First topic message reminder :

Saw a tweet from soneone who playedin Letchworth,Hertfordshire. He was told his black sports socks were not allowed as oy white ones were, but could pay £7.50 for long non sporys socks to play. He declined and didn't play. Its all pretty ridiculous, as are most golf dress codes, but has anyone fallen foul of a dress code?

Mac, You do realise that your obsession with my sex life is confirmation that yours is non-existent?

Beninho, We keep hearing from Muslims that Burka's are not necessary and not part of Islam, and even if it was, criticising an article of clothing isn't bashing the religion, however even if it was, no religion has any right to be exempt from ridicule anyway.
The world is obsessed with appearance, TV, Music, Films are all obsessed with appearance, so if people can have their say about that without anyone jumping on a bandwagon of fake offence, then it should be exactly the same if people can pass comment on the appearance of anyone, whether that's you, me or any member of a fairy tale club.

You have issues with religion, we know. You like to talk about religion, thats fine, bit weird but fine. I personally see no reason why you decided to bring islam into this actual thread, but you wanted to, as your a bit obsessed with religion, again tgats fine, bit weird but fine.

Maybe, you can start a seperate thread, called realists religious Tourette thread, so you can.post all about religion.

You dont though have the right to state that women are coerced when having absolutely no experience to base a statement like that on. There was a massive statement from British Muslim women after Cockwomble Johnson’s comments stating they were sick and tired of that viewpoint being made by people exactly like you, ie clueless on the subject. It’s the kind of comment that ingrains prejudice in people, not that your prejudice could be much more ingrained.

It was a JOKE Beninho, it was fairly topical and was an issue talked about earlier on another thread.

Maybe instead of me having to create a thread, you could just not reply if you see something which offends your delicate sensibility?

I said GENERALLY Diggers, meaning that NOT ALL women are coerced into wearing it. I'm sure some do wear it by choice, but many do not.

Of course I'm prejudiced against Islam, how could I not be? Why would I not be prejudiced against an institution which subjugates women, is openly homophobic and which makes it virtually impossible to leave? Why would I give such a harmful belief system even the slightest respect?

I'm actually fine if people want to wear that, the point is that no one should be immune from comments or criticism of it, which many religious (I'll add nuns, Jews, Sikhs) or anyone who wears odd things (FKW's, kilts, etc) in there too. There's nothing special about wearing such clothing which should mean that people can't criticise it or simply describe it.

Im honestly curious why you decided to make jokes about islam, when nothing about islam or religion was being discussed. You have religious Tourettes.

And your still doing it. On what basis do you know that not many wear it by choice? No basis, it’s just an incredibly uninformed statement made by a self confessed bigot, which means you can say what you like of course but few will listen or respect you. Which is as it should be.

I wasn't making a joke about Islam Benihno, I was making a joke about dress codes in golf clubs.

Diggers, there's enough on the media to show that it isn't always by choice. Saudi Arabia for example where it's mandatory. I could just as well ask you how you know that they wear it by choice. You have no basis for saying that some do not wear it by choice, after all, no one is going to say they are forced are they?

In a culture where a woman is valued at 50% of a man, do you really think that they all have the freedom of choice?

Hello, wake up, the whole point is I’m not saying they wear it by choice...because I do not know, because I’m not well informed to, it would be a useless statement based on nothing, just like yours.

Actually Diggers, in some places we do know they're forced to wear it. I already gave the example of where.

Your joke was clearly to nuanced for me. It was a joke about the right wing racist members and their reaction to a female Muslim burka wearer on the course.

Still think it was a sh#t joke, but glad you've explained it. What was the rumning away emoji thing about?

The women we should be talking about are British Muslim women. But even more in Saudi Arabia (which is a tiny percentage of the worlds muslim population) you don’t know how many wear it by choice. So why make a statement presented as fact, when you have no proof to back it up. It’s just a prejudiced assumption, it may even be correct, but when you make prejudiced statements based on no proof, or even caring it you’re correct, you’re just an idiot.

Ben, digs, why do you take offence at super’s joke when you also claim that it’s prejudice to say that these women are forced to wear it? By that account it should just be any other piece of clothing?

That’s not my point at all, Pedro. I haven’t commented on his joke, such as it is. It’s his statement of fact concerning something he has no factual evidence about. He constantly makes literal statements, then gets annoyed when people take them literally.

I'm not offended by the joke. Im a pretty liberal guy, and therefore have no issues with freedom of speech in most cases. My curiosity was why the need to menttion it? My initial take was he was using it as a joke against islam. He has clarified it to be a joke about racists at golf clubs who have issues with islam.

If nobody minds Ill go back to the thread.Many moons ago myself and a lady friend(14 hcap)pitched up at Kirby Muxloe GC Leiceseter -bit pretentious in those days not so now and my friend was wearing a pair of taylored denim trousers purchased from Debehams Oxford St.In the first tee and the secretary major type Mr Rabbit believe it or not came sprinting across to advise that she couldn't play in those denim jeans so we were forced to take our money back and leave.

She should have slid out of her tight denim trousers and played in her g-string.

Dress code doesn't seem to apply to women. I see them wearing sleeveless vest tops, tops with no collar, tops never tucked in... and that's just on tour.

Speaking of women on tour, I’ve just noticed that the Solheim is at Gleneagles and coincides with Tassie week. Given that it’s only about an hour away, I might pop along to check out their dress codes.

Guys she was the friendly sort so g string may have been a possible .Happy days a long time ago.
Just found out yesterday her partner had passed away which reminded me of the story.
I genuinely believe that if a club wants to set some rules then its up to them.Womens institute ,boy scouts,golf,muslims,catholics some things do appear to be ridiculous but I have no wish to join the womens institute or the catholic church.
Big gay pride event coming up here in Leicester and our firm are encouraging folk to take part to show our diversity and equality.Im thinking about having a straight pride march.

A bit off subject but last week a full size table tennis table arrived in reception at work and sat there for a few days no one knew where /who it belonged to .
Then it turned out it was a delivery from Argos for one of our staff who is the gayest person on the planet full high heels/shaved/silver and sequins the most unlikely person to play table tennis.
It had been charged to his company credit card by Argos and naturally the boss wanted to know why.His conversation with Argos was gold plated comedy of the highest order not helped by various folk buying him table tennis ball the next day.

I always quite liked the Wimbledon predominatly white rule -but it limits the sponsors advertising impact.
Was it Nike who started the pink gear in various styles for all their golfers this year .Huge money on clothing I'm told(probably by internet) Ronaldos transfer fee was covered by shirt sales.

Not sure it is wierd to want to talk about religion but it is possibly unwelcome in the eyes of some readers on a golf board.  Quite frankly people should post whatever they want.

She stretched her credibility (as well as her catsuit) by saying the tight outfit was for medical reasons.

Played at Kirby Muxloe today very pleasant real good crowd all for youth club charity.They have a hell of an honours board in recent years.Charlie Ford and Jason Palmer both tour level.Laura Bailey ladies international and a young lady Jamie Leigh Voss who won everything possible at junior level including European and then hurt her wrist and dropped of the scene.
Good course great meal and no dress rules.Most of us didn't change for the meal and some folk wore shorts -shock .One of the prize winners was Bob Taylor look him up on google with the next line- holes in one -you will not believe the result
