So what if you are the handiest woman in the room? Guys will never trust you to do traditionally male things. Many of them will effectively lose their minds. Men cannot trust us to check the oil, fix a tire, or get a jump on the car.
They tense up involuntarily when we drive and feel the urge to take over, even when we are doing a perfectly fine job. It’s a hundred times worse when you are young or petite-looking.
Good Luck, Bra
If you are anything above a C cup, prepare to wear boring black, white, or beige bras – forever! The bras in question are never cute. "Bras" might be overstating it since they look like after-thoughts. It’s a joke you cannot afford to laugh at just in case those terrible-quality straps fall off.
Also, forget about food and rent for a month. A good, long-lasting bra is at least $85. What does one do? We are proud owners of several sports bras instead.
Man-splaining or unsolicited advice — the curious case of ‘Correctyle Dysfunction.’ Every woman has encountered a gracious man who tells her not to worry her pretty little head. He then proceeds to tell her how everything she knows is wrong.
Men without degrees will explain science to women physicists. The same men claim to know much more about women’s rights than women. Have you ever had someone explain your Ph.D. thesis to you? It has happened.
Why Women Have to Wear More
Imagine a world where it’s hot outside, and women can just take their shirts off! Men do it all the time, and we’re envious. Women, on the other hand?
We're having a hot girl summer, alright – but it is not what you think it is. Tank tops are breezy but skimpy - even a hint of extra skin invites glares from men and women alike! You either wear a bra or an extra layer for more coverage. Either way, we end up sweating buckets.
Red and White
A healthy diet and regular exercise are imperative to menstrual health. But do you know what else can summon the flow? Sleeping on white sheets — and they are usually freshly laundered. Something about light-colored sheets tricking our uteruses into believing it’s party time.
We drift off unsuspectingly, only to wake up in the land of the rising sun. It’s the same when you wear fancy underwear or plan a vacation.
