Man vs woman!
While there are exceptions to the pros and cons that are linked with being a man or a woman, stereotypes generally spring from a version of reality and are believed to exist for a reason. And it is based on these stereotypes that certain expectations are put on all persons, whether rightly or wrongly, in accordance with their gender. Considering this, experts have now come up with a list of pros and cons of being a man or a woman, reports The Dominion Post.
Pros of being a woman
After divorce, women hold up better.
Women can get away with crying.
Much more interesting clothing and accessory options.
Women can multi-task.
Pros of being a man
Men's bodies don't give them weird mood swings.
Men generally get more social respect, and people often think them to be more intelligent than they really are.
Cons of being a woman
Expectation that they'll be manicured, primped and preened to a high degree at all times.
When men gossip, it's "networking"; when women talk, it's "bitching".
Pressure to have children, thanks to a ticking biological clock.
Cons of being a man
Expected to be manly; those who are not, spend their lives apologising for it.
Not allowed to enjoy romantic comedies.
Men are expected to make the first move on dates, propose to their partners, and make all the big decisions.
Not as socially accepted to get plastic surgery so often stuck with the hand you've been dealt.
