We all fall somewhere on the gender spectrum and so do the people we hope to enjoy shirtless hugs with someday. That's just straight-up science. But what do our respective genders say about us? Are we all mere stereotypes living under the tyranny of hormones and learned clichés? Tons of self-help books, religious beliefs, legit legislation, and of course observational stand-up comedy have sprung from this rich subject matter. While we can all agree that 100% of women definitely love shopping and 100% of men definitely love leaving socks on the floor and shaking a silent fist behind their mother-in-law's backs, maybe it'd be more fun to think about how men and women are actually the same. Because really, deep down aren't we all just total weirdos?
To help illustrate this theory, here are some .GIFs that answer some of life's most basic questions from both the male and female perspectives of Fox's New Girl. Men might be from Mars and women from Venus, but as these .GIFs prove, it's pretty clear both planets are weird as hell. (You know, in a sexy way.)

Men might be from Mars and women from Venus, but as these .GIFs prove, it's pretty clear both planets are weird as hell. (You know, in a sexy way.)
