I personally alone but there's no one else around). I'm also pissed off that politeness dictates that I talk back to a man who is talking...

Taurwen, that's horrible. But you're right - most guys don't realise how terrifying they can be. A few times I've had "sorry I'm not worrying you am I?" as if they want to show their caring side. That on the face of it is good, BUT what am I supposed to say? "Well actually you are, I'...

Had more to say and I felt this title on "Ranting" had turned into a pro and anti- guns diatribe. Anyway my comments are feminist in nature. Just to say that following my "gent on the bus" post ("Yuck yuck yuck" on Ranting), friends and colleagues have come out of the w...

A man on the bus this morning gave up his seat for me - OK I thought maybe he's just an old fashioned "gent" - but then he stood over me STARING yes STARING at my cleavage. Every time I looked he looked away. I wasn't on there long so got up to get off and accidentally on purpose pushed hi...

Double-standard or not, I'm afraid that as a woman I would NEVER rely on a man to remember to take a pill. I mean, let's face it, my partner can't even "remember" to take a pill when he's got a headache :) !
