I buy Festool, my wife prefers to shop for clothing and purses.  She likes things I build for the house, I don't mind her dressing up.  My wife is good at cooking, I'm responsible for plunger activities.  My wife does the laundry, I shovel the driveway and take care of the yard.

Now tell me, am I a man or a woman?  If you automatically assumed, your sexist.

People rarely get offended by what they've said or written, mostly by what they've heard or said.  I think people gotta relax and enjoy the intended content.

you're!!!

Grammar is a real crime, sexism isn't, neither is causing offence if you ask me, after all if you aren't offending someone you can't be saying (thinking) anything but meaningless PC tripe :) I like being offended or annoyed it usually leads to something interesting whether that's something new or just a review...

Anyway there's no assumption needed wife = female ... no debate.

LOL...grammor ain't no nothin'.

Auto-complete on a cell phone is the goodness.  Technology only has us typing the first few letters of a word anymore.  You're, your...whatever.  Our brains can handle much more preprocessing than that moment required...well some of you'res can.

Probably the most sexist thing on FOG is this thread.

Lets not start debating "wife" , etc.

Erm, the way that is written, Scorpion could be a lady as well as her wife.
