Shut yo mouth

“A foolish man tells a woman to stop talking, but a wise man tells her that her mouth is extremely beautiful when her lips are closed”

This was the Facebook status of one of my ‘friends’, who was yes, a guy.  Perhaps it was a joke, but my response to jokes like this are “Ha ha”…(sarcastically) and the “are you being serious?” stare, that classifies one as not a very nice female. 

Any woman who didn’t feel insulted even by the so called ‘wise man’s way of telling her to shut up needs to reevaluate how she accepts what I’m presuming was meant to be a compliment (more of an insult in the guise of a compliment than anything else)

And any guy who thinks this way shouldn’t be spewing his opinions anyways because they clearly aren’t worth listening to. 

Being a woman should have nothing to do with whether or not it’s ok to speak.  Yes, sometimes I wish people didn’t speak, but those are the people who are ignorant, arrogant, unintelligent, bigots, etc. That however, is not limited to gender.
