New community: thegents

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.


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.
