Men and women are NOT equal.

Updated on September 18, 2008

at least 12 reasons why


Sure you knew. There's enough proof for it. I'm not going to talk about the books of men coming from Mars and women from Venus. Just about things that came into my mind. You'll probably know from your own experiences at home. Just let us take a look at some differences.


For a start, when a man is talking about a relationship he doesn't just call it a relationship like a woman would do. No he's talking about ‘time spending together in an equal position and having sex on regular bases.

When a relationship comes to an end, a woman would cry her heart out with her friends and start writing poetry or letters starting "all men are idiots". A man calls her after about six months, telling her he doesn't hate her, isn't missing her either, but there could be a change that it just would work again. (Duh, he just wants sex). Or he's playing mister tough guy. Telling his friends how glad he is that it's over, but when everybody is gone and he's on his own washing his own dirty underwear again, he starts crying and feels sorry for himself.


Just take the flu. A woman can't be sick most of the time. Often there are children that have to be taken care of. And the biggest child of all, hubby. She just takes some aspirin, walks around like a zombie, but makes sure there is dinner on the table, kids go to school.

But what if the man gets the flu... O dear, just call 911, call the undertaker, he's sure he's going to die. He won't get out of bed, cries like a baby, says he can't swallow the aspirin you give him, and he doesn't understand that you can't see he's terminal ill when you get him a fresh glass of juice for the fifth time.


For instance the foreplay. Women like that. At least for half an hour. Men on the other hand prefer foreplay of thirty seconds with her and think the ride over to her house is biggest part of the foreplay.


Women can be seen as an adult from the age of seventeen, while men growing up, still are trading football cards. Maybe that's why a high school sweetheart, is only a high school sweetheart. And don't mention how they act during the Super bowl when they are supposed to be adults.


A man's handwriting is hard to decypher. He writes something down, but it takes a while to understand what he wrote down. But there's a plus. They don't decorate any letter, any character; they just write down what's necessary.

A woman on the other hand, writes in a curly way. Dots are replaced by little circles or hearts. It can be a disaster to read these letters and even when she dumps a man, she sees an opportunity to sign a final letter with a smiley below her name.


A man needs at the most just six articles in his bathroom. A toothbrush, toothpaste, a razor, razor crème, some soap and a towel.

The average number of articles a woman needs in her bathroom comes to a hundred and eightyseven, most of those things can't even be identified by a man.

7.Going out:

When a man says he's ready, he's ready. When a woman says she's ready, she will be ready after she has found her earrings and has put on her make-up.

8.The Phone:

Men see their phone as a means of communication. They only use their phone for short messages. A woman can spend two weeks with her friend and as soon as she gets home, she can spend over three hours on the phone with that same friend.

9.Sense of direction:

When a woman can't find the right direction in a new surrounding, she will ask directions at the first gas station she sees. A man considers this as a sign of weakness. He will never ask direction, keeps driving for hours and in the mean time you will hear him say; "I think I found another road to get there", "I know I'm driving in the right direction", "I recognize this building"( yeah baby of course you recognize it, you passed it for the fifth time).


A woman needs many clothes. She wants to dress up when she buys the groceries, to water the plants, to answer the telephone, to read a book, to get the mail. A man just dresses up for weddings and funerals.


A man always comes up with new ideas, a woman adjusts those ideas.

12.Facial hair:

Some men look great with a moustache. Like Tom Selleck or Burt Reynolds.

No woman will ever look great with a moustache

Not enough?(probably not ) Just feel free to throw in your additions....

      first im a guy, just putting that out there and second i find it kind of unfair sometimes how females tend to think of males as nothing less than dogs, yes they have been put down and treated wrong for thousands of years, but oh men are bad cause all they want is sex. cmon, i know so many women that think they are earning a title and friendships for sleeping with every guy they know. My hand writing is better than most of the women i know. the adolescence thing that was up there was also pretty judgmental and incorrect i find that those who grow up faster end up being the ones that have the most regrets, there is a point when people need to act there age but acting like a stuck up prick all the time is not acting their age, its the oposite, a 12 year old who wants to act responsible. all in all i find that a lot of the time people believe in sterotypes and act like they are truly facts, cause you know if that were true then asians can't drive and white people can't jump and i got mad hops, so please next time you say that all men want is sex, think about the last time you heard a rumor from a gossiping friend. its basically the same thing

      Actually Lazur I'm surprised that you didn't do any research, and I would like a refund for wasting 30 secs of my precious life.

      Meaning that women tend to moan a lot more about being sick. Men won't even go to the doctor let alone talk to their spouses (remember reading about Men not talking to their spouses about prostate cancer...).


      I'm at a loss why you don't know the definition of equality.

      From Websters:

      EQUALITY: the quality or state of being equal

      EQUAL: a (1) : of the same measure, quantity, amount, or number as another (2) : identical in mathematical value or logical denotation : equivalent

      b : like in quality, nature, or status

      c : like for each member of a group, class, or society


      : regarding or affecting all objects in the same way : impartial


      : free from extremes: as

      a : tranquil in mind or mood

      b : not showing variation in appearance, structure, or proportion


      a : capable of meeting the requirements of a situation or a task

      b : suitable

      Although C states "like for each member of a group, class, or society ," that is impossible because it conflicts with b, "like in quality, nature, or status." It is impossible to treat two genders (or anything) equally when we are both biologically different.

      Shame on you...

      I'm at a loss to understand how men and women being different is translated by you as not being equal. Shame on you!

      Getting a woman to cheat on her husband or significant other is not like getting a woman to go to the gym — by heaping shitloads of gifts and attention on her like a spoilt child and then ultimately getting no burn for your earn. Getting a woman to cheat is like getting a duck to eat bread crumbs or a rat to eat rubbish. All you have to do is toss it in front of their face.

      It’s not a hard conclusion to draw, so let’s just look at the facts. Getting attention from men is a woman’s lifeblood. That’s why women worship men in the form of menial tasks that they’re not very good at — because men control our attention like the gods of old controlled the sun and the crypt. We giveth and we can taketh away.

      Good attention, bad attention, the worst kind of attention; it doesn’t matter. To a woman, being in a Girls Gone Wild video is just as laudable as serving in a highly respected public office. They stack up eyeballs like empty pie plates at a NOW convention.

      So let’s compare: a woman’s lust for attention versus a man’s desire to consume or waste things — something very manly indeed. Take throwing a sandwich in the street for example. Do you know what’s better than throwing a sandwich in the street? That’s right, throwing two sandwiches in the street. Now what if that sandwich cost twice as much as the first? What if you had to wait in line again to get it? I would probably still do it and I’m betting that most men would. But what if dealing with two sandwiches cost you your dignity, your job, and your soul?

      Women, of course, have none of those things — or at least don’t have 2 out of 3. That’s why when we change ’sandwiches’ to ‘men’ and ‘throwing them in the street’ to ‘getting any kind of attention from them’, we can easily draw the conclusion that women would do anything, and would stop at the destruction of nothing, for more of it.

      Not even guilt will stop women from being the cheating harlots that they are. That’s because women think that cheating requires some kind of expressed willingness or premeditation on their part to actually count. I shit you not, that is exactly what they say. To a woman true cheating requires a planning and malice on par with a bank robbery. If the only evidence of infidelity you can produce is that she got drunk and put herself in a compromising position, you’re up argument creek without a chance in hell.

      Can you believe that? It means if a woman can somehow convince a co-worker to force himself on her, or to “rape” her, that doesn’t count as cheating. It’s just another horrible thing that’s happened to poor defenseless her in this dog eat dog, man-world of rape happy abusers. That’s obviously a bunch of bullshit

      Men write illegibly

      Writing is stupid and an ineffective way to communicate. Men know this so they don’t give a shit about handwriting things with big hoops and loops and squiggles and shit so aliens can read notes about remembering to pick up your birth control pills after 6th period from space.
