Yesterday, I pulled a bunch of responses from an Ask Reddit thread to make a post about the things guys want women to stop doing immediately. It was interesting to see what about girls drives guys crazy, but at the same time, I couldn’t help thinking… “Guys do stuff that drive girls crazy also!” Since I want everything to be even here, I’m now going to pull responses from an Ask Reddit thread on the things women want guys to stop doing immediately.
Now, please do not take this the wrong way. I’m not sitting here saying I hate all men because #feminism. I’m not saying that all guys do this stuff, or that all dudes suck. I just think it’s okay to point out the flaws in people sometimes, and since we already did that with women, it’s only fair to do it with men now. Here are 16 of the most annoying things guys do, according to the ladies. Dudes, if you’re reading… please cut it out.
Sending Us Pictures Of Your PenisLewisLuwi: Sending d*ck pics. STOP sending me d*ck pics.. seriously. If I wanted to see it, I would have told you (I don't) Seriously, this needs to stop. I know of too many stories where guys just sent a girl a picture of their penis without even asking if it was okay first. That's gross! If we don't ask for it, don't send it to us. Don't assume we just want to see it because you think you and your penis are so great. Source: ShutterStock
Telling Us To Smileeifos: I hate it when men tell me to smile. I have resting bitch face, I can't help it. Just because I'm not smiling doesn't mean I'm unhappy. Besides, nobody owes it to anyone else to smile. For all you know, my cat just got run over, or I'm sick, or just don't feel like smiling. My female friends complain about the same thing sometimes, but I've never heard a man tell another man they should smile. I HATE THIS PLEASE MAKE IT STOP. Seriously, enough! I don't have to walk around with a smile on my face all the time. Leave me alone!
Being Freaked Out By Periodsbrownidegurl: Being freaked out about menstruation. It's a fact of life. Call it by its name-- not "raggin'" or "getting a visit from Aunt Flo." Should I call your penis a "pee pee"? If you're confused about menstruation, that's fine-- we were too at first! Ask questions in an open, respectful way and we'll tell you what comes out of where and when and why. Not only will we like you more for taking a sincere interest in our biology, but you might even get better sex out of it (keep track of our cycles; many women are hornier around ovulation.) Above all, dispense with the myths and slurs. Menstruation doesn't turn a woman into a raging bitch, render her incapable of rational thought, or attract sharks. It's not an excuse to write off a woman's emotions, belittle her with crude jokes, or lock her in a literal or figurative menstrual hut. It's not a disease. It's a fact of life. You shoot white stuff out of your d*cks and have wrinkly flesh sacks that writhe of their own accord like John Carpenter creatures. Let's just say we both have some pretty interesting parts and work on loving them more. Agreed! Source: ShutterStock
Call Us Cute When We're Angrymyrealgrandparents: Laugh and call me cute when I start getting angry and passionate about a subject I'm talking about. It degrades my opinion and embarrasses me. Ugh, I hate this. I get it all the time because I'm short and I look younger than I am, so whenever I get particularly angry, people think it's funny to say patronizing things like, "Look how cute you are!" No. Get away from me. Source: ShutterStock
Comparing Us To Other Womencos_css: I get that it's supposed to be a compliment, but "you're hotter than she is" doesn't make me feel very good. I don't want to be compared to other women. I also don't want to worry about my boyfriend thinking another woman is hotter than me. Yeah, this is definitely not the best compliment you can give a girl. Source: ShutterStock
Making It Clear That You're A Nice GuySchrodingersVacation: Pointing out that they are a "Gentleman" or a "Nice guy." So you're a well mannered, normal member of society. What do you want, a f****** cookie? Good for you, join the other 5 billion functioning adults with manners. The ones that usually point it out are the ones that are neither gentlemanly nor nice. Women that don't notice that you are a nice person are not worth your time. If you have to point it out, that generally means it is not seen in your normal actions, therefore you are NOT, in fact a nice, gentlemanly person. FYI. Yup, exactly. Couldn't have said it better myself.
Saying Really Sexual Things To Girls They're Not Datingjadesaddiction: I am a quiet girl. I am fairly shy. I do NOT want you to tell me "Oh yeah. All the shy girls are freaks." I have been told that every single year of high school. I'm minding my own business. Mind yours. and also, if you know a girl who is lesbian/bi, don't ask if you can watch. I came out in high school and it never failed to have a guy come up to me and ask if he can watch me make out with random chicks. I'm also very shy, and I've heard way too many guys say things like, "Quiet girls are freaks in bed." Um... stop. You're embarrassing yourself and making me uncomfortable. Source: ShutterStock
Insulting Us For Turning Guys Downstarfish-georgia: Please stop telling me I'm an entitled bitch for ignoring men that creep me out. News flash. I really am actually entitled to ignoring you if I see fit. And that doesn't make me a bitch. If a guy creeps me out, I'm going to ignore him. And unfortunately, most guys then take it upon themselves to insult me. Why? Because they feel entitled to say whatever they want, and get angry if I take issue with it. Seriously, any guy who does this is a complete d-bag. Ugh. Source: ShutterStock
Calling Us Pet NamesWell__ThisIsAwkward: I'm late to this party, but, for the love of God, stop calling me honey, sweetheart, and any other terms of endearment unless you are my SO or a close family member. It's not cute. It's condescending. I don't like being called "sweetheart" by some guy I don't even know. Ugh. Gross.
Catcallingpronetosquee: Catcalls. It's scary when you are walking at a safe distance from the road, minding your own business, and then someone in a passing car decides to shout something at you. It IS scary, and it's something guys will likely never understand. Catcalls don't make women feel good, they make us feel violated. They're not complimentary, because you probably do it to everyone. They're rude and uncalled for.
Posting Our Nudes PubliclyTardar_Sauce: Posting nudes you received consensually. If a girl trusted you enough to send them to you, you are the scum of the earth for posting them anywhere. I don't care how wrong she did you, that's sh*tty. I'm glad that kinda thing has recently been made illegal in some states. Yeah, this sucks, and it happens all the time. Also, don't hold it over a girl's head. One of my friends was afraid to stop talking to her ex because he kept blackmailing her with the naked pics he asked her to send him years before. It was horrible. Source: ShutterStock
Asking Us If We're PMSing When We're Upsetoffensivegrandma: Asking if I'm PMSing or on my period every time I'm upset, you have instantly invalidated every woman's emotions about anything. If something is upsetting me, I am allowed to be upset about it. Just... stop. Seriously. This will drive any woman crazy. It's not funny. Source: ShutterStock
Asking Us If We're FinishedZombie_butterfly: Please stop asking us if we came yet, or telling us to come. Putting pressure on us totally kills it. I mean, I get it sometimes when you're trying dirty talk, but asking, "Did you come yet?" more than once is just... no. Source: ShutterStock
Not Taking No For An Answergoosesvgeese: If I say no, I'm not interested, leave me alone. Don't question me about why or if I have a boyfriend: it doesn't matter. I said no. I always tell you girls that the way to get rid of a guy you're not interested in is to simply be honest and say no. However, most guys are persistent and just can't stop bugging you, even when you've said no. Listen up, dudes: it's not cute. It's not going to change our minds. It's annoying, and it sucks. It's so incredibly uncomfortable when I tell a guy I'm not interested, and he keeps pushing it. It's also so rude and entitled.
Ignoring What Makes Us Feel Goodwineandfingcheese: stop ignoring the clitoris. Okay, this isn't exactly every guy's fault. For some reason, some dudes don't know that when it comes to sexual pleasure, stimulating the clitoris is really what does it for women. If your dude doesn't realize it, tell him. But seriously guys, get it through your heads. Source: ShutterStock
Acting Like They Deserve Sexbridgesquid: Stop assuming that because we're nice to you you deserve our love. Being nice is just something you should do. As someone once said (I'm sorry that I can't remember who), "Women are not machines that you put kindness into and sex comes out." I hate, hate, hate when I hear guys say things like, "I bought her a drink, and she wouldn't even talk to me or dance with me, WTF?" Um, listen up. If you want to willingly purchase a drink (or whatever) for a girl, go for it... but just because you do one nice thing for a girl doesn't mean she owes you herself in return. Get over yourself! You can't just essentially buy a woman. And being nice to us doesn't mean we automatically have to sleep with you. Source: ShutterStock
