I hereby nominate myself to head the rebooting of this prime brand. I think I know what women want.
the goodbye news post had 13 comments, at least 3 of them from avid male readers
So my account has gone forever then?
I'm still furious that my analysis of Alison [something]é's agony aunting was deleted. It was some of my more enlightened work.
You did get the impression reading it none of the writers had ever met a woman.
can somebody explain the concept of the lipster to me.
really? bit condescending? it's not as if DiS is excessively macho
they need to read 1 article on red wine, 1 article on clothes and 1 article on hollyoaks.
that was the basic idea.
I think there's a gulf between the concept and the actuality. I don't think it was meant to be condescendingly saying, "this is what girls should like," rather it was supposed to be in the same style as magazines like Marie-Claire but catering to an audience of girls whose primary interest was (indie-ish?) music.
I don't think anyone ever made a big deal of advertising it on this site, no attempts were made to get the girls of DiS to go there instead, it was more known here because we discovered the database was shared.
It really was as condescending as people on here made out.
What I saw I didn't like but then I'm not the target audience. I'd have said that any time I've read a women's magazine or an issue of Just Seventeen I've found them patronising too. There's clearly a market for it, though.
I just don't think the concept of such a site, a music and magazine site aimed at women, is necessarily a patronising one, even if that's how it turned out.
I thought you meant "we assumed from the concept it was worse than it was" but you actually meant it the other way round.
I'm genuinely sad that it's gone, it gave us such a wonderful catch-all phrase. That and some truly Grade-A responses from stealthy
Sure, only a handful of internet nerds will get it, but that's not my problem.
and you as a defendant in 'Stealthy vs all womankind', the world's largest ever class-action libel suit.
make it happen.
and have him teaming up with ed the duck and duckman to fight crime. with sexy results!
Should be good innit.
And defends himself using a Geordie accent.
This is all set on the planet Mars
I prefer "In my defence, your honour, I was acting under the influence of Geoffrey Boycott"
and can suddenly understand the whole gender.
I feel no shame. That was a top film. It taught me so much about how women really think.
It would have been a whole lot better if they'd just chopped out that rubbish sub plot about he depressed girl and left it as a short running stupid romantic comedy.
but what's my excuse?
in 18 months he wakes up as a drunk anti-semite
I can already see it in my mind's eye. It's like that Matthew McConnaughy film with all the women chasing him across San Francisco. Except instead of bridal dresses and bouquets, they're wearing polka dot and brandishing ukuleles with nails in the headstock.
Too much information Philty Animal
I think you're confusing 'film' and 'deodorant advert'
Stealthy called shotgub obv
Shotgub is my pet name for my cock. I've no idea how he found that out though.
