I was in the Science Museum shop yesterday and saw these among the postcards.
I didn't attempt to buy one, they're not official merchandise and I didn't want to be the one to draw attention to them and get them removed.
Huge Interwebs high-five to whoever put them there!

A friend has just said the stickers are back. And right by the till! Apparently the gift shop is heaving, because it's half term. Well done that woman.

Not stickers, postcards!

I can't help thinking how official they look, fitting right in.

I'm really pleased to see they are still there. I was worried that I'd drawn attention and they'd be taken away.
Can't think of a better place for them than the Science Museum.

Are they real - maybe?! Please!

Definitely. It's stunning campaign, in my opinion. If the dictionary definition of the word woman is offensive, then that, in itself, is a headline worth shouting from the rooftops.

Something that Posie made only too clear when she was on Sky with Harrop and he accused women of 'appropriating the word woman'.

Datun Harrop on Sky !
I wish Bore was here to provide a nice little link.
If I'd seen the postcards in the shop I would have tried to buy one blush

Hope this link works:

It's like you can just summon it up by clicking your fingers.

If someone is playing that clip and there's no one around to hear it, does he still sound like a twat?

heathspeedwell Fri 21-Feb-20 16:00:07

Every time I watch that clip it gets better.

I seriously hope more TV producers give Posie airtime, she has a genius for cutting straight to the heart of the matter.

I'm sure he does Datun.

Lordfrontpaw Fri 21-Feb-20 16:35:32

Datum - yes. Yes he does. And we all know it.

I’m not a fan of this kind of thing. I found a load of anti-choice leaflets in the rack at the GP’s surgery. They’d been put there unofficially.

Lordfrontpaw Fri 21-Feb-20 16:56:18

Depends what sort of thing it is I suppose...

I love it!

Honestly reminds me of the movie Alone in Berlin with Emma Thompson.

Nope, I don't agree with that. But I do agree with this. smile

Thank you for posting that link, heathspeedwell. I’ve been feeling a bit rough recently and it always, always cheers me up, no matter how many times I watch it grin
