Yesterday was helping a friend with the Womens’ Society stall at our Freshers’ Week.
So many lovely people, so much to talk about, I learnt a lot from all the weird and wonderful people that came over to chat. But there’s always one… And they always find me (a little like mosquitos & just as irritating).
“Oh, so you’re the man-hating society, are you?” he barked at me.
“No hello first? I hate to break it to you, but the womens’ society is not about men. I don’t hate men, I just hate idiots” I said to him (luckily have had to deal with this same tired old “argument”, so the sentence slipped off the tongue with a satisfying smoothness).
“You’re just a reverse chauvinist”
“There’s no such thing as reverse chauvinism, chauvinism is chauvinism. What’s your point, would you like to join?” (I have my moments of smart-arsery)
He just stormed off, muttering.
There’s always one.
