modern goddamn times

Apparently it is not polite to refer to the birth of a girl-child as a 'dud' or 'blind'. Must be an army thing.

Also, the act is not 'calving'

Like you I've also noted that an off-the-cuff reference to some female calving seems to stop conversations stone dead. A perfectly natural event for a mammal.

PM, I've never heard the term 'calving' being referred to women before, but that brought a smile to my face. Maybe I will try it one day and then run like hell.
