This Comedian Just Pointed Out What Dudes Never Think Of When Asking A Woman Out

Louis C.K. is one of my favorite comedians because he manages to find the hilarity in our routine and both make it funny and insightful. To me, the best comedy is comedy that sticks with me and helps give perspective on things I may have never considered dissecting. I often forget how intimidating the dating process might be for a woman, and this was a hilarious but much needed reminder. Bravo to the ladies who give us a shot.

Unfortunately, this video has been removed. Here's the best part though:

“How do women still go out with guys, when you consider that there is no greater threat to women than men? We’re the number one threat to women! Globally and historically, we’re the number one cause of injury and mayhem to women. ... You know what [men's] number one threat is? Heart disease.”

You can see another great post about how different the dating world is for women right over here.

FACT CHECK TIME!

What's that? Why are we fact-checking a Louis C.K. bit? Well, funny you should ask...

See, technically, heart disease is also the #1 threat to women's lives. But our handy dandy fact-check army also found that more than four times as many women are physically assaulted by an intimate partner in a year (1.3 million) than from die from heart disease (290,000). So, uh, Louis has a real, factually based point here, folks. Dang.
