·7 min read

If you're a woman, you've definitely thought about how men seem to have a special kind of confidence that empowers them to say whatever they want — no matter how unasked for, offensive, or embarrassing.

So u/ceo_of_dumbassery decided to ask women, "What's the most embarrassing thing a man has said to you?" And, wow, there was no shortage of responses, so here are just some of the top ones:

1."My manager looked at me and said, with all of my male coworkers in the room, 'I hope I can try you out in bed. You must be a freak.'"

"I reported him and he was terminated." —u/toootired2care

2."'Damn girl, are you as young as you look? 'Cause I've got a white van just around the corner.'"

3."I brought a guy out with my friends once, and we were talking about nicknames that family and friends have given us. He goes, 'My friends call me silverback gorilla because they recognize my alpha vibe.'"

Fremantle North America / 19 Entertainment / Via giphy.com

"Obviously a damn lie." —u/CHILLIMEDITING

4."My brother and I were in a car accident. It was the other driver's fault. It's kind of easy to see that my brother and I are siblings. We keep out of each other's space — like, we sit on opposite sides of a row of seats. The driver sued the insurance company, and we had to go testify in court. The guy said loudly, in front of the judge and lawyers, that, of course, I'd lie for my boyfriend because I fuck him. The guy's lawyer told him in a not-so-quiet voice that we're siblings. He turned beet red and lost the case since the evidence clearly showed he was at fault."

"I had to wait until we left the court to laugh my ass off." —u/Lunaphoenix23

5."This dude I was talking to asked if I was looking to have kids. I was 20 and said, 'Not anytime soon.' He proceeded to tell me that my breasts would look great swollen with milk."

9."'God, I hate being around all these betas.' We were at the gym."

"I don't do drugs anymore, this was just from a little phase from high school." —u/ceo_of_dumbassery
