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”


“Your hair looks nice today!” is a compliment. “Hey, baby, nice ass!” is not.

6. That women “over-react” when they get touched/ groped in small spaces


We know when a touch is “accidental” and when it was intentional. Touching us/ groping us is a massive violation of our space, and no reaction will ever be enough.

7. That we dress up and wear makeup for men...


Truth be told, most of the time, we’re dressing up for other women. Sorry, boys.

8. ...and that if we wear short dresses, we are “asking for it”!


Unless we open our mouths and spell it out word for word, we’re never asking for anything.

9. That women enjoy sex more because they can have multiple orgasms


To put it simply, no. That is where your prowess really lies, gentlemen.

10. That all women in power are bitchy


Why is it that when a male manager has a no-nonsense attitude, he’s termed as a go-getter and a thorough professional, but when a woman manager does the exact same thing, she’s bestowed with the bitch title? We are just being professional, like we’re expected to.
