"Looks great on you, Baby" to preserve my "next time" of passion with them. If only they'd dress themselves in what they actually, you know ... look GOOD in, instead of what happens to be fashionable that month. No ... let ME pick it out for you ... trust me. I know what looks good on you.
Brutal honesty is seldom appreciated, even when it's... well, true.
It's neither honest or true, but congratulations on being the first person here to actually encourage and support that disgusting and misogynistic piece of tripe he wrote. That's certainly a bold choice.

Did you miss the part where he said he lies to get laid? Besides being lies, I don't for a minute believe that there's ever been a woman that actually exists from these chauvinistic scenarios and comments of his that he frequently posts around the board, and if they do, it's probably difficult to pick out clothes for them when you're not allowed within 100 yards of their location on account of being a domineering control freak.

Who knew the gay guy in the room would be the most "manly"?!
That manages to be both insulting and stereotypical to gay and straight men simultaneously. Mazel tov.

When I'm home, or in someone's house, or a doctor's office I pee sitting down to minimize the collateral splash. In public bathrooms, or at work I don't give a crap.

I'd love to wear a miniskirt, but I have knobby knees.

Don't fret it, just wear it and be happy. Show off those legs.

I like men in skirts/kilts/sarongs etc! Long flowing garb often hides little flaws (and they make your legs look longer). Very contrary to those horrible baggy pants that make the wearer look utterly foolish at best and severely crippled at worst.

I actually agree with the gist of 2takesfrakes' post. You can't see your backside in a mirror (unless you are a contortionist). That's why we women like to take friends or SOs with us when we go shopping.
Frankly, I have never understood the concept of "white lies". I much prefer absolute honesty. If a dress or a pair of trousers doesn't suit me I'd rather have my SO tell me (which might hurt for 10 minutes) than have people giggle and whisper behind my back (which hurts far worse and far longer).
What's so bad about a guy telling a woman: "This outfit is a bit unflattering. How about trying another?" I dare say that most of us female posters here would appreciate such a considerate comment, particularly if it was worded diplomatically!

I don't think it's the "being honest" bit people are taking exception to.

Geico should forget about insurance and just do comedy full time.

Yeah, because the part about saving 15% or more is their biggest joke of all.
