That should be interesting... Why don't you make it? Or do you think I should for irony?

No kidding! Will it ever end?!?

Stereotypes have existed, do exist, and will continue to exist. People generalize due to certain actions being displayed over and over. So there's obviously SOME sort of truth to it. They're there in the first place because GENERALLY men or women tended to exhibit the same traits, emotions, or actions, thus, creating the generalization. Of course, there will always be people who don't match up to this. I think a lot of us will fit into a certain mold, yet break the molds of others. We're all different people, with special and unique qualities that make up our own awesome identity.

I am not uninformed of reality, and I'm most certainly not delusional. As I've said or implied several times to other people who've made comments, I'm trying to even things out a bit by having made a thread about men. If you don't like it, you yourself can easily "pick better company."


Hostile much? I just explained, quite rationally I thought, why these "I don't understand women" posts exist.

You did ask why generalizations are made. It is in big, bold print right at the top of the first page.

Eh... Not as hostile as I seemed. You came off as patronizing, and that's what I reacted to.

Doesn't everyone generalize something at some point? I think the issue isn't generalization, it's their actions and attitudes after they do it. For example, I generally do not date afro-americans women for a slew of reasons. I also don't care for fat chicks. You can only imagine the instant disgust I feel when I see a fat, black chick *shudders*. But on that note, I will not disrespect them all blatantly calling all black women this and fat chicks that. I simply choose to escape their presence. I don't, however, hate them. I hate individual people for individual reasons. But for people I generalize, it's more so I'm being more reserved because my expectations are not that high. Some do impress and we become friends, but I don't seek them out. Like I'm sure some people here love Big titty girls while others love girls with big asses (I'm a titty man myself), but I'm not gonna NOT talk to a girl because she doesn't have big titties. I'll simply be drawn to the big breasted one more cause it's more attractive to me. If you put a fat white girl next to a big tittied black chick and told me to choose, I'd choose the black chick. But put that same black chick next to a big tittied spanish chick and the spanish chick wins.
Long story short, preference. yeah, we generalize to our liking.

Really this thread, Don't get me started. I avoid ever saying such comments because I believe it is wrong to class women as "women" and men as "men" every person is different regardless of race or gender I've said this for years.

Some of my former girlfriends most common and last words were "You men," I never classed her as a "woman" just as a person, and that's how it should be. Men and women are not really as different as people try to make them out to be.

It's the internet. Half of everyone on here isn't really talking seriously, and the other half talk way too seriously. And then the other half is just seeking a true companion to share in the anguish of their souls.
I think men generalize women because we're trying to find a pattern. We're simple creatures, you know? We're very fond of finding one answer to multiple solutions. It was probably a man who came up with the saying "Two birds with one stone".
Then there's all the women who give them reason to believe these generalizations. Like, I've noticed that unless they're telling you to treat women like ladies, you should rarely trust a woman who gives you advice on how to deal with women xP Like, I've heard women say that when they say "nothing" it's really something or that they'll never talk about how they really feel far too many times, even when they do just that.
In the end we just go into confusion overload and spill our guts out on tumblr with a really, really heartfelt reaction gif XD Or we make posts on forums that objectify and generalize women.

Or maybe, the whole thing is just for revenge, or because, like all humans, sometimes we just need to spew the stew that's been boiling inside our heads, which rarely actually corresponds to what we really think or mean

Well personally I dont generalize based on gender. I only make one generalization: There is stupid, and there is me (this would say smart but I haven't found anyone that matches my intellect yet). Nothing more, nothing less.

Each and every human being is complicated in my opinion. Not just women.

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.


This whole comment just seems wrong. Most men aren't that judgmental for instance. when I see a girl I usually go straight to one of her best features and tend to look toward the positive. that's just from a visual standpoint.

the point is this post is stereotyping, generalizing guys and its just not true

and why would you have to even the score? didn't women start those other threads you were talking about?
