ChicagoMan: Men's Options vs. Women's Options
Article and comments
I heard a statement on TV the other day, not exactly sure who said it since the TV was on in the other room, but the statement had profound meaning.
"Men have it harder than women because men only have one option in life, work, whereas women have two, they can either work or find someone to support them."
SO HOW CAN THEIR LIVES BE MORE DIFFICULT?
This fundamental point is lost on many people.

being a woman is a hell i wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. unless he was a man.
I do not understand how anyone could sincerely believe this. Frankly, I just laughed. Perhaps that was her intention.
In response, ChicagoMan wrote this gem:
I don't uderstand how it could be hell. You are given preferential treatment in school, preferential hiring, workplaces are made to suit your needs. Work schedules, time off, all things are put into more consideration because you don't have a penis. Rape shield laws taking away a man's fundamental right to face his accuser.
The courts are in your favor, huge divorce settlements, child custody even though in many cases you couldn't even support the child without the massive child support payments (which are a testament to why the man should get custody).
Heck even the dating world is in your favor, access to sex is in your favor. If you get pregnant you have many options, you don't even have to raise the child, you could just leave it at a hospital or fire station.
Federal funding for women's health concerns like breast cancer far outnumber federal funding for something like prostate cancer which incidentally KILLS MORE MEN A YEAR THAN BREAST CANCER KILLS WOMEN. Don't believe me, i have an earlier post direct from the American Cancer Society.
Way more options as far as public help.
More scholarships are available to women than to men.
More lenient prison sentences for felonies, heck if you even go to jail.
So many options you have to completely opt out of any responsibility and accountability yet you complain that you have it bad?
How and where can this be?
The only way I could see being a woman as hell is the fact that you have to deal with other women, well we do that too.
It seems the "hell" of being a woman is greatly exagerrated.
Ladies, life as a man is not the paradise of freedom, leisure and privilege you seem to think it is. The feminists lied to you. Working, which is essentially every man's destiny, is something I personally find grossly overrated and quite loathsome the preponderance of the time. Do I have a realistic opportunity to have a woman support me? No.
Even with the numerous disadvantages men face in these braindead Western societies, life as a man is not "hell" just because one was born male. The same concept applies even more to women.
