It's a rarely talked about problem: Being a man is difficult. Sure, men don't give birth or go through puberty in the same way women do, but there are certain traits forced upon men that seem just a tad challenging, as evidenced by the men below.


Reddit user, u/justjuiced22, wanted to hear the hidden truths when they asked:

Male users of reddit, what is the most annoying thing about being a guy?

They Like To Be Told They're Pretty, Too

Getting very few/no compliments from my SO.

I want to be told nice things about myself too.

Aneides

Every. Day.

Giphy

I hate shaving my face so often.

I'd say get one of those home laser things, but apparently they're for every type of hair except male facial hair.

...also apparently not for dark skin, ya racist lasers

Vandechoz

Don't Be Afraid. What Could Happen?...Except Hearing No...

Always being expected to make the first move towards the woman.

Welp, Time To Go Die

Being the person to go check out the noise that just happened in a creepy place, to promptly be brutally murdered by some evil demon spirit

I'm Just Talking To Them!

People instantly assuming you're a pedophile when you try to talk to younger girls. Like can't I just be nice. Girls aren't judged when they talk to younger guys.

I remember coming to a crosswalk and waiting for the lights to change, the little 3, maybe 4 year old girl waved at me (she was right next to me, holding hands with her mother). I said "awe hello", and proceeded to look straight forward after that, waiting for the lights of course. The looks I got for just that were surprising. Like what do you want me to do, just ignore this little girl that waved?

Just. Constant. Shifting.

Always having to move my lil guy so it isn't uncomfortable

Some can make it work for them, but most can't.

Pitching A Tent Anywhere

Used to be getting random boners at inappropriate times.

Now, it's not being able to get a boner at appropriate times.

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
