Is not being invited to these on the basis of being the wrong gender a good start for a huge employment discrimination claim?

Yes, if

(a) you're the only man in an all women team (and vv) or
(b) all the men are excluded (or all the women)

and

(c) it is work-related (rather than just a group of people who happen to work together are also friends outside work)

otherwise, what dusty said

But they may be able to establish that the reason you're not invited is not because of your gender but because they find you to be an annoying buzzkill?

Probably PP but it would be a real bonus for me if I could find a new job and then get £125,000 for a discrimination claim too.

the females at a former workplace organised a "girls night" and got the diversity panel to allocate them a £40 a head budget. They went for cocktails up one of those skyscrapers.

The males asked for budget for a similar event and were told that there was no budget. We self-funded and went Taayabs.

heh!

yeah actually, if sexuality is a spectrum, I really think LGBT culture is actually very discriminatory

if you're married to an opposite sex person but fancy same sex people in your head, are you allowed to go?

if you have affairs with same sex people are you allowed to go?

what if you never have sex with anyone?

WHY ARE WE EVEN STILL TALKING ABOUT SEXUALITY IN 2016!

17!

It's worse than that, it's my protestant half...

Tbf I've always found LGBT groups to be extremely keen to invite absolutely everyone to their events.

so that you can sit as an audience in thrall to their stuff about discrimination

even tho, if there is a gayer profession than law, I have never encountered it

with the POSSIBLE exception of musicals

and then you have to go away with their LGBT Ally keyrings

even though it's a preference of shagging and I just do not ally myself with that (plus, gayness is a thing, being a woman when you are actually a man is not a thing - why do gay people do this?!?!)

by "this" I mean align themselves with a thing that undermines their genuine thing
