a lot of guys on here are always going on about how shallow women are. But all they want is money and sex from men but i don't see men as any different when it comes to womens looks and behaviour.
Girls have just as much pressure on being pretty and feminine as men do being successful and masculine.
Most modern men think pain is any situation where their ego gets hurt, gob help us if we ever have a war. Men will never have to deal with worrying about if their periods gonna come or not and if not how they would deal with that situation. No man has been shamed for leeking. No man has to push a baby out there vag and then be expected to take responsibility for it whilst the man has the choice to run.
Women are much stronger than people think. We deal with physical and emotional pain all the time but are expected to just suck it up and keep it to are selfs just like men are expected to keep their emotions to themselves but now a days it's more accepted for men to talk about their feelings but women will still get told what to do with their bodys and made to feel embarrassed about getting their period.
Im not making it a competition who has it harder but I just think men should think before they are constantly moaning about how hard they have it just because a girl rejected them and how evil women are. If you constantly play victim there's probably a reason women don't like you. I understand men have issues to but wish they would realise women have it just as bad. Life is shit and its fucked us all over once or twice and its not gonna get any better if you constantly blame others for it instead of taking responsibility for yourself.

Right here's the difference between men and women. During peacetime, it's all "men have it so easy, being a woman so hard". But then when another country tries to invade our nation's soil, then it's the men who get sent off to fight and die in the ensuing war, while the women sit home and wait for it to blow over. You're right to say "God help us if we ever have another war"-- because it'll be men who pay the heaviest price for that war.
"now a days it's more accepted for men to talk about their feelings" umm it's women who are trying to convince men to talk about our feelings, we just wanna keep that shit bottled up, if we talk about our feelings, its for the woman's benefit so she can feel like she's helping us and feel closer to us. Men have more to lose by sharing our feelings, women grew up with better emotional support systems, men get hung out to dry if we open up to the wrong person at the wrong time.
"Im not making it a competition who has it harder but I just think men should think before they are constantly moaning about how hard they have it just because a girl rejected them and how evil women are." Well, it kinda sounds a lot like you ARE making it a competition, you even said "girls have it a lot worse physically", that sure seems like a competition for "who has it worse". And it seems reductive to say that men's only complaint is about "being rejected". Yes, some men don't take rejection well, and they need to grow up and realise it's just a part of life. But you can't know their whole life story just based on that one observation, you don't know what they've been through that made them that way. Just like I don't rush to judge a girl who seems defensive or rude on a date, because for all I know maybe her uncle molested her as a kid or something. I agree that men shouldn't "play victim", but there are just as many women who do their own version of exactly this.
"Life is shit and its fucked us all over once or twice and its not gonna get any better if you constantly blame others for it instead of taking responsibility for yourself." I agree with this, but if it all comes down to personal responsibility, then why make this into a gendered issue? When you make it about men as a COLLECTIVE, then personal responsibility doesn't make sense within that context, because you've made it an issue of "group misbehaviour". And that just fuels further cycles of this "us versus them" narrative, and within 24 hours we'll get more posts on GaG from guys saying shit like "Why you females so hate men?". Personal responsibility is nothing to do with being a man or a woman, it's about being a functional human being.
Also, it's telling that you started with asking "why men think women can't relate to men's issues", and then you go on to systematically dismiss many of those issues. In doing so, you answered your own question. Men feel misunderstood because we ARE misunderstood, and every time we try to talk about those misunderstandings, the conversation shifts to being about WOMEN'S problems, and how we men aren't fulfilling women's needs, or giving their concerns enough airtime. This post just confirms that, although I'm willing to concede you might have gone in with good intentions, but the contents of the post don't reflect the earnestness of the titular question. If you wanna know why men think women can't relate to our problems, then you should lead with that and not add a bunch of presuppositions onto it about how women have it so bad and us dumb males just need to catch up to the modern world.
