A Woman’s Place



Our panel for tomorrow night’s Broadsheet on the Telly remains shy of what might be considered an ideal gender balance.

Despite repeated pleas for female company we are rushing headlong into another Thursday night/Friday morning ‘sausage-fest’.

If you are well-informed, chatty and a woman and would like to be on the telly please send a short bio to broadsheet@broadsheet.ie marked ‘Broadsheet on the Telly’ by 6pm today.

Yesterday: Your Face Here

Broadsheet On the Telly TONIGHT!

    Ah here lads.

    I enjoyed last week’s ladfest but you can’t be doing this if there’s no women on it. zero contrast

      1. Tony

        You know – male perspective – female perspective sorta contrast.

        Funbags? Jaysus Anne are you a woman at all? ;)

        1. scottser

          hey – if a woman wants to call her funbags ‘ funbags’, then you should just back off buddy.
          funbag away there, anne.

          1. Anne

            I’d venture that you’d be correct..but you’re p*ssing against the wind explaining these things to a man whose last pair of funbags he saw were his mammies.

          2. Frilly Keane

            better than Jumper Puppies

            ffs, someone clearly isn’t getting any

            infact thats more sexism in play there
            T1Ts get Jumper Puppies
            Bollix, Balls, Dick, Mickie, Willie, ….. untouched

            Is that cause they’re boy bits ?
            what about female Moobs ?
            or are Boobs ok Bodge

            36DDs ok?

          1. Badat-da-dahhhh...diddley, oompph-pah pahhhh...

            *settles for AND GETS a hard time.

            Lookit, this is NOT my job.
            If you fuppers are determined to fight each other’s virtual selves, have at it…

            I just try to make you look more comical
            So shoot me.

    1. classter

      ‘Ah here lads.’

      They have specifically put out a call for women so as to have some gender balance.
      What do you want from them?

      1. Tony

        Oh right claster. Sorry if I wasn’t making meself clear there. I want BS on the telly to be as appealing to both men and women as the website itself is and has always been. I enjoyed last weeks BS telly but I reckon a mix of men and women on the panel would be more interesting and provide more contrast. is that fair enough?

        1. Johnny Keenan

          I thinks that’s the balance BS are looking for Tony. So women have to submit their details and go through a brief process like I did. It’s not that difficult really.

  2. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    If you let me wear a red dress and a blonde wig, and you allow me to read my lines off a second monitor I can do a good impression.

  3. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I hate to say this, but I think you’re only making it more difficult for yourselves.
    You’re gonna need at least two females now to have any sort of balance.
    Or an EXTREMELY brave one to go it alone.

  4. rotide

    The desperate need for equality optics is reaching hitherto unseen levels of pearl clutching.


          1. Starina

            it’s tough being a lady on the t’internet. sure i’ll put the word out and see if any of my more well-spoken lady friends are interested too

  5. Frilly Keane

    Ah give over

    It’s on too late for most people
    Sur’ one’ve the bucks last week looked like he was just pulled from the bed

    And there’s also the lingering snot from when the place went full Trumpanzie and didn’t, couldn’t or wouldn’t, control Bodger’s clearly inherent misogyny

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      2:45am for me. This would be better suited to a Saturday morning. You know, like Crackerjack, Swap Shop, the Monkees, Catch the Pigeon et al…..

      1. Frilly Keane

        yet that “psychopathy” was a perfect and acceptable fit for all the men looking for election

        nobody seemed to mind a male candidate with 5 kids from 3 different girls

        but a female candidate with 5 kids from 3 different lads would have had a very response

        The whole thing was two faced and sexist

        Make that a Show Topic Bodger
        You’ll have no problem getting screen fillers with jumper puppies then

          1. Frilly Keane

            I’m in quarantine now Millie

            but maybe we could a Birds of a Feather

            who wants to produce?
            Mickie fla could do the set design

            I can do an Essex accent brillo – au’rye darlin’

    2. Clampers Outside!

      “clearly inherent misogyny”

      ….because he declared he wouldn’t vote for a despicable person just because that person happened to be the proprietor of female genitals?
      That’s what makes Bodger a misogynist?

      LOLS !

      And lots of them FFS

    3. Anne

      You’re gone a bit bitter since you were given the aul heave ho on Fridays aren’t you?

      Next you’ll be calling them mysognists for not posting your tripe like.

      You realise anyone whose not a Clinton fan does not for a misogynist.

      Closer to home, would you say anyone critical of Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan was a misogynist? No you wouldn’t, unless you want to look like a dope.

        1. Anne

          Parted ways I suppose is the PR term for these things.

          Didnt you tell us yourself your last effort about the apollo house campaign got deleted to the trash bin? And the one before that got the bin treatment too?

          They probably have you marked as spam at this stage : )

          1. Enter Sandman

            Let’s see your articles Anne. I well remember you whining here because a photo you sent in wasn’t published. People in glasshouses …

          2. Frilly Keane

            the fact that I have to repeat this all again
            yet again
            Suggests to me that behind the keyboard you, as the driver behind “Anne” have some personality disorder
            but my gut instinct is to say “gaw’ love her”

            I have had two, that’s 2, 1 + 1, Frill-Bits denied by HQ
            One was Christmas Day 2016 (and for everyone’s information – Apollo House wasn’t mentioned anywhere in it )
            the other was “Folly Keen, VIP” from April 2016; A diary blog’ella about that weeks’ IFTAs event in the style of Holly Carpenter

            HQ can give the users of Broadsheet a reason for binning them, that’s up to them.

            and that’s it
            as for the Spam, and the Heave Ho, and all the other sh1t you fling with these posts
            Walk your own talk “Anne”
            “Anne” was invited to Dep for me while I was off saving hay n’stuff
            (at my request btw)
            but decide for yerselves how ye think that went

            Johnny Preposterous would love to have “Anne” on the BS Telly webcast
            I’m sure of it
            So stop being a poseur and an empty shirt
            Walk the talk

            Because its not me that’s getting a dose of ire
            I feed off gimps like “Anne”
            I see it as an job-well-done when “Anne” and the likes get mangled into their own over reactions and their need to have sum’ting to say
            and when ye all overdose on Copy n’ Paste – I’m giddy
            and when subjects’ of Frill-Bits and or their connections put on camo-gear and open fire

            and as for Louis LaFondue calling Frilly an illiterate Savage Pig

            I think I’ve just come………….

          3. Anne

            Okie doke..

            So ye parted ways and you’re just bitter in general is it? Criticizing Clinton does not make one a mysoginist.

          4. bagofdreams

            Frilly, you are my Queen.
            Not my NEW queen… My Queen forever and always.

            You buck the free grudgers with style.
            And I love your style.

      1. Enter Sandman

        Seeing as anyone who is a whistleblower isn’t a whistleblower if they don’t agree with you 100% Anne anything is possible I suppose.

          1. Enter Sandman

            Hah repeat the same thing ad infinitum – that your strategy for not getting banned?

            Everyone can see that you haven’t a clue

  6. rotide

    The moderation is strong today. Let me rephrase.

    If you tell anyone they can’t do something, they will want to do it. It’s human nature.

    Draw your own conclusions from that (and what my comment that was deleted might have said)

    1. Frilly Keane

      its too late for some of us

      I’m in me nightie at that hour

      if I’m t’be on the telly at that hour of the night
      tis not with ye

      Get David Ginola on
      and it might be a different story

  7. Badat-da-dahhhh...

    I’m in the IFI, and slightly drunk.
    I just saw ‘Taxi Driver’.

    …You talking to me?
    …Are you talking to me?

    I’ll be your David…
    Who is Goliath?

  8. Shayna

    Can’t wait and won’t wait for, “On The Telly” (that was a reference to Chris Evans when he was on GLR, also “Too Much Gravy”). I think it’s a great idea and hope for its success, women on the panel, or not. (I’m a woman, by the way).

  9. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    Lookit… at the end of the day the gender issue is not the issue.
    The first thing that needs sorting is the timing.
    The next first thing is the topics. It’s a bit way too serious by far for me and maybe one or two others.
    First after that you have to stop apologising.

    – If you do all that first, the ‘gender-issue’ will just fade away.
    Trust me.

  10. Sheik Yahbouti

    Bodger must not have noticed the large number of misogynysts who post here. Heaven help any woman who went on the programme.

  11. sǝɯǝɯʇɐpɐq

    I wish there was no fighting going on here.
    That’s what holds up things like this, petty squabbling.

    I bet if you met each other you’d get along grand and have great craic together.
    Let’s call a ceasefire for a bit.

    Everybody stop being nasty for a week.
    No fighting.
    No name-calling.

    It won’t be easy, but it would be good.

  12. Janet, I ate my avatar

    weighs fun bags carefully, decides isn’t up to date enough with current Irish affairs

  13. bagofdreams

    The Wimmins are weighing their boobs.
    They never get the same result twice.
    There’s something wrong with the scales.
    This can’t be happening….

    Meanwhile, Broadsheet on TV happens.
    Nobody notices…
    Everybody was weighing their toys…
