7 Stupid Things I’ve Heard That Have Pushed the Progress of Women Back 100 Years

These are real words that have actually been spit on and all around me, leaving me angry and dumbfounded and just, well, ugh, here we go:

1. Actual comment: “We have drink specials on the menu that I think all the ladies will especially enjoy, like the Melon Summer Spritz, Peachy Keen, and all the Skinny Cocktails. And I see we have a mix of guys and girls at the table. Guys, if you’re okay with it, I’d like to do the gentlemanly thing and start orders with the ladies . . . ”


2. Actual comment: “It’s okay. You’ll never be able to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, but that’s okay.”


3. Actual comment: “Maybe if you wore some eyeliner, you’ll get a boyfriend!”


4. Actual comment: “I don’t want to be with a woman who makes more money than me. That would make me feel weird.”


5. Actual comment: “Yeah she went down on him in the back of a car. She’s such a slut!”


6. Actual conversation:

Person: “I’m not good at women things.”

Mel: “What are ‘women things’? Like what kinds of things?”

Person:Like shopping and dressing up and putting on makeup.”

Mel: “What in the fuck?”


7. Actual comment: “I want a girl first. Actually, I want a son first and a daughter second, so that he can protect her.”


Overheard anything ridiculous you would like to add to the above? Sound off in a comment.

    The one that gets me the most is when strange men yell “Smile!!” at me. Happened last year and I read the guy the riot act. If I don’t want to smile when walking by myself, no amount of random yelling/commanding will encourage me to smile.
