Why are men so narrow-minded?

My husband was telling me how wrong it is that women burp and fart. I tell him it's natural, we women eat the same crap as men and it processes the same in our bodies just like it does with men. He feels it's unnatural for women to be able to do this. This isn't the first time I've heard this from a man either. It's not like I fart on purpose I try not to fart around him. He freaks if I let one out around him but yet he feels it's okay to let out his bodily gas around me and laugh his ass off when it stinks.
Does anyone else have a narrow minded man like this?

  • It is society's perception that a true LADY does not burp or fart. realistically of course we do. but the PERCEPTION or BELIEF is that a polite woman doesnt do these things. Men are stil given a free pass however to be crass and nasty . LOL Honey this is simply how men have been raised to think. they are NOT any more narrow minded than women are. all you have to do is look around cafemom to see the truth in that

  • Because some men were raised with such sexist view points, and they haven't been detrained yet.

  • My Husband would follow me around when we first met waiting for me to fart! He would notice when I would excuse myself to the bathroom, and push the door open as I farted. Now I am used to farting in front of him, for some reason he wanted me too. He says it is letting him know I am comfortable around him.
