If you put a woman on a pedestal and try to protect her from the rat race, you are a MALE CHAUVINIST PIG.
If you stay at home and do the housework you are a PANSIE.
If you work too hard there is NEVER ANY TIME FOR HER AND THE KIDS.
If you don't work hard enough, you are a GOOD FOR NOTHING LAYABOUT.
If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay that is EXPLOITATION.
If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND FIND SOMETHING BETTER.
If a man gets a promotion ahead of a woman, that is FAVOURITISM.
If a woman gets a promotion ahead of a man, that is EQUAL OPPORTUNITY.
If we mention how nice she looks, that is SEXUAL HARASSMENT.
If we keep quiet, that is TYPICAL MALE INDIFFERANCE.
If we cry, we're SHEILIAS.
If we don't, we're INSENSITIVE BASTARDS.
If a man thumps a women, that is WIFE BASHING.
If they thump us, that is SELF DEFENCE.
If we make a decision without her, we're a CHAUVINIST.
If she makes a decision without us, she is a LIBERATED WOMAN.
If we ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that is DOMINATION.
If she asks us, its a FAVOUR.
If we appreciate the female in frilly underwear, we're SEXUAL PERVERTS.
If we don't notice, we're POOFTERS.
If we like a woman to keep in shape, we're SEXISTS.
If we don't care, then we're UNROMANTIC.
If we try to keep ourselves in shape, that is VANITY.
If we don't, we're SLOBS.
If we buy her flowers, we are AFTER SOMETHING.
If we don't, we're FORGETFUL.
If we are proud of our achievments, we're UP OURSELVES.
If we aren't, we're NOT AMBITIOUS.
If we ask for a cuddle, we NEVER THINK OF ANYTHING BUT SEX.
If we're totally wrecked after a bad day at work, we NEVER GIVE A STUFF ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES NEEDS.
If she has a headache, it means SHE IS TIRED.
If we have a headache, it means WE DON'T LOVE HER ANYMORE.
If we want it too often, we're OVER SEXED.

Since we are on the subject.
Female keywords, and their meanings
1. "Fine"
This is the word women use at the end of any
argument when they feel they are right but can't
stand to hear you argue any longer. It means that
you should shut up. (NEVER use "fine" to describe
how she looks. This will cause you to have one of
those arguments.)
2. "Five minutes"
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the
five minutes that your football game is going to
last before you take out the trash, so women feel
that it's an even trade.
3. "Nothing"
"Nothing" means something and you should be on
your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe
the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you
inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing"
usually signifies an argument that will last
"Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine."
4. "Go Ahead" (with raised eyebrows)
This is NOT permission; it's a dare! If you
mistake it for permission, the result will be the
woman will get upset over "Nothing" and you'll
have a "five-minute" discussion that will end
with the word "Fine."
5. "Go Ahead" (normal eyebrows)
This is NOT permission, either. It means "I give
up" or "do what you want because I don't care."
You will get a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just
a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine"
and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes"
when she cools off.
6. "Loud Sigh"
This is not actually a word, but is still often a
verbal statement. Very frequently misunderstood
by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are a
complete idiot and wonders why she is wasting her
time standing here and arguing with you over
7. "Soft Sigh"
Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft
Sighs" are one of the few things that some men
actually understand. It means she is momentarily
content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe
in the hope that the moment will last a bit
8. "Oh"
This word -- followed by any statement -- is
trouble. Example; "Oh, let me get that". Or, "Oh,
I talked to him about what you were doing last
night." If she says "Oh" before a statement, run,
do not walk, to the nearest exit. She will tell
you that she is "Fine" when she is done tossing
your clothes out the window, but do not expect
her to talk to you for at least two days. ("Oh"
as the lead to a sentence usually signifies that
you are caught in a lie. Do not try to lie more
to get out of it, or you will get a raised
eyebrows "Go ahead," sometimes followed by acts
so unspeakable that I can't bring myself to write
about them.
9. "That's Okay"
This is one of the most dangerous statements that
a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means
that she wants to think long and hard before
deciding what the penalty will be for whatever
you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with
the word "Fine" and in conjunction with a raised
eyebrow "Go Ahead." Once she has had time to plan
it out, you are in for some mighty big trouble.
10. "Please Do"
This is not a statement, it is an offer. The
woman is giving you the chance to come up with an
excuse for what you have done. In other words, a
chance to get yourself into even more trouble. If
you handle this correctly, you shouldn't get a
"That's Okay."
11. "Thanks"
The woman is thanking you. Don't faint and don't
look for hidden meaning. Just say "you're
12. "Thanks A Lot"
"Thanks A Lot" is dramatically different from
"Thanks." A woman will say "Thanks A Lot" when
she is really ticked off at you. It is usually
followed by the "Loud Sigh." This signifies that
you have hurt her in some callous way. Be careful
not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh,"
as she will only tell you "Nothing."

I grew up to believe a "poofter" (or "poof") is a very timid man, possibly effeminate and maybe gay. It could be used for all three types.

I'd ask what a SHEILIAS is, but I have the feeling it's the same as poofter and pansie

Myself, I thought I heard the last of those words in high school.
