i hope this is the appropriate forum for this. i thought it might be a bit too graphic for the veggie patch, but feel free to move it if not mods/Michael.<br><br>
just a little something i found posted elsewhere, origins unknown<br><br><br><br>
Why Women are Cranky<br><br><br><br>
We start to "bud" in our blouses at 9 or 10 years old only to find anything that comes in contact with those tender, blooming buds hurts so bad it brings us to tears.<br><br><br><br>
Enter the almighty, uncomfortable training bra contraption the boys in school will snap until we have calluses on our backs.<br><br><br><br>
Next, we get our periods in our early to mid-teens (or<br><br>
sooner). Along with those budding boobs, we now bloat, we cramp, we get the hormone crankies, have to wear little mattresses between our legs or insert tubular, packed cotton rods in places we didn't even know we had.<br><br><br><br>
Our next little rite of passage (premarital or not) is having sex for the first time which is about as much fun as having a ramrod push your uterus through your nostrils (IF he did it right and didn't end up<br><br>
with his little cart before his horse), leaving us to wonder what all the fuss was about.<br><br><br><br>
Then it's off to Motherhood where we learn to live on dry crackers and water for a few months so we don't spend the entire day leaning over Brother John.<br><br><br><br>
Of course, amazing creatures that we are (and we are),<br><br>
we learn to live with the growing little angels inside us steadily kicking our innards night and day making us wonder if we're having Rosemary's Baby.<br><br><br><br>
Our once flat bellies now look like we swallowed a watermelon whole and we pee our pants every time we sneeze.<br><br><br><br>
When the big moment arrives, the dam in our blessed Nether Regions will invariably burst right in the middle of the mall and we'll waddlewith our big cartoon feet moaning in pain all the way to the ER.<br><br><br><br>
Then it's huff and puff and beg to die while the OB says, "Please stop screaming, Mrs. Hearmeroar. Calm down and push. Just one more (or 10) good push," warranting a strong, well-deserved impulse to punch th e ******* (and hubby) square in the nose for making us cram a wiggling, mushroom-headed 10lb. bowling ball through a keyhole.<br><br><br><br>
After that, it's time to raise those angels only to find that when all that "cute" wears off, the beautiful little darlings morph into walking, jabbering, wet, gooey, snot-blowing, life-sucking little poop machines.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
The teen years. Need I say more? The kids are almost grown now and we women hit our voracious sexual prime in our mid-30's to early 40's while hubby had his somewhere around his 18th birthday (which just happens to be the reason all that early hot man sex got you pregnant<br><br>
in the first place).<br><br><br><br>
Now we hit the grand finale: "The Menopause," the Grandmother of all womanhood. It's either take the HRT and chance cancer in those now seasoned "buds" or the aforementioned Nether Regions, or, sweat like a hog in July, wash your sheets and pillowcases daily and bite the head off anything that moves. Now, you ask WHY women seem to be more spiteful than men when men get off so easy INCLUDING the icing on life's cake:<br><br><br><br>
Being able to pee in the woods without soaking their socks...<br><br><br><br>
Now I love being a woman but "Womanhood" would make the Great Gandhi a tad crabby.<br><br><br><br>
Women are the "weaker sex"? Yeah right. Bite me.<br><br>

Too bad that prolapse wasn't mentioned. where all that pushing out babies damages a women to the point that her insides come out of her and the doctors haven't got a clue as how to repair the damage so that it lasts.

Kegel exercises will not help when the ligament, nerves and muscles are damaged. They will however help somewhat with incontinence

Good article. Some more reasons we have to be cranky are lower pay for the same job, often being thought of as objects of sex, laughed at when we show our intelligence, called a "b" when we stand up to all those who treat us badly...and the list goes on and on and on....

Oh stop complaining about simply being the way you are, and start complaining about how your predecessors didn't teach you how to deal with it.<br><br><br><br>
There is no reason any of the things you mentioned should be a big problem, if older women communicated better with young women.<br><br><br><br>
Furthermore, nobody told the mother of my child when to push out her baby. If someone is telling you when to push, it is because you choose to have someone on hand who would tell you when to push, instead of chosing to have someone on hand who trusted your internal "instinct", for the most part, as to when to push., or instead of having no-one on hand at all. While I'm not saying doctors or midwives aren't valuable in certain situation, for most births, they are entirely unnecessary.

You don't have to hit a "voracious sexual prime" at age 30, or at any age. Neither men nor women "have" to. Sexual desire can be moderated and controlled just like any other desire.

Nobody has to tell a woman when to push, her body forces her to push, while the doctor is yelling don't push, don't push<br><br><br><br>
Anyway Men are a whole lot more crabby than women are.

I would like to say that painful breasts, painful menstruation, "morning sickness", incontinence due to pregnancy, and painful childbirth and discomfort during menopause will happen no matter what older women tell younger women. All of these things are a matter of hormonal changes in a woman's body throughout her life. No amount of "motherly" discussion will change that. The only thing that discussion about these things can do is prepare women for what to expect, and perhaps change their outlook on these things so that they <i>deal</i> with the <i>reality</i> of it in a different way.<br><br><br><br>
For the record, painful first experiences with intercourse often happen because young men aren't taught by older men how to make love with women gently, lovingly, and carefully.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I agree with this.

A man cannot FEEL what it is like to be a woman because, of course he is NOT one. I think airing our grievences is a good thing. Of course looking for the positives, too, balances it out so that we don't fall into the pits (like many of us do because we are not supposed to complain either!! Of course, I do, though.).<br><br><br><br>
On the positive side some say we are the stronger sex, are more compassionate, empathetic, caring, loyal....lol<br><br><br><br>
Individuals vary of course.

I think you should go back to airing grievances about men, and about how inconsiderate people of either sex treat you rotten, rather than about how unpleasantly you were constructed by nature -- esp if you were made normal and healthy and well.

I completely and firmly disagree that women are more compassionate, empathetic, caring, or loyal, than men. There are wide difference from woman to woman and wide differences from man to man, and I don't think the overall profile for women is any better in these areas, than it is for men.

Umm, I got painful breasts too, when I went thru puberty. It would have been even harder for me to find an adult who gave a ****, that it would be for a woman who had painful breasts during early stages of breast development. But you don't hear me complaining about this minor ailment that lasted a couple of years.

only someone who has lived their life free of menstrual cramps, "morning sickness", painful childbirth, and menopause could say such a thing!

wow! i have never heard of boys suffering from painful breasts during puberty. that is a revelation. at any rate, i fully support you if you want to complain about it. by all means, be my guest! i certainly wouldn't dare to tell anyone that they shouldn't complain about a painful experience, natural or no.<br><br><br><br>
the stigmatization of forming- and fully-formed female breasts (which is what the "bra-snapping" refers to in the original list)goes on for a lifetime in our culture, though.
