Female online forum users united to share these truly catastrophic comments from the opposite sex.
He Was An Amateur Genealogist
“I have someone who refuses to believe my own place of birth. He wrote a whole book on our family. All of my siblings (and mother) have the same place of birth.
I was born on the other side of the country because my dad was temporarily transferred there. It’s obvious he just guessed at my place of birth and now won’t admit to being wrong.”
“That I only got my period during the full moon. I tried explaining that werewolves and women are different but he insisted for a good twenty minutes, ignoring the fact that I’d been getting my period for years and he still had yet to get his.”
“A guy tried to tell me once that women technically aren’t mammals because, according to him, we lay eggs every month. I kept trying to tell him that just because women have eggs (and so do birds and lizards) does not mean they are the same type of eggs.”
“So I say, why do you believe that millions of women in all parts of the world are just pretending that childbirth hurts? He says, ‘I saw this article and the title was about…’ which I interrupted him to say, ‘You didn’t even read the article? You saw a headline and immediately believed that over the experiences of every woman who has given birth?’”
He Was An Amateur Psychologist
“That me choosing not to want kids is because I have ‘some unresolved childhood trauma’. Like, no jerk, it’s because I DON’T WANT THEM.”
“At an airshow, two guys tried to explain to me that no women were flying military aircraft in WWII and why they didn’t have the right ‘temperament’ to fly those planes. My mom was a pilot in WWII. Oh, what a FUN day that was!”
That’s Catholics For Ya
“I will never forget this incident. In the 9th grade, my high school health studies teacher tried to explain to us how tampons and periods worked. This man looked us dead in the eyes and said, ‘Yes, the cotton will absorb the sin that you bleed, but it will also make you impure, and your future husband will be unsatisfied with you.’”
29 Going On… 30
“Some dude once tried to tell me you’re not an adult until your thirties and he basically grew up in the span of a week. Said something along the lines of he went partying last weekend, but he’s done with that because he’s an adult now.”
“A dude tried to explain how a piece of software worked once. He told me all about the history of the project, that it was his idea, and why specific decisions were made about it. He made me prove it when I told him I wrote the software. When I proved it, he still maintained that I was wrong. It was honestly such a weird thing to lie about.”
We Have Rabbit Butts. Apparently
“[My] ex argued women poop in pellets like rabbits and there was no way we could poop any other way. We were too delicate for it to be ‘like men’.”
I Am The Producer
“I was getting on-camera releases from the other crew. One of the camera operators refused to sign, telling me he was part of the actor’s union and he wouldn’t sign without his agent.
So I announced to my crew to avoid filming him. He then said: ‘Next time, the right response would be to go get your producer and have him handle it.’
I looked him dead in the eye and said ‘I am the producer’ and did it feel good to see him go white as a ghost!”
My Name… My Own Freakin Name
“So we are Americans, my married last name came from Poland, and I pronounce it like my husband’s family does (Americanized). My coworker thinks he is Polish (3-4 generations removed) and doesn’t like how I say it.”
Grapes of Wrath
“I work at a winery in the summers, and I’m never without some dude trying to explain the difference between X and Y grapes or how to pronounce words, stuff like that. Buddy, I work here. You’re pronouncing Meritage wrong.”
“My friend’s (now ex) bf tried to convince me that I was a black person (I’m brown). I thought these were one of his stupid jokes. Not only was he being serious, but my friend joined in, and both went on to try and convince me that I didn’t know my own skin color.”
He Was An Amateur Travel Agent
“He asked me where I was from, and I said New Zealand. He started explaining to me that New Zealand was in Europe, next to Britain.” I think he was describing Ireland. Not sure how someone confuses those two…”
“I love my dad, and this story isn’t even that bad. When I was a kid and teenager, I had fairly long curly hair (3A) that got frizzy/messy easily. My dad’s solution to this was ‘just brush it’.”
Viva La Vulva
“A man on Twitter tried to mansplain to Dr. Jen Gunter (a gynecologist) what a vulva was. Despite literally hundreds of people telling him he was wrong, he refused to back down. He was some English professor and therefore knew more than a woman who spends her days looking at vulvas.”
“Before a trip to London, my dad needed to exchange cash for euros. I told him we’d actually need pounds, but he was adamant about how the UK was a part of the EU, therefore, it used Euros.
I minored in economics as an undergrad and was in the middle of getting my master’s in international affairs. Our visit to the currency exchange was fun.”
