Things To Type Into Google

*please keep in mind the healthy amount of sarcasm employed in the writing of this post
Aloha! okay so I was busy studying economics when I came across a point that said: 'the population of India is higher because puberty is reached at an earlier age in tropical climates'. That sounded kind of ridiculous to me, so I decided to google it (it's true, fyi). After a few searches that didn't yield much, I started to type 'do girls in hot climates reach puberty earlier', and as soon I typed 'do girls', the most interesting suggestions showed up below the type box: do girls like shy guys (yes!); do girls like guys with beards; do girls like tall guys (YES); do girls like short guys, etc.
So obviously once I was done reading about puberty, I came back and checked every. single. letter- for guys instead. Let me tell you, most interesting and revealing break I've ever taken. Also this post is giving away how weird I am and what I actually do in my free time..... shit.
I started out with just 'do guys', and the suggestions were 1) like fat girls 2)like curvy girls 3) like short girls and 4) like shy girls.
Jeez. Girls, I feel your pain, but google is really not going to give you the best answers.
(Also if you're really bored just type strange questions into google. Guaranteed free entertainment.)
Anyway, I then went on to 'do guys a-' and got 1) always think dirty (hahaha probably) 2) also have periods 3) always come and 4) actually like kissing
I cannot believe people actually searched this stuff. Do guys also have periods? Seriously? NO because they don't freaking give birth.
'Do guys b' gave me 1) blush and 2) bleed during intercourse. I actually clicked on 'do guys blush' because I wanted to know, and the first thing that came up was '3 ways to make boys blush.' Ah, wikihow. You give me life. And no I'm not talking about the article here go read it yourself.
'Do guys c' was sort of heartbreaking. Do guys come back? According to Queen Swift, sometimes they do, and sometimes they don't. Google certainly can't tell you if your particular guy under these particular circumstances will come back. This puts into my head the image of a sobbing girl reaching for her laptop and begging google for some answers even though she probably already knows the truth. ouch. moving on.
What I find the most interesting about this is the way that girls seem to club all guys into the same box, as though they will all have the same behaviour, especially in relation to girls. That doesn't work and is actually kind of dangerous because generalized answers to these questions only serve to strengthen existing stereotypes. BUT stereotypes aren't completely arbitrary, and obviously we draw conclusions about guys based on the ones we see around us. Does that mean it's okay to say things like 'guys don't like shy girls' or 'guys are always perverted'? Doesn't that strip people of their individual personalities?  For some reason people are really good at putting people they consider different from themselves in one box. Girls do it to guys, guys do it to girls, Indians do it to westerners, everyone does it to Asians, etc. etc.
Anyway, 'do guys e' brought up 1) ever think about their exes (insecurities, again) and 2) enjoy cuddling
I sincerely hope they do. I love cuddling.
F was hilarious. Do guys fall in love, do guys find me attractive, do guys find me attractive quiz, and do guys find tomboys attractive. It seems like most google searches are inspired by insecurities. (I would know, I've spent enough time searching for things like 'do bookworms evr find love pls help' (I'm kidding.) (almost.))
'Do guys h' proved that people really need to pay attention in biology class with 1) have periods too and 2) have emotions.
FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE. BOYS DO NOT HAVE OVARIES OR UTERUSES (UTERII?) AND OBVIOUSLY THEY HAVE EMOTIONS THEY'RE HUMAN.
At this point it was getting pretty boring so I'll just give you the interesting ones:
I got 'do guys-' 1) mean what they say  2) only go for looks  3) only want to get laid (jeez, be more trustworthy, guys)
4) Play hard to get (I'm going to click on this one)
5) Stalk their crush (feel sorry for whoever felt the need to look that up)
6) Think dimples are cute (everyone does, trust me)
7) Watch orange is the new black- I like how this was considered girly behaviour and had to be googled.
8) Say xoxo (there are people who don't say xoxo?) and finally,
9) Do you guys want some cookies?
That's it! I hope you had as much fun reading this strange little post as I did writing it, ciao, xoxo.
