I may have wished God made me a male, but, I will have to deal with and accept that I am not.
Do you really wish you had been created as a man?
Being a man sucks
You have to work, no one is willing to help you, and you pretty much hold the weight of the whole world on your shoulders and are expected to make something out of yourself. Women on the other hand, as politically incorrect as this may be, don't have as much pressure or expectations on them. They can just marry a rich or successful man and that's it, or accept handouts from people, and no one looks down on them. But men have to make it on their own.
I could say the same thing about being a female.
You are expected to marry and start a family (and don't forget that ever ticking biological clock). For those who do, the majority still have to hold down a job, and as a default be the main caregiver of the children, make dinner, wash the dishes, etc. Granted men do help out, but, the majority of women's work in a couple, still falls to the woman, even if she works outside the home, too.
She cannot join the clergy. She cannot Commune on various times of the month. She cannot re-enter the church for 40 days after giving birth...oh yes, there's that whole giving birth thing for those who do. Ouch.
For the women who do not marry, well...they need to hold down a job, just like any man would. Pay the same bills, deal with all the same worries. Some have dependents to take care of, as well.
Did I mention that even today, women still make less money doing the same job, that men do?
What women have to deal with that men do not, is all the crap they get from men. All the innuendos at work and outside work. All the looks, the whistles, the inappropriate touches, etc.
You get taken at the auto repair shops, you get taken by the furnace repair man, the plumber, etc. Just because they don't see a man standing behind you, they will stiff you for all they can.
I had one auto repair shop give me the run around, until I actually asked my manager at work to come with me during lunch. The moment they saw him, it all changed. They took him "in back" to show him the car, etc.
AND....a man who is merely being polite will not automatically be assumed to be flirting and "interested"....while if a female is polite, all of a sudden she's "giving off signals".
THAT is a huge issue with me. I am polite....and I cannot tell you how many times it's gotten me in hot water. Even the guy who delivered the dumpster which I ordered when my basement flooded last month, decided that since I was nice and polite and worried that he not injure himself, I must be interested in him. What? ...and the guy automatically knows where I live, because he delivered the dumpster!! Sheesh!
I was just worried he not get maimed, I wasn't flirting.
So, yes....some days it sucks to be a female, too.
BUT....I know God made me this way for a reason....and 99/100 days it's great and I wouldn't exchange it for anything! I have so many things that I can and do do, that I wouldn't have done, if I were a man.
However, I could have used the extra muscles when it was time to drag and dump all the wet stuff out of my basement....and I would love to have a man be there when I have repair men over.
There ought to be a "rent a man" service....just for such occasions.
