Agreed. If I ever wear a pink cowboy hat & feather boa - shoot me.

pumpernickel10 Sun 12-Jun-11 11:02:22

Nothing wrong with race for life op it's aimed at ladies for a reason
As for hen nights if you hate them don't go

sassyTHEFIRST Sun 12-Jun-11 11:02:29

Its cos you want men around to flirt with.

You slaaaag

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 11:02:51

why should charity be split on gender based lines?
surely negates whole principle of charity

TeddyMcardle Sun 12-Jun-11 11:03:21

YANBU, get a steady stream of these invites on fb, pamper evenings, some chef thing where they sell you overpriced and boring homewear, bodyshop, oh yes come to my house and bring your purse mind, gah.

UrsulaBuffay Sun 12-Jun-11 11:05:00

GBF- gay best friend

I would never use bff, in fact I have no 'girlfriends'.

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 11:05:38

yes the fuckign shit cook things

FriedaRoam Race for Life makes a hell of a lot of money to pay for very expensive research into cancer. I don't see what that has to do with the 'whole principle of charity'. Charities invest in fundraising so that they can pay for the services they provide and I hate to think what the country would be like if they didn't. One of the reasons Race for Life is so successful may be that some women feel more comfortable taking part in a women-only event. Run 10K is a very similar event and anyone can take part in that.

pumpernickel10 Sun 12-Jun-11 11:08:31

Just my opinion OP
Oh and boys under the age of 11 can take part in race for life

YABU to mention the 'race for life' things, but YADNBU about the other shite

i cannot think of anything much worse than a hen night, dressed as a 'pink lady' watching a stripper while doing shots of amaretto in the name of 'entertainment'

would rather poke my own eyes out with a cocktail stick

TeddyMcardle Sun 12-Jun-11 11:09:12

<quick look on fb> Pampered Chef, fuck off pampered chef.
See also candle parties.

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 11:09:27

freat race for life raises money
why cant men do it?
imagine if was other way around

pumpernickel10 Sun 12-Jun-11 11:09:38

So it's not just a female event op

ooohyouareawfulbutilikeyou Sun 12-Jun-11 11:10:03

agree OP

FriedaRoam Sun 12-Jun-11 11:10:10

it is
its for women and boys
why cant men run to raise money?
very odd

and its pink

pumpernickel10 Sun 12-Jun-11 11:10:15

Boys take part

UrsulaBuffay Sun 12-Jun-11 11:11:27

I don't get why race for life isn't a women's cancer thing yet it's only for women. It's successful so 'yay hun' for that.

pumpernickel10 Sun 12-Jun-11 11:11:29

Oh op why pick on race for life it's a worthwhile cause.
I've run it twice and my DH helped me raise money so he was involved
