i'm sorry....( especially for bumping this thread lol) , but: since when being a woman equates being pretty? never met any ugly woman?
ok, then my opinion: it's easier for men because they all look like brad pitt. all they have to do is wear sunglasses and a white shirt, and a crowd of horny girl gathers. if i was a man, my only concern would be to wear sunglasses. whereas as a woman, i have to raise kids 24/7 and not have a life if i want society to accept me . how is that fair?

I dont think anyone here has said all women are supermodels. But the ones that do have looks have more power than good looking men, theres no denying that. also you dont have to raise kids, its a choice between 2 people to take that responsibility.

Women by far. As much as the media criticizes the "war on women" in real world conditions women have more power than men. Lets do a couple of examples.
Job interview.
Man goes in dressed up for an office position, talks about why he should have the job blah blah. Woman goes to do the same thing and can if she so wishes to gain an advantage by being flirty to the guy interviewing her while having the same credentials as the man. She is more likely to get the job and theyll call it "being more sociable"


These only make sense if the interviewer is a man.

It's once a month...not bad


How would you like to bleed once a once between 5-7 days? Have up and down mood swings, pelvic pain ranging from mild to severe? Have aches and pain and icky skin? There's more than just bleeding involved.
Honestly, I wouldn't hesitate to slap a guy that said that to me.

As for who has it easier...it depends on life experiences and the level of suffering. You can't just say one sex has it worse than the other.

I'm asocial, more logical, mildy good looking (I really don't think or care about it), but I've never worked and I struggle with self help skills. Being a female hasn't really helped me become successful.

Just saying, I have all that happen to me besides bleeding. Don't even get me started on the itching, I've been taking medicine for it for years and nothing seems to help.

Being a female hasn't helped YOU personally but there's no denying it is more acceptable for a woman to never have to get a job. It seems you just aren't using your feminine charms to your best ability. Working (besides my weight) is really the worst thing about my life. On so many levels. Physcially, I can barely handle it, the.sheer amount of people I have to talk to overwhelms me, I have to stand in one possition all day so when I get home my feet are pratically bleeding, I could go on all day.

Honestly, at the end of the day a woman can become a prostitute and make good money. That's what I'd do. And men care much less about looks, contrary to popular belief. No man, even an extremely attractive one, would ever make as much money at that as a women would, simply women are sexier.

Now, every once in a while you'll hear about it the other way around. My cousin has a job, yet her husband doesn't. He's a stary at home dad. But this is beyond his control.

It seems all women got on men with this debate is bleeding, which is something natural, that can't really be helped. I'm not sure physical things should be part of this, because most of it can't be controlled. My man problem is much worse. I'd rather not discuss that one any more, but it caused a lot of problems in school.

"Looking really pretty.
Have kids"


Wow. that's a very sexist way of looking at it. There are a lot of difficulties associated with being a woman, but those are two that, if I had to make a list, would never even make it on that list.
