Men have it pretty great in the modern world. We can thank the patriarchy for that one! Just kidding, f*ck the patriarchy. But there are some aspects of a man’s life that women just aren’t able to understand. I mean, I will never know what it’s like to have testicles that stick to my leg in the summertime, just as a man will never know what it’s like to hemorrhage menstrual blood like the prom scene in Carrie.

Men are constantly told to “man up” and “not be a p*ssy” and stifle their feelings (again, f*ck the patriarchy) — and as much as we like to think that men have it super easy — they still have difficulties and problems. Some are less shocking and sad (shouts out to boners that happen at the most inopportune times), but men must also deal with the idea that they aren’t traditionally supposed to show weakness or affection or even cry.

So let us take a moment to listen to all of the sh*t that men have to deal with on a daily basis. And let’s all work a little harder to smash the patriarchy because EVERYONE can benefit from a more open and kind society.

These are 27 aspects of a man’s life that women of the world have no idea about:


When you wake up and the piss sprays out in two separate streams, hitting everything but the toilet seat.


How weird it is for someone to choose the urinal right next to you to piss on.


Most men rarely or never have “wet dreams” that are spoken of in sex-ed class, because most men masturbate frequently enough to put semen into towels every week.


When you have a boner and clench you butt-cheeks together to reach maximum solidification.


I’ll find my hands down my pants while I’m on the couch and absolutely not remember how they got there.


How much we have to readjust our balls in the summer.
