She-Shed is just wrong. It just sounds ... wrong.


The opposite of Man-Cave and quite a trend nowadays.

Oh, I know it is, and I get the concept and don't think that's necessarily wrong. I'm just saying the word makes me think of a place that prostitute turns tricks.

Erm...

So what does that make a Man-Cave?

A place where a guy hangs out and masturbates?

Oh wait... I see your point now.

Man-Cave sounds straight up juvenile. It's like Batcave ... only less with a mix of cave man in there.

It's not the idea of either one, but the words we use that I think is dumb.

Everyone needs a personal space that suits them, but the words she-shed and man cave are dumb.

Yes, whores have congress with their customers. If the customer is visiting from another country, then it's foreign relations.

Just wait until the Latinos get PC and start attacking their own language for its gendered nature.

LOL ... that reminds me of the announcement from the French Academy or whatever last week, who after long discussion decided that the correct phrase was La Covid-19.

Sometimes I just want to scream at the top of my voice...
NO MORE POLITICALLY CORRECT BULLONEY! I am done,
stick a fork in me done with it all.
Now I feel I should bake some cookies but I just started
my diet!

Un-freakin'-believable. The United Nations is schooling people on language usage!?

Are there really people that read these admonitions and say, "okay...I will now proceed to do as you say".

Please forgive me for explaining to some customer that it takes a lot of manpower to accommodate your extra request and will increase costs substantially.

Mine actually does!!

Not sure how being called a wife/husband somehow equates to unequal...??

I'll admit to being somewhat puzzled.

Yep, although, I have to say, this is much ado about nothing.

They suggested things like "replace policeman with police officer" ... I think most people have already made these changes years ago.

The last time I heard the word Congressman was with Larry McDonald back in the 80s I think.

Firemen have been fire fighters for years.

There's better things to be upset at the UN for.

“What you say matters.” ... states the tweet.


Great, then this means the UN will take my words to heart when I tell them to eff off. NOBODY CARES what the UN wants, doesn't want, thinks, or doesn't think. They are the definition of a worthless appendage that should be severed from the body, burned, and then tilled into the ground to feed future growth.
