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."

Woman Requires Guests To Bring Expensive Gifts To Her Drive-By Baby Shower

Every culture has its own unique way of celebrating pregnancy, and birth, and sometimes even genders. Some are much more low-key than others. It's all fun and games until there are restrictions on the social gathering, yet people still insist of getting gifted luxurious gifts for their unborn child. Of all the things we do, I think baby showers and gender-reveal parties might be one of the weirdest.  Why do we expect gifts for basically getting laid, or cause literal expositions to announce whether we saw a pee-pee on an ultra-sound?

Marriage is not all mushy rainbows and butterflies. But if you listen to what your wife needs from you, perhaps it can be. You know what they say: happy wife, happy life.

The women of Twitter have never been shy when it comes to sharing their thoughts, and they're all about letting their future husbands know about all their future desires and expectations.

People Roast Themselves By Posting 'My Parents VS Me At The Same Age' Photos On Twitter

If your mom is anything like mine, then you'll have grown up hearing things like, "You don't know how lucky you are; when I was your age, I was working three jobs." Or, "Another date?! What's taking you so long? When I was 26, I was already married to your father and expecting your older brother." It's safe to say that today's young generation lives very differently from how our parents did. Important milestones like getting married and having kids are happening much later on in life, and instead, careers, parties, and social media have taken precedence. To show these stark differences, people are posting pictures on Twitter of them Vs. their parents at the same age, proving just how large the gap between the generations is.

Twitter Roasts Woman For Her Unrealistic Expectations For Men

Everybody has their own preferences about how they want their significant other to present themself. Some people like the e-boy look with their painted nails and hand tattoos. Some people prefer the sporty look where they got on their sweatbands and short shorts. And some people simp over hipsters in beanies, flannels, and aggressive man-buns. There really is someone for everyone. However, just because someone's 'look' isn't your cup of tea, it doesn't change how manly, masculine, or mature they are.

So if you want to avoid being roasted on Twitter, my advice would be: Go ahead, share and celebrate your type, but don't try to use something as superficial as style as a basic standard for what qualifies a 'real man.'

Times Expectations Didn't Line Up With Reality

We're all prone to moments of failure that came out of nothing but the purest of intentions. It'd sure be nice if our lofty expectations always lined up with reality, but alas, we're not so lucky. The universe just loves to humble us right when our egos are getting nice and inflated.

Thai Model Shows Striking 'Instagram Vs Reality' In Side By Side Photos

When it comes to the world of social media, everything looks perfect. But, as we all know, it's all a lie, and nothing is as it seems. The growing movement of influencers exposing the harsh truths behind the seemingly picture-perfect lives we see on Instagram raises awareness of the influencer industry's detrimental effects on consumers. But still, people continue to compare their real lives to the fake ones they perceive to be perfect on Instagram and other social media platforms, which can create body image issues, jealousy, and insecurities, amongst other things. One Thai model has posted a series of side-by-side pictures on Twitter of the realities behind the lies we see on social media. Vienna posts the pictures with witty captions, giving a glimpse into the fact that behind the poses, the filters, and the sucked in tummies are regular people, doing a job and making an income. Here is a selection of her creations.
