    Shelias Wheels.

    So if I ring up Shelias Wheels, I get refused service for being a man, or what? Surely the legal position of wimmins only car insurance has to be a bit shakey?

    In this day and age, where everything is about equality 'n that.

    What next, black only chip shops? Ginger only swimming baths?* Gay only nights at Tesco Express?

    * - Actually a good idea, noone wants to see that.

    I'm thinking of forming a group for the protection of straight, white males from discrimination, seeing as we are the only group left its still ok to discriminate against \ make jokes about.

    and there's Diamond Car Insurance that's only for women..
    this shouldn't really be allowed though, with equality and all that, as you mentioned..
    Churchill ftw (because they don't discriminate )

    Re: Shelias Wheels.

    yeh i don't get how you can make jokes about the irish/americans/buddhists/christians/smurfs/elves/umpalumpas etc etc, but asoon as you mention another religion or skin colour or things, it becomes a complete no, no. It's bloomin annoying.
    and surely in this world of equal oppertunitys, you can't have an insurance company that does just female car insurance, if it was the other way around there would be uproar!

    Re: Shelias Wheels.

    i dont think legally they can refuse to insure you for just being a man.

    i know its an old arguement but what if there was car insurance just for men and white appriciation week, all hell would break loose. Im fairly sure there were complaints over yorkie bars and the slogan 'its not not for girls'

    as a white working class male i feel discriminated against!!

    Hmm.

    Someone who has a car do what Ade said, and see if they can.

    If they can refuse, its sexist, racist, gayist, and other things.

    What next, lesbian only aquariums? Jehovah's Witness only dry cleaners?

    HIV POSITIVE ONLY INTERNET CAFES?

    I is outraged, I is.

    just imagine how much you'd get bombarded if you accidentally stumbled in there.

    Re: Shelias Wheels.

    You guys do not understand how insurance works. This thread is ridiculous (sorry Stew). I would try to explain, but its a waste of time going by what happened in every other "politically incorrect" thread...

    No probs. Perhaps just clear something up, can they refuse to insure you because you are a man?

    Re: Shelias Wheels.

    i think the world has gone mad/too far. one quote, bah bah black sheep and that was one song i remember and now its illegal too say that as its racist, i dont have a problem with sex/race/religion etc etc as long as its equal, a white person can be shouted abuse etc but when its too a black person its a complete no, get fined if you dont hire the women or black person even if they are just the same qualification as a different person. I think everything should be equal and thats the end of it.
