...reflects a diminishing 1950s mentality that should still be applicable today. Practice the broad shouldered march into the gale...it's so much more refreshing. And all this from a dyke:
''I like men and get on much better with them one to one than I do women, who can be a bit emotional. But part of what makes a man a man is that he never takes offence! When you see sad-sacks like Neil Lyndon (author of ''No More Sex War: the Failures of Feminism)...you think ''Men's Lib'' - that's the opposite of a man, to me. Just shut up and take your lumps. And then we can all have a laugh''
It's laced with some modern ideas of sociality, but that definitive phrase ''Shut up and take your lumps'' strikes a bass note in me...
