Boys, take note because we’re about to show you a mirror and it ain’t looking pretty. For way-too-long now women have been subjected to casual sexism and we’re not having it anymore. Don’t say the following things even if you think they are compliments in your head. Plain speak – they are not and were never flattering to begin with. Here are 10 compliments men give that are sexist!




1. “You’re not like other girls.”


You mean I’m not strong, resilient, sensitive, and overall awesomesauce? Well then, f*ck you!

2. “You’re really funny for a girl.”


You’re about to be punched in the face and guess what; you’re about to learn something new today. I’m also very strong; you know, for a girl.


3. “Wow! I’m amazed you drive so well.”


And I’m amazed you have the audacity to be making sexist comments in 20fucking17.

Too bad you haven’t learnt how to you hide your insecurity even with these thinly veiled sexist remarks.




5. “You look much better without makeup.”


And you look better with your mouth shut. Two can play, ya know.
