Do you ever wish you weren't female?

My reason is that being woman is never made to be anything desirable, or inspiring, or enviable... being a woman you aren;t credited with such honor and praise as men are, you cant expect to reach the same fame as men, and man basically kicks and knocks womens image down, so why would you want to be one? Would a man ever want to be one? I doubt it. I wouldnt necessarily want ot be a man, but I would just like to escape this lack of a glorious promise. ... Yes, women can do the same things as man, but does she ever get the recognition? No. Does her name get wirtten in the history books? No. Maybe a handful/ The rest of the time, she is blotted out from history and existence, Is that fair? No.... Just wondering if and when other females feel as I do sometimes.... Brinlarr- what a sexist insult!! I do NOT like to be thought of as a piece of meat, exclusive of a human individual!! How terrible!! But its not our (womens) fault that its this way. Its mans own fault he wouldnt want to be in our own shoes. Maybe then, thats just their little way of making themselves feel better!

I think you sell women short.Women allow themselves to be knocked down by buying into the crap thats thrown at them through mass media.There are plenty of powerful women who are in historyy books and as time passes there will be more great strides by women.Here are some women that have some jobs and power that I would...

yes , but if you have a great rack or a nice booty you are admired and its a worthwhile trade off At the end of the day its not what credit you get for what you do but how pleasing you are to your man

Women have every opportunity as men in this country. If they have the ability they can be as successful or more.

No way. Cramps suck but I would never give up that look on a man's face where they have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. It's really quite fun. I've made guys cry before. If you ask me, women are treated second string only if they don't have enough ambition to make people understand that they're not. Plus... More

Honey, why do you think it's called HIStory? Cause all the pen holders were men. Of course women get recognition. Should we get more? Sure. But haven't you ever heard the saying, 'behind every great man, there's a woman'? I'd say that's pretty inspiring...if not empowering. Let's see a man give birth... More

I think some females are not a victim of not being recognized by society, they are a victim of their own victimized thinking. You are thinking that you are being erased from society, when, really, society is waiting for women to take the initiative to take equal power... More

Women can't do all the things that men are able to do and vice verse. We do get honor and credit for the things we do. Queen Elizabeth, Oprah, Condaleza Rice, Hilary Clinton, Joan of Arc, Nefertiti, Mother Theresa. These are only some of the great women. Look up the great women and you will find more. I am proud...

From your question I keep reading the same thing, 'See me'. What have you done that you were not recognized?

Well it is true that women are mostly the degraded,oppressed, vulnerable,discredited sex. But thats what makes things so challenging, we tolerate a lot.

I only dislike being a female once a month. And I agree with you we do get treated very poorly. If it wasn't for the women in this world then there would not be any males and visa versa.

I think men and women are supposed to compliment each other.
