Anyone else notice TiMs love talking about how much they cry?

Women are mortified by crying in public. That's why there's a cliche about women crying in the bathroom at work.

My skin is crawling with discomfort at the mere mental image of a grown man "screaming and crying like a little girl" on the ground because he fell off a bike.

It's the moaning for me 🤢

These morons truly think women are overemotional, vulnerable, pornified beings. "Touch grass" might be getting thrown around a lot lately....but they should try it. Stop jacking it to anime and go outside and speak to real people and see how much they don't know what real life is like. Probably would be a huge culture shock.

I fell off my bike last week.

I said “Fuck”

Also “ouch”

Last time I fell off a bike I said both those things and then did a Basil Fawlty and stood kicking the thing. In the street.

Saw a little girl fall of her bike yesterday. Like little kids are, she looked around for sympathetic adults, didn't see any, cussed like a little sailor and picked up her bike.

(disclaimer : it was clear that the fall hadn't been bad, otherwise I of course would have actively made sure, she was okay)

Haha I love that little pause and look small kids do while they work out if it’s worth crying. My Nigel’s favorite game is shouting “Penalty!” when he sees it though that doesn’t often help the situation.

I know! I like exclaiming :"Look at you! You are like an acrobat!". Usually makes kids proud and deters crying.

They need to change the TWAW mantra - women are adults but these people don’t want to be women, they seem to want to be little girls..?

But now I think about it, when I was a little girl I fell off my bike all the time - as did all my little girl friends. Can’t remember a single one of us screaming and crying about it.

TIMs just have no idea what women and girls are actually like. Actual little girls would eat these dudes alive.

I seriously injured myself early this month. Screamed at the initial shock, then quietly sobbed until I gathered the strength to get up and move. Had to go about my day while barely being able to walk because I have responsibilities. Women don't act like children when we are injured or at any other point in our daily lives. #itsafetish

Lol... no adult woman cries when she falls off her bike. Saw a woman come off a motorbike the other day and she just got up and brushed it off. Women are so much better at dealing with pain than men.

I took a bike crash at about 35mph. I got road rash down my chest, due to wearing a tank top.

I sat there, stunned for a minute, sat up and started cursing and hissing. I had to limp home the last quarter of a mile, pushing my bike. I had to call off work for a few days until the bruises stopped hurting so bad.

I cried a little bit, but it was quiet and angry and mostly when I was cleaning road grit out of my chest.

(I’d been going down a really steep hill at top speed on a hybrid mountain bike. I tried to brake in the rain, water got between my brakes and the tires. I found a rut on the road by trying to swerve out and away from the street corner I knew I was coming up on. I hit the curb at 35mph, down from the 40 I’d been going.)

I had a co-worker back before the pandemic who biked to work. She had a fall that ended up with road rash up and down one of her legs. I don't know how she reacted in the moment. But when she got to work, the first thing she said to me was "it's pretty gross, wanna see?".

Yeah, us girls are such delicate little flowers. snort

That’s what my last fall from a bike was like! Skinned my shin (I was in shorts), hobbled into a tram depot for some first aid (dude was most helpful, if worried the iodine would sting - it didn’t) and had to walk my bike home. This after kicking it around and swearing at it a la Basil Fawlty.

Gotta say, if the bruising on my thighs hadn’t already been hurting in the minutes after the crash, I might’ve punted my helmet into the underbrush.

Oh, absolutely. Dainty and delicate and breakable, of course, one second from weeping prettily at the drop of a hat.
