24 Struggles Of Womanhood That Men Will Never Understand


We need to be honest here – life for a woman is damn difficult. We have to worry about maintaining society’s image of us (though men are pressured into this as well), need to bump money on things we never asked for like visits from Aunt Flo, and whenever we’re in a skirt at least three men who pass us on the street like to whistle.

It’s hard to know where to start with this one since there are definitely more than 24 struggles a woman has to deal with.

But, I decided I would pick my best ones and share them with all of you. Boys, pay close attention because this list is bound to educate you on a few things.

1. Being catcalled pretty much everywhere we turn. We should be able to leave our homes whenever we like dressed in whatever like without having to deal with harassment. To be honest, I can’t believe I even still have to put with it in this day and age. Plus, I know I’m not the only one. 

2. Periods. The absolute worst. You can’t sneeze, you can’t cough, you can’t eat anything, you get cramps. It’s like our uteruses are punishing us because we didn’t have a child to sacrifice that month. Oh, I’ve done some research and based on what men have told me and what I know of cramping, a cramp feels like a shot to your man parts. So, imagine that about five times a day for a week.

3. Bras. You know, we didn’t ask to have breasts. Yet here I am forced to drop $50.00 for an uncomfortable piece of clothing. Then there’s the added fun of having the straps dig into your shoulders or the underwire stab you in the boob. What did I ever do to them?

4. Eyebrows used to be pretty easy. A few years ago all we had to do was wax them until they were thin. Fast forward to 2017 and now we’re all filling them in to try and make them look thick and natural. Well, mine aren’t natural! These babies took a good ten minutes to fill in.
