Yeah, I hate it when people (especially women) say stuff like that.

I think a lot of women like to moan their life is a lot harder than it actually is. Apart from periods and painful labour, it's not that bad being a woman/girl in most situations. Both genders have their good points and bad points.

I'm a female and I disagree. Anyone can have it tough to say the phrase "I'll rather....".

Trust me, men make up for the grumpyness woman have. *cough* manperiods *cough*...particularly when they're hungry haha.

I complain on a daily bases how men have it a lot easier, but to be honest I wouldn't change anything in the world. I love being a femalejust as much as I hate it :L

Why do you think that?


(and I'm not talking about discrimination / glass ceilings, stuff like that- but the everyday / almost everyday / monthly stuff that makes being a woman a general pain in the @$$)


Such as?


(looks like I'd better answer...)

Start with the hair. Longer hair = more fuss mostly. I know men can have long hair and women can cut it short if they want, but if the hair is really short you don't even have to comb the thing and it'd almost just settle into place all by itself unless you want to go with the gelled look. Blow dry hair, comb hair. It's not as easy for short-haired peeps (mostly men) to have a Bad Hair Day.

Then it's shaving the legs plus other places besides the face. Ok men can do it too but most of us (probably) don't. More stuff to take care of.

After everything sticking out of the skin gets taken care of, it's the skin itself! Again, sure men can do makeup... "Can", but probably mostly don't (one slap of deodorant / some other odorous liquid doesn't count); So that's more time spent in the bathroom. There's probably some other stuff I don't know about or just don't want to know about the poking / trimming / whatever those things are, so I'll move on to the next items.

Once out of the bathroom, there's the Picking What To Wear. Now I'm willing to make the concession that yes, women don't have to care about that at all. However, many apparently do and given just how much different varieties of different clothes they have (again, some women may not have much... caveat) it's going to take a bit more time in just going through and picking out an outfit. Well, maybe I'm just not too fashionably inclined so my own closet is not the epitome of variety, but you see where I'm going with this... (I'll skip the accessorizing bit since it's a repeat)

Besides the stuffs that's just on their bodies, there's this palpable "thing" that sorta goes on between women. Kinda hard to describe. I wouldn't really call it competition because it's not really a contest as much as "keeping up". Women don't actively "compete"; It's an analogue of passive aggression- A "passive competition". Sure, men strut our e-peen car-peen whateverelse-peen but women? Somewhat whole other level altogether. Instead of macho bravado chest-beating, it's... vanity, for the lack of a better term. Yes, "vanity" can be pinned to "chest-beating" but the ego conflict between women isn't as simple and thus scary (instead of just the plain dumb almost-ironically-endearing-by-comparison)

Of course, attached the sign "...TO ME" to everything written above. I've left all of it out from the post to minimize the "oh no no noononnonoonon" that it'd bring.

I kinda died a little inside there.. If that's the biggest pet peeves that would make one desire to be a male... I simply have no words..

I don't "desire to be a male" since I'm already one, but I wouldn't want the extra fuss.

Besides, when I hear "stalker" or "predator" I don't think of some guy being a target as much as a gal.

Well, I've done the long hair thing, worn a skirt or two in my past, and can generally say it's more about how fussy the person is rather than the actual clothing or hair issues.

and skirts kinda rock. If you can find a nice black pleated one with rivets or something equally cool. Much freer than pants. And despite what people tell you, a kilt is just a god damned male acceptable skirt.

I assure you that it's much more than just a skirt thing
