Title says it all... guys - would you have preferred to be born girls (or the opposite)?
I personally am glad that I am a guy because I can't imagine having periods and all these "problems" that girls have... I find it being a guy an easier job, it doesn't require as much care (don't yell at me, yes some guys do take hours with their hair and stuff, but in general we're more natural and don't need as much self-maintenance).
But sometimes I'm really jealous of girls because they tend to be all cute and stuff, and if they do something it considered cute while if I would do it it would be seen as gay and disturbing... plus, I love singing and I suck at it and girls have generally nicer voices.. and girls have so much more variety in clothes than guys..
and there are more factors, but I won't list them all because then you won't have anything to talk about :)
Most Helpful Girl
I'd rather have been a boy, but I think a good bit of that may also be that my body's broken. I'm actually disabled, plus other issues that are unique to being female with a body that hates me. Even my disability is more common in women than in men.
Even as a child, though, before my body fell apart, I wanted to be a guy. I never really got the girlish stuff (I still need my sister to help me match clothes...and I'm 23...), and I often feel like other girls look at me sideways because I don't do anything with my hair or wear makeup. Plus I wanted to be a Boy Scout and do camping and stuff. I tried Girl Scouts, but we made food and did plays and stuff.
I often wondered exactly where the line was drawn, and I still don't quite know, between just thinking it would be nice and actually having a gender identity issue. I'm pretty sure I'm just thinking it would be nice, since I've got all of these issues that either only affect women, or affect women more often than guys. Also, if I was a guy, I'd have to be at least bi. :P I like the male body too much. :) Plus, girls are psycho...1
