FIL visiting from abroad. We were watching GBBO Extra Slice and he says to me about Mary Berry: "she looks better from a distance. When they do a close up you see her wrinkles and how old she is. It's a bit off putting." MIL caught me shaking my head in disgust. I don't have enough of a relation with him to have said something. Why does he think I want to hear him talk shit about a woman just because he doesn't like her appearance? Reminds me of the time he made my mum cry by telling her that it must have been her 'feminine' home decor that drove my dad away (my parents had recently separated). How rude. Thank goodness he only visits once or twice a year.

When men make comments like that, it tells you all you need to know, about them
