    ....reading the posts on this forum. Does it suck that much being a 18-25 year old guy? Is it fair to say that most women in their youth are happier and less lonely than men in their youth and have access to more support?

    Is it still guys who have the better lives or has the decline of masculinity in the media, in industry, in retail, in the classroom, etc contributed to making mens lives more miserable?

    Not at all. The grass is always greener on the other side.

    I wouldn't want to be a guy, simply because I'm a woman.

    But do not fear, do not repent of your penis: You do not bleed for a week every month. Be grateful for your penis.

    What?

    These things make being a guy better than being a girl:
    - Pissing while standing (underated)
    - No periods
    - No pregnancy

    I wouldn't want to be a guy, but I think both genders have their own downsides. For instance, we get lady pains

    I'd say definitely not. But do you mean any specific aspects?

    I struggle to trust anything that bleeds for a week and doesn't die :sly:

    But srsly, there's pros and cons for each :holmes: I enjoy the ability to grow a manly beard, not so much the extortionate car insurance :erm:

    Yup, definitely.

    The thing about being a man, however, is that you should - in principle - not need these things. Women need emotional support because they are weak.

    They have happier youth, but at the end of the day, they are women and we all know this is a man's world.

    That's a good thing though. You can can get dressed and run out of the house when you've just woken up when you're in a rush. No putting on makeup, etc.

    Maybe it's more noticeable now because youth is longer than it was back in our parents day? We're dependants and considered young people for longer.

    You shouldn't trust us. We're all not-so-secretly planning to take over the whole world. :cool:

    I agree. I enjoy the huge variety of clothes and makeup. I don't enjoy rag week.

    I agree, but Maggie Thatcher was pretty exceptional on more than one account. To get to where she was as a woman, you had to be exceptional.

    Not really. I don't want to be a guy and never will!
    I think there are good and bad sides to both, for example don't envy childbirth, the 'time of the month' or the harassment women get on nights out. I've never really thought whether things would be much different if i were female, as i'm fine how I am.
