So many expectations and responsibilities.
So few of it's realizations.
And getting sex is harder unless you know how to play it.

See, the cool thing about questions like this? No matter what yr answer is... you'll always be right!
If you WANT being a man to be "unfortunate"... then, unfortunate it will be.
If you WANT it to be fucking glorious... then, it will be fucking glorious.
I COULD sit here and bitch about how men are "no-nonsense" and "no-fuss" while we're just "bitches".
I COULD sit here and bitch about how the majority of male beauty factors are absolutely under yr control, while the majority of female beauty factors are largely matters of heredity and raw fuckin' luck.
I COULD sit here and bitch about how no one in ANY professional context will EVER gossip about "omg what was that man wearing?" and mb even make career-altering decisions accordingly... whereas we deal with that shit constantly.
I COULD sit here and bitch about how the dating game needs to be a quick-draw street hustle for us, because our fertility runs out *fast*... while you all can take yr sweet time, grow older with "character", and still be regarded as "in yr prime" at age 40-45 if you do life the right way.
I COULD sit here and bitch about how sex and dating can sometimes be terrifying things, because of the innate strength differential between women and men -- and even more terrifying because men are so fucking cavalier about that differential, like it doesn't even exist. Until it does.
I COULD sit here and bitch about how we face conflicting expectations of career and family, while the straight-and-narrow path for men is pretty well manicured.
I COULD sit here and bitch... all fuckin day.
I could absolutely decide that to be a woman is to be miserable, disadvantaged, and put-upon.
And... I'd be right!
I'd be totally miserable, disadvantaged, and put-upon!
That's no way to fucking live, is it. Fuck no it's not.
I'd rather focus on other stuff.
Stuff like how people generally trust me -- especially around children -- and don't have wary instincts to distance themselves from me until they've run 10,000 tests for perv-proofing.
Stuff like the greater freedom I have in society to express emotions, versus how men are expected to be stoic, impassive, and one-face-all-the-time.
Stuff like women's greater life expectancy, greater social interconnectedness, and higher quality-of-life ratings in general.
Stuff like the awesomeness that is women's fashion, and the way throwing on a new outfit is like throwing on a new day and a new personality.

No, we don't have it too bad, but it is a tough environment.
It isn't easy for women either.. look at all the girls online and on this site looking for LTR's or whatever and they can't find them. the men aren't trained, and they are suffering. Men are suffering as well, single men and married men.
It's just a messed up state in society since values have declined and family units have eroded.1
