Top Ten Reasons Why Men Have It Easier Than Women


The Top Ten

1 Don't Have Periods

Think about it. Its 5-8 days of continual blood coming from the butt every single month until you either get pregnant or can't ever be again. It comes with an additional week of PMS, along with the actual period, which comes with cramping, ruined clothing, leaking, bloating, and feeling gross and tired. Plus, it isn't society inflicted. - keycha1n

Actually, it comes from the vagina. At least that's what I think, because that's where babies come from. - Therandom

This is the only one that ALL women have and that is natural and no society imposed. So yes, as a man, if blood ever comes outta my mini-me, I would totally freak out.

Every month I have to take more Ibuprofen than I ever had. I've seriously ruined like, four different pairs of pants. My life was great until about five months ago when I started... - RockFashionista

This Is The Only Logical Thing Here On This List,But As A 13 Year Old Boy,We Are Discriminated At School,We Are Called Sexist Pigs While Girls Get To Do Basically Whatever They Want,In An Argument Between A Boy And A Girl,A Girl Is ALWAYS Right According To Teachers,Were Told That We Don’t Have To Do Anything But Shut Up While Girls Get To Do Stuff They Enjoy At School,I Know,Because This Happens At My School,Women Are Going To Rule Men For Eternity Someday,After All,They Are Better Than Us,A Society Where Either Gender Is Not Equal Is A World That I Don’t Want To Live In,But I Would Rather Be A Women Because I Would Be Treated Better And Not Judged

2 Less Pressure to Look Good

This is not even remotely true. Men also have it harder when they want to look good. Women don't have to eat like pigs and they will look good but men have to work out and go on strict diets.

I disagree with this. There is just as much pressure for guys to look good as girls. If not, there would be no overly muscular action figures or make models.

Women don't need to look good they just choose to. Most people want to wear make than have to

Normally the pressure comes from other woman

3 Don't Have to Go Through Painful Childbirth

I never understood this one. Women don't have to go through a childbirth. Just don't get pregnant and that's it!

Want to have a child? Yeah. This is what we have to go through if we want that. Imagine your skin ripping from the hole of your penis to your butthole. Yeah that's what's happening to us.

No but their Hands during the Child birth will be in pain! - Curti2594

Then don’t have baby’s - Jada

4 They Can Fart / Burp Without Feeling Guilty

Bull. I don't see anyone saying that women should never fart/burp, so how can the feel guilty. Yes, I am a boy, but this is just common sense. Your body is constantly trying to regulate itself and farting/burping is a part of that. Why that is so hard for women to accept I will never understand.

I was brought up NOT to do these nasty bodily outbursts in public as it's "Most unladylike" Why is it funny than men can get away with it? - Britgirl

We can burp and fart around our friends and they can rate it on how funny, loud or smelly it was. If a girl burps then we taken back by it a bit and we take time to try and process what just happened - Danielsun182

Actually, I agree with this one. In grade 10, a boy burped really loud and the teacher laughed. 5 minutes later I accidently burped and said excuse me and I got detention.

5 It's More Acceptable for a Man to Put On Weight

If a man gets fat it's all fine and good and no one notices, how many times to magazines do articles about MALE celebrity weight gain? But every magazine spins out of control when a women gains weight, look at a magazine there is almost always an article ridiculing a female celebrity for weight gain but if a man gains weight it's no big deal. - ToptenPizza

Exactly. Men cam gain weight and beat his girlfriend half to death and still have a successful career with millions of fans, yet a woman can put on a few pounds and she's fired, shunned, ridiculed and mocked. - CatCode

Why is this. A thin woman would happily settle for a fat man but a fat man is always looking out for a thin woman.

This is vice versa, actually. When a woman gets fat, everyone's like "you're beautiful not fat, everyone should respect you" blah blah blah. When a guy gets fat, he

6 Less Likely to Be Sexually Harrassed In Workplace

Whoever added this item to this list, look up Lauren Southern's video where she talks to a cab driver being harassed by many different older women and you will change your mind.

The sad thing is, that some people take this as being that men don't get harassed. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

But, women are MORE LIKELY to be sexually harassed. That doesn't mean men don't get sexually harassed.

Haha but they arr more likely to get killed and be a victim of every other crime besides rape - Jada

7 They Age Slower

How is that possible? A woman of 50 years old and a man of 50 years old are equally 50 years old on this planet. If you mean the looks it counts only for the outside ( and I'm doubtful about that either because men loses their hair for instance quicklier than women ) but on the inside the organs age also equally. Besides, don't they say that women lives longer?

My teacher is in her 20s and has gray hairs, while my mom is in her 30s with no gray hair!

Yay. We get to look old and gray faster. So fun. (Heavy sarcasm)

Exact opposit my dads 50 with gey hair and my mom has only a few grey hairs

8 They Can Go Topless

Well I guess Girls can too but yeah haha

Also if your chubby like me then Topless isn't allowed - Curti2594

In three states, women going topless is illegal, and in all the other states you can get in trouble for it. So don't even think about saying we can, because we can't!

Only trashy men go topless lol. Honestly if you date a guy who doesn't wear his shirt in public, you need to reevaluate your life.

Wait so you want your boobs to jiggle every were that doesn’t feel right on your cheats - Jada

9 Don't Have to Pay Out On Makeup

Erm, girls don't have to either. This is a sexist list if ever I saw one. - EvilAngel

You don't have to wear makeup and guys can wear makeup too. It's something most people do for fun

Like in magazines when they put in pictures titled, "WHO IS THIS CELEBRITY WITHOUT MAKE UP? " It's never a man.

I'm a boy. I actually wear eyeliner. - Marine_Soldier

10 A Well-Dressed, Well-Spoken Woman Is Called A Snob But A Well-Dressed, Well-Spoken Man Is Called A Gentleman Or "Distinguished"

That wasn't a criticism. I was saying that it's ironic that women who are well-spoken are generally referred to as snobs, and it's unfair on them. It is nonsensical that men get a positive look if they are well spoken and dressed, whereas women don't. So sorry if I sounded as if I was calling them snobs, which, of course, they aren't just because they're dressed well and well spoken. - PositronWildhawk

PositronWildHawk: our paths cross yet again. I am a well-spoken woman and because of my job, I am also well-dressed and sometimes find myself at upmarket functions. My neighbours are forever calling me a snob. None of them take the time to get to know me to find out that I am FAR from a snob and in fact DESPISE snobbery in all forms. Make sense now?

Yes, have experienced this but I do love a well turned out "distinguished gentleman" (sigh)! - Britgirl

I dress nice and people think it's my parents but I dress my self - Adventurur2

Feminism... why do you lie like this.

11 No Makeup to Take Off at Night

I actually prefer women without a whole pile of makeup. They look less artificial. - PetSounds

Sometimes I forget to take it off. I wake it up with black EVERYWHERE.

I Respect Woman but I will agree with this one! - Curti2594

I don’t have to wear make-up and so does everybody else. In fact, I hate make-up so this doesn’t apply to me - MarioNinja101

12 People Take Them More Seriously

Except when a man is in emotional pain. Then he gets called a p**sy or told to "man up".

Here's an explanation. Some of us look menacing. - Therandom

Definitely. Women are always treated not as seriously, it's really annoying. - keycha1n

Most boys feel that ther masculinity is so fragile they can't do what they want just what a 'guy' would do

13 Cannot Become Pregnant

I mean, sure, you get a kid out of it (unless you kill the baby through abortion -_-) but really it still hurts like hell.

Women don't have to deal with testicles being hit, so it's even. - Zehmysticboi

It's a blessing and a curse

Ok? But women can just not choose to get pregnant, so what’s the point? - MarioNinja101

14 They Don't Need to Wear Bras

My girlfriend loves to wear bras.

Same here. In the summer, guys can just take off their shirts. Where I live girls should only strip down to a T-shirt.

I love bras they keep your boobs in place - Jada

It’s more comfortable for women, that’s just the way it works. It’s not our fault, men just don’t need to - MarioNinja101

15 They Can Stand and Pee

You guys get to sit down and read a book.

Your life must be really hard, if you complain about this.

I sit and pee anyway. I don't want to stand and aim, I just want to sit and relax.

Why the frick does that matter? - B0S5J4M3S

16 A Woman Who Sleeps Around is Called a Tart. When a Man Does the Same He is Known as a Hero

It is a ridiculous double standard. There's already a ton of repercussions awaiting members of both genders who are promiscuous, in hindsight it seems foolish to add this pressure onto women, but the reality is it is so deeply ingrained in our society it is not going away. I guess that's a conceit. As for the other items above this, I'll remain dubious. - Ned964

Not necessarily a hero, but he does get praised by everyone.

Not true. I get called a slob when I do it.

A key that has the ability to open many locks is a master key. A lock that can be open with any key, is useless.

17 They Don't Need to Wear a Swimsuit/Bikini

They can where Speedos, ha ha terrible

What if they did?

My bikinis always come off when I'm swimming and it sucks. They just have to wear shorts.

Bitch please I love me a cute bikini - Jada

18 Don't Get Creeps Staring at You

That's just a stereotype. I mean, not all of us men are creeps. Some girls are creeps too. I mean in both 4th and 7th grade, I've been chased by these immature girls. It's ironic, as I've had a crush on several girls in the past, and I wanted them to like me back. Sometimes I just want peace. I guess I've really learned a lesson there. - ethanmeinster

Well that's grade school. I'm Not saying guys aren't stared at too but you mostly hear about girls getting harassed because it happens more often

Creepy guys ALWAYS stare at me. And I'm in my freshman year of highschool, so I'm 14, and I get like creepy 25 year olds hitting on me and staring and its really creepy.

Stop stop stop staring really that’s a reason - Jada

19 They Look Better Than Women First Thing In the Morning

That is true, because of the fact that sometimes when women wake up there hair is all messed up sometimes, but when men have there hair not all that messy. - PewDiePie

I think women look adorable when they've just woken up, at least some do. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

I think women are so sexy when they wake up with their hair in a mess.

I think it is funny how women look when they wake up in the morning

20 Men Live Shorter Lives

That's because men have more stress, more harder things going on in their life. In other words ; it's because men have no easier lives than women.

This is a bad one...

Yeah that’s true - Jada

This list... Sigh.

If you want to live a short life, take a gun and shoot your brain off.

21 They Don't Have to Shave Their Legs / Armpits

"However, men do have to shave their beards."

During menopause women have to shave their face, so...

Saying that women have to shave their face during menopause doesn't disprove what I said about men having to shave their beards. Men have to groom themselves and shave parts of their body just like women, so shaving is not a good example of men having it easier than women. Just look at the men who are called "neckbeards".

Men can become Hairy beasts that's for sure! - Curti2594

No one likes hair on a women its just preference and good one to and no one likes and man to really hairy either have you’ve seen male swimmers they shave everything - Jada

Bitch nobody does - Jada

23 They Get Called Better Drivers

I always hear this. "Women drivers suck." Or if someone is driving, and the driver in front of them is doing something wrong, it is automatically assumed that the bad diver is a women.

Because it's normally true

I don't think a bad male driver would get called a good driver. if you're bad at it, you're bad at it.

That's because we are better drivers, 70pc of all women drivers have accidents putting on makeup.

24 Men are Deemed the Stronger Sex

They ARE the stronger sex. They have more muscles and bigger muscles.

And women are deemed the more flexible. - 906389

Well Physical they are and that whats stronger means that's one of definitions so just Except it ans move on with your life - Eligha

25 Men Don't Have to Worry About Being Raped Nearly as Much as Women Do

And women don't need to worry about being killed nearly as much as men becaues you know men are more likely to be a victim of other crim besides rape - Jada

26 They Don't Live As Long.

Are you suicidal

Men have to endure on average several years less of the stress and hassle of being alive.

Is..I this a joke. this is something "better" about men. really? women are strange...

27 They Don't Get Offended by 99.9% of Things in Public No Matter How Dumb It Is

This list is dumb

Seriously, so many feminazis are butthurt over the dumbest things. - Zehmysticboi

This is an individual thing. GENDER JUST DOESN'T MATTER HERE.

28 Don't Have to Meet Society's Standards

Girls have to have so many things on them be perfect to be considered popular. Big boobs and butt small waist short shikirts and shorts or tight pants. Makeup has to be perfect and hair takes so much longer to do. We must be well groomed, smell nice, and hairless. Nails done and wear clothes that are in style

29 They are Far Less Oppressed in Third-World Countries

This is so true, women have always been oppressed everywhere and still are in some places. But for men they're fine, it's so not fair. Being a woman is truly unfair

30 Lesbian Domestic Violence

What is better than one woman to a man who is sexually aroused? Two women. you are correct on this though. I just wanted to give my five cents.

31 Being Told That They are Discriminated Against When they Actually Aren't

This is exactly what this list does. If you want to see a place where women actually are oppressed and discriminated against, go to any third world country. Besides, this list wouldn't even exist (or at least would not have so many people agreeing with it) if there was actual discrimination against women in Western society.

This is actually untrue. There will always be some people who will discriminate women. Just like, there will always be some form of racism and homophobia in the world. Because some people don't like change and they like being dominant.

Just see this list. This is how we are discriminated against.

This is why I hate feminism...this fact right here is why I HATE feminism. I could sit here and wright a 4,834 paged essay about how guys are discriminated against!

32 Some People Think Men Are Better Than Girls

Yes, men are better than female children. Adult women are more commonly referred to as girls, compared to calling men boys. The word "girl" has become a subtle, almost innate, descriptor attached to women to establish women as young, innocent, childish, and incompetent. Even women sometimes refer to themselves as girls because it has become so accepted, yet it still carries harmful undertones. It can be irritating for a successful woman to be referred as a girl as it can make her accomplishments not seen as important.

And some people think women are better than men. Men are better at certain things and women are better at others.

Some men think men are better then woman, some woman think woman are better then men

Same vice-versa - Zehmysticboi

33 They Have Testosterone

How does that make it easier for them? - anonygirl

Testosteron is basically build in muscles no matter what

Umm... What?

34 Men Can Get Dirty and It's Fine but When Women Do It's Weird

Really? - shawnmccaul22

35 Being Tall is Less Awkward When You're a Man Than than When You're a Woman

Men are on average 5-6 inches taller than women. For this reason, I would rather be a tall guy that towers over girls than a tall girl that towers over guys. I would rather be normal than weird and awkward. - anonygirl

I disagree. If that’s true, then why do so many women wear high heels?

36 Don't Spend Half of Their Lives Worrying

Because men don't have any problems to worry about at all. Men usually hide their worries because they need to be strong. The same goes for their emotions. They just don't show it.

Girls and women worry so much

37 Men Work Less in the House Than Women

Men will binge watch football while woman are cleaning, cooking e.t.c

some men work ( sometimes if they are single) but rarely

38 They Don't Cry About Some Blood

But seriously it's time to stop

39 Women Had to Fight to Vote
40 Men Make More Money Than Women

That's because an average man works higher paying jobs than a women. Women, also shown buy studies, like to take more days off. Also, not to be sexist, but it's just a traditional way of life, more men work and women stay home to take care of their children. And if both worked the same job andhours, same payment would be given. Lastly, men work jobs where they are so much more likely to be killed then women, so that calls for higher pay. - SoldierOfFortune

41 Men are encouraged to pursue subjects such as maths, engineering and science. Women are not. This has resulted in a severe deficit in women working in those fields.

Maybe woman are often not very interested in maths, engineering and science. They usually are more into social jobs. But that doesn't have anything to do with subject "why men have it easier than women"
