Gelert wrote:Actually I would. Any banter is better than no banter, and banter is an endangered species, especially within the home and within the family. Banter is the glue that holds stuff together when there isn't enough duct tape to stop the world falling to bits. As for it being fascist banter, I'd suppose any old port in the storm, seeing as in those circumstances the good old starter for ten of "I fvcked your mum" is so easily countered with "Please, Dad, shut up."

In respect to non-vegan gf's, It's not for me i'm afraid, I'm sure there are some very understanding omnivore girls out there. Who would be respectful of my veganism but it's probably a case of a needle in a haystack. I haven't found that needle, veggie/vegan lasses for me, but then again an ex-veggie might pass first inspection but would probably end up causing tensions in the long run.
I disagree, I assumed you'd have a definate view on this issue. In fact quite a lot of folk dont like the idea of Welsh speaking, incredible though that seems, accounts for the relatively high proportion of private schools in Wales that dont teach the language and are full to bursting during a resecion in areas that have below average wage. Folk prefer to pay to stop their kids learning any Welsh whatsoever, and if you're in the services and get posted to Wales you can have your kids' private school fees paid for by the state rather than having the infringment of them learning another language. Mindboggling given that all the evidence points to major benefit from being bilingual in any languages.Gelert wrote:It's a bad analogy to use, not least for the inherent overstatement!

To add to this, what are peoples opinion of creating vegan children? Of course everyone would like vegan children, but there is always a chance they run off and become a scientologist.
