Hand over 18% of your salary for no reason other than because, only then we can talk about why yabu.

Lolling at things is very unmumsnetty so YABVU for that alone.

Hannah4banana Sun 18-Dec-16 01:04:04

Maybe it's because I've never experienced it but it does seem a bit ott. Someone called me a girl and not a woman and I'm angry. Seriously! So much more in the world to be offended about.

Yeah, wanting the oppression of women to stop is just hilare!

Hold the front page - random woman reckons she never experienced sexism. Therefore it doesn't exist. Spread the word huns. Lol

Huns in Scotland has a whole different offensive meaning. Ironic right enough.

Thank God you have enlightened us! Just think how much more time we'll have to clean the kitchen floor and make sandwiches.

There's bit more to feminism than being called a woman!

AmberEars Sun 18-Dec-16 01:11:30

Oh well yes you're right of course, being a fully grown independent woman I really don't mind being called a girl. It's not condescending or anything............

Yabu. And I say this as someone who's been frogmarched off the feminism board several times. They are pushing the boundaries and going to extremes to get results.

AVirginLitTheCandle Sun 18-Dec-16 01:16:48

You're not? Well all I can say to that is hallelujah! We were all getting a bit worried for a second there! At least now we can all breathe a sigh of relief!

GiddyOnZackHunt Sun 18-Dec-16 01:18:11

There are many minor acts that make people say "Tchh those strident feminists" but the acceptability of them builds up into the continued acceptance of "Wimmin know your place"

NoMoreParades Sun 18-Dec-16 01:19:15

When you say 'pushing the boundaries', do you actually mean striving for equality? You seem to be confused

Hannah4banana Sun 18-Dec-16 01:19:25

Yeah definitely going to extremes. I'm sorry if I come across as rude but some of the topics did make me lol and that's the truth. I can live with being unreasonable. Makes the world go round.

Just glancing at the first page on the feminist board. Threads on domestic violence, rape trials, the counting dead women project. Why are these funny?
