Guys come up to me all the time and complain about how much easier it is for girls for a lot of things. One of them even specifically told me, "Except for periods, girls have it really easy." I got really mad at that and ended up having a large debate with him on whether the social pressures on men and women were unbalanced or not.
For both genders it's pretty hard, but I think each gender has a different type of social pressure affecting them and that's why it seems so easy. Guys are suppose to be dominate and avoid showing emotion which can be mistaken for confidence and allow certain things to be done with ease and girls are suppose to be dainty and passive so they're coddled and taken care of more often. We often don't recognize this because we only see in context of our own experiences.
Girls have it easier:
Women get maternity leave so that they can take care of their child and recover from CHILDBIRTH. Men aren't expected to bear children, they don't spend 9 months being pregnant, all they have to do is spit out the seed.
You have your points, but:
>all they have to do is spit out the seed
> Yet most guys will always wonder what it feels like to bear a child.
>Guys who don't sleep with a lot of girls and are faithful and nice and affectionate = great guy who, sadly, is very less likely to get a girlfriend than his asshole counterpart
OP i feel that you are only looking at this from your own perspective. There are tonnes of other females out there that would think differently on many of the issues you have presented.
I would like to talk about the perspectives from males in general, and the general pressures we have both sexually, socially and in relationships.
Girls have it easier because they're fucking retarded.
Guys got it harder when they have wood
there, discussion closed
OP here. I seemed to have sparked another heated debate. It wasn't exactly my intention, only to see what others thought, not trying to change anyone's views. As such I had refrained from stating my own opinion at the beginning. >>9, the only issue I presented was the "period" deal and that was siding with males. Other than that, anything else in this thread was entirely NOT me. And I am most definitely not looking at only my own perspective, since I'm here right now trying to see what others think about this. Most of my friends are men, in fact, and since I listen to their complaints everyday I was more than inclined to agree with >>2, who stated my beliefs exactly.
All I know is that women have it far easier when it comes to claims of sexual harassment.
Women's claims of sexual harassment at the hands of men are investigated aggressively. Punishment for the accused occasionally happens even prior to the collection and review of evidence. I've experienced this myself, having been falsely accused once before.
This, sadly, is absolutely true. But that's because our society, traditionally (this comes from a survival behaviour in the first place) tends to be protective towards women (child-bearers), and needs men to be "strong" to defend the "tribe".
>I doubt most guys would have a desire to bear a child
Each gender had its own issues and difficulties, and they can't really be objectively measured as more or less difficult.
Can't say since they're not entirely the same (men and women).
>Women are looked down upon in public, and assumed to be less intelligent.
Guys have it a LOT harder than girls do, no question about it. The fact that it's consider anathema to even MENTION the POSSIBILITY that a man has it tougher than a woman in today's society only serves to prove my point.
Sorry about what happened to you.
I'm female, I was sexually harassed too and I reported it the college but nobody believed me; they just laughed and the college folk didn't even bother to ask the guy for his side of the story. They just totally ignored it. I only reported him to save other girls but that didnt work. Oh well a girl is gonna get totally raped by him in the future 'cause of me :(
Girls have the advantage, I mean it's as simple as society tending to expect more from the men.
An absurd example would be a man with a sugar mommy and a woman with a sugar daddy. Who's worse? Yeah, the one with the sugar mommy.
Girls can be weak and it would be okay but guys, naaaaah...
I didn't even read your post, OP, because I can answer it simply by having read the title.
Neither girls nor boys have it better than the other in any absolute sense. Girls have many problems to deal with, and they depend on a many factors, not least of which is the culture and society in which you live. Likewise, boys also have many problems to deal with, which similarly depend on many factors, not least of which is the culture and society in which you live.
That said, boys are totally superior because they can pee while standing up.
Girls don't know what they're fucking missing. Seriously.
I can totally pee while standing. Although my sister calls it hover crafting...
(Psst, thank you, >24! As OP, I agree with you 100%! Or, well, maybe 90% or something...)
lol, I think I state what the OP originally asked. I'm a guy and while overall I think we both have it hard, I tend to lean that women kind of have it harder. I mean throughout history, they weren't even considered equals. I hate how in the middle-east, they are forced to cover their faces in black (in the sun) and have to walk everywhere with a man or be prosecuted.
If I could be immortal, I'd be female.
Why? Because it's mostly men who are victims of violence.
no. guys r only hot between 15-21 and after that they are damaged goodz.
