Do you wish you'd been born as a boy (or girl)?

In all the years that I've lived on planet earth as a female, I have never wished to be a male. It's so much better being a female. Females can do so many wonderful things. We're mini-creators and givers of life. We can hold regular paying jobs, make money and live longer than males. Women, not cowboys, tamed the Wild West. It's true! Ultimately we're the people that hold the planet together. Why would I ever want to be a boy? What about you? Have you ever wished that you were born as a boy? Or, born a girl?

Nope, I'm fine as is. Though I've seen things like dating, relationships, some laws being lopsided towards the female gender, I'm fine as a guy. Oh and so many more people believe and have sympathy for women. Women are innocent always and are given breaks in the law. But guys get manipulated; guys get the shaming tactics; more than half the time the guy is automatically guilty despite what really happened.

I am very happy to be born as a boy. I have never wished to be born as a girl though girls have many of their advantages. I would also like to be born as a boy afterlife. lol

I was born a girl and have never wished to be anything else. I really don't understand ppl that feel that way...but I guess to each his own. "COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS" **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I do not like to be a girl. In my country, people think that a girl must get married when she is on that age. But to boy, they do not limit the age. So, I can live alone and enjoy the free life. I can choose when to be married whenever I want. Besides, I can find a job easily than a girl. It is a culture that people think boy is more important than girl. Alough government said both male and female are equality, there are many unequal things happend.

I am a girl but there are times when I wish I was born a boy. It has to basically do with my culture since women are not given as much "freedom" as men are. We are expected to stay home and cook, clean, take care of the children, go pray, etc. while the men are expected to only be the breadwinners of the household. Also, being a girl isn't always the easiest thing since I found that girls are much more harder on girls in response to acceptance in comparison to boys (during my school years).

I wanted to be a boy when I was younger. I was constantly being told I couldn't do certain things because I was a girl, or I wasn't allowed to play with boy toys, or I should behave more "ladylike". I also, as a child, didn't know as many boys who were being abused as much as I was, though as an adult I know that people of either gender can be abused. Now, as an adult, I don't want to be either gender. I don't want to think about gender. I just want to be me. I am physically female, yes. I have no problem saying that. However, when people try tell me what I can or can't be or do, or how I have to think, or why I think the ways I do based off gender, I tell them to shut up and leave me alone. Because I am me, and that is all.

I agree, I am female and never wanted to be male. I love being a girl, there is nothing more fun than getting dressed up, going out with friends, talking about boys.. All the fun stuff the girls do. And plus growing up with my brother also made me release that boys are boys and are different but very rarely care about anything. Also, I know girls can be a little on the mean side to other girls, but I am still very happy I was born a girl. After all as the old elementry saying went Girls Rule!!!! LOL (that was a flashback)
