Ok, so I have my time of the month and why it is that I can't just say that and people take that as a reason not to go to work is beyond me. J/K LOL I just don't want to go to work, but I have to. In fact, I should be getting ready right now. But, I am grouchy and I have cramps.

sometimes I just wonder what it would be like to be a man. They don't have the babies, they don't have periods! Lucky boys!

Oh, how glad I am to see somebody else say exactly what I've been thinking the past few days! I'm right there with you right now. I always wonder how it feels to be a worry-free guy. I also had to go to work last night and forgot to take medicine before. I was miserable, but I got a compliment from my boss at the end of the night so I guess I hid it pretty well.

It's only a week. Pretty soon you'll/we'll be back to the fun part of being a woman

Sometimes I think I'd like to be both sexes... kind of omnisexual or whatever you would call it. Some girl things are good... some things (like periods) are the grossest, worst, most obnoxious things ever. And men's underwear is so much more comfy than women's. Oh and don't even get me started on women's shoes versus men's shoes.

AAAAMEN!

My husband will help with anything I ask of him. But as far as figuring out what needs done and what has been done and what's coming up and what might come up.... Nope. I wish for a few days the only thing I had to think about, worry about or plan for are the things someone else told me to do. It's no wonder my anxiety level is through the roof most days.

Like I said, he will take care of ANYTHING. I just have to be the one to realize it needs done and delegate it.

Sometimes, just BEING a woman is exhausting. (Intended to be read in a very tongue in cheek way!)

I always wore men's suits instead of women's. They are so much more comfortable and made so much better. Have you ever tried on a pair of men's dress pants? They are awesome. Why don't they make woman's dress pants that way?

Also, the idea that you could get up and just run a comb through your hair and the cowlick and whatever are just acceptable blows my mind. Then there is the waistline. They don't have to hide how big their waist is, just throw that belt around it and let it all hang out and so what if they have a large middle. Totally OK for men.

All of this besides the not having to deal with child birth and periods.

Not that fond of my period either but I could never consider being a man. Not that there is anything wrong with being one or wanting to be one, I just am not. In a way I understand how people who desire to have sex change operations feel they were born into the wrong body. I would feel terribly trapped if I had been born male.

As far as my monthly visitor goes There are times when it can be incapacitating. I would be happy to be done with it. So I do understand what your saying.

My mother worked in a men's pant factory for many years. She often wondered why women's pants weren't sold like men's pants, by the waist size and inseam. I would much rather have proper fitting pants than worrying about vanity sizes.

As for wanting to be a man, I would love to be able to let things just roll off like my DH does. I wouldn't want to deal with the man "junk" though

I don't want to be a man (well, sometimes maybe) but I wish society was set up to make it as easy on women as it is on men.
I wish I could take a shower and then just brush my hair and my teeth. Then I get to put on comfy clothes and * comfy shoes*. And I'm ready to go in 15 minutes.
No taking 20 minutes to fix my hair, 10 minutes to put makeup on, put on clothes that try to camouflage any bumps or bulges and put on shoes that end up hurting my feet. Not to mention shaving my legs and plucking eyebrows!

I do wish women had an off switch for our periods though. I don't need it anymore and there's no easy way to make it stop.

I've thought about it but decided I'd rather be female. Yes, the monthlies are a bear but beyond that the other female problems are things we bring upon ourselves.

If WE as women stop judging other women for their choices in fuss free living.. hair styles, not wearing makeup, not keeping mani/pedis done then WE would be freeing each other up from most of what you all are complaining about.

I make my clothing choices from both the women's wear and the men's wear. Men are stuck wearing men's wear. I can choose a pair of men's pants that fit me better than a more expensive women's cut and I can choose a nice skirt from the womens department. I like the longer sleeves and slightly larger neck holes on men's tees so I buy them instead of feeling I have to shop women's and be frustrated by a poor fit. Same with shoes.

Women can choose to not follow a stressful career path. It is ok for women to be "unambitious" or "artsy" Not so ok for guys. They are expected to be ambitious and provide for a family. If they don't then are failures. IMO that is far than the things as women's issues that are unpleasant.

I don't know - I like makeup and I think women have more choices for style of dress. And this isn't nearly as true as it used to be:


They don't have to hide how big their waist is, just throw that belt around it and let it all hang out and so what if they have a large middle. Totally OK for men.


My husband and many of his friends are obsessed with fitness and their waist size. And no, none of them is gay. He's much more worried about it than I am about mine. LOL. I think the difference is that it's more compartmentalized for men and doesn't affect how they feel about themselves in other areas of their lives - for women, feeling fat is more likely to affect our overall self esteem and spill over into the rest of our lives, making us perceive ourselves as less worthy.

I love their clothes! They always look so good in their clothes, and women always have trouble finding nice stuff. Plus, their jeans and dress up clothes always look so comfortable. And you don't have to spend time with your hair and make up, and their skin doesn't age. I wanted boys just because I think life is easier for them.

I never understood why men wanted to be women, but I can always understand why a woman would want to be a man.

I will say that I too know more men that are into fitness and looking good (no body fat, etc.) than women are. And I know more men that watch what they eat than women. My husband eats so healthy, and me and our daughters love anything, healthy or not! But my husband has a weak spot for chocolate, and my daughters and I like it, but not as much.

I don't notice men being worry free as some mentioned. My husband always worries about money, his job, stuff like that. So do my other male friends. Most women that I am friends with are SAHMs and don't worry nearly as much as our husbands do. (Sorry, what I mean is that my friends and I don't worry about losing our job like our husbands do. My husband has a great job with great pay, but he tells me that he still worries about losing his job. I guess I worry about it too, but not to the same extent. I am so distracted by running around with the kids to activities from 4-9, so it keeps me sane. If feel like my mind is so distracted with kids, cleaning, laundry, cleaning, cooking, cleaning, that I don't worry about the big stuff as much).

voltagain, great points! You are so right. Many issues women have are brought on ourselves. And yes, we can wear whatever and it is fine. But men are judged by what they wear if people think it looks feminine. Great things to think about after reading your post.

I'm a SAHM (looking for work) but I worry plenty. It's not the bed of roses a lot of people think it is.

I think we both have it rough equally. Sure, getting ready is easier for guys, but they have the stress of being the traditional bread winner (in most cases).

I'm the one that handles the details of day to day life so I'm always worrying about something but that goes with the territory of being an adult, not just a woman.

OMG, yes!

DH has been up since 5. He has made chili, thereby destroying the kitchen and he's watched TV. We are going on vacation soon. No help in planning, hasn't cleaned or picked up anything, and there are five loads of clothes that he could fold while watching the Bears game downstairs. Or he could do yard work while the temp is still nice, or help DS with his homework.

I finally asked him what did he want to do... His answer whatever you ask me to do. The point is I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO ASK.

And he got pissy with me
and DD when We ate some chili because he was making that for dinner.

It's like that ecard I saw; a woman's brain is like explorer with 2,546,792 tabs open All.The.Time. All he is thinking is chili. Football. Work. Erin will take care of everything else.

I would love to not make decisions for a couple of days. Plus the shoe and pocket thing someone mentioned above.

I can honestly say that I've never thought men had it easier, nor have I ever wished to be one. True they don't have a period, but with the hairy legs and armpit, the whole "penis thing" (awkward, in the way and for younger men, prone to selfinflate at inopportune times), their lack of ability to multitask....

The only qualities I envy about DH I don't believe are gender specific..they just happen to be things he's better at...or inherited. Like his fast metabolism or his ability to sleep very soundly...

ETA...I forgot the facial hair....i only have to shave my legs about once a week, I'm just not very hairy...so the daily shaving would drive me batty....

i have been envious of the ability men have to walk out the door and cease to worry/think about the rest of the family. even when i am at work, my wheels are constantly turning with work crap AND mom/family crap.

DH will call me sometimes from work at 7 or 8pm... he says he was busy and lost track of time. lost track of time?! i cannot imagine.

i have to know what time it is cuz DD calls after school or texts to let me know she is leaving, going home, staying late for choir or whatever. if i don't hear from her by a certain time, i need to track her down (doesn't happen often but point is, i am *always* thinking about them). i can't "lose track of time at work" because if i do, no one will be at the bus to get our boys.

i would EMBRACE menstruation, if i could dodge that other stuff sometimes...

Looks like I a the odd man (woman..haha) out when I say, no, I have always been 100% pleased about being a woman. When I think about it, I never have wished to be a man. I have only ever felt very happy to be a woman.

I have always looked forward to motherhood, and the unique ability to carry a child. Sometimes periods are a pain, but honestly ever since I discovered the diva cup ( thank you, peas) they are no big deal.

I don't necessarily conform to society's beauty standards, though. I wear make up once a week and on special occasions, and pretty much never wear uncomfortable shoes. I used to worry more about it In high school, doing my makeup and hair, but now I guess I just don't see the big deal. It doesn't have to be complicated if I don't make it so.

Not for a freakin' minute! All that being responsible stuff would have me hiding in a hole somewhere. I don't like doing anything that gets me dirty. I'd hate to have to look after a car or be expected to know how they work. To be the one responsible for shoveling snow or mowing grass or getting the garbage down to the road - no thanks!

Their clothes aren't 'gussie uppie' enough for me either. There's not enough variety in the styles to suit my tastes. Or enough color. Their shoes are boring.

I do buy mens turtlenecks though, as I'm very tall and need the sleeve length. And I once had a pair of mens harness boots that I dearly loved. But overall, the thought of having to deal with life as a guy is scary to me.

I'm another who has never wanted to be a man or sees it as an easier/better option. Much of my thoughts are along the lines of Volt's.

I think women have many more options and choices (these days, not so in the past). Women 'can' dress up girly and wear make up and do our nails and all those 'fussy' things, but we don't 'have' to.

I was actually just thinking yesterday that as women we can wear make up to hide flaws or accentuate our positives. If I was a man, I wouldn't have that same option. On the surface, it seems easier, to just run a comb through your hair and go. But I like having the option of hiding dark circles or making my eyes look bigger and brighter or contouring my cheekbones.

We can SAH or be ambitious career women and that is just fine. Thankfully, it is also becoming 'okay' for me to SAH too, which I am glad to see.

I do think there is more pressure on men to 'provide' and that many relationships are still traditional in that respect. To be 'protectors' as well.

As a woman, I can cry at sappy commercials and be open with my emotions and no one bats an eye the way some might at a man doing the same. Men are still, for the most part, pressured to be 'strong' and unemotional.

Rarely are women judged for enjoying more 'manly' hobbies and pursuits. If you're a woman and you hunt, or ride a dirt bike, etc. that's socially acceptable. There's still a bit of a double standard if a man admits to liking to knit or enjoying decorating or flower arranging, and his masculinity is sometimes called into question. I know there are some people who will say a woman is too masculine, but there's not the same prejudice.

I think women actually have more options and more freedom than men do and don't see any advantages to being a man over being a woman. Other than not having to deal with or worry about period issues. I'm glad to have been able to experience pregnancy and childbirth and nursing though.

Right now, I would like to be a gender neutral being I have had PMS for at least 2 weeks, Aunt Flo is 7 days late and counting, my boobs hurt, my lower abdomen just aches, and I have had that "just about to come on" feeling for the last 10 days And no, there is no chance I could be pregnant, DH was "fixed" 10 years ago. I know when Aunt Flo arrives, she will be absolutely furious....

I don't think I would like to be a man, but I would like to not have the messy bits that come from being a woman. Like a PP said, I could really do with an off button for all that

I actually (well, our daughters help) am the one who does the mowing, car stuff, garbage, mulching, etc. My husband is so busy with work that I do it. I figure it's part of my job as a SAHM and I love doing outdoor work so much more than indoor work. I mow the lawn, and it looks great for a few days or longer. I clean the house, and it stays clean until the girls get home from school.

No way would I want to be a man. Women are smarter and more evolved. And way prettier.



Well, some men are prettier than women....but no one can sway me on the smartness.

I would not want to be a man for anything. I like being a woman, periods and all. I like women's clothes, I see no reason to wear a man's suit when there are so many pretty tailored woman's suit options out there. I like being able to play with my hair and wear it in different ways. I love to hear the kids call me "mama" - at our house they might love daddy, but there is something very special about mommy.

Plus, I really like, well, men. So if I was a guy, I would probably be gay!

Yes, I would not want to have sex with a woman. Personal choice, not a comment on those who do, more power to you if you do. I just don't want a period. Mainly. But also, I would just like for one day to walk in a man's shoes and see how the opposite sex feels/thinks. I think it would interesting. I would especially like to live for one day as my DH and be able to see how he thinks/feels and see if I am a pain in the ass or like just an awesome wife or somewhere in between.

Every morning when I'm blow drying my unruly, thick hair...

I am extremely jealous of my bald husband.

It also irks me that he can pull on a pair of jeans and a polo and look good. Girls have to work so much harder at it!


This, every time.

My husband can get up and be out the door, looking good, in 20 minutes, shower included.

Trading a 10 minute daily shave for a week of misery and an hour of daily prep? Heck yes!

I'll be 55 in January, so I don't have the period mess anymore . But I wouldn't want to be a man, having to shave your face everyday - I hate shaving. And having all that "junk" between your legs - yuck - Hubby is always adjusting himself, seems like an uncomfortable mess to me.

I just wish I was man strong. It seems like I'm continually limited by my physical strength when I am working on our acreage. I have to do a lot of 'work smarter' because work harder is limited when you have limited upper body strength.

No way! I love the way we can wear make up, fix our hair different ways -- and have a gentleman open the door for me!

Once in a way while, usually when I have a migraine, but only for a split second. As soon as I realize that I'd then have 'bits & bobs' then I'm out. Great toys, but I don't want my own set. hocked

I like being a woman. Like some others said, I wouldn't want the bait and tackle. I also think women have so many more options than men.

I love being a woman. One thing I didn't see mentioned is crying. I love being able to cry during a chick flick or whenever and not be ashamed. Men can't do that without a little shame.

I must admit though I am envious of men when I'm standing in a long line for a bathroom. For them it's quick and they don't have to touch a thing. Lucky dogs.

I love being a woman and I have never even considered for a moment that it would be better to be a man.

Wear a man's suit? Oh, hell no.
