Ladies Lingerie and Political Correctness Gone Mad

by Neil Bamforth

A Professor from Kings College in London has upset a feminist during a visit to the USA. He is ‘of an age’ when you could actually tell a joke without fear of some politically correct idiot in serious need of a life getting all upset.

Thankfully, regardless of official pressure, he has, quite rightly, declined to apologise.

So, what did he say to upset the feminazi?

He got into a lift she was in – perhaps she got in at the same time – who knows or cares.

Harking back to the days when the major stores had lift operators who would announce in which direction the lift was travelling along with what was for sale on each floor, the professor said, as he got in the lift, “Ladies lingerie, going down”.

It was a ‘lame joke’. He admits it was a pretty lame joke but, none the less, it was an innocent joke.

Offensive? Get a life.

This American woman who was in the lift – apparently a lecturer on gender equality (no surprise there then), made a formal complaint.

Get a bloody life, you ridiculous creature.

The British professor has, quite rightly, refused to apologise. He has done nothing wrong – apart from making a lame joke.

The ‘authorities’ – whoever they are – clearly have the balls of a castrated flea and have demanded he apologise.

He has said “No” and I applaud him.

Political correctness – whether coming from feminazis or various other far-left groups – is a blemish on common sense and the ability to live and breathe without fear of offending some fragile little soul.

A lame and dated joke it may have been Professor, but keep cracking them mate.

    Feminazis, seriously. AYUP there are no right leaning snowflakes are there. Fuck off with this bullshit.

        Let me break it down for you then. Right leaning snowflakes get bent about an eye make up joke but are okay when joke about someone dying is uttered. One of those things is just not like the other.

          So an old joke about an old kind of department store is not like a joke about people dying? Of course not, but this kind of contorted touchiness is not like a personal comment or insult or anything like it. Reading one’s list of remembered offenses into everything one sees or hears is a little too much like Astrology, thank you. First Floor, housewares – why let me tell you about my 24th ex-husband. . .

          “Fuck off” however is indeed an insult, meant to be nasty and offensive – to hurt, to diminish the self respect of the other. One of these things is not like Lady’s underwear.

            I’m not bent about the elevator joke itself, I’m bent about the feminazi shit, please don’t get it twisted Glenn. As far as his far left leaners get put out about (insert whatever here) I think I have shown we are not the only ones, when they get bent about jokes on eye make up but not people dying.

            Comedienne a few weeks ago, made the joke that Sarah Sanders, dolt 45’s spokesperson use the ashes from her lies to create a nice smoky eye make up scenario and the right went crazy mad about it. Last week one of his communications people thought she was making a real funny joke saying that John McCain’s opinion did not matter on a torture loving nominee because he’s dying anyway.

        You’re in trouble now there Norman and let me fucking tell you this: you call me a feminazi and I’ll kick you square in your tiny fucking balls. Now that’s for feminazi, as to lingerie comments made on elevators I’ll laugh and shake you hand so there’s that. Now you’ve gone and fucked up your fine little article with that little word that means bad things. Vade in pace culus.

          I’m quick on me feet πŸ˜‚

          I use the term feminazi as a descriptive term for extreme feminists who would complain if a man scratched his head.

          The term is not derogatory to ordinary feminists who want no more than equality in all things.

          Besides….if my balls are that tiny you’d better be a bloody good shot with the shoe 😘

        I don’t either Neil. I know what a snowflake is because we have lots and lots of them around here in the wintertime but right leaning? I’m sure I don’t understand what dear Jess must be speaking about but I do get from her remark that you have made her very, very angry. You don’t make me angry and I don’t mind being called a snowflake or a lingerie wearing feminazi if no one was hurt by it but I suppose you don’t know until they punch you in the nose or tell you to fuck off.

          Look up feminazi and you’ll see why people might be a bit angry. The right have decided to call us “delicate little snowflakes” if we get upset about how things are going right now.

            Feminazi : ‘An extreme or militant feminist’ – rather than one who rightly desires respect and equality I guess.

            I suppose feminazi’s might get upset?

    This has nothing to do with political correctness but everything to do with common courtesy. Totally rude to make a comment like that to a woman you don’t know.

        I didn’t read an elevator full of people then, or now. As I read it, just two people in the elevator.

          The Professor walked into an elevator – the lady may have walked in with him or been in it already.

          He told a lame joke that hurt nobody.

          The lady made a formal complaint.

          It is pathetic.

          End of.

          Perhaps that makes a small difference, but still. Should I sue the hospital chaplain who insisted in praying for me “in Jesus’ name” while I was semi-conscious on a gurney last month? I’m tired of being a victim you know.

          You realize I’m talking about a sense of proportion here.

          I agree that “Feminazi” is a fraught term and gratuitously nasty, but using it doesn’t make anyone “the right”

      I’m confused. What’s rude? His innocent comment about the Lingerie Department? If so: SERIOUSLY? I’ve been insulted a time or two or three but never like this. I’ve been called bitch, cunt, whore, fat broad (once upon a time I guess), chunky cheese, no tits, and on and on and on. If this poor bastard had joked about the lingerie department in my presence I would have laughed my ass off and thanked him for making my day. This has EVERYTHING to do with PC dude/dudette.

    My third husband got himself into trouble several times due to his smart ass remarks to women. One woman punched him in the face. I had to beat her off with my purse because he was bleeding all over the floor. I had to insist that if he was going to hit on women at least be on first name terms.

    • Glenn R. Geist Reply

      May 16, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      So “saying lady’s underwear” “in response to what floor do you want?” is discourteous? Rude? Insulting? Lascivious? What about jokes about getting on a train? All aboard? What do you mean by that?

      I’m sorry if your husband was rude, but this simply isn’t rude. It’s an old joke and I’ve heard it a thousand times – or perhaps you’re too young to remember when floors were announced in department stores. Do you remember the British TV series “are you being served?” It began with a voice calling off floors in Grace Brother’s department store.

      I could remind you that punching someone in the face can rightly put you in court and in jail, but I’ll spare you the stocks and stones thing because all men are pigs, you know so anything they say. . . .

    Which party has repeatedly insisted that pornography is America’s number one problem? What party insisted that words like Breast be banned on the Internet? (not makin this up) Can I laugh at their extremism, but it’s OK when we do it? We have more important problems than looking for secret codes in stale jokes.

    If I had a dime for every sermonizer who made snarky jokes about Jews, I’d have a lot of dimes. I’d also have wasted a lot of them trying to sue or march demanding that the government make it illegal to insult me in forms that only I can detect with a microscope and a code book. So sure – they’re all “undergarments for those who chose the female gender of their own free will and in recognition that gender is a choice” and they shall not be mentioned by anyone pretending to be an elevator operator. Victoria’s secrets shall not be revealed unto me and so saith the Lord.

    I’ve recently been chewed out for questioning the notion that “snowflake” is anti-Semitic. Something to do with crematory ashes. No evidence needed. No evidence tolerated and argument is proof of being the enemy. Every word and action has to be taken apart and of course every word hides offense of some sort, if only we work at it.

    As I noted in Facebook, I am shocked that this comment was even even seriously considered as a complaint. It was not a comment made to anyone in particular, just an off the cuff remark. It may soon reach the point where males will fear even speaking in the presence of females. Women have the right to say immediately that they find something offensive rather than create an international incident, Although in this incident the woman was a professor of women’s studies and many of them do have a tendency to react to just about every thing.

    My apologies Mr Bamforth, I should have known better. I’m just lazy at times when it comes to researching yours or anyone’s posts. Trust but verify was always my mantra, need to get back to it. Especially since the majority of what you write is vague and biased.

      This may come as a surprise to you Bobbie but I really like you – well, in an internet sort of way as I’ve never met you of course….

      I’m not so old and stupid to not actually read what people think of me. On the one hand I have a hide like a rhino so I never get upset or annoyed by it but, on the other hand, you’d be surprised how I’ve actually modified my behavior in reality…..well…..a bit anyroad…;-)

      Due in no small part to people like you and Jess.

      I do see other sides to mine. Whether I agree with them or not I do think about them.

      Doesn’t mean I’ll stop getting a good slanging match going though πŸ™‚

    Are any y’all old enough to remember the TV show Petticoat Junction? I wonder if that family values program about a railroad junction named for a clothes line with lady’s underwear” festooned on it could even get by the holy office of puritanism today.

    Lotsa curves, you bet
    Even more, when you get
    To the junction

    No, probably not. Not that we’ve evolved into a prudery that makes the Victorians seem lascivious and Oliver Cromwell could almost support.
