Things guys hate about being guys


I'm a girl who got some help from really kind guys. This is what they said:

Things guys hate about being guys

10. Jail

It's easier for a guy to end up behind bars. Girls go to jail too, but let's be honest, jails are full of testosterone. (I know girls have testosterone too)

9. Yes sir!

Guys gotta be soldiers, it's unfair that they must die for their contries and most girls don't go through this. This is a guy's job. Men fight more wars than women.

Things guys hate about being guys

8. Don't cry, u faggot!

- Hey hey, what are you doing? Are you crying? Are you gay?

"Boys don't cry, Real men don't cry" What kind of bullshit is that? Yes, they have dicks, but it doesn't mean that they're not humans. Guys should show emotions as much as they want and be real men.
More emotional suppport for them, please!

- Babe, can you help me with this? I can't open this jar. I'm a girl and I'm not strong enough.
- Honey, my dick doesn't give me superman's powers.
- Oh, okay. Well, can you repair this?
- You think I'm a plumber?
- Gosh!! Is there something you are good at?

I have to be honest, I always ask for help when it comes to streght stuff and it's unfair because not all guys know how to handle tools, come on, it's not just their job.

Things guys hate about being guys

6. Stereotypes

Guys are harassers, rapists, drug addicts, brute, cheaters, violent, the drunk ones


Things guys hate about being guys

5. You're the guy, you have to pay

Justice is to pay what you had. But hey, girls have pussy, they can't pay, let's take our wallets out and pay for the whole thing.
Girls, we can make money too, let's be fair and pay for our things, let's be independent.
Guys are the ones who have the responsability to bring food to the table. I'm not saying girls don't do this, plenty of single mothers go through this.

Things guys hate about being guys

4. Boners

You don't know when girls are horny, with guys is super evident. It happens everywhere, at school, at work, while swimming, when you wake up. It's awkward.

But hey... Boners disappear when you get old! That sucks! Gotta buy viagra and sometimes it is not enough. Poor guys, it's all about the dick.

3. Umm, wanna go out?

Girls ask guys out too, but it's mosly a guys job to do the approaching, they propose and we get to decide. And when a girl goes for it, most of the time they don't get rejected.

Some guys are super shy and the fact that they have to face their fears and ask their crush out sucks.

Things guys hate about being guys

2. Girls have advantage

The world is falling down, huge hurricane, amazing earthquake, the titanic is drowning, let's save the pussy!!!

Things guys hate about being guys

1. Trying to understand her

Guys biggest labor is to guess. Guys hate to guess. They can't know what we want because we love drama. Oh guys, I'm so sorry we are so complicated. I really do my best and try to be as simple as possible.

Guys have to figure it out what we are thinking, what we want... We don't even know what we want. Sorry about that.

Honorable Mentions:

A. Virginity

Dude, you lost your virginity, you are my goddamn hero!
Dude, are you virgin? What a loser, you're a faggot.

B. You want what??? I'm the mother and I had the baby!

Guys are dads! Guys can be good mothers too! Some of them deserve to get the child over the mother.

C. Dick size

Guys never know if girls care about size or not. They worry about it!

Things guys hate about being guys

D. I can hit u 'cause I'm a girl but you can't hit me 'cause you're a guy

A girl hit a guy, nah, not a big deal.
A guy hit a girl. HE'S SO GOING TO HELL!!!

    Wait, is this written by a guy with an alias of a girl?

    Or is it simply written by an awesome and understanding girl?

    Thank you for acknowledging it rather than calling it simply complaining. THAT is the important part. Simply understanding our perspective.

    For instance, I don't mind buying a girl dinner or gifts when I make extra cash. But if I don't, that doesn't make me a jerk, that makes me reasonable.

    The "men don't cry" thing seems to have died down a LOT though, which is good.

    Also, this understanding is very important to understanding cultural issues regarding women as well.

    For instance, in the Middle East and Africa, where Polygyny is rampant, and most women select only the top few guys, most men are left to waste. This drives men to pursue much more violent means. In these areas, such as Iraq and the Congo, violence and rape are at absolutely pathological levels. There is also a constant need to control women's sexuality to keep tract of paternal parentage, etc. Psychology Today did a good article on the subject. Specifically number 4 in this list:

    It could be said that this is the primary nature of male violence. And you find that nations with more sexually-liberated women with higher libidos have much less male violence, such as the Nordic countries.

    A lot of these things make sense but, i dont agree with all of them
    I think men should fight wars, and woman shouldn't
    I think all men should learn how to use basic tools and do basic things
    Also its a mans job to be strong, if he is capable of becoming so

    I also dont mind paying for dates, i think its important a man do this
    1. Because it shows that you can provide for her
    2. If you ask her out on a date, you should be the one paying

    I love number eight, that is one of the biggest lies women tell. No woman wants a man that cries.

    Any guy out there that has shown weakness and cried around a woman, and still feel respected by that woman? Any of you, still in a romantic relationship with her?

    The same woman that is all concerned at your show of weakness or tears. Is the same woman, laughing at you when she tells her friends what a sissy you are.

    women go to war and have to depending on where you are.

    and more women die in childbirth than men die in war.

    guys dont have to open jars

    pay for dates

    or ask anyone out

    they do these things bc it perpetuates a boys club and it comes with male benefits. for example not being attached to any of the degrading views you and many people seem to carry about women you've never met before. it makes getting work a lot easier when people dont assumer you're weak emotional fragile irresponsible volatile looking for an easy ride and can't open jars.

    and women are insulted ALL the time not for being weak but for the stereotype that they are weak, just by being.

    women dont like drama. you, like drama. there's a difference.

    again if women were respected for more than wiping noses and picking kids up from school, there wouldn't be an excuse to give kids to moms. if guys are the 'workers' who is supposed to take care of the kid if the kid lives with dad. if you want kids stop defending labor discrimination against women.

    you and your friends are either genuinely clueless -which you can change so its not a credible excuse. or sexist. people who complain do it as subterfuge. you can appear as if you're against something all the while supporting that system you supposedly hate,. bc not only is complaining ineffectual,. overtime you complain you reinforce stereotypes.

    none of this inevitable its just manufactured segregation. is if guys dont like sexism they shouldn't condone it. none of this stuff has anything to do with being male. it has to do with sexism. so reject it.

      men are only criticized for crying bc crying is associated with women and women are promoted culturally as the 'shameful' sex. the worst insult a man can call a man is a woman. lets not pretend were talking about something else,. men face retaliation from peers for being 'human', bc women are dehumanized.

    • NovaLS

      With your comments in regard to men doing things because it is part of the boys club, why do women push this on men? I love working on cars and my roommates girlfriend was harassing him for not knowing mechanics and saying he wasn't manly because he could fix things. It goes both ways, women pin it on men. Many women are astounded (in the negative way) for splitting dates, so basically if a guy wants to get a date he Must pay. The point with war is mostly the draft. You may cry wartime equality when you have to sign up, or when it is abolished. Women are more dramatic in society, perhaps they took the role on from TV or what they perceived as social norms but honestly they do act it out nicely if such is the case. Here in college I have had the same roommates for a year and get along great with them! Never had a problem. It is very similar experience. Yet girls apartments constantly talk about their "terrible roommates" and everything else. Even the TV shows they watch are dramatic.

    • NovaLS

      This again might be the way that we all were raised. One more thought, there are actual differences between males and females (obviously...) Look at the Olympics, who holds the highest weight numbers, the fastest times etc? All men. Locally a women was angered because she failed a firefighting test that required lifting a heavy human shaped object down a ladder and was unable to do so. She claimed they were being sexist and filed a lawsuit. Fact of the matter is for a firefighter I want them to be able to move my 250 lb father out of a building. It has nothing to do with sex, but ability. If the woman could lift the weight then more power to em, but if they can't they can't. There are certainly woman much more capable than me, but there are also reasons certain jobs and areas have more men and than women and other areas more women than men.

    Stereotypes are the only ones that get me in all honesty, I just hate being compared to other guys and in particular I hate that being nice is apparently suspicious since other guys of course act nice to get somewhere. At the same time it's just an issue that I kill off since, if i'm truly nice it'll show regardless of how long I know a person. I don't really care about dick size as I feel thats an inferiority complex amongst guys more than anything.

    Not being socially acceptable to hit a girl also doesn't bother me, if anything I agree with it and would probably hit a guy who dares hit a girl not that I don't believe women can't take care of themselves but it's just a personal button pusher for me to see a guy do it.

    Being expected to pay? I haven't experienced that at all, all girls i've dated were more than willing to split the cost of anything but i'm more than willing to cover the whole cost because I guess i'm old fashion and frankly i'm happy to be on a date i'm not concerned about money. Same with crying, any time it's happened women are understanding about it and they can see why it happens, sure guys might have a go but emotionally women definitely got it.

    Jail? I'm not concerned about, not even going to be close to going there... in fact I am actually ex military which leads me to that bit, I don't feel a burden for what I did as it was still my own choice the only thing that bothered me about it was that the females were given and easier time. I get they need their own space and may not have the same natural genetic muscle, but when they're given easier 'tests' for something considered health and safety? I don't understand it, if it's health and safety why is the test easier for anyone, and why do guys miss out on a job for failing if they pass the womens test standard? It's also plain dangerous to hand out passes for it when in a crisis it won't go down that way.

    Boners, crying and strength don't bother me they're just something well within my own control.

    1) I agree with 10. It's unfair that many men are incarcerated for longer periods of time than women and that black men in America are incarcerated for longer periods than white men. This needs to be changed.

    2) Don't really agree about the military part. In some parts of the world, women aren't allowed to be in the military. So that's not their fault.

    I do think that the American draft should be abolished because it's not fair that men have to sign up for it. But the whole "men only go to war" situations was started by men. I'm now glad that both genders can serve if they wish to in America.

    3) I do agree about how men are demeaned by their own peers sometimes and by plenty of women. That needs to stop. Every man should be himself, not what other people think he should be.

    4) The reason why a majority of guys pay for the date is because they approached the girl or they want to. They don't HAVE to pay--I don't know why some feel that this is obligatory based off of gender. You pay if you asked the person out.

    I don't get how people split bills on the first date--that makes no sense to me.

    5) I'm going to hurry and finish this up.

    -I feel like men should hit women when they are in fear for their life, just not in a retaliatory attack. He should definitely charge the woman for assault and not be demeaned by it.

    -Men can get raped by women too. And I think these abused and molested men need to step forward so that they can get help on the federal level.

    -Dick size is dependent on the woman. Many women want to "feel" something, but I've been told by quite a few women that small penises have given them the strongest orgasms ever.

    -Of course some men deserve the child over the mother. But this is a case by case basis as always including for the mother.

    -Per the virginity, I think that's all in the guy's head. I have heard other guys clap each other on the back for sleeping with a girl and demeaning him for not doing so, but I've heard more women do the opposite. There's nothing wrong with being a virgin but a lot of them don't want to listen so...

    -I don't think women are that difficult to understand. If you know how to make basic inferences, then you're already half-way there. If you know how to empathize with other people, you know the majority of women I believe. But it does seem that I speak a different language to a lot of guys.

    -Finally, I'm sure there are "female" advantages but I can't think of one. If anyone knows, feel free to say.

    I would say that this definitely applies to different individuals.

    With #10, just because you're a guy... Doesn't mean this applies to you, this problem only applies to criminals and those who may have been involved in criminal situations, it just happens to be that the majority of prisoners are men. It's not the fact that you're a male that gets you in jail, it's the fact that you've commited a crime.

    With #9, isn't it legal to turn down an offer or request to join the army? Besides it's good for your development (mental and physical) to take part in military training for example discipline, being respectful, being able to think (tactful), getting strong and fit.

    With #8 I think I've come across many who had cried in front of people (including myself) but I've never come across an incident when people are like "man up, princess". They were sympathetic about it, even the most alpha'est and manliest guy came to me and patted my back and said "you alright bro?" The thing that I'm hacked about with this is that there are still some people who fail to realize that men are human as well, they have emotions 😂

    #7 i wouldn't regard the pressure for me to be 'strong' as something that I should be upset about. It motivates you to get strong and get the job done, I don't see the harm being done?

    With #6, I don't think the problem lies within being a male... The problem lies within the other people around you that are implying and inducing the stereotypes. Because if we had a totally different society but still remained as males, the stereotypes would be gone but it is a problem that many including me is hacked about 😂

    #5 Sûcks Assssss 😂👏

    #4 I wouldn't hate being a guy just cause I have boners... 😒 I mean who would? 😂 it may get irritating but the benefits outweigh the odds

    #3 I think it's the man, who's main job is to hunt for the women (gender roles). Basically, men are more suited for this role than women are (majority). Which explains the sub and dom and why if a guy sleeps with 100 girls, he's High value (womanizer/player) but If a girl sleeps with 100 guys, she's low value (slut)

    #2 yea... I kinda agree that many guys don't like being chivalrious... Sometimes it can suck

    #1 again, this applies to only the guys in some situations (like i mentioned in #10. You may get some guys who understand women and you may get some women who are understandable 😂

    • 10.- I get that having a dick is not equal to going to jail. What I'm trying to say is that guys for society are guiltier than girls.
      9.- In some countries. YOU HAVE TO DO IT.
      8.- In some countries a man crying is a weak person. Like in Mexico (I'm not saying all mexicans are like that). Mexicans are the machos, you should know about that.
      7.- For some guys it's unfair to be the one who does the hard work.
      6.- Well, stereotypes exist and for society guys are mean.
      5.- K
      4.- I'm not saying boners are the most hateful thing, I'm just saying it's awkward. Don't take the "hate" too literally.
      3.- Right, girls are sluts and guys are womanizers. But who the heck is talking about that? I'm talking about guys doing the approaching all the time.
      2.- K
      1.- Exactly, some understand women, most guys don't. And all girls DON'T understand other girls. We never know what we want XD

  • aniemist

    All of these problems are not simple, men have it bad on a lot of things I can agree with all of these, still women have to deal with just as many. The real issue is the standards of society, we love to say we are individual people and what society says doesn't matter, and yes while you can ignore some if it and go for what you believe in, which I and many others do, I am sure that deep down we all care about what society thinks because it can affect our lives. As a society we have rules and laws many evident while many others implied and we have ways to enforce this including ignoring, cajole, tease, coerce, or putting people in jail to name a few

    The gender identity that is associated with biology is one such norm of society that is not easy to change, and has been formed by many centuries of tradition. If you look at LGBT people it not so different either those who fight against what society finds as normal. People will hold to their beliefs very strongly and more often than not will refuse to deviate from this.

    A good example of this was another thread I posted on recently about transgender, I am a man but I can show empathy to those who feel like they don't quite belong or something about them just doesn't feel right to them, Im sure many people who aren't transgender could say they had the feeling of not fitting in at the very least, and try to understand the viewpoint transgender people have. What I got was people who really didn't care what I had to say about it or the reasoning, them trying to understand in their eyes was something they refused to do.

    I think this is the very root of the problem with much of society today, we don't try to understand each other and aren't even willing to try to. If we want a time where people can truly try to respect each other and our differences we need to teach the generations after us to be open minded and stop beating into their heads the prejudices we learned growing up. I believe this to be true of virtually any problem we are having in society. Obviously easier said then done.
