Although women respond to men's humour because they have been programmed to, imitating it themselves can be difficult, and because we have a narrow mind on what is considered 'humourous', women's unique contributions to humour are often ignored and underappreciated.
    society's humor hmm I believe everyon got a difernt kind of it according to their understanding. You cant jsut force someone to find things funny. Certainly society plays a role, but as I see it when it comes to mainstream humor these days I cringe more than laugh because ive seen it so many times I just cant take it anymore.

    Based ony my observations women are the most reactive to this kind of humor like they dont really mind to think this through and just want to make an impression. Im not talking about every woman out there ofcourse, but mainstream humor as the one more projected by social media is more accepted by women.

    Men take it too, especialy the kind that have a lot of female friends (they adapt to their humor or they just have similar tastes) but i see them having other kinds of weird humor as wel, maybe better or worse than the mainstream,
    it depends on your preferences to judge this one i guess.

    So i believe that certainly mainstream plays a role, but its not like everyone follows it and the ones who follow it more are usually women i guess.

    That gets me back on my previous statement, that women dont need to perfect their humor because society doesnt really expects them to. Only whose who really want to tend to do it.
    Men on the other hand are expected to be good at it to be either more socially accpted or chosen by females so they put more effort in it.
    So i women could usually be taking the mainstream as raw and using it while men according to their preferences could change it or try to adapt it to their standards inorder to actually be funny.

    Yes, I think (like most things) there are several factors.

    What do you mean? several factors that play a role which makes men to be considered to have better humor?
    Or several factors that form each individual's humor type in general?

    You didnt say anything though about agreeing or disagreeing with the ones I pointed above.

    Considering the fact that you believe that women's humor is underappreciated because theygot a different than mainstream and I pointed the opposite about them mostly prefering the mainstream.

    I think in (post)modern society, it's much harder to really differentiate between what is mainstream and what is not mainstream, as even traditionally "non-mainstream" things have been commodified and commercialised. I think it can be argued that women find it harder to imitate humour in a patriarchal society as there is a subconcious psychological pushback from their innate selves not to conform, and to instead express their unique selves and insights (although this is often buried deep and masked).

    What would be your examples of mainstream and non-mainstream humour?
