Question What does he mean "Because you're a girl" !?!?!?!? - September 16th 2010, 11:14 PM

I hate this response, and I get it all the time from my friend Corey. In his texts to me, he'll ****** do that to his cuss words. I ask him why he just doesn't type it out, it's not like it will offend me or anything, and his response is always "It's because you're a girl". I always reply back "So? I get more offended when I'm called a witch by a girl then when I'm called so by a guy." I say witch, because I don't really like cussing, to either sex. He just always replies "Because you're a girl". Guys out there, what does he mean? I'm completely lost!

I'm not a guy but I think he's just trying to be respectful. I don't think he means any harm by it, he would just rather not outright swear to a lady. Quite respectable.

Yeah, it's an old fashioned thing. And it's out of respect. Males weren't supposed to curse in front of women, just like women weren't supposed to use that kind of language.

It might be like that, but I've had to talk him out of doing it with everything! He treats me different because I'm younger and a girl. He used to tell me that when he said something is wrong, he couldn't tell me because I'm a girl. I understand that, to an extent. "What are you up too?" "Stuff." "Fun, like what?" "Can't tell you, you're a girl."

He used to do it with everything, but he never held back on telling me dirty jokes.

I understand him not telling me certain topics, like I won't tell him when I'm on my period, or if I'm pissed at another girl. That's girl stuff. But he won't tell me anything besides "You've lost the game".

He's trying to be a gentlemen by covering up his swear words although he'd be best off not adding them to his text messages to start with. Some guys don't think its right to swear near girls. Seeing how some guys find girls that swear to be unattractive myself being one of them. I personally cant stand it however I just expect it more from guys. I no its not fair but thats the way I see it.

As everyone else has said, out of respect. Also perhaps because he's afraid he'll be accused of "corrupting" you.

I just lost the game.

I agree with everyone else. It sounds like your friend is trying to be a gentleman and avoid bringing up certain words/subjects in your presence. He could also be teasing you by holding back every now and then... which is fairly typical of guy friends when they're around girl friends. If it bothers you that much, I would calmly try to talk to him about it again, and ask him to speak his mind (no matter what the word/subject may be). Otherwise, just let it go. "Boys will be boys."
