I don't think my DH got any flack for being a SAHD. He got a lot of envy, though. I think it was the idea of him all alone with all the women at the school gate. Poor misguided blokes. smile

They judge women though. The way Schofield interviewed the women who were abused by Savile springs to mind.

My dh is very non judgemental. All his mates seem the same. If one gave up work to be a sahd, they wouldn't be jealous, bitter and critical. They would be envious but not in a nasty way.
I think men are very different to women.
I think men are MUCH better than women at this.

Men don't judge other men?

Are they taking the piss????

hahahahahahahahahahhahaa<falls over>

In my experience, women as a group definitely seem more judgemental.

Or perhaps men and women are equally judgemental, but men don't vocalise it for whatever reason (fear of being labelled a 'gossip' - i.e. a womanly trait, social stigma against revealing feelings/thoughts, etc).

MN don't judge each other!

People judge each other. Far too often, generally.

Philip Schofield, for example, is a twat

< prepares for another Jeremy Vine phone-in >

Men and boys judge each other all the time.

I mean seriously? People think this doesn't happen? Football anyone? Music? Hairstyles? Trousers? Jobs? Pool skills? Computer skills? Games skills? Cars? Bicycles? Skateboards? Knowledge about whatever the group is interested in???? Just everything????

I mean come on males don't judge each other? <falls off chair again>

I don't think women as a group are more judgemental. We're socially conditioned to perceive women as more judgemental; doesn't mean it is at all true.

Men gossip, 'bitch' and judge....but those are terms applied to women's conversations. With men they will tell you they are 'just mucking around' or having a laugh/joke with each other.

Men definitely judge each other...subject matter might be different but they still form opinions about other men that they see as different from themselves or their circle of friends...can't understand why this fallacy about men not judging each other still exists hmm

The use of the word 'gay' as a term of abuse is most often used by men/boys against other men/boys if they are judged to not be macho enough/have the right clothes/act the right wat etc. It is very prevalent.

Why are people so invested in inventing/exaggerating differences between the sexes? Just decide on a position and fabricate anecdotes evidence to fit. What a narrow minded way to live. Must bring them comfort or summat confused

Judginess stems from our need to bond socially. Great social pressure is brought to bear to make people in groups conform and non-conformists as viewed with great suspicion (they might be the next murder or thief). This is true of male groups just as it is of female groups. If you don't believe this then it's because men are judging each other on different criteria or expressing their judginess differently. I don't know why the myth perpetuates that women are more judgy.

Men are definitely as judgmental as women. However, women on the whole are more likely to be judged.

CognitiveOverload Tue 16-Apr-13 21:22:50

From my experience women place more value on their judgements than men do. Perhaps it is the way we have evolved.

samandi Mon 22-Apr-13 12:43:48

It's nonsense. Of course men judge other men, just as they also judge women.

Meglet Mon 22-Apr-13 12:47:28

I've known plenty of men bitch about each other. It's human nature, not just women.

PacificDogwood Mon 22-Apr-13 12:51:00

ALL of life and its social interactions between men can be explained as a pissing context IMO.
Ever listened to 'jokey', 'matey' banter?? Passive-agressiveness at its best.

And yy that women get judged more, by men and women.

dopeysheep Mon 22-Apr-13 12:51:22

I think men compete. Judging by results, rather than opinion.

It is still judgement though. Everyone does it it's how we arrive at a common morality.

YoniMatopoeia Mon 22-Apr-13 12:52:18

I am pretty sure that some men judge each other ... They seem to judge quite harshly for not being man enough, for being under the thumb, for being too much like the 'other' that is female...
