I would agree with. Girls have it a lot harder going through puberty than us dudes. They have much more issues to deal with than we do. That's why I like to give girls a lot more leeway than I would give to another dude.

I agree with Andy if its puberty related. If its just a general question, both sexes have their own issues and problems and I don't see one having a lot more burdens than the other.

Harder as in going through puberty??? I kind of think it's a draw myself. Maybe the girls a little more having to do with menstruation and all. That can't be fun.

i think that NO ONE has it harder and no one has it easier

But with non puberty related i think guys have it worse because a lot of boys including me was brought up to never hit a girl even if they hit me first and i was told its illegal

Without a doubt, GIRLS have it harder.
Periods, social obligation for make-up and fancy clothes, sexual pressures to not let boys "do it" to them, or to make sure they don't get pregnant. And physical pressures we have little control over: Breasts too big or too small, too fat, not pretty enough, lots of pressures to be "beautiful and attractive" that guys don't have to put up with.
I'm glad I was born male.

Everything one can see a girls breast . You can't see a guys dick, unless they let you.

Puts more pressure on girls, who worry about the size of their brest

I am very thankful I don't have to deal with periods, so I say girls have it harder during puberty

I agree with those that say girls due to the information Scott shared with us here. We all have a difficult time as adolescents with different problems that we face. As a gay male I have a problem with bigots and those that don't understand "HOW" i can let myself be that way as if I had a choice. But that aside, every one of us has different pressures that we are under, but girls have added pressures with the things that Scott listed.

Let me add, as a guy I can get out of bed, shower, throw on some clothes (not picky), grab a protein bar, and be on the bus within 15 minutes after getting out of bed. Society will not let girls be that relaxed. (Hair, make-up, preparing clothes and wardrobe and shoes, not to mention cramps every few weeks, fluctuations in weight, etc., etc., etc.....)

yea hurdur i want to hit people because i can't solve things civilly and if they hit me first i should be able to hit them back, whatever

Without a doubt, women and girls have it harder, puberty or not. The societal pressures and inequalities women face are extremely unfair and stressful. And not only on the outside world and the superiority complex that a lot of men have, but on the puberty side women have it harder as well.

I agree 100%. Physical development (periods, especially) requires much more of their time & hygienic attention than anything we do.

Socially, girls seem to be really mean to each other in so many ways: hair, clothes, zits, boobs, & especially gossip.

If a guy screws a lot of girls he is a stud. If a girl screws several guys, she is considered a slut. Terribly unfair, but seems to be consistent worldwide with most cultures & religions.

I think the difference may be less than you think given how often threads turn up here about guy bulges and some of the same considerations apply in that, depending on clothing it can reveal more or less detail. On the other hand a girls breasts are closer to eye level and therefore easier for guys to check out.

I think on the general appearance/body image thing there is much more pressure on girls. It is not completely one-sided - look over the magazine rack and there are the likes of "mens health" which always features some well-muscled man that is being set up as something to aspire to but I don't think there are as many of these for men and they aren't photoshopped to the same extent as the magazines that feature women on the cover. We also don't have the problem of clothes models that are far removed from the proportions of the general population.

I'm still relatively young (15), so maybe this will change over the next couple of years, but I don't think I've ever spent even a minute worried about what another guy might think of the clothes I decide to wear or how I look. But I think many girls worry about what other girls will think about their clothes, hair, etc. on a daily basis. I'll probably start caring more what girls think of my clothes, etc., but I'm definitely not fixated on it.

I'd say girls/women have it harder.
Parents, especially fathers' have a certain opinion about their daughters and sex. For most, it is that the two don't mix. "Not on my watch." Pressure from paternal (if present) parent and maybe maternal parent as well to keep virginity, or be "pure." All that "my sweet pure virgin daughter" bullshit. Sexual freedom is way different for most. Then clothes. One of my friends' mom's constantly is judging her clothing. Thinks she looks like a "slut" or a prostitute when she goes out wearing shorter skirts, shorts or other stuff. She changes at school often and it takes a bit of a toll on her. Body image I think is an issue indeed for both genders, but it is harder for females due to the more prevalent media pressure, both clear and subliminal. Obviously periods as well. The concerns of getting pregnant. Getting home safe after dark. Catcalling. My friends get catcalled all the time, and it is disgusting. Being alone on a bus or train. General safety. And actually, I'd add, puberty itself. Hormonal changes add onto physical changes which require a bit more attention. I mean, to some extent, one might say that socially, girls have the upper hand. But that's about it, no? Also, lots of people feel pressured to be give up dreams that they have to raise a family, which from such a young age can be detrimental to their futures. I've been self conscious about my body and still am, I also used to and still do think my dick is small sometimes. But I'd assume it's nothing compared to what girls and young women face. I mean I guess guys also have the "boys don't cry" standard to live up to. But yeah, I wouldn't have it any other way, and have utmost respect for women, young and old and girls because they go through a whole other world of pain that I'll never understand.

Girls' hygiene issues: They have to regularly shave their pits and their legs, too. And I have a question (since I have zero "real life" experience on this one). Okay, I watch some internet porn sometimes. Seems like all girls, even in homemade vids, are shaving off all their pubic hair too. In real life, girls who are sexually active, is this pretty much an expectation of girls now, too?

As a matter of fact I do. I happen to have a brother. All he has to do is roll out of bed in the morning, brush his teeth, comb his hair, throw on a tee, put on some jeans and he's out the door.

Not to mention that his personal hygiene routine is far less complicated than mine.

If you're talking about puberty and just growing up, I would say girls have it harder for at least two reasons. First, girls have to deal with periods and menstruation. Second, when it comes to dating, I think girls tend to experience more rules and scrutiny than boys.

Well, imo, a true, unbiased comparison of who has it harder from a physical standpoint based on firsthand experience isn't easily possible (there aren't too many people who have experienced life in both male and female bodies). Because of this, I just don't see the point of discussing it from this standpoint.

However, from a societal perspective (in the western world, mainly speaking about the US here), males DEFINITELY have it easier. I don't think anyone can dispute that most of the western world is a patriarchal society where, for example, women still only earn about 2/3 of what men do for doing the same job with the same qualifications.

Also, child birth is effing painful.

Since this is not about puberty...

Puberty For All :arrow2: RoTW

As far as puberty is concerned, women have it worse, definitely. You can't deny biology. From a societal perspective, women still have it slightly harder. They are most likely to be raped than men, for instance. I'd say, however, that things are starting to invert and in some decades, I'd say both will have it equally hard or at least women less harder than men. I'm talking about the western world, obviously. In the Middle East, for instance, women are still treated like cattle, and that's not going to change.

Pysicaly girls has it worse there a not much to argue that. Social is where my opinion becomes a unpopular one. Woman in the year 2017 not 1800 or 1920 have it well. Intodays age woman have more power and opportunities. Woman have more scholarships and bigger company's are looking for woman to seem more modern. Men on the other hand don't have any male only shcholirships and company's are trying avoid men just because they don't won't to seem "patriarchal". America and most western cultures are not rape cultures and never will be. The middle East is a different story and to compare western cultures to the middle and it a horrible to say there close.

Most, if not all of those are because of toxic masculinity resulting from our patriarchal society, which does impact women a lot more than men.

Yeah but you're forgetting the fact that -

1 in 3 women [and 1 in 4 men] have been victims of [some form of] physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime.

1 in 4 women [and 1 in 7 men] have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime

1 in 7 women [and 1 in 18 men] have been stalked by an intimate partner during their lifetime

Women between the ages of 18-24 are most commonly abused by an intimate partner.

1 in 5 women [and 1 in 71 men] in the United States has been raped in their lifetime

Women abused by their intimate partners are more vulnerable to contracting HIV or other STI’s due to forced intercourse or prolonged exposure to stress.

82% of all juvenile victims are female. 90% of adult rape victims are female

Females ages 16-19 are 4 times more likely than the general population to be victims of rape, attempted rape, or sexual assault.

Women ages 18-24 who are college students are 3 times more likely than women in general to experience sexual violence. Females of the same age who are not enrolled in college are 4 times more likely

So no fucking shit people are going to be more scared of men than they are women. Even growing up, society places gender roles and stereotypes on men and women. Men as aggressive and dominant. Women as kind and submissive. Because of these stereotypes not only do we learn to fear men, but it also puts pressure on the man to be that way. I'm not saying that men aren't abused or raped, but a large majority of the time they are not the victims. 9/10 people that are raped are FEMALE. Now tell me again why men have it so difficult? Tell me again why more people are afraid of men than women?

Also, can I get sources for those statistics Scarydrago

There are people that have civilized conversations easily while others can't seem to control themselves. This is by no means limited as a gender or sex issue. If I had to guess I would say that its more difficult for guys based entirely by what i have witnessed.

Thank, again tho, u keep bringing up the point that men should be able to hit women or defend women if they're being abused and i agree. However, accept the fact that 9/10 times this isn't the case and the man isn't the victim. So please stop w that nonsense.

Any other arguments you have that I need to debunk tho?

A good number of the sources in that list are extremely biased and misogynistic. They would never be taken seriously in any academic or professional environment.
No one is saying that men don't have problems, they do (especially when it comes to mental health stigma, but thats a separate issue), its just that men (especially white men, who are usually the majority of men's rights movements) have an incredible amount of privilege and agency.

Also with some of those stats, looking at them purely from a "men vs women" perspective is incredibly naive. Some of them, like especially the incarceration rate and the prevalence of AIDS, have some pretty obvious other factors that play a massive role. But again, thats another topic

In Serbian society... both. I mean girls deal with patriarchal problems in some cases, but boys do have their share of problems. Since I am mostly done with puberty now, I guess it's now my job to look after my little brother and sister who have just entered puberty. It's a complicated mess.

In modern society in my country, I'd say that men and women are mostly equal. Everyone is on the same legal footing, everyone is free to make whatever they want of their lives. That said, in my humble opinion, women have minor social disadvantages. Speaking as a woman though, I think the disadvantages women face are often inflated, as if women are totally at the mercy of men when that isn't the truth. While the aforementioned disadvantages are inconvenient or offensive, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on my life because I'm stronger than that. Women can and should take the reins and rise above it, that's how you earn respect.

first of all you look like a dipshit using a dot wordpress address as a source.
secondly – and i realize this has little to do with you as you did not write the a̶r̶t̶i̶c̶l̶e̶ blog post – men have a lower life expectancy because they're more prone to heart disease. it's not society, it's biology. or maybe it's the bacon they keep putting on everything.
