#10 – They let their dogs in the car
“Slutty” C-list celebrities are the type to let their dogs in the car, but other women do it too.
One yippy little thing riding on the lap of another yippy little thing equals one big reason women can’t drive.
Because, see, female dog-owners own lap-dogs, unlike men, who strap their rotties to the hood of the car when they need to transport them somewhere.
#9 – They let their friends in the car
Where there is one woman, there is yipping and swerving. Where there are multiple women, there is bound to be a catastrophic accident.
#8 – They obstruct their vision with crap
Tanner claims women all have beads and leis hanging from their rearview mirrors. We’re just trying to compensate because we’re jealous of your truck nuts.
#7 – They sing while driving
A few months ago I was driving in Georgetown next to this guy in an SUV, blasting “Butterfly” by Crazy Town. It was surreal. That is all.
#6 – They use the mirrors to look at themselves
I am guilty of this. I often glance up at my rearview to congratulate myself for never having been in an accident. I once saw a man shaving whilst driving. I am not kidding.
#5 – They make calls and send texts while driving
Men don’t do this? It’s dangerous, but women are no more prone to crackberry addictions than men.
#4 – They have no interest in cars
That’s… nonsensical. Y’all need to read the whole thing.
Women have no interest in cars beyond them serving as appliances of transport. As long as it starts, all is well. So when dash lights flash, components make ugly sounds or smoke appears, it may or may not resonate with the female driver that these are less than ideal operating characteristics.
We are too busy checking our lipstick to notice something like smoke!
#3 – They have no interest in driving
If by “interest” you mean we aren’t inclined to drag race our buddies down the freeway for shits ‘n giggles, you are right.
#2 – They have no spatial awareness
And the number one reason women are bad drivers IS:
#1 – They have no driving gene
Dude is just making shit up to inflate is own fragile male ego. “Women simply do not have the driving gene.” It’s as simple as that, mmm’kay?
Women are raised with the expectation that we are, or will be, bad drivers, due to our sex. Driving is a learned skill, not an inborn ability. I can understand why a woman might be insecure in her skills if the world around her tells her she can’t be a good driver or a competent car owner no matter how hard she tries. Parents, car salespeople, mechanics, piggish Askmen.com commentators… it all adds up.
By the way, it’s not surprising that women aren’t more interested in cars – we are not given toy cars to play with as children, nor are we really welcome in the garage. Auto culture is so male-dominated; most women just grow up thinking they can’t be gear-heads. Luckily our interest (or lack thereof) in car engines has no effect on our ability to drive cars.
