    It would be interesting being female for a day. I'd hope to be a hottie, so I could video myself for use later.

    But no - am male, and would choose to be.

    It's awesome most of the time, but when you get particularly excited around someone you like, it can be pretty obvious/embarrassing, as far as i know girls don't get that problem:p:
    whoa, I always thought you were a girl, sorry!

    Definately female. There's nothing good I can think of if I was a man.

    If you could have chosen which gender to be would you have chose to be a male or female?

    I don't know much about gender but im guessing the main advantages of being male are you would be stronger, better at sport, no periods or giving birth, its more acceptable for you to look scruffy and be anti social.

    I would say the advantages of being female are in general you don't have any pressure to be tough, do manual work, maybe you get more sympathy and have a slightly longer life expectancy lol. I don't know the facts this is just how I see things.

    Anyway, based on your own perceptions which gender would you choose to be?
    Better at sport?! Ooooo, I'm annoyed.

    Im actually surprised by how many girls are moaning about 'social pressures' and saying they would rather be male because of this- jesus, think for yourself.

    Im female and id prefere to stay female given the option. To be honest men in general get a pretty bad rep, no matter how much of a decent guy they are. Women quite frankly are allowed to get away with murder- all they have to do is blame something on time of the month and that seems to be a get of of jail free card for acting like a complete psycho.
    totally agree :five: And mens clothes and hair is so ****in BORING. And all they have to browse/do is beer, footy, boobs, er....women? What a crap life.

    I did, in my head. You were naked too. You also fancy me and gave me a blowjob whilst your boyfriend was asleep, in the same room.

    I would stay being a male. How else would I admire the female body without having my head chopped of by my family?

    I think everyone would give the opposite a try for a few days, but in the long run, I cant imagine being another person. There's obviously curiosity about having the other body parts and all that.

    I read an article by some woman who dressed up as a man and went to a stripping club to look at the girls from a 'male' perspective, and she concluded with the general idea of: Be glad you are a woman. Easy is not the same as better.

    (okay, in return girls have a stronger relationship to their children - if they like it)
    Do they though? That is always thrown in as a counter-balance, but a lot of mothers don't bond with their babies. And for those that do, the kid can never remember being in the womb.

    I disagree with your first sentence and see no evidence to suggest that it is true.
    Less attractive girls have the chance to use "make up" and other cosmetics to enhance their looks. An unattractive guy can't really. :p:

    eek im sure for girls there's a fine line for attractive and not attractive. you have to be physically attractive to the guy for him to fall in your gravity. whereas for girls, i believe you dont have to be a beautiful being to be someone's bf?

    I wouldn't be that bothered. Sure, there are areas in which either gender has advantages over the other, but seeing as a lot of people manage to make the best of things (or manage to wind up equally unhappy if you wish to look at it that way), I don't think it matters in the end.

    As has been said, it would be interesting for a short time to be the other gender, but I'd probably choose to be male again, since at least I know I won't wind up being jealous of the opposite gender and can deal with male issues at least until my age (who knows, bad things might happen, and it's not worth the risk if you're happy with how you are).
