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

It's really embarasing

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.

When you get older, you will realize that looking good was never important. Being happy is.

This one kind of depends on what you mean. If you mean just looking good, I agree, but men definitely have it harder when it comes to things like weight. I see guys get body shamed a lot and the people that claim to be against body shaming don’t seem to care, but if you body shame a woman, they will treat you like you killed someone. - 3DG20

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

To the person who said just don't get pregnant, there is rape done by men who can't get women to love them. So there. Rape can get you pregnant.

Abortion exists, even though I am against it. Also Birth control pills. - Manowar9

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

At home me and my mum do it when it happens, not bothered its just something that happens, it's a human thing. Even outside.

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 not true. Do you know how many comments I’ve seen complaining about Adam Gontier being fat after he gained a little bit of weight and how many comments I’ve seen about a girl saying, “You’re not fat. Don’t let the haters bring you down girly! You are beautiful just the way you are”? - 3DG20

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.

But men who are sexually harassed are less likely to be taken seriously.

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!

Topless, as it bare chest showing? Yeah, some people don't want to see that - Manowar9

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.

Girls don't have to wear make up too - Userguy44

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

Isn't a well-dressed, well spoken woman called a "Lady"

The Contenders

11 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

Again, people can get raped.

12 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

Again, you don’t have to wear makeup. - 3DG20

13 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

No, it’s the other way around. Woman can cry over the smallest of things like breaking a nail and they’ll still be taken seriously, but if a man cries, even after losing a significant part of his life like a family member, he’s a baby. It makes absolutely no sense. - 3DG20

14 They Don't Need to Wear Bras

My girlfriend loves to wear bras.

I love bras they keep your boobs in place - Jada

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 find it comfortable. - XxembermasterxX

15 They Can Stand and Pee

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

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.

I wouldn’t want to do that. - 3DG20

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

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.

1. Men do not get praised for sleeping around. If anything, he is called a cheater.
2. The vast majority of people who slut-shame women are other women.

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.

I don’t mind a swimsuit, but I don’t like wearing bikinis where 95% of my body is shown. - 3DG20

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.

You know female perverts exist too. - XxembermasterxX

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

That part is true. Anything looks better than me first thing in the morning, in fact, anything looks better than me, period. - 3DG20

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

WOMEN ARE UGLY WITHOUT MAKEUP... they are like another person...

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.

I wanna die lol

This is a bad one...

Yeah that’s true - Jada

Girls don't either.

22 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

23 Women Had to Fight to Vote
24 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.

25 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

I hate this, what is the difference.
Yes men are stong physically
but we women are strong mentally

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

Yeah, that doesn’t mean they don’t have to worry about it at all. - 3DG20

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

But when a male does get raped by a female he is almost never taken seriously.
Oh yeah, and men are more likely to be falsely accused of rape than women.

28 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.

That just means they’re not butthurt. - 3DG20

29 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

30 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

31 They Have Testosterone

How does that make it easier for them? - anonygirl

Testosteron is basically build in muscles no matter what

Umm... What?

32 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?

Because, dear or darling voter, heel do not make your bones longer just make you seem taller and slim... - YouKnowhoIam

33 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

34 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.

This is very common. And lesbians are always stared at by men because they are considered "hot". And gay couples it's just like "Oh okay cool."

35 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 one of the most BS things I have ever heard and this list is a prime example of how they do get discriminated! - 3DG20

36 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

There are people that think girls are better too. - 3DG20

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

Really? - shawnmccaul22

38 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

39 Men Work Less in the House Than Women

Men also work more outside of the house than women in most cases though so we’re even. - 3DG20

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

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

40 They Don't Cry About Some Blood

But seriously it's time to stop

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"

42 They Enjoy Crude Cartoons More Than Women (South Park, Family Guy)

Really Dude? I’m 15 I watch Regular Show, Rick And Morty, Pokemon, SP So

43 No Feminism Stereotypes.

So the stereotypes of men supposedly being sexists pigs are nothing? - 3DG20

44 They Don’t Have to Wear High Heels

Very uncomfortable and bad for your feet.

45 Women are More Prone to Obesity and Autoimmune Diseases.

You do realized that men can also have an obesity weight, not just women.

46 Males pee standing up and females sit down to pee

Males have been BLESSED with the power to pee while standing up.
