Greythorne, I was just thinking how revealing (and not in a good way) some of the posts have been on a couple of threads today, as though a couple of the posters have something invested in controlling the narrative rather than allowing a 'Chat' or discussion to happen spontaneously.

I think that 'something' is often their identities in a workplace heavily affected by patriarchy, about which they are in denial. Line of least resistance, maybe?

I hope you reported the personal attack Greythorne.
MNHQ love reports, they keep reminding us to do so, regularly.

Hopefully it was only one poster's opinion, in that case a deletion removes the nastiness, even if it doesn't remove the hurt feelings. Have some thanks

after venturing onto other parts of the site, where insidious, unintentional, institionalised, "let's find excuses for it" sexism is rife.

Sometimes I forget that we are not surrounded by like-minded folk. For all the ding dongs on here about cis and porn and prostitution, I feel so much more at home here.

That's it really. Can't believe I was slated as spouting the "normal bollox from the wimmin" just because I called out sexism. ah, well.
