"Oh, yes, I'm coming, I'm coming!"
"Oh, no, honey, I wasn't faking."
"Of course, honey, you're the best I ever had!"

Three for the price of one, and you walking dildoes keep buying it!!!

CowboyNinjaD: FarkinHostile: Women are generally far more complex and perhaps better communicators then men.

Emotionally unstable does not equal "more complex," and acting like a hostile biatch without saying why you're mad for a week and then expecting an apology does not equal "better communicators."


Man, quit dating girls in high school already.

When women disagree with someone's opinion of themselves, they assume it's a lie.

For example:
Her: "This dress makes me look fat!"
Him: "No, it makes you look hot!"
Her: (thinking) "He's just lying to me to make me feel better. Asshole!"
Him: (thinking) "That dress makes her look hot!"

Women's brains evolved to "stay home", nurture children and hang out with other clan females. Men's brains contain roughly 6.5 times the amount of grey matter related to general intelligence as women's brains, while women's brains contain about 10 times as much white matter related to general intelligence as men's. Researchers point to this finding to explain the controversial belief that in general, men may naturally excel at math while women tend to excel in areas like language and communication.


Lets try to keep the hate to a minimum and understand the actual differences better. As if men were so better. We are not, we are assholes in our own way.

Control_this: My theory is that women are training men to be better liars. Every question they ask is a training session. If you tell the truth, you're punished. The better the lie, the better the reward.

So... Women are Scientologists?

FarkinHostile: Women are generally far more complex and perhaps better communicators then men. Therefore it stands to reason that they would be better liars. Sort of like men being better at most physical tasks in general.

How is it that women are considered better communicators, but when you ask your gf what's wrong (and you know something's wrong) she says, "Nothing."
To me, that indicates a distinct lack of communication.

NOT SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF LADIES.

That's like being proud of living in the basement and jerking off a lot. Sure, it might be fun once in a while, but as a lifestyle, it's just pathetic and wrong.

Ishkur:
Now, when men lie, they save it for when its really necessary, like a Get Out of Jail Free card, and they figure if they're going to lie, they might as well go all out and logically produce the most sophisticated, elaborate, most incredibly airtight lie every devised. Men will spend weeks preparing a lie, and will develop project management plans, flowcharts and visual aids for their friends to back up the lie.


You could save a lot of typing by just saying some men are pussies.

Lying is usually a cowardly way for a weakling to dealing with things they can't face.

So women lie better than men? Well well well.

It's been my experience that women are pretty much used to all sorts of layers of lie and subterfuge among their female companions. It's just how they relate to each other. Men on the other hand are generally straightforward and say what they mean. The problems come in when women expect men to be like other women, and imagine that their men are lying to them. Which leaves the men scratching their heads and wondering what's up with those crazy women.

(I realize this is a generalization; there are some guys out there *cough*BillClinton*cough* who have lying down to an art form women could never hope to achieve.)
 
2008-03-02 04:13:11 PM  
Especially if you include "lying to yourself" as lying. I'm thinking of such perennial hits as "You're always wrong" and "You did that on purpose just to piss me off."

Fark relationships. Every woman = lying cheater. Even if it's not full on sex... even if it isn't hooking up... they're still pulling something behind your back. Flirting with tons of dudes, letting themselves be taken out to lunch by their "friend"... I've met like 2 girls that were pretty stand-up about that sort of thing. The rest were all filthy skanks.

Okay, I agree many of the women out there are twisted, dishonest, manipulative, and generally a pain in the ass. Worse I find many are obsessed with looks over character. However, there are stable, honest, consistently even-minded women out there. I'm sorry you haven't found one yet.

CasperImproved: You know what? I wouldn't mind the little daily lies so much if they would just STOP THAT DAMN ASSUMING WHAT I'M THINKING, OR MISINTERPRETING WHAT I SAID.

Oh yes. As far as I know my wife doesn't lie but pretty much every argument we've ever had starts with me saying something stupid and her constructing an entire mistaken thesis of what I'm thinking, and refusing to accept that I didn't really mean that. I still say stupid stuff though. I'm a guy and apparently I'm incapable of learning. Most of the time I apply Rule of Marriage #1 but sometimes I forget.

* Rule of Marriage #1: When in doubt, say "Yes dear". If "yes dear" doesn't work (e.g. "Does this make me look fat?") shut the hell up or run the hell away.

I'm sure many of you have dated idiotic women. Hell, I know some idiotic women that I would love to do something with. I've also dated/known some idiotic guys who were unstable, lying scum. Doesn't mean all men are crazy, lying scum; I also know many who aren't as well.

I was making fun of the fact that you guys were taking a rather shiatty article from a crappy news source and were using it to justify painting it to all women. I know this is Fark and Fark loves it's woman-bashing, so I really don't care that much. But doesn't mean I can't be snarky as well. Sorry.

Somewhat of a tangent, but I've always maintained the belief that most of the female pettiness people remember from high school doesn't really fade away with maturity. What changes is their ability to hide the pettiness with greater skill.

I'm also willing to admit that most men never really outgrow toys -- hell, one of the great aspects of parenting is the ability to play with hotwheels and transformers again without anyone thinking it strange.
