If I Were A boy!!!

July 19, 2009

From the day I was born and ever since I was old enough to think for myself, I've wondered why I was born a girl and not a guy. 

Being a guy would have been so much easier! No, lets not get into all the gender bias-cum-feminist discussion...that's not where I'm getting at(at least today). It's just that I would have preferred to be a guy...all for stupid trivial not having to dress up and look your best every time or not having to comb your hair every day, you get to wear all those over-sized and baggy clothes. 

You are allowed to roam on the streets of your neighborhood wearing old faded shorts at all time of the day and night.Walk out of the house anytime you want to, catch up with your friends, drink beer with them, discuss girls and you won't even get frantic calls from your parents about where you are and how you plan to get back home.

The joy of having a HUGE appetite and being able to digest all the food without thinking about the weight related issues. Life would have been so much more WONDERFUL! Not that being a girl is awful, it also has its own merits, but then, one always feels that the grass is greener on the other side! 

I've always envied my cousins. Most of 'em are guys and are nice enough to include me in their expeditions and conversations but it's just not the same!

    Suga: “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, until you get there. And then you realise it needs mowing too.”
    You’ll never have a guy telling a girl... or for that matter anyone that he would rather have been a woman. but look at it this way. women mature faster and have a stable’r’ head on their shoulders than men. they don’t have a constant hang-up with stuff that’s bigger. women look at the bigger picture and yet have the ability to look at the finer print, unlike men who can’t even find an elephant in the same room they’re standing in with. Women are more empathetic. They may fight like cats, but they don’t just go ahead bashing up someone just for the sake of bashing the person up (there’s gotta be a reason for a woman to lose it). Women know how to share their feelings (catch men ever sharing their true feelings with each other – they can’t stand being looked at as ‘sissies”). Women have finer tastes - that's a fact and can't be disputed. They aren’t as dirty and don’t go farting around. And women’s conversations are more than just “uh huh, yep okay then bye.” Hey, all’s not bad being a man though. However, i do agree with you – it’s sad that a woman needs to think twice before wearing something like shorts in public or going out alone at night – that’s ridiculous. Nice post and thanks for visiting. -- jai :)

    As you said - the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

    Some of the things that you mentioned - drinking beer, wearing faded shirts is a matter of choice.

    Some guys wouldn't do that. They like living (let us put it this way) normal lives.

    On the other hand, if gals choose not to drink beer it is because they choose not to.

    Not because they can't or something.

    I guess your cousins exaggerated things a bit :P

    As a boy,let me enlist tough life of guys:
    *We need to work till end of our life.If we're jobless at any point of time,we're gone.anybody can blast us , accusing us as jobless,yet when a girl of our age is jobless,she isn't bothered and she is treated with more respect.(Im not chauvinistic,its real...friends of parents never ask a girl whether she's working,but they nag us as soon as we leave college).
    *We need to spend looong time outside saree shops,dress shops,jewellery shop,etc etc.:-S
    *We could not show fear or emotions...if we show,then our manliness is in doubt.of course,we cant hide it.Every human being will cry one time or another.
    *We need to work hard to win a girl's heart..but girls can just see and win a guy's heart!
    *ya,and bald head..after 40,we're centre of every joke if we turn bald :((
    and the list goes on...

    hehe .. all true ..
    but u know girls have their share of benefits... when girls drive and get caught, they can just make some gestures and get away :P .. when girls wear shorts, they get attention while when guys do it, no one cares !! .. and after all, in case of boys, liberty comes at a price too. i am sure many guys would want to be girls, not me though :D ..

    and ya .. i have just added that 'follow' tag at the end of my blog page .. hope it works ..

    and also .. plz change ur template ..

    Atlast the female gender is realizing how fun and good it is to be a guy. LOL.. Just kidding.

    Who told you that only guys have fun. You used to have fun by making the guy wait for hours for you to dress up. Cry everytime you want something to be done. Don't have to worry about paying the bill... Much much more...

    funny post. I think all the guys have pretty much given vent to their woes of being guys, but I doubt if anybody would actually wanna turn into a woman. Can't imagine that happening. And as far as your complaints of not being able to wear shorts in public et al. go, this is India. Bahar sab allowed hai.
