Maxim 100 things you need to know about women...

Maxim online have come up with one hundred things men need to know about women... I've picked out a few...

Number 87: "Your female co-workers are obsessed with the fact that on average they receive less pay than male counterparts--and the fact that they work less overtime and get pregnant is irrelevant to the discussion"

Oh pardon us for 'getting' pregnant and having to care for our children, while you guys do 'constructive overtime' coming up with 100 things men should know about women...

Number 84: "Sixteen percent of American men have been with a prostitute—scientific proof most women are decent in bed"

So men have sex with prostitutes cos some women are shit in bed..? Maybe they can't be bothered to have sex with nobs like you cos they prefer a night in with their vibrator..? Oh wait...that would make it more than 16%...

Number 62: "A British study claims a woman’s chances of getting married drop by 40 percent for every 16-point rise in her IQ. The same increase in IQ for a man boosted his chances of getting married by 35 percent"

So what you are saying is that the greater IQ a woman has, the more likely she is to realise that marriage aint all that it's cracked up to be..?

Number 49: "They dream of one day peeing in a urinal"

Umm...are you aware of the female anatomy..?

Number 37: "Women's public bathrooms are about three times more disgusting than men's"

I 'd love to know how they worked this one out... Try this one out: walk into the ladies toliets...then walk into the gents, and note the wretch in your stomach as the vomit rises in your throat from the stench of urinals...

Number 32: "Girls will not sit on any toilet outside their own home or a five-star hotel. Everywhere else they’re hovering above the toilet in a squat"

Umm...not true.

Number 27: "Gain her trust when you’re out by calling her at 10 P.M. She’ll go to bed content you’re thinking of her, even if you’re slurping Jell-O shots off some skank’s cleavage"

So I take it you guys are all single..?

    101) Women can't spot an obvious joke in a lad's magazine?

    Misogyny isn't a joke.

    No, misogony is not a joke. At least, it shouldn't be.

    1. You'll probably never know how many guys she's slept with. The standard lie is five. Which really means about 12.

    "Oh pardon us for 'getting' pregnant and having to care for our children, while you guys do 'constructive overtime' coming up with 100 things men should know about women..."

    that has to be the worst argument i have ever read..did you even read the statement, women getting pregnant and not working over-time are reasons why they get payed less, getting pregnant isnt a fault, its a choice, when women get pregnant they sometimes give up their job, or reduce their workload, hence reducing their pay. the whole statement is based around saying that there are other factors to consider other then just "oh, the only reason women get payed less is coz guys are jerks". and the last part of your argument is just lame, the type of stuff most people roll their eyes at, seriously, think about it, the only guys who are going to work over time are the ones who are actually smart enough to have something constructive to do.

    number 84..
    ur argument has no proof whatsoever, if the whole female population was as narrow minded as you then yes your statement would be true, but seeing as not everyone has to think like you (thank god) the majority of women arent discriminatory against males.

    number 62..
    eye rolling time again, this argument is nearly as narrow minded as the first. can you think in more then one dimension? do the opinions you are going to consider have to be based around "all men are bad" and "all women are unfairly treated because men are bad". you obviously dont believe in love, you think the world would be much better off without relationships. i think id rather be mistreated then not be able to love.

    number 49..
    lighten up! as if any guy is going to take that seriously, as if anyone would take that seriously...except for you.

    number 37..
    lol, im not going to disagree with that one, again its not meant to be taken seriously.

    number 32..
    yep, i'll take your word for that one, again you're the only person who would take that seriously.

    number 27...
    any guy who would go to a party where there is temptations is a jerk, i agree with your comment but thats if i was going to take the statement seriously, the whole thing isnt serious, seriously, if you were going to be serious about every joke made (which you seriously are) you're seriousness would remain the same for the amount of non-serious seriously discriminatory jokes made by seriously serious people like yourself....seriously

    The tone of the Maxim article makes out that women's unequal pay is a frivolous issue.

    Most of what you have said is rubbish and I can't be bothered to go into detail as it is obvious...

    I will say once again, women's inequality and misogyny shouldn't be the butt of jokes...

  • At Tuesday, 25 July, 2006, Anonymous cloud said…

    3 other guys and girls that i have spoken to about the unequal pay comment also say that the comment is made funny because it takes into account a less obvious reason for the rate of pay. its message is not that misogyny is funny, but that there are more reasons then what you would normally hear.

    about your last comment..learn to laugh, if you havent noticed most of the comments are so ludicrous that no one would see it as misogyny, rather they would take it as guys stupidity. And there are in fact jokes about males (even though its the 100 things to know about women), you mentioned one "Gain her trust when you’re out by calling her at 10 P.M. She’ll go to bed content you’re thinking of her, even if you’re slurping Jell-O shots off some skank’s cleavage"...that statement is basically saying that guys are selfish, cheating bastards, yet im not complaining because i know that is too stupid to be taken seriously.
