IN an act of heroic feminist allyship, a considerate man has kept his views to himself throughout a conversation about star signs.
Jordan Gardner was sat in a café with friends Lucy Parry and Sophie Rodriguez when they began to talk about Sophie’s horoscope as if it was worthy of serious discussion.
Gardner said: “For 20 long minutes I sat there with clenched fists and a vein bulging in my temple, and only interjected with polite nods and murmurs of agreement while Lucy told Sophie not to look for a new job because Mercury is in retrograde.
“I respect women completely and passionately believe in equality of the sexes, but, honestly, sometimes they come out with what can only be described as absolute female nonsense.”
Lucy Parry said: “We were testing Jordan and we’re impressed with how he coped. It was an act of feminist heroism not far removed from Emily Davison throwing herself beneath the King’s horse.
“However, he did stumble at the next hurdle when I got out a Rider-Waite deck and asked if he would like a tarot reading and he started visibly shaking, so there’s still progress to be made.”
