MEN OR WOMEN? WHOSE MORE COMPLICATED?

By complicated I mean whose harder to understand, whose unable to articulate their thoughts, whose thoughts are less cohesive, whose less trustworthy, whose more needy, who has more emotional difficulties, whose less adept at dealing with multiple situations and personalities and whose just all out fucked up in the head. Generally speaking of course. hmmm

Most of what you listed here isn't "complicated"...it's just plain fucked in the head lol nod

And much like the other thread, I'd say both have their equal share of complications to figure out. I will also say, though, that men tend to not need as much "reading between the lines" as women will tend to need lol...

Take bisexuals for instance. A woman bisexual usually knows and admits that she's a bisexual. A male bisexual will get his dick sucked by another male and still claim he's straight. Women have always seemed to have their heads more together than men and can accept things more than men.

Women can usually deal with finding out that their child is gay and accept it more than a man. Women can usually accept that their daughter is dating someone of another race more than a man. Women just seem to have their heads more together than men.

And when we get sick. Women can usually function and keep on going where men act like the world is coming to an end if they get a little case of the sniffles (myself included). lol

The first two points seem geared more to men being more confused than complicated lol lol...

As for being sick, if a woman is sick men tend to expect her to not miss a beat and keep doing everything she's doing lol...she could be throwing up in the toilet and the man would come in and say "Honey, did you iron my shirt yet?"...The flip of that coin, though, is that a man gets sick and the mothering instincts come out in most women...hte guy could sneeze once and it's "You need to lay down! You need to take better care of yourself! Do you need anything? Let me make you some soup! You just rest!" lol...Apparently it's a co-dependency at work there wink

nod all good points. you would think that since men generally run things that they would be less complicated and have their heads together but I guess absolute power really does corrupt absolutely. or some shit.

I think women typically count on being able to work around -- or manipulate, if necessary -- men by our egos.

lol

It's funny: I recently complained to a cashier about her colleague's lack of professionalism. She responded by complimenting my tie and shirt combination!!! As if she was certain that would make my day.

I think it breaks down along visual/auditory learning than anything else, but that's just me.

People who are very visual or very auditory, while they can be very learned, don't seem to be complicated to me. They're very straight forward, and it's easy to see how they tick.

People who learn through a combination of visual/auditory means are much more complex. It's very hard for me to pin down just exactly how they'll react to something or what ideas they will come up with.

Also, complicated folks appear more prone to depression. So more times than not, if a person seems peppy and happy, I tend to think of them as not complicated. This of course has no baring on whether they are intelligent or not as a complicated person to me means specifically that they are hard to predict, read, or that their motivations and drives are hard to understand--not that they are smarter.



I myself am a very complicated person. Brooding, pensive, and utterly complex and shit.

very true.

Though I have straight friends who would have slept with me in a heartbeat and I swear through my teeth they are straight. THey just have 'slip-ups'. falloff

I'm not even going to bother to explain, but I think some men out there know straight men who from time to time get curious but just don't have any desire to have relationships or anything meaningful with another man.

First of all, I am a chick so there's that first hand experience for ya.

harder to understand-I am a woman and I don't get us. The men in my life: not a problem. I will never understand why women play games with men and each other and just don't say what they really mean. WTf is up with that?


whose unable to articulate their thoughts-women again. again I don't understand games like women want men to be mind readers and get pissed when men can't read minds.

whose thoughts are less cohesive -see above.

whose less trustworthy-i think this one is just a joke. I am a woman. I've done some stuff. I trust some women but not as a whole.

whose more needy-another joke. women are the absolute worse. guys can go off be by themselves but if he is in a relationship, don't pull that or his woman will trip.

who has more emotional difficulties-women. it's not really our fault though. It's kind of built in but it manifests itself in the things a lot of women I know find important. the gossip, the tearing other women down. emotionally secure people don't need to do that shit.

whose less adept at dealing with multiple situations and personalities-WOMEN. they make a judgment about you from first sight.

whose just all out fucked up in the head-Wo-MEN. I've never met a man as insecure as women are.

goddamn, Ivy lol

I agree with much of it. I used to think gay men where complicated, but I think they're largely simple as straight men are. They're attracted to masculine men, and many of them claim to be masculine themselves, but once you strip all the pretense and machismo posturing away, they're just little girls lol

I think in large there are always a good number of people who go against the grain so it's hard to say who's more or less complicated for me. If women were complicated, it wouldn't have been so easy for me to manipulate so many when I was younger. And goddamn, was it ever easy.

I can think of examples that are all men, all based on the men in my family.

WAY more messed up with emotions - they can't express them so it all muddles together and comes out as anger at the most inappropriate times.

WAY more needy - can't be alone, can't live alone, could never take care of themselves.

less trustworthy - this is men by a long shot.

I think in general women tend to be MUCH more communicative than your typical straight male.

Again, all of this just tells us none of it boils down to gender lines.



btw - how would we feel about the question if it were posed as who's more complicated, trustworthy, etc. black or white people? confused

I agree with much of it. I used to think gay men where complicated, but I think they're largely simple as straight men are. They're attracted to masculine men, and many of them claim to be masculine themselves, but once you strip all the pretense and machismo posturing away, they're just little girls lol

I think in large there are always a good number of people who go against the grain so it's hard to say who's more or less complicated for me. If women were complicated, it wouldn't have been so easy for me to manipulate so many when I was younger. And goddamn, was it ever easy.
Men are even less complicated when it comes to sex. if 2 guys want to get down, they get down. women get too wrapped up in what someone else will think about them.

First of all, I am a chick so there's that first hand experience for ya.

harder to understand-I am a woman and I don't get us. The men in my life: not a problem. I will never understand why women play games with men and each other and just don't say what they really mean. WTf is up with that?


whose unable to articulate their thoughts-women again. again I don't understand games like women want men to be mind readers and get pissed when men can't read minds.

whose thoughts are less cohesive -see above.

whose less trustworthy-i think this one is just a joke. I am a woman. I've done some stuff. I trust some women but not as a whole.

whose more needy-another joke. women are the absolute worse. guys can go off be by themselves but if he is in a relationship, don't pull that or his woman will trip.

who has more emotional difficulties-women. it's not really our fault though. It's kind of built in but it manifests itself in the things a lot of women I know find important. the gossip, the tearing other women down. emotionally secure people don't need to do that shit.

whose less adept at dealing with multiple situations and personalities-WOMEN. they make a judgment about you from first sight.

whose just all out fucked up in the head-Wo-MEN. I've never met a man as insecure as women are.




See Im a woman and I've had almost the total opposite experience. I find that guys never mean what they say or say what they mean and get all butt pissed when you call them on it.

The women folk in my life are easy to figure out. Not to say they aren't difficult to deal with at times but I get the neurosis so I can leave em alone for a couple weeks and its all good.

I think women are very articulate but we cover so much ground when we talk for some not used to it (men) the point gets lost. Men on the other hand are the most inarticulate mofos. I mean its like they start sentences and don't finish them or everything is commenced with an "i don't know". They do no but are afraid to say. Then there's the whole inattentive shit. In one ear and out the other. There brains literally can't handle more than one concept at a time. I can talk about a dozen subjects in under 5 minutes


I think ur right that men are better adept at being alone or without female company but it doesn't last long. They eventually turn into needy brats. Women on the other hand say they want companionship but get very irritated once they have it. Some weird eternal search for perfection maybe.


the multiple situation? hmm. i think we tie on that. it depends on what situation and what personality. but i think overall women are better at multitasking than men. households wouldn't be run by them if this weren't the case.


all fucked up in the head? Eh my vote goes to men. Women don't do half the fucked up shit they do. I mean they run the world and its a total armpit!!

Well, if you go by conventional humor, it's women by a longshot lol...




*****

A man is walking along the seashore when he comes upon an interesting looking old bottle. As he attempts to brush the dirt off of it a genie pops out. The genie says, "look, I'm really busy and only have time to grant you one wish, so make it good." The man says, "Well, I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm deathly afraid of flying and I'm scared to sail on boats. I want you to make a long bridge that extends from California to Hawaii."

The genie says, "I don't know about that. Thats a mighty big order, even for a genie. What would your second wish have been." "Well", says the man, "I'd like to know everything I need to know to understand women."

To which the genie immediately replied, "Did you want that to be 2 lane or 4 lane?"

I can think of examples that are all men, all based on the men in my family.

WAY more messed up with emotions - they can't express them so it all muddles together and comes out as anger at the most inappropriate times.

WAY more needy - can't be alone, can't live alone, could never take care of themselves.

less trustworthy - this is men by a long shot.

Anywho, I am sure if I thought long and hard about it, I could probably come up with one or two guys like you describe. My experience with women is more like I described. a long time ago, I decided I probably could not live as a lesbian because women as a whole suck to me. For every gem, there are ten assholes. That's my truth.

I gotta say, NONE of what you detailed here equates to being "complicated". Men are more complicated because they're not as good at multi-tasking? lol confuse...Men are more complicated because they're inarticulate? lol confuse...Men are more complicated because their brains can't handle more than one concept at a time? lol confuse...

Sounds more like you're describing "stupid" than "complicated" nod...And stupid people tend not to be very complicated beings, actually.

Maybe "complicated" isn't the word you're wanting to use for whatever point you're wanting to make about the menfolk cool...

My guess would be that it's been shown that there really are biological and physiological differences between the genders that effect how each one perceives their environment and expresses their thoughts and feelings...as where there hasn't been anything that shows skin pigmentation effects us in those same ways.

so your perception is I am sharing and perpetuating stereotypes based on gender?

Sorry but that is bullshit. All I have to go on is what has happened to me in my life, what my male friends tell me about women and my view of the world in general.

"You look tense, let me give you a massage." = I want to fondle you.
"What's wrong?" = I don't see why you are making such a big deal out of this.
"What's wrong?" = What meaningless self-inflicted psychological trauma are you going through now?
"What's wrong?" = I guess sex tonight is out of the question.
"I'm bored." = Do you want to have sex?
"I love you." = Let's have sex now.
"I love you, too." = Okay, I said it...we'd better have sex now!
"Yes, I like the way you cut your hair." = I liked it better before.
"Yes, I like the way you cut your hair." = $50 and it doesn't look that much different!
"Let's talk." = I am trying to impress you by showing that I am a deep person so that you'd like to have sex with me.
"Will you marry me?" = I want to make it illegal for you to have sex with other guys.
(while shopping) "I like that one better." = Pick any freakin' dress and let's go home!

See Im a woman and I've had almost the total opposite experience. I find that guys never mean what they say or say what they mean and get all butt pissed when you call them on it.

The women folk in my life are easy to figure out. Not to say they aren't difficult to deal with at times but I get the neurosis so I can leave em alone for a couple weeks and its all good.

I think women are very articulate but we cover so much ground when we talk for some not used to it (men) the point gets lost. Men on the other hand are the most inarticulate mofos. I mean its like they start sentences and don't finish them or everything is commenced with an "i don't know". They do no but are afraid to say. Then there's the whole inattentive shit. In one ear and out the other. There brains literally can't handle more than one concept at a time. I can talk about a dozen subjects in under 5 minutes


I think ur right that men are better adept at being alone or without female company but it doesn't last long. They eventually turn into needy brats. Women on the other hand say they want companionship but get very irritated once they have it. Some weird eternal search for perfection maybe.


the multiple situation? hmm. i think we tie on that. it depends on what situation and what personality. but i think overall women are better at multitasking than men. households wouldn't be run by them if this weren't the case.


all fucked up in the head? Eh my vote goes to men. Women don't do half the fucked up shit they do. I mean they run the world and its a total armpit!!

I gotta say, NONE of what you detailed here equates to being "complicated". Men are more complicated because they're not as good at multi-tasking? lol confuse...Men are more complicated because they're inarticulate? lol confuse...Men are more complicated because their brains can't handle more than one concept at a time? lol confuse...

Sounds more like you're describing "stupid" than "complicated" nod...And stupid people tend not to be very complicated beings, actually.

Maybe "complicated" isn't the word you're wanting to use for whatever point you're wanting to make about the menfolk cool...


...a "complicated" edit.

I don't consider men stupid at all. Stupid means u are incapable of learning; a birth defect if you will. Men (generally speaking) are very smart as are women - just smart in different ways. I gave my definition of complicated in the initial thread post. Complicated is a relative term which is why some orgers say men are more complicated and some say women. Its all about understanding. In reality our ability to understand and figure out the opposite sex depends on our knowledge of the prototypes...basically the first models who tend to be our parents. They teach us alot about men and women.

Our opinions about the opposite sex are also clouded/skewed by our own gender. Clearly our brains aren't wired the same so we spend quite a bit of time trying to understand the other.

The point I'm trying to make about the men folk is that I find them to be more complicated overall. All the food and sex stuff aside; that's just animal instinct really and we all get it. They still IMO speak a different language, tend to be stuck in their own head most of the time, tend to see the world from only their perspective and when they yield to another person/situtation which is rare, it's not because its a moral or ethical thing to do but rather it benefits them in some way. I will do "this" because it will get me "that" sort of mentality.

Women are less complicated IMO but purposely more difficult. Women are easy to figure out. They want to feel loved, appreciated, pretty, and smart. And most important. They want to be heard no matter how insipid or important the message they try and convey. Yep that's what I think.

Now a woman will probably read this thru and analyze and debate the comments after honestly giving them serious thought. A man will scan it for select words, make a comment that has nothing to do with what I just said or he'll scratch his balls and say "i don't get it." J/k lol

That doesn't sound like a smart person to me lol.

To be honest, I think that men are easier to figure out than women are, and that might be more in line in thinking that once you DO figure out a man, you've figured him out for life. However, with a woman, once you've figured her out she changes the rules 3 months later lol...

One last joking comment on the subject lol:


Let's say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else.

And then, one evening when they're driving home, a thought occurs to Elaine, and without really thinking, she says it aloud: ''Do you realize that, as of tonight, we've been seeing each other for exactly six months?''

And then there is silence in the car. To Elaine, it seems like a very loud silence. She thinks to herself: "Geez, I wonder if it bothers him that I said that. Maybe he's been feeling confined by our relationship; maybe he thinks I'm trying to push him into some kind of obligation that he doesn't want, or isn't sure of."

And Roger is thinking: "Gosh. Six months."

And Elaine is thinking: "But, hey, I'm not so sure I want this kind of relationship, either. Sometimes I wish I had a little more space, so I'd have time to think about whether I really want us to keep going the way we are, moving steadily toward . . . I mean, where are we going? Are we just going to keep seeing each other at this level of intimacy? Are we heading toward marriage? Toward children? Toward a lifetime together? Am I ready for that level of commitment? Do I really even know this person?"

And Roger is thinking: ". . . so that means it was . . . let's see . . February when we started going out, which was right after I had the car at the dealer's, which means . . . lemme check the odometer . . . Whoa! I am way overdue for an oil change here."

And Elaine is thinking: "He's upset. I can see it on his face. Maybe I'm reading this completely wrong. Maybe he wants more from our relationship, more intimacy, more commitment; maybe he has sensed -- even before I sensed it -- that I was feeling some reservations. Yes, I bet that's it. That's why he's so reluctant to say anything about his own feelings. He's afraid of being rejected."

And Roger is thinking: "And I'm gonna have them look at the transmission again. I don't care what those morons say, it's still not shifting right."

And Elaine is thinking: "He's angry. And I don't blame him. I'd be angry, too. I feel so guilty, putting him through this, but I can't help the way I feel. I'm just not sure."

And Roger is thinking: "They'll probably say it's only a 90- day warranty. That's exactly what they're gonna say, the scumballs."

And Elaine is thinking: "maybe I'm just too idealistic, waiting for a knight to come riding up on his white horse, when I'm sitting right next to a perfectly good person, a person I enjoy being with, a person I truly do care about, a person who seems to truly care about me. A person who is in pain because of my self-centered, schoolgirl romantic fantasy."

And Roger is thinking: "Warranty? They want a warranty? I'll give them a warranty. I'll take their warranty and stick it right up their ..."

''Roger,'' Elaine says aloud.

''What?'' says Roger, startled.

''Please don't torture yourself like this,'' she says, her eyes beginning to brim with tears. ''Maybe I should never have . . Oh, I feel so.....''

(She breaks down, sobbing.)

''What?'' says Roger.

''I'm such a fool,'' Elaine sobs. ''I mean, I know there's no knight. I really know that. It's silly. There's no knight, and there's no horse.''

''There's no horse?'' says Roger.

''You think I'm a fool, don't you?'' Elaine says.

''No!'' says Roger, glad to finally know the correct answer.

''It's just that . . . It's that I . . . I need some time,'' Elaine says.

(There is a 15-second pause while Roger, thinking as fast as he can, tries to come up with a safe response. Finally he comes up with one that he thinks might work.)

''Yes,'' he says.

(Elaine, deeply moved, touches his hand.)

''Oh, Roger, do you really feel that way?'' she says.

'What way?'' says Roger.

"That way about time,'' says Elaine.

''Oh,'' says Roger. ''Yes.''

(Elaine turns to face him and gazes deeply into his eyes, causing him to become very nervous about what she might say next. At last she speaks.)

''Thank you, Roger,'' she says.

''Thank you,'' says Roger.

Then he takes her home, and she lies on her bed, a conflicted, tortured soul, and weeps until dawn, whereas when Roger gets back to his place, he opens a bag of Doritos, turns on the TV, and immediately becomes deeply involved in a rerun of a tennis match between two Czechoslovakians he never heard of. A tiny voice in the far recesses of his mind tells him that something major was going on back there in the car, but he is pretty sure there is no way he would ever understand what, and so he figures it's better if he doesn't think about it.

The next day Elaine will call her closest friend, or perhaps two of them, and they will talk about this situation for six straight hours. In painstaking detail, they will analyze everything she said and everything he said, going over it time and time again, exploring every word, expression, and gesture for nuances of meaning, considering every possible ramification. They will continue to discuss this subject, off and on, for weeks, maybe months, never reaching any definite conclusions, but never getting bored with it, either.

Meanwhile, Roger, while playing racquetball one day with a mutual friend of his and Elaine's, will pause just before serving, and say:

"Norm, did Elaine ever own a horse?''

But out of curiosity, what are the numerous shortcomings that you see women as having?



There's a difference between stupid and ignorant. My comments that you mention are attributable to ignornace and I think men are highly ignorant. The inarticulateness, lack of multi-tasking, not considering or handling multiple concepts and being needy brats are things they can change but choose not to IMO. The dozen subjects in under 5 minutes was a remark about myself and other than me mum, I don't know too many women who can do that. lol

If men were stupid, all of my comments/observations about them would be rooted in their biology and they wouldn't be able to help it if they tried.


Numerous shortcomings of women? Hmm let's see:


1. Perpetual insecurity often masked as self-grandiosity
2. Jealous
3. Catty
4. Verbose
5. Highly and continuously stressed (although i think this is biological or even hormonal)
6. lack appreciation and respect for their own kind.

the last statement irks me to no end. I really think we are our own worst enemy and don't stick up for one another and are in constant competition with each other. I don't know if its always been this way or if this is cultural or even some weird evolutionary joke. Other female mammals seem to be harmonious but human females? hell to the naw. I still love my sex tho. Fuckin' bitches tho they may be. falloff

Since ignorance is "the absence of knowledge" I don't think things like an inability to talk in complete sentences or being unable to multi-task can be chalked up to ignorance lol...unless you're claiming that men do not have the knowledge of how to form complete sentences.wink (or how to do more than one thing at a time, which if you've ever run a business or a corporation, both definitely require the ability to multi-task).

Well...

1. Men are very much capable of articulating their thoughts, but still harder to understand.

Our country was founded by MEN. Somehow, I doubt even the story about Adam and Eve was made by a woman. For a period of time, women weren't even permitted to read. Men (primarily in almost every culture other than some native american ones...) made one thing historically clear: They find themselves superior, and because they find themselves superior, I think they want the "inferior" to serve them.

BUT on the flip side, our constitution has 27 amendments....men changed their minds 27 different times, and on the 19th time they gave us a say on how things should be run. What do men REALLY want?

I don't think women really have a problem ariculation their thoughts, it's just we are a bit more sentimental about things. Perfect example, a woman would probably remember an anniversary rather than the man. It may not be that they find it less important, it's just-I'm very much guessing- the men are just happy for the now, which is ok. Women just have a bad habit of assuming that men have the same feelings as her; thus, many say that women want men to read their minds.

2. I want to instinctively say that men are less trustworthy, but I'll explain my doubts in a minute.

So far, I have found (from observation), that guys will do wrong when there is an incentive involved....
I think a man's betrayal is only more blatant.

Women on the otherhand can be passive aggressive at times. They are capable of randomly blowing your brains out, but this is only when provoked (I hope)...but I think, in general, if it were a thing about being trusted not to eat the cookie, women are better are restraining themselves.

3. Women are WAY better at dealing with different situations and personalities.

Of course there is the crazy bitch who tries to control people in order to prevent change, but that role is usually taken by the men.

Men (primarily in almost every culture other than some native american ones...) made one thing historically clear: They find themselves superior, and because they find themselves superior, I think they want the "inferior" to serve them.

BUT on the flip side, our constitution has 27 amendments....men changed their minds 27 different times, and on the 19th time they gave us a say on how things should be run. What do men REALLY want?

I don't think women really have a problem ariculation their thoughts, it's just we are a bit more sentimental about things. Perfect example, a woman would probably remember an anniversary rather than the man. It may not be that they find it less important, it's just-I'm very much guessing- the men are just happy for the now, which is ok. Women just have a bad habit of assuming that men have the same feelings as her; thus, many say that women want men to read their minds.

2. I want to instinctively say that men are less trustworthy, but I'll explain my doubts in a minute.

So far, I have found (from observation), that guys will do wrong when there is an incentive involved....
I think a man's betrayal is only more blatant.

Women on the otherhand can be passive aggressive at times. They are capable of randomly blowing your brains out, but this is only when provoked (I hope)...but I think, in general, if it were a thing about being trusted not to eat the cookie, women are better are restraining themselves.

3. Women are WAY better at dealing with different situations and personalities.

Of course there is the crazy bitch who tries to control people in order to prevent change, but that role is usually taken by the men.



This isn't altogether true....throw in the "your man is cheating" angle, and all the above goes STRAIGHT OUT THE WINDOW!!!
