Women vs. Men: It's not Fair!

Source

Women and men are VERY different. Of course, this goes without saying. What I think isn't fair is that men can take the easy road when getting ready for the day. It takes so much longer for the females to even be considered presentable in our society. Why is that?



Women

Maybe if we had a few more arms, we could be ready faster.

1. Shower: Use body wash, face wash, shampoo, and conditioner. Make sure to shave.

2. Apply deodorant, body lotion, and body spray or perfume. Brush teeth.

3. Select outfit and iron if necessary; get dressed and put on shoes (I'm not even going to get into all the different clothing options.)

4. Apply moisturizer, concealer, foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, and lipstick or lip gloss. Optional: bronzer, highlighter, lash curler, or sunscreen

5. Straighten or Curl hair as desired (needed: straigtener, curling iron, or hot rollers). Optional: Mousse, gel, or hairspray



Men

Yeah, yeah. . .You've got it easy; we know.

1. Shower: use 2-in-1 hair and body wash. Wash face and shave if needed.

2. Put on deodorant and cologne. Brush teeth. Comb hair or rub your hands through it.

2. Throw on a T-shirt and jeans, polo and khakis, or a suit. Put on appropriate shoes.

3. Wait around for the woman to get ready.

Why is it necessary for women to do the things in the women's list? Why don't they just use the men's list?

This is true, but society has put different and more numerous expectations on women regarding their appearance. So, no, they are not necessary. We have bought into the idea that we should look a certain way in order to be accepted by other females and males. Good point, Phil!

Since I don't go out to work anymore, I don't bother with half of that stuff. I've even gotten so I go to the store without makeup! I may look like an old fuddy duddy, but I don't care...

Your welcome, Icbenefield! I'm glad I could amuse you. :)

Susieq42, I don't blame you at all. Whenever I just hang out around the house, I don't fix my hair or put on any makeup. I'm really a tom boy at heart, so I usually just do the bare minimum. Thanks for sharing!

I think that all the effort a woman goes through is proof that in general, society accepts men at face value but not women. If every woman woke up one day and said to themselves, today I will go out just as me, then maybe all the stereotypes about women and how they should look would stop....Just musing here! But really true hub though! I know men who just roll out of bed and no one says anything really!

You are so right, North Wind! If we started a no-makeup revolution, then maybe women would be more secure in themselves with less preparation. I have actually heard that some men prefer women without makeup. That's exactly what I meant about men rolling out of bed! Overall, in my opinion, the society expects more out of women concerning their appearance. Thanks for expressing your insight!

Fun read. Some of the things women do are really simply pressure from society,me thinks ,be yourself.

Very true, sharmanlow! We are the fairer sex, so I guess we have to live up to our name.

I read somewhere that two female coworkers who wore differing levels of make up usually, decided to run a secret test.

The coworker who usually wore a lot of make up, didn't wear any. Other ppl in the office said: Maybe she's feeling sick.

The coworker who didn't usually wear a lot of make up did wear a lot of it on that day. Other ppl in the office said: Maybe she's feeling sick.

I'm not sure what this proves.

(Maybe it does prove that to some extent people get used to the way ppl look...)

Lol. I think you're right; people get used to other looking a certain way. If we change anything other people may think something is wrong with us or that something is new. Thanks for your humorous yet true story.

YW.

Re. humorous, it is.

Re. true: I don't know how true it is; I just read it some place.

But it at least SOUNDS true... :)

Just reading again what you wrote: 'Apply moisturizer, concealer, foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, blush, and lipstick or lip gloss. Optional: bronzer, highlighter, lash curler, or sunscreen'

If you do all these things, it sure must take you a real long time!

Blessings.

If a woman does all of those, then yes, it would take her a long time. I guess I was exaggerating a bit to prove a point, but I'm sure some women do all of those things some of the time.

Anyway, my wife doesn't do ALL this. But she doesn't feel dressed if she goes out without 'putting on her face', coloring with a lot of powder.

Blessings.

I don't think I've ever done ALL of that either. lol Yes, I must confess, I like to at least have concealer and mascara on.

Funny but true. The surge of male grooming products indicates that perhaps there are more males now who are going through similar preparations! The modern metrosexual male does use moisturizers and grooming products a lot more than previously perhaps ( I get accused of perhaps spending longer than traditionally needed but I like to be clean,smell great and be well groomed for my companion!) It is still a lot easier to choose an outfit to go out as a male. Among all my hubs the one on Men's fragrances and grooming has had the highest traffic !! Cute insight!
