    Apologies. I should have included something a bit more general.

    That seems rather bloody-minded!

    On an unrelated note, I'd love to figure out how I stop my shirt getting untucked, short of duct tape/super glue.

    I just don't tuck mine in.

    Shirt with rolled up sleeves [I don't like them long... but I don't like short sleeves], jeans and trainers.

    Or, like today, t-shirt, jeans and trainers.

    Gentletechs can like pink too.
    How is it sexist to say I'm a girl?

    It's sexist because you're saying pink is only for girls.

    Ah no, I was saying I am of the pink variety of IT worker, as opposed to the blue variety (who don't always read the thread properly). I never said I wear pink!

    Aye. Pink is for girls, blue is for boys.

    That's sexist.

    For some reason it bugs me, unless a T-shirt where the reverse is true.

    Yep, I can't cope with long sleeves. Archetypal IT geek short sleeved shirts for me.

    (Although I'm not sure how IT guys (and gals?) got the reputation for short sleeved shirts)

    So .... if someone is having a baby ... and they get asked "Is it blue or pink?" - is that sexist :-)
