    Men Are Sharing Things Other Men Do That Piss Them Off, And I'm Glad They're Finally Calling Them Out

    "When a guy sends an unsolicited dick pic because a girl was being nice to him."

    Recently, Reddit user u/Pitiful_Airline1092 posed the question, "Men of Reddit, what pisses you off most about other men?" in r/AskReddit. Here's what they had to say.

    1. "Having to know EVERYTHING, or out-expert each other. When did it become 'unmanly' to say 'I don’t know'?"

    2. "How some men have no problem going after another man's girlfriend or spouse, but they absolutely lose it if someone goes after theirs."

    3. "How guys handle rejection. Lots of women are outright scared to directly turn down a man's advances because some will harass them or get violent. I think it's one of the big reasons ghosting has become such a common thing in dating."

    4. "When men say they are 'babysitting' their own children."

    5. "Older men hate taking instruction from young guys like myself in the trades. Instead of dropping their ego and feelings at the door, they come in with no experience and won't allow me to teach them."

    6. "Guys who behave desperately around women and won't stop hitting on them even if they clearly aren't interested."

    7. "Guys who become completely different when there aren't women around. A guy I work with is always nice to his female coworkers, but the second they're gone, they're a bunch of 'dumb bitches.'"

    "I've heard him tell women that his having three sisters gave him a great respect for them. He also told me (when the ladies weren't around) that having three sisters gave him insight into their weaknesses and allows him to easily take advantage of them."

    8. "When a guy sends an unsolicited dick pic because a girl was being nice to him."

    9. "Men who think it's 'unmanly' to drink delicious cocktails. Why is it suddenly 'unmanly' to have a sweet tooth when it comes to drinks? I mean, you don't go to someone's wedding and then say, 'Ha! Cake?! No way, I'm a real man.'"

    10. "Dudes who would rather put you down for not knowing every single detail about something rather than genuinely trying to help teach others and spread information."

    "And if they do manage to help, they — for whatever reason — have to have this demeaning, belittling tone."

    11. "I just hate some men who, when in a group, keep trying to establish dominance. They usually do that by being loud, interrupting people, or laughing at you instead of laughing with you."

    12. "If any dude unironically uses the term 'alpha' or 'beta' when talking about people, it's a red flag."

    13. "Turning insecurity into aggression and hatred for others."

    StonedHusk

    14. "Men who don't clean their own mess, do their laundry, cook their own food, or act like functional adults, basically."

    FingolfinX

    15. "Guys who peacock their extravagant purchases."

    16. "When they don’t know how to keep a toilet clean."

    ImBadAtUsernames72

    17. "When men refuse to call out their male friends for their shitty behavior. I know so many guys who keep one shitty dude in their friend group just because it’d be 'weird' to call them out on their misogynistic/racist/homophobic behavior."

    therxbandit

    18. "Men not supporting other men emotionally, even when it doesn't seem like they need it. Every man needs emotional support, especially from other men."

    19. And lastly: "WHEN MEN DON'T WASH THEIR HANDS AFTER USING THE RESTROOM, GODDAMMIT!!! LIKE, WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU!?!?"
