Depends on what it is and how hungry I am.

It's my stomach who decides.

Must mean I'm a man, then. This is how I pick which slice of cake or pizza I want. I prefer the cake slice with more icing and pizza slice with more toppings also.

Honestly, I guess it does. You don't have your gender listed.

There is only a limited amount of times cookies will go around and those are also limited. That stuff should get the brain running. Guess who of your cousins will make it anywhere in life and who won't.

Can I laugh? Because I just thought I'd point out that by your logic, if God did a bum job on man.... Then what does that make woman since woman was made from man? :O

Also, this forum thread's title is -way- to generalized. You're basically saying that -all- men are like your cousin, with only the evidence of your cousin's actions to go on. Bad form, ole' bean.

And just to throw this out there, I'm a man, come from a family of 2 boys (one me), and two girls. At mealtimes (pizza, mmmhh) I'd eat not really caring whether this piece of pizza was bigger than that piece, but I would eat more than the females. However, said feminine siblings would examine the food and take the tastiest, cheeziest, meatiest looking pieces.

I guess it just depends on the persons personality. I've never really cared whether this piece was bigger, or cheesier, or whatever than another, it's just food (I do care if it tastes good or not, though. :P). But some people really care about their foods appearance, or size.

Now then, I'm gonna go sneak off and make a "why do woman always take the cheesier pizza slice" thread. :>

nah, jking.

I didn't know it had such big implications! xD!

So he is a tactician, I suppose.

Given that I have really fast metabolism (even at 39) and like to eat anyways, I would definitely take more than a fair share.

All your cookies belong to me now...

I was giving my family some pre-thanksgiving cookies and other treats for them to try so I can make more of them for tomorrow.

The cookies, chips and rolls weren't exactly equal in size, so some were clearly bigger than the rest. I brought some to my family, which consists of 4 girls and 1 guy. The girls always grabbed without really paying attention. But my male cousin examined them carefully and chose the biggest one each time I brought something around. Even when there was no obvious biggest piece, he still selected carefully as is there was really a difference. Everyone else kept grabbing without a second thought.


You do realize that if you said that in Japan, you'd be accused of being a "cookie counter"--Ie. a crabby old grandma who's neurotically obsessed with food-portion equality because she still remembers the postwar shortages?

We'll be nice, pretend you didn't say that and move on.
(In fact, that might be a nice blanket policy to adopt with all the posts...)

Never thought it was of any significance online, really. But if certain behaviors are gendered, it's worth pondering, I guess.

Look you TRIGGERED this girl.
Cis men are pigs!!!!
Down with men. Feminism isn't about equal rights, it's about proving that females are better than men.

because they need to eat more (compared to females) to maintain good health[1], though gluttony may also apply for some people.
