I am not trying to ofend any one or put any one down. I just found this list of twenty reasons why it is better to be a woman.

5. Women live longer than men.

6. Women don't feel uncomfortable with gay waiters or hairdressers.

7. A woman can fully assess a person just by looking at their shoes.

complete list

I found it amusing, a lot of it may or may not be true. But enjoy reading and any coments you wish to make.

Intresting article. I would say by its content that whoever posted it ..went to public school and got to much of a dose of public education. THey never got over it.

Think seriously about what is missing from the list...the really important thing which is missing...totally.

Thanks,
Orangetom

Orangetom,
Thanks for posting your thoughts. It is not really an article, just a list. But I really did find it interesting the way you made the connection to public school. I can relate to that.
However..... as to what is missing, I do think I am rather ignorant there, and I really don't think that will ever change.

I think it is better to be a woman but only if you have the support of a man that really respects and loves you. I happen to be very blessed in my life and feel very fulfilled as a wife and mother with a career because I am able to exercise independence, am trusted, have equal say in decision making and we always spend time together. Equally we spend time apart...having your own space is just as important.


Having been in a relationship that was opposite to this, I can tell you being a woman was just awful duing that time in my life.


I would say the same applies to males...I think it sucks to be either sex if you don't have a soul mate that can reciprocate.

In Peace Always

Resistancia,
Of all the things I have read on this site, I do think that is the most true thing ever said. Thanks for your input Resistancia.

Finally..some good olde common sense..born of exprience. Finally...Well said resistancia. Not a bunch of theoretical drama..or drama queen stuff. Thank you.

RedGolem,
The problem with that list is that it is all physical things. Physical acceptance.

What so few people seem to know anymore is that being a man or a woman is inside first...not outside. It is spiritual..for both partys.

As a Man what I have learned about a Good Woman is that the most valuable commodity I get from her will be Peace....not Piece. Understand.

I know so many women for whom Piece is the only or the most valuable commodity in their bag of tools. What a bunch of empty shells. Their consumption rates are so much higher than their knowlege or ability to provide...much worse they dont seem to know it ..because so few men will tell them...nor will most of the other women. Even if you told many of them they wouldnt believe you.

I also know men for whom this is also their dominant fingerprint. Pitiful
This too is not Peaceful for a woman. Men should know better than this but many do not. Many men are as dumb as the women here. Astonishing..they are consuming each other.

Peace is the most valuable commodity both partys bring to the table. Peace requires real rock solid commitment from both partys. Consumption rates requires only the "appearence of commitment." Peace is also the commodity spoken about or taught the least in most avenues of exploitation today. Merchandizing is what is mostly taught and this is obvious by the statistics on how fast and often couples disolve thier relationships.

One more thing RedGolem...Peace is so much more than just sex..it covers a huge arena. Amazing how many people today dont know this ..hence empty shells.


Peace was missing from that list..RedGolem.

Thanks,
Orangetom

1. Women can talk to attractive members of the opposite sex without having to picture them naked.

So can I.



2. A woman can never be blamed if it's wet on the floor around the toilet bowl.

Ok, well I'll admit that's true.



3. If a woman cheats on her spouse everyone will assume it's because she was being emotionally neglected.

Maybe that's right in opposite world.



4. Women are capable of doing at least two different things to a passable standard at the same time.

I can do 3 or 4 things quite well at the same time.



5. Women live longer than men.

Ok, yeah, there's that.



6. Women don't feel uncomfortable with gay waiters or hairdressers.

Neither do I, though I do enjoy getting a peak at there arses
when they turn around.



7. A woman can fully assess a person just by looking at their shoes.

That's not a good way to assess a person.



8. Women know the truth about whether size matters...

So do I.




9. If a woman forgets to shave, no-one has to know.

Pretty limited to what they can wear though.



10. Women are capable of going longer than five minutes without thinking about either sex or football.

So can I.



11. A woman can congratulate her team-mate without ever touching her rear.

Yeah, but that takes away the fun.



12. Women don't have to worry about catching anything important in their zipper.

Maybe so, but I don't know anyone who's done that.



13. If a woman says something stupid, most men will just think she's cute.

Really? Where?



14. If a woman cries, she's sensitive; if a man cries, he's a wimp.

Nah, if a man cries he's metrosexual.



15. Women know who their children are without having a DNA test.

Tell that to the women who end up with the wrong children
after the hospital makes a mix up.



16. It's cool to be a daddy's girl. It's sad to be a mummy's boy.

It's sad to be either of those.



17. Women can get drunk quicker and cheaper than men.

Yeah, but they get taken advatage of more because of it.



18. Women aren't covered with hair like shag carpeting.

Have you seen some of those foreign chicks!?!



19. Women know exactly what buttons to push to get exactly what they want.

Depends on wqhat buttons we're talking about, I know one to
get a man to do whatever I want.




20. Women don't think reading the manual is a betrayal of all their species stands for.

Reading and unserstanding are two different things, you have
to be smart, regardless of which gender you are to understand
those.




Point is, being a woman is'nt better, for me atleast.

Besides, I like being able to be giving it as well as taking it.

Witty list
lol I enjoyed that very much.

My first thought when I saw the title of the thread was how most of my adolescent life I wished I had been born a boy. This carried on until my mid twenties, which wasn't very long ago. I was a tomboy until I hit my late teens and loved life, I just found I felt more comfortable NOT being a girly girl.
I am not ugly but not stunning or anything and I can't tell U how much male attention made my life hell. I just didn't want it but got it so ughhhhh. I hated being made to feel like the reason people wanted to know me was because I looked good to them. This even effected friendships sadly and not because of any attitude or self esteem issues I had but the insecurities of others, both men and women.

But now, as I get older and more comfortable with myself I wouldn't want to be anything else
As resistancia commented on having a partner to compliment her I now have that too and life couldn't be grander


I still kinda sorta want boys if I have children though but I don't think it makes me a bad person or anything, I just wouldn't want any daughter of mine to go through some of the things I and other women have been subjected to (mostly just for being attractive) among other reasons. it would just break my heart.

Great post Red!

ImJaded,
Wow thanks for the complement!
Its not so much my doing as the person who wrote the list, I just posted part of it hear and the link. But thank you very much for your thoughts on the subject. Going through that time frame you talked about can be dificult for all people so it was great of you to share your feelings on that.
Thanks again

... And to the numerous women who insist on showing off their blatant ignorance and stupidity on Maury Po'Bitch every other day, DNA testing anything with a penis within a 50 mile radius of heir houses and what not *sigh*


good comebacks iori

Maury Po Bitch...now that is funny!! Also very appropriate a name for this program!!
I dispise all of these types of programs. THey are the lowest common denominator in exploitation of peoples emotions and thinking process. I quickly use my remote when I run across one of those programs.

To me these programs are a television version of those cheap pulp magazines at the check out stands of the local pharmacy or Wally World.

Maury Po Bitch...I will remember that ..thanks for the Name.

What some seem to have overlooked is that the list is humorous. It was made as a joke. If one doesn't have to take everything about gender as some sort of actual challenge, then one can laugh.

I would like to see the list moved to jokes and pranks where it belongs so that we can all enjoy a good laugh, and I would like to stop seeing the relationship forum used as a place for bitter folks to argue about gender issues.

YOur joking about this right..??

You do know that humor is one of the most powerful political tools to default or play through without a wimper from the opposition. IN this way humor can be a type of concealed censorship. This is done very often by womens groups to lay out a political position under the guise of humor. It is where the rubber meets the road that the difference tells..not under humor on the political platform.
Political strategists and speech writers know this particularly about the audience to which they are pandering.

Thinking people can think this far. Politicians often cover this truth up with humor.

THanks,
Orangetom

But I wouldn't mind trying for a day, or two.


How 'bout you?

I do know someone who if given the chance of becoming a sterile women, he would take it. Why? His exact words, "I can go around having sex without having a baby." Talk about transexuality from video games and tv programs.
