Who lit the fuse on your tampon, or have you come across other sexist phrases that stick in your mind?

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (36630points) December 2nd, 2011

Some complaints about fluther being quiet, so I’m throwing some gas on the fire.

“Don’t get your panties in a bunch”, and “Get the sand out of your vagina.”

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Ouch Sand in the vagina sounds like the worst. For both.

I have a question sitting in my notepad for about a year that I don’t dare ask because it’s guaranteed to start a flame war. Want me to ask it????

Blackberry's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Yeah, I’m sure that happens a lot during the Summer to women. Must feel horrible.

Blackberry's avatar

@HungryGuy Yeah, we can handle it.

“Must be PMSing”.
“Having a blonde moment?”

“You hit/throw/whatever like a girl”

Damn, @Adirondackwannabe , I come back after a short evening with “friends” and I was going to answer your colorfully phrased question which I found amusing, and not offensive, because, really, it’s kinda cute in its idiocy to discover that you want something entirely different. Because something, indeed, “lit the fuse on my tampon” ow ow ow this evening.

Aethelflaed's avatar

@HungryGuy I am now both apprehensive about this question and dying to know what it is.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Oh, yeah, and “Who snapped your jock strap?”

wilma's avatar

“What’s the matter with you, is it that time of the month?”

JilltheTooth's avatar

Wait… am I the only one who realized that “sexist” can go both ways?

chyna's avatar

@JilltheTooth Funny, but there aren’t that many guy bashings that I can think of. They always get off easy.

wilma's avatar

“There you go, thinking with the wrong head again.”

You see, it goes both ways.

“Sooo, the peanut not dancing tonight?” That was one from clubbing in the 70s. Does anyone remember those days? We were really mean but only when the situation called for it…

Aethelwine's avatar

Men are like horoscopes: They always tell you what to do, and they are always wrong.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

What’s the difference between a really mean pitbull and a women PMSing?A little lipstick.

Aethelwine's avatar

Men are like snowstorms: You never know when they are coming, how many inches you’ll get, or how long it will last.

“Who lit the fuse on your tampon”

Never heard that before. That’s actually really funny. But only if you are close enough that it’s obviously an over-the-top joke.

Q: Why can’t men get Mad Cow Disease?
A: Men are pigs.

This is what’s supposed to liven up fluther? Really? You can throw them all my way, thanks then. But you have to adjust…cause I don’t use tampons, I wear the Diva cup.

What an interesting dynamic; a beloved member of the community is blatantly trolling for the good of the community.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Just saying sometime it’s ok to let your hair down

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe How cliche of you. Someone wants to ‘have fun’ with sexism to ‘liven up’ god knows what and your best response is to ‘lighten up’ if I don’t find that particularly exciting- that’s generally what I get with high school boys not grown people. God, I love how this is being made into ‘look, let us have fun being all passive aggressive and you’re not welcome anymore because you just won’t shut up and let us turn this site into a bar. Oh don’t judge us simone, don’t speak for us, look how comfortable we are with our microagressive statements’ – such bs, I’m really hating it here because of all of this.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Aethelflaed I sense I may have gone a little too far.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

guess I took the ill-conceived bait @Aethelflaed ;)

Aethelwine's avatar

Men are like parking spots: The good ones are taken, and the rest are handicapped.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Oh no @Simone_De_Beauvoir , you’ve got it wrong. we don’t care if you judge us, but it just seems that you don’t understand the value of letting off steam once in awhile, and letting humor diminish and devalue the power of such things. When they are taken seriously, that’s where the harm occurs, not when everyone involved realizes just how silly the whole process is.

Aethelwine's avatar

Men are like linoleum: Lay them once right and you can walk on them for the next 20 years.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@JilltheTooth I absolutely get the value of letting off steam. And anyone who knows me knows how absolutely ridiculous I am as a goofball of a person and especially many times on Fluther but why oh why does your fun have to be about sexist jokes (for whatever gender) – it is simply something I don’t understand and I do NOT deserve to be told that if my ass gets tighter I won’t be able to shit by ANY member on here or any group of people (and have it be GAed by cowards incapable of saying it to my face) – you know why? ‘cause that’s fucked up. Period.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Relax, I was totally kidding with this thread.
@jonsblond Those are pretty awesome!

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I generally don’t speak to anyone who insults me. We’re done for awhile, you and me. Have fun with your pathetic question. Just know that there ARE people out there whose idea of fun is NOT this and I don’t care if the majority of people think this is a good time. If we have reached a time when this kind of question is what passes for fun around here, I don’t want to be part of Fluther. Go rejoice.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I’ve got all night! ;)

Men are like diapers: always full of shit.

Ela's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe you’re okay in my book : )

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@jonsblond LMAO Keep it coming!
@EnchantingEla Thanks I don’t take myself that seriously.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@mowens Did this liven the place up a little?

Husband: A man who buys his football tickets four months in advance and waits until December 24 to do his Christmas shopping.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@jonsblond OMG. I had an uncle that shopped on the 24th of December. He said it made it easier because what was left was what they got.
And guys, be mellow with each other. It’s not worth getting pissed at each other.

Women are like dog turds. The older they get, the easier they are to pick up.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Blondesjon @jonsblond I want to spend an evening with you guys and a case of beer. And invite symbeline.

Aethelwine's avatar

Why do doctors slap babies butts right after they’re born?
To knock the penises off the smart ones

Blondesjon's avatar

Why are women so pissy all the time?

Hell, they have half the money and all the pussy,

Michael_Huntington's avatar

Oh I thought this was a serious question…
I thought it was a question about sexist remarks that you find offensive or something. I need to start reading the details for questions

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Michael_Huntington First thing you need to know when answering my questions: Anything is allowed. No wrong answers ever.

Women should be obscene and not heard

blueiiznh's avatar

And don’t let the door hit you in the vagina on the way out!

EmptyNest's avatar

Someone at work came up with one I’d never heard before. “Men can either be “right” or they can be happy. They just have to learn to decide which they want.”

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

“Men have two heads, and only enough blood to run one of them.” -It may be sexist, but I’ve used that one before, LOL

“That time of the month, huh?”

JilltheTooth's avatar

@blueiiznh : Even in my youth I wasn’t that flexible!

Wife stands for washing, ironing, fucking, etc.

How many honest, intelligent, caring men in the world does it take to do the dishes?
Both of them.

The “Procession of the Virgins” is cancelled. One is sick, and the other refuses to walk alone.

OpryLeigh's avatar

One that I find amusing is “don’t lose your blob” (blob=period) which is similar to “don’t get your knickers in a twist”.

EmptyNest's avatar

And how about this one…“you know you’re having a bad day when you find your tampon behind your ear and you can’t find your tampon anywhere.”

EmptyNest's avatar

noooo. I said that wrong… “you know you’re having a bad day when you find your tampon behind your ear and you can’t find your pencil anywhere.”

rooeytoo's avatar

@EmptyNest – I remember telling that as a joke in high school, I graduated in 63, hehehe, that is an oldie but a goodie!
