8 Reason it’s F***ing Awesome to be a Woman

We know, it’s quite a jarring title, but why shouldn’t we count off the reasons it’s awesome to be a woman? If you’re a member of the majority, you already know that the fairer sex ROCKS. I mean, sure, misogyny runs rampant in most industries, men rarely take us seriously, and we’re the default perpetual target of harassment, but like… in spite of that crap, we manage to absolutely knock it out of the park on the reg. If you’re a boy who isn’t in the know, lemme tell you why women are awesome.


Here are 8 reasons why it’s f***ing awesome to be a woman.

Unlimited emotional liberty

Sorry for this one, boys, but society has decreed that “being emotional” is totally okay if you’re a lady. It’s totally unfair: you should feel free to own the whole spectrum of your emotions whether you’re a man or a woman…

… but, of course, society says that’s not cool. Regardless, if you’re an XX, you can feel free to cry whenever! Cry because you’re happy. Cry because you’re sad. Hell, cry just because you needed a good cry.

Just be prepared to go full-force on some dude if he asks whether or not you’re on your period.

Straight up fostering life

Ladies! We MAKE OTHER PEOPLE! How insane is that? Okay, sure, boys provide 50% of the genetic material—credit where credit is due. But they don’t have wombs! Or ovaries! Or the other internal organs that most women curse every month. We get to gestate lil’ humans inside of us, and ’til mad science catches up, it’s a girl’s only club!

Being a mother is frickin’ awesome!

Makeup, or: thanks, double standards

Okay, so makeup is sort of a double-edged sword, right? You wear it to work every day, and then the one day that you’re running late or just feeling too blah to do your usual routine, every single guy that you work with is asking if you’re sick. Wow, thanks, but no, this is just how I look.

But! On the bright side, a little spot of acne is easy enough to hide with concealer, so one little pimple won’t throw off a whole day. Besides that, wearing makeup is fun! And awesome! And unless they’re in front of a camera, boys don’t get to wear makeup, woohoo.

But hey, seriously, we’d be okay with men wearing makeup. Mostly so that I could ask if they’re sick when they don’t feel like putting it on.

Too short? Forget that, pop on some stilettos

Scene: you’ve got a date with a cute dude or gal who’s, like, six feet tall, and you’re only 5’4″. Wow! What a height difference! Surely the whole night is ruined!

WRONG. Bridge that gap with some artificial height: slip on a pair of 3″ heels and BOOM, you’re on top of the world. Maybe you’re even on top of your date, if they’re short enough!

If you’d rather squash the shorties on your path of conquest, consider some wedge heels. Either way, shoes give us power guys just don’t understand.

Say no thanks to latent homophobia

Have you ever seen a bunch of dudes shooting the breeze, when suddenly Chad compliments Michael’s awesome new top—and immediately feels the need to grunt and do a whole bunch of bicep curls to ensure everyone around him that he’s the manliest man that ever did man a man? How lame!

We girls, on the other hand, don’t have that problem. Compliment your friends, express envy of their new outfits, and even cuddle up on the couch to watch movies together without anybody batting an eye.

No, seriously, do all of those things. It’s wonderful.

Follicular switcheroo any old time

Tired of that old plain Jane hair color? No problem! With, like, $30 worth of bleach and hair dye you can swap over to a new hue in half an hour. Sure, boys can feel free to do that, too, but they don’t! So we’ll keep sustaining the Manic Panic market and look awesome with our outrageous colors.

Dying your hair!

Seriously, we totally live longer

By almost seven years on average! Can you believe that? I mean, it’s kinda no fun if you reach a ripe old age with your sweet husband and then he goes before you, but… I mean, other than that, think of all the possibilities! Got a male nemesis? No problem, with a little patience you’ll be dancing on his grave in no time! Just be super careful not to throw out your back or break your hip, ’cause you’re probably gonna be pretty old by then.

Insurance rates!

Four simple words: DRIVE CARS FOR LESS. Women are statistically proven to get into less accidents, so we’re rated as less of a risk by auto insurers!

Okay! I hope I’ve managed to thoroughly convince you that women are awesome, and certainly better than gross boys. If you’re still on the fence, I leave you with this completely true fact:

Women go to college to get more knowledge, but men go to Jupiter to get more stupider.
