I do love a good thread derail grin.

May I add Lapsang Souchong aka Stinky Tea to the banned list?

Celery I like <defiant> <or possibly Not A Feminist shock>

I love celery
And yes, I love feta
<rubs in miracle anti-aging, anti-blemish, anti-redness, anti-freckle, anti-bags, anti-shadow cream>
<puts paper bag over head>

But leggings are trousers? Are they meant to be worn as a hat or a pair of gloves???? ( not getting this point?????)

No you can't ban celery. You can't make a decent stock without it. You could introduce some regulations for its usage though because of course it shouldn't be in spag bol or cottage pie.

Aubergines should be banned, and umbrellas on busy pavements.

Oh, i love feta. Not as much as halloumi, though.

nowwearefour no no no. Leggings are leggings. They are not triusers. They are for tops or dresses that cover your arse. It's not ok to wear them with normal jumpers etc.

Does anyone know where you can apply to the "ban everything feminist" Dept (BEFD). Sounds like my dream job.

Can I ban see through leggings?

Peanut butter kitkats. Most disappointing chocolate experience of my life.

If I can't have that, then I insist on banning people from being allowed to wear their trousers lower than their underpants.

nowwearefour Sun 12-May-13 20:40:46

Oh i see !!!!!
I wouldn't wear them anyway but now I get it! Is there a new brand of leggings out there that could be mistaken for tights?

I can give you directions to the Ban Everything Department (BED) if that helps Fox? grin

Also, I'd like to ban sneaky little bastard spiders, that sneak.

I would like to ban:
- wasps
- lychees
- people who listen to music on the bus too loudly

Presumably I just forward these requests to the banning department, yes?

Actually, on second thoughts, I'd like to ban toddlers... <<sighs>>
It's been a long day

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 12-May-13 21:16:59

Why do people take aubergines onto busy streets?

I came on this thread specifically to moan about celery.
Am v glad other feminists have got there before me.

tribpot Sun 12-May-13 21:23:03

Celery is a feminist issue.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 12-May-13 21:28:40

Look I choose to eat celery. It is a choice I make as a feminist. Isn't feminism about choice?

No, feminism is about being a swivel-eyed termagant who bans things like celery. I think you must have missed the memo.

AnyFucker Sun 12-May-13 21:34:04

I would like to ban nits

EglantinePrice Sun 12-May-13 21:34:29

The more people like you eat celery stealth the harder it is for people like me to not have celery.

That's why celery should be banned. Sorry about that...

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 12-May-13 21:36:20

Even better. Compulsory celery. I'll have it blended and in the tap water.

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 12-May-13 21:36:36

<scratches head>

Celery is so phallic. Of COURSE it's anti-feminist stealth hmm

Going to make getting undressed difficult

StealthOfficialCrispTester Sun 12-May-13 21:39:43

I had no idea there were so many celery haters around
It seems feminists hate celery more than the general population
