That’s pretty awful, but I guess I should just be glad the words “sandwich” and “kitchen” weren’t included. :-

I’ve seen that before.  It’s stupid, but a little funny.  I think you’re being a little sensitive.  We take ourselves too seriously, maybe.  I know better than to tell my husband a problem if I don’t want a suggestion of how to fix it from him.  He’s a problem-solver, that’s just how he is.  And talking only during commercials – I yell at him for not doing that!

That email is older than dirty and goes around regularly.  While it is in bad taste, is that how he really feels about marriage or just something he read and thought was silly?

I’ve seen this list before also.  Although I certainly don’t agree that all of things things should  be true, I do think many of them are  true for many men.

Yeah I get where you’re coming from. I would take the bolded comments as a cliche attempt at a joke that has mostly stopped being funny, and in a lighthearted or tipsy moment I might laugh, but if my Fiance commented that these are pretty true, there would be some serious eyebrow raising. It is pathetic, I agree, just like many other jokes about men writing off responsibility or adult feelings in favor of acting like children. I would just take solace in the thought that your guy probably wasn’t agreeing with the bolded comments in particular, but generally liked the feel of the list. He’s probably in a silly mood. If it were me though, I’d make some snippy jokes right back. Hey, remember how 2 weeks ago you said we couldn’t afford those Christian Louboutins I want? Well guess where the $1,500 from savings went. What’s wrong, you mad??

i’d respond sarcastically with a remark about how embarrassed he must be by the fact that he is apparently able to be summed up in a cheap laugh, internet chain letter written entirely in caps. embarrassing 

also – i’d be annoyed. i hate ‘boys will be boys’ crap – guys shouldn’t get a free pass to be complete idiots on account of their chromosomes.

It’s unfortunate that some of these things ring true. Men really are from a different planet, I swear.

My dad read these out loud a few months ago and my mother, my husband, and I all called him a misogynist. He’s actually not, and it made him stop and think that this really *wasn’t* funny.

I actually find it very funny, but I have a very male sense of humour. I laughed at almost every one. Even if women find it *offensive* I have heard lots of men comment on almost every one of these points.

Overall, men and women do function differently. It’s just meant as a joke and nothing to get all bent out of shape about.
