    aha but you had a pushchair.. and we all know that having a pushchair in Brixton means you are automatically a "yummy mummy" and therefore a GENTRIFIER!!! :mad:

    The study needs to consider how nicely the subjects were asked, I think.

    Part if me wants to ask about your methodology.... But I may be better off not knowing.

    Don't know about that but I have resorted to removing my t-shirt in an hysterical fit of fury when asked for the millionth time why am I in the wrong toilets. Shock all round.

    Greebo 'scuse me, Mrs May, can I have my country back? R.I.P.

    FWIW a very stupid shop assistant assumed that there was a man in the women's changing rooms when there was just me. Granted, my hair was quite short at the time, I do have quite a square jawline, was more or less flat chested at the time, and to be fair I was trying on one plain white blouse and a few pairs of jeans (and taking my time as I needed to check that I'd be able to cycle in them).

    Even so FFS! Apart from anything else, how many men are 5 foot and more or less pear shape? :mad:

    Edited to add: sorry buscador I can't begin to imagine what it's like to get that type of treatment repeatedly instead of just once in a while. :(

    That pub that I don't want to mention by name was fucking magnificent tonight. It really feels like the Brixton that I thought was lost forever.

    This was 20 years ago yesterday. What a day. A 14 year old me makes a brief appearance in one of the crowd shots. Nearly a quarter of a century on and again we're having to fight the rise of racism.

    It still has that 'old school/hidden secret' feel about it, like Bradys back in the day.

    They had a fantastic reggae band there last night and the female singer was superb. The place was packed too - on a Wednesday!

    Secret enough to make it more or less a locals only event - an increasingly rare phenomenon around these parts.
    And very mixed too, something else that's becoming increasingly rare as Brixton homogenises. :)

    Not really very secret at all seeing as it's been mentioned and named on here most Wednesday nights/Thursday mornings for the last few months.

    Good job that I've never claimed that it is a total "secret" then.

    I've known about it for years, but decided I should let the readers of Brixton Buzz know about it too!
