The Fifty Things Not To Say To A Woman

A fat paycheck, dimples and six-pack abs might make most men look like they’ve stepped straight out of a list of ‘The Most Eligible Bachelors In The World’, but what makes a guy (read: you) truly attractive?

The answer is, how you treat (and respect) women every day.

The Fifty Things Not To Say To A Woman

Sure, you might be averse to rape jokes, fight for #GenderEquality campaigns online, listen to Beyoncé’s ‘Run The World (Girls)’ on loop, or stand up for your women friends when they are being harassed at the bar, but then again, that’s so 2012. Sometimes, all it takes is a single statement to be an asshole – it’s like using #NotAllMen at the end of your tweet – you’ve literally proved your douchiness in 140 characters or less.

Want to know whether you make the cut?

Whether you call yourself a feminist on Facebook or are a guy who simply enjoys helping around at home, if you go ahead and say any one of these fifty sexist (or sometimes, misogynistic) things to (or around) a woman, you are probably getting it wrong:

1. ‘Are you sure you can handle that?’

2. ‘You are really funny for a girl!’

3. ‘Wow! You really need to calm your tits!’

4. ‘Okay, there’s no reason to start crying about this now, alright?’

5. ‘Will you stop being so dramatic!’

6. ‘Is it that time of the month already?’

7. ‘Are you like, a feminist? Does that mean you hate all men?’

8. ‘Girls don’t talk like that.’

9. ‘You aren’t looking to get married? That’s intense. But wait, are your parents okay with that?’

10. ‘What do you mean you don’t know how to cook?’

11. ‘It’s got nothing to do with the fact that you are a woman, but I really don’t trust your driving skills,’

12. ‘Hold on, when I say that all women are like that, I obviously wasn’t talking about you. I was just talking about women in general…’

13. ‘You’d look so beautiful if you just tried a little harder,’

14. ‘ You have got to stop being such an attention whore!’

15. ‘Gross, what kind of girl wants to gain muscle?’

16. ‘What sort of mother leaves her child at home with a nanny? It’s such a first world thing to do’

17. ‘I mean, she’s sexy, but she’s not the kind of girl I’d take home to meet my mom, you know what I mean?’

18. ‘I am not saying she asked for it, or this isn’t a stance that supports rape, but why can’t women just dress more appropriately when they are out partying late in the night?’

19. ‘How can she be such a bitch at work, dude? I bet she hasn’t been getting any…’

20. ‘Whoa, you need to hold on with those drinks, lady!’

21. ‘You’re pretty strong for a girl… do you do pull ups at the gym?’

22. ‘Don’t mind, but don’t you think that your dress is a little too low. Would you be safe going back home later in the night like that?’

23. ‘Wait a minute, what do you really know about football?’

24. ‘Okay, jokes aside, which of the main characters from Sex And The City do you most identify with?’

25. ‘I am sure she got the promotion because she was sleeping with the boss…’

26. ‘Have you thought about going on a diet?’

27. ‘Have you thought about putting your name down on a matrimonial site?’

28. ‘…But what about men’s rights?’

29. ‘What do you mean pink is not your favourite colour?’

30. ‘hy! Wanna b ma frend?’

31. ‘Who takes women’s cricket seriously, yaar? I am Team Virat!’

32. ‘Such a beautiful woman like you doesn’t deserve to be alone at a bar, so how about I buy you a drink right now?’

33. ‘Don’t you want to do something about those stretch marks?’

34. ‘My boss is such a ball-buster, man…I am sure she has her husband whipped at home,’

35. ‘So much drama, man! She must be on her periods….’

36. ‘It’s women like her that give women all over the world a bad name, no?’

37. ‘Yes, yes, that’s all very good, but what I honestly feel would work for this situation right now is that….’

38. ‘Whoa! Did you see the jugs on that one?’

39. ‘It’s just my opinion, but I think that women are their own enemies…’

40. ‘Are you really going to teach me how to play Call Of Duty? No thanks!’

41. ‘Does your boyfriend know you are going out dressed like that?’

42. ‘You must have been such a pretty girl when you were younger…’

43. ‘What are you doing at the gym? Shouldn’t you be at home watching Keeping Up With Kardashians or something?’

44. ‘Wow! I didn’t know girls could abuse like that!’

45. ‘See, when I told you to ‘go make me a sandwich’, I was obviously joking, where’s your sense of humour, yaar?’

46. ‘If you can’t make round rotis, you are failing as a woman….’

47. Are you really going to have that steak all by yourself? Shouldn’t you be having something healthier? Like a salad?

48. ‘Listen, this might sound awkward, but you might want to cover up a bit…your bra strap is showing…’

49. ‘I am telling you, boys will be boys, and you should just get used to it…’

50. ‘You make more than your husband? He must be such a great guy!’

Feel like you’ve said more than half of these to all the important women in your life? Are you hanging your head in shame? Reaching out for your phones to apologize to all your (girl) friends? Writing out a ‘love you’ text to your mom? That’s great. Now let it sink in as you go make yourself a sandwich.

What do you think?
