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.

and women never mature. So says a study by someone else who knows nothing about the subject.

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.

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.


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.

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.
