Language Barrier

In our politically correct world, it's somewhat taboo to label something as uniquely feminine or masculine. However, there is no escaping the fact that the way women and men speak can be leagues apart. For example, you would probably never hear a guy say "I think I'm retaining water". Admit it, you wouldn't.


It makes me wonder, what other words would you never hear a man dare speak in earnest because of their feminine overtones? On the other side, are there phrases that are so blatantly masculine that a woman merely uttering them drops their femininity down a notch?

Besides the toon and the one you have listed no man would ever ask which shoes go with their outfit. And I am pretty liberal as far as what a woman would say that would unfeminize her but a thirty minute belching, farting, scratching session might make me wonder a bit.

Never from a man, "I wanted to have sex, but I decided we should wait."

Hopefully never from a woman, "You think I should dye my mustache to match my hair?"

Not from a man - Unless he's standing at the base of a ladder "Not now honey, I'm still spotting" should never come out of his mouth. Possibly even "These underwear keep riding up on me" BTW, men don't wear outfits.

Not from a woman - "The hair on my ass is getting out of control!"

Not from a man: "Everything I eat goes straight to my thighs."

Not from a woman: "My jock itches."

Men never say-Do these pants make my butt look big?
Women don't say-That was a chunky one after they belch.

I say to my hubby "Can I borrow your shirt?"

I never want to hear him ask me that though!

Not from a man:

"Let's go see a musical."
"Isn't she a doll?"
"Can we go shopping AGAIN tonight?"

I'm come up with more, but I'm retaining water.

The only time you hear a man say, "I have nothing to wear" is when he literally has nothing to wear because he hasn't done laundry for a month.

Rarely, if ever, heard from a woman..."Jeez, light a match, why dontcha?"
