    Why men behave like pigs

    Here's some other evidence. Boys don't fight anymore in school - not at all in primary, and hardly at all in secondary. This is according to my daughters fwiw, and it's possible they're attending unusual schools, but still - fighting in school was utterly routine when I was a kid, and seems to...

    Why men behave like pigs

    Actually deleted a post there, came out more facetious than I intended. I dunno @Squiggle when I called you out I thought you'd just say "oh yeah sorry" I actually thought that's what you had done when you said "I wasn't absolving anyone" ... and now we're off on this tangent I don't really...

    Why men behave like pigs

    We can just ask people what they meant, can't we? I don't think my theory absolves anyone. Do you disagree?

    Why men behave like pigs

    Reading over the thread again I don't think there's any suggestion that men's bad behaviour is anything other than their own responsibility. Is there? Have I missed something? There are some people saying that women can behave badly too, but nobody is saying that's why men behave like pigs. At...

    @Squiggle your anger is justified, but I don't think it's your place to absolve people's abusers

    Why men behave like pigs

    Dunno the guy or the situation, but it'd be a fairly typical guy thing to refuse to back down in the heat if the moment. Doesn't mean he didn't change his mind when he thought about it later on

    FWIW all victims of sexual crime I know are men, though they were all boys when it happened.

    General election 2020

    A former boss of mine hired a lad after Ieft that used to parachute off tall things, including poolbeg tower, at night. He'd work out the height, and how many seconds he'd have to drop before deploying the chute, then climb up in the dark, jump and count. Like - what the actual fuck?

    Why men behave like pigs

    Also I don't ever remember being a woman being lecherous towards me. I'm feeling disappointed with my life now. Someone flirted with me in my local just before Christmas, and it hadn't happened in so long (apart from with Mrs. egg_ like) that I was buzzing for about a week afterwards

    I don't think anyone claims that data centres provide long-term jobs, do they? Amazon/FB/Google employ thousands of people in Ireland, but not in their data centres

    Why men behave like pigs

    Well this thread took an unexpected turn FWIW I don't think a woman has ever been mean to me, bar the usual teenage humiliations.

    Why men behave like pigs

    Men will also kill each other so their mates will not laugh at them. And themselves. IMO understanding the status games we play well enough to be able to change them is the only hope we have of fixing that
