She risks wearing leggings FFSroflrofl, do you sit at home watching "Are you being served", "Carry on Perving", "Confessions of a Window Licker" and tut away whilst trying to pretend that men are throwing sexist comments at every bloody woman in a skirt?:confused:

The odd couple is a better film for you IMO.
No wrong again. You're either on a wind up, not reading very accurately, or you're being thick. Probably the first out of these, I hope.

A salutary lesson that I had as a twenty odd year old was when I got a bit cheeky at work a few young and a couple of middle-aged women held me down sprayed me with perfume, covered me in lipstick and threatened worse!
No doubt in todays crazy world I would have gone crying to my boss complaining that I had been assaulted.
You could still probably sue for compensation!! You're very likely to have suffered from PTSD ever since and your employer's failure to offer you counselling at the time is negligent, to say the least. That abuse / attack, could have led to a life long fear of women, loneliness & depression..............................continues for many more pages & ends with lawyers getting richer & richer in a mad world :D

You've just given me an idea!

You see, I don't get why Phwoar is an issue except perhaps on an unlit road at midnight. Comments at work suggesting sex though are a totally different matter. In my experience most women are more than capable of giving back a sight more than they get.

People are slagging off hughbee but he's making fair points. Most women I know have been sexually harassed regularly just walking down the street and only last Monday I was walking down the road and saw two girls who were clearly about 15 at most being harassed by a group of blokes in a car which slowed down to make comments at them, then ****ed off when I said something. What he's talking about happens.

I very much doubt most of the blokes on here slagging off hughbee would be so happy if their daughters etc told them they were subject to this kind of thing from blokes.

In the first office I worked in there was a typing pool - this was the 70s- and walking through it was bloody frightening as many of the ladies working there would grab your goolies as you walked past. The whole place was like a Carry On film and blokes would goose women and twang bra straps at will. My wife put up with this sort of stuff working in a City bank. It wasn't clever in those days and I had believed things were more civilised now. Hughbee is correct to point out that this hasn't been totally eradicated but I believe he lives in Norfolk where it is probably still 1975.

In the early 80's my wife worked on the metal exchange and it was compulsory to wear a skirt and heals if you were female. Not the point that some of the guys joined in as well. Times we will not see again

I worked in a division of the Rank Organization and had a very similar experience.

It does happen in the opposite direction though that doesn't make it right. I think its all a matter of degree.
If its threatening, demeaning, or insulting then its unacceptable.
Its happened since we were all living in caves, its in virtually every society except possibly in places like Saudi where women are treated like sh*t.
As I said earlier before the thread became sidetracked, what Moyes said was threatening and ungentlemanly.
A bit of gentle banter though shouldn't upset anyone.

Hmmm, this thread having taken a very peculiar turn (only read page 7, tbf), I wonder if I might bring it back on topic by quoting an excerpt from DM's wiki page which I for one found interesting:

"Moyes is a devout Christian who would often discuss religion with Alan Comfort and Graham Daniels, although he is often reluctant to talk about his faith in interviews.
He is a supporter of the Labour Party and in 2010 backed Andy Burnham to be leader in the Labour Party leadership election.
In April 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Moyes accepted a 30% cut to his salary as West Ham looked to retain jobs allowing them to pay 100% of non-playing staff salaries. He left London during the pandemic and worked in his home village in Lancashire delivering fruit and vegetables to those in need."

[Mods may delete the Labour Party reference if contravening the "No politics" rule]
