Hardest Things About Being a Guy

GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER
Although women may have the hardest lives of the genders, men have some huge struggles as well. And often people don't pay much attention to them.

The Top Ten

1 Susceptible to More Diseases

Women have two X chromosomes, when Men only have one. This means they have a greater chance of getting diseases that are passed genetically. This is one of the things that leads to men having shorter lives. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

I actually didn't know this. Great. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

2 Has to Lead In Relationships

They are the ones to propose, and also the main performers in sex. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Not to mention planning all the romantic dates and flowers and even sometimes massages. - Songsta41

I think that women should have just as much of a right to lead a relationship as us men. - NicholasYellow

3 Can't Be Emotional

I'm a girl, I think that it's mean to be laughed at for having emotions. When I was in grade school, my little brother, he was eleven, broke his arm and leg, he obviously cried, and when he came back from the hospital, all the boys were laughing and making fun of him. Why can't a boy have feelings without being bullied?

I'm a really emotional person, but when I cry, people think I'm either acting like a baby or that I'm gay. Meanwhile, if women cry, they get sympathy and people feel bad for them. - NicholasYellow

Guys often have to be brave and unemotional, or they will be thought of as weak. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

So you can be unemotional all you want but it doesn't change who you are just be you and no one else.

4 Less Supported by Others; More On Their Own

I've noticed this with some of my friends, who happen to be male. Boys such as myself tend to be particularly competitive, and when one of them struggles or stumbles with something, they are often kicked when down. I do my best to support my friends in times like these, but the people around me can really be heartless. My female friends, on the contrary, always look out for each other. It's one thing I like about them. - PositronWildhawk

I often find that male friends are not as supportive of one another as females. Guys are often made to work things out on their own. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

8 Struggle More With Breakups

Science has found that men's health problems often increase after breakups, and they are often more down. Guys probably also get less support after breakups. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Added with the fact that we get less support means a pretty rough time for us. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

9 Can Be Drafted

Although it does make sense not to draft women, it kind of sucks that guys are forced to leave the country without a choice. And not just leaving, but risking getting blown up. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

It's so sexist that women aren't forced to do it as well! - NicholasYellow

Whenever I get hit in the genitals, it feels like my stomach hurts.

Just because some males smell, doesn't mean we all do. There are also women that smell bad, not just men. - NicholasYellow

12 If You're Not Manly, Then Other Men Think You're Gay

This always happens to me just because I'm not a meathead like all of the other boys at my school. I'm sorry that I prefer academics over sports, but that doesn't make me gay! - NicholasYellow

17 Your Voice Changing During Puberty

I used to be a really good singer before puberty because I had a really high vocal range and could hit the high notes in songs with a modal voice, but now I have a horrible voice with a very limited range on both low and high notes. - NicholasYellow

18 Not as Pampered

The girls pamper themselves with an array of things they like, while we boys get nothing.
