    If you check out the meaning of the two words you may find the latter more effective. Remember, one may not dislike women but can still hold a prejudicial view as to their abilities. Therefore the latter minimalizes the defence men can offer for their attitudes.

    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    Good move from News and Current Affairs to Politics Today.

    We shouldn’t upset those who have no interest in politics but I, for one, cannot see how to discuss/debate Current Affairs or News in any depth without citing some aspect of politics.

    Everyday Sex 2 is clear enough and wide enough for the subject.

    Agree wholeheartedly arandar, I also can not see how we can discuss/debate Current Affairs or News in any depth without citing some aspect of politics. Politics, in the wider sense,  impinges on all aspects of our lives.

    That is why I prefer the Politics Today pages. That way I limit the occasions when I can get into trouble.   😀

    Halcyon. Agreed. What’s more, I confess, i don’t know why others don’t realise that.

    There were often, when posters were many times more numerous than now, occasions when someone would ask a question, seek advice, or complain about something that had happened or not happened – ACC, hospital waiting lists, drugs available through Pharmac, a hundred and one things, and the only useful response was political.

    You look at Current Affairs and News today. Very few live threads, and even fewer posters. I’m sure it was banning posters and political posts that wrecked that page.

    I wondered where to put the following. The general jokes page didn’t seem apt as there’s a mention of the PM in it. So here we go.

    I was walking alone along a beach a few days ago. The recent storm had eroded the shoreline where maori had feasted for centuries. I spotted a clay pot exposed in a shell heap. When I picked it up it shattered in my hands. A chinese sorcerer appeared instantly standing on a granite boulder. Speaking in perfect English he explained how he got imprisoned and was aware of modern world events. He explained that he would need to grant me one wish to remain free and asked me for a request.
    I said, “I want to travel to Australia but I am afraid to fly. I wish for a bridge across the Tasman Sea.”
    He responded, “ That would take a lot of concrete and steel. The supports would be almost impossible. It would have to be protected from storms and hurricanes .” He went on and on. “Do you have another wish that you could request?”
    “There is,” I said. “Since Jacinda Ardern was selected Prime minister, I have wanted to know why any Kiwis can possibly support her.”
    A dreadful look came on the sorcerer’s face and then he said, “How many lanes do you want on that bridge.”

    You are so right mommabear, it should not have been put in the Joke thread. It isn’t a joke. Jokes have a punch line and I am still waiting for that.

    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    More brilliance from the new government.
    Letting fees abolished > rents rise > for those that receive accommodation benefits and whose rent has increased > the taxpayers pay out more.
    Brilliant.
