    I once made plans for a boys night out- a meal in an all you can eat Brazillian Rodizio. I invited all the men at work and no women.

    When the women at work heard about this they were outraged not to be invited. I then invited them all, and none of them attended.

    Now the girls have organised a trip to watch Fifty Shades of Grey, but haven't invited any guys.

    I don't want to watch this film, but am offended not to be invited when they insisted on an invite to the boys meal.

    Who agrees?

    You meekly gave in to their insistences and then they didn't bother turn up? Well done on the women you work with for trolling you.

    Confront them and then don't show up if/when you're invited

    I think their trying to prove a point, either that or watching 50 shades would be uncomfortable with their male colleagues, it is double standards if it was a trip to the pub not 100% sure for the film only because of the type of the film. Have you insisted on an invite or you could gatecrash haha

    So if you didn't want to go why are you offended not to be invited?

    They don't have to invite people that they don't want. You need to get a life if you were 'offended' by that.

    Are you one of these people that gets 'offended' by everything in life?

    Surely you would feel a little bit awkward watching 50 shades of grey with a bunch of women?

    Well I know for a fact if a guy was coming to watch 50 shades of grey with us we'd tease him no end, I'd say most guys would feel very embarrassed about watching a film like 50 shades of grey with a bunch of girls.

    The film's gonna be a steaming pile of ****e so you're not missing out but on principle yes I do agree it was petty of them to make a big fuss about being invited to the meal and then not bothering to show up. Workplace politics in general can be a bit of a headache.

    Watching a film that is aimed at women, i'm sure most guys would feel awkward about watching it with a group of girls, unless he's gay of course.

    I don't see why it's aimed at women
