Notobvious things you shouldn't say to men

Inspired by the recent post of things that might cause some females to become upset, I became curious about some things that might bother some men. Previous post here: http://ask.metafilter.com/165175/Notobvious-things-you-shouldnt-say-to-women
Please understand that I am posting this without any intention to cause trouble or press any buttons. I am honestly very curious.
I understand that gender and sex are ambiguous and that we cannot easily categorize or generalize people. I also don't mean this to undervalue any other persons unique experience--females typically have to deal with so much worse than do men.
For myself, living in Korea, I get a lot of direct opinions; for example, if I have any facial hair EVERYONE comments on it--usually not positive. I had the same in Canada; however, it is magnified here. I can understand where people are coming from without being bothered by it; however, sometimes when I forget that I have facial hair and someone points my attention to it I become distracted.
This post was deleted for the following reason: Honestly, the thread this is copycatting was reaaallly borderline and chatty in the first place and a huge pain in the ass to moderate; doing it again for a reflexive now-switch-the-gender sequel seems like not a great idea. -- cortex
