I wonder if you could please tell me something that is rather puzzling me at the moment. It is only a small thing and I really don't want to take up a lot of your time. I think Strictly May be on tv soon, if not now, and I expect you want to settle down in front of it. smile

The thing is, norty words in thread titles are allowed on MN. But not on here. Is that because we are the big girls and, therefore, expected to behave in a well brought up, ladylike manner.

If this is the reason, I quite understand smile and I will in future, if I have a future on GN, try to avoid the very worst of them. Like tits, bum, and bollocks.

Thank you for your very kind attention. smile

Can I have Cari or Lara please?

Gonegirl Sat 07-Sep-19 18:44:43

Perhaps not Lara. She is the scary one.

😱 gonegirl how could you. Such language. Made me blush under my ankle length, high neck, corseted gowns. Even my table legs under their voluminous coverings were quivering. 😊

Gonegirl Sat 07-Sep-19 18:52:39


They need shocking, that lot.

I am clutching my pearls even as I type! Such language! Surely we should be saying breasts (although "bosoms" might be more discreet), derriere, and scrotum with contents?

Or perhaps "down below man parts"? And "ladies chest proturberances"?

Or we could just lighten up and say fuck it all, call it what you like after all we are (supposedly) grown ups!

They are only words, all in the Oxford English Dictionary, therefore allowable.

We are over 21 FFS!!!

To be serious, I think they're ageist and imagine we're all singing along to Vera Lynn and sucking on our Werthers.

Riverwalk Sat 07-Sep-19 19:57:02

Mind you, can't say I blame them .... having just read the Slipper thread! grin

MawB Sat 07-Sep-19 20:11:44

Does anybody remember the "scrotum waxing" thread? 🀣🀣🀣🀣
