Gay Taxi Drivers...

Don`t get many do you and heres why...
. 'Gay men navigate in a similar fashion to women, according to research that offers fresh evidence for a heavy biological influence over sexual orientation. Homosexual men and heterosexual women share a poor sense of direction compared with heterosexual men, and are more likely to rely on landmarks, scientists have found' - The Times.
If I ever do meet a gay taxi driver I expect to hear something like this
" Bloody foreigners come over here and ..they`re all bloody gorgeous ..makes me sick...( moan moan)... oh dear, any idea where we are ? " There were 11 out gays at the last Olympics out of about 15,000 competitors by the way.(Prospect)

Sorry Gays , just teasing

Sorry but that's total crap - I can navigate fine and was even better before I sustained a head injury. Every gender profile I've ever read does not describe me; women are like this, men are like that - all total crap. One of the few gender specific assesments I agree with is that men tend to aggresion and blame others whereas women tend to blame themselves, but that is such a general thing I wouldn't build a thesis on it!

Then again maybe I am just from a different planet enjoying fortean times :-)

I can navigate fine

You say. All women think they can ansd that is a cosmic truth

Philipa said...

Really?! That's why I was a DofE leader leading children and adults around the Black Mountains, amongst other places, is it?? And why my ex, with a Phd, but not in navigation, was convinced he always knew the right way, even though I would venture the correct route from time to time - we would always get lost when he was in charge! You prove my point N - men tend to egotism and aggression; they have to be the boss and can't stand it when a woman knows more than they do. Now that IS a fact.

Newmania said...

isn`t

Philipa said...

See?! Tis usually a woman wot gives in... or no washing up would be done, meals made, babies washed/fed/clothed etc. etc. coffee brewed from real arabica beans, yummy :-) It's not that men are always right, its that women can't be arsed to argue any longer, exspecially with a man who has a cute bottom! Life's just too short.

Very amusing, Newms, but utter codswallop. I have a close friend who is both gay and superb at navigating, while I am utterly hopeless.

I navigate graphically. That is, when I'm figuring out which way to go I need to have a map of some sort in my mind. If I'm in a new area I need time to build up that map. But drop my friend in the middle of London and he somehow knows (instinctively) precisely where every damn street comes from and goes too.

That's why I just let him navigate and keep my trap shut.

Gay taxi drivers are good at reversing though, all that backing out they do.

Mr N. you do like sticking your head above the parapet. However as I have already taken one pot shot at you today I will just say that men also think women can't park (now who do you think out of the two members of my household has the dodgy bumpers?).

Mrs S.

P.S. Charlie dog doesn't drive but has been known to lock men out of cars when they've left their keys in the ignition, thus occasioning the womankind to come to the rescue with the spares!

Newmania said...

Mrs. S women can Park and it makes an excellent game trying to guess whuich side of the road they are trying to park on...:)

EK EK...tsk tsk. ...hope you are rolling along nicely

Ed said...

P, N is only mucking about. He is a terrible driver.

The Ludingtonian said...

Newms -

LOL. Yes, very funny. :-)

Curiously enough, I knew Justin when I lived in Tottenham a gazillion years ago. He was just a lad then; I doubt he was even shaving regularly.

(sigh) That's about my biggest claim to fame, unfortunately...

Newmania said...

Small world Lud ...intruiging

Philipa said...

Ed, I know, me too, N actually has a huuuuge bottom.

Newmania said...

Do I ? ..well maybe so but its two huge globes of steel !
