There was a UFies post today referring to a post at a site I’ve never seen before,
Aspectus, purporting to list 50 things girls wish guys knew. I disagreed with lots of them—so did other women.
I also agreed with some of them, but I wouldn’t classify them as “girl” things. They’re “people” things. They just refer to treating someone—anyone—decently.
But I couldn’t help but wonder if there are actually things that are truly “girl” things. And I’ve thought. And thought more. And you know, all the things I’d want anyone to know aren’t necessarily applicable to all or even most women. I’m fairly certain the same would be true for anyone, male or female. Humans are just too complex for these kinds of generalizations.
So why do people keep making those damned lists? They aren’t, in all honesty, funny. This particular list wasn’t intended to be funny—but I just don’t find most of them any more than very mildly amusing. So why?
