A writer asked what men like and the answers were great

Writer and illustrator Aubrey Hirsch jokingly asked her Twitter followers what is a “universal thing that most men like?” because she was writing a comic and “just realized that I don’t know any men in real life. The tweet inspired an avalanche of funny responses.

Hirsch is the author of “Why We Never Talk About Sugar,” a collection of short stories, and his work has appeared in The New York Times, Child, American Short Fiction, and Time.

The interesting thing about the responses is that they weren’t the typical stereotypes about men. She didn’t have many people talking about sex, sports, or toxic masculinity. Instead, a lot of people mentioned very specific male behaviors as if they were talking about some weird species they discovered in the wild.

There are two things that got the most comments on his post. First, men like to throw heavy objects into bodies of water. Preferably, the bigger the rock, the deeper the body of water and from the highest possible vantage point.

The other monitors the construction sites. Obviously, the phenomenon is so popular in Italy that there is a specific word for this type of person in Italian.

Here are 19 of the best answers to the question “What is the universal thing that most men love?”


When asked why men love watching construction sites so much, a poster on Reddit named justdaps had the perfect answer. “I just find it really satisfying and interesting to see the process behind things being built,” he wrote.



I’ve seen guys do this and I’ve done it myself plenty of times. I usually stand in front of the TV when I really want to focus on what’s going on and don’t want to be distracted. This usually happens when watching sporting events or the news. It’s also a great way to use your body language to let others know that something really important is happening on TV.




When we do this 99% of the time, we’re pretending the backboard is 10 feet tall and we have the ability to dunk a basketball. There are two types of men, those who can dunk and mere mortals.


As a man, this one is near and dear to my heart. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent with my friends tossing lines of “The Big Lebowski” back and forth.

“Beautiful groundhog.”

“The guy remains.”

“Say what you want about the principles of National Socialism, man. At least it’s a philosophy.

One movie that climbs the most-cited ranks is another buddy pic, “Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood.”

“Okay, it’s too hot. What can we do against this heat? … “Rick, it’s a flamethrower.”






Unfortunately, it’s true and men do way too much.


Obviously, after reading the responses, Hirsch knew what was going to happen next. No need to be ashamed of going viral. It just means you’ve created something people love.
