I disagree. The best way to deal with anything is with open discussion.

But this isn't an open discussion.  It's a joke that has been completely dissected by the opposite sex.  I believe jokes should remain as jokes regardless of their subject.  "Open discussion" only elavates it to a level of seriousness that it had no intention of ever going.

And then in a workplace a guy looks at a girl's ass and she sues him for sexual harrassment. A girl looks at the guy's and noone bats an eyelid.

 

Double standards, oh the joys of that!

I hate double standards! It really winds me up, as a teacher i try to explain about this to kids if they have double standards. But then as you say goes all the way through to the adult workplace. Really winds me up!

Ok had my say......

Right. It was meant as a joke. But I was addressing what you said after: "There are certain subjects you never discuss with the opposite sex".

It is only a certain type of person who would go on these shows and I'm sure from the clip you can see what they're like! Never sure on these type of programmes either if they are real or not.
