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

They gave me pains, sickness, seizures.

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

Hey at least women have boobs.

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

Have to agree

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

My brother farts and burps all the time, and my mom yells at him and he doesn't care. - Lucretia

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

Men usually weigh more, because they usually have more lean muscle mass, while women have more fat which weighs less then lean muscle mass. So on average men weigh more. - Lucretia

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

True, and if they are fat, its attractive in a rugged way, but if a women gains the same amount shes a lazy slut appearantly - Lucretia

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.

Depends on the job. - Lucretia

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)

True. Plus they don't go through meopause - Lucretia

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!

You can, and I will stare, I won't lie... - Therandom

I'm actually really happy most wemen don't do this

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.

Never wear it, corpse paint is the only cool makeup. But seriously men wear makeup now... sometimes. - Lucretia

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

People don't use those terms here a lot but yeah - Lucretia

The Newcomers

? 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.
? Men Make More Money Than Women

Yes. Usually they are encouraged to get better paying jobs while women are encouaraged to be waitresses and hair dressers - Lucretia

The Contenders

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

Not if your my brother, he wears makeup - Lucretia

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

Sometimes. - Lucretia

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

Um how do I respond got this...sorry God made me that way...?

14 They Don't Need 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.

My girlfriend loves to wear bras.

I actually like wearing bras. They are very comfortable.

It also depend on the size of your boobs. If their bigish it will hurt but if their small they won't really hurt. There is also the trouble of finding a bra the right size and is comfortable.

15 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.

I never got that... - Lucretia

16 They Can Stand and Pee

You guys get to sit down and read a book.

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

Not many lines either. - Therandom

Why does this matter? - Lucretia

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

They can where Speedos, ha ha terrible

Women can wear shorts over their swimsuit if they want - Lucretia

What if they did?

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

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.

Hard t'believe, what with such a stunning puss... Uh, cat:).

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.

Women tend to have more that can be messy - Lucretia

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.

True. Women usually lived a few years longer on average - Lucretia

This is a bad one...

This list... Sigh.

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