Nanny Bans "Darling"

Today, in case you didn't know, is International Women's Day (it is also British Pie Week!).

In keeping with such, Euro Nanny has today decreed that wolf-whistles or calling someone 'darling' is now a crime which may get you arrested (according to Julia Gray anyway).

The ladies in my local market refer to me as "darling".

Are they committing a crime?

Anyhoo Cameron will today sign up to new laws in the Council of Europe's convention on violence against women.

Julia Gray, founder of the London branch of anti street harassment group Hollaback, rather trivialises the issue of violence (thus undermining the intended impact of the legalisation) and is quoted in the Guardian:

'The way we see it is if you want to tackle it you tackle all of it – you say no to all forms of unwanted sexual harassment; that includes wolf-whistling, comments, everything.'

Lucky that Charlie Drake isn't still around then!

    does this mean that if you call your best male friend 'mate' that you are either gay or a criminal or both?

  2. One of the checkout ladies at my local Sainsbury's calls me "My Love". I often have a joke with her about it, and how she is taking a risk carrying on like that...

    Perhaps I should take offence (or a gate post), and seek compensayshun?

    I am only guessing, but I imagine that Julia Gray has got a face that looks like a bulldog licking piss off a thistle.

    It is usually the women that are most unlikely to get wolf-whistled or called anything endearing that come out with crap like this.

    I am sure that she must be a lesbian, what man would put up with a dozy gobshite like her?

    Lunatics like her must live in some sort of bubble, unaware of what real street harassment is. And I would have thought that the day after 6 men (yes, Julia……MEN) were brutally murdered so that people like her and Cameron can be safer on the streets, that they would both re-evaluate gender roles and what really constitutes violence.

    Hello my darlings....

    More PC crap to frighten the populus so they don't know whether they're coming or going....A frightened, non confident population is easier to control than a confident, well educated one.

    I watched Mr Cameron's party broadcast last night.....I thought it was a sartirical wind up........The bull shit meter fitted to my TV, flew past maximum and exploded.

    Why can't these pc fascists concentrate on real issues instead of this garbage? If everyone were to ignore this Julia Gray and her ilk, society would be the better for it.

    You are not alone in those views...
