    First:

    Don't be gold diggers. No I'm not talking about when you go out with the ladies and you scam guys into buying you drinks although that's pretty nasty, it's when you date someone for their money or marry them for their money.

    If you have sex with someone for money what does that make you?

    Second:

    Stop talking about how hard you work. I've never seen a female that puts in concrete. Go put in some concrete on a blistering hot day and then you can tell me how hard you work.

    Third:

    Don't ask men if they think you're beautiful if you don't want the truth. If you put on a dress or put on certain shoes and ask a guy if he likes it and he says no you shouldn't get upset. It's almost like you're seeking approval.

    Fourth:

    If a dude breaks up with you don't tell him you're pregnant unless you really are. I don't know why women do this but when a guy breaks up with them or has a one night stand with you, they're going to want to get with you just because you lie and say you're pregnant.

    Fifth:

    Don't complain about the damsel trope and then take advantage of it in the same breath. This relates to fourth. You're expecting men to feel sorry for you because you're a woman.

    There are some more I can think of but let's let the discussion start.

    Please tell me your thoughts.

    the second is really weak. Your definition of hard is very narrow and rather silly. there is more than one way in which a job can be 'hard'.. and this has statistically next to zero connection to gender. You have left the world less than a fraction of of a fraction of 1% who have a 'hard job' -namely only concrete construction workers and that fracture barely quivers because the demographic is listed as one gender as opposed to another.

    You're fabricating a straw man out of an example.

    I never said only concrete work is hard work.

    Don't put words in my mouth if you don't mind.

    Okay we will expand your point outside the narrow confines of your concrete example. What the hell were you trying to prove by using this concrete pouring on a hot day as your example - and then using the number of women you personally know who do this exact line of work as evidence that women have no business saying how hard they work? Just how big or relevant is your 'sample' when you describe your knowledge base, by that sample ( women concrete pourers or their lack that you know) and what can it possibly show us about limitations on the concept of 'hard work' and the women outside of concrete pourers? However you choose to look at this, its pretty silly.

    Okay let's talk about any physical labor. Men always dominate those fields.

    I do not think exchanging flirtatiousness, charm and looks for a drink is nasty at all - For the guy it is always worth the risk of rejection and for the girl it is always worth the foolishness of a guy and the taste of alcohol.

    Hook-up culture in general is degenerated anyways.

    A skank.

    Manual labour is not the only hard work out there. But, it is true that women tend to complain about everything

    Well, this is the female equivalence of your first remark, so I sense some double standards here. If a woman is nasty "taking advantage" of a horny.dude in order to get drinks, it should also be nasty for a guy to not comploment a woman's attempt of earning free drinks. ;)

    I mean, if a woman spends time and money on lookibg pretty, it is natural for her to be upset when it fails, no? Obviously, it does not mean she is entitled to compliments though.

    Agree.

    True.

    What about pushing a baby out? That's hard physical labor. Have you ever done that?

    Is it just my imagination or has the near terminal testosterone poisoning sloshing around America become worse recently ?

    Freeloading? No that's nasty

    so what type of labor other than physical labor do you risk injury equal to physical labor?


    no it's not because the woman doesn't have to pay the man anything or buy him anything she's just asking for his opinion, which she's really not what she's doing is asking for him to say she's beautiful.

    I know you would want to know if you failed so you could try something else. if someone just says yes to you all the time you could look like a freaking Trainwreck.

    The problem is our modern, promiscuous culture.

    You originally used the term "hard work". Don't change your argument.

    She paid for the dress and the make up.

    Girls need fathers in their lives to teach them there is more to a woman than just her looks. Confident women from healthy households do not cry over such things.

    Meh, I think this has always existed.


    I don't think I ascribed to your meaning of hard work.


    that's for her. my experience with straight dudes who don't give a s*** what women wear they'd prefer they wear nothing.


    I'd argue that confident women don't need to ask.

    No, I admire my mother.

    That's a bit homophobic to isn't it? The idea that moms make boys gay. My parents never divorced but every friend I have that's make that had a single mother is straight.

    You're just exposing your homophobia.

    Maybe you're homophobic because you feel threatened.

    So what I said is homophobic but your OP isn’t misogynistic?

    Bingo!

    No I'm just highlighting toxic femininity.

    Women aren't perfect there are things they can improve on.

    But yeah this is part of toxic femininity.

    Why can't women just do better? Why can't women hold other women accountable?

    Why can’t every group be better? Because there will always be good and bad.
