Girly means slightly effeminate for a guy, but not gay.  A sporty bloke (jock in US parlance) is not a girly.  It is a derogatory term for a guy.

Weed means weak, ineffectual, etc (the opposite of whatba real plant weed is).  If the weedy bloke was into computers, etc, he would be a nerd.

Combined, the two are derogatory to us smart, fit, intelligent, sporty, women-loving male specimens of the human race.  You don't get many girly weeds in the army.

You know all those charities.

I don't do gardening. Once I start digging, it ends up as a hole where I can shelter from enemy fire.  You never know when they may be coming. I do do grass cutting and clearing scrub, chainsawing unwanted woodery stuff.  But, as for flowers ... They are nice to look at, but I don't look after them that well.

Thank you for the explanation, Bill.
