However, change in that regard is occurring....excruciatingly slowly certainly....but it is occurring and I fully believe that someday (that ephemeral "some day") Planet Earth will become a place of fairness, equality, and respect for all its people. It will take millenia I'm sure, but some day!
But in the meantime, I have never been one of those females who would rather be male. In reality my satisfaction with my gender is due to many different things, including the female propensity for compassion, caring, loving, and all things warm and fuzzy!
But the biggest reason I am happy being female and extremely glad that I am not male, is much less admirable. In fact, I am slightly embarrassed to tell you. Basically, it all boils down to one simple aspect of being male vs. being female.
Their clothes are boring.
There, I've said it. Boring, uninteresting, tedious, repetitive, and downright dull!
For most of recorded history the male of the species has worn some variation of pants and a shirt with a jacket. Blah! Blah! Blah!! Over and over, day after day, year after year, century after century....pants, shirt, jacket. Oh the monotony!
Think about it:
|Vikings - 10th Century|
Lots of different colors, but the basic thing is still: pants, shirt, and a jacket!
Different syles, different lengths and different designs, but the basic thing is almost always: pants, shirt, and a jacket!!
From straitlaced, uptight, trussed up like a turkey to loose, hot, and too cool for school, nevertheless: Pants, Shirt, and a Jacket!
From the day they are christened:
to the day they are buried:
PANTS, SHIRT, AND A JACKET!!! ARRRRGGGHHHH!
How do men stand it???
