It Sucks To Be A Man: 66 Guys Explain Why

  • 0

6. We’re not allowed to fight back if a woman hits us.

“Not being allowed to fight back if a woman hits you. Also, if she hit you, you probably deserved it.”

Kaalcite


7. We are success objects.

“Being stereotyped as you’re the man you need to be the breadwinner and take care of the family financially but my gf doesn’t agree with the woman staying home with the kids and cooking and cleaning the house. But she doesn’t work or clean and I pay all the bills… But for the record I love her and I get to be the house wife too so at least everything gets done right.”

8. We’re invisible to everybody.

“I wish I wasn’t so invisible to everybody. I’m so lonely. I haven’t physically touched another human in so long. I miss touch. I miss comfort.”

9. We’re always viewed as the guilty one.

“Always viewed as the guilty one.”

10. We’re always the wrong person in every situation involving women or kids, no matter what.

“You’re always wrong. Always. You are the instigator of every conflict, but you’re also expected to rush into every conflict. A guy watching the kids is a creep. A guy walking at night is a threat. You’re always the wrong person in every situation involving women or kids, no matter what.”

11. We rarely get hugs.

“How rarely we get hugs. From my experience men are supposed to be hardasses with no sentimental feelings. But goddamnit a single hug from either gender can make our entire day.
Also while I’m at it, literally any touch from a female is a major thing for a lot of men, I’m talking hand on shoulder, hug, arm grab, I can’t put into words how that feels, and no, it’s not in a pervy way.”
