Wow, fuck you #12. You literally think that all girls just pole dance rather than do important things? You're more sexist then the OP's father. Not all women work at strip clubs or as hookers, most live on to greater things. Some others just can't get there when they try and don't have a choice but to do such degrading things as being a strip club dancer or something like that. Anyway, sorry for your sexist father, whoever created this fml. Fyl.

Haha top of my class in most subjects and I'm actually from Suffolk but my mum lives in Essex which is where I was when I created this account. However no, my mum and my sister are both NOT pole dancers so thanks for that unnessasary jibe at Essex people.

Actually, it is a sexist comment. It makes a generalization about people based on their gender which is, and here we get into some pretty simply definitions, sexism. The fact that the comment also includes their location does not somehow make it any less sexist. Unless, as you claim, being a feminist I am unable to read. Perhaps I have missed all the footnotes in the dictionary that state "Discrimination that takes place about women is note considered sexism in cases where the general towns

Right. We might be getting all feminist on you, but not only was your comment rude, it was also legitimately sexist. At least women can do SOMETHING to be independant when everyhting goes to shit. And we don't exactly have a whole lot of choices when life turns its back on us (what, with pigs like you in the world), so we try to be resourceful and use our assets. Tell me, what do men do when life goes to shit? Let me give you an answer similar to yours and see what you make of it: The man

I’m going to have to disagree with you girls/feminist, #12 comment wasnt actually sexist. @#20 please point out where he mentioned that “all women work at strip clubs or as hookers” @#39 yes # 12 is sexist because YOU assume he thinks the only thing girls can do is pole dance. @#95 I sometimes wonder the same thing, I think it’s more their comprehension skills than their reading skills that is under par. @#102and #112 you would be right if #12 did make a generalization about people

Okay, you've raised some really good points. Especially about the "overreaction" and "blown way out of proportion" part. And even the dig about the comprehension skills, since I bet most feminists will skim your post and write a page long rant. But the comment was meant to indicate to the girl that the writer felt that she, as a woman living in essex, should be a pole dancer. Any argument with that? Most people consider that assumption and recommended action derogatory. It wa

#139 If number 12 had said boys instead of girls it would ahve read like this. "He probably wasn't being sexist. I'm not sexist, and I'm amazed that a boy from Essex could mow a lawn. Most Essex boys can dance on a pole before they can walk, and end up doing it till they're 60. Listen love, just tell your dad to get you a miniskirt rather than pay you, and then you can get a jumpstart on your career." I would have died from laughing. Thank you for the great mental image that I go

Number 12's comment wasn't sexist at all. It was directed towards Essex. I'm from New York. I could see a post by a woman from New Jersey and say "women from New Jersey are bimbos" and you would find that sexist, but it's not. It's not about WOMEN, it's about NEW JERSEY. I would just as soon see a post from a man from New Jersey and say "men from New Jersey are douche bags." Is it stereotyping ? Absolutely, but it isn't SEXIST.

even if your dad was being sexist, he only had doubts of your physical abilities as a girl. And dont you think that when he said he doubt you could mow the lawn cus your a girl meant that he was suprised that you could do it? that means that youve already proved him wrong that women are capable of doing the same things as men. He has also admit he was wrong when he said that he doubt that girls could mow lawns after youve finished mowing the law。you should be proud of proving him wrong. bt

How much TOWIE do you watch?!? That type of girl is in such a small minority. Essex is mostly fields, so most of the girls are farmers! Yes I am from Essex and yes I can mow a lawn, I can also drive a tractor.

He doesn't even have to pay her though. She's living under his roof, so that's payment enough. I expect nothing but a "Thank you" when I mow the lawn.

Your lawn probably dosent take 3 hours with a sit on lawn mower 3 acres you do the math. And if someone told you that you were going to be paid then you wouldn't expect not to be paid with a sexist reason.

damn. I wouldn't be doing any chores for him anymore. Just say your weak little girly arms can't handle the work. See how that goes over. Sorry your dad is a sexist pig.
