Reading about Iceland. The country not the shop.

What do we think the differences would be if (when) women rule the world?

I'd not watched Eastenders since the 80s, but my daughter likes it and put it on.
I dutifully moaned all the way through it.

I used to watch Brooky a bit as the ex liked it.
But I do think they're crap. Obviously that's my opinion so worth not a lot.

If woman ruled the world, Mumsnet would become Dadsnet and hordes of fathers would be posting about toilet rolls being hung the wrong way and washing machine service washes. And politics of course.

See! Unequivocal, self-reported, undeniable, irrefutable evidence.grin

If I could rule the world, I would change only one thing!

Leave the man with the animals and children and housework for one week a year!

I've carried out a survey of the people in my house.

None of the males watch soaps.
All of the females watch soaps.

Number of participants in survey: 3

Anecdotal evidence is proof enough for me.

Conclusive, Daddelion. You should get that research published.

Soon after getting Sky with it's eleventy billion channels, I said to dd "of course when I was your age we only had three channels, BBC1, BBC2 and ITV. She looked at me shockhmmshock and hmmshock again.

I still don;t think she actually believes me.

I've had those conversations.

We didn't have the Internet, we looked things up in books.
A Gig of memory was a dream.

Sunday children's TV was The Waltons and that we it.

They look at me like I'm an old twat, and they're probably right.

Daddelion, what is the ratio of males to females in the house please? Just to get extra technical of course.

In my house we are 50/50 males to females and none of us watch soaps, unless forced to at my mothers house. Dh is the one who remembers all the plots of every soap ever and every character. He also remembers Heartbeat and similar shows very well. Everybody has a talent I suppose...

I don't like to divulge my sources as it ruins my argument.

But there's three here, and I've a son and a daughter.
So in the spirit of Blackadder III 16,472 opinions have been registered in the survey.

My son likes Jeremy Kyle and Jerry Springer so I'm a bit worried about him.

If women were in charge there'd be tea & biscuits at prime ministers question time,

and it would be funnier.

Any world ruled by women described as a utopia would be based on the patriarchal view that women are are all angels without a violent bone in their bodies.
