Top 10 Hardest Things About Being a Guy

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 Has to Lead In Relationships

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

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

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

2 Susceptible to More Genetic 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.

I actually didn't know this. Great.

3 Pressure Not to 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.

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

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

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.

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.

5 More Likely to Be Falsely Accused of Rape

Even if you’re proven innocent, it’s most likely not going to be mentioned in the news. Society will hate you, your family and friends will most likely ditch you, you’ll get fired because of the mere accusation, and you’re millions of times less likely to get a new job because nobody wants to be assossiated with you.

If a man did not rape a woman, but she claims he did, the chances of the man being the one believed are pretty slim.

6 Unwanted Erections & Ejaculations
7 Harder to Make Friends

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.

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

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.

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

10 Vulnerable Spot Between the Legs

it doesn't hurt, just get punched A LOT or be born without them just like me and BANG! No pain. Or get used. When you are REALLY angry or want revenge OR simply try to don't care, ignore or get distracted, the pain get out.

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

I often hear that thing gets in the way a lot...

11 More Likely to Receive the Death Penalty
12 If You're Not Manly, Then Others 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!

Just be you boo

13 Most of History's Worst Human Beings Are Male
14 Not Able to Flirt Their Way Out of a Speeding Ticket
15 More Likely to be Viewed as Sexual Predators
16 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.

17 Not as Pampered

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

18 Women’s Rights are More Enforced Than Men’s Rights

Only in the USA and more western countries

19 Lack of Abuse Shelters

If you’re a man, there are very, very few. Not to mention, women are actually more likely to abuse men. In America, anyways.

20 Longer Prison Sentences

Women should get sentences exactly as long as men’s (depending on the crime, obviously).
