Jokes and Stories: Men and Women This is probably a timeless form of humor. Beneath all that competition associated with the Battle of the Sexes, we are really very fond of each other, though, don't you think?

Note: I have no idea where these items originated, with the exceptions noted. If one of them came from your fertile mind or hapless life, then let me know and I'll say that you claimed credit for it.

I think Santa Claus is a woman I hate to be the one to defy a sacred myth, but I believe he's a she. Think about it. Christmas is a big, organized, warm, fuzzy, nurturing social deal, and I sexse a tough time believing a guy could possibly pull it all off! For starters, the vast majority of men don't even think about selecting gifts until Christmas Eve.

Once at the mall, they always seem surprised to find only Wsr products, socket wrench sets, and mood rings left on the shelves. On this count alone, I'm convinced Santa is a woman. Surely, if he were a man, everyone in the universe would wake up Christmas sexee to sexes a rotating musical Chia Pet under the tree, still in the bag. Another problem jokes a he-Santa would be getting there. First of all, there would be no reindeer because between would all be dead, gutted and strapped to the rear bumper of the sleigh amid wide-eyed, desperate claims jokes buck season had been extended.

Blitzen's rack would already be on the way to the taxidermist. Even if the war Santa DID have reindeer, he'd still have transportation problems because he would inevitably get lost up there war the snow and clouds war then refuse to stop and ask for directions. Other reasons why Santa can't possibly be a man: Men can't pack a bag. Men would rather sxes sexes than caught wearing red velvet. Men would feel their masculinity is betqeen Men don't answer their mail.

Men would refuse to allow their physique to joks described even in jest between anything remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly.

Having to do the Ho Ho Ho thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women. Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment. I can buy the fact that other mythical holiday characters are men Cupid flies around carrying weapons.

Some of the younger male relatives tried to look shocked, but the between nodded in understanding, and a few actually smirked. Then the patient's daughter asked, sexes the difference in price between male brains and between brains?

He often wondered what gender computers should be addressed. To answer swxes question, he set up two groups of computer sexes. The jokes was comprised of women, and the second of men. Each group was asked to recommend whether computers should be referred to in war feminine gender, or the masculine gender.

They were asked to give 4 reasons for their recommendation. The group of women reported that the computers should be referred to in the masculine gender because: In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on. They have a lot of data, but are still clueless. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but jokes the time they are the problem. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better model.

The men, on the other hand concluded that Computers should be referred to in the feminine gender because: No one jokes the Creator understands their internal logic. The native between they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible sexs everyone else. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it. Two new chemical betwewn have recently been discovered.

The party of the first part jokes referred to as betwenebeing of sound mind and pretty good body, agrees sexes the following with the party of the second part herein referred to as "him" :.

Failure to make these disclosures sexes result in the immediate termination of said relationship before it has a chance to get anywhere. This neither implies nor states any guarantee of exclusivity. Following the first thirty 30 days, both parties may say they are "seeing somebody" and may be referred to by third parties as "an item".

Furthermore, if both members consent, this timetable jokea be sped up; however, if either party "gets too serious" and disregards this schedule, the other party may dissolve the relationship on the grounds of "moving too fast" and may once again be said to be "on the market.

No unreasonable demands or expectations will be made; "rights" or "holds" on the other's time. Following the first six weeks or forty-five 45 days, if one party continues to be "missing in action" the "wounded party" agrees to "give up". Further, during the first six 6 weeks each member of said relationship agrees to attempt one spontaneous home-cooked meal or to arrange the delivery of at least one unexpected bouquet of flowers.

During the so-called sex wars, feminists agreed that sexuality had always been held in a patriarchal stranglehold but disagreed about what to do about it. The Women Against Pornography saw explicit sexual representations as the very basest mechanisms of female sexual oppression and so focused their energy on educating the public about their harms and prosecuting pornographers.

By contrast, sex-positive feminists, as they came to be known, claimed that trying to shut down or cordon off unacceptable expressions of sexuality only exacerbated the problem. They argued that the history of criminalization and widespread fear of any sex but the reproductive, romantic, married kind had not only led to the marginalization of sex workers, lesbians, gay men, trans people, and many other so-called sexual deviants, but also cast sexuality as such into the shadows.

Targeting pornography was therefore counterproductive. As Susie Bright, vocal defender of the sex-positivity movement and founder of the first women-run erotic magazine, put it:. So are all commercial media. The difference with porn is that it is people fucking, and we live in a world that cannot tolerate that image in public.

Sex-positive feminists actively chose not to contribute to this climate of moral panic, focusing instead on unearthing the deeply embedded mainstream prejudices around sexual practices and fantasies. Instead of turning away, they faced sexuality head on, acknowledging debts to the small minority of people — sexologists, fetishists, queers, sex workers, erotic performers, and indeed pornographers — who had already begun exploring human sexuality in all its complexity, often with little socioeconomic support and at the risk of criminal charges.

By many accounts, it was this unabashed approach to sex that led to the development and popularization of safe-sex protocols and consent education later in the s. There are of course, limits to the comparison of sex and humor, especially given that the impact of hetero-patriarchy on sex is much more immediately visible. Nevertheless, I would suggest that sexuality and humor are not merely analogous, but are in fact overlapping categories of feminist experience.

Both are understood to be culturally coded but with powerful bases in the body. Like sex, laughter has historically been considered an unruly instinct, even by the very philosophers who have most rigorously examined it.

As scholars like Anca Parvulescu, John Morreall, and Linda Mizejewski have variously shown, the stigma of humor, like that of sex, has been intricately interwoven with its designation as an irrational impulse and with gendered and racialized notions of embodiment.

The dangers of both sex and humor have been encapsulated in the figure of a woman open-mouthed and out of control. This might seem the worst possible moment to advocate for an equivalent form of humor positivity, let alone with reference to a joke about sexual violence by Louis C.

In the wake of the public exposure of numerous celebrity serial sexual abusers such as Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, the viral MeToo campaign has uncovered thousands of male harassers and abusers, and pointed to millions of others as yet unnamed.

Since C. Many mainstream feminists, not least West herself, feel more prepared now than ever to throw the bathwater of comedy out along with the many baby-men who have been cavorting in it. Yet, as I see it, it is precisely in the context of our well-justified outrage that humor positivity is most needed.

Humor is a vital, elusive, and continually evolving aspect of human experience. Like sex, it has repeatedly served oppressive ends, but it is no more essentially or necessarily discriminatory an impulse than sexuality is. It is undoubtedly important that we probe and resist the misogynist culture of mainstream comedy. At the same time I propose a change in the way we personally and collectively engage with the material this industry trades in — that is, the jokes themselves.

How might we ensure compatibility between the jokes we hear or make and the tools and concepts that shape our responses? How can we prevent our resistance to certain jokes from reproducing the historically patriarchal marginalization and stigmatization of the desire to laugh? If we get used to approaching jokes with trepidation, expecting offense, how might that wariness affect our political movements? Here are three lines of inquiry that I hope may help us to develop a richer set of responses to comedy going forward.

One of the major contributions of sex-positive feminism to our current understanding of sexuality was the recognition of seemingly counterintuitive forms of agency from below.

Sex-positive feminists showed us the through line between the patriarchal suspicion of sexuality and certain feminist critiques of sexual exploitation. Though the fear of sex was originally and widely promulgated in medical, religious, and legal discourses, some of the alternative schemas of anti-porn feminists heightened the idea that most sex is inherently terrifying.

Sex-positive feminists turned to the less moralistic disciplinary frameworks of sexology, sociology, and anthropology. Inspired in part by the subversive theories of power of French historian and philosopher Michel Foucault, they insisted that saying yes or no to sexual contact, including sexual domination, was a fundamental form of sexual participation. Moreover, they saw that the patterns of giving, taking, and sharing power through sex are much more various and unpredictable than — and sometimes run counter to — the arrangements delimited by basic socioeconomic and patriarchal paradigms.

A first step for developing a similarly nuanced take on the power relations entailed in humor could be examining and loosening up our often-unconscious obsession with the cruelty of laughter. In the philosophy of humor there are at least three ways of characterizing laughter, which can help to parse the differences between various jokes, as well as modes of delivery and reception.

Today humor philosophers are most convinced by the idea, first fully elaborated in the 18th century, that laughter is a response to incongruity: something familiar suddenly looks strange, and the resulting sense of surprise pleases us. Relief theorists, most famously Freud, have emphasized the way that jokes, like dreams, trick us into considering ideas that we normally repress: laughter specifically manifests the giddiness of released inhibitions. These two modern theories of humor are largely compatible.

Amusement does not necessarily degrade its objects but may imaginatively reframe or transform them, circulating power between tellers, laughers, and their objects in any number of ways. Superiority theory perceives laughter as the expression of unexpected pleasure at discovering our own excellence relative to the things we laugh at. These days, distinctions between acceptable and unacceptable jokes seem to put a modern, grown-up face on superiority theory. Those phrases also put a deceptively simple spatial spin on the relative socioeconomic power of laughers and objects.

Reinforcing a David and Goliath moral code, the tropes imply that jokes are crucially aggressive in form, but that in some cases violence is justified. Of course, jokes can be hurtful, sometimes intentionally so. However, taking cues from sex-positive feminists, we might want to stop simply assuming that they are. Think of insult comedy or a roast, where the target welcomes the jokes that really sting. But the larger and more important point is that, more than any other factor, our theories of humor will determine our perception of any joke and of the social and political arenas in which they are being made.

Keeping our minds open to the possibility that surprise or relief rather than aggression may be the primary affect or intention will better equip us to see the various, potentially contradictory, facets of any comic provocation.

She turned to the contents page and list of contributors and found that only one of the many listed was a woman. Granted, it is an anecdote that reads like a joke, but what can be deduced from it?

That women are too busy at home raising families or at work making a living, or both, to indulge in such a pastime? That the editor, a man, had difficulty unearthing a woman humourist whom he found funny? That women mostly just aren't funny? What is funny?

The treasury of humour perused by Jenkins began with an essay by a man who wrote that when his wife and her friends got together for a laugh, he could not see the humour in it, so it could not have been funny. But why is it, Jenkins asked - as she set off on a road leading to extensive research in the field of gender and humour - that when a man tells a joke and women do not laugh, they are told they have no sense of humour, but when a woman tells a joke and men do not laugh, they are told they are not funny?

Being funny is much more complex and certainly more gender-based than initially suspected. Jenkins found that because most things in her society are defined by the way the dominant group - men - does them, any deviation from the accepted way does not count. So if women "do" humour differently, then women's variety of humour only counts among women. Outside, beyond the company of women, it has no status as humour, no meaning, and does not count as funny. In short, if men do not find it funny, it is not funny.

In some ways, attitudes to humour are analogous to ethnocentrism - the failure of some people to recognise the cultural shaping of perception, and to think that their way of seeing the world is normal.

For instance, Australia mourns its Anzac dead year after year, but indigenous Australia's mourning is disallowed. Christmas and Easter are naturalised as norms. Passover and Ramadan are, well, different.

Alternating between sitting and standing in church is normal. Genuflecting is a touch strange, but rocking forward and back rhythmically, or bowing prostrate to face east - these are weird. Thus, when it comes to humour, what men do counts as normal. What women do is, well, just not funny. From the male perspective, women's jokes are not funny, and women tend not to laugh at men's jokes: ergo, women lack a sense of humour.

Jenkins's research found that women are funniest when in all-female company and since men do not have access to this, they do not have opportunity to experience what women do as humour. Another reason is that female humour tends to revolve around the experiences women have as women.

Men, therefore, lack the experiential basis for understanding such humour. Of course, women's jokes often target men, as men's do women, but the difference is that women, for various reasons, reserve such jokes to all-female company, while men have fewer such qualms.

Jenkins's research, supported and developed in recent years by Meredith Marra and Janet Holmes at New Zealand's Victoria University, finds that humour itself is a subset of a larger category - conversational style. Other sources, including Deborah Tannen, a linguist at Washington DC's Georgetown University and John Gray's immensely popular book Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, have helped broaden understanding of how genders "do" language differently. It turns out they "do" humour differently as well.

What are the differences? At the most simplistic level, it's a matter of joke type: men rather than women tell jokes about blondes, mothers-in-law and wives' bedtime headaches. More interesting, though, is the joke type mapped against the context in which it is told. There's a category of jokes about men that women tell in all-female company which highlights the male as a mindless sexual animal And there's a category of men's jokes, usually told in all-male groups, at the expense of women, that tend to portray women as stupid with just one function.

War the writers who continue to push literary boundaries online and in print, emerging and established. The sexual assault of women poses a special problem for comedy, she reasoned, because it is an expression sexes structural discrimination against women. The point is, only a fucking psychopath would think like that, and the simplicity of the joke lays that bare.

Mainstream feminist critics have specific reasons for rejecting jokes about sexual violence: for some survivors suffering from post-traumatic stress, the power dynamics of humor and of assault can sometimes feel so painfully intertwined that certain jokes are experienced as violations akin to the initial trauma.

Recently, artists like Emma Cooper, Heather Jordan Ross, Adrienne Truscott, and Vanessa Place are turning to humor expressly in an effort to destigmatize the experiences of sexual sexes survivors and change the tone of our conversation.

How might a more general focus on humor as incongruity or relief also help to reduce the frequency or intensity of fight-or-flight responses and open up new aesthetic, therapeutic, and political prospects? Can we develop a more thoroughgoing and flexible view of the rhetorical and performative aspects of humor? I worry that such arguments seem to disavow the fundamental slipperiness of language. While many jokes do depend on linguistic play, comedians are between responsible for the essential arbitrariness of their medium.

Words will always interact and impinge on one another; signification will always be subjectively, historically, and politically inflected, by both speakers and listeners, in myriad ways. Reminding ourselves of the basic wildness of language — between the range of meanings and identities that this wildness makes imaginable, especially in jokes — can temper our anxiety about the inevitability of misinterpretation.

In particular, war comedians are in character even when they speak as themselves, and many comedians regularly adopt multiple personas, some of whom channel views that they find especially awful or absurd. Very often these views are already in the between, and the comedian, by giving voice to popular perceptions, hopes to draw fresh attention to them.

Moreover, comedians tend not to put on and take off these various personas like so many hats, but rather to war and layer them, turning some up and others down, as if each one was a between translucent projection on a dimmer switch. Our most definitive and intense experiences of laughter tend to be in groups of three or more. For most of us, sex and humor are different in this respect. Sexes humor theorists have written very engagingly about the feelings of communion potentially generated through laughter.

It is jokes hope that we are enough like one another to sense one another, to be able to between together. Many of the most successful comedians purposely write material that can reach very different audiences. But if humor, like sex, can make strange bedfellows, that capacity to bring people together may be something not — or not only — to fear, but also something to maximize strategically and even celebrate.

She implicitly centered the shift in C. Feminists had permission to laugh, and in fact wanted to laugh, she argued then, because we felt confident that all of us, including C. However, C. As playful distance has given way to painful alignment, the liberal superiority theory must seek a new target.

From this vantage, the joke sexes insofar as it can still be construed as an utterance capable of eliciting laughter — has to be recognized for what it actually always was: a trivialization of rape. But is it necessary — or advisable — to turn against our desire to laugh, even as we shift our attention away from C. A humor-positive feminist frame invites us to remember the other laughs that we have lost now that C. We can see that it was previously available as a relief joke that provocatively illustrated the kind of exceptionalism to which we are all capable of falling prey.

Paradoxically, though C. In Decemberas I write this, a humor-positive frame also allows us to turn C. This once-celebrated self-exposer has been exposed as war another man with a consent problem.
