        I mean, annoying bitter manbabies like yourself makes me pretty happy. Thanks for your hysterical response. :)

          Everyone who comments on your logorrhoea is bitter, rightwing and hysterical. Someone asked this before – are you really like this in real life?

            Aw, say it ain’t so, Ahjayzis. If I blamed traveller culture for a fire that wiped out several traveller families like you did, can we be friends again?

      I thought this event was a parody when I saw it last night as I didn’t recognise any of the names that were speaking, until I saw his. Urgh.

        Urgh? So easily offended! Don’t go. There’s plenty of conferences/courses/hashtags for women who dislike men!

        The responses were all bland run of the mill.

        you’re right of course. getting beaten and slandered and stabbed and legally victimized should be a thing men just accept, if they’re proper men, and complaining about it is a sign of sensitivity.

          “getting beaten and slandered and stabbed and legally victimized”

          By other men, and not because they’re men. It’s just middle class lads looking to be victims because it makes them feel special.

      Here Frilly genuine question. When you write ‘sur’ you mean ‘sir’ right? Or do you mean ‘sure’ and would that not be spelled ‘shur’?

    This dork, who went on TV to talk about how proud he is of his accent, whines about “identity politics” when women talk about *their* issues.

      It’s different listening to it then reading it, Frillzers. I’m sure you’re a delight to listen to. Melodious, mellifluous etc etc.

    Eamonn Mac Thomais’ books are great for more of this Dublinese, if a little corny. “Yer dinner’s poured out!”

        I didn’t say there was anything wrong with it.
        I may even do it myself but it’s been so long I can’t remember.
