Yes, I would agree that most of those things would turn me off if a guy did them. I don`t mind if a guy plays games as long as he`s not obsessed with them. I play XBox games occasionally myself but I do a lot of other things as well.

Odd list- that is just stuff really- not attitudes. Women do not `switch on` until about 40, I remember being told this when younger and thinking it was rubbish, but at about 39 I suddenly grew up, started being an assertive person and really using my experience. perhaps it is the same for all people...

Oh wait, I can count 8 of these now that I`m weight training.

Although a grandmother I work with has also started weight training and talks about her training and how it`s changing her physique. Does that mean she`s a man? Wow! I never knew! You would have thought that doctors would have noticed...and then there`s the whole being pregnant and giving birth thing.

Or maybe this sort of thing is just stereotyping babble.

I`ve had gaming tips from a coworker`s grandma (she was right, by the way), so you`re on good ground there. You`ll very likely have to be more careful about what you eat at 80, though.

Come to think of it, the last "slightly rude word" joke I heard was told to me by a woman in her 90s. Quite a few of the more vigorous elderly people I know would be "immature" by these standards - keeping some fun in your life is generally a good thing for a better quality of life in old age.

I`m secure enough in my maturity to not have to be constantly trying to prove that I`m mature. I`ll dance stupidly when I feel like it until I`m too frail to dance at all and I`ll play more videogames when I`m retired than I do now, because I`ll have more time to do things that entertain me.

I`m quite disappointed that I can only match 7 of the items on that list, because I have no intention of ever being "mature" by those standards.

It`s an interesting reflection of the overall changes in sexism over the last century. The process is simple:

Premise: One sex is superior to the other.
Premise: Some things are more commonly done by people of one sex than the other.

Conclusion: Those things are superior.

Same sexism, different sexes. That`s all.

Why, for example, is playing videogames less mature than watching soap operas? It isn`t. It`s just that antimale sexism is more powerful and pervasive than antifemale sexism.

They have an odd list of what classes as immature....it sounds more like `this is what men do that the women who we asked didn`t like them doing`.

Nickel hit the nail on the head... 43 is just the average age we get to before we settle for saying `yes dear` rather than face another 4 day row about something that we just can`t win. The best we can hold out for is a draw and mostly it`s not worth trying for one.

hahaha, so women decide what is maturity now do they? or who does? i think it`s quite mature to realise your body produces gas and that it stinks and there iant not much you can do about, so F*k it, have some fun with it?

no seriously, who decides what`s "mature"?
if men keep showing that behaviour well into their 40`s then it must be a natural development, which doesn`t bow down to society imposed rules of conduct. now pull my finger!

"Men do not mature at 43, they give up having a fun-filled celebration of life and start saying `yes dear`, `no dear` and `anything you say dear`."

This, that and that again.

#14,15,16,17 are out due to age (57). As far as the rest are concerned, carry on `til death. Men do not mature at 43, they give up having a fun-filled celebration of life and start saying `yes dear`, `no dear` and `anything you say dear`.

I think they mean that most sorry-assed, boring, stick-up-their-butt, party-pooper men mature at 43. I`m still holding out.

If playing video games at 2 a.m. and eating junk is immature, then I don`t want my man to be mature. EVER. I want to be 80 and eating pizza rolls and playing Mario Kart with him. FTP

Study commissioned by Nickelodeon. Clearly a publicity gag.

I bet a massive kunt wrote this. It sounds like women want men to adjust their attention elsewhere... hmm... I wonder where.
