    You have to live with the vulnerability of being the 'weaker' sex, it's harder to be independant/single ie going out alone at night, you get men rubbing it in your face how much weaker women are compared to them, you have all the hassle of pregnancy (all that hard work at the gym lost) and giving birth whilst men can just relax, keep their bodies in shape and be presented with a nice little baby at the end.

    As a tomboy who likes to work out/keep in shape and wants to stay single I can't find any advantages to being female!

    You don't have to have a baby.

    You can look however pretty you want, whether in a summery dress or the tight jean shorts + tank top combo, and still reject the tons of men after you. (But whether you will remain safe doing that, is a different story)

    You can hold down a job too.

    ...maybe you just want to be older. Then you can go out at night without being approached by male youths.

    I hate being a woman also to be honest, it's a hassle.
    I get honked at by cars at least 50% of the time if I go out the house alone and then yelled at out of cars by lude men or men in the street, I can't go out at night on my own for fear of being raped. I get constantly criticized for the way I look. I get sexually assaulted in clubs 70% of the time . I'm mocked for being a woman whenever a serious topic is at hand. There is loads more but I really can't be bothered delving into everything I have to put up with on a day to day basis due to a pair of tits being on my chest.

    Edited for clarification.

    Yeah I feel very sorry for you girls. As a male, it is really great being the stronger and smarter sex, and the most respected type of being on the planet Earth. But look on the bright side, at least your still a human, animals have it 100 times worse.

    I don't wear dresses though and I hate the words summery dress lol I'll go for the tight jeans. I'd just feel even weaker in a dress I like to feel strong/work out and get muscles. True about the job.

    I dont, the last time I got drinks bought for me a man kept saying stuff like 'it's fine when you don't pay for drinks' and sarcastically asking 'how many drinks did you buy'. Truth is I offered to pay for all the 3 rounds but people kept saying it's ok and would t take money I offered.

    women are treated better because women are seen as being more precious,nurturing and delicate so women get lots of privileges from men especially which that they take it for granted. also being a woman means you get a lot of male attention even if your not very attractive which is not true other way round.

    There are both advantages and disadvantages being a female, for the person you are, there are an overwhelming amount of disadvantages whilst for other personality types, they love being women due to all the perks

    Don't forget periods.

    Seriously though, being female doesn't hold you back, it may be harder but you can do it. And to be honest, all the issues you have listed still apply to men too, they feel the pressures of looking good and although they don't have the physical pain of having a child, it's still a pretty big life-changing deal.

    Although there are advantages and disadvantages to both sexes i'm inclined to agree with you, i'd rather just be a boy sometimes.

    Also don't forget having to spend time ridding yourself of all your body and facial hair - does my nut in.

    That's true, shaving on your face must be rough. But then again if they choose to grow a beard it's still cool (or better imo ) and some women have to take care of facial hair without the choice of leaving it alone unless they want to be seen as gross.
