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?

This question is now closed.

No one is equal, regardless of age, sex, religion, colour or any other grouping factor. We're all different and have different life experiences which shape our attitudes, beliefs and convictions. This does not mean that in a modern society we all shouldn't be treated the same in regards to law and freedoms.

The sexes are different and we should cherish and appreciate those differences instead of getting uptight about them. That goes for colour and creed too. As long as we all have the same rights (which we don't fully, even now) and protection from the society in which we live, the rest is up to the individual.

That being said I still find myself hopelessly at the mercy of any pretty girl and being more polite, cheerful and helpful than I would be to most people...

This goes through my head a lot:
(in my mind)

Me: Hello there, can I stare at your tits?
Girl: No.
Me: Put them away then you dizzy tart.

People say that you shouldn't hit women...
...why not?!

To be honest...I don't generally hit ANYONE...

...but that's just silly old me.

Single parents.
Why is an unmarried mother the lowest of the low council/chav scum, whereas an unmarried father is almost godlike in their self-sacrifice and devotion to their children?

Not really answering the question I guess, but Ive never understood the difference.

This one will probably get me beaten by the ladies...
I honestly think that the females of the world should stop striving to be as "equal" as men. Now, before I get stoned to death, let me explain that one.

Men and women are not equal. Never have been, never will be. We're wired differently mentally and physically, we're both of the same species but completely different. In caveman times, men performed the hunting role in society, and women tended to the family/tribe/general society. I'm generalising here, but everyone knew their place in the tribe/general society, and didn't strive to do something else. We were all content with our place, whether it was looking after the kids with the other mothers, or being used as some creatures chewtoy with our mates before killing it and taking it home to eat.

Nowadays though, because rabid feminism has forced this idea that women are just as equal to men in everything, they deserve to be treated better than men. And because advances in technology mean that women can "compete" with men on a mostly equal basis in most things, with a few exceptions (Most manual labour jobs, due to physicality, and the military forces, again with the physical fitness which men have the edge in, and another point is that being female in war runs the risk of any captured female soldier being raped as part of torture), we've achieved "equality" but with the result that nobody is happy nowadays. With me still? Good.

We're still not equal though. In caveman terms, we're trying to perform each others jobs, and we're not succeeding at it. I hold the view that until we recognise that we're not equal, and start to act accordingly, such as taking jobs we're good at, and getting paid equally for them (That's the one thing I do think that should be kept for in women striving for "equality"), we'll all be a lot happier. If you're capable of doing both manly and womanly things, then great. However, if you keep struggling to do things that you're not successfully doing, simply because an idea says that because everything is now equal, then maybe you should take a step back and go and do something you are successful at. That's not to say that if you're a woman, you should go and be a housewife and raise kids because thats what you're good at, that's to say that if you're struggling as a mechanic because of a lack of mechanical aptitude, you should try a different job, one that you're good at. Same for being a man, if you're a crap nurse, give up and do something that you're good at. Wahey for patronizing generalisations.

Feel free to stone away for this sexist idea that we're not equal. /erects flameshield

Edit: This probably came across as patronizing and confusing. Sorry if it did so, I didn't mean to be either!

Double edit: Tried to clarify what I mean. I'm being very generalising here, because I'm making a general observation. I'm not deliberately picking on specific people here. I'm trying to be as unpatronizing as possible.

Never walk behind a stationary woman driver's car on an upward slope if she looks likely to move any second,
she will inevitably roll back before she moves forward.

Also, when at a pedestrian crossing, a man will look to see if he can cross, and if not, push the button, a woman will push the button, then look to see if she can cross before it changes.

Don't know why, prove me wrong.

Something I Don't Understand
If a man hits a woman its perfectly acceptable for her to smack him one back in self defence,
yet some people think if a woman hits a man and he hits her back its wrong.

I don't understand this at all. I mean, if I started smacking my brother about as in I was seriously trying to hurt him (as opposed to just playfully giving him a slap) I'd expect some kind of retaliation.

Reading this qotw
...makes me think that there well may be no sexism as such, just disdain. One could be forgiven for thinking that alot of the sexist encounters outlined here are borne out of meeting utter cunts of whichever sex, rather than a view of the whole of that sex. Or maybe that's what sexism actually is - disdain without good reason.

I'm trying to think of a sexist view that I have - can't really think of one, as working in a male dominated profession for over ten years a few years back got me exposed to just about all the sexism I could stomach for one lifetime.

Oooh hang on - men don't appreciate flowers. They have no idea how lovely they are, from the most complicated lily to the smallest forget-me-not.
I genuinely believe this to be true. I've never met a man who personally liked flowers - I've known plenty of men who give flowers as a "tool" or "gesture", but none who actually liked them as objects of beauty.

Anyone else a little worried about the level of bitterness bubbling away under the surface of some b3tans?
I thought this thread'd be a little more light hearted than this! All seems to be descending into gender warfare! I can't be the only one who doesn't feel too strongly about all this?

I hold doors for men and women, it's polite.

I don't generally find female comics funny, but that's more because they seem to do the style of comedy I don't like. All shouting "willy" and giggling. Same reason I don't like Graham Norton or Russell Brand.

I don't believe in affirmative action, but I do believe in equal pay.

Who cares what the men in adverts are portrayed as. Some people are like that and just because their character sells stuff better than me is no reason to get defensive. Think about the boots ads and things that portray women as hair and nail obsessed shopaholics, or the stupid perfume ads.

A note to the men who are saying things like "women expect equality but say you can't hit them", you seem to be missing an important point: It's not really necessary to hit anyone. If a woman started hitting me I'd do the same thing I would if it were a man, either walk away or restrain them.

Can anyone who agrees just leave me a reply, a full stop'd do, and restore my faith in humanity. Or if you really disagree, I'd love to hear why you care so much?

Sorry about the length since I don't have a point!

I just wanted to contribute an interesting bit of science.
It's been shown that women's breasts are getting larger every generation and puberty is starting earlier. A lot of people will insist this is due to:

A) bovine hormones,
B) weight gain,
C) some other sign of the apocalypse,

when in reality, it's merely small-scale human evolution. Women's breasts are increasing in size specially because women with large breasts statistically have more sex. Mammary tissue grows all throughout puberty, so the most efficient way of developing larger breasts is to extend puberty. Extending it to end later would infringe on the age of reproductive maturity, so instead nature has selected those who begin slightly earlier.

Furthermore, this is also the reason men are getting taller. But since men can reproduce as soon as they hit puberty, maturation tends to end later (confirming the theory that young men are just a bit less mature than women).

Bottom line: Sexy people have more sex!

The future of human evolution - barring the chavs and hillbillies who mate like rabbits - looks hot.

I'm female and i'm 19... therefore still a teenager.
I'm supposed to relate to this complete pile of wank that is constantly shoved in my face
and then clap my little hands with joy and swoon over some controlling, stalking, sparkly dead eyed idiot who's face is constantly spasming into a stereotypical angst look.

I find it insulting that i'm expected to like this.
Especially since its like reading the fanfiction of a 12 year old girl who forgot there had to be a plot until 5 minutes before the end.

Unfortunately some are still drooling over that glittery idiot wishing he would stalk them.

is a sexist word apparently.
A couple of girls went mental at me for using the word casually because they found it offensive. I swiftly retorted, saying:
"people use the word murder casually all the time, eg: 'I could murder a kebab etc' and I'm sure a person whose son or daugter had been murdered would find that offensive. Should we stop saying that too?"
One of them quickly replied saying: "yes they should".

Humourless bitch. Still, retorting probably only made me look like a twat. One can't win in these situations.

Women are sexist..
Look at Advertising for an example.

We have various ads suggesting men are simple or stupid (e.g Oatsosimple). We also have various ads showing men in various states of undress (Diet Coke, various ice cream ads, almost all perfume ads) and women enjoying that with some even leering over the bloke.

Yet, we have no ads that suggest women are stupid, and the one recent ad that showed a half naked women with a man showing his approval (the M&S ad) was publicly decryed as sexist.

Except me, that is. Whee!

I've been with my man for four and a half years now. EVERYONE, including my dad, my grandmothers, even my boss at work, is absolutely convinced I just can not wait to be legally bound to someone and then pop out shrivelled squiggles while stretching my skin and ruining my future of adventures.

I don't see the point in marriage. Why do I need to sign a legal document to say I love someone? I say it to him, and he knows I mean it. He says it to me and I know he means it. We'll continue saying it, no pens or dresses needed.

And children. Now I really don't understand them. People actually act shocked when I don't coo or covet their wriggling forms. They're not cute. They're not desirable. I want to adventure and look after a little budgie who sings and nibbles my fingers!

I'm not abnormal. There have always been women who're like this. I love being the little woman, I like being smaller than my man and giggley, and him wearing the trousers (I get to wear the skirts and I do love my skirts) and being looked after. But that's about as womanly or girly as I get. I'm happy staying like this. No accessories are needed. I'm happy. I have everything I want, except a house with him, and see no reason for those things. They would make me sad and ruin every dream I ever had.

I can't explain that to them though, because I'm a woman and I'm supposed to want those things! ~sigh~

P.S- I'm more than happy for other people who want those things to get them though and I can not wait for the day I become an aunt! I'll be mad and give them pennies, then send them home to their mother. Heehee!
