Discuss this oxymoron in the comments below.
Wtf is this doing on the list? This is in no way an oxymoron.
While the word male can be used to refer to non-female children, it is equally (and more commonly) applied to adults.
I think the concept here is that “men” are perceived to act more immature than females by exasperated women who are in relationships with them. Ever heard the joke “What’s the difference between a stock bond and a man?” Bonds mature. The battle of the sexes is still alive.
I think rather than coming from a linguistic perspective, it is coming from the sexist view that males are never adult. You’re quite right, it is by no means an oxymoron.
I love sexism!! It's hilarious! Because men are shit.
Wtf? I don't get it… I'm a flower in the show. If you look it of course. Up yours. Wtf on the phone? Gamer lamer… Woah yeah hey hooo!
i love this cuz men are stupid iddiots that are ruining the world
It's all humans, not just men.
“Son, what do you want to be when you grow up?” “mommy, when I grow up, I want to be a man.” “Tut. Don't be silly son, you can't do both” xD love it.
another oxymoron “tolerant femenists”
women who rule have penises
a rational woman?
i agree with jyo on tolerant feminists being an oxymoron
If women were so much better then men then giving women voting rights should have made things better…hmmm
Isn't today's society great? If a man makes a funny sexist comment he's fired from his job and kicked in the crotch by the entire female staff, but when a woman makes a funny sexist comment she's being celebrated by the entire staff, gets a promotion and is published as the greatest creative mind in the history of time in all the major newspapers.Sure, sometimes light sexist jokes can be funny (if in the right crowd), but let's try to keep it on equal terms (now that's an oxymoron).
ahem. What about Female Logic?
JOKEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESLMFAOO MEN CAN SUCK IT
More like creampie girl! Wooooooo!!!!!
this is not an oxymoron moron, nicedykes u r not funny, just retarded, ur on oxymoronlist.com, u stupid retarded nerd, i hope u see this just to show how immature and how much u seem like a douchbag
Aha, I get it. And yes it an oxymoron. Because men don't always act like they're adult. thats why the most painful insult to a man is “grow up.” cuz sometimes men need 2 grow up sometimes.
I must have been napping….where oh where is this gent to be found??
if anything, women are more childish than men. unwillingness to accept they're wrong. complaining about every last detail. oh, and that whole “i'm pms-ing” excuse is getting old. just saying.
Women: Just have such low self-esteem that they hide the very own person that they are to absolutely everyone. hell they dont even know who they are themselves.Men: Just dont care…..it usually works out….no matter who we try to be
OXYMORON= Oxygen + Moron! :p
I think you just described my Step-Dad…
this is HILARIOUS.
This one is too funny.
actually oxy moron derives from greek roos: oxy= sharp moron= dull oxymorn=sharpdull
silly women dont need logic we have: INTUITION!
where da joke yo!!!!!!
Actually I think they were making fun of the fact that the oxymoron above was sexist towards men. Hence the reference to the Women's TV channel Oxygen,and moron
my english teacher is a feminist and all she talks about is how men do nothing but take advantage of women. im annoyed. that is being stereotypical. women do things that annoy us sometimes, too and not all men are immature and rude. not all women are nice and intelligent.
intuition without logic? ouch.
and not all men are morons. Just sayin'
good luck with your future husband no offence
Y do Drs smack babies on the bum when born…Cos the dicks fall off the DUMB ones. bwaaahahahahaha
No people like you are ruining the world with your misandry, if you hate men so much then maybe bugger off to a desert island with all the other bigot feminists start your own amazon cult and leave us nomal people alone.
Reply to the first half of your comment: I hate sexism, just because it’s aimed at men by women does not make it ok. I bet if you heard a man being sexist towards a woman you wouldn’t be laughing. Hypocrite.
Reply to the first comment: No Your shit. If you had any common sense You would realise that both Men and Women need to stop blaming each other for their problems and work together as one race. Or is that too much for your misandrist brain to handle?
On the second paragraph, I meant to put “Reply to the second half of your comment.” Oops.
I love this one, it’s the truest oxymoron ever made!!! <3
The whole “pms”ing thing is only getting old because it happens for two weeks every damn month! And you don’t need to diss that, because obviously YOU’VE never been there.
You think it’s all, “Oh, I’m bleeding, oh well, life can go on?” Nope. It’s more like:
“Ugh! I started again… I have to make sure I stay near a bathroom at all times, can’t go out if the cramps and headaches are bugging me…”
Then we get all pissed ‘cuz no MEN really care! You think everything is all fine and dandy…
P.M.S is Pre Menstrual Syndrome… it happens BEFORE, AFTER AND DURING a girl’s period.
Excuse me? Actually, women are more mature than men, don’t beleive me? Google it.
An intelligent and nice woman, who hates it when MEN diss her gender.
Obviously, someone is STERIOTYPING this… Men make sexist jokes ALLE the time at my work, and we women don’t care. But, as soon as WE crack a joke, we’re not allowed to do any big projects, and a few girls have gotten fired. For FAAAAAAAAR worse than what men have said…
A man not full of bullshit?
Now THAT’S an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one!
Or kind male, for that matter…
Ahem. What about quiet male?
Yup, now THAT’S an oxymoron.
Uhm, no. The ONLY men I’ve ever known who were NICE were either GAY or OLD.
If I knew what you had spelled, I would perhaps say something rude in return. So, I’m guessing you’re a man with no dick, then?
Sincerely, A smart female.
definately not an Oxymoron.
I’m with ya, sista!
you know, you really ARE a silly old bean… this woman can stick up for herself, assert herself, and all you maled can do is scream
“YO, SLAVE! WHERE THE HELL IS MY SANDWICH?”
s there a “love” button coming soon to replace the “like” button?
Ya know what why can’t we just get over this sexist crap and all be friends here? Honestly, whoever posted this junk is a sexist loser who thinks they’re all f***in’ that!!
WELL FUCK YOU TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, THATS GOING TOO F***IN FAR!!!
Really, so things would all be better if there was an Eve but no Adam, of if George Washington hadn’t saved our country from those redcoat SOBs, or if Jesus hadn’t died on the cross to save humanity?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I DIDN’T FUCKING THINK SO, SO FUCK OFF YOU SEXIST WHORE!!!!!!!
It’s one thing to make a sexist or racist JOKE (J-O-K-E), but when you actually go as far as to hurt somebody, then that’s crossing the line. Mind you there is a very THIN line between a joke and an insult, and this “oxymoron” has just walked over that line.
Hopefully, you aren’t actually a man yet, because if you are, then…
BLAST YOU, ENGLISH TEACHERS FOR THE LAST 30 OR SO YEARS! WHAT HAPPENED TO GRAMMAR STUDIES! HAVE YOU ANY IDEA HOW I FEEL EVERYDAY SEEING DUNCE ESSAY AFTER DUNCE ESSAY?!
May I refer to you a book titled Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus?
Ladies, it is true that on average, you mature first, but from years of observing adolescent dunces (with occasional decents or talents), I must note that the way the males act is below human. Is it any surprise that the perverse pregnancy rate is rising? It will take a human level of morality on the part of the male and a high sense of barriers for the females (although my wife would rephrase that so that the ladies look even better!).
And no, you do not want to see the wrath of Mrs. Èimhin, especially when you make even a small factual error in mathematics. She has been ranting about the incompetent unions beyond the aneurysm point and that is very close to reality. Of course, she does think I am immature when I rage over grammar. Ah well, the joys of projection combined with cognitive dissonance.
That just aint right!!! So what if women mature quicker than men. Men keep their youth longer. Hah! Hows that for slow maturation. And by the way women tend to contribute to men’s slow maturation by trying to mother men. I relish my youth and frankly so do most women. Am I immature? Of course! I won’t reach full maturity til I die. Then what good will that be? So til then I will have as much fun as I possibly can.
Just because girls have there periods every month doesn’t mean shit. Your not the only ones with something going on. Guys have stuff going on in there life too, sometimes that shit is worse than your fucking period. Your just a masochist bitch bent on being sexist to men. When do you ever see a guy complaining that he was dumped or some other shit. Thats because were not assholes that have to make excuses to act like a douche. Periods aren’t the end of the world. Go complain about something that matters like your parents got shot or your getting divorced. Also girls complain way to much about shit that doesn’t matter. I’m fucking tired of all you stereotypical Hippocrates. If men had periods you’d complain that it gets old too. so fuck off and stop being sexist. You say your a nice girl but you’re just like all the other sexist bitches out there. go join a feminist party and wonder off in the desert and die.
Amen brother. If women are more “mature” then men then how come they do the same things we do?
And let us not forget it was eve who tempted adam into biting the apple. So fuck you for our eternal damnation
Are you insulting Judeo-Christian beliefs? Don’t use that word especially after, “Amen!”
The only women who aren’t annoying are those in a coma and those that are dead. And the only men who are adults were either women first or had a brain transplant.
ok this just makes me laugh lol…you people are aguing on a freakin a website…about how women are better than men and men are better than women…there is no evidence…no matter how many tests scientists do…there is no evidence of either sex being better than the other…shit women are doing ‘men’ jobs and men are doing ‘women’ jobs…both sex’s are equivalent so get the fuck over it and live your lives…and keep your opinions to yourself when you know there are ppl out there that will argue with you…when you put your opinions out on the internet you know your just starting an arguement…
oh sod it. I came to this site to have a laugh not a debate.
Um .. so where’s the discussion about the oxymoron?
From the way some of you people are acting no wonder people go gay or lesbian
what in the world who really cares some men are immature and so are some women it just depands on who you hang out with and what way you look at it
do you realized that you just said that men arent wise or can make good decisions what about albert einstein he created the energy the stars make or thomas edison he created the light AND the telephone you cant just say were immature plus space immature and it spells I’M MATURE. then im 12 and i take this in mean way
SO!? Woman take advantige of all this equality bullshit. Im all for it but when a girl gets out of trouble just because shes a girl, and then says all guys are immature. they can take advantage of us too! And there you said another stereotype that eludes the equality. Fuck you
Go join a feminist group. i admit men, yes are immature, but seriously? i should put one up here “Non-complaining women” And no, you arent nice.
Definitly a oxymoron, Also you need to learn how to spell, you dumb blond!
i bet you suck a mean dick
“Google it”? Yeah, because Google is ALWAYS right – and everything else on the internet is always right too *sarcasm*. Are you really one of those fools that believes everything they read on the internet?
Women are not more mature than men. The way you wrote your comment only proves my point. You’re acting like a child – and it’s over something really stupid.
He wasn’t trying to “diss” your gender. All he said was that not all men are immature and not all women are nice and intelligent. How is that offensive?
Logic, Reason, & Common Sense
Have fun trying to get married.
Ruining the world? There weren’t too many things wrong with it till people like you were created.
No, he makes a valid point. If you go on believing that EVERY man is an idiot, then how can you have a successful, trusting relationship with one? Explain that to me please.
How exactly are we “ruining the world”?
Wow really? A vast majority of the comments here were written by woman and hate on men for being immature. Yet you yourself are acting like you’re little boy who just discovered the CAPS Lock button on his mom’s computer keyboard.
YOU are the oxymoron – and also a hypocrite.
So true. The woman here are not using logic. If they were then “Adult Male” would not have been listed as an oxymoron.
So you hang around at retirement centers and gay bars?
Then you have not “known” (met) many men.
Woah… good point. *high five*
You’re such a hypocrite. Judging by the other comments you’ve posted here, spelling is definitely NOT your strong point. Go retake elementary school English classes and then come back and post a comment.
I’m a woman, and I thought your was totally hilarious. You made my day! LMAO. Kisses
I meant to say your comment was hilarious.
The phrase “adult male” is summed up in one 3-letter word: ”man.” And this perspective as men being the “kids” of adults is reversing the idea of females being the “fairer sex.” I don’t know though. They both have mature qualities of their own.
Girls Are NOT always more mature. There are lots of Immature guys but there are ALSO lots of immature girls!
Not all guys treat their wives like that. Most guys treat them greater than themselves.
a nice girl, okay, but not a very intelligent one, obviously!
a nice girl, okay, perhaps, but not a very intelligent one, obviously….
you are SO right. i apologize on behalf of all teachers, not to mention women…men are fine…no more or less immature than many women.
Seriously, what in the world is wrong with you? You can’t even use correct grammar, yet you talk about how “intelligent” and “mature” you are. I’m only a 13 year old boy, yet am far more nature than most college “women”. How do you explain that except that not all women are nice and intelligent and not all men are rude and ignorant? The theory that all men are “pigs” and are as “dumb as a sac of rocks” is completely stereotypical and, frankly, is quite offensive and false. Some of the most intelligent human beings were men. Not to take any kind of credit away from women, of course. The world would be nothing without women, but, let’s not forget, the world would also be nothing without men.
You are extremely annoying and sexist. No one here appreciates your comments, so you might as well keep them to yourself.
Sorry for any mispellings. My phone has autocorrect and I didn’t catch any errors when I submitted my comment
Not an oxymoron
obviously submitted by a macho female
An adult male is not an oxymoron
don’t think so.
i don’t believe you’re right, i don’t think a certain gender is more mature than the other. i think it varies for individuals.
Yeah, the internet isn’t always right:
“You can’t believe everything you read on the internet” ~Abe Lincoln
He never said that women cannot be nice and immature, just that there are some women who are not perfect. He also never said that women are less mature than men. My opinion is that desirable and undesirable traits are spread fairly evenly among all people, regardless of gender. Personality should be judged independently of appearance and physical attributes.
I’m a little tired of it being acceptable to deride men. As a woman, I can’t be silent while other women publicly disrespect men. I have a son, a father, a brother-in-law and a boyfriend. I love and admire these men and won’t allow other women to lump all men into one category. If men said the same things about women, there’d be a massacre. We can’t have it both ways. It’s time for us to grow up or “fair women” will become an oxymoron.
Who ever made this list isn’t objective.
I like how Eve came from Adam’s rib…
Nobody likes being offended.
You’re dissing men.
Honey, you’re making it too easy for people to label you as a hypocrite. Try seeing this from another angle, as in the “men’s side” if you will. You’re not the victim here; Men can get offended, too. Also, there’s a difference between argument and discussion. Intelligent people DISCUSS things in a more formal manner. You should maybe think about backing up your argument before posting. Now, just because we usually mature sooner than men doesn’t necessarily mean we’re any more mature than them, and frankly, your comments certainly don’t bring justice to anyone.
Our sense of right and wrong varies…Men tend to be more rational while women usually like to follow their moral judgement…or something like that. So in a way, you’re both right and wrong.
But I completely agree with you about the PMS thing, It doesn’t give us an excuse to act…well, bitchy.
I really wish I could prove you wrong about the society part, but unfortunately, you’re right. If it’s any consolation, I wouldn’t kick you in the crotch.
Without men you would have been still sitting in cave poking stick at your p**sy.
okay…just wanted to say…men basically ruled the entire world until like the 1940s and 50s, even though women had been trying for equal treatment since the late 1800s. so it’s kinda fair that it’s accepted more when women make sexist jokes. just sayin.
and adding this…it’s not our fault we have periods…men should have to put up with us for that time of the month. plus we’re the ones who have to get pregnant.
Again, we seem to have gone off track. This “discussion” is supposed to to be about the alleged oxymoron, “Adult Male.” Very few, if any, posts in this discussion up ’til now has even remotely mentioned sexually-based preferences. It also seems to me that, again, many of the so-called “people” who post here type before they speak. Sometimes, I wonder what the world would be like without “people” like you.
Dunno about work places, but at school, any and all sexist jokes are about women. Of course, the jokes are meant to be taken seriously, but not many people mind it too much (assuming it’s only once in a while).
bs. not all women sit by the bathroom and cry about it all day. matter of fact, i can’t even tell the diff when i have it and when i dont. and 2 weeks each month? are u crazy? average is 5 days (give or take), so calm da f*ck down with ur fake bs.
