    We all know how much irritating it is when he praises another women ... well if not all then most of us atleast feel this way. So what is it that is touchy for you? A remark, an action ... or something else?

      I love it because I know it irritates the hell out of a person to actually ignore someone intentionally, and if they just ignore you Brenda out of sheer rudeness they aren't worth, your annoyance they are just ignorant.

    Well, it's kind of a double standard once I think about it, as it appears I allow myself to look at other attractive guys--but get a little jealous if he does the same with other attractive women!  wink

      Double standard or not, we hate it when he looks at those pretty 'things' while we are having a bad hair day!

    I hate it when people refer to women as "girls". It's ok in many contexts, like another woman saying "She's one of the girls..." but when someone says something like "I hired a new girl yesterday" I find that offensive.

    Probably 90% of people who use "girl" instead of "woman" don't mean to offend, but I think it's demeaning to women, personally.

    When people make assumptions about me solely based on my gender. Things like I must love to shop because I'm a woman..ah, no, I loathe shopping with a passion.

    We ran into an old friend of my other half's the other night, and he made a comment about the guys getting together to play a round and "you girls" (cringe) could go shopping and go see one of those "girly" movies you like. My honey, looked at him and laughed and told him he obviously didn't know me at all..gotta love that man!

    It doesn't bother me when my boyfriend looks at other women. I told him yesterday that I think my TA for my lab class is hott. Doesn't mean anything. We're both free to look and not touch smile

    As far as what annoys me. I guess like what Lisa said, assumptions based on my gender. But even that doesn't bother me because I just prove them wrong. I had to replace a solenoid, sensor, and a valve in my car the last few months, I knew how to do it, what parts to purchase etc. But the guys in the auto parts store (who I'm now friends with) treated me like I was clueless. I wrote a hub on gender socialization, I find it interesting.

    "Girls" doesn't bother me. My hub is titled "I enjoy being a Girl!" because that term to me relates to being young and fun... which I am. "Girl's night out" etc. always refers to fun things. So it doesn't bother me.

    Not much annoys me about my gender.

      Yes I'd say well done on that. Looking is allowed but what about ogling?

      Between stereotyping is more a problem in societies that treat woman as inferior being. In the western world , its mostly all cool or its tolerable atleast.

          I agree! I also think women look just as much, we're just usually more discreet about it.

            First glance ok
            2nd glance cuz he really liked what he saw
            staring hmmm just look at those @ or @ nice
            ogling look at me me ,notice me damn shes hot

            that last three disrespectful ( my opinion)
            last two actually ,I think hes already bringing her home in his head so he would be better off not coming back home to me.
            Doesnt every person want to be  someone special to their partner?

            lol cant you just see dogs out on a little walk and as they sniff the air its whoops ,off I go to the left , now to the right ewww...
            before anyone shoots me down and says women do it too . yep some do but mostly they dont.

              Of course, we want to be special, but with the man in my life I *know* I am...he shows me in a hundred different ways every day; I don't need him to pretend not to notice good looking women to prove it to me.

              I was in a very long marriage where I *Thought* my husband would never cheat; he never looked at others...Yet,I found him enjoying the "assets" of a mutual friend. Give me honesty over BS any day of the week!

              My...cripes, what the hell do I call him.."Boyfriend" sounds ridiculous at our ages (I'm in my 40's and he's 19 years my senior..and NO, he doesn't have money..LOL) and "significant other" to me sounds as if you have a few "insignificant" paramours hanging about....anyway, my other "other half" and I point out good-looking people to each other. We know, without a doubt, who we are going to bed with; so why pretend that others don't exist?

      lisafwg01posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      It's an annoying waste of time! I want to go in, get what I need and get out.

      I know my sizes, haven't tried on clothes in years, and you couldn't pay me to spend the afternoon in a mall.

    Add me to the list of women who does not like shopping. I like to spend as little time in stores as possible or order online.

  11. SweetiePie profile image83
    SweetiePieposted 8 years ago

    I like to go shopping for clothes, but only when it is not crowded.  I hate going to stores when there is a crowd, and I have literally had women try to intimidate me out of certain aisles before when it came to discount items.  After that I decided if a store is way too busy I will just come back another time.

    Right now I think I have enough clothes and crafting supplies to last me for awhile, which helps me to save money and stay out of the stores.  Some people say women love to shop for designer labels, but I have never done so myself.

    Sexism is so accepted in some quarters ,I find it so archiac in a so called developed world!
    p.s I am not a feminist just recently been exposed to some attitudes that I thought seriously were long gone grrrrr....
    i.e the kitchen is womens work?
    which is b/s coming from someone sitting in a lazyboy holding a can of beer.
    or this story
    Neighbor friend elderly gentleman explaining to my husband and I how Southern Gentleman were ,then looking at me said ,'Now if I was thristy ,a good southern woman would never let a man pour his own glass of water" she woud do it ,I just grinned for even if I disagreed ,out of respect for him, I said nothing. but when he added 'do you do that for you husband now'? its important you see that he feels the master of his own home"
    ( little voice in my head said ,wow wonder if the little women wiped yer butt too?) lol
    No Sir I do not unless his injuries have left him crippled.
    Now Im the sassy one and he feels hubby needs to bring me into line....
    So yep that kinda thing makes me grrr..mad.

  13. Colebabie profile image59
    Colebabieposted 8 years ago

    I think the special part is that he does come home to you. As long as the relationship is strong I don't see a problem with admiring what another human being looks like.

    My boyfriend is free to look. I still feel special because I'm the one he is with, I'm the one he says is beautiful.  I would be lying if I said I didn't picture another guy naked. I think that it isn't a big deal. My boyfriend is the one that I've been coming home to for four years. I wouldn't ever cheat on him.
