    Gender neutral toilets in schools

    Apparently there are now calls for gender neutral toilets in schools because around 1 percent of students are not sure what gender they are. Words fail me Discuss
  3. Dear RM....

    Dear RM, oh exalted leader would it be at all possible to make a press release that involves nothing more than facts? Let the fans know a few things so that our debates are more informed. Is there an embargo? Does PB have a transfer kitty? Will the s106 be satisfied in the near...
  4. Gender stereotyping kids

    Rather than pervert to JT thread, I thought I'd start a new one. Talking to the missus last night we wondered if it's possible to get a child to follow a certain path in later years because of the colour of clothes you buy, or the toys they play with. Was Jamie Oliver bought a toy kitchen as...

    Parent Text App: How to text your children...

    I'm intrigued by this for a variety of reasons... I don't have children, but spend all day every day communicating with young people. Texting is a powerful force and so often communication takes place between parents and their children in this way. Indeed, even at 27 often I will text my own...

    Another waste of Taxpayers money?

    http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/gender-free-uk-passports-mooted surely a debate that doesnt need to be had, and research that doesnt need to be done, all to panda to about 0.001% of the UK population. While there at it, take DOB off of there, as surely asking that is ageist! There are far more...

    Men and Women behaviours

    After having a brief debate with ESB on the Sex in the City Film thread, it is clear that men and women both act very differently. What I have always wondered is, is this due to the genetic make up of a man and woman's bodys' or is it down to peer pressure, media, social groups etc? For...

    Now for some reason I've never felt at ease in having a woman cut my hair (maybe stems from childhood when my Mum as frugal as ever got the old dear next door to cut it). Obviously the hairdressers can be a haven for lots of dolled up hotties so simple really, which gender do you prefer to cut...

    Red Riding Hood - The PC Version

    There once was a young person named Little Red Riding Hood who lived on the edge of a large forest full of endangered owls and rare plants that would probably provide a cure for cancer if only someone took the time to study them. Red Riding Hood lived with a nurture giver whom she sometimes...
  17. Matchday Vendors Wanted

    Have just read the latest news on the club site, where they are advertising for 'presentable young men' for the new scheme they will have put into place. Is it just me or is this sexist, and I believe it's against the law to descriminate people because of their age, race, beliefs...

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...
