Obviously, gender inequality is a massive issue in today’s society, but just for a change, let’s have a lighter grumble about the little things, hey? Here’s 17 things men do that make us pull our hair out.

Having A Quick Shave Before Heading Out

Isn’t it delightful that men can just swipe a razor across their faces and call it grooming? After the hours of work we put in, such audacity! Can we have it be this convenient, just for a change?

Wearing the Same Suit to Every Occasion

Oh, to be a man and wear the same suit to weddings, funerals, job interviews, and random Tuesdays. As long as the tie changes, it’s like an entirely new outfit. Women? Three weddings a year mean three new dresses. At least.

Receding Hairlines as a Style Choice

We’re reaching for volumizing shampoos and elaborate hairstyles to help keep our looks in check. But somehow, a thinning crown becomes synonymous with “distinguished” when it’s atop a male head. What?

No Need for Makeup

While society often expects women to wear makeup, many men effortlessly rock the natural look every day. And if they do wear makeup, it’s “revolutionary.” Ok buddy, where’s our pat on the back?

Wearing the Same Shoes

Why can men wear the same pair of loafers everywhere while women navigate the tricky terrains of heels, flats, wedges, and “which one is more comfortable for a 4-hour event?”

Carrying Barely Anything with Them

Men can carry just three cards and some cash in a slim wallet. Why do we even bother with loyalty cards, coupons, a makeup touch-up kit, and a mini pharmacy in our purses?

They Get “Silver Fox” Status

Men get older and suddenly they’re “silver foxes.” Women get older and are handed anti-aging creams. It’s a good thing that laughter is the best natural anti-aging remedy because these standards are comical.

Having Body Hair

This one is a follow-on from the shaving point earlier, but while women are often expected to maintain smooth, hair-free skin, men can flaunt their body hair with pride and call it rugged.

No Need for ‘The Perfect Outfit’

Men can pick a shirt off the floor, wear it, and receive compliments. If a woman did the same, let’s just say the fashion police might have some questions.

Not Wearing Jewelry

We’re coordinating earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and deciding if gold clashes with silver. However, wearing the same watch daily is acceptable for men. Well, they think it is.

Not Needing A Skincare Routine

While many women have multi-step skincare routines, a lot of men think they’re indulging with just face wash and moisturizer. And they still often have impeccable skin. How?

Having Quick Bathroom Queues

At crowded events, men breeze through their restroom line while women wait, and wait, and wait. And, if we want to throw in a bonus privilege, they don’t even have to squat.

Needing Very Little for Travel

Men can often venture forth for a whole weekend armed with just one backpack. Given the amount we’re expected to bring, this seems bang out of order! Ladies, don’t stress – pack less!

Simplifying Their Laundry Routine

Isn’t it unbelievable that for men, laundry is a two-category affair? We’re decoding washing symbols like ancient hieroglyphics, and men are just throwing everything in and it… works?

Grunting to Communicate

Women are expected to articulate, elaborate, and reciprocate with full sentences. If a man grunts in agreement or as a greeting, it’s accepted as full conversation. No wonder we’re smarter.

They Don’t Have Issues with Clothing Extras

It is simply astounding that men don’t often have to fret about matching their belt to their shoes or wondering if cufflinks are too much. Perhaps it’s time we stopped caring too?

Their Hair Drying is More Convenient

While not exclusive, many men enjoy the convenience of a quick towel rub post-shower, and they’re good to go. Women might face a lengthy blow-drying and styling session. No wonder shaving hair is so popular now!
