Women get periods.
But a lot of people get bad back pain, which doesnt dissapear after 5 days
. People live in wheelchairs. Some are disabled.
Of course, some women have these things ontop of periods too.
Then again, some contraceptive shots can kill periods for some women. Being a skinny runner and you might get minimal period
Then again, some males have sexual disfunction. That stuff is rough and doesnt just happen 5 days a month
Some guys have to worry about penis size eeeek. Sure, some women might feel pressure about their bodies, breast size etc, but nothing surely can compare to how much is made (by ourselves and females) of sexual performance.
My PMS symptoms last 2 weeks. My actual period lasts 3 days. The PMS symptoms are way worse than the actual period - apart from the obvious mood swings, I get extremely bloated and look pregnant (guess how sexy that makes me feel), my digestion system fucks up, my sex drive disappears, and my boobs are sore as hell to such an extent that it hurts to wear a sports bra. This happens until menopause, during which I'd be so unsexy and dry as a desert that the concept of having a sex life would be completely gone.
Of course, I was just being facetious when I suggested that PMS and periods were the worst thing that could happen to a person. That said, guys tend to think that the period problem lasts only a few days a month. That couldn't be further from the truth.
Your point about penis size/sexual performance is quite spot-on though. Well, maybe not penis size so much as sexual performance. Maybe if guys weren't so prone to bragging...
You're right about powerful women having more difficulty finding a partner, but that's not because these women are looking for a man with a higher status, it's because most men feel very intimidated by powerful women.
I agree with this completely. This could just be because the men from my country are generally idiotic, but whenever a guy finds out my legal background, the response is 9 out of 10 a combination of awe, envy, and intimidation. I would actually be more impressed if the guy didn't care about my job/university degree (case in point: my boyfriend). My single lawyer friends are constantly complaining that guys lose interest the minute they find out they are lawyers - somehow they can't handle the idea of an opinionated woman who probably won't be his doormat. Most of my lawyer friends are with lawyers as well; I'm really thankful, though, that I'm not dating a lawyer. Couldn't think of anything more boring, really.

Moreover, men suffer far less pressure from society to get married, to build a family, etc. - On the other hand, they do suffer more pressure to succeed professionaly.
Agree generally. I would also add that men - or at least, this is true for where I come from - face the pressure of being the financial provider for the family. I know guys who gave up their road-less-taken dreams in favour of a stable job which isn't necessarily in line with their passions/interests, for the sake of a hypothetical future family with his significant other. This is probably less prevalent nowadays because women earn quite a bit too, but I definitely don't feel as if the onus is on ME to stay in my stable job just to save money to buy a house or whatever.
