Or rather, why are girls actually messier than guys. Hear me out now, people, it’s like this: when we were young lads growing up in a younger America, we all knew one thing was true about girls: they were cleaner. They had cleaner clothes (not as much mud and bubblegum or oatmeal on their gear) and they had cleaner rooms. Boys, on the other hand, had very messy rooms, with clothes everywhere, baseball cards thrown askew and G.I. Joes with missing weapons or even heads. Plus the occasional stray Fruit Roll-Up wrapper or a piece of Bazooka Joe that someone forgot to chew. Boys were messier.
We’ve been discussing this lately, here in our new Offices. We’ve been discussing the fact that no matter who you ask this question to —
The Question: When is the last time you knew a girl (or woman) who had a really, you know like really clean room?
— that the answer is always, always:
“Woah, like not in a really, like really long time.”
I mean what’s going on here, people? Is it a recent, historic thing? That otherwise sensible women suddenly became messier and normally careless dudes somehow became neat-freaks? Yes we could go into the often-unfortunate actual “facts” of history, y’know, the whole women with their so-called “natural homemaking” skills blah blah BUT WE WON’T, BECAUSE THE DAILY MILTIONIAN ISN’T INTO THAT KIND OF STUFF. No, we just want to know why your female friends (and you, our female readers) have such messy rooms, and why boys are all of a sudden much neater and tidier.
Keep all Post-Feminist/Marxist/Theorist/Misogynist/Whateverist rah-rah boo-hiss rhetoric out of this discussion. This is supposed to be Fun.
