    Fake Poster....

    If i had known people were hiding from menstruation huts in the sisterhood i would never have tried to go in. Seems odd to put a safe space in one of the busiest areas of the festival with limited access at night. Maybe needs a planning rethink. Im not from the UK, I'm Irish. We've a long history of being opressed by the English. Can you let me know where I fit in on your victimhood top trumps and I can adjust my guilt levels appropriately?

    So do the historical actions of every group dictate how seriously we should take any discrimination against that group? Does this apply to nationality, colour, sex and all of the other metrics we have no say in choosing at birth? It seems you are then assigning different rights to groups based on their sex, race, nationality etc. And surely that is precisely the type of discrimination we should be trying to tackle in the first place?

    Derogatory suggestions about genitalia. Amazing.

    Yes although making assumptions based on someone's appearance often leads to correct outcomes. The problem is when it doesn't. Anyway just to point out that I'm not offended or angry about not being allowed in. I had no real desire to go in, just a curiosity as to what their response would be to my attempting to go in. I'm also not keen to discuss it any further as I have work to do.

    No, she laughed because she clearly didn't believe that I identified as female. There's a very important difference.

    That's definitely for the best!

    They just said "Sorry, girls only". I said I identified as female and she just laughed at me and snarled "Do you indeed?" before walking away. I obviously didn't fit her gender construct stereotype. It is a bit of a legal minefield. There was a Swedish festival last year found guilty of a similar setup. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/dec/19/statement-swedish-women-only-music-festival-guilty-gender-discrimination No action was taken despite the guilty verdict as they said they did not actually implement the man free policy on entry which wasn't the case with the sisterhood.

    My comment wasn't specifically aimed at you Hugh but suggesting that anyone here is suggesting that men are hard done by or is trying to have that conversation is wilfully inaccurate.

    There's a very clear distinction between wanting to have "a conversation about how hard done by men are" and calling someone out on saying it is impossible to be sexist against a man. I absolutely do not want to have either of those conversations ever again, certainly not in these pastures but I think that distinction is important to recognise. Unreasonably painting people as MRAs for calling out bad reasoning helps nobody and just serves to derail open conversation.

    Looks worse than the original poster in all honesty.
