Men Reveal One Aspect About Their Lives That Women Know Nothing Of.
Reddit user Keetek asked men to divulge some secrets and facts about their lives that women seem to have no clue about. Following are some of the most insightful and surprising responses.
"Man has never wanted to get up from their show/video games/book to help carry groceries into the house, so he has evolved so that he is able to carry EVERYTHING from the car in one trip."
Reddit user acceptabledegenerate effectively reduces this tendency from being a display of masculine strength and machismo to a clever ploy in order to not be bothered again. Makes sense now!
"Watching your own children playing in the park and being questioned by a random woman what you're doing there."
Slightly alarming confession from Reddit user bbobeckyj. Seriously? Faith in humanity needs to be restored.
"Chest hair is super good for lathering soap"
Here, user AMISHassassin speaks for all the hairy-chested gentlemen who know this to be true. You guys, they don't even need to use a loofah to make it foamy!
"If I'm alone in my room, I'l have my hands in my pants. I don't even have a reason, it's not naughty or dirty in any way, it doesn't even feel good. I just do it."
Another alarming but hilarious confession from Reddit user yousefsquared. How is one supposed to even react to this? Whatever tickles your pickle, I guess.
"There is a nothing box, it does exist, and when I'm driving home from work or watching tv, I'm really genuinely thinking about nothing."
Ladies, how many times have you wondered what the guy is thinking about when he seems to look quite pensive and serious? Well, user coelurosauravus has answered your question. Let's not over think it when they're silent, shall we? It's nothing. Literally.
"Unsticking your balls from the side of your thigh on a hot day. Also the dangers of accidentally crushing them if you sit at a weird angle or shift around in your seat."
Ouch. Hang in there, user bojiggidy.
"How utterly socially alone we are sometimes. Most women seem to have many friends that they could call on in a second to provide deep emotional support.
No guy friend has ever put their arm around me and told me it's going to be ok. I don't know any man I could cry to or just be with if I'm feeling down and desperate.
Sure we can relate, and we can complain to each other. We can go out for a drink and talk and listen to problems and give solid advice and be there for the other guy. It doesn't seem the same as the emotional support I see many women have, it's an incredible gift to be able to let yourself go."
This brutally honest insight by Reddit user tqqp really gets to you.
"If you're a guy who is not old or decrepit, you could be called upon randomly at anytime to carry something heavy.
Also, if you are 6 feet or more, old ladies will ask you to reach stuff for them at the grocery store."
User kstadanko is on to something. Most of us usually do turn to our buff, male counterparts to do the grunt work which is kind of sad.
"If you piss a man off and he says he wants to be alone, he wants to be alone. This is not an opportunity for you to try to break into his isolation sphere and talk."
Great tip for the ladies by user JMFricks!
"The sort of "silent expectation." It's a difficult thing to articulate but it basically boils down to a sense of carrying everyday weight on ones shoulders in the absence of recognition or validation.
As a man you have absolutely no implicit value. With women there is a sense of validation, support, and even celebration surrounding many aspects of your life. Men are not seen as having any sense of valuable identity, beauty, or character. A woman with a career and a college degree is a unique success and glowing individual who is to be celebrated. A man with a career and a degree is only ever "good enough," to meet the expectation enough that you aren't ridiculed or seen ostensibly as a failure. Women with high levels of sexual activity may be called slut behind their backs, but they are also celebrated as being empowered. Promiscuous men are called assholes and considered predatory for expressing their sexuality . Many gorgeous men spend their entire lives without ever being complimented once by anyone other than their mother.
Patriarchal structures give men many societal advantages, but from a social psychological standpoint men tend to live lives devoid of positive reinforcement or celebration of the things they do or represent. If that makes any kind of sense? Not to whine or anything, just an observation"
That moment when Reddit user CloudsTasteGeometric so poignantly highlighted that gender equality requires empowerment of both women AND men along with the systematic breakdown of patriarchy.
"The satisfaction of pissing a skid mark off the side of the toilet"
One word. Eww. Hopefully user mabapma knows how childish this sounds.
"The constant sexual deviancy we must bury deep inside."
Do we even want to know...? Kudos to whoever is bold enough to ask user harpsmurphy.
"It might just be me but I can never tell whether or not I am at least a semi-attractive person. It's like I can look at a few women and know which one I think looks the best but if I look at a few guys (save for exceptionally ugly ones), it's really hard to tell who looks the best. To me they are just dudes and so am I. Hard to know if I'm attractive to women or not and my mind automatically assumes no."
Awww. Could we all just take a moment to tell Reddit user cliffordtaco that he is beautiful in every way?
"Being complimented, for any reason, is weird. Men don't get compliments as frequently as women do. And when we actually are complimented, we believe there might be malice or sarcasm within a compliment where none exist - simply because of the infrequency of it."
Interesting to know that user ViciousKnids requires is suspicious of validation. Points to much deeper insecurities. Shocking, isn't it?
"That immediately following an orgasm we lose virtually all emotion.
It brings crystal clarity in our brain because it is literally the only time in our lives that 95% of our brain power isn't thinking about sex."
Ah. So that explains the seemingly stoic behavior during post-coital moments. Explains it, doesn't justify it. Sorry, user Walker_ID
"Unless you're actively going for it, boners are more of an itch than anything else, and masturbation is the scratch."
Okay then, user spunkyweazle. Thanks for sharing (so much). Good to know! (Not really).
"The weird tangents our minds take if we're not doing anything for a while. It's hard to explain, but sometimes men just need to figure out an optimal strategy for defeating a 250 pound jaguar in a cage match."
Wow. Note sarcastic undertone. However it's still better than the nothing box. Digress away, user MrPaleontologist.
"How extra careful and nice you have to be so you do not scare some people, especially small children and women."
The struggle seems to be all too real for user cutemusclehead.
"If you put an eye tracking camera on the average dude and reviewed the footage of them walking down the street it would be a sea of breasts and butts. I barely know what my own main road looks like because every time I walk down it I'm looking at the ass of the girl walking in front."
No. Not cool, user tqqp! NOT. COOL. SHAME. SHAME. SHAME. SHAME. SHAME.
"Some of us really wouldn't mind if you made the first move."
Did you hear that, ladies? User plap11 has spoken! No more waiting around for the guy to call! Carpe diem!
"The number of times you put up a front and choose not to complain about things, because men aren't supposed to complain."
That moment when Reddit user zygga exposed how gender roles adversely affected men too and we felt nothing but respect for him.
