New community: thegents
chap
nmg

As around half of my friends list are aware, LJ has the women-only theladiesloos community, based on the old Mono group of the same name. In an attempt to correct what could be perceived as a regrettable gender imbalance, and to provide a virtual space which allows men to ignore each other in an atmosphere of mild embarrassment, I'd like to announce the creation of a new community: thegents.

That is all.

(and now I need to go and prepare for a viva)

You might also want to check out: thecompanyofmen.

Intriguing. I keep meaning to have a look at thecompanyofmen. ghoti has just set up loos_company too. It's all the rage.

You see, I think that they've got it wrong. You don't go to the gents' to have a conversation, it's strictly excrete and go.

(hence the requirement for a non-conversational community)

It's definitely more faithful. I notice that etiquette has so far been observed scrupulously.

Indeed.

Moreover, if someone should happen to be so uncouth as to talk in thegents, the community will quickly react by adopting a strict silence and pretending that they didn't see the post.

I left theladiesloos a while ago and I don't see the point of either thecompany of men or loos_company either.

If it is "the gents" doesn't that mean you have to *not* talk to each other?

;-)

That was the general idea, as explained in the userinfo for the community.

Amusingly I got attacked for suggesting that the etiquette in a ladies loo is quite different from that in the gents. According to other chap on trollthread, I don't know what I am talking about and he regularly chats over the urinals. I'm glad you have cleared that up.

I suspect that he's actually a perfidious agent of the monstrous regiment of women, sent to unnerve men in their last remaining sanctum.
