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?
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!
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
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.
Ogling, looking, whatever. I really don't care. As long as he comes home to me
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?
Exactly, that's the point. Please look or ogle but please save us some respect and be discreet about it!
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.
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.
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.
When my accomplishments are dismissed as little in comparison to his lol
I cheat on my boyfriend, " Jeeez what are you saying you dont want yer secret out " " But I want to show my feminine side " " Well go set up a fake female account " " Dont talk rubbish, what nutter would do that ! "
Just looked back on previous posts and I certainly wasnt meaning you, sorry if it appeared that way. I was trying to be funny by saying I myself wouldnt cheat on my boyfriend but obviously failed miserably. Thats me well and truly shot down !
No no, I didn't think you were talking about me. Just wonderin what you meant.
I so need to smile too, lol ...that was fun BC99 do that agin, lol
I fear I need to smile myself, my split personality is taking me over and am beginning to wonder who I am. " Yeah I know ya scared that other wench off" " Nah she just didnt get us, shes probably blonde " " Yeah I guess, yer so clever Bad "
Wonder not...we quite adore our Capitain even when havin a conversation with himself in the mirror
oooo....jus got whet the eye candy appetite a notch or two more huh? lol
Lol more like a travel back in time, tis something I promised someone and for all my faults i never break a promise !
That's a most valuable quality to behold, dear capitain to keep a promise that is, lol
So you all ready to set sail with moi and my merry crew on Sunday night plus ya really will have yer work cut out cheering up the cabin girl, jeez have ya seen her miserable face lately.

Lol of course they do, jeeez I have kids in every port
Hope you are keeping up the maintenance, and how do you remember their names, it'll help some of the others out there if you could find it in your Pirates heart to give them some tips.
Jeeez I hope nobody from the child support agency is a hub member, I might have to sell my ship to pay the back fees for the yappy kids !
Don't know about where you are but in New Zealand, land of State Control, (No longer since we got rid of our ghastly lesbo prime minister Helen Clark, the State services are every where so if you have any New Zealanders on your ship, I'd be wary.lol. You can spot them quite simply. They are the person doing nothing standing there staring gormously into the crowd, watching for offending (in your case pirates. ) They are not strong people are mentally challenged, Best summed up as too Heavy for light work and too light for Heavy work. Watch for them
Omg we Irish are decended from New Zealanders. Ok i gotta try out my new nationality. " Cabin Girl will ya get me a drink sport, cheers girl fair dinkham sport " ...Methinks we did travel from New Zealand Mandy. I like the name Mandy reminds me of a girl i knew, randy girl she was, jeeez I forget her nickname now
They do if ya hug em against a wall in a dark alley
Hell are they teaching that in the Schools, I don't think many realise this.
I was shocked by your answer.
LMAO that was fun yesterday BC I am still laughing my guts out. Me and Cindy were talking so much you could not get a word in lol. Every now and then we would hear this little Irish voice saying "Can you two shutup for a min. Hello......"
Hey Blonde, didn'tt you just love that Irish accent we heard every now and then when we were chatting on skype?
I actually run an Irish sexline if ya both wanna sign up
I met an Irish prossie once, she was really funny she had this sing song voice, and I asked her what she did for a job and she said I'd be in the Worlds oldest profession, luv.
and then she said I am actually one of the oldest in the Oldest profession, and all I could do was listen to the voice, after about 3 Hours signwriting in the Pub she was in I could do the voice. Loved it. She said she made more than me in quarter of an hour haha

I loved your accents, boy oh boy,my stomach hurt so bad from laughing. I can't get on now as my PC is hooked up to the television and when I open something the movie starts jerking lol. Have friends watching Star Wars plus I have to get ready in a min grrrr.Will be on tomorrow when I have some peace and quiet ...

At an extra fee of course !

It is my unfortunate insecurity speaking. My past boyfriend would make it seem like he could get any girl he wanted. I always so lucky to have him. Not just him, I have had a history of boyfriends who made me feel precisely this way. I recently came in contact with my ex, he is playing the nice guy...

So yeah, I'm one of those people who signed up to Hubpages a couple years ago and kinda immediately dropped out. I'm back on it now, trying to put a little more effort into it. I was thrilled to see my hubscore finally get up to 90 this morning! Not sure how the scores are figured or how long it...

Are plus-size women, dress sizes 16 thru 20, just as attractive as thin women? Why or why not?The fashion world is becoming more accepting of women who are plus-sized. How do you view women who are not thin? Do you think curves are in or, not so much? If you are a man, would you date a plus-size...

Do you think it's ok to keep noticing another woman/men after you are in a committed relationship?
