'Real sensitivity'? OK, fine with me.
FYI, check the Cambridge Dictionary definition of 'poncy'.
poncy
[ˈpɒnsi]

ADJECTIVE
BRITISH
informal
  1. pretentious or affected:
    "a poncy wine bar"
    synonyms:
    pretentious · high-flown · ostentatious · pompous · grandiose · over-elaborate · overblown · overripe · overworked · overdone · contrived · forced · laboured · strained · stiff · posed · stagy · studied · mannered · hollow · insincere ·

I thought you might miss some of the definition..."an insulting way of describing something that is not traditionally male, especially in behaviour, appearance, or speech" - or were you looking at something else?

I just copied and pasted the chunk that came up when I googled it. So I reckon I was looking at another reputable dictionary definition. At the end of the day I've never considered ponsy to relate to 'not traditionally male' when I've used the word.

I can't speak for others, but have always read it thus:
Note: I said certain posts were 'inching' towards that idea, perhaps?
Because it's a word with two meanings, maybe, it's the kind of word to avoid for fear of misconstruing?

You may be right. So in the spirit of not taking this thread any further down a definitions route I will stop calling anything ponsy in future.

In what fixture would we need a third kit? Or is this the 'winter' second kit so we don't clash with the ball?!

I'm assuming it would be worn when the opposition have both blue and yellow in their shirts/shorts? Failing that, it's another revenue feed for the club via Macron, but surely that couldn't be the main reason......could it?

There are a hell of a lot of words with multiple meanings - would be very hard to construct a sentence if we avoided them all!

People understanding that words have multiple meanings and are not always intended to default to the offensive use is probably the best way of moving forwards.

I have no doubt regarding the revenue aspect. :-)
Sorry - my question should have been... Is there a National League 22/23 home kit that's blue with enough yellow, or vice versa, that would require us to need a third kit?

One would imagine, the users of the word ‘poncy’ would also shout.. ‘you play like a Jessie/big girls blouse’.. or maybe not?

The stuff you can find on Google scares the ****e out of me at times. I reckon this meets your need on checking out home shirts. The second part is subjective probably.
