Would you consider me a sexist?
I’ll start this by saying that I have no problem with women’s rights and stuff, I don’t really relate so I don’t think about it much. But I gotta be honest, there’s a lot of behaviors I find really annoying, and most people I know who exhibit them are female. For example, most girls I know talk a lot, and also very loudly. When I bring this up people tell me they know guys who are louder, but in my experience it’s been mostly girls. I remember one class I had in high school where there was a free time for us to talk, and these two girls were always super loud and talkative and I really had to restrain myself from shouting SHUT UP! At them! Throughout my life I can literally only think of TWO girls who weren’t complete chatterboxes. (Coincidentally they were both named Rachel. I guess that’s irrelevant but I thought it was interesting).
But my life has been almost always dominated by girls. My dad died when I was a baby, and I have no brothers. After a while it gets tiring being the only type of person in a group of people. My sisters are always complaining about not finding a boyfriend, and honestly hearing them talk about their standards I think “god, it’s no wonder! You’re expecting way too much!”
And that’s another thing. Believe me, it’s usually WAY easier for woman to attract a man than the other way around. I’ve had girls literally react with disgust at being teased about liking me. They always got so offended when someone even remotely implied they were unattractive, but had no problems reacting to guys in that way.
And that’s something else that annoys me. Girls always seemed to get away with everything. Throughout my school life there were lots of generalizations against both genders from each side, and whenever a girl did it the teachers would usually ignore it (some would even join in). But dear GOD, if a boy ever generalized girls, he would get SERIOUS backlash from everyone! There seriously was this crazy feminist girl who said we didn’t need men to reproduce (I don’t remember her exact reasoning for this) and no one got mad at her!
I guess I’m just in a ranty mood. I don’t hate an entire gender, but sometimes I can’t help thinking “girls” in a really annoyed tone in my head whenever a girl is annoying me. I don’t say these things out loud (as like I said before, I would get immediate backlash from people if I did, yet if a girl did the very same thing it would go ignored). I’m only sharing my own experiences, maybe things are different for the rest of you. I’m sorry if this came off as offensive (probably more childish tbh, but it’s just how I feel).
