People Explain Which Behaviors Are Associated With Men But Actually Everyone Does Them

There are things men do that easily annoy the opposite sex, simply by being a guy.

"That's such a dude move," or "typical male," can be examples of snide remarks made following disapproving gender-specific behavior.


But news flash, women are just as capable of committing a "d*ck move."
Curious to hear examples of men not being alone in their irksome idiosyncrasies, Redditor XheriosLucas asked:
"What is something most people think only men do, but actually women do as well?"

Get ready for some misconceptions to be turned completely upside down.

Time For Tootin'

"For years I thought ladies didn’t fart. My mom told me that so it had to be true. It didn’t matter that I was a girl and farted. I thought there was just this magical age where girls turned into ladies and stopped farting."

"Apparently even when my mom did fart, I’d whip my head around and go 'ewwww dad!' Mom found it hilarious, dad not so much. Then one day I was in the bathroom with my mom (cause who trusts a four year old for longer the two minutes by themselves?) and I heard it: The quiet mythical fart from a lady."

"Oh Lordy, I told everyone! Everyone needed to know that ladies do fart, even my mom and she’s a lady! Dad found it hilarious, mom not so much."

Cheeky Adjustment

"The weird side step."

"Sometimes when I wear really short shorts, my butt cheeks start 'eating' my shorts and I have to try my best to make a discreet weird side step to adjust it..."

Assuming The Position

"Keep hand in pants in a non sexual way when just chilling."

– Clafoutie

It's A Pleasure

"I grew up thinking women couldn’t masturbate only men could. In middle school I searched up women masturbating and bro my jaw dropped."

Redditors share their thoughts about men and women keeping up with appearances.

Keep It Smooth

"Shave their face."

– Jewz1986

"I feel like women even keep this a secret from each other until you find out someone else does too or how common it is. Even still most women will rename it as “dermaplaning”. Such stigma around it."

– South-Housing-748

Checking The Fitness Progress

"Flex in the mirror."

– happy-sam1

Just Gross

"Be dirty and lazy."

– ThinkIGotHacked

"I've worked in customer service most of my life, and can easily say that women's restrooms are an absolute nightmare compared men's restrooms 95% of the time. Like seriously, just throw your tampons in the trash, and wipe up your blood please; you've got a whole roll of tp 6 inches from your elbow."

– GenericThomas

Cruising

"Check out women."

– winnisp

"Even straight women check out women. Source: am a straight woman… I think."

– Solid_Explanation769

Just a thought, or may two or three.

Chivalry Is Non-Binary

"I just said this on another thread but, having fantasies about saving people or sacrificing yourself for them."

– Seyorin

Revved Up Without Warning

"Get horny over nothing or randomly."

– False-Stage-3826

Zoning Out

"Seem to be in deep thought but is actually just gaping at a wall with zero thoughts. Alternately, may be thinking of somethings completely random. That meme about the wife thinking the husband is probably thinking if another woman, when in reality he's thinking of something random ? Ya, as a woman, I relate with that husband."

– abookishhuman

Locker Room Talk

"Talk and joke about sex. I can’t speak for everyone, but I find girls talking about it more than guys."

"Heck, at one point we were having a little bonfire, and one couple got up to leave. My friend’s wife asked if they wanted to play Among Us when they got home, and the other girl just turned around and casually said 'Nah, this is usually about the time we have sex.' To which my friend’s wife responds 'Oh yeah, we just did that this morning.'”

– Oldspice0493

The point is, all genders are capable of similar behavior that people have been socialized to exclusively associate with men.

And there's nothing wrong with that.

We are all equally guilty of being a little naughty, regardless of gender. So get over it.

People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.

It's rare for a day to go by where women don't, quite understandably, complain about the annoying, even misogynistic behavior of men.

Addiction to video games, poor hygiene, too much excitement over a football or basketball game, bad table manners.

The list goes on and on.

But men don't only annoy women with their behavior.

Indeed, plenty of other men get equally annoyed or revolted by certain stereotypically "male" behavior, and wish it would come to an end.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
