why is there a double standard....

Men can fart and it's funny, etc...
But, a woman farts and it's "just wrong"!!
We have the SAME digestive system... we are all the same from the time food enters until the time it exits!! What gives??

  • I fart and I don't care :D it's natural to fart! anyone that is grossed out by it is a hypocrite. Are they grossed out when they do it too?

  • Women are overrated now. It's not wrong for men to have hairy legs, hairy armpits etc. It's fine for men to wear baggy clothes and look good, but if a woman wears them she has "let herself go." Men can show their tits (Even if they're overweight and have boobs), because women aren't all perverted about it.

  • My husband hates when anyone farts. He actually gets up and out of bed if he needs to fart. Odd huh?

  • Well, if women are suppose to be more lady-like, then why can't men be more genterlan-like? Mmhmm.
    How about this. It's HUMAN-LIKE to FART, and when the need comes, I, or anyone else should not have to hold it in and get all crampy with gas (I've did that before), to be more "lady-like."

  • I am smiling. My hubby thinks it is so gross when I fart or burp. Even our girls as infants he was grossed out. He has two sister and is shocked and grossed out to know that they of us all fart and burp. My oldest is getting to the age were farts and burps are funny, it is killing him. Which makes it all the funny for me.    laughing
