    Not certain you'll get so far with that line of argument... Not wishing to prejudge here, but I suspect our gentleman might be of 'the sort' who is oblivious to the 'appearance' of females, in many spheres of life *

    *A not uncommon affliction IME

    Have to say, I'm a dedicated pacifist at heart L. G. Personally I can't bear violence, in any of its forms, including those verbalised....

    A spankingly heated debate, with combatants worthy of that name?

    Totally In my element... :)

    Dictionary? I used to have one of those but dropped it from my kit list as I found it was a tad heavy to carry around. ;)

    I hope I'm not alone in finding this a particularly fascinating psychological paradox...:oops:

    But it would appear that a gentleman (sic) who has just been informed, very publicly, that his correspondent is wholly uninterested in engaging in non consensual violence...

    Is now, quite clearly, suffering an attack of the trembles??

    I just don't understand...:confused:

    Can anyone enlighten me as to the cause of his discomfiture?

    And perhaps give him a little soothe?

    I feel quite dreadful about it... :(

    It is sweet the way you guys go shopping together though... "Could I carry off a pussy cat bow dy'think? Or a tad too ageing?"

    Annie you mustn't make fun.. He's trying to exhibit his sensitive side..

    Can I just apologise on behalf of all the blokes on trek-lite Chis, most threads don't turn into a coffee morning at the local WI

    Ahem, I think you'll find it was Mr Bristles as started up about blouses... Annie and I were reminiscing about our days at Ms Valkyries School of Advanced Axe Throwing...

    Rather bold to be apologising on behalf of all the blokes? Wouldn't you say??

    I know it is your forum sweetie, and as such, what you say, very much does go..

    But doesn't it strive as a tad peculiar that a discussion forum regarding a non gender specific activity, particularly aimed at carrying less pack weight..

    And as we know, due to their physiology, females are, on average less muscularly strong (although, those averages tell us nothing about the individual person of course)

    Doesn't it strike as odd that there should be such a small proportion of women who feel welcomed to these discussions??

    I wonder if it might have anything to do with the slightly testy, testosterone fuelled discussions one encounters?

    And the boring old 'imposter syndrome' , that so many women still seem to labour under

    Just a thought...

    Looking forward to the 'robust debate' around that one.
    ? If I haven't got m'self modded off, altogether :)

    Seeing as most of the time, most of us are NOT doing what we'd like to be doing, I don't see any harm in a bit of bants between friends.
