    Mine is that body image issues affect men too and it's harder (though healthier) to reach the stereotypical masculine ideal body than it is for a woman to look attractive. (3+ year's training and bulk then cut vs what boils down to 'don't eat cake very day' tbqh.) Yet the media mocks men who claim this. Despite this statement I'm aiming not to demean women's struggles but raises awareness of men's.

    Jezebel on the other hand is interested in silencing men.

    Also testosterone levels are not easy to significantly raise and yet are often deal-breakers for the under-25s. #truestory

    what are yours?

    I wish women would understand the burden of having an appendage that craves physical contact.

    That dating a line of douchebags then moaning 'why can I never find a nice guy' doesn't work when you are saying it to your male best friend, and that mistakes made are not excused by claiming that they were 'drunk' at the time.

    In fact, that last one applies to everyone, but I have seen girls use it more than boys in real life.

    I wish guys knew just how much a girl's body can hurt when due a period or when on a period. The slightest touch to the boob for example can be agony but from my experience, guys think its only your stomach that hurts during that time of your month but no, pretty much everywhere does and while it doesn't justify us being over the top moody with guys, it would be nice for them to realise just how painful it is for some girls and that offering to fill up our hot water bottles would go a long way lol.

    That it's really not cool to take the piss out of bad-looking girls just because you can.

    When I cry or complain I don't really want you to come up with a solution, I just want sympathy, and maybe a G&T.

    Just because you get some attention from drunken idiots in a nightclub because you've worn a stupidly short skirt.. doesn't mean you're god's gift to mankind and can act like in a better-than-you attitude.

    What "no" and "leave me alone" both mean. It doesn't mean text me again and ask to meet up. I am telling you (politely) to piss off and leave me alone.
