welcome. i dont know what im doing but i know who i want to do it with.
Get a job, run for President and walk alone at night without carrying mace and looking over my shoulder.
I’d also take the opportunity to travel to places a woman can never go unaccompanied; I’d travel alone, I’d see Tunisia and Morocco and go skiing in Iran and see Russia and Mexico and camp alone.
You say this like I’d wake up shocked and horrified and appalled, but all it means to me is that I’d be free:
Free to leave dishes in the sink knowing someone else will handle them, free to have a sense of humour and take up space and not have men harass me and creep at me and make rape jokes, and free to hold a woman’s hand in public and not fear for my life.
Free to make more money, do more things, meet more people. I’d be a Human, not a woman.
This isn’t realistic whatsoever. More than likely you would get gender dysphoria.
Besides that women can already do all of those things, granted with more difficulty with some of those (barely any with a lot of them though)
I might get sex dysphoria, when I looked down and went “sweet fuck what is this weird sausage shit hanging from my crotch?”,
But I’d get over it when I saw my next paycheque and had my opinions taken seriously at my place of employment and was considered for a promotion ahead of qualified female colleagues.
I’d miss my tits, but not bad enough to cry about potentially running for office without my sex being held against me.
It’s not too wise to predict the impact of something you’ve never experienced.
You’re right. As a woman, I’ve never experienced an equal standing in the workforce and know that should I run for office, they’ll ask me about my hair, clothes and whether I think I can juggle having a family and a high powered career, as they did to Hillary Rodham-Clinton.
That’s the entire point. I’d LOVE to think I could one day be promoted to CEO of a Fortune 50 company. Of a Fortune 500. Of any company, really.
But my sex is an automatic blow to that aspiration, because men are vastly over represented in law, politics, business and health care. When in those fields, women make considerably less, even when all factors are accounted for.
So I’ll try anyways, but you’re right. I’ll probably never experience it.
I was talking about sex dysphoria not the social capital that comes with being a man. You made a prediction that money would assuage whatever sex dysphoria came with suddenly waking up in a male body.
"Get over it"
OP has no fuckin idea what dysphoria is like
OP is also trying too hard to claim shit that’s been debunked way too many goddamn times.
Then debunk them.
Go ahead, let’s see these sources. I can cite mine, what about you?
Prepare thy anus.
2 women are the majority in the work force
3 male unemployment sky high
4 some fields have women make more
5 Dads wish they had more family time.
6 (women avoid math related fields.)
7 multiple sources.
Countries with most equal laws and culture have the biggest gaps in careers due to people being free to choose their own field rather than take whatever job is available. And there is evidence that there are intrinsic differences in male vs females interest in the first day in life.
Here are some by women

The 15 Jobs Where Women Earn More Than Menhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/jennagoudreau/2011/03/14/jobs-where-women-earn-more-than-men/
Women aged between 22 and 29 earn over £10 per hour on average, compared to men their same age who earn just under this amount. http://www.womenintechnology.co.uk/news/young-women-earn-more-than-men—news-800761492
Young women now earn more than men in UKhttp://www.womensviewsonnews.org/2011/10/young-women-now-earn-more-than-men-in-uk/
The only chairwoman in the FTSE 100 index of biggest British companies, when asked about government efforts to force companies to make at least 25% of board member to be female said: “there’s no real evidence to suggest women being on a board makes the companies any better – what we’re doing here is forcing an experiment.” This was further supported in the book “Why Men Earn More” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D., examined 25 career/life choices men and women make (hours, commute times, etc.) that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives, and that showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, less physical risk and other factors conducive to their choice to be primary parents, an option men still largely don’t have. That is why never-married childless women outearn their male counterparts, and female corporate directors now outearn their male counterparts.http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN0752118220071107?feedTy…
Farrell also lists dozens of careers, including fields of science, where women outearn men. Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours. That is why 57% of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.http://edition.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/03/15/optout.revolution/ This is an option few men have (try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home).
Circumcisions kills. Circumcision decreases sexual pleasureCircumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefitsCircumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelaeCircumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behaviorCircumcision decreases penile sensitivityCircumcision associated with sexual difficultiesThe exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmissionCircumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidenceThere is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV

Of the abused men who called domestic violence hotlines, 64% were told that they “only helped women.” In 32% of the cases, the abused men were referred to batterers’ programs. Another 25% were given a phone number to call that turned out to be a batterers’ program. A little over a quarter of them were given a reference to a local program that helped.
In fiscal year 2015 the United States Government will grant Two Hundred and Twenty Two Million in Grants to Combat Violence against Women. No money is earmarked to benefit males. None
Meanwhile organizations such as NNEDV.ORG lists men not getting a job as a form of domestic violence.
You still want to keep this on an intellectual level?
It’s so sad that the only time these genuinely harmful issues that affect men are brought up is to carry on an anti-feminism agenda
You obviously are not paying attention.
We have been trying to bring attention to them for ages.
No one is listening, and 90% of feminists want it kept that way.
See the problem?
To put it simply - you have disoriented me.
Falling in love with you was like being thrown into an ocean at night.
It kisses my skin and it engulfs me, and I’m so light it feels like I’m flying, but I’m left with nothing that I need.
I don’t know which way will give me the air I need and which way will send me down further into the abyss.
Everything is chaotic
Everything is soothing.
