Replace women by men and let me know how accommodating you'd be then...and before you claim "but I am not attracted to men" I can assure you that most women are not attracted to the men who make comments at them. They may think they look like Brad Pitt, but trust me, I have yet to come across one that actually does.
Equally so, depends how well they tip.

Then go and be a male stripper. That is your choice, you liked it, but what if you didn't? Would it still be ok for people do this to you? Or don't we get a choice?
Haven't really got the physique for that.

I meant sex. I clearly meant sex. I have never had someone shout "nice shoes" at me. I have had men shout "nice t*ts" at me. Its about sex. Not about making someone feel good. Its about asserting dominance.
You seem to have a very one sided view of sex. If your experience of sex is all about asserting dominance rather than feeling good then you need a better partner.

Nope, never said that.
If you think i did then you're projecting, if you're playing dumb then stop it, it doesn't suit you.
I think my response is covered above.

Simon. You did imply that, you just refuse to follow it through, so don't play dumb with me, and don't you dare patronise me. It doesn't work for you.
I'm not going to argue over whatever is happening in your head.

Marmite is also a good source of B12.
I don't have (and don't want) children, so in environmental terms i could drive a fleet of Range Rovers and still come out ahead.

Marmite:) A former brother in law of mine liked that.
I don't Think we have it here.
Best source of B12 is raw liver.
But then Hannibal Lector comes to mind:)

Get the fava beans and chianti ready. Fshfhfhfhfhh!

UKIP are also genuinely racists, they just put a better spin on it. I don't see how a party that blames immigrants for our problems can be considered anything but racist.

That's xenophobia, not racism.

What's the difference?
Xenophobia is racism, hatred against "others" such other nations and different beliefs, bullying and much more.

Xenophobia is fear of that which is different or 'strange'.
Racism is the belief that one race is inherently superior to another.

I'm sorry, I don't understand. If it is a compliment, are women in their 60s less deserving of compliments?
I hope this is Socratic irony at work here.
What do you imagine the recipient is being complimented on? Their chess rating?

For three years (21-24) i worked part time in a restaurant, serving drinks at the bar. (I was a student, i needed the money). It was a slightly seedy area of town and we'd frequently get hen parties and such in of an evening.

Me being one of the youngest (most of the other staff were at least late thirties) i'd frequently be a 'target' for these groups. I'd get all sorts of comments thrown my way, ranging from 'Hey gorgeous' to 'get your knob out', roughly corresponding with quantity of alcohol consumed, there was also wolf whistling, occasional bottom pinching, requests for group photos (i usually acceded), the first would be fairly normal then they'd start trying to plant kisses on me etc.

Now, does that sound like a fair comparison to this woman being whistled at in the street?
If so then what is she complaining about? I enjoyed every minute, rather miss it actually.

Again, I don't understand. If it is a compliment, what has it got to do with sex?
Stick with 'gender', it's less confusing that way.

Are you suggesting that wolf whistling is about sexual power and therefore inappropriate in public places?
Nope, never said that.
If you think i did then you're projecting, if you're playing dumb then stop it, it doesn't suit you.
I think my response is covered above.

Good for her. I am not sure why she needs the approval of strangers in the street, is she not getting enough from elsewhere?
She is in her sixties.

If wolf whistling is a 'compliment' as men claim, why do they only compliment women? Why don't they shout compliments at other men? If that is all it is, then surely they would be doing that.
Statistically, only between 1% and 5% would be likely to. (Source)

Lets see; i have solar panels, never throw anything edible away, only fly once a year, never buy bottled water, take the bus to work and make my few clothes that fit me last. Not bad going.
Reduce my meat consumption? I don't think so.

Total utter twat, who is like a little boy who suddenly doesn't believe in the tooth fairy.

Russell brand is the most obnoxious little twerp on the face of this planet. I would pay good money to have him taken up a dark alley, and have his attitude rearranged (amongst other things).

Aaaarrggh

Can't argue with that, if you need the alleyway cleaned up after then i know a few tricks. :)

I was talking to my mother on the phone last night and i mentioned the whistling builders story. She said she was jealous of Poppy Smart because no-one's whistled at her for at least twenty years and she misses it.

Where are the ugly mug shots of the building site ignorant grunts?

Yes, only pictures of the victim...

Has anyone ever considered building a nuclear-powered ocean liner? They're certainly the right sort of scale.

I was almost disappointed (not really sure why) to find out the HMS QE isn't nuclear powered, apparently for 'cost reasons' (damn accountants!). We've got a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines (13 of them i believe) so it's not as though we can't handle the technology.

The "boats" coming to Europe are not seaworthy and overcrowded.
Let's say the Costguard make a boat to turn back and the boat sinks.
Who's responsible?

Easy, the captain who set off with a knackered boat in the first place.

Most of the boats dosn't have a captain.
They "train" someone to steer North.
Even a Child can do that.

The captain says "good luck" and walks away with the Money.

Him then.

If the government hadn't killed off the British fighter aircraft industry, we could have had supersonic Harriers on that ship.

Isn't the Typhoon British? And BAE Systems is a British company right?

Partly British, different bits are built my many companies.
Couldn't use Typhoons on the HMS QE though, they need a launching system.

The leaflets warned that condoms and the morning-after pill put people "at risk" and make them "isolated".

So are they advocating abortions or advocating having unwanted babies?
If they're like the school i went to, they're probably advocating total abstinence.
I'm catholic (technically) so i should worry about it destroying my soul, but i'm also ginger, so i have no soul to destroy...

Most people accept that living together while engaged, for a while before marriage is a sensible thing to prepare for a life together. If it isn't going to work for whatever reason, best to find that out then rather than later.
Agreed. It would be like buying a car without taking it for a test drive.

Women too illogical to play high-level chess, says UK master - beaten by woman

How did HE explain that!
You get outliers in every group, it's perfectly possible for what he said to be true in general terms even if there are some notable exceptions.

His statement:
“One is not better than the other, we just have different skills. It would be wonderful to see more girls playing chess, and at a higher level, but rather than fretting about inequality, perhaps we should just gracefully accept it as a fact.”
That sounds fair to me.

Amanda Ross, of London’s Casual Chess club, told the Telegraph newspaper Short’s comment were “incredibly damaging when someone so respected basically endorses sexism.”
Give it a rest love.

Of course Es99.

BTW: Freedomest.

Nice word. May I use it in the future?

I think she meant what she said, freedomist, i.e. an advocate or adherent of freedomism.
Freedomism (noun): the doctrine that man has freedom of choice in his actions.

Freedomest is a drub rehab clinic in Giza, Egypt.

Disagree.

I have never pushed the 'Red X', Ignored, nor attempted to censor others. They do have a Right to their BS.

As shown in the previous posts.

BTW: I have never pushed the 'Red X', nor attempted to Censor, or Ignore others, as they continually do. Betting the same regarding you.

You keep denying something that no-one has accused you of... guilty conscience?
