Sorry posted too soon. Where we live there is the Race For Life but there are also races for men, my ds and his mate ran last year. It's supposed to be a bit of fun to raise a lot of money for a very good cause, I really don't see any reason to try and denigrate it....

It was a prostate cancer run that my lot did here, it was great. The fellas all cheered us on in our race and then we did the same for them a couple of months later. My dad has prostate cancer (among everything else ) so it was brilliant to feel we were doing even a little bit to battle it.

Men have fund raising opportunities too. Like Movember.
Definition of Sexism.... "Prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex"
How on earth does RFL qualify? Let's focus on real honest-to-God sexism rather than seeing it where none exists, shall we?

oops posted too soon and was going to delete tht last bit cos it wasnt worded properly.
meant that everyone goes on about ageism/sexism against women, this week has been the ann of the suffragette that threw herself in front of the horse etc etc, and all the talk of equality and stuff, yes I agree theres still lots of discrimination gainst women but theres the other side too and he pendulum swings the other way too in some cases.
I don't see why men cant race.
