And they say women have no humour😀

[–]ianslutFDS Newbie282 points283 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

The LVM who say women aren't funny are the same men to think rape jokes are peak comedy 😃

[–]CescaTheG78 points79 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This!!! You can hear it in their tone. I find this stereotype angers me more than any other. The men who assume all women aren’t funny are the ones who just can’t comprehend another humans point of view and they don’t understand maybe something they don’t experience is actually amusing to people who aren’t them.

[–]hopewingsFDS Newbie401 points402 points  (37 children) | Copy Link

I have way more fun and laughs with women around than with a group of all men. Women are amazingly funny.

Most jokes have a bit of mean-spiritedness in them. Historically it has also been dangerous for women to make fun of men, but those are some of the best jokes.

Unfortunately, research shows that women may actually be harmed by using humor at work.

We can't win, so might as well have some laughs in our own space.

It took me a while to realize a lot of men's humor in hs/college was basically shit they stole from movies and standup. They all end up having the same "brand" of funny and once you realize that it's formulaic the funny drops dead. Not to generalize, but at least most women I know don't watch as much standup so their humor comes from their personal experiences + wit and it's much more fresh and funny to me.

[–]SoybeanApocalypseFDS Newbie5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

My old group of lvm friends were all on imgur and just quoted shit they saw on the front page all the time. 🤦‍♀️

[–]CarmelPeachFDS Newbie4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I agree with this so hard, even my bf falls into this a lot lol

[–]SewudFDS Apprentice92 points93 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

This is fascinating. I suspect that funny women are not as appreciated as funny men in general. Not that women are less funny, but people don't like it when women are funny. People said the woman's jokes were in poor taste and were a cover up for incompetence even though she said the same jokes as the man. That's fascinating.

[–]hopewingsFDS Newbie51 points52 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Women get worse treatment for doing the same thing that a man does. See this infographic about the double standard for women in leadership:

[–]nomadzebraFDS Newbie15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

There's a series called 100 humans and one of the episodes compares women and men and part of it is about who's funniest, it's worth a watch. Netflix

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Watch Aisling Bea. I think she is a fantastic comedian because she can appeal to both men and women’s sense of humor. At least in my husband and I’s experience

[–]tossed_salad100180 points181 points  (26 children) | Copy Link

Women are WAY funnier than men in real life on average in my experience. I have a whole conspiracy theory about why female standups are so remarkably unfunny compared to their male counterparts.

[–]MrAndMrsCremgroblinPickmeisha™️54 points55 points  (20 children) | Copy Link

What’s the theory?

[–]tossed_salad100124 points125 points  (18 children) | Copy Link

I think that Hollywood specifically encourages unfunny female standups and pushes them to succeed in spite of their lack of talent. The result of this is that very few people watch or like these female standups, and it creates a narrative that "women aren't funny." Then you get two camps of people—those who are "feminist" and feel that they have to support these terrible standups even though they aren't funny, and those who use it as an excuse to dog on women. This supports a "divide and conquer" approach to society, making us easier to control by the elites and politicians. It's just a cog in the machine of cultural Marxism.

All right, time to take off my tinfoil hat.

[–]SearchLightsIncFDS Newbie40 points41 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

Have you not seen Michelle wolf's Whitehouse press dinner speech?? I haven't laughed so hard and long! She nailed it so well the next year they REFUSED to have a comedian attend 😂👑

One name: Ally Wong!!!

[–]SomethinDifferentialFDS Newbie8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Are you saying she is funny or not? I don’t think she is that funny... 😕

[–]poison_snaccFDS Newbie18 points19 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I don’t, either. Her jokes about preferring anal sex after being “stretched out from childbirth” didn’t sit well with me. I mean, to each their own, but, for me, a lot of her humor has a very Pickmeisha vibe.

[–]StrainingMyNeuronsFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh, I love her! I like that she’s a real tough cookie, she talks a lot about relationships that I think are in line with FDS, all the while looking stunning.

[–]AstroQueen884 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh man a lot of this has aged so well.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ireland Baldwin’s roast of her dad is probably the funniest thing I’ve seen this year.

[–]twofatdogs47 points48 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Did you hear about Joe Rogan's friend who wouldn't let women perform a comedy set without giving him a blowjob? I think the reality of the situation is that stand-up is a highly competitive industry which tends to attract people who have mental health issues & personality disorders. On top of that women have to deal with some shitty men sexually-harassing them. At the end of the day, you end up with the women who can tolerate the toxic shit-storm that is stand-up comedy.

Imagine if men were coerced into sexual favours by other men in order to get visibility or an opportunity in their industry 😳

Inconceivable right ?

Welp, it’s just navigating life as a woman - part of our experience

Lucky us, huh 😒 /s

[–]MomcellaFDS Newbie7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I heard him mention it a few months ago (it looked like an old podcast), now I can't stand the sight of him even more. On occassion, I'd listen to JR, depending on his guest. After watching him laugh about it, I rarely watch anymore, I can't put it out of my mind.

[–]smilodon91Throwaway Account5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

JR is repulsive to look at.

[–]sekhmetwisdomThrowaway Account1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I know right, a dusty short chubby balheaded crooked face buffoon lookin snot

[–]romantickittyFDS Newbie6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I watch a fair amount of stand up and I think there are plenty of funny female standups. It's just that most of them can't get traction and either become writers or actors or now podcast hosts or they labor in obscurity or give up entirely.

[–]smilodon91Throwaway Account9 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I think the entertainment industry likes and promotes women comics who adopt typical male comic humour; i.e. cursing, vulgarity, bodily functions, ethnic put-downs, etc. instead of women comics with a more sophisticated sense of humour. I tried to watch Amy Schumer do standup one time, and could only take 5 minutes. It was all about her privates and not funny at all.

[–]dollymyfollyFDS Newbie402 points403 points  (10 children) | Copy Link

“My dear”, gag. I hate how it’s being used as a micro aggression.

[–]Cessacolypse24 points25 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

Can you explain this? I genuinely don’t know and I want to learn why it’s a micro aggression

[–]dollymyfollyFDS Newbie92 points93 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

It’s being used in a patronizing and condescending way to imply she’s stupid, not because she is actually dear to him.

[–]Platipus6FDS Apprentice85 points86 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

"My" is possessive

"Dear" is patriarchal, condescending and hierarchical.

He's announced he believes he's superior and you're his silly little possession. What a knob lol.

[–]avakadavaFDS Newbie28 points29 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Time to uno reverse the "dear" on guys

[–]Gravidsalt4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Went completely over the head of that mansplainer. 🙄😆🤣

[–]littleredpartydress_FDS Newbie199 points200 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

“ my dear” 🤮🤮🤮

[–]CB4lifeFDS Newbie55 points56 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Slightly off topic but I’m watching the newest season of amazing race and in the first challenge they had to learn how to play a drum and these two guys just kept calling their instructor beautiful, made several comments, it was just so annoying and cringey. This lady was just trying to help them. No one else did this, they were all appreciative of the help, but the other 10 teams were thankful but not creepy. Anyway... they got eliminated so I’m glad I don’t have to witness how they would keep treating all the women they came in contact with for the rest of the show 😂.

[–]littleredpartydress_FDS Newbie52 points53 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Eewwww I hate when men can’t help but common on woman’s appearances for good or for bad. Especially in super irrelevant circumstances. Like shut up it’s so embarassing honestly.

[–]SpaceC4seFDS Newbie19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Sometimes I just wish men were subject to the same treatment as women for one day. So they would know how it felt. But I don't want to sink to their level

[–]miss_tokieFDS Newbie5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I asked my ex to please refer to me by my name but he STILL calls me 'babe', 'beautiful', and the worst imo 'sexy mama'. Makes me shudder.

[–]AlextheAnalystPickmeisha™️3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

sexy mama

Lmao, was your ex Johnny Bravo?

[–]CatsOnTheLaptopAgainFDS Newbie104 points105 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

[–]nightsky11240 points41 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

I will never forget the time during first days of college when this guy in my music class tried to mansplain to me how to play the guitar telling me how chords work and where to place my fingers etc. mind you this guys a drummer. I asked him how long he'd been playing guitar and to my shock he just casually goes "oh only a couple of years, you?" I proceed to tell him that Ive been playing since I was 5 and that im also classically trained. The way he quickly opted to go to the bathroom after that was hilarious, never approached me again after that day.

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I like to mansplain to men at work. It's hilarious how worked up some of them get.

[–]orangechickengeneralFDS Newbie13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Do tell! Any recent examples?

[–]DaisyDooDropsFDS Newbie58 points59 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Unfortunately, I did this all throughout high school and was treated and labeled as an “air head” by the people around me, and it was pretty much impossible for people to take me seriously. We can never win I suppose.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie17 points18 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Same. Lol. After school a gf had to explain to someone why she was hanging out with me "but isn't she like really dumb?" My mate was like "lol no. You just weren't worth her time so that's the persona you were served" 🤣🤣🤣

[–]DatonecatladyuknoFDS Apprentice72 points73 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

[–]fuckwithawitch22 points23 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

[–]4everdoeFDS Newbie110 points111 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Mansplaining is so important to them. They actually think we need help understanding these things.

[–]EasymodelifeFDS Newbie40 points41 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I don't think mansplainers give a moment's consideration to whether we need or want their help understanding things. It's all about placating their fragile egos - "Listen to ME, aren't you impressed by MY VALUABLE INSIGHTS as a man?" They seem oblivious to how off-putting it is, probably because women are socialised to be polite and receptive. We should make less of an effort to hide how we feel when they do this.

[–]Aina98FDS Newbie81 points82 points  (12 children) | Copy Link

I'm finishing my undergraduate in Psychology. I've been to multiple psychologists and psychiatrists. My dad's a doctor. One day this guy I was talking to goes, "So my friend was prescribed some pills. But only psychiatrists can do that. I don't know if you know the difference between psychologists and psychiatrists". I laughed and said "of course I do, I'm finishing my psych degree and I go to the psychiatrist" and he was like "oh". (Context: I'd told him this before, I guess he forgot amidst the mansplaining.) Internally I was like, oh no, please go on, explain to me the differences in the profession given you have a background in BEING IN THE MILITARY. Lord Jesus have mercy on us all.

[–]StrainingMyNeuronsFDS Newbie33 points34 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

I had a manual labourer fRiEnD getting into a long mansplaining marathon about the area of my expertise that I have two degrees in. He even said, quite earnestly, that “I should educate myself”, at which point I laughed and I said: “remember, I get paid to talk about that and spent 5 years in universities studying it”. He was unphased, and said that universities are really limited in providing “true” information and that I should educate myself on YouTube 🤣🤣🤣

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Ugh!!! This annoys me so much! The amount of people in general who they they’re just as educated on a topic and know just as much as someone who holds a multiple degrees in that topic annoys me so much! Yes- universities aren’t the only place to get an education, and you don’t need a degree to have an opinion or some good understanding of something, but reading pop culture articles, a Netflix documentary and a handful of YouTube video is not the equivalent of 6+ years of formal education! I also find these kinds of people (usually guys) so arrogant in their views!

[–]StrainingMyNeuronsFDS Newbie6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

You’d be very unlikely to hear that kind of tosh from women. It’s fine to hold an opinion of any kind, but the arrogance to tell someone who specialises in that area to “educate themselves of YouTube” is probably exclusively a male thing.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

Lol! Let me guess, y'all are in the US?

[–]StrainingMyNeuronsFDS Newbie1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Nah, the opposite side of the world, but the said friend turns out to be a massive follower of US-based conspiracy theory nutcases.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Ahh that makes sense 🤣

[–]thinktwiceorelseFDS Newbie57 points58 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I once trolled my ex bf that I thought a hand blender was a curling iron when we were shopping. Of course he started explaining lmao.

[–]LueclesteFDS Newbie115 points116 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

One time I was in town, grabbing something, was with a gay male friend.

You know those annoying sales people, who harass you to sell you stuff? There was this one, he was really pushy and annoying. So I decided to bite.

Turns out, he was trying to sell a credit debit card. This was before these were really widespread, so I pretended not to understand. How can it be a credit card, if you use your own money? A credit card is loan money you pay back. If there’s no credit, isn’t it just a debit card?

This went around in circles a few times, the guy was getting really frustrated, and eventually, my friend grabbed my arm, and pulled me away. “I’ll explain it to her!”

We get around the corner, and he just says “God damn. That was hilarious! Darling don’t ever change”.

See, I’m often oblivious to body language, tone of voice, etc., except when I’m not. I’m possibly autistic.

Turns out the guy looked like he was about to scream or hit me. My friend nearly collapsed from trying not to laugh. He had to get me away from the guy before one of those happened.

So yes, can confirm. And it’s hilarious.

Also, selling guy explained it really badly. But he stopped being pushy.

[–]xyzedb_FDS Newbie3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Yes but don’t you think that just perpetuates the idea he already has that women are dumb and need things explained to them? So it’s not really helping us is it. But either way I’m sure that was funny

[–]LueclesteFDS Newbie2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Honestly, if you spend 15 minutes with someone going in circles, you should have had an inkling at some point lol.

[–]themintmittenFDS Newbie44 points45 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

One time my ex tried to mansplain to me how teaching was easy. “You just give them the information and thats it”

I almost smacked him and I snapped at him so hard he never dared to say something like that to me again.

[–]RabidWenchFDS Apprentice17 points18 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Jesus christ on a pogo... let me just slip that tidbit to my poor dyslexic (Mensa member) brother and my gifted/talented sons who have the attention span of goldfish.... I would like to know more about how education is one size fits all. 🙄

[–]themintmittenFDS Newbie10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I KNOW! Teaching entails adjusting to all types of learners! And most learners don’t learn well from direct instruction in that form of just “telling them the info”.

I honestly should’ve broken up with him after that bc he clearly didn’t respect my job. Just cuz hes a pharmacist he thinks he knows everything.

[–]electroloopFDS STRATEGY COACH82 points83 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

I absolutely do this, I think it’s part of the “dumb fox” strategy. I’ve pretended not to know how to do things to get out of doing them for demanding LVM ex’s.

Most notable favourites:

1) pretended I didn’t know how to cut an onion so he would stop asking me to help him with his terrible cooking. 2) pretended I didn’t know how to do something with my phone to see how far he would snoop in it

He legitimately thought I was stupid and it was quite hilarious to see how infuriated he would get. I was testing him to see if he was empathetic and patient, two qualities he severely lacked.

[–]avakadavaFDS Newbie10 points11 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I think men purposefully do 1) with chores to avoid getting out of doing them

[–]electroloopFDS STRATEGY COACH3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Oh 100%. They want to be babied and coddled, get outta here with that noise.

Also a scrote messaged me angrily after seeing my original comment saying I’m going to be alone forever and that I’m probably actually stupid. Scrotes mad.

[–]vietnamese-bitchFDS Apprentice12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

64 seen comments but a total of 107 lol. Stay mad, scrotes! 🤣

[–]ceilingkatwatchesusFDS Disciple12 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I always unconsciously go into scarastic asshole mode. I start being over the top by saying, "Wow, gee golly tell me more sensei." And "omg, how do you know all of these things, oh great one." Of course, they get it and get annoyed which is the whole point. I basically mirror them and they get mad about it and it's just hilarious for me. They immediately stop that shit once they see my eyes get all starry eyed big. Aaahahahahahahah

[–][deleted] 45 points46 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Lol I love doing this

[–]AotearoaCanuckFDS Disciple11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Omg I did this one time to a creep on tinder who was hinting that he liked wearing diapers. It was so much fun to mess with him.

[–]ThattonerthoFDS Newbie10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

At work I use men who think women are stupid to my advantage. Sorry sir I'm too dumb to move this heavy object over there can you please do it for me? It works, sadly, every single time. But hey, if they're going to think I'm dumb anyway I might as well have them do the heavy lifting. They even get to feel manly or whatever I guess.

A guy I was dating was in a pool with me one day and I asked him what swim strokes he knew how to do and whether he had ever had formal swim lessons. He begins to answer with the chest stroke and then goes on to explain its education. I began boiling internally and snapped at him “I know. I was a lifeguard, remember? And I was in the Marine Corps” and he was like “oh...well I don’t know how much you learn about swimming in lifeguard training”. One time when I asked the guy to grab a butter knife for me, he was like “these aren’t butter knives”. Dude was apparently trying to figure out what the opposite of an aphrodisiac by getting technical and showing off his knowledge about cutlery at one of the stupidest times. If I want a butter knife, just grab the one that is closest to what you think I want - no need to try to turn it into a learning opportunity. Better yet, just don’t.

A couple of my male friends also are plagued by mansplaining at times. When I vent to one, he’ll start to talk about my problem as if he were in my shoes and I told him it comes off like he thinks he’s in the one-up position and like he’s trying to give unsolicited advice. He’s a good guy and said he really appreciate me being honest with him and explaining it since he genuinely didn’t get it.

Another friend of mine has been struggling a lot with dating and he happens to be in the same kind of graduate program as me, which is currently going through this rigorous application process. I have previously asked him direct questions like “how many sites are you applying to?” And instead of answering the question, he’ll go on to give me information that I’m pretty sure eeeeeeveryone in our program knows, like that we need to apply to 15/16 for the best chance to match and blah blah blah instead of just telling me the number he has. At times it comes off like he thinks he’s more responsible than me or thinks he is better informed, but I haven’t confronted him about it yet since he historically only texts and I prefer to do confrontations when someone can actually hear me. But I’m beginning to think that this could be part of why he struggles to date - men trying to show off their knowledge without solicitation is such a turn off.

‘You’re rude as fuck’ is something I’ve used in every context except a work superior.

Works well.

[–]engg_girlPickmeisha™️3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

It is also really great at avoiding situations where you can't out right say no. "Oh room service for dessert sounds great, I'll go to my room and order me some cake" "why would you want to come to my room, when you could order cake to your own room?"

[–]daisy_0720FDS Disciple3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is probably the best way to respond when a guy makes an inappropriate or sexist joke, especially in front of other people. Just say "I'm afraid I don't understand. Could you explain?' Then watch as he gets increasingly awkward trying to explain himself while revealing how gross and depraved the comment was.

[–]MissVvvvvFDS Newbie4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I just had a mate over who started this shit with me. I finally had enough and just told him to leave. Promptly blocked him on all socials. We weren't particularly close so no big deal but I'm so over giving these smooth brains a pass. Adiõs bitch!

This always reminds me of the "sharks are smooth" thread. Funny as hell seeing how far people (mainly men if I remember correctly) are strung along

[–]Paradox_BlobfishFDS Newbie0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I do that a lot when they try to make the conversation sexual.

"Are you horny?"

"What does that mean"

"Sex"

"What is that?"

I swear none of them has even taken it to the point of explaining what sex is. It's worth mentioning that those are absolute strangers, so it's easy to get them to take themselves out 🤭

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
