Okay. That’s not totally fair to say, I guess. In typing out the word for any arbitrary thing–like, I don’t know Brussels sprouts, public transportation, the 50 Shades Of Grey trilogy–followed by the word “suck,” you’re basically inviting someone to argue with you. (Plus, yes–girls can suck, too.) So, I’ll rephrase: While many guys are, in fact, good, productive members of our society as a whole, and have family members who love them a lot, and are overall okay humans in general, I think many people can agree that sometimes, the male gender as a whole tends to…disappoint. And let you down. And basically just dash your hopes into million tiny little pieces. I mean, the #WasteHisTime2016 hashtag happened for a reason.
Fortunately, Twitter is a great place to talk about it. It’s kind of like the ultimate slumber party in that regard–everyone has some good stories about bad things that have happened to them with guys and, luckily for us, they’re willing to share them. (Succinctly, though, since it has to be in 140 characters or less.) Basically? Guys can suck, but these tweets definitely don’t. Check ’em out:

5. BECAUSE THIS OCCURRENCE IS SO RARE:
Asked a guy a question & instead of responding w/bullshit he had the confidence to say I don't know & now I look at his FB page everyday

7. Potentially the only way to make male feminists acceptable:
stop saying you're a "male feminist" & start living the enthusiasm of Channing Tatum instead

9. You know when guys just…talk? And don’t stop?
every single party where women listen interestedly to men is an extended piece of performance art, and men have NO IDEA

11. Mention this next time some guy tells you to make him a sandwich because he thinks it’s funny:
Asking a woman to make you a sandwich is definitely the most sexist way of telling people you don't even know how to make a sandwich
