Lady parts... gross.

My co-worker has been complaining about his financial state lately.  I told him he spends too much on his car.  He said he spends $800 a month to keep this fancy Civic on the road.  I think he pays a similar amount in rent.

I drive the shittiest car out of everybody so people can see where my savings come from.  There are several people who earn a lot less than me that drive fancier cars so I hope they aren't too surprised if they feel more broke than me.

OMG thank you SOOOO much for changing the subject!

You're well within your rights to change the subject back to Overheard at Work anti-mustachianism, but can we do it without insults? Thanks.

You're right, I apologize--men can have uteruses too.

It was a joke, people.  I like lady parts.

Another coworker of mine just paid off his car.  I was trying to suggest he should invest his cash flow now.  I think it sunk in but he's eager to spend a bit.  He has a house so I can't blame him for wanting to renovate.

Well.

I think I will let a bunch of the other women comment, as well as me.

But in the meantime, please contemplate that itís possible you donít recognize that what you said is objectively gross, even if you donít see it quite yet.

Do we know Wrenchturner's gender?  A lot of people on the forums thought I was a man, for quite a long time.
And at least the men on here are sparing us from their prostate problems.  I guess because those don't get major until after the normal age of retirement?  Seriously, in New Zealand I am seeing so many ads re prostate problems, it is getting tiresome.

Sorry, no work stories here, the joys of retirement and all that.

Yeah.

The idea that one gender or the other would need to not comment on their issues because it would offend the delicate sensibilities of the other gender...

Just seems a bit gross.

And sorry, but ďI like lady bitsĒ ... ?

Like, sexualizing ďbitsĒ somehow negates the BS?

Just... ugh. Women were talking about a work issue. That is within the subject of this thread.

Maybe when we are talking about legitimate issues involving women, the only two reactions do not have to be ďgrossĒ and ďI like lady bitsĒ?

I'm not offended by the use of the term lady parts. In fact, I find it quite inoffensive. Much better than vajayjay

Awesome.

So, do you think there is something wrong with talking about periods as they pertain to work?

And doing it in a way that does not depend on whether men like lady parts?

Have I missed something here? I've read the thread. I'm not offended by lady parts, by talking about lady parts, or by any function of said lady parts. I'm not offended by men parts either.

Okay.

And I am a woman who is irritated as hell by having men say that talking about periods in this thread is icky and that we need to change the subject. And that ďliking lady partsĒ somehow matters. So we are 1 to 1.

Letís see how this shakes out.

I read the lady parts comment as a light hearted silly way of diving into another subject. The subject change doesn't bother me at all since it was actually going back to the original intention of the thread..... I don't think it was intended as genuine disgust or a subject change for any reason other than that.
