Let’s face it: there’s a lot of myths about men AND women floating around out there that aren’t exactly true.
But today we’re gonna focus on the fellas…
Are y’all ready for this?
What myths about men are 100% false?
AskReddit users opened up and shared their thoughts.
1. In the mood?
“We don’t always want to have s**. Not being in the mood isn’t reserved for women.
And we don’t enjoy s**ual harassment either.
I can’t believe how many times I’ve seen women exhibit the exact behavior they tell us is unforgivable.”
“That b**ers are 100% voluntary.
The simplest thing can happen and boom it’s straighter than railroad tracks.”
3. Just you.
“We’re not all talking to multiple women at once or that we have side b**ches
Nothing infuriates me more than being accused of cheating or lying when I have a. Never done it and b. Never given you a reason to react that way
I will gladly cut off all contact with a woman who accuses me of being a womanizer or being jealous when I’ve given her no reason to.
I have no patience for that s**t. I’m not gonna spend time getting you to not be upset with me when I didn’t do anything wrong.
Oh you’re mad cause I went out with my coworkers and 1/5 of them are women? Sucks for you.”
“That we tell the homies in detail our s**ual escapades. Most women assume we do so.
They tell their gilfriends all about our di**s.
Well ,just so yall ladies know we don’t tell the homies bout ur t**s, what happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom.”
“Female friends often times say that peeing is easier as men.
Let me introduce to you the Split Stream.
Shoots twice as much, one aiming at Narnia the other towards Neverland.”
6. Secret meetings.
“That we don’t actually care about sports we just use those days to meet in secret with the boys to plan what the patriarchy will do next.”
7. No dummies.
“That we’re dumb.
I feel like a lot of pop culture and mostly a lot of ladies out there goof on us like we’re a bunch of clueless oblivious oafs but we’re as varied as our opposite gender in regards to intelligence, I’d say.”
8. It takes all kinds.
“That we only like big b**bs.
It’s not true. Plenty of us like and even prefer small ones. Personally, I think the smaller the b**bs, the better.
Some men take this too far and proclaim that we like all b**bs and that the only prerequisite for us liking them is being able to see or touch them.
That’s not true either. We do all have our different tastes. Different men like different b**bs.”
9. A myth.
“That men want to work and stay outside all day and not take care of the kids.
Sorry to say but if you can make as much money or more than me than by all means go ahead and I will care for the kids.”
10. They do exist.
“That for men, body and eating issues don’t exist.
I have underweight friends who only recently started opening up about how much they dislike seeing their ribs easily and I have always been pretty open about how I wish it was easy to just lose 30lbs or stop binge eating fast food.
I’ve got friends who have had genuine nervous breakdowns over their persistent acne and friends with pretty gnarly stretch marks or excessive body hair who h**e that it isn’t socially acceptable to shave their legs, back, or arms.
I grew up in a rural area so ive also seen plenty of people who actively bullied kids/teens over stuff that have little control over and call them “queers” when they eventually try to do something about it.”
11. We all care.
““Good men don’t care about appearance.”
We all care about appearance.
All of us. The good ones and the bad ones. We all want beautiful women.”
12. Just bored…
“We are always h**ny.
This is false.
We are USUALLY willing to s**, but that doesn’t mean we are h**ny.
Sometimes it just means we are bored.”
13. Gentle giants.
“That intimidating looking guys like myself (tall and bulky, not over weight necessarily) are the brutes of society. In reality, a majority of us in my experience are actually very nice.
The strongest and tallest guy I know (6″6 250ish) couldn’t hurt a fly and is always scared of intimidating people. We grow being the intimidating guy in the room, it’s not fun, and it makes you hesitant to socialize because people might be scared to be friendly with you.
Being black didn’t help. My good friend even admitted in college he scared to joke around me because he didn’t want to get me offended/upset. Also, talking to women is a bit harder at times as well. Ladies, we are aware.”
14. Not all that common.
“Locker room talk. I have never experienced being in a group of guys talking graphically about their s** lives or their partners’ bodies.
At most you get a comment about how hot someone is, but definitely nothing nearly as explicit or graphic as I think most women have been led to believe (or, frankly, as graphic as I’ve heard my female friends discussing their s** lives or boyfriends bodies).”
Okay, now it’s your turn.
Tell us what myths about men you think are totally false.
