Reclaim the afternoon and early evening

johnboy 29 October 2006 47

I had the pleasure on Friday afternoon to saunter past the “reclaim the night” rally in Garema Place

Oddly enough it was still bright daylight at the time. Sadly I couldn’t hear the speakers over the top of the buskers next to King O’

I have stopped calling them bogans and booners. I believe the Canberra breed is more of a hybrid, so I now call them ‘boners’.

Feel free to use it.

BTW I am far from a misogynist, but there is a lot of rhetoric being espoused by some of these womyn that, to be quite frank, is a lie.

“the curfew mentality imposed on all women”

Bollocks. Pop into Civic at 3am on a Sunday morning.

i have an idea:

let the ‘reclaim the night’ womyn and riotact misogynists have a paintball tournie.

two teams enter – one team leaves.

The longer I spend on this site the more of a man hater I am becoming…..

Particularly as the womyn doing the labelling bat for the other team metaphorically speaking

Any efforts to reduce the incidences of violence against women is a worthwhile cause. In fact, reducing violence against anyone in society is a worthy of time and effort. I don’t know anyone I associate with that would condone any kind of physical assault against women and children.

I don’t have much time for re-spelling words (“Herstory” instead of “history”, “womyn”), and I think that the website authors should try and remember that even though the majority of offenders are male, the majority of males aren’t necessarily offenders. Labelling men as evil sex fiends is as ridiculous as the notion of original sin.

Oh, and grannies are hot (especially when they’re lesbos and getting married and … well, you know the rest).

VYBerlinaV8 8:58 am 31 Oct 06

Wow VG, only one flame?! Guess we all agree with you!

simto 8:38 am 31 Oct 06

Well, that’d be fine, except that a lot of sexual assults aren’t about the attractiveness or otherwise of the victim at all (there’s a fair chunk of granny rapes for example).

So your personal opinion would be fine, except for the bit where it’s completely blanked out by the lack of evidence behind it…

I will be flamed incessantly about this, but I’ve always found it strange that the people who make the most noise about womyn reclaiming the night are, aesthetically speaking, those least likely to be whipped away for the miscreance they rail against.

The principle is great, the presentation….well lets just say some people do a lot to perpetuate a stereotype.

OK flame away, but I reckon I’m only saying aloud what a lot of people think (and its my personal opinion)

Muffin tops are a noice look.

Just ask Kath or Kim.

johnboy 5:38 pm 30 Oct 06

tight low cut jeans + larger girl + bare midriff = Muffin Top.

simbo 5:36 pm 30 Oct 06

Assume that a lady’s low-hanging trousers are the bottom half of a muffin. The muffin top would be what’s hanging over those trousers.

whats a muffin top?

bonfire 4:02 pm 30 Oct 06

if there were more examples of muffin top, i think all carnal thoughts would be eliminated.

just walk around belco mall on pension day…

VYBerlinaV8 4:01 pm 30 Oct 06

He tells women to cover up but calls himself a mufti… Hmmm…

Mr Evil 3:53 pm 30 Oct 06

“Are they muffin tops or mufti tops?”

🙂 LOL

vg 3:02 pm 30 Oct 06

Are they muffin tops or mufti tops?

Couldn’t help it

Mr Evil 2:50 pm 30 Oct 06

Exactly, Mr Shab – that’s what my Mufti told me too!

Mr_Shab 2:36 pm 30 Oct 06

Dressed properly and stayed indoors, Mr Evil.

That way all us poor, weak-willed men won’t have to worry about those violent, carnal urges bubbling to the surface – ’cause the sight of a woman’s muffin-tops leaking over the top of a pair of too-tight jeans jacks up our reptilian brains and turns us into rapists, apparently.
