It's no secret that sometimes we find someone very annoying because of weird or disgusting things that they do. Reddit user @u/amethyst015 decided to focus on women only and ask them online what are some of the things that other females do that they find so irritating that they want them to stop doing it. The question that received almost 12k answers had both some very relatable and unexpected responses. 

Some of the things mentioned included some practical topics such as leaving a mess in a public toilet. A lot of things noticed were focused on behavioral issues: being rude to your daughter-in-law, faking friendliness, and creating gossip about other women. This thread also showed that some problems have been rooted in our society for quite some time, because some women still mentioned that the thing they wish other women would finally ditch is dieting and creating unrealistic beauty standards. 

What were some of the more concerning answers? Users online revealed that they still see other females joining MLM scams and trying to get others involved. But one of the answers that started a whole discussion was about some women who dare to send admiration and even love letters to convicted felons, thinking that they are innocent. 

Which one of these things scares you the most? Or maybe you haven’t found the worthy answer to the question “What is something you wish other women would stop doing?” Then don’t forget to leave your answer in the comments down below!

I live in Iran and I'm honestly disgusted to see how some religious females tend to shame other women and accuse them of being s***s. If you think your husband, brother or son may be seduced by seeing my ears and hair **they** are the problem.

I feel this in my bones! I've been shamed my whole life for the way men behave around me. It finally took my husband saying that I could wear a burlap sack and still look sexy for me to realize that I will NEVER be able to control the thought/begaviors/feelings of those around me, so why worry about it. We really need a cultural shift to start teaching our boys/men how to control their own thoughts/behavious/feelings and stop relying on women to do it for them!

35 Women’s Behaviors That Females Of This Online Group Can’t Stand And Want Them To Stop This is going to get lost in the shuffle but moms who ask their daughters to do more than their fair share of the household chores while the boys skate because they’re “immature.”

**STOP IT**

This is particularly bad among immigrant communities that hail from countries with more…traditional gender roles (basically the Far East, the Mid East, Eastern Europe, Africa and South America) but I know it happens in American households too.

The daughters are fed this garbage about being more mature/responsible so they have to help pick up the slack while the sons are frequently coddled and babied.

It’s infuriating and it’s almost never talked about.

Teenage girls in the US average 8 hours a week more of care taker and household duties than teenage boys. And then those girls grow into women who shoulder the lion share of it in a M/F relationship even when both people work full time outside the home. It's also currently the number 1 reason why women eventually file for divorce in the US. Parents have got to both teach and expect their sons to run households, do chores, etc.

You are a parent if you are the primary guardian of a child; gatekeeping based on pain relief, caesareans, adoption, whether you gave birth on dry land or in a pond, honestly, nobody cares. Is the baby ok? Yes. Is the mom ok? Yes. Then it's ok. It's fine. F**k off about breastfeeding too, just feed the kid. Got milk? Fab. Got formula? Fab. Feed the kid.

I don't have children so maybe I am missing out on why women make such a big deal out of this. I have seen my cousins' wives berate another one and say she isn't a "real mom" because she didn't deliver naturally and doesn't breastfeed. I just don't get it. I really thought the only things I needed to care about were these: 1.) is baby healthy; 2.) is momma healthy, and; 3.) when do I get to squeeze the baby? Am I supposed to care about how the baby got to me?

Yeah seriously. It's the cheating partners fault and they deserve all the blame especially if the other person didn't even know they were the other person. I mean yeah it's crappy if they did know but your partner gets the main bulk of the blame still because they made the decision to cheat on you.

This starts when kids are small! When I was in 1st-3rd grade of school there was this boy who would repeatedly kick my over my shins while we were in class and he would "accidently" bump into me pretty violently during recess. When I asked teachers and other adults what I should do they would just smile and tell me that little boys don't understand their feelings so when they like a girl they often behave badly towards her... so yeah. For a while I was led to believe that affection could be shown with violence. Imagine telling that to a victim of domestic violence???? And can you imagine the girls who were told this lie from childhood and who continued to believe it.... can you imagine what sort of love lofe they will accept as adults? Please stop teaching girls that ppl who hurt them do it because they like them. It is NOT ok!!!

HAHAHAHAHA! My mother gladly welcomed all of my sisters-in-law and my brother-in-law into the family with open arms. She was practically giddy when the boys said they were getting married. She goes out of her way to make sure that they are welcome and included in all aspects of the family. I think that it is mostly because she had 12 boys and me and she was tired and wanted rid of all of us.

Not ALL the time and I'm not saying that I would push the envelope, but just don't be like my ex who called me a narcissist because we were arguing and I mentioned my own needs, which he always and consistently put last. THAT, I definitely don't need again.

To be clear, I'm not talking about trying to eat healthier or even trying to lose weight in a healthy way.

I'm talking about the overwhelming number of women I know who go on these bizarre diets with fasts and cleanses and they don't eat carrots or they count how often they poop or ... I dunno. Weird s**t. Then it becomes their entire personality for a while and it's all they talk about.

It always gives me strong vibes of a person who feels out of control in some aspect of their life trying to regain that control in another, and it makes me horribly sad.
