All Women's Talk

17 Undeniable Things Every Talkative Woman Understands ...

By Lyndsie

Women and men both have the potential to be talkative. It's unfortunate that women tend to carry the chatterbox stereotype. My dad is the manliest man who ever manned, for example, and he's so chatty that sometimes my mom and my wife pretend to fall asleep while they're listening to him. The sad fact is that women are seen as the talkative group, and talkative women are often vilified. They're told that they have too many opinions, that they share too many opinions, that they're being loud or uppity, that they make no sense … ugh, ugh, ugh! You get the point, yes? If you're a talkative woman, I'm sure you know all the stereotypes. I'm sure you've had one or more of the following experiences, too.

1 People Always Want You to Shut up
