5. Fedoras: “Looks way too much like OKCupid to me.”


6. Deep V Necks: “There’s nothing sexy about your taco meat.”

9. White Male Rappers: “Check yourself, before you wreck yourself.”

11. Slut Shaming: “Dissing fly as fuck ladies is a huge turn off.”


12. Wallet Chains: “Those wallets with that extra accessory piece. It’s like, why is that there? To assert male dominance? To show that you shopped at Hot Topic circa 2005?”

  1. “Watermelon heart”

    In context, that sounds like a massive stereotype xD
    Try on that racio-misogyny, she who hates white male rappers hahaha

  2. these claims are totally misrepresented. Receding hairline seriously…you know whats a turn off, a woman who turns down a possibly good man just because genetically that individual is predisposed to receding hairlines. WTF? Guy wearing a logo on his shirt, seriously? We don’t complain when women carry an arsenal of handbags designed with bunch of animals and symbols. Women get tribal tattoos too and white rappers, well I’ll give you that, almost entirely. Eminem is an exception to that trend. The whole v-neck and axe thing I agree but most of them weren’t right. Glad to know women don’t run politics, its bad enough as it is.
