Do girls have it easier, or do guys? (32)

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.

Take a police situation, for instance. A male police officer has to walk on tiptoes around a female. He can't search her. He can't take her down unless absolutely necessary. A woman can scream and cuss all she wants at a cop and is more often than not shown a great deal of leeway. A guy even LOOKS at a cop in a vaguely menacing way, and he's down on the ground in cuffs.

Or if a woman claims that a man raped/assaulted/robbed her. Chances are, the guy is going to jail, even if he never came near her.

Women are allowed to express emotion. Men are considered weak if they do. We feel the same damned things you do, but we're forced to repress those things.

I STRONGLY disagree with a previous poster that claims that women are perceived as "less intelligent." Women are constantly portrayed as the "smarter" sex by the media (see commercials and sitcoms, particularly), even though it's been statistically proven that adult men are, on average, smarter than adult women by approximately 4 IQ points with a greater tendency toward spatial reasoning and mathematics. While this is an obvious appeal to the profitable 25-54 year old female demographic (which spends the majority of the spendable money in a household), it's still disgusting.

The list goes on, but I want to stop this at a mild rant rather than go into a full-blown speech.
