Its patronising

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:04:52

and what is the relevance of there being no MEN there?

Or even women going out?

MadAngryGnome Sat 11-Jul-15 11:05:25

Yes. YANBU. Shits me to tears.

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:06:13

LOVE that expression

chubbymummy Sat 11-Jul-15 11:06:37

hmm biscuit

YABU. I say that I am going out with my "girls" to mean my group of 3 best friends that I've known since childhood. It's easier to say "girls", than Pamela, Anne and Sarah.

i hate that biscuit more though?
You come onto a thread to post a biscuit. At least say WHY it doesnt bother you

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:09:19

i am out with my friends?

Isn't it just a female version of Lads' night out? Cannot get worked up about this.
(Might be missing something...?)

I know somebody who went for a "girlie day out" with her daughters to celebrate her 60th birthday.

They also had a "cheeky glass of fizz" with the afternoon tea.

hmm

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:11:04

OR OR also hate
' oh my husband is TAKING ME OUT'

* gasps for air *

Why does it matter?

Most of my friends are part of a couple and do lots of couples nights out sometimes they decide to have a girls night out and the men go for a boys night out. I don't see why saying that is such a big deal. Men and women sometimes feel more relaxed/comfortable when out with just people of the same gender. Announcing it as such makes it clear that the opposite gender is not invited.

I wouldn't cry or get angry over the expression I would just choose not to use it. Some people can get dramatic over the most ridiculous things.

vindscreen

what are you trying to do to me?

Cactuar Sat 11-Jul-15 11:12:27

Nowt wrong with a cheeky glass of fizz

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:13:09

or worse the rather posh brittle blondes who say ' i am meeting an old girlfriend'

me ' oh i didn't know you were gay'

them ' er no.'

its just a FRIEND

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:13:28

its not cheeky

its a fucking glass of Gallo Grenache

It's more patronising being told what we should or shouldn't do. If it doesn't sit well with you then don't use the words.

forago Sat 11-Jul-15 11:13:50

I agree, also Ladies Day, so twee and there are men there.

vindscreenviper Sat 11-Jul-15 11:14:03

what are you trying to do to me?

I'm trying to make you cry or get angry.

Is it working? grin

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:14:42

FrankietheSquealer Sat 11-Jul-15 11:14:56

SirChenjin Sat 11-Jul-15 11:15:35

You're beyond help if something so trivial gets you this upset.
