Woman, Would You Like To Become A Man? Or Vice Versa?

I was with my crew the other day. And some how we got into this topic of the burden women have vs. the men. Then i got to the thinking of what would happen if we all had the chance to change our gender for just a month. To see how it would feel for a man to be a woman. And a woman to be a man. Would you accept the offer? and why? or why not?

Oh well. Guess there's nothing we can do about it. I'm off. There are some things I need to attend to.

I've got an idea what it's like. I definitely don't have anything else to compare what it FEELS like, but I have an idea what its like. Seeing (for life in general) is believing.

Oka about the whole pregnancy comment, you have NO idea what it is like.

By together I mean, finding out who one is, where one believes they fit in life, what one wants to do with one's self and one's life, and finding out how to achieve all of that.  

Shuppie, most men have an idea of what it is like, that's the reason why they'd rather not accept.

i wont mind being a male for a day just to have an idea of what it is and how it feels to be one. and i expect the men as well to accept being a female and also have an idea of what it is to be one and how it is to be pregnant.

See that is why i would accept the offer. You know because tend to be more simpler. More laid back. While alot of women are complex and difficult to understand. many don't even fully understand themselves. So fully understanding a guy is easy. Most women learn by the age of 25.

None taken. And I don't want to fully understand. Fully understanding means taking a walk in their shoes, which I'd rather not do. I'm more of the type of observer that watches and doesn't interfere. Life is much simpler that way.

Much better but, no offense you will never[i] fully[/i] understand what a woman goes through. You can try to understand it but, you won't grasp it fully.

Oh. Well. . . I guess I can rephrase that. . . uh. . . I don't see the need to switch places with women. I already understand what they go through and understanding is enough for me to have compassion and do what I can do to make their jobs easier (at least those women/females around me).

How was that?

Compliment in the sense you understand what most women go through on a day to day basis.

Insult in a sense when you were all "i would never want to be in the place of a woman". Sort of makes is sound like it is the worst thing or the worst job.

Okay. I understand what you're saying and I agree. Women (generally speaking) do bear most of the burden. That's why I am thankful that I came out as a male and I would never want to be in the place of a woman.

"your" house is quite the exception. In the house i have seen and including my own, the mother did the most. Yeah we helped out, did what we could, but she still held most of the burden. Both of my parents worked and such. My father cooked only sometimes, while my mom cooked most of the time. My father didn't do much house work, while my mother and us did. He took care of everything else outside the home. But i still know that my mom did the most work. My father is a very caring man and did alot too though so don't get me wrong, but it was my mother would did the most.

"Our" house; I'm referring to My nuclear family and I.

When it comes to cooking, we're all (with the exception of my dad, because he's always in the room doing work) helping my mother out cooking. We're always helping her clean. The only time she really does anything by herself is when she's at school teaching the kindergarteners and reading for her Ph.D. Even with the Ph. D. I even help her with some of her studies by typing her papers for her and helping her with reading/comprehension of some questions. She rarely works alone in this house. If anyone does work alone, its my father. Even then, I'm in the house doing small jobs for him such as mailing letters, typing letters, typing manuscripts, editing videos and music, paying bills etc. etc. The only thing he really does alone is teaching Business and Accounting at a nearby university and grading papers. So, our house here is different from most other households I know of and have seen.

In our house, yeah. I can compare, but that's our house. I'm pretty sure that what you're talking about Onyinye exists in other households, but it isn't like that in our house.

No. I'd never admit to my mother doing most of the work when it comes to the work that my father does. Let me clarify something here. I'm under the assumption that we're discussing what each gender does in general. You seem to be talking about the work they do at home. If that's the case, then I agree that my mother does most of the work (a good 95% at least) in the house. Otherwise, if we compare what my dad does and what my mother does for the family, I'd say that they're about equal.

As for feminism. I know its reality. . . but in reality when it comes to discussing it, the discussion becomes an issue. At least, that's the way I see it.

@michelin89. . . I no sabi wetin you dey talk about. I am not Onyinye. . . haha.

*SHRUG* Alright. I guess that's the way it is. There really is no sense in arguing it. I see my mother do all of that here in the house. Yet, my father has his own fair share of work to do. I'd so that both my parents work equally in this house and bear basically the same amount of burden, but they bear each others burden together (at least, as much as the two genders can bear together that is).

Too bad we don't live with a village. No she doesn't do it alone, but she does MOST of it. Yeah the husband helps here and there, but you and i both know it is the wife that carries most of the burden.

Must she do all that alone? Remember, the saying. . . it takes a whole village to raise a child.

That doesn't mean that we shut our minds off and stop thinking. Thinking and planning isn't easy work.

I'm sure there really wouldn't be much of a difference if women decided to keep their lives simple like men (I'm generalizing here). But whose to say that men don't have it harder than women? Whose to say that women have it harder than men? In my opinion, I think women only believe their lives to be harder simply because they choose to make it difficult.

Who is "our"? Because i have seen a variety of families and somehow it just falls back to the Wife doing most of the work. It is how it is.

Not being you, I see more things i could do if I were you.

I am sure there are so many things you'd like to do as a woman that I have never thought about in my entire life.

Such as shooting a ping pong ball with my womanliness!
