This is a question Sexism

Freddie Woo tells us: Despite being a well rounded modern man I think women are best off getting married and having a few kids else they'll be absolutely miserable come middle age.

What views do you have that are probably sexist that you believe are true?

Illness...
In my experience women are sexist towards men when it comes to any form of illness. The slightest complaint of ill health is met with extreme disdain, whereas when a woman is unwell a man has to be sympathetic or there's trouble.

How did this disparity arise?

Women are shit at conceding that a man might feel remotely ill and require the smallest bit of sympathy.

On the road
Women are good drivers. The reason being is that they don't have a load of testosterone making them hot-headed, over confident and prone to showing off.

However, they can be so inconsiderate. At the end of my street is a T-junction. One that is busy enough from each direction to warrant a mini-roundabout. Consequently, turning right is a pain in hole (either down the side-road or out onto the main road). Other drivers will stop and let you out. I've been keeping track, and I've found that it's very rare that a women driver will stop - even if they're waiting to turn right down the side street. I need a break in both lanes in traffic, she's stopped one of them and so it isn't to much to ask to just let me out.

And they can be such ingrates. In the above situation, if I stop and let a women driver turn right, I very rarely get any acknowledgment.

Men: Take note, and you'll see what I mean

Women: Prove me wrong.

I don't like talking to women.
I'm not intimidated by them or anything - it's not like I'm scared to talk to them. I just find them very boring.

When I applied to the Royal Navy, I put down the submarine service because they don't let women in. It's bad enough with the wife at home - I don't want to have to spend 6 months at sea with women as well.

MUSIC
I have rather large and eclectic collection of music that I've plundered from the interwebs over the years (about 50 Gig) mainly consisting of rock, indie and electronica.
One startling thing I've noticed is that I only have the work of one female musician (Bjork) and only about 2 albums on which a female singer features prominently. Usually women, where they do exist in the music I own are made to content themselves with the position of bassist or drummer.

This can't be simply because I don't enjoy female singing. Lots of the music I listen to is electronic and so has no vocals (such as Aphex Twin or BoC). As far as I am aware there are no female producers of this kind of music. Of course there must be, but I've not heard of any.
WHY IS THIS!?!?
One hypothesis is that teenage girls just aren't as geeky as boys, meaning that they don't spend days and days sat alone with computers or with their friends in grotty studios producing music. Or maybe it's very difficult to market the work of a woman who isn't highly visible & attractive.
Hmmmm.

Sorry for length/ incoherence of argument.

Knots.

An open letter to... Well, quite a lot of women I've met in the past:
If you want me to do something, just ask nicely. Do not lead me on just long enough for me to do the thing, then laugh at me for allowing myself to be led on. These are two utterly different processes.

Every time this happens, I become approximately 27% more bitter.

Comedy
I was having this coversation with my dad the other day after watching shit Xmas 'funny' tv.

My opinion: Male comedians are funnier than female comedians. Granted, there are some funny lasses... but all I end up thinking is "Well, they're good... for a woman"."

Male comedians seem to be able to be funny about the world. Take Bill Hicks, Steven Wright and that lot. Brilliant and dry. Then the musicians: Tim Minchin, Bill Bailey. Then you have Dylan Moran. Ricky Gervais. Even that tv wanker Michal McIntyre. All face-achingly amusing!

I have noticed that female comedians make jokes about being a woman, or the life of a woman. Maybe putting men down for a laugh.

I know that women haven't always had it as easy as men, and perhaps still don't. It has only been in the past few generations that women have had the chance to receive similar education to men, and certainly 'male humour' is encouraged more. Things like wanking, bodily functions, toilet humour and stuff (think Russell Brand) are all 'male humour'. Perhaps women have been considered more a sidekick throughout comedy history; or perhaps men would have been given more opportunities. After all, a lot of 'women's stuff' would have been thought of as taboo until pretty recently, with audiences not wanting to know about that sort of thing.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. I'm not saying there are NO good female comedians, I'm sure there a lot. MORE FEMALE FUNNIES, I SAY. The hands-down WORST stand up comedian I know is a guy. And some of the most genuinely amusing people I know are women.

Toodle pip.

On the contrary...
I confess I used to be very wary of the fairer sex (fairer in what terms, i always did wonder) and so naturally took to the stereotypes to soothe my ills against them (and probably to mask my own personal feelings of inadequacy). After all, if being silly and good only for housestuff is in their nature, I can't really hold them against it, right?

Well, fortunately, I met this wonderful young lady (who decided I was pleasent too, despite my faults) who turned it all on it's head. Honestly, the girl is a walking advertisement for all the best parts of the XX brigade and more besides. Freed thus from the shackles of ignorance, I resolved to see how far the tables could turn.

For example, it had long been a belief of mine that the female voice and metal music aren't really the best mix (probably due to the more prominent examples being of a more operatic persuasion, which sometimes bores me). Of course, recently I managed to overturn this belief after listening to Hellions Ann Boleyn, who impressed me sufficiently with their cover of Exciter.

As for comediennes, well... I dunno. Women can be funny, and often are, but I've not found a current stand up who raised titters from me (mind you, i can say that about a lot of comedians too. All too often I find they really on the shock factor of what they say or are just simply annoying)

So yea, I consider men and women largely equally (by that I mean I'm a miserable misanthrope and quite happy to stay that way)

And now the obligatory joke

q. Why did the woman cross the road?

a. Never mind that, what was she doing out of the kitchen?!

And thus I finally post. I hope it wasn't too painful to read.

Poker
Women are shit at poker. Way too conservative and predictable in their play, and assuming it's real world poker (as opposed to the online nonsense), they tend to kill the (sophomoric and sexist) banter at a table.

Women in science, engineering, maths etc.
Now I'm not saying that no women are good at these, that would be blatantly rubbish as I know many women who excel at these things (hopefully me included since I'm female and trying to do a PhD in physics), but I honestly think that a vision of a world where the gender split is 50/50 is just a bra burning feminists fantasy. Why? I honestly think that these things do appeal less to the average woman than the average man, and the average man is probably better at them. I hope no-one was stupid enough to interpret that as "I think all men are better than all women at maths" as that really would be sexist. I'm all for making sure girls know enough about these subjects to decide whether they like them and making sure they're not being put off by stereotypes rather than their own opinion, but if a girl doesn't want to be a scientist FFS just let her do her own thing.

The main thing that makes me think the ratio of men to women at least in physics (being a physicist I know most about gender ratios in that than jobs I don't do) is never going to be more even than about 70:30 is law and medicine. Both very traditionally mens jobs, yet today, I believe far more girls want to study them at uni than boys. The days of girls being put off because something is a man's area of interest are more or less over.

I think the other way around may be a problem (I woulnd't be surprised if men are feeling put off girls' subjects because of the stereotype), but no-one gives a shit when men are in the minority.

Barbecues.
Now don't get me wrong, I can grill up a storm on my bbq when I'm cooking for myself. Never mind the standard steaks, sausages and burgers, I've been known to cook a whole joint of beef, a whole chicken, that kind of thing on my grill. When I'm hungry and home alone.

When I have friends round however, if there's a bloke around, he gets the bbq duties.
I'm sorry, but men are soooo much better at grilling than women regardless of how well us lasses can do it ourselves!

Adverts
particular those for things like cleaning products and lately cold remedies.

A spate of these have shown men as weak, complaining and incapable. I'm not saying that it is not the case, but the double standards shown there are quite annoying. If it were saying the same things about a woman there would be complaints I'm sure.

Equal rights (almost put Rites!) and treatment works both ways.

My personal philosophy is that men and women were created equal. Equally fucking stupid.

O.o
My flatmate has just given me, as a Christmas present, an 'Ex Lover Voodoo Doll'.

It is one of those squeezy dolls and is emblazoned with imagined chakras accompanied by phrases such as 'You will pay', 'You still love me' and 'Stop bitching behind my back'.

I find it:

a) Creepy
b) A strange choice of present, since I am close friends with every single one of my exes (as she knows)
c) Quite sad

I don't want it in my house in case people think I willingly procured such a product, and I don't want to give it to a charity shop because I don't want to spread pointless bile. Thus I am going to have to bin it when she's not looking.

EDIT: I have just noticed that it comes complete with pins. I am now even more creeped out.

An Inconsistent Triad
Consider the judgment; "men and women are equal, and therefore deserve equal rights" that is thrown about by feminists. Now consider the following:

1. Men and women are equal.

2. Two things are only equal if and only if they both share all of the properties of the others. (Leibniz PWNS)

3. Men have cocks, women have boobies.

The three statements plainly cannot all obtain:

If 1 and 2 are true, then 3 must be false.
If 2 and 3 are true, then 1 must be false.

2 is mathematically and A PRIORI true, 3 is demonstrably true, yet we can find no proof for 1.

Therefore, 1 is false. Men and Women are not equal.

Conclusion:

If equal rights are to be distributed and "deserved" on account of equality, then women do not deserve equal rights to men, nor vice versa.

Thankyou
