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.

We Have Next To NO Control Over It

The way pee sprays in unpredictable directions sometimes

Flex, Bro

Tough guys always looking for a fight.

There's a point in middle school/high school where other guys want to beat you up just for existing

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?

EdisonClayton

Just. Constant. Shifting.

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

We're Not All Bruce Willis

Giphy

Baldness.

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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
