Being a guy is not an easy feat in our world. We have our own problems where some that are small, with others that are funny, and others large and painful. We also live with the constant expectation to be strong and to keep our issues to ourselves. This isn't easy as one may think-have you ever held in emotions for a long period of time? Holding in emotions and frustrations is one of the reasons men die younger than women.
Here are some 10 annoying aspects to being a guy
10. Hair! it grows everywhere!
Hair is a good thing, it serves a purpose, but having hair that grows down your back, chest, and neck are not always that pleasant. It varies by every guy but it's still there and when you get older, you start sprouting hair in your nose and ear while you're losing it on top. Talk about pure irony.
9. That random erection!
As a guy, we all get erections. it is the fact of being a guy. But let's face it, getting random erections when you're young and in school can be down right embarrassing because that means everyone can see it. What is the ironic part of this? When you're older, getting that erection can be harder to get without a little Viagra.
8. Our "balls".
Having balls is good as it creates our sperm and testosterone, but they can be a real pain when they are hit in the right place.
7. Bad sex is always blamed on guys.
Sex is determined by guys, let's just face that aspect already. Sure women play a role in it, but first, a guy has to make sure he can get his helper up first. This depends on the level of attraction between him and the woman (or guy if you're gay) and his comfort. When bad sex happens, its usually blamed on the guy.
When you're a guy around kids, rather it's your own kid or if you're babysitting, some people just look at your weird and they wonder if you're a pedophile or if you're just good with kids or the kid's father. Luckily this doesn't happen often, but it does happen.
Condoms condoms condoms! While they're great for preventing STDs and pregnancies, they are a hassle to buy and to even put on.
4. Being called a "creep" by a woman.
As a guy, we naturally look at women, and when we find her attractive we want to go up and say hello. This action can lead to us talking and having a good time at the bar, coffee shop or even some random place. But this action can also lead to a slap in the face and we are just standing there wondering what we did wrong.
3. The ole' double standards of fighting
When you're a guy, you're expected to take pride in your honor. So when your honor is being threatened you're expected to fight back to show you're a man. But society says that is wrong and that violence solves nothing which can be true. So guys have a choice to make when it comes to defending his honor or just walk away. He will either come out of it with a few bruises and a possibly an arrest, OR he walks away and may face a taunt at that scene in the future.
2. Being slapped in the face by a woman
We all have seen a guy be either slapped in the face or have a drink tossed in his face. Seeing this, we automatically think; what did he do? We don't usually assume that she could be crazy. In society, a woman slapping a guy in the face is ok as it shows that she is confident and defending herself. But for guys, it can be a total blur in what we did wrong.
1. Getting hit in the balls
The action only takes just seconds until we are on the floor curled in a ball. It may seem funny to see a guy get hit in his balls, but it's not funny to the guy on the floor. It is excruciating for the guy and it can make any man fall, no matter how much he can lift. Depending on how you were hit, it can even damage one of the boys permanently.
