Which feminists? I'm a feminist and I don't want to ban anything.

GoblinGranny Sat 11-May-13 06:03:26

Well I'm a feminist and I hate fried egg sandwiches. But I don't want them banned as others enjoy them and....here's the key point....they don't harm anyone.
I do object to things that ate harmful to me and to others being permitted.

Assuming because in their/our opinion these things are harmful to other women, especially girls. Why ^ wouldn't^ you want something banned you felt was actively harmful? Unless you're all talk and no trousers.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 06:11:20

And yes, often banning things is exactly the best way forward.
I'm sure you'll argue that correlation isn't causation

I am a feminist and I would like to ban seagulls.

I'm a feminist and I'd like to ban people who don't indicate.

I would like to ban sun dried tomatoes

Oh and olives.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 21:00:59

yeah chuck em in with the sun dried tomatoes, they go well together

FarelyKnuts Sat 11-May-13 21:02:18

I'd quite like to ban socks with sandals as a crime against fashion but Im not sure that has much to do with me being a feminist smile

I was ignoring you stealth because I love sundries tomatoes. I can offer feta cheese though?

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 21:05:36

feta cheese
So you like those nasty shrivelled up dead insects then?

Mintyy Sat 11-May-13 21:08:10

Stealthy I'm sorry but you can't ban sundried tomatoes (ergo you must not be a feminist) smile

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sat 11-May-13 21:10:13

FINE. If that;s the way it has to be.
I'd rather spray tan and fake eyelash 3yo DD than eat a sundried tomato. Oh and buy her a copy of "How to marry a rich man and spend your days having your nails done".

I love them.
Do you like feta? It tastes like dry, yet moist vomit.

GoblinGranny - liberals like you are digging your own graves. Hah! I am an extreeemist - a feminist extreeemist - I will force everyone to eat fried egg sandwiches!!!!

And tomato sauce.

Not sure where I stand on the sundried tomato controversy though.

Ban celery. Pointless fucking vegetable.

PromQueenWithin Sun 12-May-13 20:04:05

I would like to ban loud mastication.

<avoids unfortunate typo>

YES Doctrine. Now there is a ban I can get on board with.

CoalDustWoman Sun 12-May-13 20:29:41

Thirded celery.

CoalDustWoman Sun 12-May-13 20:31:20

Especially celery in spag bol and cottage pie. and meals like that. Why do people do that?

MrsWolowitz Sun 12-May-13 20:33:59

No! Don't ban olives or sun-dried tomatoes!

I'm a feminist and I want to ban people from wearing leggings as trousers.

Where is this feminist banning team? I want to e- mail them my suggestion so they can get on with enforcing the ban.
