GUEST BLOGGER – KATIE HALL
Don’t get me wrong, feminism is excellent, I love it. Women should vote and men should wear snoods and everybody should earn the same and have the same amount of land (or maybe that’s Communism?). But equal is not the same as identical. And so whilst it’s wonderful that we live in a world where women can wee standing up (©She Pee 2012) and men can GHD without causing anyone to LOL, we must never lose sight of the fundamental differences between men and women.
Helpfully, I have listed them below.
1. 62% of women believe that Lee Latchford-Evans is the most talented member of the band Steps, compared to just 14% of men
2. Men think that an ipod is heavier when it is full of music.
3. Women find thin moustaches ‘a bit creepy’.
4. Men can tell the difference between a mole and a vole.
5. Women think that ‘Elton John’ is a euphemism.
6. Men think that it’s pointless when a barista puts a shape in the foam of a cappuccino. Women think it is ‘a bit of fun’.
7. Women think that you can clearly see the ghost of a young boy in Three Men and a Baby, men think that it is a cardboard cut out.
8. Men believe that Ross and Rachel were on a break.
9. Women sometimes think that when they use someone else’s pen, it retains their handwriting for a bit. Men know that this is silly.
10. Men always suspect Colonel Mustard in the popular family board games, Cluedo.
So whilst we embark on this brave new world, ignited by the flames of feminism , setting alight to the architecture of sexism and stereotyping, please just bear in mind that we are all equal but not identical.
