Quote from: Twonty Gostelow on July 16, 2020, 11:10:48 AMI thought the PM me a name' thing was a joke fwiw. As far as I can tell, no one knows who it is. No loss if the posts need to be deleted.

Quote from: Famous Mortimer on August 05, 2020, 04:39:16 PMI just wonder what'll happen the first time there's a grey-ish area case involving a comedian who makes the venues money?
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on July 03, 2020, 04:21:21 PMShappi Khorsandi talked about bad behavior on the 1990s circuit in a podcast recently. What's happening on the comedy circuit is really interesting – you and I are both from the Nineties where we didn't talk about this stuff. We thought feminism was matching the men pint for pint, and pretending we really enjoyed one-night stands. 'But we had no way of verbalising that actually we didn't want that to happen, because we were meant to just enjoy what the men enjoyed. 'That was what the whole "ladette" culture sold to us. '
Quote from: Retinend on August 25, 2020, 10:03:27 AMInteresting to hear it admitted that the 90s "matching men pint for pint" and "shagging" culture around sex was not for most women this woman, even if they were sex-positive feminists.
Quote from: Retinend on August 25, 2020, 11:24:23 AMok sure, I take that bit back - but in the podcast she was assuming to speak for more women than just herself, and I can believe it
Quote from: Retinend on August 25, 2020, 03:10:24 PMI believe in personal agency, but I also think it's easy to get caught up in contemporary lifestyle trends that one doesn't really believe in, especially if at the time it was being spun as something positive and vaguely feminist like "we can be LADS just as good as you LADS can be".
Quote from: Autopsy Turvey on August 25, 2020, 04:43:02 PMIt's easy if you're a daft/naive/gullible conformist, as I presume Shappi will concede she was in her 20s. None of these things makes anyone "worth less" than anyone else, of course, but how else to describe any educated adult woman who thought that mimicking the most vacuous and shallow excesses of 'lad culture' made them 'as good as men'? A woman with access to a decent university library thought that feminism meant getting pissed and shagging strangers? Many women (and I'm sure a few men) regret their own youthful promiscuity, but not so many insist that their own bad choices were the fault of a contrived tabloid cliche.

Quote from: Stone Cold Steve Austin on September 03, 2020, 12:16:00 PMis Veitch the guy who's a Daniel Kitson superfan skulking at the back of his gigs when I'm fairly sure Kitson has no idea he exists or have I mixed him up with someone else
Quote from: Jake Thingray on September 02, 2020, 07:20:18 PMHonestly, have never heard of this cunt.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on September 03, 2020, 05:45:10 PMJesus, that's a pretty damning article. I don't get people like this, after a history of rape and sexual assault, do they truly believe they're going to become wealthy and successful and not have it come out?
