*sigh* I think some of you just need to go out and chat to girls and women. That way they'll be less of these silly girl Q & A threads.

It might be that it is easier to ask us CR females than doing it face to face. I think we should create a couple of threads ourselves asking the CR males some questions. Don't you think?

BECAUSE...sad truth about guys here, girls, but it can also apply to anime ("Why so many harem comedies and marriage contracts?"):

Some guys don't really date in high school. We're not talking "losers", we're talking about the misogyny that happened when we still thought our Best Buds were more interesting than "icky" girls, and found each others' bro-company more interesting than risking the rejection of trying to ask a girl out in high school. (At the age when they're trying to assert their independence by how quickly they can shoot down guys' egos.) A holdover from junior high, when girls really were Icky and Weird, and social understanding never quite developed into the years of puberty when guys should be experimenting with Those Weird Creatures Who Sit On The Toilet Instead of Standing.

So, it's safer to hang out with people who think and see the world as you do, can talk about what "chicks" look and act like from the outside, and can share your fears and resentments of venturing into strange territory that can bring crushing rejection. There's always the sports teams, the hangouts, the other safe social refuges from the cold, harsh judgmental world that might call you an ungraceful idiot.
Later on, in college, you might not have your old junior high->HS buds anymore, you're now on your own or with a different set of "bros", and now expected to conquer your fears of rejection and get serious about asking girls out. But since one might have fewer actual experiences, most of the Observation of Chick Behavior comes from the mass media--Like TV and advertising, which is largely pitched to kissing up to an "empowered" and vanity-driven female demographic, and their fear-driven fantasy of reducing males' image to an unthreatening image of loser slobs who don't ask directions and won't let go of the remote. Needless to say, it isn't encouraging to thoughts of success.

(Fear of Girls is the driving force behind most shonen anime comedy as well, but there we're talking about a country that almost literally separates the boys and girls into no mutual social contact from an even earlier age--Also giving us the Fear of Boys shows for shoujo, like yaoi fantasies or romances where the girl can't make her senpai notice her because he thinks girls are "boring" and not as interesting as the sports team.)

Which is how someone can be in their 20's and still ask "Do you girls really, like, put on makeup and stuff? That's weird!"
Trying not to sound like the same 13-yo. who asked that back in seventh grade.

No idea why. Some of the questions like "why do you like to dance?" could easily be asked to men as well.

So you're basically stating that we are back at the school dance in Elementary/Junior High where the boys were at one side, girls at the opposite side, and teachers dancing?

Why a question about this is a question in and of it self... -__-

Because women are fascinating, beautiful creatures so deserving of our love and intention. They are a race of GODDESSES! We wish to know more about you girls, you sexy beasts you.

Yyyyyep. Only now you're an "adult", and trying to turn those fears into a sweeping social resentment and self-justification, so that it's not just your fault.

On a darker note, there have been more PSA campaigns to prevent domestic abuse by telling parents "TELL your HS-age son that rape or abuse against girls isn't justified because he might think they 'deserve' it".
Which is a thought likely to manifest itself during the angry pubescent years, and either the lone feeling or the shared bros-in-combat feeling--encouraged by rejection or the media--that They Have Everything, We Have Nothing.

not all girls are the same.. also thought you of few users here would have gotten used to such?

and just because themes like feminist threads, american (banned, or race events) threads to more other in the same period, to these about girl threads its not common when something is hot that it will be more about the subject.

Profound. And get what you are implying. Might be true for a few CR users, but not the majority. I'm certainty not one of those timid people. But I'm going to create my own thread and ask the males of this site a question. Please do not think little of me. Sometimes its fun to mess with folks.

It is like an Inquisition!

These are some of the ones asked in the first few pages......

Why do girls wear black underwear?

Do girls care about their breast size?

What's in your purses?

Why do you shave your eyebrows and draw them on with pencils?

Why do girls like to dance?

Why do you put paint on you face?

and the winner is......


Girls, Why Do You Breathe Air?

These questions are usually asked by toddlers, so I guess we can come to a synopsis that very very young boys are asking these questions.
As 3-4 years of age is the "why" period in all the questions in their beginning stages of conversations.
