Most men are seriously wrong about vaginas, the far-reaching interests and motivations of women, and what is involved with CARRYING A HUMAN BEING INSIDE YOUR BODY.

I am not a woman. I cannot fully empathize with how frustrating men mansplaining women to women must be.

But I can read this reddit thread and at least understand on an intellectual level. It's also pretty hilarious to hear just how far reaching men's ignorance can be.


Reddit user xClovis7 asked:

Women of reddit, what myth about women is 100% untrue and infuriates you when you hear it?

Best learn what's going on down there

"We pee with our vagina." Exiode

"That the more sex you have, the looser your vajayjay gets."- kevnmartin


"That the clitoris is hard to find."

"Or that labia grow exponentially with lots if sex."

"Or that vaginas are anything but elastic."

"Basically every ridiculous myth about female sexuality and their genitals."- fck-rffld

Work from home is still work

"Maternity leave is basically vacation."

"If you've ever experienced the exhaustion of carrying a child and the intense body changes that occur during and after delivery, you'll find out that maternity leave is necessary for recovery and is not a vacation."

"Try working with a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th degree tear while now trying to deal with a baby that needs to feed every 2-3 hours."- pinkblossom331

Ladies like coins and random crap too!

"That we don't need pockets in our fu**ing clothes."- Minemose

Girls just wanna chill

"All women want/need children."- Proper-Atmosphere

"That as little girls we all dreamt about our future wedding. Not all women want to get married or actually enjoying attending weddings"- Smurff833

Some people just suck

"That because you don't like another woman it's only because you're jealous."

"Listen, I can hate a woman because of something she did or said and in no fu**ing way be jealous of her."

"She may be just dumb"- Mishy-P

Yeah not how that works

"That we can just 'hold' our periods."

"Do you honestly think we would still need feminine products if we could do that?"- tanya6k

"Stuff about our periods in general."

"Like if we're mad, it's definitely because we're on our period."

"We never have a legitimate reason to be upset."

"Also myths like we're able to hold in our period or we only have it for a day or that we're impure."

"The impure one definitely infuriates me."

"I just think about the billions of women throughout history, and sometimes even today, being treated as if they're impure or an evil omen because of a bodily function they cannot control."

"Banishing them to menstrual huts when they have their periods or not allowing them to touch anything."

"And yes, this happens."

"My mother as a teenager was not allowed to touch anything when she had her period."

"It got to the point where she would just not tell anyone she was menstruating and do what she wanted."-lady_laughs_too_much

You also don't like crowds and spending all your money?!

"That we all love shopping. I fucking HATE shopping."-SaltyDoggoMeo

Double Standards

"That all of us secretly hate each other and are innately gossipy and b*tchy."

"Some dipsh*t on here tried telling me once that he knew all women resented each other because he knew the 'nature of women'."

"That old saying 'men insult their friends but don't mean it and women compliment their friends but don't mean it' paints women as catty/unable to have genuine friendships, which is BS."- AristaUndertaken

"That women are irrational because of their hormones."

"The irony is that some men make excuses for their behavior because testosterone apparently makes them unable to control themselves."- faded_watercolours

Not about you

"That if I am dressed nice I want attention."

"Nope. I just chose to look nice today."- LevelHeadedPsycho2

Soooo much more to discuss

"My favorite stereotypes of women I hear is the idea of how we interact with each other when we're in groups. "

"90% of my conversations with half of my friends revolve around the latest video games and horror movies coming out."

"Occasionally we'll talk about emotions, relationships, or clothes and make up, but we would both be bored if that was all we talked about."

"I also know of about 1 person who greets me with 'hey girl!'

"I refer to both gender friends as dude."

"Not that any of that is bad, I just find it hilarious when people assume women get all squeally and affectionate or close and gossipy when they spend time together."

"Our friendships are just as unique and varied."

"Doesn't so much make me mad when people assume I'll act that way with my friends as it makes me laugh and pity their ignorance.- TeReese1006

Yes You Are!

"I went to preschool in a church."

"My teacher told us the story of Adam and Eve."

"At the end she said us, 'this is the reason god made women afraid of snakes'."

"Several girls spoke up and said they weren't afraid of snakes."

"I don't remember what my teachers exact response was but I remember she was really annoyed."- EmmaRose49270

My Mom, For Example, Sounds Like a Weed Wacker

"That women don't snore, seriously, I've heard this loads and it always baffles me."

"People breathe when they sleep, sometimes it makes some noise, male or female. Let em breathe."- JARlaah

Poor Sports

"That females are not good at video games."

"Or that they have a male friend who is boosting them to their current rank, if it's higher than theirs."

"And then when they find out you're actually better than them they try to deny it."

"It's so annoying to go in a lobby with random people and it's filled with guys who belittle you or talk down to you because you're a female."- Meowmehpls

A Classic

"That we are bad drivers. I have had my first car for 3 years."

"I'm in my early 20's."

"I have never crashed, but have had two men crash into me from behind."

"Both times I had to fight tooth and nail to the officers to believe me."

"Both times the blame was given to me, even when the crashes were from behind and back side, merge lane and red light, The cops' reason? 'well, unfortunately ma'am, I have to put the blame on you since you are a fairly new driver'."

"Drive safer next time/ You should always keep distance while in the merge lane even if he was behind you'."-teachmehowtodookie

Hymen to That

"Not a girl, but i always found it sad to see articles where rape cases are shut down because she has an intact hymen."

"The hymen doesn't break the first time you have sex, but it can if you are too rough with it."

"Hell, horseback riding and tampons can break it."

"And it won't always bleed the first time, it may break, or it might not, both are perfectly normal."- Thritzer

Have Both

"This was mentioned several times in high school: 'women give sex to get love and men give love to get sex' which I think is as insulting to men as it is to women."- butdoesithavestars

Nobody Wants to See You That Much

"That we all hate when our significant other is going to hangout with friends & we expect them to be with us 24/7?"- totesmagotes69

It's what's on the inside that counts.

"Even though I'm male, but here are 2 myths that I know and feel sick when hearing them:"

"If the woman is too ugly, she's very rude."

"If the woman is very beautiful, she's a cheater or a gold digger."

"But really, most people don't understand that beauty doesn't affect any person's character at all, expect for insults."

"Trust me, you don't need to find a normal woman just because 'she's trustful', but in reality, she's going to break up with you when you reach debt, and also, some ugly-like women are actually people that need help, and they may be really funny and interesting woman."- CyLove13

Who are YOU calling emotional

"We're too emotional."

"See: Donald Trump."

"That man throws a hissy fit every ten seconds, but nobody accuses him of being too emotional."

'Meanwhile when I have some creepo following me home so I go buy pepper spray and a stun gun, I'm 'overreacting'."- Sm0ltowngrill

An underappreciated art form

"If you do pole dancing, you're a whore."

"Just because a woman enjoys this sport, doesn't mean she'd bone your mediocre a**."

"Also, how these same sh*theads never acknowledge how difficult it actually is."

"The bruises, the cramps, falling, potential serious injuries."

"It's not just pretty twirls."

"I know that in the grand scheme of misogyny this is a drop in a lake-sized bucket, but it gets to me."- OwnGap

Just one?

"I have 3."

"Women are naturally caring and kind, when I met a lot of bitches in my life who showed zero support and I swore it felt like I was dating a guy but then felt cache since i know a lot of caring and gentle guys."

"Sex education was an odd example of every time you have sex its like the last person leaves residue inside of you.'

"An example was she put a drop of dye in the bowl and showed it on the projector then added more."

"It messed me up because I felt some people were gross and I was a jerk to them."

"Sure its way better if your partner doesn't have a f*ck ton of past sexual partners since experience really differs with each person for what they like in the bedroom and for that one person mostly but I felt like a jerk because I thought it was gross and told a few that."

"lol."

"Kind of related to 2 but whatever, that women need a lot of partners to be good at sex."

"Like naw each person is different and its not that hard to figure out basic anatomy."- digitalpro95

"Well, what you add to the list? "

"Let us know know in the comments?"

People Share The Biggest Bachelor Party Or Wedding Day Disasters They've Ever Seen

Weddings, and the festivities leading up to them, are a major milestone in many people's lives. The sheer stress and effort that go into planning a wedding are usually enough to make people realize they should try hard not to screw things up.

Sometimes that isn't the case though, and when things go wrong they often go very, very wrong.

Our parents should be able––and willing––to protect us and to fight for our best interests. But that's not always the case, and the unlucky ones can spend years seeking mental health counseling to figure out what went wrong.

Our parents are human and they have the ability to disappoint us and devastate us like anyone else. It just hurts a little more, as we were reminded once Redditor banbidoe asked the online community,

"What's the worst thing your parents ever said to you?"

Cashiers Break Down Which Items Cause Them To Silently Judge Customers

It's human nature to have various opinions about the people we come across.

What sets us apart from heathens is that we keep our judgments to ourselves–especially when they are not of the flattering variety.

The people who probably interact with strangers the most are those who work in any type of service industry, and they should be good about keeping their mouths shut if they don't have anything nice to say about a customer or of their purchases.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.
