Firstly I especially do not want to see a thread I have started suddenly appear on face book without my permission
I do not want to see another " cute" pictute of pug dogs on mugs , beding etc. The same goes for unicorns and elf on the shelf and who wants Christmas bedding that will only be used at Christmas ?
I hope never to hear about Katie Hopkins or the Kardashians and please no more comparing Meggan with Kate .
There must be plenty more to add to the list so feel free.

Any of the royals because I’ve had just about enough of the over-privileged “we are normal” load of shit.

The absolutely awful misogyny posted on GN on a regular basis

Greyduster Sat 23-Dec-17 17:18:13

Greg Wallace! WHAT is Greg Wallace for? WHY is there so much of him?

KatyK Sat 23-Dec-17 17:29:37

Although he seems a nice chap, maybe some programmes where Phillip Schofield is not the host tchsmile

Mysogeny: dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained contempt of women FFS Marylizawhatever
what forum are you on? Ain't this one! This one can be political.... sometimes dominated by the gang of three who are red in tooth and claw, feminist..... yep sweetheart, I was on that particular bandwagon before you were an embryo, as were many of us, and health ....all sorts of awful medical conditions which can come with age { Gransnet.... strike a bell?)that make me give thanks for good health.And some of us can be a tad pedantic ( me included)
But mysogeny. .. strike light!!

What is the word for dislike of men?

willsmadnan Sat 23-Dec-17 18:44:49

Misandry, Annie, as I'm sure you know! Why should there be a need for either word? We are supposedly all created equal. But if a certain poster had lived in a parish where the congregation were 99.9% (and agressivly ) against the ordination of women into the Anglican church and she was a lone voice, well, then she could talk about mysogney .... sorry everyone, I have gone way off point.

Anniebach Sat 23-Dec-17 18:48:21

willsmadnan, if I knew I would not have asked

willsmadnan Sat 23-Dec-17 19:08:27

I don't believe that Anniegrin. Anyway, have as happy a Christmas as you can, and let's hope a new year is much better.

Anniebach Sat 23-Dec-17 19:24:05

Willsmadnan, may I have an apology, you have accused me of being a liar

NanaandGrampy Sat 23-Dec-17 20:00:37

If I’m brutally honest - there are some Gransnetters I’d love not to see post again (grin)

NotTooOld Sat 23-Dec-17 22:39:53

Wilma - I'm with you on the eyebrows.

MaryEliza - can't give you a link as I was not citing an actual case, just a general observation. Please note I excluded children and anything that is REALLY sexual harassment. As a woman of the world I'm sure you know what I mean.

WilmaKnickersfit Sun 24-Dec-17 00:21:12

willsmadnan read through this thread and then tell me there's no mysogeny on GN.

I thought of something else. I hope in 2018 that reality TV celebrities stop getting pregnant and having a baby like it's the fashionable thing to do.

Ginny42 Sun 24-Dec-17 02:15:02

Aging celebrities who have had long and successful careers already and now are doing documentaries in their dotage. We have Mary Berry talking about stately homes, Judi Dench telling us about her passion for trees, Chris Tarrant and Julie Walters on train journeys, and now David Jason is telling us about the spy system. Surely there are talented young people needing the work.

Over use of certain celebs on a plethora of programmes e.g. Alan Titchmarsh and Joanna Lumley. As the Spanish say 'they're even in your soup'.

eazybee Sun 24-Dec-17 08:20:10

Jeremy Corbyn
Diane Abbott
Anna Soubry
Donald Trump
Pictures of anyone's grandchildren over the age of two

AlieOxon Sun 24-Dec-17 09:21:39

Farage - what is he for?

BBbevan Sun 24-Dec-17 10:12:58

Frivolous ones.
Slug eyebrows.
Fat women in 'cold shoulder tops'. And with big tattoos.
Everyone always on their phones.
Bad table manners
Serious ones:
More cultural, arts , literature on TV , less ' celebs' and rubbish
Brexit sorted.
Trump gone

NannyTee Sun 24-Dec-17 16:26:00

Brides with tattoos on show. Yuk

Flowerpower22 Thu 28-Dec-17 13:43:30

No more BREXIT - time we canned it

tiredoldwoman Thu 28-Dec-17 15:34:10

I don't want to see my big wobbly belly in 2018 .

mollie Thu 28-Dec-17 21:52:10

Trump, of course
Examples of obscene consumption such as £40k silk dresses for dogs!!!

nannyof4 Thu 28-Dec-17 21:53:18

Nothing bothers or annoys me i just go with the flow,take me or leave me

Feelingmyage55 Thu 28-Dec-17 23:06:26

Please no more X rated TVs programmes that I didn't know were X rated ....... Or should I say 18? I would rather not have to switch off after an eyeful!

merlotgran Thu 28-Dec-17 23:18:42

Wilma, saying you don't like somebody's hat is misogyny? shock

WilmaKnickersfit Fri 29-Dec-17 02:43:30

No? confused Didn't mean to misspell misogyny BTW. One of the definitions of misogyny is the belittling of women and that's what some posters are doing on the 'hat' thread. At least I think that's what I was thinking about when I posted but I honestly can't remember! tchgrin
