    When I was a kid, the men and women didn't separate so that the men could watch sports on TV because there was no TV.
    Retired. Nowhere to go and plenty of time to get there.

    I'm pretty sure being deprived of a silly football game doesn't fall within the definition of discrimination.

    Sorry Camper6, I am not aware of your customs
    in North America.

    Any parties that I have are in the evening and no
    TV is on, I normally have background music and we
    all chat then depending on how much drink is taken
    people get up and dance with each other.

    I meant no offence, I compared the situation with
    my own experiences.

    To you it's silly. To me it's silly that you don't want to watch it and don't want someone else who loves it to watch it.

    A but then. It's a male thing. You wouldn't understand. But the stands are full almost every game.

    What if World Cup football was on?

    Evening parties are fun. We are talking about a Holiday like New Years Day. It lasts all day.

    What men and women have in common isn't even close. Women are more easily upset than men. Take for instance cleaning dog crap off the bottom on a sneaker. Everyone knows that cleaning the groves is easier when done using a tooth brush. Using your wifes or girfriends brush puts women into a panic. Men not so much, just rinse and it's good to go.


    When it comes to food. Men have 2 motivations: hunger and hanky panky, and they can't tell them apart. If you see a gleam in his eyes, make him a sandwich.

    So, use your own toothbrush. No biggie.

    No, not with my family and/or friends get-togethers, but I think that such is normal.

    Common interests.
