Re: How do I protect myself from my wifes excessive spending?

Ok.

You need to refamiliarise yourself with the meaning of the following:

Empowerment
Sentences
Logical.

To slightly misquote Inigo, those words don't mean what you seem to think they mean. Especially the latter.

Some gender- bias free words: condescending, patronising (though now I think about it, patron, pat - , father?) inaccurate, amusing.
You do seem to expend a lot of energy on writing a lot of abject nonsense.

That would be your opinion, flower.

All your posts are gold, but not necessarily for the reasons you may think.

You are a hysterical knee-jerk poster, known for getting overly emotional in the majority of threads you participate in.. All of this "flower" and "babe" stuff is equally cringeworthy... you just try way too hard to appear intellectual when in fact you have every little in terms of worth to contribute to discussions other than criticizing others for their opinions. This is the last time I will respond to you for this very reason as I just don't respect anything you have to say, whether I agree or not.

Result.

Whether you agree or not? I. Am. Cut. To. The. Quick.



You really need to work on your reading skills - and dust off your sarcasm detector. You do realise that this frothing outburst of yours is entirely emotional, hysterical and irrational, don't you?

As for criticising others... That's exactly what you've done. Do frequently.

I have to say, having this delightful personality description from you (wholly inaccurate but very, very funny) only goes to show how far from most marks you are.You lash out and accuse in a very childish way. But, you know, your prerogative.


Oh what power the giftie gie us, to see oursels others see us.

(Apologies to Rabbie Burns, for any and all typos).

Re: How do I protect myself from my wifes excessive spending?

Thank you. I was hoping for your personal definition to be honest.

I know the textbook definition but I couldn't really match it with his post.
I think it's save to say that Chuff's answer would have been the same wheter you are male or female.

It's what a feminist calls a man when he explains something she doesn't like.

It was the condescending tone he used, he often uses that tone particularly (but not exclusively) when responding to women. Plus his assumption that the poster he quoted didn’t understand the OP.

I use the same tone with men or women because I do not give the slightest toots about what gender anyone is, I just judge them on what they say. If that nonsense is the best you can come up with then you must be a wee bit desperate to get any brief level of attention that you apparently can't seem to get via actually contributing intelligently to a discussion.

Nope.

It was a wholly unnecessary explanation based on the premise I didn't understand something. So it fits.

If yes, as I said, thats your opinion.

In this context it just look like there's a huge chip on someones shoulder, thats just my opinion btw

E: I just really hate that term, I know mansplaining is an issue, especially in some work environments but come on...That just really triggered me (another term I don't like)

I understand it historically referred to people, mostly women, who fought for their basic human rights in society.
