    OP you are so over traditional and your gender roles seem way too rigid. I hate it when guys call me babe. It's so patronising.

    There is so much more to a woman than wearing a dress and giggling inanely.
    Just as there is so much more to being a man than puffing out your chest and swilling beer.

    I'll carry on drinking pints of ale, saying the word '****' (rhyming with punt), calling my man beautiful and carry on wearing floral dresses and red lipstick at the same time.

    Yeah... something tells me OP, that them saying "Lad", "Dude", "*****es", is not the reason that they aren't having sex with you.

    ever! just as I would expect a girl never to get with me for addressing her as *****!
    Does it not strike you there's a difference between calling someone a dude which has positive connotations and a ***** which err, doesn't.
    Would most women ever care if you said it in a light hearted way?

    If you were a man then act like a man regardless of sexuality. If you are a woman then act like a woman regardless of sexuality.
    You can't act like your 'gender'. You can only act like yourself.

    Yeah, they are so idiotic. I met up with some friends for drinks the other day and one of the guys there's gf was on about how she loves going to strip clubs with guys. She was on about how she's been there with some of her banker friends and had a good time or whatever. My BFF and I just looked at her like :lolwut:.

    News has it that her boyfriend dumped her today, I'm not surprised.

    I say dude and man all the time. If this puts a guy off, he's not the kind of guy I give a flying **** about getting to know anyway, so it works out.

    Seriously, are you living in the Victorian era? Does my vernacular offend you?
    Then I shall of course immediately start wearing all pink and talk like the dizzy tarts on my facebook: "oh hey darlin u lukin gd bbz xxx"

    I don't call girls babe. I call them beautiful if that is what I think of them.

    You're the one generalising her. I never said women had to wear certain clothes or anything. Women can wear whatever they want, they can talk about what ever they want, what im talking about is addressing someone in an appropriate manner. Mannerisms in this country have gone down the pan.

    Its just women cant still show authority and still be a woman without using such words, believe me. If im in a bar or a club, I'll instantly start speaking to women who drink out of wine glasses, cocktail glasses, vodka glasses who show a bit more class than just succumbing to the chavette norm that society wants!

    I WANT A REAL WOMAN WHO SHOWS HER WOMANLY WAYS! GOD PUT A WOMAN ON THE EARTH TO ACT LIKE A WOMAN SO MEN WOULD BE ATTRACTED TO HER WOMANLY WAYS AND WANT TO GET UP ON IT!

    that is all!

    Fair enough, but rarely outside of certain areas in London does anyone actually say 'brah'. TSR isn't a good place if you're looking for real English slang...

    Can I just say, that the OP is criticising women for being manly, whereas his supposedly masculine username actually has one of those 'x', 'love marks' whatever you call them in. Real men don't put an 'x' in their messages.
