Excerpts (to see the complete list, please visit their site):
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that relations between men and women aren’t always harmonious.
While we’re moving away from the old “men are from Venus, girls are from Mars” trope, gender still divides us more than just biologically.
Inevitably, some men will do some things that will irritate some women, and vice versa.
Disclaimer: before you come at us with your #NotAllMen hashtags and your ‘meninist’ Twitter bios, note that we said some men.
(Although, having said that, we’ll go out on a limb and say that YesAllMen have left the toilet seat up at least once. You know it, and we know it.)
One Reddit user, rajonahmed-seo, posed this provocative question on a thread: “Women of Reddit: What would you like all men to stop doing, immediately, as of right now?”
Here are some of the answers that most make you want to jump up and shout “YES! Stop doing that, immediately, as of right now!”
-Telling me I look better without makeup, saying plastic surgery is gross, making fun of women for putting so much effort into their appearance etc. and then gushing over a picture of a very obviously made up & ‘enhanced’ model.
-Asking me if I’m on my period every time I get angry/irritated.
-Yelling random shit at me in public. If you wouldn’t say it to your mother don’t yell it at a random woman on the street. For example: saying ‘I’m digging the hair it’s awesome’ is chill; saying ‘nice t*ts’ is not.
-Requiring/demanding a reason for polite disinterest in you. You’re not going to talk me into being attracted and interested in you.
-Along the same lines, thinking being nice and polite to a woman means she owes you sex or conversation or attention.
-Stop with the f***ing d*ck pics. I don’t even want them from my own boyfriend, why would I want them from some random ass dude on FB who I’ve never heard of before?
