Men have easier lives than women: Do men have it easier?

  • Men's life is not vulnerable ,neither physically nor emotionally

    Men do have is easier than women...Coz women are burdened with all of those responsibilities in her life...She is that aspect of life where she is judged inside n out both.....Her acceptance or approval is decided by the critical world...Its not only about her physical appearance but also by the way her soul or her mind is...She didnt have it easier at all.. She rocks the world at home,or at any work site..She is a wonder...

  • A little, but this too might change.

    1. Biological advantages (physically stronger; Don't have to give birth or menopause)
    2. Easier to find a spouse even at an older age
    3. Economic advantage (mostly in Asia. Males inherit more)
    4. Less male rape compared to female
    5. Statistically the top professionals are still mostly men

    and then basically the same moral obligations and responsibilities.

  • Men Don't Give Birth

    Men don't give birth, nor do they have to deal with a nine-month pregnancy. I'd rather work my entire life at a factory job than put up with another life form growing in my womb while giving a very painful birth nine months later. Men also have an easier time with not taking responsibility for their actions when they get their girlfriends/wives pregnant before abandoning them due to a lack of wanting children.

  • Yes, they do have easier lives.

    I think men are judged less harshly for their actions and lifestyle while women are judged more harshly. For decades, men had an easier time divorcing than women.  They have always been able to vote, run for office, and own property. Men never have to make decisions about  giving up jobs to care for children.  Double standards are still rampant between men and women. 

  • Yes they do

    I think as a general answer, men do have it easier than women. I think that this question is answered differently depending on the individual, but overall I think that men have it easier. Although gender equality is becoming more equal, in the past men have had all the rights. Women have traditionally been treated like second class citizens and it will take years for the effects to go away.

  • Stop saying no

    Women have it easier then men because in a man's life we have to be perfect for a girl. And I know there are going to be some girls saying no that's not true but you know your laying to yourself. For a woman to give it up it takes a long ass time but for a guy to all you have to do is show him something anything that he is sexually attracted to. Now I'm not saying periods don't suck but there was a study done that was showing that if a guy gets kicked in the balls hard enough it hurts 2x as much a giving birth and 15x worse than having a period. Next thing women Do get paid equally my mom work the same job as her bf and they both got paid the same amount of money for the same amount of time. Aka she works in a office. Now women should never say anything about guys being perverted because I have had girls slap my ass touch my dick etc without my consent. Plus girls loved to be complimented on anything. Now girls have life easier because they can get whatever they want whenever they want.

  • Men Definitely have it easier. Being a woman is hard.

    Challenges Men Face:
    -Can't show emotions
    -Have to work hard to provide for themselves & others

    Challenges Women Face
    - Painful Monthly Periods
    -Deterioration of Physical Strength & high discomfort caused by Pregnancy
    -Child-birth- pains, after-effects, etc.
    -Lion's share of responsibility in raising children
    - Having to choose between work & caring for children
    -Harder to get a decent guy once you start ageing
    -Harder to have kids once you start ageing
    The biological clock is ticking- Men simply don't understand the magnitude of this struggle. The struggle is real.
    -Relentless pressure to look young, beautiful & 'desirable'. More pain EVERY MONTH- waxing, tweezing, treatments- This is not FREE, we do pay for it with money & pain endurance.
    -Feeling powerless, weak & at risk in dangerous situations, around dangerous men- always have to watch our back
    - Have to face the double standards of society- the slut vs stud. Different labels for the same actions by women & Men
    - Oxytocin makes it harder to have casual sex cause it causes emotional attachment whereas men can do it purely for pleasure
    - In some countries Women are not allowed to drive!!!
    -In some countries women are considered 'a burden' and their parents have to pay dowry to husband during marriage.
    How do Men feel about being labelled as a burden?
    - Have to change our last name after marriage
    Do men deal with losing their identity from marriage? Nope.
    - Have to deal with constant objectification- the 10 point scale & other B.S
    - Harder to face divorce
    - More compromise in a relationship because Men have huge egos but we love them so do it anyway
    - Its standard for men to work, have a wife, family, hobbies etc.
    When a women tries to do the same, she's trying to 'have it all.'

  • Men experience less pain in life

    With all else equal, if you have the same person, except of different sex there would be very obvious biological differences and social pressures. As a woman, the person would have to deal with a monthly period -smile, look beautiful and under control even when experiencing tremendous pain. People get written up to go home when they have stomach aches - but periods? No. You just got to be strong and take it like a woman. Every month. You need to worry about pregnancy, birth and post-birth occurences. Prolapse, third degree tears, debilitating nausea. You literally put your life on the line and sacrifice to create life. A man? All he contributes is sperm. An orgasm. I can't even describe the difference. It's like it's even fun for men to produce babies cus they get an orgasm out of it whereas women have to torture themselves just to get it out. To feed it. Have post partum depression. Bleeding breasts. It really is a battlefield for women and a walk in the park for men. Women have to deal more with painful intercourse - in a world that put's male sexual satisfaction above women's comfort. A world where men are taught to dominate and "fuck" instead of make love. The whole mechanics is harder for women. Men, can you imagine having a cylindrical object placed up your anus? Can you imagine how much of a vulnerable position that leads you to be? A position to be in pain and lack control. Women, though, more loving and kinder and with higher empathy and who are the ones who biologically sacrifice more for reproduct- are the ones who suffer. Women are smaller and have to deal with the subconcious worries about being dominated by a man. Imagine a world where you are told that a man's desire to bed you is sometimes greater than his desire to see you as a person with feelings? From a social perspective, look around you. A beautiful woman is a dime a dozen. It's amazing that not only are women the nurturers of life biologically but they are also the "peacocks" of humanity. They are the ones that have to put more effort in their physical appearance - waxing, make up, uncomfortable clothing etc. All that is a pain. Imagine waxing your whole body? I feel like most men wouldn't be able to handle it because they are biologically speaking not used to as much pain and socially catered to in every turn.

  • No they don't

    Men go out everyday to work and earn money for their families, to put clothes on their backs, put food on the table. However women work hard at home with the children and house work. Both men and women work together as a team. It should be this way always

  • Yes, with all else equal

    If we were comparing identical human beings with the exception that one was male and one was female, then yes, I would say the male would have it easier. Doesn't mean that men do not face difficulties, they do, just that all in all I think that being a female adds more complications and disadvantages than being male. It all can be summed up into: female-ness is equated with vulnerability and male-ness with strength. Without a question, if one had a choice, one would choose the position where you are viewed as strong. Who wouldn't? All around, in jobs, in games and in every day life people strive to be in positions of power to one degree or another. So why would this case be any difference? Women are both (1) biologically vulnerable and have the entire burden of reproduction shoved on their shoulders and (2) are socially deemed as less of a threat and at worst seen as commodities that exist only for male satisfaction. Let's go over the biologically vulnerable part. The transition from girlhood to womanhood does not give women in general a large leap in hieght nor muscular strength (with the exception of the uterus maybe). But men get this. They then both look and somewhat are more physically powerful. Girls learn from a young age that they must avoid certain areas, certain men etc. because they are constantly told that if they dress the wrong way or whatever or do this or do that they can be overpowered and raped. Now imagine how stressful that is for a 12 year old girl to be told? The idea that, she can be easily overpowered, in pain and battered and that there is little she can do about that...Because she can't fight back so easily. Whereas, males have more or less freedom of movement, women do not. Women have to worry more about their safety. And to add on, WOMEN are the ones who have the burden when it comes to sex both socially and physically. It is WOMEN who singlehandedly grow a baby that parasitically grasps at her nutrients and destroys her body, it is WOMEN who's orgasm is negligible and is not determinant of whether or not she will have a baby, it is WOMEN who breast feed, it is WOMEN who are prone to pain during sex, it is WOMEN who have to deal with this constant battle of trying to determine if the man in front of her sees her mind as nothing more but a post in the way of his goal (her vag). Can you imagine how exhausting it is to feel that nothing matters about you except your genitalia, that your mind is just some thing that should be glossed over because all that matters is your body? Whereas for men it is about the person you are. I doubt that Ghandi was the only peave-loving person, but he wouldn't have gotten famous if hes woman.Unless he was a pornstar.

  • No way possible.

    Anyone that's been around knows women can get away with anything. Men have to be careful cause if women say anything about anything who is anyone going to believe. The Woman weather true or not. If a woman wants something there going to get it. The world favors woman over a guy any day.

  • I disagree with the claim that men have easier lives than women.

    I disagree with the claim that men have easier lives than
    women. Women actually have much easier
    lives than men. Women are so bored that
    they make their easy lives complicated and then claim that their lives are
    hard. When women want something, they
    can just sleep with a rich man to get it, but when a man wants something, he
    has to work for it.

  • Each Gender Has Challenges

    I do believe men have it easier than women. I believe each sex meets different challenges and life, making a fairly level playing field. I think men and women complete goals and beat life's challenges in different ways, but overall both genders face about the same amount of challenges, meaning they have equally challenging lives.

  • Debate, debate, debate

    I am doing a debate and i am a girl and want the girl side to win for my debate and by the way, it was very useful. Men have to have education and a job in the past. I just want to say, I will always be on the girls side.

  • Here are some ways men have it worse.

    STRONG ARGUMENT: you can't really control erections, and they're often very embarrassing. Think of them as blushing but in a male's privates (and you can't really control blushing as well).

    1. Guys can't show emotions/fear/weakness.
    2. Males are forced into gender role where they have to work and provide for family.
    3. Women could like blue (male color), but men can't like pink or it's often considered gay.
    4. In school gym class, many girls are just nat naturally athletic. If you're a guy, it's expected of you.
    5. Still mostly men in the army/going to war.
    6. Men are more likely to lose custody of kids.
    7. As a guy, if you don't act manly, you're defaultly set to gay.
    8. It's considered much worse for a guy to act feminine than for a woman to act masculine.
    9. Women could easily get away with wearing male clothing (you never see it the other way around).
    10. "Guuuurl power" doesn't make guys ANY more confident about themselves (and neither does feminism).
    11. Men, on average, like around five years less than women. There are tons of homeless shelters for girls and women but almost none for men.
    12. Getting kicked in the balls always sucks.

  • NO they DONT

    Girls are just better than boys thats why. So simple The reason we don't think Men have it harder, is because Men aren't allowed to complain. Also women have the right to get meternity leave if, pregnant,etc.
    Women are For Sex
    Men Just work it

  • There is alot of handouts for women just for being women

    While us as men we have to work harder and stand a lot of abuse that comes form women, also the law favors them, so i wish to the yes side to live alife full of cats and no man gets near you, you don't deserve male company, we have to endure more bad things, we cannot live in a safe space, women are the new children they never grow up, so i call to all men to reject marriage and go tehir own way.

  • Men don't have it equal.

    Men will always have to deal with double standard like men's pay on the date. When women say they are raped everyone believes them, but when men get rape no one believes them. Men will always be the one to ask a girl on a date. He also expected to be strong and not to express emotion.

  • It's just as hard to be a guy

    When you're a guy youre pressured by society to not show emotions. If a guy gets raped nobody believes him, or cares. You might think that a guy can't get raped but in reality a guy can be drugged, restrained, bound, and even raped by other guys. Men are also pressured to make money for the family too. When a guy gets hurt they're usual told to suck it up or be a man. Also when you have a kid who do they all ways prefer the mom. Also wemon aren't drafted into the military men are. When I was in grade school all the As a reward to the girls they got to watch a movie and have the day. On the same day all the guys had to stay in and work as a punishment even the ones that behaved the teachers even said I behaved but I still got punished because of my gender. My next reason is wemon all ways say that it sucks to be pregnant but it also lets you bond with the child in a way the men will never get to experience. Men usually ask a girl out and porpoise and when you do that you have to worry about be rejected. And when you get a divorce the mom almost all ways get custody of the kids. And men are never reward for existing A man cannot simply be. They cannot be qualified on who they are as a person. They are what they do, what they can do, what they earn, what their social status is….Some are able to be human beings, men are human doings. Men need affection to but where never given it and when we are society pressures us to reject or be labeled as weak or pathetic.Toxic masculinity. People expect us to shrug it off and stand up for ourselves and punch any dude that crosses our women and stuff like that and it’s hard to live up to. There might be a reason why more men commit suicide than women.We get mocked for having high sex drives…and also get mocked if we don’t.“There’s a certain expectation that comes with being a man that you are ALWAYS in the mood, sexually speaking, and that you are less of a man if you aren’t. I’ve been put down by both men and women alike for not wanting to sleep with some random stranger. I’ve also known immediately jump to the conclusion that they’re not pretty or sexy enough just because I happened to not be in the mood—and no matter how you try to explain it, they think you’re just bullshitting them. It’s a hideous double standard where people would complain about simple-minded sex-driven meatheads, but claim something is wrong with you if you don’t behave like one. Anyway that`s all.

  • Men have it harder

    The reason we don't think Men have it harder, is because Men aren't allowed to complain, in fear that it will repulse Women.

    Women are sex objects
    Men are success objects

    All Men fear not being tough enough, will lead them to rejection.

    If you read a book, written by Feminist Doctor Warren Farrell, you'd see society is 50/50 Male and Female dominated. But people can't hear Male issues, if Men are too afraid to look weak by saying them.
