Men Reveal What They Think Makes A Woman ‘Trashy' And It's So Offensive

Everyone's entitled to their opinions, and therefore, mine is this: “Trashy” is such a loose term.

Sure, no two women act or carry themselves the same way, but it's extremely hard to define someone as trashy without actually knowing them or their background.

To me, trashy refers to actual piles of garbage. My mind immediately turns to a dark, stretchy Hefty bag, filled with Band-Aids and leftover meatloaf.

How To Have Casual Sex, Explained With A Tea Party

When I think of a trashy girl, I think of a girl living her best life. If she's out there partying and doing her thing, you can't judge.

I also think of a girl in a literal trash bag, but in a classy way. Think Lady Gaga circa 2010, when she rolled up to the MTV Video Music Awards in a meat dress. Eleganza at its finest, I tell ya.

But referring to a girl as trashy just for living her life probably means you're overwhelmed by jealousy because of how cool she is.

Now, not all men may agree with my above reasonings.

A handful of gentlemen took to Reddit to express their thoughts on what makes a woman “trashy,” and… well, their responses are the actual worst.

Apparently, being trashy means being promiscuous in public.

most of the time when I've thought "jesus this girl is trashy" she was doing sexual things for attention in public.


This guy thinks being trashy is the female equivalent to being a douchebag.

A woman being "trashy" is much the same thing as a guy being a typical "douchebag" or "tool".

Shitty clothes in the wrong situations.

Obnoxious tattoos

Over use of profanity

Resorting to violence or the threat of it

Just being a generally shitty person quite honestly.


Adulting: 20s vs 30s

If screaming “YAAAAAS” constitutes as trashy, consider me an actual dumpster.

Wearing clothing that doesn't fit the situation.

  • Club dress to a restaurant/job interview/everywhere
  • Exercise clothing to church

Badly done make up

Screaming Yaaass/Woooo


OK, so hardcore drugs may make you a little trashy, but still, no judgment.



The Benefits of Smoking Weed Before Your Workout

According to this guy, not being able to apply eyeliner will turn you into human trash.

Impolite, violent, loud, poorly dressed, bad makeup, easy.


Are you a bad parent? Yep, then I guess you're trashy to this guy.

SHITTY KIDS that they are not parenting.

It's not the kids fucking fault: their mom is still trying to live the trash life and party, and pay as little attention to the kids as possible because they were accidents. But the kids have terrible behavior because they can't get any fucking real attention or structure from their mom.

The sure kicker of this is that mom posts on facebook "MY KIDS ARE MY LIFE MY HEART AND SOUL" and then you see those /r/trashy pictures of them trying to get men interested by posing in shitty clothes with their fat tits and ass hanging out with a fucking trashpile of a house in the back and the poor kids are in frame.

Fuck that trash. I left Florida so that I could literally go a day without seeing that garbage every day of my life.


Why Being A Parent Turns You Into A Big Kid

All of these guys deem tattoos to be a clear indication of trashy.

Bad tattoos are a big indicator.


  • Face piercings

  • dress inappropriate for the occasion

  • over abundance of tats

  • badly applied makeup/giant hoop earrings/fake tans

  • being overly noisy and argumentative at inappropriate times/inappropriate places

  • being inconsiderate, stupid, and mean

  • addictions and dependencies

  • having kids way too young or with deadbeats that they have zero commitment with

  • dounced in cheap perfume

  • tries to solve things with violence especially getting other to do the violence for them

  • Crazy unemployable hair styles

  • poorly done cosmetic surgeries


Remember that a tattoo is art and a lot of art sucks. Attaching low quality art to yourself for a lifetime is trashy.


This guy is apparently an eyebrow expert and thinks overdone brows are the trashiest of trash.

Eyebrows that look like they were drawn on with a thick sharpie or plucked so much that they are no longer there.


Male Writers React To Mean Comments Their Female Co-Workers Get Online

Oh, sure, the spelling of someone's name definitely signals they're trash.

Wearing clothes that are way too small or way too big.

Wearing clothes that are falling apart.

Dirty nails

Covering up your day old makeup with more makeup.

Really cheap or homemade tattoos.

If your name ends in an "i" the trash value doubles.

If your name is Krystal, the trash value doubles.


This guy thinks being trashy is more about attitude than looks.

Having no or little manners. Being inconsiderate and obnoxious in public. Being needlessly antagonistic. Having a typical trashy ghetto attitude. Abusing alcohol and acting like a cunt. Dressing /acting like a slob or extremely inappropriately for a given social setting.

Really being trashy is more about being a selfish, narcissistic asshole "who jus don give a fuk!!" more than anything else.

While trashy women may have ugly or stupid tattoos, too much makeup, stupid looking piercings, or other tacky accessories; being trashy is more about attitude and personality than how one looks. There's plenty of trashy looking people that are actually not very trashy at all.


This guy thinks making a personal Facebook status equals trash.

Airing their dirty laundry in Facebook.


Why Political Posts Have Ruined Facebook

And, well, I guess these men are fashionistas because they're judging you on your outfits.

to much make up
badly aplied make up
weird tan
poor fashion sense
flirts with everything
wearing highheels she can barely walk in


Wearing fleece PJ pants in public. Bonus points for greasy hair.


Like I originally said, everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

And my opinion is that these men are completely wrong… except for maybe the meth one. Don't do drugs, kids.
