Why is It Okay to Hate Men...

I have been too lazy recently and way behind everything that is happening out here in blogosphere. For that I am sorry!! I am also very much behind with all the tags and awards I have to pass on. But now I found a way out as well as powers in myself to continue the best way. I am about to start doing tags every Friday and hope to catch up by the end of spring. This will be my Miscellaneous Friday and once I hope to make it something like Tuesday Love Ramblings. I mean at least that much constant on my blog.

And today I want to start with Pri’s tag. She tagged me like ages ago to write on 10 things I hate about men. Must be fun, so lets start ;)

  • The way they think they are smarter, they are more intelligent and the girl should not interrupt when men are talking on men’s subjects like science, computers, sports, finance, politics. Do they ever learn this kind of attitude somewhere before they go to school?? Some college for little boys, eh?? Because from the very first time they step into school together with girls they are already like that. Inborn capability? Huh?! Wake up, guys! The world changed. It doesn’t belong to you anymore!

  • They remember the name of all sportsmen ever achieved any memorable results no matter from own country or not. Ask them what was the score in the final game of the last FIFA World Cup and you will get an answer. Ask them about the date you got to know each other… birthdays?? anniversaries?? Selective memory, eh?? Would it kill to remember?

  • I wont say anything new now. But hellooooo, if you don’t know the right direction, why not to ask? Big big ego problem.
    “Men don’t need to ask for directions. They know where they are going… (errr…. Honey, where is that map?)”

  • He: Oh.. darling, you have fever. Hey, lie down, I will cook dinner myself.
    She: Oh, no, no, come on, I can do it.
    He: Huh? I told you to take rest, I’ll manage it. Err.. where are vegetables in this house? Hey, sweetheart, did you hide the knife somewhere?
    She: I still want to help you, I took some pills, fever will go now.
    He: Do you think I am not able to take care of you??!! Here is the knife, got it. Oh, shit.. I cut my finger, dear, I cut my finger, I am bleeding.. OMG.. I am bleeding.Ohh.. I am feeling so weak. I need to lie down. Bring me some juice? What?? We don’t have juice?? Go and buy it. Ohh… my finger. And now don’t say I never take care of you. I cut my finger because of you. You should be grateful you have got me. Look for sacrifices I make for you!!

    I hope you got the point!

  • The way they think to run household is not exactly work and you cant get tired by cleaning, doing the laundry, washing dishes, looking after kids.. Noooooooo, it is absolutely not the same as being in office from 9 till 6. has nothing to do with being busy. It is fun for us, kind of a hobby. Why don’t you join? Believe me in the phrase “working mother” working is redundant, actually it is already redundant in “working woman” as whatever a woman does it is already WORK!

  • You do not have birth right over the Remote control. Neither we granted this right to you. And there is more than just sports and news and stupid dirty comedies running on tv… let’s say “Desperate Housewives”, “Sex and the City”?

  • Ok, that’s something that might annoy even more. It is absolutely nothing wrong with looking (I mean we like to look too…), but haven’t you been taught about the art of looking? There is a very fine line between ogling and looking. But somehow, you guys, think its all one and the same! And they call themselves intelligent!

  • The way they hide their emotions when something goes wrong. Come on, we are not dumb, we know something is going on. And if you know us well by now we already have the theory about what exactly is going on. Like you have some illness or you would die or you are going to leave us. So if it is just some small work issue, just tell us - we would be able to handle it better than the whole lots of theories we have imagined while you were not talking.

  • The way they say I don’t bother what you look like because you are a great personality once you are their friend, after you have become their girlfriend suddenly you have to lose some weight, change your outfits, etc etc etc …. You either be more consistent or don’t say anything at all. Otherwise I have a word for it – HYPOCRISY!

  • Once again. Reality check: “A man is in fact a sport obsessed, boob-fixated alien species that will never mature beyond the mental age of 13, capable of generating vast expanses of mess, extravagant noise and unique odours simultaneously” (not my quote!). So you see we have more than just 10 reasons why it is really okay to hate men.

But well, all stereotypes. Reality is different or I want it to be different, though like we all know some points are pretty fair!

When women are upset, they go shopping, men – invade another country. That’s the whole different way of mentality.
Once we learn to live with it, things will be less complicated.

PS: though we still haven’t granted you the right over remote control ;)
PPS: i am not tagging one, though feel free to take this one up if you like :)

Not again..
y do women hate men at the first place? y do u give them any importance in ur life? do u think ur life will be really complete without a men?

Yesterday i was talking to a friend of mine abt the same thing, and she told me and i quote...

"wot ever decision they make ultimately
dey will be a hidden selfish motive
trust me
men wen they get into the real world of sacrifise
they really can do wonders
but women can never ever sacrifice selff lessly"

i dont know wat to say after such a confess, and now another argument can be, that its the way she thinks.. she.. not me.. or not uss....

but then every men is not the same, we all r human and bound to make mistake, a world which is biologically feminine, we surrender to the strength of women, atleast i do!!!

i just love when women say, we hate men.. really funny, the whole life they run after stars and then so hypocrite...

Read my blog.. i wont ever say i need a reason to hat women.. i do hate some at times.. but tat isnt hatred exactly...

Take Care!!!

Lena Friday, March 14, 2008  

lolz Ankur, i never said i hate Men :P
It was just a tag, to point out some qualities that might have been improved next time. And i do realise all people are not the same.
And then i dont know anyone who would love to hate men. Thats life the difference in mentality will always be there.
I am proud to announce that men in my life are nothing like the ones i described in my post :D

And i read that post of yours before, really like the way you put it :)
And i read

*~*Sameera*~* Friday, March 14, 2008

Lena, heheheeh so true! i am married- yes, but still this list about hating men is valid!!! LOL hehehe especially the one abt not interrupting them when they talk abt 'their topics' hahahaha even when we are right, we are made wrong!!!! so annoying!!!!!!!!

Vandita Friday, March 14, 2008

divya Friday, March 14, 2008  

lol @ ankur :D but when did she say she hates men :O

lena u have demeaned him :D hahahah....

i just love this getting to know more things to hate about men...i shud make a list of all these points and then start hating each of them :P

Ankur Friday, March 14, 2008  

When you write such a post, now blame the tag, you cant come with excuses from a story book... or u have?

and lucky.. u have got all diff type of males in ur life... god bless u!!! but all men are not the same...

oh.. may be u r reading between the line then, if it goes specific then i havent mentioned the name of Lena in it... correct urself there and if not then read again wat i have written...(going politically correct way)
inferences can always be made and as you did here so did I...
talkin abt demeaning me... i dont dislike ppl when they criticise me(though lena hasnt anytime), but i think you r tryin to find a quality of urs, out here...
kindly dont feel demeaning after reading my comments...
and do hate men.. coz afterall u have to live with one for 30 yrs.. and u need reasons to find someone else ... :)

Take Care

divya Friday, March 14, 2008  


but i think you r tryin to find a quality of urs, out here...

:O i wasnt tryin to find any quality of mine here :P i was just kiddin

so many ladies doing this tag and each time i get to read something new, it makes me luagh :D sorry anyways :P

lena, u know me right :) i dint mean to criticize anybody here :P i was showcasing my sense of humour...and moreover u told me that u loved my comment :P naaaaaaaaaa ?? hehe

Ankur Friday, March 14, 2008  

If u were just kiddin then its fine.. i guess i m also gettin into the habbit of makin something out of nothing!!!

i like ur sense of humor ... though it was a clearification which made me understand it!!!

divya Friday, March 14, 2008

P.S - sense of humour :P :P

Ankur Friday, March 14, 2008  

yeah really... but y its only women coz of which men feel guilty... y do they sound so rude at times... y only romance lies for only few in their lines n lives... y y y..

and then they even dont remain with the one for whom it is there...

P.S. sense of humor..

Pri Friday, March 14, 2008  

haha! this was fun reading...esp the 'chaos over the cut finger' bit :D
im soo glad i tagged u for this...

Solitaire Friday, March 14, 2008  

HAHAHAHAHAH!!!! That incident of him cutting his finger is sooooo funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anna Saturday, March 15, 2008  

Lena you are funny, excellent post, you said you are lazy lately, but to create post like that - I say I don't think so. BTW you should see how much I am behind, I probably would be done with my not until next spring, lol. Anna :)

Nature Nut /JJ Loch Saturday, March 15, 2008  

Lena, I have found as I get older that I accept men for how they are. You can't change them. That's for sure. They're like stubborn mules when it comes to certain things.

Good evening!!!

Hugs, JJ

anonme Saturday, March 15, 2008  

men, some say, we cant live with em and cant live without em!

i beg to differ!

Keshi Monday, March 17, 2008  

LOL good one hun! I loved all th epoints u accurate abt them haha!

(¯`•._.•[Raaji]•._.•´¯) Monday, March 17, 2008  

haha... I loved your post.
I would say that in my opinion, a lot of your comments about men were biased may be because of the circumstances or experiences you have had but some are just downright correct... the remote control one... and the knife cutting one (absolutely hilarious) :-)
Cheers! :-)

hope Monday, March 17, 2008  

lolz @ ogling and looking.. haha so true..
and remote control.. :D

good one lena.. *smiles*

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

Thank you, Sami! :)
Glad you had fun reading this one.

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

TGITF sounds just too good Vands, i guess i would never be able to remember it :D

#8 is what annoys me most

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

lolz, divvi, you decided first to make a list and then start hating?? what else could i expect from you :P

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

Ankur, it is not like i was making excuses.. If you read the post attentively you noticed that i said it is all stereotyped but some of them are pretty fair ..
And lucky me was blessed with men without those habits i mentioned in post except #8 which is not possible to be avoided!

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

Divvi baby, ya ya i loved your comment especially because i know your sense of humour ;)

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

Pri, chaos over finger cut wasnt even invented :D

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008  

sneha, me is happy i could make you laugh :D

Lena Monday, March 17, 2008

Yes, JJ, they are stubborn when it comes to most of things! :)

Too good :)
Love the list, if you ask me to pick out favs I won't be able to do so.

I would've written almost similar post.

It is absolutely nothing wrong with looking (I mean we like to look too…), but haven’t you been taught about the art of looking? There is a very fine line between ogling and looking.

BTW, you had me ROTFL ...
Laughter is the best medicine, they say ...
this might come handy for me :)
