    Maybe because there are more men in the world or More men feel suicidal etc.? :confused:
    Neither. A lot of men don't feel able to talk about things that are bothering them, particularly to other men. I'm lucky that I have a few best friends who are girls, if anything at all is bothering me I go straight to one of them and I know they'll always cheer me up. There are a lot of guys who I am friends with, but i'd never feel comfortable sharing stuff like that with them. Either they can't relate, they don't know what to say or they don't take it seriously. Plus there's outdated stereotypes e.g ''man up'' or ''men don't have feelings''.

    Perhaps. First thing I would do though is fiddle with my new boobs

    Life can't be described only in terms of a gender binary. Also depends where you live.

    I would say on average there is positives to and negatives to being both genders, probably tipped over in the negatives for women unfortunately.

    I think boobs are great :dontknow:

    But ye, I don't know what its like having them, I imagine having large ones makes certain activities harder. I would probably also be self conscious of them bouncing around when doing stuff.

    That's pretty awful, i never realised. I don't usually talk to people when i'm upset just because thats the way i am but when i am feeling really upset i can turn to my friends - it must be pretty awful to never be able to talk about whats bothering you

    Ye this is bloody annoying. The worse thing is I am as bad. I don't how to react when a guy gets all teary and upset. It's like we emotionally stunted or something.

    There's countless of older men on tv, how often do you see old women unless they are "hot"
    Pretty much all the time. Although, I don't really watch all the reality/beauty TV crap which only shows young women, and is primarily consumed by women, I only watch stuff that's worth watching. So perhaps my perspective differs.

    Yep. More men commit suicide.

    a lot more men in depression etc...
    women tend to have issues in their teens but sort it out by their 20s..

    men on the other hand tend to develop issues in their 20s and many dont ever sort them out

    just recently in my town there was a very very unfortunate case of double suicides

    for this reason I think men have it harder so to speak

    but lets not argue about who has it worse but instead try and figure out a way on how to stop these sort of things happening
