5 Female Privileges I’d Like To Pass On To Men!

March 6, 2018 Shubhreet

When your bae hosts a blog train, you better well be a part of it! And even though I’m sometimes the laziest friend to have around, I eventually somehow, someway, in last minute panic, manage to get my act together. This time is no different! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here I am at 11:40 PM, cranky from a heatstroke, trying to write a worthy blogpost on one of the five topics shared. Hopefully, I’ll do justice to it!

I post about gender equality frequently enough on my Instagram but today, we will do things a tad differently. I absolutely love being a woman. I wanna be born as a woman in all my lifetimes. But there are certain things I wouldn’t mind passing on to men just for the fun of it.

Here are five of those privileges:

1. PMS

To all those men who think PMS is a myth, in words of a well-known stand-up comic – Just take it and go! And come back to me after you have experienced it for at least 3 days! Then we’ll talk. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’d be more than happy if the male gender got to live through those 3-5 days of gloom and doom where the world seems like it’s ending for no apparent reason. Just don’t expect me to bring you chocolate ice-cream in the middle of the night!

2. Labour

And while we’re at it, lets throw in some labour pains too. According to Google baba, the pain experienced during giving birth is similar to 20 bones getting fractured at the same time. I honestly don’t give two hoots about the fact that women give birth everyday. It’s a damn feat and we are all Superwoman. Why should all men not get an opportunity to be Superman? There are machines now that can induce that pain. Ladies, I say we hook our men up!

3. Girls Night Out

Okay, enough of the nasty! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Let’s get to some genuinely fun stuff. Why a girls night out? Because a boys night out is not at all the same thing. Boys go out, they sit, drink, talk about cars and girls blah blah and that’s that. The bromance ends there. But a girls night out is so much more than that.

We spend hours deciding what we’re gonna wear, we do shots, we take over the dance floor and almost break our heels in the process. We take silly fun selfies with pouty poses and we gossip and bitch about everything and everyone. Not to mention, a bunch of girls having a blast together always has the attention of the whole pub. I really want men to experience what that’s like. No one notices a group of guys sitting on a table. :p

4. The Cheap Thrill of Saying ‘Not Interested’

Oh man! (no pun intended). This is gonna sound so mean but the whole kick behind saying no to guys approaching you at the bar when you’re out with your girls is something else. You men will never know what a cheap thrill it is! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I really genuinely want you to experience the feel of telling every guy who hits on you that – Unless you’re a 6 feet plus grammar nazi with a six pack, don’t even bother trying to crash girls night.ย Word!

5. OOTD and Waxing Schedules

Oh yes! The number one reason behind any outfit worn by a woman! I mean seriously, for all boys out there who think our outfit options are dependent upon what you like, get your head out of the sand! It’s so easy for you just wear shorts on a hot day because no one cares about your hairy legs. I also honestly don’t know how you live with so much hair. I mean YIKES! But for once, I would like guys to experience the joy (read pain) of choosing their outfits based on how much hair is there on the legs, arms and underarms. That is why women take so long to get ready! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also wanted to add more points like getting threading done once a week… But I only get five. For rest, we can continue this discussion on Instagram. See you there!
