We all have things we wish people would stop doing, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to start. A netizen recently asked women, what’s something specific that you wish men would stop doing? The responses ahead made the most sense to us.
Trying To Touch With Dirty Hands
“Try to touch me with dirty hands. Go clean your talons first.” Said one.
“I’ll never forget the night my husband came home from *bowling* and immediately tried initiating intimacy (usually fine, but) with his nasty bowling fingers going down my pants. Sir if you don’t get your bacteria-glowing fingers away from me.” Another added.
Keep On Flirting Even If She Says She’s A Lesbian
“If a woman tells you she’s a lesbian when you’re flirting, it means one of two things:
– 1: She is a lesbian.
– 2: She is pretending to be a lesbian so you’ll stop flirting with her.
Either way, you should stop flirting.” Said one.
“And never tell her you’ll “make her straight”, that’s threatening.” Another added.
Sending Pics To Random Women Online
“Please stop sending those pics to random women online. It’s just straight-up creepy and gross. If a woman wants to see your thing, she’ll ask for a picture.”
Threatening Harm To Women Who Reject Them
“Harming or threatening harm to women who reject them.” Said one.
“Stalkers, spouses, siblings, parents. Unfortunately, we don’t need to leave home to be in danger often enough.” Another added.
Being Mean To Girls They Find Unattractive
“Being mean to girls they find unattractive.” Said one.
“I remember when I was in the army living in the barracks, PR, and work was like 2 miles away. It was pouring rain, and someone told me this one guy would give me a ride. I waited with my friend who had told me. There was room. He gave her a ride and not me and laughed as I walked in the pouring rain. I didn’t have a car at the time. Found out he wanted to sleep with her, and that was why. Over a decade later, I don’t trust a lot of guys because of that.” Another added.
Taking Inspiration From Adult Movies
“Thinking that what the guys in movies do is what we want.” Said one.
“Omg, yes. 99.9% of those movies are just their thing’s worship. Regular, healthy intimacy doesn’t work like that.” Another added.
Touching While Getting Past Women
“When you need to get past me, please don’t put your hands on my waist/hips/lower back to move me aside. I don’t know you. Stop touching me.” Said one.
“Don’t grab women around their waist, hips or back unless you know them and they’re okay with it. If you have to, as you say, never use your hands and never be assertive. Slide by. Tap on the shoulder. NEVER just touch a woman like you’re simply ALLOWED to.” Another added.
Trying To Make Women Smile Unnecessarily
“Just because a woman is not smiling, it is not your job to change that.” Said one.
“I told a guy friend this. He would say “What’s wrong” when I was reading or just sitting around. I finally said who sits around smiling all the time? Just because I’m not smiling doesn’t mean I’m in a bad mood. I’ll let you know if something is wrong.” Another added.
“Then have the audacity to say “I bet it feels good” it feels like a disappointment.” Another added.
Expecting A Honking Sound While Pressing Breasts
“An advice to all men, breasts don’t make a honking sound when pressed…What a disappointment.” Said one.
“OMG, my husband does this. I actually hate it. It’s stupid and juvenile and a turnoff. Sadly, he doesn’t get it.” Another added.
Looking For Reasons When A Woman Says “No”
“No is a complete sentence. What I meant is, if you are in a relationship with a guy, no would be a short, perhaps cold answer, but I don’t think that’s what OP meant.
I meant it as, if a guy bothers you for any reason, like he wants your phone number or any socials you don’t want to give him, you don’t need to provide a reason, because a simple no should be enough. Unfortunately, a lot of men (yes I know, not all) won’t take just a no for an answer and *must* know the reason, because whatever.
So, to answer the original question: I wish some guys would just accept a simple no and would stop asking again and again and again for something that has already been answered with a no.”
Not Washing Buttocks When Taking A Shower
“Please. God. Some men don’t wash their butts when they shower. Because it feels “gay”
Stop worrying so much about being a macho manly man. Being secure in your manhood is way hotter. Go wash your butt.
Confusing “Expressing Emotions” With “Violent Outbursts”
“Confusing “expressing your emotions” with angry violent outbursts.” Said one.
“This is what happens when boys are raised to not show emotion, it all gets bottled up, and when their mask slips it’s when they’re frustrated and angry and they don’t know how to reign it in.” Another added.
Not Washing Hands After Peeing
“Wash your hands after you pee. It’s disgusting how many men don’t do this.” Said one.
“Went to a guy’s house once. When I used his bathroom, I couldn’t find any soap to wash my hands. He just straight-up didn’t have soap in the bathroom. It’s so nasty.” Another added.
Thinking That Being A Woman Is A Reason For Her Mistakes
“Thinking that being a woman is a reason for her mistakes.
I was one of the only three girls in the engineering course (60 people). And if I did a mistake in class it was because I was a girl. But if my male coursemate made a mistake, it is only because humans are not perfect, and next time he will do better.”
