Back in 2017, a survey from the Pew Research Center – a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping the world – established that the majority of Americans believe that men and women are notably distinct in several things: how they express their feelings, their physical abilities, hobbies and personal interests, and their approaches to parenting. 

Now, in reality, this shouldn't have come as a surprise. Although men and women come from the same planet – and not from Mars and Venus like many like to quote – we’re still pretty different. However, what sucks is that a bunch of those differences get influenced by our pretty toxic society. So, thanks to Reddit and its diverse content, today we're going to learn about the ‘womanly’ activities that men should definitely start practicing.

“What’s a women’s thing men should absolutely start doing?” – this internet user turned to one of Reddit’s most informative and thought-provoking communities, asking its members to list some stereotypically womanlike things men should totally start doing. The thread managed to garner over 34K upvotes in just the span of a week, as well as 22.5K comments containing some superb suggestions.

29 Answers To The Question “What’s A Women’s Thing Men Should Absolutely Start Doing?” Don't make fun of your guy friends for being vulnerable or if they were a victim of something normally a woman would be a victim of.
Like when a female teacher has sex with a male student, don't say the kid is lucky. Be as disgusted as you would if it was the other way around.

29 Answers To The Question “What’s A Women’s Thing Men Should Absolutely Start Doing?” I work in a kitchen full of men and it's quite sad to listen to them tell eachother that they can't cry. Or that they are not supposed to do so.

I don't know who came up with this but I fight that "concept" every chance I get.

As a result, most of them feel safe to share their emotions with me. Even crying.

It's total BS that men don't cry. Anyone who isn't an emotionless psychopath cries. It's how we deal with overwhelming emotion. To shame someone for showing emotion is ridiculous. It's better to cry now than to snap and attack people later.

A recent study (I think I saw it on Neuroscience Today a couple weeks ago) suggested that when men don't do their share of household labor, female partners, particularly those with children, find them less attractive because they start viewing them as dependents, and the blurring of wife and mother roles is a major turnoff

29 Answers To The Question “What’s A Women’s Thing Men Should Absolutely Start Doing?” I was trying on jeans for work the other day and I found this magical material that stretches but looks like denim. I was gushing over them and my wife laughed and said a lot of women’s jeans use that material and a lot of hers are the same.

Men should discover these jeans!

Edit: A lot of responses are about the inferior quality. Fair enough but I work retail and am constantly squatting to fill shelves etc so I’ll take comfort over durability any day. Especially when I’ve got a bit of an a*s on me, customers don’t need to be walking around the corner and catching a plumber’s crack unexpectedly!

YES! For pasty-a*s people like me, it's essential. The sun damage you received in your youth will come back to bite you in the a*s when you get older (not to mention what that sun damage will do to your appearance over time). Skin cancer is no joke.

29 Answers To The Question “What’s A Women’s Thing Men Should Absolutely Start Doing?” My husband never really did pedicures before we met and the fist time I did one for him he was in love with it. I used a scraper to get the dead skin off his heels (he calls them hooves haha) and he was horrified how much came off. He’ll even inspect my work now and say “this toenail is a little jagged do want me to look a mess??” He likes being pampered and I’m happy to do it for him!

Definitely. Strength + endurance + flexibility are the big three, but only the first two are legacy virtues from caveman days. But be tactful in your search: it wasn’t entirely easy for me to find a yoga class where the women students didn’t mind practicing with men.

If they get a skid mark, it means two things. Firstly, they obviously didn't wipe properly, but(t) secondly, they scratched their itchy, dirty b******e through their clothes. So, if the point was to avoid touching their b******e, then they failed anyway lol. *edit* what if I spell it "buttwhole"? 🤔

Edit: Since this comment took off I wanted to add, this comment is more of a statement of men not taking care of their hair the way they should. Whatever works for you, keep doing it. Just take care of your beautiful hair.

Where are y'all finding these men that don't wash themselves? I mean, I've obviously met people in my life (of both sexes) that need to improve their personal hygiene, but I don't think this is a "man issue".

29 Answers To The Question “What’s A Women’s Thing Men Should Absolutely Start Doing?” Making an effort to make their home smell nice….the way you clean (taking a shower does not actually clean your shower), washing your bedding with more frequency, buy a few candles, etc… you will feel more relaxed at home and clean sheets are better for your skin/health.

(Pro tip- bath and body works room spray in the bathroom will be a game changer after your morning constitution or before anyone comes over ….or while they are there if you/they ordered the wrong thing on a date and will completely cover the smell of you destroying it in there)

A clean, or at least tidy, home means the occupant(s) take pride in it. Doesn’t matter man or woman, at least give your house a sanitary cleaning once a week, and clean as you go the rest of the time. Wipe counters with clean cloth and cleaning spray, use gritty cleanser to clean toilets, sinks, tubs/showers, vacuum all floors and mop what isn’t covered in carpet (generally kitchen and bath—-after vacuuming them), dust furniture, pictures, TV, etc, and use the vacuum hose to clean upholstery. Wash your dishes and get the moldy food out of the fridge then wipe it down too. You wouldn’t believe how satisfying it is to get your house clean. You also wouldn’t believe how much better a date goes when you bring them t9 a clean house—-a pig sty is a huge turn off, believe me.
