    Central Perk: the official coffee shop for meninists.

    1. Everyone knows that Ross is an asshole.

    2. He's a terrible father.

    Warner Bros Television

    He makes his parenting decisions based on his own selfish need for manly validation.

    3. He dumps his girlfriend because she's bald.

    4. And he dated his student, which is inappropriate and unprofessional.

    5. But all the guys are actually awful.

    Warner Bros Television

    They constantly tear each other down in an attempt to boost their own egos.

    6. They relentlessly mock Joey for owning a purse.

    7. And they think that the idea of a male nanny is somehow hilarious.

    8. Joey is kind of a misogynist.

    Warner Bros Television

    We only overlook it because it was the '90s and he's otherwise fun to laugh at.

    9. He's a creep who consistently sexualises his female friends.

    Warner Bros Television

    And remember the time he compared women to ice cream and told a mopey Ross to “grab a spoon".

    10. He doesn't value friendship at all.

    Warner Bros Television

    He literally saved his sandwich over his friend's life.

    11. And Ross and Joey admit that they wouldn't bother being nice to a woman unless they wanted sex.

    Warner Bros Television

    Because who values human decency just for the sake of it?

    12. They even left a baby on a bus in pursuit of women.

    13. Chandler is also a pathetic manbaby.

    Warner Bros Television

    He couldn't even propose to his girlfriend without making it a disaster.

    14. He was actually a dick to Monica when they were young.

    Warner Bros Television

    The basis of their marriage was him being an ass.

    15. And he continues to make fat jokes throughout their relationship.

    Warner Bros Television

    So much for character growth.

    16. Ross treats Rachel like property.

    Warner Bros Television

    She's not allowed to have male friends or be a successful career woman, because of his perceived ownership of his girlfriend. Not to mention, he stayed married to her against her will.

    17. He said the wrong name at the altar, which is actually really shitty.

    Warner Bros Television

    And then he had the audacity to play victim.

    18. He's just generally the absolute worst.

    19. Chandler strings Janice along even though he openly despises her.

    Warner Bros Television

    20. And he's perpetually concerned about being perceived as gay.

    Warner Bros Television

    21. All the men are insecure about their masculinity.

    Warner Bros Television

    22. Even Gunther feels like Rachel owes him something.

    Warner Bros Television

    Stay in your lane, Gunther.

    23. Which is probably why they feel the need to aggressively overcompensate.

    Warner Bros Television

    24. Basically the guys from Friends were the worst and the girls deserved so much better.

    Except for Mike, who is perfect!!
