So, you know how people are constantly telling us we’re overreacting to stuff, or that our response is just what they would expect of a girl, or that guys don’t really need to get involved because this is a “female issue” - well, we decided to list them down. Dear men in our lives, we love you, but sometimes you need to do a better job of figuring out where we’re coming from. Here are 10 misconceptions guys have about "female issues".
1. That PMS is just an excuse for us to get "bitchy"
Well, excuse us if we’re not cheerful while the lining of our uterus gets ripped out and we bleed for three days while our hormones have been programmed to go haywire.
2. That it’s the “woman’s job” to take care of the home
Being a woman doesn’t mean we are born knowing how to cook, do the laundry and clean every room. Besides, if you’re living in the house, it’s your home too! It’s time to break the stereotypes.
3. That women are "delicate"
Yup, that’s totally why nature gave us the responsibility of giving birth. FYI, our pain thresholds are beyond your imagination, so stop treating us like we’re made out of porcelain.
4. That if we smile and chat with men, we’re flirting with them
It’s called being nice. If you really want to know if we’re interested, you should just ask us.
5. That we should take cat-calling as a “compliment”
