Odd things men still believe about women
Are you tired of entitled men talking about gender superiority and how they like to be an echo chamber of their own misdemeanours? So am I. The whole prospect of having a less toxic environment for women goes away the moment a man says something sexist. Sexism amongst men is very common. If called out for being sexist, they will come up with justifications so splendid that it would make a certain President look good. From “Women can’t do math” to “Women like to experiment with their sexuality”. Some of them should really leave their current aspirations and pursue a career in generalising women.
It is not only infuriating but frustrating too, when you realise that misogyny is the widely accepted token for being cool in an exclusive men’s circle. The little boys’ clubs aren’t so innocent after all, since misogyny is harboured in the name of men’s conditioning. But what “funny” things do they actually believe about women?

Women are irrational
Men think that women “talk rubbish” or behave “irrationally” for just being women. Some of them will still cringe at the very idea of women talking about fandoms or gaming, since the general idea of “women aren’t into gaming” automatically pings like the notification on your phone. Men need to be called out from time to time. And honestly, their assumptions are not even funny, they are downright gross.
“So, you are a gamer?”
It is probably hard for men to swallow the fact that women are gamers too. A huge chunk of them are and they are really good at what they do. Sexism in the gaming scene is contagious and it can get embarrassing for men when they start mansplaining things to women. Sorry to burst your bubble, but women can game and they are probably better at it than you are.
Girls are needy
Less needy than an entire generation of men craving attention! Everyone in this world needs something, but given the entitlement that most men have, girls could use some of your privileges. So, men, shut up for a change. The irony is that these men belong to the same crowd who believe that India is a progressive state. But who will burst their bubble? Probably no one, because women are done playing therapist for these “sad boys”.

Women like to experiment
Sure, as hell they do but not because they have to live up to men’s “fetishisation” of women being “bi”. Men would fetishise women to the point that they deem these fetishes as facts but in reality, they are yet to discover the map to the “G-spot”. Like most myths, the G-spot doesn’t exist for a man, but a life of disappointing sex does, where they will repeatedly seek validation on how they performed, since women get to mark them on the basis of how good they were. But mind you, you can never score them badly, because that would crumble that man’s ego faster than a stale empire of cakes.

Women complain for attention
Yes, they should, since every second is a battle for a woman in this patriarchal society. Attention needs to be drawn when you are demanding equal rights, because unlike men, women aren’t born with privileges.
Attention needs to be drawn when you are demanding equal rights, because unlike men, women aren’t born with privileges.
Your inability to give an equal space for women has made situations dire where they even have to fight for the simplest of things. Things like “safe space in public transport”, “free sanitary pad vending machines” and much more.
Women are craving to be committed
Yes, they are, but probably not to you. We all crave to find stability through commitment and so are women. If you think that women are craving commitment, then don’t date a woman. But no, you are going to date a woman, complain about how she wants a stable relationship and then act like an entitled prick.
Yes, I fear that these little boys’ clubs are not going to last for long, since they are already crumbling from the inside as they are slowly getting reality checks.
