THE job – captioned, “AITA for farting in front of my partner” – reveals how the unnamed woman, 24, and her male partner, 30, have been together for almost two years, but only recently moved in.
She explained: “He’s been really frustrated with me lately because he’s been saying I fart too much at home and it disgusts him.”
“I tend to fart multiple times a night, and he gets super grumpy, accusing me of doing it on purpose (I’m not).
“I feel like I should be able to fart at home without judgement.
“I told him I was fed up with his attitude and acting like I was some kind of freak for doing something everyone else is doing.”
The woman then described a shocking turn of events in their relationship, saying, “We’re currently in separate rooms not talking because of the fight.”
She asked, “Am I crazy to think farting is normal?” IATA?’
The post received an overwhelmingly favorable response from Reddit users, amassing over 1,000 comments and nearly 900 upvotes.
User – @throwaway1083672513 – asked fellow Reddit users for advice on the pungent issue causing a rippling rift between the couple, which amassed thousands of comments.
One person said: ‘NAT (Not The A**hole) – Women fart. Everyone farts. Not feeling comfortable enough to fart in your own house because this guy has an archaic belief that it’s not very feminine seems miserable.
Another puzzled user agreed, saying, ‘NTA, do you think women poop shine? He looks very stupid and also ridiculous. Make your point by freaking out every time he farts/sneezes/burps so he sees how absurd he is.
One user wrote: “He looks like a man who needs to be packed with a good pregnant fart.”
Another puzzled person asked, “Considering you live together, and that’s a long-term thing, what are you supposed to do?” Never fart in front of him?
Some people have even responded with their own toxic testimonials, with one saying, “I spent 9 years with someone who only allowed me from afar in the bathroom or while I slept.
The woman’s post received an overwhelmingly positive response from Reddit users, amassing over 1,000 comments, telling her that farting is natural for women.
“He would look at me in such disgust and then shame me if I let one slip. When I started dating after that, the first thing on my list of qualities to look for was someone I could fart in front of.
One woman, however, somewhat agreed with the partner’s point of view rather than the original poster’s.
She wrote, “I need to know how bad hers is because I might agree with her SO. My husband always does it and his are filthy.
“They smell like rotten eggs and linger for HOURS. I get mad at him for doing this outside the bathroom because it’s pretty hard to eat when you’re choking on the smell of rotten eggs.
