What I know and What I don’t know… about women
January 7, 2015
I have received several anonymous messages (from the same person maybe?) asking me questions about why women think things, do things, etc. I replied to one the other day thinking it would be clear that I know nothing. Then I got another message mentioning that I have a large % of female followers so I must have some insight.
Yup. It turns out that a large percentage of my followers are female. I don’t know why. I can’t even fathom why or begin to offer an explanation.
Truth be told, when it comes to some things I can clearly explain why women do them. Breathing, for example, is one of those things. I know why women breathe. I know why all humans breathe. I also know why they blink, eat, etc.
When it comes to behaviors I have two thoughts. First thought – I have no idea what motivates other people. Second thought – it’s insane to try to take what we may know about one person in a group and extrapolate that across huge, huge, over 50% of the population sized group.
I don’t know why women post their feelings about sex. I don’t know why women post their intimate thoughts. I don’t know why women post pictures of themselves. I don’t know because….I am not them.
I have been married for 19 years, and I still don’t know completely what motivates my wife. We have the most intimate relationship that I can possibly imagine, and if I can’t answer for her how the hell can I answer for a 20 year old college student whom I have never (and will never) meet?
So I’ll end this rant here. Just sayin’ that I really appreciate interacting with all kinds of people, but that doesn’t mean I can offer insight into their mindset.
