Well, maybe it is funny, until you realize that, in so many custody cases, men, by default, are more likely to lose custody of their children to the mother, due to stereotypes like these.

Or, maybe as someone who has had his fill of stereotypes slung at him, I have ceased to find them funny in any capacity.

Oh well...so I'm guessing that men who don't act as irresponsible as this are not real men?

if that's the case, as most of those don't apply to him, my boyfriend isn't a real man...

Though I'd beg to differ.

LOL. Well, luckily for any guy that I'll date in the future, I'll never ask for some exotic thing like tofu (which I don't eat in the first place), or "cumin" (what the hell is that anyway?). Bread and milk are fine. .

And as for the feminine stuff...I'll get it myself.

This is so totally describing my dad. .

My dad got along quite well with my mom's mother, actually. We barely saw my dad's mother (she lived all the way in Arizona. I saw her once when I was, like, three).

My mom's like this-she'll ask everyone-my sister, my dad, and I-what would go best with whatever she's wearing.

Personally, I always feel bad for guys in this area. Like Frank on "Everybody Loves Raymond" said one time to his wife, "You still need reassurance after 45 years?". Very true. I figure if the guy still wants to be with me, he obviously doesn't have that big a problem with how I look, and therefore I will refrain from asking him that question a zillion times over.

Besides, that's a question on which guys are screwed either way-if they say a girl looks fine, the girl accuses them of lying, if they're honest and tell the girl they don't like what they're wearing, the girl gets mad then, too.

So I just plan on avoiding getting into that mess altogether.

This list is cute. Very funny.

Stereotypes don't just appear magically out of nowhere, you know. I guess you're not the type who can accept a statement as being true in general of a group of people but not necessarily for a single individual.

And it's not like men are a minority group that has been historically marginalized (though I think that both minority groups and dominant groups should be able to withstand such humor).

Cumin is the seed-shaped fruit of the Cuminum cyminum plant. This plant is a member of the Apiaceae family, a family that includes dill, celery, coriander, fennel, parsely, and anise.

Cumin is often used whole in Indian or Middle Eastern cooking, though in America it is probably more commonly experienced as a ground-up spice used in Mexican cuisine.

I think stereotypes are circular. They may have a hint of truth at some point, yes. However, as future generations are accustomed to those stereotypes, even in humor, if they can identify with that aforementioned group, they will more than likely conform to those expectations. Stereotypes are nothing more than self-fulfilling prophesies.

I guess you ascribe much less autonomy to individual human beings than I do. But I think I already knew that...

Why don't you two meet up and have a beer? You're in the same neighborhood, practically!

Melon, how's the facial paralysis?
