If it's a group of friends: Hey, you useless f***ing idiots!

If it's a group of coworkers: Hey, you useless f***ing idiots!

If it's a group of strangers: Hey, you useless f***ing idiots!

You not mates with any lasses like?

They'd have to leave the kitchen first.

Mate is a weird word since you also have soulmate which at least until more recently was mainly used for a man and woman with a special bond.
It's also weird to not have a feminin and masculine version of the word friend to clarify if its a male friend of female friend like so many other languages has. Had a few weird encounters when studying in the US together with two female friends, especially at bars etc when I accidentally referred to them as my girlfriends, not thinking what that sounded like to the guys they were talking to :lol:

However, I'll raise men calling women "mate" with men calling women "dude". Seen a few youtubers f.ex call their wife and girlfriend "dude" which really cringed me out.

My lass is American and refers to me as 'dude' all the time. Infuriating. Doesn't like it when I refer to other random women as 'wifey/wife' though. For example, 'that old wife next door' or 'thats what the wifey told me on the phone', which I can imagine is equally infuriating to someone not from the NE.

It's pretty infuriating to someone who is from the NE, TBF.

I use guys to address a mixed group of people like. Mate being male was probably from a time when men didn't have any female friends, I don't think the dictionary definition matters at all.

More likely from a time when boys didn't have female friends. You know, when they are boys.

A French company has been found liable for the death of an employee who had a cardiac arrest while having sex with a stranger on a business trip.

A Paris court ruled that his death was an industrial accident and that the family was entitled to compensation.

The firm had argued the man was not carrying out professional duties when he joined a guest in her hotel room.

But under French law an employer is responsible for any accident occurring during a business trip, judges said.

Not the company's fault if he's not fit to f***.

And yet the show had women firefighters and ‘ethnics’...

My two loved it, both boys, I doubt they’d wanna be firefighters when they grow up though! More chance they’d want to be an X Factor singer!

I’m sick of the whole gender bollocks personally, I’m a man, my wife is a women, my kids are boys. A sex op, hormone pils, his and hers inclusive toilets, a new wardrobe and any sexual orientation preferences won’t change that and I don’t see why I or anyone must accept otherwise just to appease someone’s own sensitivities over their own gender and sexual orientation acceptance.

It’s not mainstream society who has a big problem or a big issue with someones’ gender or sexual orientation preferences the most, the majority couldn’t care less. Gay and straight, men and women, most right thinking people are comfortable with their own and everyone else’s specific gender and sexuality, at least enough to accept the real differences between the sexes and the reality that we can’t change who we are as a sex and nor should we.

I’m sick of the whole weird f***ing pizza bollocks personally, I’m a pizza lover, my wife is a pizza lover, my kid's a pizza lover. Putting random foodstuffs on anything remotely bread-like won’t change that and I don’t see why I or anyone must accept otherwise just to appease someone’s desire to be a wacky b****** that puts cheese whizz and ketchup on white bread and calls it pizza.

Gay and straight, men and women, most right thinking people are comfortable with their own pizza and everyone else’s specific pizza preferences, at least enough to accept the real differences between pizza and tossing a bunch of s*** on a plate and the reality that we can’t change the essence of pizza and nor should we.
