I’ve known women. For instance, my mother is a woman, as is my girlfriend. And that’s just TWO! In knowing these beautiful majestic creatures, I can firmly say that being a female is tough. Sure, there are pros to womanhood, like being able to get free drinks at the bar, but does that really make up for having a period or fearing for your safety when you’re alone at night? As men, I believe we take a lot of things for granted, and so do these ladies below, who took to Reddit to share the parts of having a Y chromosome that make them jealous.
Men have way more pockets per average outfit, and the pockets we do have aren’t very useful.
Flat chest. Why can’t I just go for a run without struggling with a sports bra? Sleeping on my stomach is uncomfortable AF. Plus, back issues.
I find male bonding fascinating and adorable. Never experienced that sort of bond without petty drama or agonizing over really dumb stuff.
Not bleeding from your nether region for 5-7 days every month and feeling like your uterus is trying to bust out of your body like a newborn Alien and horrendous back pain to boot probably takes the cake.
My boyfriend can roll out of bed, take a quick shower, and throw some clothes on in under 15 minutes. Lucky bitch. I could do that too if I wanted to look like a wet muppet.
I think men get a longer deadline for getting married and starting a family. Current economy and trends have really thrown a 5+ year delay on most women’s plans to get married/move out/have a baby and considering female fertility does have pretty set boundaries, it adds a lot of stress.
Being able to pee your name into the snow.
YEAH, THIS WOULD SUCK
Not being the one who has to go through giving birth to a child.
HOT & BOTHERED
For me it has to be being able to go into a bar on their own for a few drinks without being bothered. My brother, dad and brother-in-law do this all the time and I couldn’t imagine doing it.
GET ME OFF OR GET OFF ME
Being able to get off so easily. I’d love to be able to have an orgasm every time I have sex, but most of the time I’m not doing it for me. Same goes for masturbating. So quick and easy! I need mental clarity, privacy, clean sheets, vibrating implements etc.
All of your body hair is socially acceptable and doesn’t need to be shaved every couple of days.
Not being treated like a fucking moron while getting an oil change.
CAN’T WE ALL JUST BE ALONE?
Not being afraid of traveling alone, or walking alone at night in a city, or riding public transport alone, or meeting people from online, or going to festivals/concerts. Basically just not being afraid to do stuff alone in public.
