  • Women are judged much harsher than men are.

    There was a social experiment where there was an overweight man and an overweight woman both dressed really nicely. People were more likely to assume the man was in a high up management position than the woman.

    Men are typically more forgiven for being chubbier- they are thought to be teddy bears. Men have a broader spectrum of acceptable physical appearance and are more accepted being heavier than a woman.

    Men don't have to worry about whatever they are wearing being considered slutty.

    Not even based off of media women have certain expectations that men just don't have- makeup, hair, etc. We are judged a lot more closely than a man is.

    I am in no way saying that men have it easy because they do not, and they have their own set of standards that they are subjected to, but in terms of who faces the most pressure, women do.

    Women get it from the media, from other females that they know, females that they don't know, men, job stress, and social norms.

  • I think it's about the same, but it always depends on what sort of situation you're in in life. Some guys have it tougher than some girls, some girls have it tougher than some guys. I think in countries like Canada and the US and most European countries, it's about the same for both sexes, while in countries like Middle Eastern countries women definitely have it way tougher cause of sh*tty laws and crappy government systems and, to be frank, just f***ed up places in general.

  • Bottom line women get to say and do whatever stupid sh*t pops into their heads at any given moment and they get a free pass because they're women. If men acted the way the average woman does, they'd be fired and ostracized from their group of friends.

    • If anything, your full of sh*t. You better know that that is not true. I have had female family members fired for that exact reason while the male did the exact same thing. No punishment. Nada. So you better shut your damn mouth and know that it happens to both genders. To both. Conversation over.

  • I'd say... hmm probably guys overall, but girls have it hard in other ways.

    Still, overall I'd say guys. Women don't have to dress to impress at all. Hell, guys like me LOVE girls who are "Plain" in dress (tomboyish or whatnot). It's appealing they are more down to earth and comfortable than seeking attention.

    • No such thing as a tomboy. Only a girl. But describe why men have it harder. I need some convincing. You know, I'm not a boy, so I wouldn't know.

  • This is like the Nice Guy vs Bad Boy and Superman VS Goku debate. It will never end.

    • Goku all the way. As for Nice Guy vs Bad Boy, the nice guy might get an awesome relationship if he finds the right girl and if he's confident and assertive, while the bad boy will have a lot of chances to be a player probably. Those two debates: solved in a minute. :)

    • The comic junkies would debate you on that to no end.

    • But I don't like comics.

  • I think girls have more to deal with and worry about. But men have higher pressures on them selves to be providers. It would be interesting to see both sides and really decide.

  • Yes it's a commercial, but it makes a lot of good points https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-Lc9Mhi9l0

  • It's about a draw. Both put a lot of emphasis on how they look, dress, act, etc.

  • The only ones who have it hard, are guys.

  • If only one person that asked this question was truly unbiased...

  • We're separate but equal. Women have more pressure to look good (not to say guys don't experience this, but it's much more intense for women), while guys have more pressure to be successful. Each gender faces its own specific challenges.

    But women have to push 7+ pound living things out of their snatches, so I think we win this argument by default.

    • I have more pressure to be successful. I want s good paying job. If woman got paid the same, I still would, but not as hard.

  • Women and men both have extreme societal pressures put on them and both suffer from systemic injustices and stereotypes... just in different ways.

  • Men have it harder, in my opinion.

    Most of the difficulties women face are superficial. The sh*t about appearance is conquerable - but I'm arrogant enough to be all, "f*** you, I'm gonna eat what I want". The other is biology - mother nature kinda screwed us over with menstruation, child birth and such.

    Men on the other hand have intense social pressure. I am an introvert and rather antisocial, so maybe I think men have it harder because the thought of having to do what society tells them is 'manly' would make me rock in a corner with a knife in hand. Approaching women! Argh! I couldn't handle that kind of pressure. Also, the insistence to be 'manly' without knowing what it even means. Being the provided, but accepting the new female role in the workforce/home life. Dealing with women and their emotional instability and inability to say what they actually mean.

    I'm sorry ladies, but men have it harder. I do not envy your gender (but for the ability to pee standing up).

    • I mean. Kind of. Childbirth is hard. It hurts. You can die from it. Snd I know plenty of girls that ask guys out. It's equal. We each have our struggles. We dont know what it's like to be a man, and vice versa.

  • It really depends, but hear me out.

    In some countries, women can't have jobs, show skin, play sports.

    Not to mention, woman have higher expectations than girls. We have to look pretty. Wear makeup, dresses, have a good body shape, etc.

    Guess how many times I've been asked if I was on my period? As if that's an excuse. By the way. NONE of them were girls.

    Also, whenever I go to the store, I buy in the boys section. You know why? Better quality clothes. Not to mention, all of the clothes have sparkles on it. Really?

    My favorite color is green, and I remember when I was younger, u got bullied for that.
    "Girls should stick with pink. Boys can stick with green and blue."

    Women still get paid less then men, and still have to fight for our rights. If everything was equal it would be better. Less bias too. I mean, we wouldn't be here if it weren't for both of us. Right?

  • (hardest to easiest)
