Women have heard some pretty ridiculous things about themselves. Ignorance is bliss. However, for every common myth about them, there's an equally popular and equally nonsensical misconception about men.

To find out more, reddit user navisnadakkal asked guys to share the fallacies about themselves that infuriate them the most. And they heard it. The post has received over 73K upvotes and 33K comments, and it should become a must-read for every gossip magazine "journalist" out there.

A report called Boys to Men: Media Messages About Masculinity, stated that the most popular stereotypes of male characters are the Joker, the Jock, the Strong Silent Type, the Big Shot and the Action Hero.

The Joker is a very popular character with boys, probably because laughter is part of their own "mask of masculinity." A potential negative consequence of this stereotype is the assumption that boys and men can't be serious or emotional. However, some researchers have also argued that humorous roles can expand the definition of masculinity.

F**k, where to start? I was a stay at home Dad for 2 years. The sheer volume of Karens at parks and playgrounds used to drive me up a wall. They were always dumbfounded when I didn't need their help.
Yes, I can change a diaper. Probably faster than you can.
Yes, I have snacks. Celery, carrots and a little ranch
Yes, I have drinks. Water bottles and juiceboxes
Yes, I have lunch. Chicken cutlet sandwiches. No, we didn't buy them at the deli, I can actually cook.
No, I don't need wine. It's 10AM, Karen. Get a f**kin grip.

The Jock is the one who's always willing to "compromise his own long-term health; he must fight other men when necessary; he must avoid being soft; and he must be aggressive." The jock wins the approval of other men and the adoration of women primarily by demonstrating his power and strength. He's a winner.

The Strong Silent Type is in charge, acts decisively, contains emotion, and succeeds with women. This stereotype reinforces the assumption that men and boys should always be in control, and that talking about one's feelings means showing weakness.

The Big Shot is all about the professional status. He is the "epitome of success, embodying the characteristics and acquiring the possessions that society deems valuable." This stereotype suggests that real men are economically powerful and socially successful.

The Action Hero is "strong, but not necessarily silent. He is often angry. Above all, he is aggressive in the extreme and, increasingly over the past several decades, he engages in violent behavior."

Daughter to a single dad here...

There was this myth I discovered when I was young. It's something almost all my female friends were told, but thankfully not me. The myth is the belief that there are such things as "girl business" where only your mom or other older females in the family should help you with.

As the only girl in the house growing up my dad helped me understand and deal with a great many "girl business" problems. Meanwhile all my friends had their moms to handle it for them. When my friends found out my dad was sort of in charge of handling those with me they were shocked. They asked me why I didn't have an aunt or grandma to help instead. Well, my aunts all live at least ten hours away and grandma is even further.

I began to realize over the years that there might actually be negative side effects to this "girls only" way of thinking. Sure, having another female assist you with those issues might be less awkward and embarrassing, but there's already an inherent awkwardness and embarrassment associated with it. Learning to overcome the embarrassment is part of growing up and accepting your body.

Furthermore, I have since grown up and began studying psychology, and done some research into this further for my studies. I'd have to do a more in depth and wide reaching survey and analysis to come to findings I'd be comfortable with being peer reviewed, but I have a theory that the "girls only" mentality causes relationship issues later in life. Young girls grow up thinking that there are some aspects of womanhood men not only don't understand but can't understand. It makes them not only less trusting of male partners, but also keeps them from seeing men as equals when it comes to parenting.

Sure, if you're a mom of a young girl there's no reason for you to not continue helping her with all the complex feminine issues she's going through. Just be careful not to make her think her dad doesn't empathize or understand too. Don't make him this distant third party who will never get it, or someone who should not be involved because he has a penis. That's the same toxic female attitude that causes soccer moms to call the cops on a dad when he takes his daughter to the park to play. Men can parent too, and they're surprisingly good at raising young girls on their own.

I am not a male myself but i hope it is ok for me to comment, It really annoys me when people say that men can not be raped because if they got a hard on they must have wanted it. Shit like that causes men to not report rapes and makes them feel shit about themselves. ANYONE can be raped, no matter age, sex or if the rapist is married to them. No means no. It is as simple as that.

This is a common misconception. Just because they are erect does not mean they are enjoying it, it is often a natural response to stimulation whether wanted or not. I know a man who was raped by a woman and when he went to the police they laughed at him. This is going back 30 odd years ago and still effects him to this day. He will not get close to any woman and hasn’t had any kind of relationship since.

I find this topic actually to be complicated. I was friends with a lot of women and to many of them I felt attracted. I never acted out on it and tried to kiss or seduce them, as I respected them as my friends. But when you feel attracted to their looks and you get along well as friends: why not try to make more out of it. And here is the point: I was never in love, or had a crush. it was simply "I find you hot, we get along well, maybe...lets try more?" and at this point I would have totally been fine with "no, I dont feel the same" and after that we could have continued. But what I learned is that many women assume that you are just friends with them BECAUSE you feel attracted and that you are nice to them, because you want to get laid and stuff. I was always honest and giving, without expecting anything more than friendship in return. Still it never worked out after that.

I cannot tell you how many comments like "Remember, it's her day, not yours!" I received during the 2-year lead-up to our wedding. I'm not going to lie to you and say I'd been looking forward to getting married since I was 12 or something but I took an active interest together with my wife in the planning of our wedding. "It's not my day, it's hers?" Fuck that. It was our day. We planned it together. Her vision definitely brought it all together and she did a fucking astounding job, but she didn't just make decisions on her own, we talked together about and worked together on every single thing involved in the event; and we were both ecstatic with how it turned out. It turned out beautifully. I try not to toot my own horn very often but I never thought the best party I'd ever go to would end up being my own!

She took the older ones to play, left infant with my sis and I. The baby got fussy so I started to get him. This guy was eating and talking to a male friend, he put his food down, still talking, picked baby up,checked diaper then cuddled baby as he went back to eating. It was a smooth and natural act. I married that guy, who got up for feedings, diapers bathing etc.. never had to push him even though he worked full time and I did not. This man is not alone in doing these things.

The idea that being born a man is like playing a video game on 'easy mode'. Let's just look at the U.S

boys fare worse in education. Boys are less likely to graduate high school, and less likely to attend college. Boys earn lower grades in all subjects at all ages. Discrimination in grading is at play; studies show boys get lower grades for the same work. This was a study from MIT that broke it down and found very clear evidence of direct grading bias.

men consistently have a higher unemployment rate

men are more likely to be homeless

men are more likely to be incarcerated

men are punished more harshly in court for the same crime

men die younger, but have proportionately less healthcare funding.

These things are unlikely to be true for a 'privileged' social class, and certainly doesn't make things easier.

Having said that, sitting down and talking about it with your wife and son , if you didn't already, is necessary. Not everyone is going to be able to figure out where you are at without communication. I hope things get better for you.

Truthfully, guys don't always want sex. There were times with my ex when she wanted sex and was confused or upset that I didn't want it at that point. Sometimes cuddles are enough.

Oh my, when you turn women down for sex. It hasn't happened often in my life but those few times, there were things thrown, accusations of being gay, dramatic storm-outs and refusal to share a bed.

Not sure if it counts as a 'myth' but most TV portrayals; the guy's a dumbass and depends on his wife for literally everything. It's annoying and played out. I don't know anyone close to my age that lives like that.

i found that stupid too, and I am a woman. I think it's played for laughs but that doesn't make them right.

Just because I have a dick and you have a vagina doesnt mean I'm trying to get in your pants. I want friends just like anyone else. But when I try to talk to people like my guy friends they assume I'm trying to date them. No. I just like asking my friends how they were because I hate people who only talk to you when they want something. So I talk to everyone as a show of you are my friend, not the services you offer.

So theoretically, you're right. On practical terms, when 9 men on 10 who play friends trick you in unwanted dates, try to have sex (doesn't matter how many times you say no), then caution principles apply. "I just see you as a friend" is the most common lie I heard. I am so sorry for the rest of you. The issue is that it's very difficult to sort you out. It doesn't mean I don't believe men and women can't be friends.

That men are all sex-crazed maniacs deep down.

Sometimes I don't want to have sex. Not in the mood sometimes and I can't just "turn it on" at will.

people have moods, guys and girls. they prefer different activities at different times. does not mean they have to always be ready to do something if they don't feel like it.

I probably don’t want to f**k you. It’s usually a big decision with like some anxiety figuring out if I actually want to sleep with you even if I’m already interested. Although promoting ourselves as captain horndog makes us look cool to other guys so a lot of dudes do that, or they’re desperate.
