Settle a bet! Men who spit on the ground while in the presence of a woman are more likely doing so because: (A) that are showing off, or (B) they find the woman unattractive and want to ensure her disinterest.
C) they have a loogey they need to get rid of.
We're marking our territory. It's natures way.
None of the above.
It's discussing to everyone except spitters. I saw a young woman spit while riding on the back of a motorcycle. What was her intention?
If I'm spitting in front of a particular woman, I definitely don't care whether she is attracted to me. Because I assume most women would find that gross.
The former. Not sure why they think that's showing off or impresses females.. Maybe it's something that dates all the way back to Neanderthals or an earlier ancestor species.
Nobody I've ever talked to believes this
Maybe neither. Maybe they have mucus in their throat that they can't swallow. Yes it's gross, but humans will be humans.
It's cultural, in many cases. My sweet, thoughtful, wonderful husband does it because that's what he (and I) grew up with. Drives me nuts, but it's a "fish gotta swim" thing, apparently.

Actually I prefer neither. My husband will spit on the ground in my presents especially when we're out on the farm working. But never in public and absolutely never in the presence of a woman why would anyone think this is showing off. And I can guarantee if anyone spit toward a woman with distain he would make them regret it.
Are there other choices that make more sense? Maybe they just don't care what the woman thinks about them.
Was going to say neither as well. It certainly isn't B as we aren't a third world country ("capitalist pig dog" *spits) and it really isn't A because any guy in their right mind doesn't spit to pick up a girl ("how you doin?" *pituu). If I'm forcing to choose to settle a bet I suppose I'll pick A, just know it's not the right answer lol.
i have a feeling this is going to be a popular comment
Yep, it's what I came here to say
