The Difference Between Men and Women: When They Fight!

One of the blogs I like to do the most is about gender issues. I tend to get a lot of traffic on these posts and it really leads to a lot of interesting debate.

So, we decided to create a series on this topic on our Youtube channel. We want to keep things funny like they are in the blog. We are still really trying to find our Youtube voice but I think as we go along we really will find our groove and you guys will enjoy them just as much as you do the blogs.

So without further adieu..here is the latest video:

The Difference Between Men and Women: _insert your idea here–

See you Friday for the regular blogs!


Journal vs. Diary

This is one of those blogs where I will admit I was wrong. And since it is a blog it is in writing. For those who know me this is astonishing. Take a screenshot if you wish because I doubt this will happen to often. But my friends it is true…

I was wrong.

What was I wrong about you ask? The difference between a diary and a journal. Since I am a girl who loves anything that involves polarity of the sexes I wrote this post topic down as an interesting debate about how men write journals and women write diaries. I was gonna go into how women tend to be more emotional in the logs they keep where men tend to use journals for other reasons like to trigger a memory, maybe to get creative juices flowing or for just no other reason than to write.

But the sexes have nothing to do with the difference between a diary and a journal. And in actuality I had the two flipped.

A diary is meant as a log of sorts. To catalog your day. To write down what happened minute by minute.

A journal on the other hand is used more to write down emotions and memories. If my theory had been right a woman would use a journal and a man would use a diary. But as I said I was wrong.

Whats more? Some of the most famous diaries are not even from women they are from men!


Some of the most famous diaries are from men like Leonardo Da Vinci and Charles Darwin. This actually really surprised me. And now of course I want to head to the store and buy their diaries. I would love to know what such intelligent men wrote in their personal diaries. It must be fascinating.

But now I debate what I used to keep as a teen. I wrote about my day but I always included emotions. Much of my memories were colored by emotions and my writing reflects that. So did I keep a diary or a journal? This might be the million dollar question that will never be answered.

I think I almost prefer that I was right, men write journals and women write diaries. Because that is something I can understand and pin down. Oh well, such is life.

So bloggers. What do you keep? A journal or a diary? Or neither because you blog (like me :))


Medical Coverage: Part by Part

Have you ever read an article and been offended starting right from the title? Huffington Post published one of those articles for me. The title read: ”

Women Should Pay More For Health Insurance Because They Have Breasts And Ovaries, Says Fox Expert”

Okay, I’m sorry what now? So the fact that men have testicles and a prostate are irrelevant I am guessing? But I was so enraged and praying that this article would redeem itself that I read on.

“”We only have the prostate. Women have the breasts, the ovaries, the uterus, they get checked in every part.”

Okay so I will ignore the fact that the “expert” seems unfamiliar with his own anatomy and will tackle his argument. So the theory here is because women get checked in more “parts” according to him this means we should pay more?

He even goes on to say, “…Guys, we don’t like to go to doctors, right?”

Okay so now he wants the male gender rewarded for being lazy and not responsible when it comes to their own personal health. Awesome argument.

What he fails to mention in his perfectly crafted argument is that men have a higher and younger mortality rate. Shouldn’t this factor in somewhere?

I did a little digging and found an article explaining 11 reasons men die sooner than women and want to know the one I found most interesting?

According to this article on MSN Healthy Living, ” Men are also more likely than women to die from injuries, suicide, respiratory cancer, cirrhosis of the liver and coronary heart disease.”

Now I am not a doctor but this would imply to me that men actually need MORE medical attention or at least more extensive medical attention. Women might get checked more but men get sick more. Seems to somewhat balance out does it not?

Of course there are a million and one more factors that must go into this but I think one thing is certain, the number of “parts” either gender has should not dictate a damn thing.

What do you bloggers think? Do you agree with the “expert” here?


Ladies Agree: We All Get A Little Crazy Sometimes…

Alright girls, lets admit it, as a gender we can get a little emotional. Sometimes we get a little too angry over something that really isn’t that big of a deal. Sometimes we ball our eyes out at a chick flick and really can’t explain the reason behind it. Sometimes we get irrationally worried about things that will probably never happen. We as a gender can be an emotional bunch.

That is why it is not surprising for me to learn that many women have tried to inflict harm on their significant other or friend in the heat of a passionate argument. I know plenty of times I have imagined using a kitchen pot Saturday morning cartoon style just to get my point across. However, some women out there have really stretched their imaginations to find the most outrageous way to lash out during a fight. This post goes out to you ladies. The ones who have done something so extreme that the rest of us are left in shock and awe (and in some cases a little disgust). Here’s to hoping none of us EVER go this far:

3) Bond vs. USA:

This woman took chemicals from her work Rohm and Haas Co and sprinkled them on her friends car, door knob and mailbox after learning that her so called friend got pregnant by her husband. This case was so bizarre that it wasn’t even tried as just an attempted suicide but rather has a Chemical Weapons case. I have to say she gets points for thinking outside the box but loses points for getting caught.

2) Stabbed with a Squirrel:

A woman from South Carolina got so angry that her husband didn’t bring home beer on Christmas Eve that she beat him and then stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel. At least the man and the squirrel had something in common, they both had a thing for nuts!

The wrong kind of roadkill: We have all heard this story and I am sure we have all used it as a threat at one time or another, but lets face it its way too good and definitely wins the craziest woman fight hands down. Lorena Bobbit you will go down in history as the woman who went the most extreme. For those of you who live under a rock here is what this woman did: Lorena got outta bed in the middle of the night, cut off her husbands penis, got in the car (with severed manhood in hand) and then threw it out the window. Lucky for the man she had presence of mind after this and called 911 and he was able to get re-attached. But man oh man this takes the cake. Best part is I can’t figure out what she was angry about!

So ladies, when your man tells you, you are being too emotional remind him it could be soooo much worse!


Sexy Baby Voice?!?!

I know many times I write on this blog about things that women do to attract men that irritate me. Well this is another one of those blogs. I am sorry ladies but there are some trends I just don’t understand. For this blog I am talking about the sexy baby voice.

Now don’t give me that quizzical look you all know exactly what I am talking about. The girl makes her voice sound about ten registers too high, she adds far to many w’s to her words and her grammar (if she even had a grasp on it in the first place) flies out the window.

Now the confusing part to me is how is this sexy? I get that acting helpless or ignorant every once in a while can make a man feel needed and give him an ego boost. For that reason sometimes the trash bag is just too heavy for me to take out or maybe a can of soup is just too high for me to reach. Let the man handle it. But my intelligence doesn’t suddenly drop dramatically and my voice doesn’t lose its maturity just because a man is around. And frankly I don’t get why I a man would want that.

Ladies if we want respect from men we need to demand it. Little habits like altering our voice to mirror a baby is really not demanding respect. We are literally asking a man to treat us like a baby by emulating one. Isn’t that the exact opposite message from all these women right’s movements and demand to be treated equal?

So my request? How about we stop sending mixed messages. If we want to be treated equal lets act that way. You want to be sexy? Dazzle them with your intelligence and firm grasp on the English language instead of taking dating tips from the nearest Kindergarten class.

30 Rock did a pretty funny episode on this epidemic, check it out here:

So bloggers, what do you think of the sexy baby voice? Do you like it or does it need to go?


Bodyform and The Truth About Periods

As a female, I hear the dreaded “is it that time?” every time I have a mood swing. This isn’t just insulting it is a blatant giveaway that men just don’t understand periods. So when I saw Bodyform respond to Richard, a man who clearly doesn’t understand the period and even if he is joking does a pretty poor job at it reminds me why women put on an act so much of the time.

If you haven’t seen the original post by Richard see it here. In it he describes how all the Bodyform ads made him believe that “the time of the month” was a glorious time where girls went mount biking and other extreme sports but in reality he learned its much akin to a scene from the exorcist. Classy Richard real classy.

Body from responds with an amazing video which I will share below. This ad really makes me want to cheer for them. Well done Bodyform!

I don’t know if this is just men in my life but every time a man I know gets sick (even with just a stomach ache) the world is basically ending. They are confined to their bed, can hardly lift their head and they are convinced they are dying. However, every month we women have more blood spill out of us then should be humanly possible, our ovaries feel like they are eating us from the inside out and our emotions range from joy to dreams of murder quicker than a cheetah hunting prey.

But we don’t let show whats going on inside if we can help it. Sure we might get a little snippy. We might crave a little extra chocolate. But considering whats going on inside our bodies we have mastered the art of deception. But men still find the need to point it out. Its like they can’t understand it so they might as well mock it.

So Bodyform again thank you from all women everywhere for responding to a clueless male in the manner he deserved.

Bloggers, what did you think of Bodyform’s response?


Oui Oui- Ladies Agree, Accents Bring Sexy Back

When it comes to the things that attract a lady to a man, all girls are different. Some girls (like me) go for the bad boy look. Some girls, go for the pretty boy look. Some girls are attracted to a man’s sense of humor and some girls are attracted to a man’s wallet. But, one common thread runs through most of us girls, accents make us go wild.

I am not even sure the type of accent matters. Whether it be a proper english accent, an australian accent or even just a good old southern accent. Whatever it is, the accent can make an average guy seem gorgeous!

There are of course many celebrities who benefit from this universal truth. However, there is one celebrity who takes this to a whole new level of sexy. That celebrity is Bradley Cooper.

On my many times surfing Youtube, I found a video of Bradley Cooper not only with an accent, but speaking an entire other language for an interview! This man is beautiful before he even opens his mouth. But when the french words flow out of him with the perfect accent he literally becomes an angel on earth. I could watch the interview over and over again and never get bored even though I do not have the slightest clue what he is saying.

Need to know what I am talking about? See for yourself!

Ahh, see what I mean? This video is bound to put a smile on your face to start the week off right!

So bloggers, do you know any other celebrities who harness the power of the accent to captivate their audience?


The Whining Wife

Lately I have been putting up a lot of pro-women posts, making me look like I favor my gender over the other. However, I am actually someone who favors the company of men over women. Although I am a feminist in that I believe women can be just as strong as men and handle many of the same if not more activities and work that men can, I find all too often women play the dumb or weak card. This post I want to talk about what I have decided to name “The Whining Wife”.

Just imagine it saying “whining” instead of “nagging”

You all know someone like this girl. This is the woman who throws a temper tantrum in the middle of a store because her husband won’t have the dinner she wants to have. This is the girl who accuses her husband of cheating on her by blubbering incessantly and hiccuping her way through the argument.

This girl either depends entirely on her husband financially or pretends to. She bats her eyes and sweetens her voice expecting to get what she wants. If she can’t get what she want she finds the inner five year old and harnesses it with all she has.

This is the type of woman that gives us girls a bad rap. She makes us look weak and childish. Although I realize often this act is a ploy of manipulation it is the wrong way to play the game. If we women want to be respected as equals or even superiors we need to start acting like it.

I came across this video on youtube and could only shake my head. Video’s like this are a good part of why women are looked at as the weaker sex.


So bloggers, do you know a whining wife? How do you feel about her childish acts?


So he didn’t call…

Now most of us women have seen the movie “He’s Just Not That Into You”. A handful of us are pathetic enough to have read the book. Well the author of the book Greg Behrendt is basically a genius in dating so I take his word for his gospel..he said:

“If he’s not calling you, it’s because you are not on his mind. If he creates expectations for you, and then doesn’t follow through on little things, he will do same for big things. Be aware of this and realize that he’s okay with disappointing you. Don’t be with someone who doesn’t do what they say they’re going to do. If he’s choosing not to make a simple effort that would put you at ease and bring harmony to a recurring fight, then he doesn’t respect your feelings and needs. “Busy” is another word for “asshole.” “Asshole” is another word for the guy you’re dating. You deserve a fcking phone call.”
Greg Behrendt
Greg Behrendt
Amen to that! So the other day I posted a status that I thought would get raving cheers from all my lady friends. I post “Boys, I don’t care how busy you are if you go three days without talking to her you are not interested, no excuses.” It all starts off as expected, like, check, like, check, funny man hating comment, check, but then things started to spiral out of control….WOMEN DISAGREED!
First of all to all you ladies out there, repeat after me- “I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR!” Feel good? Good! Now next time you want to disagree with your fellow lady friend in the battle of the sexes arena, please I beg of you do it in private! The men do not need to win their battles with a woman as their ring leader! We need to banned together even if we don’t agree. Men don’t need to know that!
Alright, now that THAT is out of my system on to the topic at hand- when a boy doesn’t call. Now the women folk in disagreement used the argument that if we want to talk to a boy we should make the effort. I’m sorry but did chivalry die? Did somewhere the roles reverse and the girls become the chasers and the boys become the chased? If that’s the case my dog and I are gonna get awfully cozy on Friday “date” nights because this girl is not interested.
The More I See of Men, the More I Love My Dog
Another shocker for me on this was the ones who disagreed seemed to be of the older generation. This had me scratching my head a little. Could it be that the older ladies were beginning to lose their marbles a little so they weren’t thinking clearly? Or maybe, they have been so brain washed by the man of the household model that they are trained to say what the men want them to say? No, that can’t be it because these are strong women. Maybe just maybe they actually believe that the “chase” at the start of a relationship should be 50/50.
Now, I need to make things clear. I am a girl all about putting in the effort. When I want to date you, you KNOW it. But I am not interested in becoming the stage five clinger you joke about with your friends. If I send you a text and you ignore, welp:
So this begs the question, how long is too long to go without calling your girl? For me, I stand by the 3 day rule. If you haven’t heard from him in 3 days- move on he’s not worth it.
How about you bloggers? How long is too long? And if you reach that mark of time do you call him or do you move on?

Flirtatious Fibs

Listening to my favorite radio station the other day I came across an interesting tidbit of information: According to Redbook magazine, 48 % of women lie when they flirt. Now although this didn’t at all shock me this got me to thinking, what do women lie about? I have complied a top five list of lies I think women must use when venturing out into the dating scene.

5) “No really, this is my natural hair color.”- Whether the woman’s hair is purple, rainbow or a nice bleach blonde any one woman would like you to believe her hair is natural, no matter how unrealistic that may be. As a guy who is looking to take this flirtation to the next level the best course of action is to smile and agree. Here are some suggested responses: “How do you keep it so shiny?”, “I couldn’t picture you with ANY other hair color.” “Your hair is the most natural looking in the room.” Any of these coy replies are sure to get your lady smiling and interested in the next step.

How could I not think its natural?

4) “I am actually super important at my job.”- Every girl wants to believe that without their pretty little face every day the operation will stop. However, most girls, especially ones in their teens or twenties aren’t quite as important as they’d like to be at work. But, you, Mr. New Guy, you don’t know that. So this is her big chance to seem important. Don’t go ruining it for her. Shower her with awe and praise as she tells you how important she is and how the place just couldn’t go on without her. This is her moment to shine, let her have it.

I even got an award- I am THAT important!

3) “I just don’t have the money to drink tonight”- Did you notice how her eyes became big like a baby deer’s and she cocked her head to the side like a sad baby animal? This is your que to get off your stool and go buy her a drink of her choice. She is by no means too broke to drink but she now has your attention and realizes there is a much cheaper way to drink than spending her money, she can spend yours. If you are interested you better buy this girl a drink or she will move on to the guy at the end of the bar with his credit card ready.

Or she might move on after you buy her the drink…welp maybe next time…

2) “Really, they are JUST friends.” Don’t get me wrong this could be the truth. But in 95 % of situations this is at least a bit of an exaggeration. If the girl you are digging has a few boys hanging around there is a reason to be concerned. She either has a mafia type scenario waiting for you to screw up enough for her to set them loose on you or she has a few back up plans just in case you don’t work out. Before you begin flirting with the “one of the guys” type check your ego at the door this girl is prepared for all you have to bring and she is packing a punch.

Just Friends

1) “I am really (insert age here)”- Any girl no matter what her age has felt the need to lie about their age when flirting. Whether it be the cougar looking to get the 20 year old or it be the 16 year old looking to find her sugar daddy- we have all lied about our age. The important part is to find out how much the age gap really matters. Is this old lady worth putting your college career on hold for? Is this adolescent worth possibly being jailed for? Just remember any time you meet a new girl chances are she is NOT whatever age she tells you she is. This number may not come out until marriage- you have been warned.

Ladies, what lies have you told while flirting with a new cutie? Gentlemen, what are some of the lies the ladies have told you?
