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

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Men have it easy

    I'm gonna sum this up quickly

    I would like to see men:
    Give birth
    Go through pregnancy
    Have monthly hell
    Wear a bra for even just a week
    Deal with being the supposed lesser sex
    Do house work whilst still dealing with sexism and lower pay
    Having people say they own you
    And being told stuff like this is a man's job, step back this is too hard for you, let me get this it's too heavy for you

  • Men have way easier lives.

    Wonen have it way harder than males. The women of the house have to wake up very early wake up the kids make breakfast and go to work. Where as guys just have to go to work.

    Also, females have their period every month, and are the ones that have to carry the baby if a guy gets her pregnant.

    Consequences are very different for male or females. When a guy does something wrong people usually say " he is only a guy" where ad when it is a girl they are judged harshly. Also when a male and female sleep with each other the female has to worry if she is getting pregnant.

  • 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.


  • It's not possible to make a clear statement on this topic.

    True, many people agree that men have it easier than women because they don't have to give birth or bleed each month! But even men have their own difficulties and face their own challenging problems.

    As a girl, I too sometimes feel as though men have easier lives than us, because they don't have to think about how they are going to raise their kids or how they have to feed them, but in all honesty men also have problems.
    And example; (Married people) In many households (especially in Asia) men are the ones who have to make the money, woman have to stay at home and take care of the kids and the household, this is also a hard task but not as hard as having the pressure of making money. Obviously there is a burden on the man's shoulders, he can't let his family sleep hungry or on the streets.

    There are many reasons why this topic is quite debatable but I prefer to stay neutral to the argument.
    Only the person himself can know how hard it is.

  • Men have feminist legal issues that control their entire lives. Society does not care about justice freedom or the rights of men

    Ex. How many people even heard about that kid , 18 years old who was accused of rape by 13 different girls .

    Who are found all be lying

    he could have spent the rest of his life in prison but since he's a male he has no record and I'll get away with it he's lucky to be out

    he was all over the TV in his local area gold girls names will never even be submitted to the public so they can do it to someone else

  • No its not true

  • Woman have much easier lives

    Man have to struggle all time long if they want to suceed while woman can use their seducing powers to reach anywhere. No one promotes man a woman is supported, promoted respected in every occasion. No one understans a man's claims, appeals while a woman tear is enough to win any battle. Being a woman you want anything big you can't get working all life hard? Go find a richi online and get it against your time body

  • At least in the Western World, Men Do Not Have It Easier

    Women in general can find dates, sex, love, etc much easier than men. Why else are there far more single men, virgin men, lonely men, etc. than their female counterparts?

    Women of course will defend their fellow women in their struggles, as well as having the support of some men (but not all), "white knights" if you will. But men do not have this luxury.

    Women are also give much more leniency by society to express their negative feelings such as sadness, depression, anxiety, etc. whereas men are told to suck it up, "Man Up", bury it deep inside. Why else are there are higher rates of suicide among men than women?

  • Eh no, I don't think so.

    This is a very touchy topic, and I would like to bring it to the attention of everybody on this website right now. In first world countries like America, I believe women have it easier. Think about marriage. Afterwards, who is paying the taxes, going to work most of the time, or paying when going to a restaurant? The man is. Let's say that there is a divorce. The man will pretty much never get custody of the child because the woman gave birth to him/her, even if the father is a better parent. Instead he has to pay child support. And for the people out there saying "breast cancer is a big problem", you are right. However, prostate cancer is the male equivalent and it should be brought to attention as well. Breast cancer receives more funding, we do runs for it, we donate money for it. Not prostate cancer, usually.

    The "man of the house" is expected to protect the family, even if he dies doing so.

    Some women might not even be attracted to men because of how much they care, or their looks. The man might have a lot of money, they might have a nice sports car, and the woman might hook up with him just to not have to work and get in on the money. "Birth is painful" Sorry, but nobody said you had to have a child. If you don't want to give birth, just adopt if you still want a child. There are too many people in the world. It has been proven women can take more pain than men.

    Men don't live as long. One of the main reasons is that the y chromosome is like a fatal flaw. It exposes men to things like hemophilia, which is when your blood doesn't clot and therefore you could bleed to death. Men also can suffer from colorblindness. Therefore the man is pretty much always the first to die in a relationship, because he is usually the older member of the couple and is also more vulnerable.

    BPA-Bisphenol-A. A chemical found in the plastic of water bottles. This contains high amounts of estrogen, the female hormone. Too much estrogen is males is harmful, yet it's safe to say nearly everybody in America drank from a water bottle at least once in their life. The stuff is harmful enough that it isn't allowed in baby bottles.

    Men are the only ones drafted in the military, which is pretty much a death sentence. Imagine having to leave your family to fight for your country, dying in the process. And imagine that you have no control over it. Well that's what getting drafted is like.

    Men have to search for someone they want in a relationship, women can dress pretty if they want and the guys will be all over them.

    I have ran out of words, so I cannot continue this essay if you wanna call it an essay. Thanks for reading.
