This Study Of Gendered Words Used On Facebook Looks Pretty Dismal On Both Ends

Socio-linguistic analysis of words we use on Facebook

Gender stereotypes: let’s pretend, for a moment, that they exist for a reason, reason being that they are sometimes (sometimes) applicable. The largest analysis ever undertaken of words we use on Facebook, a socio-linguistic study published by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Cambridge University, produced “strong results” emerging from the analysis aligning with “past studies of gender.” It’s up to the individual to draw their own conclusion from what is presented in front of them, and that conclusion may very well be, “holy shit, we are all just horrible boilerplate human Internet stereotypes.” It’s really up to you.

9 Unexpected Ways Boys Are Really … Girls

I have lived with a male roommate (platonically) for almost a year now. And boy-oh-boy has it taught me a lot about boys. Most things I already knew, that they are generally messy, that they would rather pay you to do dishes than do it themselves, and that they hate watching Four Weddings marathons.

What I wasn’t prepared for, however, is how much boys have in common with girls. After much discussion with my friends, I have come up with a list of 8 ways this is true. Read more at College Candy…

5 Menswear Blogs You Should Know About Right Now

Beyond the glossy magazines lies a vast blogosphere dedicated to helping men dress better. And like most areas of cyberspace, much of it is a mishmash of uninspiring dribble inserted into a sea of second-rate snapshots. But it’s not all bad news.

These are the up-and-comers that are worth a couple of clicks. Read more at Ask Men…

Man Gives Mega-Detailed Document To Ladies On Erroneous Assumption You Can Reason Your Way To Love

What you do if you received a disconcertingly detailed 99-page document about someone before you’d even been on one date with him? You wouldn’t go on that date, would you? You also might show that crazy thing to your friends, who might then forward it to Gawker, which is how we got the document that I am about to show you.

A man Gawker has dubbed “the Mad Bachelor of Australia” (or “Oz,” for short) is gaining viral fame for the massive document he’s been giving potential girlfriends in advance of their first date. (You can view the whole thing here.) In addition to information on his upbringing, education, and workout habits, it has an incredibly detailed checklist about what kind of woman he is looking for (no smokers, prudes or druggies!), what his penis is like (big!) and how he likes to have sex.

Forget the drawer, clear out space in your makeup bag if your man is moving in. According to a recent survey of a thousand millennial-age men, guys have officially become more comfortable adopting the grooming habits of women. As many as 60 percent of men now use women’s skincare products, with 14 percent okaying nail polish, 18 percent foundation, and 12 percent eyeliner.

We’re not sure whether to thank Jared Leto, or Captain Jack Sparrow for this change of heart.
