I hate it when these happens, we men are polite and courteous to our women, we lift the toilet sit for them, we never tell them they're fat, we never bothered how they look (because they're always beautiful!), they can wear pants while we can't wear skirts without being ridiculed (I'd like to try some man skirts but not kilts)... Ph jeez... I guess gender equality is not yet that equal.. hahaha!

What i dont like is, when i walk with a woman, if there is an easy job that quite fun, they always say, "woman should have a same oppurtinity with man", and then they take my job / thing away, and i as men has to let the woman get that. But when a hard job come, they will say, "u ask a woman to do this? Are u really a Man!!!?" and then i ended up doing the job. Sorry is just some of my experince, is funny thought. But off course, i respect woman, beside that, they have many plus that man dont have. And i c many woman whose ability far suppress man, event in the man world. Ok, that it for me. And my post dont intend to ridicule, i respect woman in so many way. Thank u

LOL, so im not the only person feeling that. but its ok, woman and man are different, but one and the other need each other, so i think, we should cherish that difference to enrich our life. I mean what gonna happen in this world if there is only man or only woman. A One gender world would be very suck, and there is no way i want to live in that world. :p

I am a female and honestly speaking, for how many years, I still do insecure for men. Maybe, gender equality is not yet really equal and I am trying hard to take away this feeling of stress and depress. I sometimes do have emotional unstable. I guess, there is nothing I can do.

I am female . . . and I'd have to agree gender equality is not yet that equal. Gosh, we could go on forever talking about this subject (and the sensitivity of it!). You mentioned "we men" . . . but all men are not like that . . . just as all women are not the same (whether it's a good or bad trait). There are both advantages and disadvantages to being either (please don't make me list them - ha ha). And I say if you want to wear a man skirt, go for it!!
