Real Men and Real Women

The five most recent posts on “real men” on Twitter tonight:

“Real men salute me cause I only talk the truth”
“Real men rub they girls feet”
“Real men take bubble baths”
“The boyfriends who still hold bags, open doors, tell their girlfriends they’re beautiful and show respect are real men”
“Real men don’t love the most beautiful girl in the world, they love the girl who can make their world the most beautiful”

The four most recent posts on “real women” on Twitter tonight:

“Sip your wine or any turpentine but that won’t go around here. Real women drink beer.”
“I like real women, but I would also like a surreal woman who produces Capri Sun instead of breast milk during pregnancy.”
“Real women don’t be little their man”
“How do real women look in lingerie? See for yourself.”

But only number five managed to find a nugget of literal truth:

“Sick of hearing what real women are meant to look like. If you’ve got a fanny you’re a woman.”

Real men have a Y chromosome. Real women have two Xes. All the rest is how we want gender to be arranged, not how it actually is.
