I'd hate to be a man

    Men have to carry heavy objects and are considered 'sissy' if they aren't strong or love working outdoors.
    They can't show their emotions because it isn't 'manly'.
    They are the main providers in most households, meaning that they can't just decide to quit their job because they want to pursue a different venture.
    A woman can wear shirts and pants. A man is shunned if he wants to wear skirts & blouses.

    So please, tell me why you would want to be a man?

      Someone has to do it. Someone has to be a man. Not everyone can be a woman.

    men find dirty jokes funny...there is no need to worry about "offending" someone and having the Human Resource Department pay you a visit.

      No, Mutiny, I have to have two pair.  The law requires heavy work boots for work.  If it warn't for that it would tennis shoes for weddings, church and winter; bare feet the rest of the time. big_smile

    OK, Wry, here it is:

    Men don't carry heavy objects; they have an F150 for that.  They carry objects that women find heavy but aren't, really.  This is impressive (see next paragraph) and useful.

    Men don't have emotions, except for lust, and they just go ahead and show that one.

    They can quit their jobs anytime; they just go hunting to provide then.  Women, on the other hand still have to wash clothes.

    No MAN would want to wear a skirt (except for a few Scots and we don't talk about that) so that's not a problem either.

    It's good to be a man!

    condescended to?  Do it and see what happens.
    I'm fine with being the underdog. I've been small all my life and all it's done is teach me to look for other ways to get what I want. Don't underestimate the power of a woman...or do, it's all the same to us.

    I've always wondered...what do men do with their "junk" when they're riding a horse or a bicycle? That stuff just seems like it would always be in the way!

      I've always wondered...how come girl's bicycles don't have a crossbar along the top, between the seat and the handlebars?  Seems to me the boys would have a more pronounced injury in a crossbar 'mishap' than the girls would...yikes

      No...I'm not being insensitive...

    All I have to say was I was laughing like crazy when I saw Wry's thoughts. And I was persuaded to become a woman. No joke. Then I read on to Wilderness's and almost Sharted my pants. Which makes me love that I am a guy!! Sorry girls!

    Frankly, the advantages are vanishing in the U.S., but do still exist.  Mainly in aging.  Because men gain no advantage of significance by how they look, getting older doesn't hurt them, and in some cases helps.

    Women have youth and beauty as a significant source of power and access for the first four decades of their lives, and it evaporates quickly for most after that, often leaving them to rely on power sources that, if not developed in their youth, they can suddenly discover are horrifically unrefined.

    The only real advantage to being a male is strength, but that becomes increasingly less important as technology develops. Once the advantage of strength is reduced to pro-sports, we will have to compete 1 on 1 with women, and we will be at a huge disadvantage given the fact that a beautiful woman will always have the advantage on a man if all other things are equal.

    Hey you guys in here... we're running a 30 minute hub contest.  See the forum thread on it.  It will be fun.  Come play.

    See, that assertiveness was demonstration of how manliness works.  smile  Plus it keeps me from being a hijacker.

    Come play.  You know you want to.

        Habee, it's more of a man's contest. To make them feel good about their 'skills'. I'm only participating so the men don't feel too much like they're not up to our level.
