I recently posed the question “Who is easier to understand, Men or Women?” Out of hundreds of replies, 2 people said Women, 3 people said neither, and I found that VERY INTERESTING. There were even a few dozen women who exclaimed, “Women don’t even understand Women!!” LoL!!! Some of them even said, “That’s why women don’t get along with each other. It’s true in Work environments, It’s true in families, It’s true in female prisons VS male prisons.” HA!! That is just hilarious to me. And these are women saying these things! It’s almost like women need to come with a manual and instructions… Like women are the complex species, LoL! I joke, I joke…
But what isn’t a joke is that I feel the exact same way. Here are a few examples:
Her: Babe, You hungry? What do you have a taste for?
Him: Ummm… How about Chinese?
Her: Meh, I don’t want Chinese.
Him: Ok, how about Italian?
Her: Nah, I just had that 2 days ago.
Him: Ok, so what do you want?
Her: I don’t know, that’s why I asked you O_o
Her: Hey babe, what’s wrong? What happened at work today?
Him: *Sigh, Man, my boss is just getting on my nerves.
Him: Hey babe, what’s wrong? What happened at work today?
Her: *Sigh, *Tear drop… Nothing
Him: Babe, do you think I can still fit on this?
Her: Ha! Boy, if you don’t put that Large down and put on that XXL, I’mma beat you! You ain’t 21 anymore.
Him: Ha! You’re right. I’mma get my sexy back by the summer though, you watch!
Her: Babe, how do you think I look in this?
Him: *Deep breath, Ummm… I… I think that blue one looks better. I like you in the blue.
Her: You think I’m fat don’t you. Well, everybody can’t look like your little chicken head co-workers!!! You know what? That’s why I don’t like going out with you!
LoL! Of course some of those analogies were a bit extreme and animated…
Or were they?
The consensus on Men being easier to understand, BY NO MEANS, makes us the superior gender. Men being easier to read, BY NO MEANS, makes us better. But it does… well it SHOULD speak to a new approach that we all might want to take a look at. For example…
If I am a college and I offer finger painting as one of my courses, I’m almost sure that MOST of the students who take the class will get an A, And almost no one will fail. But if I offer Nuclear Physics, I’m going to have tutors, and extra help in place because I know that the complexity of that class will require me having extra reinforcements in place for those who truly want to pass. With that being said, do women deal with men in such a way that extra reinforcements are already in place to aid him in his understanding? Or is that even needed? Some women may say, “He has a mother, and maybe sisters and I’m sure he has female friends so he can learn all he needs to learn with them before I even meet him.” And that may or may not be true. But what I do know is, generally, women complain about men “Not getting it” or “Not understanding them” far more than men complain about women not understanding men. It makes me wonder if this female complexity is part of the reason (not all of it, PART OF THE REASON) why men typically take longer to commit. I know for a fact, if I was sitting in the registrar’s office, I’d pick finger painting, and phys ed waaaaaaay quicker than I’d pick Thermodynamic Theory, but that’s just me!
So is it that A- Men are just not as smart? And we’re lazy? And we don’t want to put in the work that it takes to understand and truly cooperate with a woman? Or B- Do women NOT realize that the consensus is that they are more complex? Or C- Do women realize that the consensus is that they’re more complex, yet they still think it’s a man’s job to step his game up and she shouldn’t have to be patient with him and/or accommodate him in his trying to understand her?
Talk to me… Oh, and for those who like to call, e-mail, text, BBM me, etc… in regards to these topics, I’m no longer entertaining those. There’s a space below for you to share, laugh, debate, pose questions, challenge, etc… This is entertainment but it’s also a chance to learn and possibly help someone. So if you want to hit me privately about what I post, do it after you’ve already posted it here and YES you can do it anonymously. Not being mean or arrogant, just being Real. Ok, so let’s have it….
