Since us women have to go through periods and young ages and we have to go through the pains of childbirth do you think we have it harder than men? Or do you think that women and mean have equal hardships? Or maybe even do you think that actually men have it harder? Share your opinions here!

i think women suffers a lot than men..in terms of physical aspects..but when it comes to emotional issues i can say that men suffers a lot...women are usually vocal with what they feel and can easily share it with their friends..men do opposite they try to hide what they feel and often solve it their own...

I think that's a stereotype when it comes to women, and also what you said about men. I think a lot of women don't really like to express their feelings out loud. In fact I know a lot of women who just like to keep it all bottled in, which is very unhealthy.

Actually.........Every body said that both man and women had equal hardship.But I think women have hard time than the man because 24 hours women have to do house hold work ...

Well not all women have to do housework all day. A lot of women have jobs and are independent and some men do housework.

I think that depends on our situation in life, where we live, and other circumstances. Both sexes have their problems.

I'm not talking about what happens in their life, i'm just talking about what we have to deal with by just being a man or woman in general.

Of course, being a woman, I want to say that we have it harder but I think that men have it really hard as well. They do have to put up with us after all. lol I know my husband gets frustrated with me because I suffer from PMS, DMS, and AMS...pre during and after menstrual syndrome. hee hee.

When God created women, I believe He gave them something that made them worthy of all respects and more lovable than anything - The ability to "Bear". Women bear all the pain right from giving birth to bringing up to facing the problems related to health and so much more. I am not saying that men do not have their own hardships but when it comes to a comparison in numbers, and the pain, I feel that women are more subjected to these than men. Maybe this is why they say that it is easy to be a father but much difficult to be a mother. The pain she undergoes is really that is worth remembering throughout the life but once the child grows up s/he becomes thankless and never acknowledges this fact.

I think we both have diffferent pains from the others. I think moms have it harder then dads because in most cases if you are a mom you don't get sick days, you just keep on going because you have to. I know when my husband is sick he is usless. When I am sick sure I am moody but I keep going I have things to do and things to get done. I think most women have more stomach problems then some men. The mood swings I think my husband has me beat there lol! As a medical stand point it just seems like there is more stuff that can go wrong for women we just have more parts that can break I guess. Even my husband tells me he is glad he is not a women being a man is easier he only needs one doctor!

I think its only fair to say that which gender has it harder only until you have tried being both genders. So since no one has tried that, transvastites still cannot give birth and most women still has not strength like men, I say both are equal in hardships. About childbirth, my pregnancies are often smooth sailing (until the delivery) so I love being pregnant. I love feeling the baby move inside. I pity that men cannot experience this. Because I am a stay at home mom, I will never feel what pressures my husband would face to keep a job so I appreciate him that way.
