    I don't think it was hate. I think it was more of not understanding or trying to figure it out.

    I took your thread to be very light hearted and totally chuckled at the clip you added. You didn’t mangle anything.
    Poking fun at the opposite sex is always entertaining if done in a fun loving way

    I hope this isn’t considered gossiping. Well perhaps it is but traveler is on another site and expresses himself much differently there. He’s well liked and respected by members, especially the women. Oddly enough the site he’s on has a political section wguch he doesn’t post in. He’s a changed man and I think you’d be proud of him Gary.
    I know I am.

    To the question of OP, funny and yes, occasionally it's just fun seeing you all get all bent out of shape, but, not in a mean spirited way.

    Oh, you are funny! No, I don’t mean crossdressing, although, each to his own. Lol. I was referring to the suit and tie dress code. Frankly, for me, nothing is more attractive than seeing a man rocking a soft pair of jeans and casual shirt. Yes, I recall the Monty Python skit you mentioned. Fabulous.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. I know quite a number of men, my DH included, who are quite particular in their tastes.

    My DH can be a slob about some things, but when it comes to colors, whether shirts or wall paint, he is SUPER fussy. My nephew not only has a far better 'design eye' than his wife; he's a much better cook as well.

    Sexist stereotypes are a cliche, and like racist stereotypes, not as amusing as they used to be. I particularly notice this with our younger friends, of which we have many. The kinds of jokes and comments that my parents and their friends used to laugh at, don't even come to mind in today's conversations.

    Times have changed, thankfully. in 1956 my father forced my mom to quit a well-paying job because she started earning more $$$ than he did. She was devastated - she loved what she was doing and the company adored her, promoting twice in less than two years. Looking back on it now I don't think she ever recovered emotionally from that.

    By the time I was in my 30's and 40's I out-earned my DH (circa 1980's). He didn't surpass me until we were in our late 40's and in our 50's. He didn't care and neither did I; it wasn't a contest of egos the way it was with 1950's men.

    We stay together after 45 yrs because we are best friends, lovers, and we want to. If he gets annoyed, he's free to walk....and so am I.

    I cannot even imagine why anyone would want to stay with someone who annoys them. Life is too short for negative attitudes.

    In my marriage it is the complete opposite. My Husband knows everything and there is no changing his mind. I can't even win when I tell him to relax and don't do so much. Does he listen to me NO. In our over 50yrs of marriage has he ever listened to me NO. Why you ask do I stay with him . The answer is simple I stay with him because I love him ! Yes I am Nutty.

    Not nutty at all in my view, ......what you describe in your marriage is someone who is "being a human being" .

    I experienced the egos concerning women earning more than the man the other way around, so that I believe it mattered more to my then wife that in effect I wasn't providing enough because my pay was then lower than hers (she did used to say "What's yours is mine, and what's mine is my own" as a motto too ).

    My guess is any man who finds women annoying also finds a lot of things annoying not just women.

    We do it playfully to discover who the real men are. The ones wearing big boy pants will dish it out in the same tone it’s given, which is generally done in a playful manner. They can handle it and prove so by their responses.


    The men not wearing big boy pants will take it as a personal attack and respond according. They will get totally bent out of shape and cry like a baby . They will then call anybody they can to help them deal with the situation including the authorities.


    In my experience, men who get ‘this’ annoyed, lack a sense of humour, take life far too seriously and whine far worse than any women.


    Real men can handle it.

    "It can't be easy being a woman today" (or in any era perhaps).

    I'm assured women do like men who can stand up for themselves, it makes them feel secure and the like, "so in a sense beating their chest"!

    However, at the same time I'm sure if I were a woman I'd like a man who was a "gentleman" too, so as per your photo above, prepared to show a softer side when needed, or you'd like them to.

    No, not easy being a woman, no doubt about it .

    Some good, strong men though do still say "women are different" (meaning awkward at times) .

    Heh, this thread is going where (IMO) most men should never need be.

    Sure, playful is fun, it’s where we go.

    But, hell, I’m generly just happy to be fed and put to bed, without all the baggage of trying to figger out the whys of the fairer of our species.

    Simply put, men are dogs, wimin are cats.

    Ever notice how most dogs get all curious around cats, ears perked up, staring?
    The cat gets all nervous, ears back, tail twitching back and forth, strutting.

    One or two sniffs from a dog nose and that muzzle will recv an extended claws swipe.

    Hell, wimin have a tough enough time trying to figger each other out.

    Men should, sit, stay, eat too fast, burp, play, run, fetch, chew things, hump.

    That’s our wheelhouse.

    and keeps us happy



    just my opinion
    don't care to argue with anyone about it
    but
    if you have beer
    I'll pretend like I'm listening
