You don't have to be a man to understand a man's problems. Odds are, his wife is ready to tell you exactly what's wrong with him. Hey-oh!

...Speaking truthfully, being a man does come with its own share of societal problems, but the public acceptance of being allowed to talk about them may not exist. In that regard, perhaps a woman speaking up for a man is the way to go?


Reddit user, u/-ThorMan-, wanted to know what's the worst of the worst when they asked:

Women of reddit, what do you think would be the worst part of being a man?

Taking The First Leap

Having to build up the courage to ask a girl out on a date. I got asked out by some guys I wasn't attracted to at first glance, but I still went because I know how much it takes to approach a stranger.

Stepping Up

I can increase my attractiveness if I need a confidence boost by applying some light makeup and wearing flattering clothes.

It doesn't seem that easy for dudes

There's Only That One Sweet Spot

Height. If you're a short woman you get called 'cute' and if you're tall a 'model'. So win win. I've seen so many cases where there would be a smart/handsome looking guy that would be below 5'11 (180cm) get rejected for an average looking stupid guy that's 6ft+.

"Know what I call guys shorter than 5'11"? Friends." is a super common tinder bio.

Is It Okay To Assume Either? Or Should You Just Assume Neither?

Figuring out if a women is actually into you or is just being friendly.

It's easy. Assume no woman likes you, because that's usually the case.

Where Is It Okay To Cry?

Not being able to show emotion in the same way

My dad beat my a-- whenever I cried, so I think it subconsciously deterred me from crying. Then two decades later, I cried during an episode of Futurama and figured I was cured.

Are You Even Allowed To Have Problems?

The pressure of being perfect. You have to look good, smell good, be good, be great at your job, be the rock, be the glue that holds sh-t together. & you aren't even able to have a break down and cry when it gets too much.

EDIT - I truly understand that women too can feel this way. However this post is asking about MEN. Men do feel this way and they also have every right too.

I would also struggle as a man that it seems when a man has a issue people jump to 'this doesn't just apply to men, this applies to women too' .. that must be truly frustrating to have your problems downplayed and made out to not really be a problem because everyone can feel that way.

Not receiving emotional support.

Edit: I'm sorry you guys are all dealing with this. It sucks. For the ladies also dealing with this, I'm sorry it sucks.

Everyone, don't be afraid to reach out for support. If someone slaps you down for it they are not the right person to be around.

If all else fails see a therapist. You go to doctors to take care of your body. Go take care of your mind too. You don't have to be depressed or have a mental health issue. Sometimes it's nice to just speak to someone without judgement and no one has to know about the visits but you.

Much love.

No Defense Given

Men cannot defend themselves from women without it exploding in their faces.

it's ridiculous, you have a right to defend yourself, gender nor age should be a factor on your wellbeing.
