Top 11 Reasons Why It’s Awesome Being a Woman
Think about these 11 things the next time you think, “It sucks being a girl.”
This article is inspired by two things: the recent article posted on CollegeCandy called “Dude’s List: Top 11 Reasons He’s Happy He’s a He Instead of a She,” and the fact that one too many of my girlfriends have said to me lately, “It sucks being a girl.”
Oh, really? Let me remind you of 11 amazing things you dudes and disheartened ladies may have forgotten. Here’s why being a female is simply, unequivocally awesome:
Unlike men who wake up and look the same every single day, we have the luxury and privilege to experiment, camouflage, and highlight our best features with makeup. One minute we look like the sweet, sun kissed girl next door with the glossy lips – the next, we’re the sexy siren with the come-hither eyes.
2. Um hello, free stuff?
Sure, we’ll take that free drink at the bar. Oh, we don’t have to pay cover? And we get the first available cab and an extra scoop of ice cream at Pinkberry because we winked? How does that song go? “I enjoy being a girl…”
I don’t know if you guys know this, but breasts are pretty amazing. Scratch that, they’re exquisite, no matter their shape or size. And we get to play with them, whenever and wherever we want.
4. Legs for Days
Speaking of body parts, now’s the time of year when we get to show off more of our beautiful assets that leave men weak in the knees: our legs. Skirts, shorts, dresses, bathing suits – you name it, we’re wearing them to show our beautiful stems off. No one wants to see anything on a guy above his knees. Really, dude working out in hot pants. No one.
5. Nice things.
Why do we have such nice apartments, with such beautiful furniture and clean counters and bathrooms? Oh that’s right, because we don’t like living in our own filth, unlike our male counterparts. That’s why many guys don’t have nice things until a woman enters the picture.
