for all u people who said not many girls commented on this, well here you go:
no way would i wanna be a guy! i am overly dramatic and have survived being a girl so far. i would just like to point out that not all girls cry over dumb stuff, and not all girls care what people think. i dont care what people think all that much, i do my hair and try to be "pretty" cuz i want to, not for other people. I do not cry (unless like someone i loved died or something serious like that). i enjoy my messed up life as a girl. my mindset isnt necesarily girly, its just..my mindset. me and my friends think so differently, but i havent ever met a guy that thinks like me so i dont think mindset has much to do with your gender. oh id also like to point out girls arent dumb, i consider myself very intelligent-top of most of my classes. i dont think girls really need to be "protected" by guys, we can take care of ourselves u know. im a girl and thats the way i like it. id like to be a guy for a day, just to see what itd be like.

The famous "he/she's not dumb cause she's top of her class". The grades you get mean nothing. Literally, nothing (not that I'm insinuating that getting good grades is bad, and that you're stupid or anything, no no). At best, I was a C+ student throughout Primary school and most of high school, but now I'm living the dream off of my own money, wherever I basically want (Bali at the moment!) while still studying to be a pilot. Most of my peers that were A students and all that have it worse than me. And that says a lot

What matters, though, is intelligence. Of course, grades and all that have correlation to future success, but only having good grades isn't good enough.

As for living in the world of a woman for a day, I'd probably hate it. There's so many things my wife rants and worries about and it just seems too much a hassle. She worries about her hair (everywhere) all the time, clothes, shoes, and I don't know what else. Too much for me to handle.

The more I think about it, the more I like the prospect of being a girl. I think I am 80% sure I would like to be a girl permanently.

Ugh...not these sentences...

"I don't need to be protected by a man! I can do things myself and take care of myself!"
*man doesn't hold door open for girl*
"Seriously?! Not holding a door open for a girl?! ****ing pig"

What Katnip28 said is ALL true.From being a girl its exactly like it. Girls can be dramatic and annoying at times, but not all the time. Some girls can be emotional so watch out for that. Not all girls think they have to have a boyfriend,be the most popular at school, and just all that. Girls are also not that dumb!Ha there is some pretty smart ones (including me). Being a girl I think I would actually like to stay one........but im not quite sure....

I'm not denying that there aren't smart women on this world, because there's plenty of them that are smarter and more rationale than I will ever be. But don't self-proclaim yourself to be smart. It sounds snobby as hell, and you can't know for sure whether you're truly smart or not.

In comparison to teenagers, I'm smart. In comparison to my peers, I'm maybe 1/10th smarter than the average person my age. In comparison to my professors, I'm a bloody moron.

Because I am not the "typical" guy, I would just stick with staying my own gender and staying me. Plus, my graph making is kicking in... so I will make the pros and cons of being a girl and being a boy. This is just my opinion, but I think it is pretty accurate.
This is only the "average" traits though some people are the exception to a few of these.

Pros of being a boy: Um, there is one particular pro and con I am skipping... it is understood though. So moving on, you do not have the pain of child birthing (yes, I said child birthing). People seem less sexist towards men, at least from what I know.

Cons of being a boy: You mature later on average (not physically... though true. I mean mentally), most boys I know do not really comprehend the fullness of life, they are more prideful and have more of a if-you-can-do-it-I-can-do-it-better type of arogence.

Pros of being a girl: You are smarter (on average), you will likely be favored and get things as a child (that is not a average... it is practically a fact), you are naturally neater (and don't get teased when you are neat) You are a LOT less prideful, but seem less secure in yourselves. more rational

Cons: um, pain when you give birth, More sexist people against women, girls seem to gossip more though I think both sexes are bad at that, Less security and less of a strong mindset (I see girls break down quicker then guys).

Now, there are exceptions. My sister is probably the strongest girl I have seen (physically and mentally). I also now one very secure person in themselves (who is female). And I am actually very neat and I have a deeper thought pattern then most guys my age.

Sorry for the terrible grammar, but I typed this in a hurry.

I feel like girls have to worry about a bunch of more **** than men, so I'd rather stay a guy.
