Women Debate Why There Are Significantly Less Female Serial Killers Than Male

It's no secret that women have become super obsessed with true crime stories. While women aren't the main gender featured in these stories as the perpetrators, women consume the content more than men, interestingly enough. In an AskWomen thread, a Redditor asked other female Redditors why they think there are fewer female serial killers than males. While some women said that it's because men are forced to bottle up their emotions, others said that women just might be better at getting away with murder than men because they're less likely to be suspected, or perhaps they're just more calculated.

Things People Secretly Envy About The Other Gender

Even though we're nowhere near to reaching complete gender equality, both genders definitely have their perks in different contexts. And you can't help but wonder what it might be like to experience certain things as the opposite gender. Would everything be different? Probably not. But there are clearly certain things that are easier for or more fun for one gender over the other, and therefore we envy.

Men Confess The Things They Wish They Could Do, Even Though It's 'Unmanly'

Gender roles are seriously getting so old, and every time we think some serious progress had been made, a thread like this shows up and we are confronted with the fact that we still have a loooong way to go. Yes, we've come a long way from 'boys wear blue and girls wear pink,' or 'boys don't cry.' But these social norms didn't just disappear into thin air. Even if they're not pushed onto us as overtly as, say, the 50's, doesn't mean the ideas don't linger into our minds every time we make a decision about what to wear, or how to sit. 

Basically, things are better, but we haven't entirely broken strict expectations for gender expression. But one day we will, as Miley Cyrus once said, "It's the climb."

What Men Really Want But Will Never Actually Admit Out Loud

A lot of the time people like to assume they know exactly what men want and care about. It is not uncommon to hear a group of women saying, 'Oh, men only want this.' Obviously, though, there are plenty of things that women don't actually understand about men, just as it goes vice versa. There is no simpler gender, all humans are complex and capable of having deeper wishes and dreams. And that 'one thing' that people often say men only care about... well women care about it a whole lot too. And that's the tea.

On Reddit, men are sharing the things they actually want, but don't often get to say out loud, and it's surprisingly wholesome.

Guy Ruins Wife's Expensive Gender Reveal On Social Media, She Deems It Unforgivable

In my humble opinion, one of the worst trends that social media has perpetuated in the last few years is the gender reveal party. Never has there been a worse excuse to celebrate something that doesn't need celebrating. Parents, trust me, aside from you and possibly your parents, no one else is as invested in the sex of your baby. Let me say that again for the people at the back: NO ONE CARES! People have taken the trend way too far, spending insane amounts of money revealing the gender of their baby, and the madness needs to stop. One father, who also clearly feels the same, wrote to Reddit's Am I The Asshole after sabotaging his wife's $4K elaborate gender reveal plan for their unborn (spoiler alert) son. He posted the gender on Facebook instead, which left his wife understandably gutted. People commented with mixed reviews, some calling him an asshole for sabotaging his wife's announcement in the way he did, but others congratulated him for putting a stop to spending so much money on the gender reveal. What do you think? Asshole or not?

The Most Ridiculous Products Targeted Towards Women

The marketing industry is one industry, selling women sh*t they definitely don't need since the beginning of time. Who's ready to go on an online shopping spree, where we ogle all things "for women" that don't really make sense? Then again, who are we to say what doesn't make sense for women? I'm sure some of you out there might actually be down for the products listed below. Perhaps they are the height of fashion, but I'm personally going in literally the opposite direction of these products. Except for maybe the booty wipes. They sound extremely innovative. Anyhoo, scroll down for my personal take on the most ridiculous products targeted towards women.

Objects Which Were Pointlessly Gendered

Society might have come a long way in terms of gender equality, but we still have a long way to go regarding gender stereotypes. Taking a toy or object that is no more useful for girls or boys, but making it pink or blue and marketing it toward one gender, can have many negative impacts on how children see the world and shape their identities. It risks reinforcing archaic or harmful generalizations about the behaviors and characteristics attributed to women and men, which, in 2021, shouldn't fly. These pictures of pointlessly gendered objects prove how much companies are profiting off these ridiculous pink and blue marketing strategies. And when you're done scrolling, here are some more objects which were victims of gender stereotyping

Objects Which Were Pointlessly Gendered

The world might have come a long way in terms of gender equality, but it is by no means there yet. Gender imbalances and stereotypes show up in our everyday lives in such subtle ways that we often don't notice them.  We have gendered toys thrown in our faces from a young age; pink everything for girls and blue everything for boys. Unfortunately, when society enforces such labels and puts boxes around genders, it only reinforces outdated and toxic ideas about femininity and masculinity. These objects are a case in point; they are gendered for no reason other than to sell them at an inflated price. Because god forbid, a boy used a pink tea bag.

"Gender-Neutral" Has Made Its Way Into The Cookie World

To be completely honest, we never even thought of Gingerbread man cookies as even having a gender, regardless of having "man" in their title. They were just cookies, in our eyes, delicious cookies that belonged in our bellies. 

The year is 2019 and cookies are getting the non-gender treatment. 

A cafe in New Zealand, The Tannery, went viral after the owner renamed his selection of gingerbread men cookies to "gender-neutral gingerbread person" cookies. The owner, Andre Cettina, was inspired to make the change to the classic cookie when a customer asked, "why the human-shaped snacks were called 'gingerbread men' and not 'gingerbread people'."
