So, I've been a guy for 39 years and I was looking at some girls tonight with their boobs and hair and pocket books and whole girl thing and thought to myself...

"Is It Weird To Be A Girl?"

What say you, Ladies?

Weird?

Normal?

Boobs are fun to have?

You feel girly?

What up?

Is it weird to be a girl?

Thank you.

No, being a girl is normal.

It's being a guy that's weird.

It's weird sometimes. Like, there are times when you have to be aware of the fact you have boobs, like when wearing a really tight shirt. You have to check all the buttons are still there. And when you run and they jiggle all over the place... Guys don't have that problem. And you can't just get rid of a shirt if you're too hot because society says it's not right to show boobage although guys have nipples too so I object to the double standard, especially in summer at the park.

But I think it's probably weirder being a guy. All those raging hormones and all and men are so emotional all the time.

I dunno, I haven't lived life any other way! Haha.

Personally I think it may be weird to be a guy, I mean, no boobs, an extra package- what's that like?

It's prob same for both genders-- we don't really know what it's like to be the other one.

To answer your questions:

Weird? No, I don't think so. 'Tis what I'm used to. :)

Normal? Yep.

Boobs are fun to have? "Fun", sure, they can be a huge pain.

You feel girly? Not at all.

What up? :)

Is it weird to be a girl? No, is it weird to be a guy?

You're welcome.

Actually I had cause quite recently to wonder about this. My doc put me on some pills that as a side effect made my boobs grow.

All of a sudden they bounced when I walked! I've never bounced before. Damn I've never had a cleavage before! So I'm walking along staring at my boobies bouncing thinking 'So this is what it's like. Weird!'

Pregnancy has that effect. I even wore bras when I was pregnant.

Now there's another aspect. How would you blokes handle that? No, I don't mean boobs in bras, I mean - oh, come on, you know what I mean.

Being a woman - normal, been one near 44 years though. Maybe it is just habit?

We have the luxury of being girly on a whim (which we are wont to do) or be a tomboy (which is great fun too) when not. Men cannot get away with the converse as easily as we can in that arena. Some can yes, but most cannot. I see more gals in baseball caps, than men in dresses anyway to support that theory.

I like having boobs. But, I have had them since I was in 5th grade, again it may be habit? And, since I pack 34 D's and have since I was only 13, I cannot say if I would prefer smaller. I can say I am not a long distance runner though. If I were, maybe they would suck greatly. But, I am not a runner so I am happy with them. The drawback being, I could never go braless, even before age became a factor. So, when I see a cute top that I cannot find a bra for, I may whimper for a bit about not being smaller.

And, that is what I say.

Ask me tomorrow?

Eh! I may feel the opposite and tell you something different if I change my mind.

After all, I AM a woman and that is my right!

Have a good one!

Oh I don't know - I dreamt I was a guy once. Guess the first thing I checked? And when I woke up I asked my Old Man if that was what it was like.

He said yup, pretty much.

Guys are weird. And dangly. But at least they always have something to do with their hands.

Actually, we do have a "jiggle" problem in two places.

While we're running, our own boobs can bonce up and down, even though they're very small. It feels kind of weird while it's happening.

And then downstairs, depending on the looseness of the shorts and or underwear we're wearing, our, uh, package can bounce up and down as well. This is prevalent when it's warm and they're baggy and saggy. When they're all tight, there's no problem.

And there's another problem with being a guy. Since our main sex organ is outside the body, it's always being stimulated by the pants we're wearing. You wonder why men are so horny all the time? It's because on a given day, we're under constant stimulation, whether desired or not.

No wonder my husband likes the baggy stuff, it moves a lot.

I hate the baggy stuff. No boxers for me! I'm already horny enough; I don't need the extra stimulation. Nice and snug. And there's a reason why I don't run/jog anymore. I'll only wear boxers if I'm trying to conceive...

I do like holes in my pants pockets... :)

As for girls/women... I like boobs. Nothing weird about them. I do find all the make up, long hair, bras and fashion stuff weird. Who's got time? I spend like 5 minutes grooming and it's already too much work, and I'm bored with it. I don't know how women do it. An hour putting on make up and then another hour trying to find the right clothes? I've got no patience for that -- wake me up after you're done. I can get ready and get out of the house in 5 minutes.

The PMS thing is extremely weird, though. Granted, men have mood swings, too, but PMS is downright scary. I try to schedule vacations around them.


Women in men's shirts or pajamas are sexy as hell though.

That's funny, because it wasn't until I was pregnant that I really felt comfortable being female. If my body was more amenable to actually giving birth (I had three c-sections) I'd probably have almost as many kids as SherryTex. I loved being pregnant, and I loved nursing.

Here's a bit of weirdness from the male POV: Because girls hide their girlie plumbing behind the wall, they have special doctors to keep it all in working order. And as far as I can tell they need an operator's manual to take care of those parts between doctor visits.

We just let our plumbing hang from the wall, all ugly, and it sort of takes care of itself (for the non-interpersonal stuff that is).

Haha.

But you know some girl's plumbing hangs out much more than others. Varies from woman to woman, some have it all up in there but some people's "flaps" hang down at least a couple inches.

It's wicked annoying to have to constantly adjust your shirt (or bathing suit) to make sure the melons don't fall out of the cart.

What's wrong with long hair? When I'm in a hurry I just pull it up into a ponytail. Very quick and simple.

And I can do my make-up in about 10 minutes.

It depends on the activity and the size of the boobs. :D

I have a friend who is overendowed (I tease her about needing a size Z-cup bra.) We used to take Salsa dance classes together and I would have to lead during the class because there weren't enough guys. At least once during class I would accidently brush my hand or my arm against her boobs. Oooops Sorry. (It is really weird to brush against another woman's boobs when you don't mean to.) Then, she would say, "Don't worry about it. They are always getting in the way." :rolleyes:

Leading in Swing dance class could also get weird, if the woman I was dancing with was the same height and equally endowed then it could get weird. In closed dance position the leader's right side is pressed next to the follower's left side, so my right boob would be pressed to hers. Since, I am not a lesbian, it just felt weird. :Shrug:

Is it weird being a girl? I don't know. I'm a woman. I haven't been a girl in many many years. :tongue

I love long hair on women. Oh, do I. But I just can't understand having long hair myself! All that hair. getting in your face all the time. Plus the maintenance. Just keeping it dry and neat is difficult enough, plus all the styling, straightening, curling, unfizzing, hilighting, coloring, etc. etc. Not to mention an extra thing to flap around beside the breasts. I don't know how they do it (or guys who have long hair). I had medium long hair once and I couldn't be happier to cut it all short again.

As I said, putting it in a ponytail gets it out of your face.

It does take extra maintenance. I don't curl it anymore but I go every three months or so(sometimes longer) to do some coloring/cutting or glazing(just gives the hair extra shine). Some women think of it as a fun thing to do going to the salon chatting with the other women there and it's a nice kind of pampering having someone work on your hair.

The hardest thing is keeping the tangles and knots under control so you have to use conditioner faithfully.

Boobs are fun (everyone loves boobs!).

I have long hair. About midway down my back right now. I usually get to cutting it when it gets into my pants. It doesn't take me much longer to do anything with it really long than mostly long. But the only thing I do is brush and maybe put into braids (from one to eight depending on what I feel like). It takes a little longer to braid when it's long, but not much. When it gets really long, it doesn't really get in the way. I think it's because the weight of it hels pull it down. And when it's really long, there's no such thing as a 'bad hair day' with locks sticking out all funny-- again, it hangs there. The only problem I have is that because I'm really bad about getting it trimmed (about once every two-three years I cut off a bunch) it knots up as easily as Christmas tree lights in storage. But that's easily remedied by kid's detangler. =)

But I think the trump card for women: multiple orgasms. XD

Long hair is a hassle, but it's also incredibly useful. Unfortunately, I cut mine, only to realise hours later, that now people could tell when I was watching them. I can't wait until it grows back. That said, I did get rather fed up of being mistaken for a woman or being called a hippie.

I had long hair when I was in college. It was a typical 90s length, went to my shoulders. I was told I looked like Eddie Vedder or Eric Draven from The Crow.

I wore it that way for about four years until I got married, then had it cut short.

It's easier this way.

Because of a Guelph woman. :D

However, I've never seen the point--I sunburn way too easily. And I think we should have laws that say men have to wear shirts all the time, rather than having equality by allowing women to go topless. Some men really shouldn't wear anything less revealing than a full-length priest's robe...

As for long hair, I've had it short. I prefer it that way simply because it's less hot. But my daughter has threatened murder if I cut it so it stays long.

My hair doesn't tangle much, and it doesn't generally get in my face. I don't use conditioner, colouring, or have it curled. I wash it regularly with shampoo, let the air dry it, and brush it two or three times per day.

I understand where Ray's coming from on the whole "women take an hour to get ready thing," but I'm one of those women who doesn't wear makeup or have a fancy hair style. As long as I know what I want to wear (which is most of the time) it takes me fifteen minutes from waking to "out the door and ready to work." Most of that time is spent sitting down. (More details would be TMI. :D)

*breaks out into a song*

I'm a girl, and by me that's only great!
I am proud that my silhouette is curvy,
That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait
With my hips kind of swivelly and swervy.

I adore being dressed in something frilly
When my date comes to get me at my place.
Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy,
Like a filly who is ready for the race!

When I have a brand new hairdo
With my eyelashes all in curl,
I float as the clouds on air do,
I enjoy being a girl!

When men say I'm cute and funny
And my teeth aren't teeth, but pearl,
I just lap it up like honey
I enjoy being a girl!

I flip when a fellow sends me flowers,
I drool over dresses made of lace,
I talk on the telephone for hours
With a pound and a half of cream upon my face!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl... like... me.

When men say I'm sweet as candy
As around in a dance we whirl,
It goes to my head like brandy,
I enjoy being a girl!

When someone with eyes that smoulder
Says he loves ev'ry silken curl
That falls on my iv'ry shoulder,
I enjoy being a girl!

When I hear the compliment'ry whistle
That greets my bikini by the sea,
I turn and I glower and I bristle,
But I happy to know the whistle's meant for me!

I'm strictly a female female
And my future I hope will be
In the home of a brave and free male
Who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl... like... me.

Urinals puzzle me too. Why would I want to stand in front of a slab of porcelain and splatter piss onto my own pants? I go to the bowl every time.

As for the whole "men whizzing next to one another" thing, we're actually preprogrammed to completely ignore any other male entity in the men's room. We physically can't see each other within the confines of that room--except at gay bars, where the two auras cancel.

Forty minutes, if I shower. But that's because I usually spend 20 minutes checking e-mail and waiting for my hair to dry some on its own. More than five minutes with a hair dryer and I'm bored.

The coolest urinals I ever saw had little round discs placed on top of the drain. Each disc had an arrow which was moved by the stream of urine to a point value on the surface of the disc. It wasn't unusual to say to the guy standing next to you, "Hey, I got a ten," to which he might reply, "That's nothing, I got a fifty!":)

Ok. So I wear makeup, have long hair, shave etc... yet somehow, my bald husband spends more time getting ready than I do. He's a bit excessive when it comes to grooming.

As for being female-I like it. Getting used to having boobs takes some time but then you barely notice them...until you lactate. Now that can be quite odd. To leak, drip or even spray milk everytime you hear a baby cry, go too long without nursing or have sex, well it's great sticky fun.

I loved being pregnant. I loved being in labor. Sometimes painful-but what a rush! It's no wonder I've done it five times.

Hmm, what pills? Babies and nursing just about killed mine. Surgical lift, nah, but pills...hey now...


To answer the OP.

Its been a good 18 years since I was a girl and it wasn't much fun. What with the stupid teen boys being all, teen boyish and lame. Then there are the double standards for behavior and the obsession with boobs. Bah!

Being a woman though, now that rocks.

Women can totally do that. Takes practice and you need to use a hand to aim, but it can be done. A hippy chick from Portland that I used to know, did it all the time. You can prolly google instructions.
I've tried to pee standing up before, and yes a woman can do it, but it'd definitely be a lot easier with the opposite anatomy. Plus, it's a lot harder to write your name in the snow- there's a lot more scuttling-like-a-crab involved when you're a chick, and scuttling makes for poor penmanship :D

On another note, watching a girl pee standing up is one hell of a party trick.

Variety is the spice of life. :D

Actually, the monthly mood swings got to the point where I had a chat with my doctor. She said, "Take calcium." I did. No more major mood swings. (Or cramps.) And I found a supplement in chocolate flavour. Now that rocks--being told to take chocolate by your doctor.

*light bulb* Kind of like what they give you at Hogwarts for Dementors. Same problem, same solution...

If I didn't love men so much, I'd rather be a guy. I can pee anywhere with ease, no periods, wouldn't have to attend bridal and baby showers. Wouldn't be stuck listening to things I don't care about, or gossip. Weight would come off a helluva lot faster. The lists goes on.

As for being female-I like it. Getting used to having boobs takes some time but then you barely notice them...until you lactate. Now that can be quite odd.

I'd say it's not better to have to get used to a constant erection, especially when you're only 12 or 14 and you have to wear gym shorts and there's nowhere to hide it. It's the most embarrassing thing to be a boy/man, not to mention uncomfortable and downright cruel sometimes. And wait until you first, you know, ejaculate. Now that can be quite odd. Like, what the heck is that stuff? What do I do with that stuff? Ick!


As for restrooms, yeah, I find the whole thing about urinals weird. A bunch of guys, standing next to each other (most of the time there are no partitions!), and just splashing around, while a bunch of other guys stand behind you, watching. It's just strange and gross. I used to be really pee shy and refuse to use the urinals. I'm a bit better now, but still won't use it the bathroom is crowded. I'd wait for a toilet instead.

Hey at least with the "bend over and cough" bit it's over rather quickly. I'd gladly trade you. How'd you like to give this a try?

1. Strip. Put on paper gown. Lay on back.

2. Slip heels into stirrups which are approximately 3 feet apart.

3. Scoot. Yes scoot your ass to the edge of the bed while someone stands between your legs, with a bird's eye view, directing you to keep moving on down until you feel like you're going to fall off.

4. Breathe.-Now the first thing you'll want to do is hold your breath and clench up but no-try to breath while what feels like a pair of ice-cold scissors are inserted into your privates.

5. Relax. As the "scissors" are OPENED with click and a "pinch".

6. Count the dots in the ceiling tile above you and stifle any protests as something akin to a pipecleaner is inserted and then rubbed against your cervix, scratching away.

7. Exhale as the "scissors" are released and removed only to be replaced by two cold, lubricated fingers which prod around as the other hand presses down on your abdomen, capturing and kneading your ovaries.

8. Thank God, that it is over, the hand leaves, the gel oozes out and then WAIT!-what's that? A finger shoots into your rectum to get a better feel of those ovaries. WHat the hell?! (and yes, this is what thorough docs/midwives will do)

Which would you prefer (S & M afficionadas need not reply;))

Female / Male Comparison
(In my house)

I have boobs, Mr. Vagabond has pecs
I carry a purse, he carries a backpack (which is more than twice as big as my purse, I might add)
I shave my legs, he shaves his face
I put my hair in a ponytail, he puts his hair in a ponytail (or at least he did before he cut it off)
I wear lip gloss, he uses Blistex
I use smelly-good shower gel, he uses smelly-good shower gel (his just has scary names)
I wear Hanes underwear, he wears Hanes underwear (mine just have flowers and stuff)
I wear jeans, he wears jeans (mine are just a lot shorter)
I wear T-shirts, he wears T-shirts
I get emotional once a month, he gets emotional when he can't find the clicker
I file my nails, he clips his nails
I cut his hair, he cuts my hair (For real - this really happens in my house.)

Honestly, the only real difference is the dangly bits. That, plus I'm waaaaay cuter! :D

Most of us spend the absolute minimum time in the buff in front of people we don't know. We're all shower, immediately wrap body in huge towel, quickly pull on clothes.

Mr Rima and my male friends say that the men's locker room is different--like, yeah, naked, so what?

I'm getting winded just thinking about it.

It's true that we all started out as female. So embrace your feminine side, guys. Soon men will be obsolete anyway, when they find a way to clone humans.

so what happens when they figure out how to make an artificial womb?

we women actually GROW an organ
to help the baby survive in the belly.

Then it would be a true sexual revolution. When sex and reproduction could be totally, so unequivocally separate, that would only lead to an explosion of sexual proclivity. It also makes the whole argument of homosexuality (that it's against nature, etc. etc.) irrelevant.

Nah, pain relief drugs generally cause more problems than they fix, when it comes to that. Plus, it ruins the birth high. Wayyy stronger than a meth or heroin hit and it lasts from 1-3 days!

I agree! Boobs are awesome! Being a girl is awesome! I can't imagine being a man. Girls are softer to touch and we smell good and are much nicer to look at than men. :)


I second that. I like how no two boobs are alike. They all seem to have a personality on their own. Smallish, arrogant ones are the best I reckon. The softness of the female body sure complements the muscularity of the male physique.

:Wha: Giving birth was the most incredibly f**king painful experience of my life. Having a root canal without anesthesia would have been more enjoyable. And I did all the natural child birth classes, breathing exercises crap. In my opinion and based on my experience: it's lies, all lies. :tongue

Kind of like all people's ears are slightly offset. Forgive me, I can't remember the article--it had to do with symmetry of the human body.

Note added in edit: A while back a class discussion was centered on homologous reproductive structures in males/females, and the usual "pene-bean" pairing came up. Someone pointed out the scrot had an analogous (not homologous) part in females, and I said, "Yeah, her purse." (It's really the labia majora, if I recall correctly).

There is another alternative. Next time he's too embarassed to talk about it, hop out of bed and go fetch the flashlight and magnifying glass. tell him that if he won't talk about it, then perhaps he can at least hold still.

By the way, Karen, I'm pleased to meet you. I was born and raised in The Dalles. I'm a long way from home, and sometimes I feel so homesick I just stare at the map. Next time you go outside and breath in that fresh, cool air, and look out at the mountains, send some of that energy to me.

Wow--this is a fun thread! What's cool about it is the girls get an idea of what it's like to be a guy.

I like being a woman. I loved being pregnant--I felt great with each pregnancy. Getting the kids out was not my idea of a fun time--I ended up with 2 C-sections. The breast fairy was overly generous with me, though, and if there was a transplant program, I'd be happy to donate. And then being in my late 40's (yikes!), they've gone a bit south to retire. And don't get me started on menopause! This is proof that God is a man, and he was really pissed about that whole apple incident in the Garden of Eden.

My hair hangs below my shoulders, but I don't do anything more than wash my hair, brush it, and trim my bangs when they get annoying. I have make up, but don't use it. Luckily, we are very casual in my office, and I go to work in blue jeans and wet hair. The only rule is to show up clean. I can do that!

I can't remember--someonementioned calcium for mood swings? I should try that! Because the Zoloft is making me gain weight!!!

Here in Ontario, women are legally allowed to go topless outside.

... O_o But we don't! [Hey, you wanna start a stampede or somethin'?]
My theory is that some man thought of that and convinced a woman it was her idea. Jeesh.

Being a girl can be fun. I"m personally not into the makeup and the hair and the fashion thing [ok, a little fashionista, but not much]. But it's my choice. I used to be all about that. Now, as Maestro said, who has time?
On the other hand, I know guys who wear more makeup than me and spend hours in the salon.. not all gay, But there are lots of guys who throw on clothes and leave the house, bathed or otherwise. This part isn't about gender. It's personality.

Only the anatomy is different. Some girls like it and some don't. Some aren't comfortable with it because someone else was a total jerk to them about it. Like my friend's dad always calling her fat, or her friends in gr 5 harrassing her because she already had breasts. Other people are really comfortable with their shape/size. I'm lucky, because I have efficiency boobs. Normally, they are hardly there. But when I needed them for nursing? Whoa baby. From AA to B during pregnancy, and up to D while nursing. Hint: if you are nursing DON"T bend over.. gravity is not your friend. And I loved being pregnant once I stopped barfing. And I luckily did not have complications with delivery either. Thank you God! Also, my weight came off in 6 months each time. It is pretty bizarre that you have to watch what you eat and drink while you're pregnant and nursing in case you hurt your baby. Like while I was nursing I couldn't have hot peppers. Which I don't normally even like.. But it is amazing to produce a little person out of your own body and be able to feed it.
Hormonal fluctuations happen to guys during teen years, and then basically disappear. Lucky so and so's. Some of us barely notice a change and others turn into, how did that lady put it?, "inbred hillbillys with knife skills".
My sister-in-law's male co-workers note the circles on her calendar and leave her ALONE for the week. I get a little cranky one day, then teary the next, then I'm back to normal: crazy.

But sometimes, when we have our little visitor it's hard to convince the spousal unit that NOOOO we can't WALK to the car! Especially since an hour before we were truckin' along just fine.. and NO dear, you don't want to know why! No we can't stop on the way home to get your lotto tickets..HOME NOW!! We don't mean to be grouchy, but you don't want to know the details, and we don't want to talk about it anyway [excuse for a pukefest], and we really appreciate you bearing with us for all this, and if you touch me, I will get violent. :*( Does that sound like fun to you?

We also have to watch how we talk to guys, because our guy will think we're flirting and get mad. Or if we're single and we're just joking around, the guy might think we're offering something we're not. That sucks. I mostly follow the Victorian rule.. just look at the pavement 10 feet in front of me.
