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.'”

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.

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
