It’s that time of the month and I feel like ranting. The world is not feminist. Both men and women have to go through trials and tribulations, but men mostly have it easier.
First of all, women have to go through menstruation. We bleed for one week each month and do not get rewarded for it.
Menstruation rewards: 0
The only positive side to periods that it enables us (or most of us) to eventually become pregnant. Pregnancy is a good and bad thing. It hurts in various ways but it means we get to create a bundle of joy. This is also something a woman can’t do without the help of a man because apparently women can’t do things by themselves *sarcastic face*.
Pregnancy rewards: potential baby (if miscarriage does not occur or woman can’t conceive)
But in order to receive the bundle of joy, we have to go through childbirth: a very painful thing. Our reward for childbirth is a baby, which we have to take care of and love even though it pukes on us, poops on us and keeps us up at night. We try to even out the responsibility between the mother and the father but if the father does most of the physical work (which gives us money), then we have to do the baby work (which does not).
Childbirth: baby (that we have to take care of and might grow up to hate us or get sick at a young age and die therefore leaving us heartbroken)
But men on the other hand get rewarded for what they have to go through. For example, they work hard all day and get burned out or stressed quite often. However if a man has a good job, not only are women more attracted to them but they also receive a lot of money. People say money isn’t important but your life would change a whole lot if you lost all of the money you had now. I would include this con of hard work with the pro of earning money in the female section of this rant, but it is proven that in most jobs, women earn less than men #TheWorldIsFeminist
Hard work rewards: Earning more money.
In conclusion, unless women can somehow get rid of periods forever and make a baby by putting a pill in the oven and baking it until it becomes human, men will always have it better. But that’s just my opinion.
