Lie #5: Women can’t handle bitterness
The Truth: You’re stupid
Hopefully, none of you grew up actually believing that Princess and the Pea bullcrap. Most women don’t aspire to be fragile and weak. Some of us are a little masochistic. Some of us like to have our palates ravaged by big, bold, hop-driven flavors.
Having a vagina has nothing to do with the ability to tolerate, like, or love bitter things. Bitterness, for the most part, is an acquired taste -- for both men and women. Coffee, tea, dark chocolate, red wine, kale, broccoli, olives -- all of these are highly awesome bitter things that most women love. And if we can handle coffee and kale, I’m pretty sure we can handle your coffee-like roasted malts and your resin-like hops, thank you very much.
Lie #6: You can bribe a chick to drink beer
The Truth: Not all of us watch soap operas, and also, your relationship sounds really manipulative
I recently read an article, written by a dude, that addressed the subject of getting women to drink beer, and he recommended trying to bribe us with things like shopping trips and jewelry. That is probably one of the most offensive things I’ve ever read. I can’t speak for all women, but I effing hate shopping and I’ve lost every piece of nice jewelry that I’ve ever been given.
The real issue here is not that your lady-friend/partner/lover doesn’t drink beer. The real issue is the whole bribing thing. Beer is pretty damn fun on its own, and if you need to bribe your better half to do something fun, then you might have to reevaluate your relationship.
