The people that complain about this should count their blessings if this is all they have to worry about .. some how I can’t imagine something like this would trouble someone trying to get by in the Ukraine these days .
Nor can I imagine it being an issue for their forbearers during the London Blitz …

Clearly Argos (that fading company) is led by weasels with neither sense nor backbone because of a "complaint" from a handful of "activists". Just as the complainer can boycott Argos so can the vast number of non-complainers who have far more financial
clout than the crybaby with no life. What nonsense all this is.

If we all had Kryptonite, we would all be super men, so there would be no sexism.

This is the problem with things like the victim culture… IT HAS NO END.

As soon as something is ‘found out’ to be inappropriate and banned, they move on to the next, and the next, and the next, ad infinitum.

If left unchecked IT HAS NO END.

Which is why the sensible masses NEED to push back.

To be honest I don't think there will ever be a push back
After seeing the RAF have temporarily stopped recruiting white males I can see no end to it
Personally I think we should recruit the best person for the job whatever colour or sex they are
Especially when we are talking about the defence of our country !!!! So if you are a young white bloke and you want to get in the RAF at the moment my advice would be to put a dress on and say your a woman

Of course!

Any / all recruitment should be based on MERIT.

But this is exactly my point. For years, minority groups (quite rightly) fought to prevent discrimination against them.

But when that battle was won, the fight didn’t stop.

They then pushed for ‘positive’ discrimination to ‘redress the balance’ (how this was ever allowed is staggering, if discrimination is illegal, then it is illegal in all forms).

When people argued that this was wrong, and that selection should be on merit, they attack merit.

The radical left (not true lefties, just the radicals) are now arguing that a meritocracy itself is discriminatory because the ‘system’ itself creates some with higher merit than others so that system itself is discriminatory.

It’s exactly my previous point, there is no end to radicals always finding ‘the next cause’ to defend.

But… I think (and / or hope) you’re wrong Baz and that there will be a pushback. The trouble is, the pushback might be a successful push from the radical right…

I hope I'm wrong
But I can't see any end to it
