Most feminists like to believe that the life of a man is so rosy and worry-free that they have coined the term ‘male privilege’ to buttress all their ideas.
But the truth is in reality, being either a man or a woman has got its pros and cons and no one can say outright that one gender is the supreme.
Here are some things women can easily do that men can’t:
1. A woman can cry and not be judged
Women can easily gain sympathy just by crying — in fact there is a saying that a woman’s tear is so expensive it can buy a whole town. A crying man is called a coward and instead of drawing sympathy will only attract him shame.
2. A woman can easily touch a man without his consent
Even if they really wanted to, you will never see a man complaining that a woman had touched him inappropriately — unless he wants to be laughed at! Reverse the situation and things will get completely messy!
3. A woman can accuse a man of rape
In Nigeria, and most parts of the world, rape is only taken seriously if a woman is the victim. Nobody wants to listen or ever believe that a woman is capable of raping a man.
4. A woman can throw the first punch without expecting one back
The easiest way to lose your respect as a man is get into a fight with a woman. Because of this, most men will rather swallow all provocation than fight a woman back.
5. A woman can openly say she is weak
Men are conditioned to be hard-boiled robots who never gets tired. It is no coincidence that you see most men killing themselves with work because they cannot easily admit they are weak.
6. A woman can openly admit fear
Even if a man is afraid, he is wired never to show it.
7. A woman can easily get help from anybody
Female beggars make more money than their male counterparts. Are men even allowed to beg? A woman can ask a man to give them their seat in public transport but not the other way round. Women are expected to be taken care of while a man must work hard for everything he wants.
8. Women get jobs easier than men
For most job positions, the bar of aptitude is lowered for women. A woman can easily be chosen for a job over a better-qualified man merely because she is a woman.
9. Women are easily believed than men
It is easier to trust a woman than a man because they are perceived to be more honest. During a fight, the woman’s version of the story is easily believed over the man’s. A woman can make the crowd beat an innocent man if she wants.
10. A woman can dress sexy and only be admired
Imagine a man wearing any of the types of revealing clothes most women wear…
