Alright fellas, we need to talk about some things.
We’re gettin’ called out on Twitter and rightfully so. Don’t take this as a time to get all defensive and rev up for a fight, just listen for a minute, maybe laugh along a bit, and let’s all just try to make the world slightly better, starting with us, eh?
Here are a few things that have been brought to our attention.
13. Decisions, decisions
Don’t get mad at the symptoms before you’ve taken a second to understand the disease.
The same men who decided women were legally the property of their fathers and/or husbands and therefore could not own property or hold bank accounts of their own. 🙃 https://t.co/5Hndu4YKzc

Not everybody needs you to save them. Get that bread.
new movie idea: small town farm boy goes to the big city and falls in love with a hotshot lawyer woman who convinces him to move into the city and start hating christmas

11. Across state lines
Ok but for serious tho.
Gambling is illegal in Hawaii but totally legal in Nevada.
Should Hawaii be able to prosecute Hawaiians who go to Vegas to gamble?
If you answer NO, you are just scratching the surface of the breathtaking unconstitutionality of the Georgia abortion ban

10. It’s fine, period
Honestly guys, grow up. Yeah human bodies are weird as heck but we all got ’em.
Guys that r grossed out about girls getting their periods are lame. I'm sure your mother was praying to get hers but got you instead, tragic

9. “Boys will be boys”
This is a cause I firmly believe in.
“boys will be boys” is supposed to be used when your mom finds you and your homies age 10 putting mayonnaise on the slip n slide instead of water and calling it the miracle whip n slide. it’s NOT supposed to be used to shrug off sexism and rape culture.

8. Oh come on
Learn to find solutions for both of ya’ll.
when guys are like “i’m not gonna be able to cum with a condom on” it’s like, ok, cool. sorry to hear that. i’m probably not gonna be able to cum at all, so i guess we’ll get through this together.

7. Braided together
Don’t pull this on people who work for you, leave them be.
Years ago I was told to take a clip out of my newsreel because I was wearing braids. The news director told me I wouldn’t get a job with braids. I left the clip in and landed a job in the industry. Now, I’m wearing them on-air for the first time. Braids are professional. pic.twitter.com/pqjhpEYI4z

It’s all fun and games until you devastate yourself like this.
Thinking about the time that I said that I was distantly related to Marie Curie and a guy explained “It’s pronounced Mariah Carey”

5. Passing the bar
Are we just belittling for fun?
Conservatives: Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and you can become anything you want.@AOC: *goes from bartender to Congresswoman*
Conservatives: No, not like that.

4. The shame game
men shame women for having a lot of consensual sex more than they shame other men for rape

3. The double standard
All jokes aside it’s really sickening.
Women are told not to post photos that show too much skin because it might limit our future career options.
Men who are rapists are elected to the highest office.

2. Just talking
I dunno man, what were you saying before?
"So basically I just can never talk to women again"
Hey man if that's what you need in order to not be a sexual predator, then yes.

1. Very mature
I never heard either but I get it.
Something I heard a lot growing up: Girls, boys mature more slowly than you. Make allowances for them.
Something I never heard: Boys, girls mature more rapidly than you. Look to them as examples of intelligence and leadership.

There we go. That wasn’t so bad, huh? Now let’s try to be decent people…. if that’s even possible.
What might you add to this list of observations?
