There are a lot of great things about being a woman but there are a lot of things that suck, too!
1. One of the worst things about being a woman has to be getting your period every month. That is definitely one monthly visitor I would love to show the door! The PMS, the bleeding, the cramps, the mood swings, the expensive products to buy: it’s all one giant hassle. Women spend about a quarter of their childbearing years dealing with this atrocity! Surely there has to be a better way of letting a woman know that she isn’t pregnant!
2. Our society has a double standard when it comes to beauty. More than men, women are expected to be prettier and skinnier. They are expected to wear makeup and do their hair and wear nice clothes and if they aren’t perfect, people start to talk. Men of course are expected to look nice as well, but somehow they get a little more leeway. They are allowed to pack on a few more extra pounds before people start to notice and they of course don’t have to participate in any lengthy beauty rituals.
3. Sure, men have to shave their faces, but these days women are expected to shave, wax or otherwise remove the hair from practically everywhere on their body. Not only does that take a lot of time, but it is often really painful!
