Evan (sampsom) | 578 comments Men can go to the loo quickly, and we can go alone so it takes less time.

I would say women are able to be more caring and so people can gain their trust quicker (this can sometimes kick you in the teeth.

Billy | 195 comments Advantages of being a male: Can't get pregnant, can't get periods, usually larger and stronger, and don't have to worry about makeup.

Advantages of being a girl: Usually trusted more, as said, a guy walking around at night would seem suspicious while a girl would be considered safe.

There is one new disadvantage though!

Nik (anxious-morality) Advantage of being guy: better at sports, have really easy, manageable hair ( >.<), dont give birth ( lucky), can dance some mad ass hip hop ( take it from someone who has seen a man do a flip)

Disadvantages of being a guy: can't follow directions as well as women

Advantages of being a women: have the confidence to dance, most women are smarter ( at least in my grade it's like that), more mature.

Disadvantages: period, more hormones, giving birth, high rape count, unmanageable long hair

Nik (anxious-morality) When I say dance I mean like slow lyrical

The smarter, more mature, and more confidence things aren't necessarily true...seems like your own opinions.

message 8: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) @ Billy-

I'm basing it off my experience. So far I don't know a lot of mature boys.

I have another disadvantage for guys!


message 10: by Nik (new)

Nik (anxious-morality) What is that?

I'm aware of that and I'm never trying it out.

Evan (sampsom) | 578 comments I have a disadvantage for guys. Other guys hit you in the balls. (I will never understand why)

Well if I had a pregnant wife who asked me to do it just to better understand what she was going to go through, I might. But I'd need an extremely good reason like that.

Billy | 195 comments I think it would be very weird if my wife wanted me to go through artificial labor pains to "feel how it is for her".

Well I've never personally heard a guy say "wow labor is easy". I mean if a guy gets shot in a war, is he gonna go home and shoot his wife to prove how strong he is?


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

Disadvantages for girls are DEFINITELY periods and hormones and giving birth =.=

and also probably the peer pressure and stuff... like girls... we pretty much are expected to look a lot better than guys. Other girls judge you if you wear like sweatpants. Unless it's a "trend" or something. *Rolls eyes*

((Something said btw that giving birth is the equivelence of pain as being burned alive but I dont quote believe that haha :P))

Good thinks for women is umm... More on top of things Id say for the most part, more caring and compassionate so again the trust thing.

Guys: Good things are YOU ARE CONSIDERED CUTE WITHOUT MAKEUP!!!
I would say girls are... nicer to guys.

Yeah i dont really know im lazy right now. Maybe ill add on later.


message 19: by Victor (last edited Aug 24, 2013 04:59PM) (new)

Victor (ace-geek) I've heard men describe labor like it's easy. Only a couple, I give you that. But no one describes getting shot as "easy".

And in my opinion a girl with little or no makeup in sweatpants is cuter than a girl with too much makeup and ridiculous clothes.


message 20: by Billy (last edited Aug 24, 2013 09:49PM) (new)

Billy | 195 comments I'm not sure about where you guys are, but most girls at my school wear make up.

I'm not saying thats a good thing though, considering theres always a few who look like vampires with all their make up.

Sasha Ivashkov-Herondale-Jackson (aka Clarisse) (sasha101) | 175 comments i think its true thoug... there are some girls in my "friends circle" who also see each other as 'competition' as you have described it...

sometimes its just annoying like, seriously! We are not competing for Miss Universe title or something! Just lay-off a little.

With what you say about competition I would agree with that. The majority of my friends are women I'd say 7/10. Some of them see each other as competition. The amount of times I have been dragged into little fights over the smallest of things for example an art space, a teachers attention, a singing part. One of the most common themes of my friends falling out is over men. One of my friends is very pretty and she gets attention from other guys in my year. This makes the others jelous.

Advantages for men: Are more respected, seen as stronger, viewed as entitled to power, more likely to be politicians, get higher pay for the same jobs, less judgment for appearance, no periods, no pregnancy, aren't expected to do house work, raise kids

Advantages for women: umm...

Also, girls often see each other as competition."


Thats what im saying. Like seriously I think most girls bother with makeup and the "trendy" clothes cuz of other GIRLS... Not guys.

I mean I WEAR WHAT I WANT >.< Other people may think im weird but whatever. lolz sorry thats probably for a dif thread.

Well I agree with what everyone else says about advantages and disadvantages for guys/girls, but this is one I just saw and I pretty much agree (besides the romper thing because I don't wear them....): http://raids.com/gallery-single.php?i...

Maddison (Brainyboots) | 463 comments Competition happens when you are male or female you just notice it more in the opposite sex


message 28: by Billy (new)

Billy | 195 comments Competition happens with guys but I can tell you its not about clothes or make up or anything about appearance.

I thought we were talking about a high school/normal setting. I mean sure, in sports we will see competition, same with body building. I'm talking about the average Joe though, not some guy that gets paid to inject steroids.
