The Brits are now gender neutral. No longer best male and female artists, it’s just best artist.

I am gender fluid, race fluid, and even height fluid, depending on when it is advantegous for me. If we can all identify ourselves however we want then let's play their game as you cannot reason with ideologues.

Is it time to end the obvious discrimination shown by the ‘Women’s Institute’

Ah, but that's different.

So can I start a Men's Institute then?

No, because its discriminatory. :confused:

Yes you can, under the 2010 Equality act if it is a charity is acting in pursuance of a charitable instrument and if the provision of benefits is a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim.

An example is UK Men's Sheds Association - AKA Men is Sheds, a charity with legitimate aims

    I actually think it makes sense for the Brits. Men and women doing the same thing can compete for the same award. That happens in lots of other fields.

    Yes, there is a lot of crazy stuff going on, but this particular example is OK.

    Anything that makes for a shorter award ceremony gets my vote.

    Please stop being sensible. This is clearly not the thread for that kind of behaviour.
