The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

Last Time I Checked, I Was Robert, Not Roberta …

So the organisers of the Singapore Women’s Leadership want me to nominate myself for their award.

Last time I looked, I had a couple of balls and a penis hanging pathetically and limply from my body.

[That’s a nice image for you isn’t it!?]

Seriously, how could they let this happen?

What does it say about their standards and values if they send nominations to men to put themselves forward for a woman’s award.

I know we want to live in an equal opportunity World, but this is ridiculous.

Almost as ridiculous as people who nominate themselves for awards, but that’s by-the-by.

All the had to do was alter the bloody copy of the email by a couple of words [ie: get rid of ‘to nominate yourself”] and they could send it to as many men as they liked.

But they didn’t.

They went with convenience rather than accuracy and relevance.

I just hope the eventual winner of this ‘prestigious’ award never finds out, because nothing would undermine the value of their title than discovering the organisers have standards lower than an NRA spokesman.

Cheap joke Billy but I know Rob put it on a plate for you so you get away with it.

Keep dreaming.

I knew when I wrote this someone would bite. I just didn’t know who’d get there first … which is amusing, given I’ve been told you always come first Billy.

Boom Tish.

making shit jokes about campbell being mistaken for a woman is beneath me. besides the fucker doesnt help himself by being so fucking emotional and not drinking or smoking. he got pissed on fucking strepsils for fucks sake. i worked with the bastard for 8 years and i thought he was a chick. an ugly chick with facial hair problems but still a chick.
ive not commented on here for a few fucking days so im going to raise the tone and get political. if women want equality, why the fuck are they having a competition thats only for chicks. discuss.

and dont say “because they havent got it”.

that might be the fucking case but in my house, the ladies rule the fucking roost. which reminds me, ive got to get the wine chilled and the milk warm for the queen and princess. how life has fucking changed.

You’re back. All is going to be OK.

You’re the Jeremy Paxman of subservient men.

Given they invited me to their event, surely that means they are absolutely into gender equality?

Comment by Rob

And for the record, it’s nice to have you ‘back’. Not just because I’ve missed your insults but it means Bonnie is continuing with her recovery. Top news.

Comment by Rob

I don’t think you want to go there Andrew. Have you forgotten we are seeing you this weekend?

Comment by Mary Bryant

I love you Mary.

Comment by Rob

It’s either laziness or a really silly mistake.

I’m guessing most who received it ended up ignoring the mistake but that attitude just encourages even more lack of care and attention. Errors happen. Stupid errors shouldn’t.

Comment by Pete

I knew I could rely on you to get to the real issue. You’re right, mistakes do happen … but these sort of mistakes shouldn’t.

Comment by Rob

Following on from Andy’s comments on equality, the battle lines are already forming. There are two girls and two boys.
Unfortunately, the boy is turning out to be as sweet natured and naive as me, while the girl is as strong willed, cunning and manipulative as her Mum.
The greatest trick Satan ever pulled was letting the world think he didn’t exist
Even more diabolical was the ruse of women letting men think they’re in charge

Comment by northern

You pretty much nailed the difference between the genders right there Northern.

Comment by Rob

Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is.

Comment by John

Oh lighten up

Comment by northern

There is no light in my life.

Comment by John

stop fucking complaining doddsy, it means youre not going to be hit by a fucking oncoming train.

Comment by andy@cynic

And that’s good news.

Comment by John

And yet, even thought I know what’s happening, I’m powerless to prevent it

Comment by northern

Hey Rob – I’m guessing you get a lot of these emails. Despite years of talk about “making blogger outreach personalized” and that, a lot of people don’t get it. And that’s because some of the companies servicing PR companies (newswires) have created “distribution lists” that are nothing more than email addresses of semi-relevant blogs. It’s turned PR folk into spam machines.

Comment by Parker

you mean emails that have been randomly sent to him and countless other millions because the fucker is average in every fucking way except for his shit taste in shoes, clothes and music? excellent back handed compliment parker. you can come again.
