This is a response to the "Why are women so complicated?" and "What is a girl?" threads that are popular at the moment, and primarily ill-natured comments associated with these threads. Please note that this isn't an attack on all men.
It's especially ironic that alot of the complaints about us women regard how self-conscious and overly-critical men apparently tend to believe us to be. As for the ladies who's behavior actually fits the overwhelming stereotype of women, perhaps they wouldn't act that way if "you men" wouldn't be so judgmental. The nasty comments about us females accurately portray how vicious men can be.

Edit at 1:29 pm on March 28, Eastern US time:
The point of my thread is "Tit for Tat." I'm well aware of the realities of generalizations. This is supposed to focus on evening the score. I've mentioned this several times in the comments, starting shortly after this thread was made. I'm not interested in repeating myself anymore.

Edit at 8:57 pm on March 29, Eastern US time:
My wording makes it sound like I'm taking this topic much more seriously than I am. This thread is meant as a "right back at ya" to the specific men who make comments about all women being succubi (and far more graphic and wordy terminology). I also noted the apparent popularity of threads that I mentioned when I first made this. I didn't find many threads about men. At the time, I was looking for something make my first thread about. I was bit annoyed with the hypocrisy of the seemingly anti-woman comments that spewed anger, was bored, and felt that the threads about women are very repetitive... In short, I thought that this was a good topic to start out with. I wanted to learn the ropes of thread-making by tackling a controversial topic, is all.

WHY SO SERIOUS?- The Joker

It allows us to be surprised and appreciate the women who don't fit the generalizations even more than we would have otherwise.

To be fair, lotsa female generalize as well.

I think it's because women can be very complex, sensitive, and moody.
Not all women, but most of the gals I know are.

Men and women act different and to some men, it's kind of like a whole new world.

I can't blame them, but at the same time those who generalize aren't realizing that each individual, male or female, is different and there's no magic potion or guide to knowing how to treat someone or react to them.

Some would say so but I worry about their mental health.

Haha, these threads about the sexes are undying aren't they?

Well, as a response, I would say some people are just overly sensitive and take their drama to the next level by having the urge to make shallow generalizations and bash on others to take their rage out on.

Either that, or I just have a cold heart

Oh, I'm fully aware and accept that we all generalize. I got tired of the hypocritical comments, so I decided to make things a bit more fair by making a thread about men.

I say this as a fellow female, but you do realize that it isn't so much the "vicious" way men judge and act that make women act like the stereotypical women right? It's the vicious way that women act and judge to each other that does it. Like for example most of the women who spend hours putting on make up, doing their hair, and picking out their outfits are usually doing it to impress other women not men. Instead of physically beating other females into their "proper" place in the social group like men do; women tend to use more verbal abuse attacking each others self-worth.

You can just generalize the inexperienced men who ask such questions.

Anybody can be complicating. Those threads and pictures such as the one shown below are usually made out of humor, nothing else.

A lot of my friends always say things like "I can't understand you damn women", but they of course don't really mean it.

You cold-hearted? Not really. Just logical and honest. Then again, I might also be an iceberg, so I'm probably just biased.

Not all woman are like that but i have seen a lot that are. Even men can be pigs though. A woman is more unlikely to take care of herself without some kind of help because they are not the dominant gender. If you want to blame woman for being needy, blame men for keeping them in the kitchen. My girl works for a living and our kids go to day care everyday so there is an equal partnership. Really it just depends on the person but both genders can be a pain in the arse.

I don't understand women either, all I know is they like when guys be a dick toward them. Makes them want you more and sex.


Don't fall for that BS. The issue is that some emotionally immature girls believe they can take you on as an improvement project, to make themselves feel accomplished in relationships. You do NOT want to get involved with girls who prefer "broken" guys and like to be mistreated.

Who gets the girl in the end, gets married, has a family? Down-to-earth men, who are stable, and noticeably adore their women.

I'm just making things more fair with a thread about men.
Personally, my middle and high school experience with boys was the opposite of what you described in your last statement. I spent alot of my time trying to keep myself from getting in fights with men.
