My husband always tells me when he makes stupid comments to me because he loves me. What a sick love we must have.

It's not just men who do that. Women do too.

But whoever does it, it's because of something wrong in them, not something wrong in the person they're speaking to.

I agree.

Yes, there are plenty of Neanderthals out there, but if you look really hard, you can find the good ones too. Including my hunky hubby. He always treats me with respect, and values my point of view on any subject. :)

So, I think it's mutual.

Plus you are a lovely, honest, and quite charming human being! You see if I was the pig that all men are I would say something like-my god that picture in your profile is that you? You are incredibly beautiful and have a great smile and sparkly bright eyes. Thank the Lord of Macho I cannot either see or feel beyond my pringy thingy!!!!!

Q: Why Do Men Torture Women with their Odd, Critical or Snide Comments?

A: Because their mothers didn't love them enough, they got picked on in grade school, and they have short, thin penises.

Well I am against violence-er-um-hell why not and yup!!!! Of course being a woman of great intellect and high moral standing you could probably rip him to shreads with your mind-that is of course and this is the problem-if he is in fact capable of understanding what you are saying and who has in fact been pooping in the buckwheat.

To be completely honest, that sounds much more like something *I* would do rather than my husband. He's a pretty good guy. Now, what does that say about *me*?

Nevermind, maybe I don't want to know....

My ex did the same thing. Emphasis on "ex".

I think guys who do this are compensating for something. I'll let you work out what, exactly.

ETA: Everyone does it now and then. But some people can't seem to open their mouths without something nasty coming out. And, like others have said, there are a lot of women who are just as guilty as guys.

My husband was listening to my girlfriend the other week bitching about her husband. No matter what she did for the past week, it seemed like he was downing her. She wanted to hear something nice. My husband, with his witty charm, tells us if her husband did so he would be breaking the "code". We cracked up laughing. Somehow we knew he was probably being somewhat honest. All my friends have always figured there was a "Manly Manual" men are brought up on. Like the invisible secret bible for men only.

Years back a couple of friends and I were chatting in my kitchen. The moon was full and most of our men seemed to be on the rag. Each saying similar snide remarks to us, making us feel bad. My daughter who was around 6 at the time, walks in and calmly says "that's from page 23 of the Manly Manual". We all cracked up. Seems we'd been joking about the Manly Manual and on what page you could find a particular statement on for so long, it was embedded in my daughters mind. She's now 23 and still refers to the manual, passing its existance onto her girlfriends. I just have to laugh.

Yes, I think men have a secret society manual that they all use. That's why so many of us hear the same lines. Some are more addicted to its use than others, but it's there.........I just know it.

I have searched the WHOLE house!

Someone quite wise once said that once the search is over and can be given up that the quest is almost always answered!!

When Mr. Vagabond and I first got together, he "pre-apologized" for all the "stupid stuff" he'd say over the years. I swear, he really did do this.

He tells me that it's not because he is being insensitive, it's because (in his words, not mine) "Guys are cavemen. We have no tact and even less sense."

My husband has a tendancy to take whatever side is opposite of mine (fight at work, annoying sales clerk, whatever) so I tell him he's supposed to support ME, not the person who pissed me off! When he gets out of hand (not too often) I remind him that we're on the same team and he's supposed to be nice to me. That usually snaps him back on track.

"critial"? What's the matter little girlie, nobody teach ya how to spell? Too busy daydreaming about being a pampered pink-ribboned princess living in a fairytale castle among the clouds to pay attention in class, huh?

How'd I guess.

I love you too. And this time please don't smack me on the ass on my way to the kitchen. It really does not make me want to get you a beer any more than I already want to get it for you. I'm not going out on the playing field, there, coach. A pat on the ass isn't the Push I need to get the job done. Just ask for a beer next time, k.

Thanks, <wink>

words like razors defend the heart
against the power of fear

generated by love.

or in other words - if I smack you first it won't hurt as much when you smack me later.

Offense as defense.

(with a good dash of stupidity throw in)

I'm kidding. WTF do I know about it? Nada.
