    Binkly, you should know only women are allowed to make chauvinistic statements these days!

    Goodness, how out of character for Binkley to have fun with the Anxiety Closet ladies!

    Today’s lesson: Never make snide comments about a woman wearing horns and carrying a spear.

    Why do women get to call each other girls and men are supposed to only call them women?

    I once worked in an office where a large number of our clientele were older gentlemen. One woman in our office was insulted because one elderly gent referred to us as “gals” and used endearments like “hun” in a non-threatening, older-gent way. I thought it was sweet, but that one woman was very upset and actually told him to stop (and wasn’t very polite about it: “My NAME is ‘Martha’, and I am N-O-T a ‘gal’!”) I guess I’m not too progressive…and I’m also TERRIBLE with directions!

    When you get to a certain age, being called a “girl” is almost mockery – like trying to make someone who is obviously not young, feel younger. I guess I wouldn’t ever think of walking into a room of middle aged men and calling them boys either. Just seems disrespectful somehow.

    I have a 30 year old nephew that refers to women as “Gals”. Pretty sure he’s still a virgin.

    Except to “good ol’ boys” and “the old boys’ club”.
    But I guess that’s a “guy” thing.

    “You throw like a girl” – insult to male ball players.
    “What is this, the Powder Puff league? " – insult to male football players.
    “Girly man” – SNL comedic insult to male weight lifters.
    And you wonder why many adult women don’t like to be called girls or gals? Certainly, use of the term needs to be taken in context, but as BluePumpkin said, after a certain age, calling a woman a girl can be disrespectful or mocking or both.

    Look, he’s even presenting his bare buttocks to be spanked roundly.

    No . . . I can’t say I’ve ever said that to any grown man either. It just sounds weird to me.
