1. I’m sorry for coming across so strongly.

2. The lie of omission, as in keeping one's mouth shut.

3. We can't get along in groups.

4. All women like children. And if you don't, there's something wrong with you.

5. Weight.

6. No, I'm really not hungry.

7. No, I don't want dessert.

8. Intelligence, as in dumbing ourselves down.

9. Our real hair colour, even in its glorious grey.

10. Physical strength and capabilities.

11. Competitiveness.

12. Math and computer skills.

13. I don't like sex/don't have a sex drive.

21. Age.

22. I can't be the sole/primary earner of the household without there being something wrong.

Wow. Just wow. And here I thought you didn't care so much about how the rest *men* of the world judged you *women*. Mirror those ideals and you would get a list of things that doesn't apply to most men either, just the loud ones who think their opinion is the only one that matters. Wow.
