Women can’t be funny
We probably listen two hundred times when a female describes the guy she’s dating saying that he’s so funny.
However when a male friend describes the lady he’s dating he would talk about her body, her personality, her kindness but we never hear a man adding ‘Oh and by the way, she’s so funny’.
And the reason why is very simple; because women are not funny.
There is never true humor in women, if ever anything does appear comical or ridiculous in a woman it is more like stupidity.
Women are raised not to be funny.
From young ages boys are allowed to be loud and tell jokes and be annoying while girls are encouraged to act like ladies.
And ladies sit quietly and decidedly do not draw attention to them.
Women are also prettier than men so why would they bother developing any other personality aspects since they already have everything they need to get ahead in life.
This is not to say that women are humorless or cannot enjoy joking.
Humor, after all, is a symptom of intelligence and women laugh at almost anything, often precisely because they are extremely astute.
The fact that so many men choose being funny over being with someone who’s funny is part of a wider point on jokes and gender roles.
In a way, humor gives power and since power is something we associate with men, humor is therefore seen as more of a masculine than a feminine quality.
Culturally for a woman to say a man is funny is the equivalent of a man saying that a woman is pretty.
A recent study from the University of San Francisco found that only 20 percent of jokes made by female bosses caused laughter while a full 96 percent of jokes by male bosses did.
And if you’ve ever heard a male boss tell a joke you know this isn’t down to the fact that they are entertaining.
The whole idea of male humor depends on the notion that women are never really the boss but mere objects.
The physical structure of the human being is a joke in itself.
And life is always funny and maybe is not by coincidence that men and women tend to refer to life itself as a bitch.
Humor, if we are to be serious about it, arises from the ineluctable fact that we are all born into a losing struggle called life.
And the latest tragedy in life is that for men, the two things they prize the most, women and humor, can’t come together.
the world must know the truth!
