Pretty Girls Don't Poop and Other Untruths of the Male Imagination

In the infamous words of George Costanza, “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”

We all believe half-truths to make sense of the nonsensical to some degree. When it comes to solving mysteries of the opposite sex, one could argue reconciliation by half-truths is better than nothing at all.

In an attempt to understand the complexities of women, men have developed a series of convenient female ”truths”. Follow me as I attempt to set the record straight after the jump!

    Women fantasize about other women
    Men, you fantasize about women fantasizing about other women. When in fact, we fantasize about Ryan Gosling or Christian Grey...or Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey.

    You're the best she's ever had in the sack
    You just might be...but then again you might not be. What is she going to do, tell you she's had better? C'mon.

  • Women are desperate to get married 4 of 17
    Women are desperate to get married
    Relax Romeo, women aren't racing to the altar. The National Center for Health Statistics found 40% of women have never been married, with even fewer in their first marriage. So relax, enjoy, and think about putting a ring on it when the time is right.

    Women feel indifferent toward sex
    We're not. In fact, when we're not tired/PMSing/too cold/bloated/stressed/craving chocolate, we're so totally hot for you.

  • Murder is contagious 6 of 17
    Murder is contagious
    Snapped is a true crime television show about women who "snap" and commit murder. While we women love it, men without exception fear the crazy is contagious. It's not...or is it? Bwahahahaha!

  • Women want lots of babies 7 of 17
    Women want lots of babies
    Do you honestly think we want babies so dang bad we don't even care what you want (or don't want)? Or worse yet, that we'll resort to all kinds of female voodoo to trap you into child support forever? I'm not saying this never happens but it's the exception, not the rule. Let's chalk female trickery up to a few bad apples.

  • Women want your money 8 of 17
    Women want your money
    What we want is your ability to support yourself. We're happy to give you sugar, but we ain't your Sugar Mama.

  • Women go to the bathroom in groups to talk about you 9 of 17
    Women go to the bathroom in groups to talk about you
    We go to the bathroom in groups because the line is so damn long that we need people to talk to whilst hating on ourselves in fluorescent lighting.

  • Women hang out naked, or at least in sexy lingerie 10 of 17
    Women hang out naked, or at least in sexy lingerie
    Most women I know go from naked to fully clothed in 1.7 seconds. We do like sexy lingerie, UNDER OUR CLOTHES.

  • Women likey-wikey baby talk 11 of 17
    Women likey-wikey baby talk
    Except we don't. Like ever. Baby talk is never sexy, because babies aren't sexy. Call us an endearing nickname if you must, but say it like a man, dammit!

  • Women don’t go for the nice guys 12 of 17
    Women don't go for the nice guys
    We love nice guys; nice guys with backbones.

  • Women don’t need you 13 of 17
    Women don't need you
    In a fit of anger we might scream (rather convincingly) that we don't need you. The truth is we do need you...until you piss us off again and we don't.

  • Women like to be called/texted all the time 14 of 17
    Women like to be called/texted all the time
    Beef up that cell plan, we want you to call and/or text in 15 minute intervals throughout the day. Bonus love points for cutesy emoticons. Not. Call when you have something to say. Check in periodically when you miss us. Send a sweet text if you want to. Otherwise leave us alone; we're busy!

  • Pretty girls don’t poop 15 of 17
    Pretty girls don't poop
    We know you know pretty girls poop. We also know you don't want to know, but you know what's grosser than a pretty girl pooping? A pretty girl not pooping.

  • Women have grand romantic expectations 16 of 17
    Women have grand romantic expectations
    We don't need big, embarrassing public displays of adoration. It's all about listening to the little things and showing you care. Do it because you want to and we'll do you because we want to.

  • Women possess the crazy gene 17 of 17
    Women possess the crazy gene
    We all have the capacity for a little cray cray when pushed to the brink (especially via nasty breakup). Lady-crazy doesn't mean we'll boil your bunny or key your ride, but we might stalk your Facebook and rebound with Ben & Jerry. And by "might" I mean definitely.
