@kfield: I think there is more risk for the ladies getting your cooties than vice versa.

In their dreams -- they should be so lucky!

@kfield: I really like the concept I've seen popping up lately that a single-stall toilet is for both genders. It seems much more efficient than labeling one women and one men.

@Studleylee: I guess xxxxxxx is right out...

I know I'd get spanked if I used it.

Another one is saying something has gone "pear shaped" ... can anyone guess to what this refers?

I guess "Tits-up" is right out.............

I actually heard a guy say this back in 1999," the cpu then went 'Tits-up' and we had to reset it."

Many years back I was going through a print catalog looking for connectors.  Nowhere was "male/female" mentioned, the descriptions were all "plug/socket".  Totally confusing


I used to work for an organization that marked its bathrooms (washrooms/toilets/water closets etc - please select your personal favourite) as "plugs" and "sockets".

God/Goddess help us if "they" ever learn about male/female connectors.

Maybe I'm an old fossil but I think this is all hot air.  Most people don't care.  A few years ago, this was a hot topic.  At the time I read a book (I think it was SF) and the misguided author used s/he throughout to be politically correct.  It was a torture to read.  Remember the uproar over the term master/slave as used in computing?  I thought engineers were above such silliness.

God/Goddess help us if "they" ever learn about male/female connectors.
