If we could sum up all female stereotypes into one sentence it would be, “Women care too much” and if we could sum all male stereotypes up into one sentence it would be, “Men don’t give a $*%&.” But there are plenty of people whose blood boils at these types of gross generalizations. Here are 15 male stereotypes men are sick of.

They’re embarrassed of “couples activities”

They gloss over it when their friends ask what they’re doing on Sunday, and the true answer is, “Going to Target with my girlfriend.” They roll their eyes and moan and groan, right?. That’s not necessarily true! Guys have errands they have to run at Target too, ya know? If they really love you, they enjoy taking care of house chores together.

They’re football obsessed

They’re football obsessed

If football is on in the room, you couldn’t possibly get a man’s attention. It’s like their brains shut off and they become yelling, huffing and puffing animals, right? Mmmm there are actually plenty of guys who, while they enjoy football, are perfectly mature and will engage you in conversation, even if a game is on nearby.

They don’t eat healthy

They don’t eat healthy

All men hate salads and are embarrassed to eat your vegan cooking, wouldn’t you say? Actually, men hate weight gain and indigestion just as much as women do. Plenty of grown men are proud to eat healthy, and even swap healthy tips with their friends.

They’re afraid of girl talk

They’re afraid of girl talk

If you and your friends are sitting around, analyzing someone’s relationship, your guy is going to quietly back away, isn’t he? Actually if he is an emotionally mature person, he probably enjoys talking about human nature too.

They don’t want to talk about feelings

They don’t want to talk about feelings

Perhaps men aren’t as open immediately and indiscriminately as women are, but when they care about someone, they’ll talk about their feelings.

They don’t like cuddling

They don’t like cuddling

Oh please: they’ve been looking for someone to spoon them and hold their faces in their busum since they left their mothers. Cuddling is the best and everybody knows it.

They don’t understand women’s clothing

They don’t understand women’s clothing

Actually I have plenty of straight men compliment me on detailed aspects of my outfits.

They don’t like women with opinions

They don’t like women with opinions

Most men assume you’re a b*tch if you give an assertive opinion, and don’t sugarcoat it, ammiright? Maybe terrified little boys. But grown men find a woman who is proud of her opinions attractive.

They’re messy

They’re messy

By now we have to know that there are plenty of clean men and there are plenty of messy women. Messiness or cleanliness really has nothing to do with gender, but rather your personality type.

They don’t listen

They don’t listen

If a guy has chosen to spend his life with you, it’s because he values your opinions, cherishes your advice, and cares about what’s happening in your life. Don’t accept anyone who tunes you out.

They all want to cheat

They all want to cheat

After a certain age, a lot of men value a deep connection and commitment with someone they care about more than fleeting physical pleasure.

 

 

They don’t pick up on the details

They don’t pick up on the details

Actually, many men do notice your manicure or the highlights you added around your face or the basil garnish on their dinner.

They’re terrified of periods

They’re terrified of periods

Sure, periods aren’t their favorite thing. But after a certain age, men have had enough girlfriends, female friends and female relatives to hear, “I need a tampon” without cringing.

They hate “intellectual” movies

They hate “intellectual” movies

Boy, men kinda sound like brute animals huh? Not fair! In fact, plenty of men have a better attention span than I do for films that take time to appreciate.

Taking photos annoys them

 

Taking photos annoys them

You might be sneaking selfies with your guy, but in reality, he probably cherishes the memories just as much as you do.

    How many were intervied?
    Single?
    Married?
    How long?
    Did their answer work?

  • SMe

    Simply put, it appears these were answered by men trying to date the author. I’d much rather love the sterotypes to say I’m different that to say I’m like most.

  • Jawawa

    Why are 99% of those in the photos are non Whites?

  • wimsy

    If you think painting your fingernails is going to get you married, honey, good luck to you.

  • wimsy

    Want to see a disgusting mess? Go in a Ladies Room.

    Men: If you want to make sure you get up in morning, nothing beats turning on the Today Show in your bedroom. Those cackling women, all talking at once, would make any man jump out of his skin, let alone his bed.

  • wimsy

    It’s not women’s clothing men don’t understand. It’s why women are willing to pay those ridiculous prices! A women’s shirt — same thing as a men’s — costs twice the price. A skirt — little more than a couple of yards of cloth — costs a fortune. I passed by a cosmetics counter at a department store and saw some the idiotic prices of the paints and powders women use to make themselves ‘presentable.’ Absolutely insane.

  • Scott Allison

    Yes….inability to discuss or show emotions, that we are all knuckle dragging football fans, don’t like intellectual movies – I don’t know who the author has dated or friends with but certainly a narrow spectrum here. All time most loathed expression….”man up”. Inane

  • Andy

    What about the other ones we’re sick of:

    1. Men are always made out to be idiots on TV and in movies. Want to know what the overwhelming majority of highest grossing films of all time have? Male characters who are strong, capable and intelligent. Who wants to take their sons to a movie that makes men out to be idiots or evil as far as stories go?

    2. That men are to blame when they cheat AND when their partner cheats. It doesn’t work both ways.

    3. That men are incapable fathers – as exampled by default custody given to mothers in the vast majority of cases.

    4. That all men are presumed violent. Long story short, if the cops are called to a house because of a domestic dispute, it’s the man leaving in cuffs regardless of the situation.

    • Vandellish

      Good stuff. Especially #4 as far as black men are concerned. Sometimes even our partners think any confrontation we initiate means that we’re ready to fight or argue.
      I’d say #9 (We don’t like women with opinions) is the biggest crock to me. But I do think #16 (Pictures always annoy us) is still largely true.

  • Aiych

    Seriously, busum?! I think you mean ‘bosom’….

    Come on MN, don’t act like hood bumpkins. I know y’all aren’t journalists but at least spell check.
