Gender Bias & Random Items


I received this email from a friend and thought it was hilarious (and mostly true)!!    There was no author or “owner” listed, but if it’s your material and you see it here–I give you props!! Email me.

P/S:  NO, I don’t park well.

Male or Female? You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female.  Here are some examples:

FREEZER BAGS:
They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

 

 

PHOTOCOPIERS:
These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong Buttons.

 

 

 

 

TIRES:
Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated

 

 

HOT AIR BALLOONS:
Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.

 

SPONGES:
These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.

WEB PAGES:
Female, because they’re constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS:
Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people.

EGG TIMERS:

Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.

HAMMERS:
Male, because in the last 5000 years, they’ve hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.


THE REMOTE CONTROL:
Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he’d be lost without it, and while he doesn’t always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying.

New Law:
With the high rate of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Minneapolis City Council has established a ‘Women Only’ parking lot at the Mall of America. Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for patrons.

Below is the first picture available of this world-first women-only parking lot in  Minnesota  .

For those of you stuck at home sick, or snowed in–Might as well LAUGH!!

    Unfortunately, the picture of the woman-only parking lot didn’t appear when I read your post. I assume there is something VERY male about the picture: say the people in it?
    Great material! None of it, unfortunately, is mine. Oh well, now let me see, lap top computers are . . . facebook is . . .
