Would this irrtate you?

I don't want to go into to much detail, it's irrelevant. I played a quiz today and said he "the winner" must be reading the questions extremely fast and typing them in quick as well.
 
I didn't say the word winner though. I said "he". I wasn't implying he must be a man I know women play that quiz as well, I just used the word "he". When I said "he" I was corrected with "or she". I was corrected by another man.
 
Would you feel the need to correct this if you heard it? I just find little things like that tiresome.

    Depends why he corrected you in this instance, ie is he a feminist or a cuck ? My response to him regardless though would have been “fuk up” said with a descending intonation and in a very deep manly voice, I find this to be helpful in situations like the one you describe above.

    He's either of those. He wasn't trying to be annoying, it's just the way he is. He is someone who has to have most things exactly right. For example if anyone says linesman in football, he would correct with assistant referee.
     
    Everything would have to be the exact official wording or he would correct it by saying what should have been said immediately after. So if you said the linesman got it wrong, he would quickly say assistant referee yeah, straight away after. That's not to bad I suppose, I stopped saying linesman a while back, but "or she" is something which should be let go
     
    If something is pronounced slightly wrong or sometimes if there is two or more ways of saying something he would correct it to the right way or his preferred version  
     
    Would struggle to comprehend he could get something wrong. I caught him say Salford said like sal ford not sol ford a while back but in his head he didn't say that.

    The only reason he corrected me was because it could have been a woman which won the quiz and I said "he". In his head I should have said he or she or the winner. It's because it wasn't exactly right.
     
    You couldn't say postman for example. He would say, could be a postwoman. Personally I just postie. But if it's said it would be corrected.

    It wouldn't irritate me because becoming irritated is in my control. I can't control his behaviours, beliefs or words, so becoming frustrated by what he said would be pointless and draining. I would absolutely mark the guy down as a c.unit though.

    Trunks, that is a quite remarkable thing to say. How can that be so? Perhaps you can share some wisdom. Thanks.

    It's not really that remarkable. For the most part we are completely unable to control what other people do or say. Yet we allow ourselves to become upset by these things that are largely outside of our control. When you think about it rationally that's pretty silly. What good does it do to get upset or irritated by things that you yourself are unable to control or change? It serves no purpose other than to unnecessarily disturb your mind.

    Well of course, but what if it is your child being unreasonable because they are simply a child or tired, or your partner who is irritating you because you may be a typical male with a logical outlook as opposed to a more typical opposite outlook. I mean of course it is a case of letting it go over your head for want of a better phrase, but still, is it possible to control what annoys you?
     
    I definitely suffer with Misophonia, well my own interpretation anyway as its usually used to describe eating noises, its probably an aspergers symptom for me, and also with what I would describe as an un yet classified dislike of anything pc, it makes me more than irritated, which is what really prompted my interest in relation to original question, I would consider the answer to Muscle's original question to be that the guy is pedantically pc. I would probably tell him to pi88 off.

    I honestly think it is possible to control what annoys you. It just takes practice, lots of practice. Everytime something or someone irritates you, it's a gift (kind of). It's training, just like you'd train in the gym. Only it's often unexpected which makes it better. It's an opportunity to test your resolve and not to give in to those negative, irritable impulses. It may sound like some new age crap but the reality is that when you feel yourself losing it and becoming angry or irritable, you still have a choice, people think they don't because their emotions have taken over. Yet it is possible to apply logic and reason to these situations. You can choose to submit to those base emotions and act out, or you can choose to breath deeply and reflect on the fact that logic and reason is telling you that losing your **** is likely to do no good.

    I'm crap at explaining this philosophy but it's called Stoicism. This video does a better job of it than I ever could. https://youtu.be/R9OCA6UFE-0

    Apparently the correct PC term is not 'he' or 'she'. It's 'they'.

    No, pretty unlikely to correct someone for saying that unless I was intentionally being a d1ck to that person, for whatever reason. Like you, i find things like that tiresome & the people who do it pretty rude also, rather than them being PC for the sake of it.

    Wouldn't bother me, if I knew him well I'd do it on purpose to pull his leg and enjoy his reaction. I don't try to get into people's minds anymore but if he's that anal he quite possibly has a very stressful life.

    I'm with Trunks as I've got older and especially loosing everything after a divorce I've changed quite a lot. I occasionally have my moments (less and less) but don't let another's actions affect me. I've been called very very laid back by many people but I'm not really. If I can't do anything about it I don't worry I just let them get on with it. My children don't wind me up at all regardless. My partner is very very fiery and although she's not a classic "female" as in knowing the right emotional buttons to press (she's a northerner and straight as) she's very reactive bordering on aggressive bless her lol. I just let her vent/blow her top and burn herself out and then when she's ready sort things out. I'm training her at the moment haha.

    Done the doors on and off for many years and although I've got a calm temperament generally I love dealing with confrontation/aggressive people in my own way. Other than drugged up people its never failed.

    Thanks for the interesting replies. For me it's the intent. If someone is trying to be irritating and fails it would still be annoying because the intention was there. But if the intent isn't to cause harm, but did so anyway its better. Still irritating though.

    Can you imagine all these years having to listen to people say fireman, chairman, handyman etc? All jobs that you as a woman could do. Yet by being forced to listen to this discriminatory, subliminal hate speech you are being given the message that you aren't good enough to do them.

    Here's how you too can become a male feminist. https://life.spectator.co...oming-a-male-feminist/

    If he is a mate, and he did it too me all the time. He would not be my mate for long, initially it would not irritate me but over time it would ware me down

    When I have a conversation with a guy at work he always tries to take the opposite view to piss me off, so I now say hello, say I'm going for lunch and goodbye and that's it. Don't get into any conversation with him now, talk to the other guys if they on shift (only work on 2/3 man team) I think he so dumb he not even noticed
